Captain America: The Winter Soldier Out on DVD Tomorrow
Thinking back, Captain America: The Winter Soldier just might be my favorite Marvel superhero movie. Sure, it isn’t on as huge a scale as The Avengers and it doesn’t have the wackiness of Guardians of the Galaxy, but it also doesn’t have the sexism of the latter or the yet-another-dark-villain of either. So overall, it’s more balanced, less of a guilty pleasure and more just pleasure.
Out tomorrow on home video is the movie, starring Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Anthony Mackie, and Sebastian Stan in a story of betrayal and friendship. Man, that sounds sappy, doesn’t it? But those are the themes that make me want to see the movie again, those questions of who can be trusted. Here’s a trailer for the Blu-ray release:
The Blu-ray includes making-of featurettes, commentary, deleted scenes, and bloopers, while the single-disc DVD has one featurette and deleted scene.
I am disappointed that Disney has cut back on its packaging. For a release-day price of about $20, you used to get a combo pack with Blu-ray and DVD (and originally, a digital copy). Now, to get a variety of formats, you have to upgrade to their 3-D package, which for most people, is a waste, since I don’t know anyone that watches 3-D at home. For $20, you only get a single Blu-ray disc. I suppose that’s the main way I’m going to watch the film anyway.
