CATFA 055: Introduce the Grammatical Complaint Horn

In this minute of Joe Johnston’s 2011 film ‘Captain America: The First Avenger,’ Colonel Phillips gives in to Steve’s need to know and tells him he remembers the name Barnes in the letters he’s been signing. Steve asks about a rescue mission for the rest of the troops then, after being dismissed by Phillips, puts his own plan in place.

Minute Fifty-Five: From Phillips Reminding Steve That He Can Spell to Phillips Reprimanding Carter

Joining us on the show today, we have Travis Bow and Robin Burdge!

In the fifty-fifth minute of Joe Johnston’s 2011 film Captain America: The First Avenger

Phillips remembers Bucky’s name but there’s a grammatical issue and we’re here for it. We talk about the relationship between Colonel Phillips and Steve Rogers, and wonder if there’s enough of Phillips to really call him a change character. Why is he being so ridiculously diminutive to Steve? But he does give Steve and idea. And Peggy’s face sure seems to say that the filmmakers’ intentions weren’t to have us read that Peggy came here just to get Steve moving. So confusing.

Grammar talk and more. Tune in!
