I just went to see it and came away a little disappointed. Chris Evans did a decent job but the story wasn't that good after he rescued Bucky. I also thought the technology was to advanced for the period. I know part of the Nazi lore was advanced weaponry but I think they took it to far. I agree that they rushed this to get to the Avengers movie. I give it a C.


how accurate do you expect a comic book /  character to be?

I know Hollywood is going to take some liberties. Just like the storyline of CA selling war bonds was not true to the origin; however they made it fit within the storyline. That was ok.
What I don't like is adhering to the period in most of the set and then totally disregarding it when it comes to technology and war themes. I mean you had storm troopers with pulse laser guns and stealth bombers. Cholly is right, they dumbed it down for the masses. Even though most of the reviews were good it was not Marvels best work.

Will they grow in North Carolina?

Mahalia Jackson's Okra Gumbo

4 Blue crabs, lg
1 1/2 lb Beef stew meat, in 1" cubes
1 lb Link sausage, sliced
1 lb Cooked ham, cut in 1" cubes
1 lb Salt pork, cut in 1/2" cubes
1/2 lb Chicken gizzards, sliced
2 cn Whole tomatoes (1-lb 12 oz)
4 Bay leaves, crumbled
2 Onions, lg, diced
2 Gn bell peppers, lg, diced
5 Celery stalks, diced
4 Cloves garlic, crushed
2 lb Chicken wings and backs
1 1/2 lb Okra, fresh
1/4 c Sugar
1/4 c Parsley flakes, dried
Salt, pepper
Hot cooked rice
Hot pepper sauce (optional)
Crackers (optional)
4 lb Shrimp

Clean crabs, discarding spongy substance in main shell. Reserve
claws and other meaty portions.

Clean shrimp, reserving shells. Place shrimp shells in deep
saucepan with water to cover generously and
simmer 30 minutes or longer to make broth.

Pour oil into heavy skillet to depth of 1/8 inch. Heat and add
beef, ham, sausage, gizzards and salt pork. Saute until lightly
browned, stirring occasionally.

Pour meat mixture into large kettle and add 1 can tomatoes and
enough strained shrimp broth to cover generously. Add bay leaves,
cover and simmer about 30 minutes. Heat 2 tablespoons more oil in
skillet and add onions, green peppers, celery and garlic. Saute
until lightly browned, stirring now and then.

Add vegetable mixture and chicken parts to kettle and simmer 30
minutes longer.

Heat 2 tablespoons oil in another heavy skillet, add okra and cook,
stirring often, until lightly browned and loses stickiness, about
30 minutes. Add shrimp to okra and saute 3 or 4 minutes longer, or
until shrimp turns pink. Stir in 2 tablespoons sugar. Add okra
mixture to kettle.

Drain second can of tomatoes, reserving liquid. Add tomatoes, crab
and enough tomato liquid and water from shrimp shells to keep
mixture in kettle soupy. Simmer about 30 minutes.

Add parsley flakes and remaining 2 tablespoons sugar.

Season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve at once or refrigerate
and reheat later. Serve over hot rice in deep soup bowls. Pass hot
pepper sauce and crackers with gumbo, if desired.

Serves 6

Gizzards gotta go!

Tyrese Gibson would be a much better choice.

My question is why in the heyal did Marvel get the same actor, Chris Evans to play Johnny Storm and Capt. America?

This is an admirable endeavor but probably a little overambitious. Before anything of this magnitude can come to fruition Black owned banks will have to improve their infrastructure by making major investments in upgrading in technology. Most of em including M&F are at least 10 years behind in this area.

Don't know what America is ready for...all I know is that I don't want to see it and I WILL not watch it..

Right behind you!

Wow... :lol:

To be so open with it, I wonder how many others she approached like this in the past? Sounds funny but at the same time that could have went south in a hurry if she felt disrespected or rejected and she was vengeful. I mean how many sexual harassment claims are started like this? And it wasn't even your fault Cholly!  :o 

Thank God it didnt go down like that though. I guess when she is around you need a female in the room. :nod:

P, girl had a big smile on her face when I left... just like nothing ever happened.  :shrug:

Yeah, man I bet you trembled worse than crack addict sitting on a block of ice.  I'm glad you did the right thing but I bet yo a-- was SCED!!   :lol:

Sorry it never happened to me.  ::) OH GOD I MUST BE UGLY!  :'( I mean it happened to Cholly and he admitted he's not a looker.  :tongue2:


I have met both you and CHOLLY in person before.  And YES you are ugly, j/k.   :lmao:

 :lmao: :lmao:

Serena should be more modest in the way she dresses. In my opinion she sets a very poor example for African American teens and young ladies. She doesn't vote, practices tennis half heartedly and dresses like a high price hooker.
 I recall a few year back when she and Venus came to Charlotte to do an exhibition and how she acted like she didn't want to be there. All in front of young ladies, including my daughter who idolized her. I was hoping the past year of serious injuries would give her proper perspective.   :no:

This will be interesting. I have an htc Evo which I adsolutely love along with the google operating system.

Unlike what they did with her book (groups like WND buying up thousands and essentially giving them away in return for a subscription or something else) to make it look like sales were really good, I guess they forgot to buy up lots of movie tickets and then give them away in order to pack the theaters.

Wow, I'm also shocked local republicans didnt buy blocks of tickets. I think they may be trying to send her a message.
