IT IS UNUSUAL for a PAYING/"CIVILIAN" AUDIENCE to LAUGH at a MOVIE TRAILER (THESE DAZE, THAT's ESPECIALLY TRUE IF the MOVIE is a COMEDY!) BUT the PREVIEW for http://www.razzies.com/forum/forum540.html - , WHICH WAS on the HEAD of http://www.razzies.com/forum/official-razzie-take-on-green-lantern-2011_topic5137.html - , DREW MORE THAN a FEW SNICKERS.
BASED on a COMIC BOOK "SUPER HERO" SO OUT-DATED ABOUT 90% of MODERN AUDIENCES HAVE ALL BUT FORGOTTEN HE EVEN EXISTED, CAPTAIN APPARENTLY AIMS to BE a "THROWBACK MOVIE," ATTEMPTING to REPLICATE the "THRILLS and SPILLS" of 1930s MOVIE SERIALS LIKE http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0032290/ - and http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0027623/ -
BUT THERE's a REASON HOLLYWOOD NO LONGER MAKES MOVIE SERIALS -- THE BERRY CONCEPT of CLIFF-HANGER ACTION, TOO-GOOD-to-BE-TRUE HEROES and DAMSELS in NEED of RESCUE from DISTRESS IS OF LITTLE or NO INTEREST to the CORE MOVIE-GOING AUDIENCE. SO, EVEN IF the MAKERS of CAPTAIN AMERICA DID THEIR WORK PERFECTLY, THERE MAY BE NO AUDIENCE for THIS KINDA STUFF.
AND, DESPITE THEIR HAVING BEEN GIVEN a BUDGET in the $150 MILLION RANGE, the MAKERS of THIS CAPTAIN SEEM to HAVE GOTTEN ALMOST NOTHING RIGHT. THE http://c0181321.cdn.cloudfiles.rackspacecloud.com/PHkYUihf1BBsns_4_m.jpg%20 - LOOK RIDICULOUS, THE LEADING MAN VIOLATES GROUCHO MARX's RULE ABOUT CLEAVAGE* the http://c181321.r21.cf0.rackcdn.com/PHMa3R9v9SstPS_2_m.jpg - LOOKS LIKE the VICTIM of an INDUSTRIAL ACCIDENT INVOLVING HOT KETCHUP, http://c181321.r21.cf0.rackcdn.com/PHHbE58eodJIKL_1_m.jpg - LOOKS LIKE SOMETHING OUT of http://image.automotive.com/f/exotic-cars/chitty-chitty-bang-bang-heads-to-australia-really/6294514%2Bw570%2Bcr1%2Bre0%2Bar1/chitty-chitty-bang-bang-front-leftjpg.jpg - , and the WHOLE THING LOOKS LIKE YET ANOTHER ROTE EXERCISE in "GIVING the AUDIENCE WHAT THEY WANT."
WE SUSPECT FEW AUDIENCES WILL "WANT" THIS MOVIE. IF YOU'D LIKE to AGREE, DISAGREE, or JUST RESPOND, HERE's the http://www.razzies.com/forum/member-discussion-of-captain-america_topic5190.html - to JOIN OUR DISCUSSION...
* Groucho once famously said of 1950s "beefcake" star Victor Mature: "I refuse to see any movie where the man's tits are bigger than the woman's..."
THE CAPTAIN: "Excuse me...my eyes are up here!"
SOLDIER GAL: "Okay, but...where is your brain?!?"
