‘Falcon and The Winter Soldier’ offers leisure punch

(KGET) – Marvel’s recent effort to create the same dominance in the television world that the company has had with movies is a top entertainment spot this week.

“The falcon and the winter soldier” class 3 ½ stars: Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan return to their roles as Falcon and Winter Soldier for this new Disney + series. That means Sam Wilson and Bucky Barnes must team up on a global adventure that will test their skills and ability to interact with each other after Captain America’s death.

When one thing became clear with Marvel’s first big foray into the Disney + streaming service world with “WandaVision”, you have to be patient. This great series slowly developed through the first three episodes before exploding into a wonderful masterpiece.

The first episode of “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier” starts slowly as most of the production is used to define the characters. Newbies to the Marvel Universe can use such an update, but it’s a waste of time for loyal fans.

At least the story needs to be turned faster as the series only contains six episodes. And there is enough in the first episode – including the type of opening battle scene normally reserved for feature films – to show that this series has the potential to be as good as WandaVision.

New on DVD and Blu-ray

“Promising young woman” class 3/12 stars: The film shows all known elements of a story of revenge. The fact that director / writer Emerald Fennell (“Killing Eve”) approaches every part of the story with a very fresh twist makes the extremely familiar subject matter fresh and original.

Throw in a near-flawless performance from Carey Mulligan (“An Education”) – that should earn her a second Oscar nomination – and “Promising Young Woman” not only promises, but delivers.

I got on like this worked many Marvel projects and seen the end as a result, and the impact they have on people, I feared that it would affect the quality of production for television, I feared that on television you can’t do the things you can in theaters can do ‘war’ and ‘endgame’ in the theaters and hearing the connection that the audience has with these characters … that’s the dream of every actor to influence an audience and get a different view of culture and the Exposing the world around us I was really scared that I wouldn’t have the opportunity to step on that ledge like the actors before me had. “

They haven’t disappointed me yet. So I just went for that Believe in their previous work. And I was really pleasantly surprised at how great it all turned out. “
