Join the Cinema Excelsior team for an inexplicable trip to Italy as they endure director Albert Pyun's 1990 epic Captain America, starring Matt Salinger (son of Catcher in the Rye author J.D. Salinger), Scott Paulin, and Ronny Cox. Daniel reminiscenes about his childhood experience watching this film in syndication. Nick learns an exciting new method for stealing cars. Derek finds his voice as a screenwriter. Stefan yearns for a cool, refreshing Molson. It's all part of a last-ditch attempt to understand how this runaway nuclear missle of a film could have been gently nudged so far off course.
Cinema Excelsior is a podcast dedicated to analyzing and understanding the films of Marvel Comics. Our roundtable of film PhDs, screenwriters, and comic book nerds tries to understand what makes each film succeed or fail as an adaptation, a commercial enterprise, and a piece of art.
