I am catching up on some posts, some of which I started quite awhile ago but didn't have the time or the inspiration to finish. Please bear with me! Would you believe I have over 40 unfinished posts?...
Things were really heating up in RA Land this July!
And believe me, it was pretty hot here too **fans self**
|Richard Armitage as Heinz Kruger in Captain America|
He looks really nasty in this shot!
|Oooo! You are very scary like this Richard! I wish you were the hero!|
I dedicate this song to Richard Armitage because of his amazing talent, he can draw hundreds of middleaged women into a theatre to watch a movie made about a comic book character (that they would normally have absolutely zero interest in). But not only that, they are not there to watch the main character and star of the movie, but to see a cameo performance of a relatively unknown actor playing a minor role as one of the villains! Here is RAfrenzy's post about that! :)

My husband and my daughter came with me to watch it. We all enjoyed the movie, and I behaved myself and didn't make inappropriate squeeing noises when Richard was on screen. But I opened my eyes as wide as I could and prayed not to blink so I wouldn't miss a nanosecond of his performance!
The whole movie was much better than I had even hoped. I would have gone to it even without Mr. Armitage in it, as I do like comic book heroes and World War II movies too. All the actors were very good in it, but I have to admit, I was just not as interested once RA's part in it was over. Too many action scenes usually bore me, so when the explosions started getting out of hand I nearly nodded off. (Mind you, the movie ended near midnight - but I am a nighthawk so whatever!) I am not much for writing movie reviews so if you want to read a really great detailed review, see this one at my blogger buddy Ruth's Book Talk & More.

Chris Evans as Captain America is manhandling the Nazi villain Heinz Kruger
played by, (you guessed it!) Richard Armitage.
Yes, he's a Nazi spy who just killed the scientist,
but if you knew him -- he's really not so bad!!
Look at the absolute conviction on his face in this gif made by Jonia. (It might not work on my page so please check out her post here at Jonia's Cut).
For more information about this Heinz Kruger character,
please see Musa's post at her blog: White Rose: Sincere and Simple Thoughts.
It was amazing to watch him on a big screen!
How can we be patient until The Hobbit finally gets to theatres?
