Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Anthony Russo & Joe Russo (2014)
I have a ridiculous attachement to the first Captain America film regardless of it’s sometimes questionable quality. So it was such a pleasant surprise to come back to this franchise with a movie that was actually not that bad. There is substance! There is critical content (even if I’m disappointed that they purposely “rehabilitated” the CIA and FBI in the epilogue)! There is a female co-star that isn’t a romantic interest! Actual interesting emotional plot-lines (The Avengers is entertaining but you have to admit it did nothing for the furthering of any character’s story). tldr: I really enjoyed it.
