Well, he got off that just in time - somewhat energetically.

Why is she weeping? He's safe, or is he going to have to sort out the tank now?

Golly I sooooo admire these stunt men. How many times did he fall off I ask? is that why she's crying? I would!!! OUCH!

Oh no, the two gifs are of the same person--Bucky, i.e. The Winter Soldier, who is plays a sort of antagonist role in the film; he's a programmed killer, basically. The protagonists are the ones inside the car, when he smashes through the windshield.

So on one hand, the Winter Soldier is brutal--there's a lot of fighting, but his style is not like anyone else's, neither elegant nor stylish, just brutal. But...the Winter Soldier is also Steve's friend (his best friend from childhood) who fell into the grips of HYDRA (Nazi-adjacent science organization), who literally brainwashed him into a killing machine. So I'm conflicted. On one hand, merciless killer. On the other, poor baby :(

(For the record, the second picture is referencing what the Winter Soldier looks like unmasked (he also has a shirtless scene during the brainwashing which is why I think he's naked) This is when we first see him: http://dorkaholics.files.wordpress.com/2014/03/55a6e3f3_4a4wxtw.jpeg?w=648
and then unmasked: http://dorkaholics.files.wordpress.com/2014/02/fz-18759_r.jpg?w=474&h=315.)

There were so many stunts, omg. I have no idea! But they all looked super cool in the film :P

YUMMY... he's the dark and brooding sort, isn't he. BUT I've had enough of dark and broody ones... I love the SUNNY SMILES now... Beany does me well with his.

It's become a fad of the movie makers now... everyone is 'programmed' to do something. Horrid thort! I know we are programmed to survive most things, or should be, but these guys don't half go through it.
And the armour makers must be having a whale of a time! I wonder if there's a vast hanger somewhere piled HIGH with rusting and unwanted any more armour?

Yers... I feel I might have missed out on Captain America... did I? Is is a sequel or to do with the Avengers?

Oh, yes! I think they emphasize the dark and brooding parts, in part because he plays opposite to (and as a foil for) the protagonist, who's blonde and tall and here's a picture, it says it better than me: him as a soldier http://img3.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20120708120030/marvelcinematicuniverse/images/f/f2/Captain-america-marvel09.jpg
as Captain America http://thesmashable.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/06/Marvel-The-Avengers-Movie-2012-HD-Wallpaper-Captain-America-Steve-Rogers-31.jpg

Though hm, he doesn't smile much. I think probably the smiliest, goldenest one is Thor: (thank youuuu tumblr)

Hahaha yes I wonder where they store all the props! Everyone's got wild clothing.

This one is the sequel, yep--Captain America: The Winter Soldier (the first is Captain America: the First Avenger). Captain America is one of the Avengers and was part of the movie The Avengers, but this is his individual film. I'm not sure how familiar you are with the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but basically they have several films focusing on individual characters (Iron Man, Thor, Captain America) and unite them periodically as Avengers (so The Avengers, and then in 2015 the second one is supposed to come out.)

OOOOH MYOMY!!!! That piccy stunned me - honestly! GOD.. he's beautiful in the true sense.

I don't know any of these films, not been broken in properly I haven't!!! I think I shall have to start... good old Youtube I hope! But I only know the Avengers through Rubyelf's ongoing rather super fic. she's on chapter 45, and I do enjoy all her characters so much. And THOR.. the golden Thor is one of my (from her) favourites. I did see Iron Man one and two and really enjoyed them, and Captain America was on several times last month in our local cinema, and I just didn't.... dammit! wish I had now!

I've checked on Thor, Chris Hemsworth?... not as pretty in RL tho!!! teehee. I'm a terrible perver.

Edited to add... I LOVE THAT GIF... and the cheeky wink at the end. THANKS tumblir from me too. and you!

He is so beautiful. I remember around the time the Thor 2 trailers were coming out, someone was saying it was ridiculous--he was even more beautiful than Natalie Portman (who plays opposite him).

Ahh, yeah, the fandom is what got me into the Avengers in the first place. I rarely watch films, but the fandom was big and producing lots of fic and art so I went and watched them and now I'm hooked /o\

Captain America should still be playing in theatres! Well, it is here, but I think it got released earlier in Europe (we had a premiere date of...Apr 4th I think?) So it might still be out :)

That first gif makes me laugh so much. "I steal your steering wheel! *leaps away*"

(And thank you for giving proper artist credit. Some people are such jerks about this. I shouldn't have to PM someone to say "hey you know that thing where you're using someone's art without credit or permission as cover for your novel-in-progress? It's pretty fucking rude".)
Apr. 19th, 2014 12:45 am (UTC)
Haha, yeah, the looping of the gif means that it kind of looks like he's endlessly stealing the steering wheels but in the theatre that was the moment that really brought to mind how ruthless he was. On the other hand...*facepalm*

(Eugh, that's awful. I really wonder where they think art comes from--do they think it just appears online magically?)
Apr. 19th, 2014 09:28 pm (UTC)
Yeah, that was a super great moment. He's pretty ruthless, but there's something hilarious about his strategy for stopping the car is to steal the steering wheel.

(Well, she reacted graciously to the PM and edited the thiung to give credit, so I'm willing to say she might have genuinely not known/forgot.)
Apr. 20th, 2014 03:05 am (UTC)
Hey, it's effective! They exit the car shortly after! :D

(Ahh, that's good to hear at least!)
Apr. 19th, 2014 02:23 pm (UTC)
Aww, I love the bottom one! So conflicted. It would be an odd twist if he WERE endlessly stealing steering wheels.
Apr. 19th, 2014 07:58 pm (UTC)
Oh god, it'd be like Grand Theft Auto, except with steering wheels. Captain America: GTA.

It's so adorable! Clearly it is the best depiction of the Winter Soldier.
