Happy Tuesday everyone! This week is a very weird week. In my opinion nothing worth buying is being released so instead I picked a re-release that came out last week. Captain America: The Winter Soldier is the pick of the week in honor of Endgame coming out last week and the fact that this is one of the best entry in the MCU.
After the cataclysmic events in New York with his fellow Avengers, Steve Rogers, aka Captain America (Chris Evans), lives in the nation’s capital as he tries to adjust to modern times. An attack on a S.H.I.E.L.D. colleague throws Rogers into a web of intrigue that places the whole world at risk. Joining forces with the Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) and a new ally, the Falcon, Rogers struggles to expose an ever-widening conspiracy, but he and his team soon come up against an unexpected enemy. – Marvel Studios
Included with the Blu-ray:
- 4K Blu-ray Disc
- Digital HD
- Special Features
- On the Front Line: An Inside Look at Captain America’s Battlegrounds (10:12)– Most would agree that The Winter Soldier’s greatest strength is its action, and this short featurette provides a closer look at how the filmmakers designed the set pieces and how they were eventually brought to life. It’s a fascinating watch that highlights how dedicated the actors were to getting the stunts right and the impressive practical effects.
- On Set With Anthony Mackie: Cut the Check (1:56) – This featurette ultimately boils down to a series of scenes where Mackie, after finishing a take he likes, will yell out, “Cut the Check.” It’s funny to see the always-charismatic actor in action, but the bit is far too short. It would have been nice to hear a little more about what Mackie brings to the table as Sam Wilson and to see him interact with his fellow cast members since he is absent from the ‘On the Front Line’ featurette.
- Deleted/Extended Scenes
- Gag Reel
- Audio Commentary
- Steve Roger’s Notebook
You can buy The Winter Soldier here.
I’m not even going to tell you what is available this week. Do you really wanna buy Miss Bala? I think not.
Next week everything is awesome.
