Midnight Showing: Captain America: Civil War (2016)

Back to the Marvel Cinematic Universe we go with the latest and greatest installment, Captain America: Civil War. The guys talk about how the film succeeds in ways that DC’s foil from this year Batman v Superman failed, how it takes just a little (and a lot of mega-stars) to make a great superhero flick, and perhaps the film’s greatest asset: its characters. Civil War introduces many new faces to the fray, but they feel utterly at home by film’s end, and it goes to show how devoting a little time to characterization can go a very, very long way.
