Action-packed flick ignites the screen

Before I get into our regularly-scheduled program, I just want to say congratulations. Whether you just finished your first semester or you’re finally walking across the stage next week, you deserve a break. I think I speak for everyone when I say that it’s been a long semester for the Towson community, and the summer is about to be welcomed with open arms.
I have loved searching for all the crazy things celebrities did and reviewing big events and award shows for you all this past semester. It gives me some validity for when all I want to do is talk about the Kardashian/Jenner/Blac Chyna/Tyga situation.
If you don’t know what I’m talking about, just Google it, because honestly, I’m not even sure if I fully understand it. I could take up the whole newspaper just trying to make it all make sense.
This summer, I am moving to New York City to intern for Clevver Networks to continue to learn more about celebrities than I probably know about my own family. So, I want to say thank you for giving me an outlet to do what I love.
Now we can move on, and I can talk about something that I have literally not been able to stop thinking about since Thursday night – Chris Evans’ arms. I saw “Captain America: Civil War” opening night and it has risen to being my second favorite Marvel movie, just after the first “Avengers” movie, and not just because Evans has the best muscular arms I have ever seen.
I promise there will be no spoilers, but I was blown away, and it exceeded every expectation I had. It was action-packed without having too much CGI, shocking and actually really funny.
Even if you’ve never been into action movies or have seen any of the prior movies, I would still suggest you see this as soon as possible just for the sake of being able to chime in on all the conversations that will inevitably stem from it.
My only issue with it was that Hulk and Thor were noticeably missing. While I know that their characters are off doing other important science-y things, I was still hoping for a surprise return.
Thankfully, Chris Hemsworth, who plays Thor, made up for his absence by posting a hilarious video of him working out and dissing the other Avengers for not inviting him to the battle.
I am already trying to find time to see this movie again and will most definitely be having a “Captain America” movie marathon when it is released on DVD.
