Captain American

October 22, 2011

About 2 weeks ago i was in the mood for an American propaganda flick, this movie did not disappoint. USA policing the world fighting evil bringing freedom and liberty to savages around the globe. Inspire young Americans to fight in today’s pointless wars by glorifying WWII. But despite popular opinion formed from movies and video games, individuals are not successful in war. You will not ‘find your identity’ in war. Your best bet to stay alive and help your fellow soldiers is to toe the line, be like everyone else and do exactly as you’re told….Ok enough ranting, as stated earlier i was in the mood for this……So now, finally, the reason why i am typing. ….Disgusted that Hitler wasn’t evil enough, the movie’s villain goes rogue and splits from the Nazi. I never got into 40’s era propaganda comics but, they’re kidding right, Hitler wasn’t a big enough villain? They actually needed to create a WWII character who is worse than Hitler. Although you can’t see it, i am shaking my head.
