I’m not really even sure where to put this one on the list.  It’s better than Thor, at least it struck me as less hokey.  But it wasn’t really great.  There were some good special effects (in particular, the shrinking of Chris Evans’s body when he played skinny Steve).  I actually liked the skinny Steve storyline more; I found it funnier and heart-warming.  They worked valiantly to make the 2nd half of the film as un-dorky as possible and I think they mostly succeeded.  Though, the Red Skull was really hard to take seriously.  He looked silly and he sounded too much like Werner Hertzog.  I kept expecting him to talk about 300,000 year old footprints.
