No one cares about this countdown but me.

5) Pillow Talk -Zayn

So we’ll piss off the neighbours | In the place that feels the tears | The place to lose your fears | Yeah, reckless behaviour | A place that is so pure, so dirty and raw | Be in the bed all day, bed all day, bed all day | Fucking in, fighting on | It’s our paradise and it’s our war zone | It’s our paradise and it’s our war zone | Pillow talk | My enemy, my ally (AZ Lyrics)

4) Close – Nick Jonas ft. Tove Lo

Cause if I want you, and I want you, babe | Ain’t going backwards, won’t ask for space | Cause space was just a word made up by someone who’s afraid to get to | Close, ooh | Oh, so close, ooh | I want you close, ooh | Cause space was just a word made up by someone who’s afraid to get close, ooh | Oh, so close, ooh | I want you close, ooh | Oh, I want you close, and close ain’t close enough, no (AZ Lyrics)

Movie Insights: 3 Reasons Why I Love Captain America: Civil War

Warning: Have you seen the film? If not, I might spoil your excitement.

Reason 1:

CACW is a superhero film with a heart and soul.

I watched it yesterday. It’s great. All my expectations were met (I was surprised!). I even asked for more when it ended.

I observe the overall feel of the story (dialogues, action scenes, tone) has similarities with The Winter Soldier. The intensity of storytelling fluctuates. It slows down when it needs to and it goes high when it matters.

The film preserves the substance and depth, which other superhero films fail to deliver. It seems as if I’m not watching a fiction story at all. Instead, it’s goes beyond comics. Then, it’s converted into a film but with a twist of reality.

This is the first time that I get to see a team of superheroes but each is vulnerable. Each shows their emotions. Each has conflicts to solve.

Reason 2:

CACW balances the edit.

It’s a war film. Therefore, I expect fights and explosions (Remember the Airport scene, anyone?). It’s a team superhero film. Therefore, there are famous celebrities here and there.

Thank God the film still delivers a balance edit. It gives the right amount of airtime to each celebrity in such a way that it maintains the smooth-sailing flow of the story.

For this reason, I can’t wait to see the never-before-scenes once the Blu-ray version is released. Like The Winter Soldier, Civil War is also the kind of film that I’ll watch again and again without getting tired. Memorable line: “I can do this all day.”

Reason 3:

CACW tells a story of an unconditional friendship.

I’m not taking Iron Man (portrayed by Robert Downer Jr.), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Spider-Man (Tom Holland), etc. out of the equation. They’re all great characters. They bring different layers of entertainment in the story.

It’s unbelievable Ant-Man (Paul Rudd) is also a real big fan of Cap. He’s a great fan. He never disappoints. Team Cap must be proud!

However, the film centers on Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) and Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan). Take note I mention their real names. It’s because I don’t see the superhero with special powers in them. I saw the human side of them and how they stand for each other even if the world is against them.

From the start, Rogers knows he’s the only person who can protect Barnes. It isn’t only a matter of what is right and lawful. It goes beyond that. It’s risky and Rogers knows it. He, however, never hesitates to follow what his gut dictates.

Tracing back to First Avenger, Skinny Rogers had no one but Sergeant Barnes in his side. Rogers was bullied and Barnes was there to protect him. They’re best friends. As Captain America, Rogers’ world collapsed when he failed to save Barnes from death.

In The Winter Soldier, a resurrected Barnes was completely brainwashed to kill Rogers. Yet, despite of all the fights, it ended Barnes saving Rogers from drowning.

Fast forwarding to Civil War, Rogers and Barnes prove their friendship is unconditional. It’s stronger than the Avengers’ mission to save the world. It’s endless even if it means Barnes chooses to freeze himself until his condition gets better.

My overall rating: 4.5 of 5 stars!
