I am dead. I have died and now I am dead. The end.

(Okay, not the end. 1: How can a movie be that heartbreaking and that hilarious? 2: I LOVE EVERYONE. 3: I how can a movie be so satisfying, and so completely unsatisfying? ​Really, really liked it, though. I'm gonna have to see it again to process everything. More coherent thoughts to follow later.)

1: How can a movie be that heartbreaking and that hilarious?

Yes. This. Falcon. Bucky. WHO KNEW. I credit Seb & Anthony's highly acclaimed press tour appearances for this wondrous development. (And I want to sign all the petitions for a Cap, Bucky & Falcon road trip comedy... in a VW because it has to happen. HAS TO HAPPEN *pounds table* DO YOU HEAR ME MARVEL!!)

Also: Sam, honey, that's not what Peggy meant when she said to say, "No, YOU move..."


Same. Except for Ross. I despise Ross. Even with what Zemo did, at least he stirs some *small* sympathetic response. But not Ross. He is the very embodiment of everything awful about bureaucratic, power-hungry, arrogant flunkies who set aside civil rights when it suits him. Don't get me started... I want to hear your thoughts before I go on a rant.

But yes. I still love them all. Even though Tony did go all Murder Bucky Naow, his motivations are understandable and somehow I'm left thinking that there's still a path toward resolution on some level between them.

T'CHALLA!!! T'CHALLA!!! T'CHALLA!!!!!!!!!! I must have more of him and I may explode waiting for the Black Panther movie.

3: I how can a movie be so satisfying, and so completely unsatisfying?

After having seen it 3 times now and after having time to ruminate, read meta at tumblr, form my own meta... I have no answer to this. Except that the more I see the movie, the more satisfied I am??? And the more I think on the plot points and the strings left dangling, the more I recognize that this is yet another episode in the movie *series* and even though it pains me greatly having to wait a YEAR if not more sometimes to get the next episode... it still *satisfies* me.

"My name is Bucky." <==== STILL NOT OVER THAT MOMENT. NEVER WILL BE OVER THAT MOMENT. I need the DVD now so I can replay that moment over and over while I cry into my pillow.

Also... PLUMS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Captain America: Bucky Just Wanted Some Plums was such a good movie. XD

SAM, CAP, AND BUCKY ROAD TRIP, YES! The Sam and Bucky dynamic I absolutely did not expect, and it is awesome. See, Marvel thinks we want bigger and ever more impressive spectacles, and yeah, those can be good, but mostly what we want is grocery shopping and road trips and random snarking at each other in the course of daily life.

But, uh, yeah. Ross and Zemo get exemptions from the universal character love. :P Ross.... ooooh man. That is some scary stuff, and it gets scarier the more you think about it. I mean, initially, as heartbreaking as it is, you can kind of see a rational argument for restraining Bucky like that - not knowing his mental state or physical capabilities, as a very temporary situation until more reasonable accommodations could be arranged, it would be a way to keep him from hurting himself or anyone else. Later events, though, make it pretty clear it probably wasn't intended to be particularly temporary. Because for all he did, restraining Zemo in that way when he'd never demonstrated any unusual capabilities that'd even argue for its necessity... wow. I don't know that you could come up with a better arrangement for driving a person literally insane in very short order.

T'CHALLA IS AWESOME, THOUGH. I am really looking forward to seeing more of him as a friend.

And I really, really do think that the situation between Tony, Cap, and Bucky ended in as good a place as it could for this movie. Tony's always been very emotionally driven, and he got completely blindsided on a particularly hot-button topic at a time when he was already off-balance and having a personal crisis on several levels (and without Pepper to help bring some perspective). Despite all that, it really didn't feel like things got pushed beyond repair in the end - especially given Steve's readiness to apologize, extend an olive branch, and quickly make the first steps toward that resolution (because we all know if it was left to Tony to make the first move...uh, probably gonna be waiting a while).

"Captain America: Bucky Just Wanted Some Plums was such a good movie. XD"

PLUMS. (This is going to be the new "Thor is obsessed with Pop Tarts," isn't it?)

Really, really need to see it again. Gonna have to figure out the earliest my dad can get to it. He hasn't seen it yet, soooo... good excuse.

This movie made me come home and gorge myself on Bucky HC (and, er, you wouldn't happen to know of any more good Bucky HC would you?)

I knoooooow. Poor Bucky. They really, really need to give him some happy stuff in the upcoming movies. (Ooooh, Bucky H/C stories... Things have been so crazy I haven't even had time to look for recent stuff here, but if you haven't been reading Cairistiona's stories they are excellent.)

Thanks for the author rec :D I hate searching for fic. In a small fandom it's never a big deal, but a fandom as big as the MCU... it scares me, I won't lie.

Bucky is just a little fountain of hurt/comfort in need of more comfort. Thank goodness for Cap!

I know what you mean! MCU is huuuuge, and tends to be so heavily dominated by intense slash shippers that diving in to find new stuff can be intimidating, to say the least. XP

Thank goodness for Cap, indeed! I do think that what we really need out of the next movie is a crazy road trip comedy. Not gonna happen, of course... but I want it.
