The action figure looks great, a very detailed portrait of a real man! But does not look like Chris Evans. Tell we what I have missed, maybe there has been another movie and this is an action figure of another actor?

This is the action figure of Captain America, The Infinity ((something).  I haven't seen the last few starring Chris Evans. Perhaps his hair is longer in that film.

I've never seen any GOOD action figure replicas.  RA as Thorin wasn't all that good either.

Above, it may look a little closer to Chris if his hair was shorter. They certainly come a long way in making these figures. It's almost like looking at a snapshot. The furrowed brow is great.

At your earliest opportunity.

For Christmas, you can hope for a Christmas package present from him.  :fav355:

Yeah, Chris Evans has much longer hair and a beard in this latest movie, Avengers: Infinity War. The action figure still doesn't look that much like him, but as you say, it's definitely closer than they used to be

Doesn't he tire of that character?

Gifted was a blessing for me. I quite enjoy his acting and good looks, but I tire of the superhero.

The character has definitely developed since the first film. He's not as blindly trusting of authority now because he's seen how corrupt it is

As for him personally, it's probably been good for him because it's given him more exposure and influence. He can now act in and direct movies that he has a genuine interest in even if they'll never be big box office hits

I still haven't watched Gifted yet. It's on my (very long!) list of things to watch

Wow, that's a really nice figure! Not a spot-on likeness, maybe, but action figures are definitely getting more realistic, even the cheaper ones!

I wonder that sometimes about Chris Evans too...though with the way things are going for Marvel, it might not be an issue much longer--after Infinity War, it looks like they'll probably take the overall connecting story in a totally different direction, since IW is basically the culmination of the latest generation of Marvel films. I don't know if they'll be featuring Captain America and some of the other old standby characters much more, since their stories are wrapping up...I'll be kind of sad to see things change, but I'm really curious as to where they'll take things now!

Ooh, I still need to see Gifted too! I literally just saw a gif from it earlier today and thought, man...I really need to see that movie soon! It looked like a great one.

I watched a trailer of IW and was surprised just how much Chris looks like his action figure.  His hair was THAT long.

As for GIFTED - 

See it soon.  I've watched it at least 5 times.

I'll have to try to find it soon for sure! It looks very sweet and heartfelt. It seems like a new genre for Chris Evans--and I'm happy to see more of him in any context! :D

I've seen this movie now! I got the chance to watch it on the plane on the way home from one of my recent work trips. It was so lovely! I had to try really hard not to cry on the plane in front of strangers  LOL

It was such a well-done film with great acting, and it had lots of wonderful moments. It brought up some interesting/important ideas about giftedness and psychology and what our responsibility is to use the talents we've been given, etc.--good stuff.

And that scene where Frank takes Mary and Roberta to the hospital waiting room--so good! I teared up a lot during that part...hopefully my seatmates didn't notice too much  LOL

I loved everything about that movie.  That little girl was perfect.  I liked when she jumps on the stomach of a reclined Chris - it almost knocked the wind out of me.... and when she climbs on him at the beach.... and then the "Special K" breakfast.

And the cat and the neighbor ... gotta love 'em both.  Great casting, I thought.

Agreed on all counts! A great movie all around. It was a treat to watch!

The dynamic between Chris's character and the little girl's was so perfect, too. I loved their philosophical conversations, and the way Chris's character took her thoughts seriously, and wanted to make sure she was forming her own opinions. The love and respect between them was captured beautifully!

I loved that cat as well--so great ^_^

This was a good movie. I saw it on the plane too BEB!  I have trouble hearing the dialogue on the plane with those ear buds, so I miss half of what is said. I’ll  have to watch it again when it’s on TV.  And no, I didn’t watch it while I was working!

The one-eyed cat was adorable.

  • The 1988 tale of a Staten Island woman making waves in the big city was a major hit and scored six Oscar nods, but how do its sexual politics hold up?When Melanie Griffith won the part of underestimated Staten Island secretary Tess McGill in Working Girl, two facts were true. In her short lifetime, womanhood had transformed. The year she was born, fewer than one in eight married mothers were employed; in 1988, that percentage was well over half. And Griffith ? a twice-married mother herself, who would soon wed Don Johnson (again) ? needed the job. Not any job. This one. Related: Working Girl had power suits and female ambition.

  • Kathryn Hahn and Paul Giamatti were excellent as a sympathetic New York couple struggling to have a baby in Tamara Jenkins?s intensely personal dramaSee the rest of the UK countdownSee the rest of the US countdownThe best culture of 2018After her intriguing, if flawed, sibling drama The Savages in 2007, Tamara Jenkins has returned with another intensely personal film. It is a triumph. She shows an uncanny knack of absorbing and transforming her own experiences into a compelling movie. Private Life is superbly acted and written, giving the audience vivid access to a painful yet funny human drama.Kathryn Hahn, a seasoned comedy-character turn, is an absolute revelation in the demanding role of Rachel, a New York literary author who has critical prestige but not much in the way of sales. Her partner is Richard, a former off-Broadway theatre director who has retired from this business, without much regret, and now makes a living selling his pickles at artisanal markets. This is a role made for Paul Giamatti, and it is a pleasure to see him in a challenging part to be compared with those in the movies that made his name: American Splendor and Sideways.

    The actor who starred in Roeg?s 1973 masterpiece, Don?t Look Now, remembers a visionary director, and cinematographer, who changed his life for ever

    ? Judy Blame remembered by Boy George
    ? Read the Observer?s obituaries of 2018 in full hereI was filming in Florida in the spring of 1972. My agent phoned to tell me a fellow named Nic Roeg wanted to speak with me about filming Daphne du Maurier?s Don?t Look Now. I didn?t know him. Didn?t know the story. So I bought a book of her stories and read it, read the script and then I screened Walkabout and Performance, the film he?d co-directed with Donald Cammell. I liked everything.They gave me his phone number and I called him in London. He answered. There was a lot of background barking. A cacophonous chorus of Jack Russells. He and I talked through it. Seriously. Deliberately. Then I told him that I didn?t think the story?s end was correct, that in my life I?d had a lot of experience with extrasensory perception and I didn?t think it should be used as an instrument of terror, that John, the character he wanted me to play, should not be killed by it, but saved by it. I believed I?d made my point and finished talking. Continue reading...
