CA WINTER SOLDIER discs

Welcome back to This Week In Discs! If you see something you like, click on the title to buy it from Amazon. Captain America: The Winter Soldier Steve Rogers/Captain America (Chris Evans) is still trying to fit in to the modern world while working for SHIELD on a regular basis.

No, thinking this way wouldn’t be crazy at all, so its understandable that some people might feel a reluctance to watch a trailer for a new found footage movie about the search for Bigfoot. But Willow Creek has a great argument to make for its existence, even though it’s another movie about people stumbling around in the woods scared, and even though its subject is as ridiculous and non-terrifying as the mythical Sasquatch. Said argument is that it’s the latest film from director of challenging and rewarding films World’s Greatest Dad and God Bless America, Bobcat Goldthwait, which instantly makes it of interest.
