CATFA 089: Hydra’s Vintner

In this minute of Joe Johnston’s 2011 film ‘Captain America: The First Avenger,’ Zola tells Phillips that Schmidt wields the power of the gods and wants to rule. Phillips says it’s crazy, to which Zola says that doesn’t matter because he can do it. Red Skull, meanwhile, talks to his Hydra pilots at the Valkyrie.

Minute Eighty-Nine: From Schmidt’s Beliefs to Schmidt’s Speech

Joining us on the show, we have Lorraine Dahm.

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

The interrogation continues, and Phillips lays out his plans to Zola. Phillips doesn’t seem to take much stock in Zola’s descriptions of Schmidt. Should he be more concerned? It’s really that sense of a mindset where you just can’t imagine that type of crazy actually fulfilling their plans. What’s great about this minute is the way Toby Jones plays it, really convincing Phillips that Schmidt can do what he says he can do and he should be concerned.

We then get to see the Valkyrie finally and have a chat about it. Do we really buy it’s as big as they say though? Five hundred forty feet wingspan? We talk about its origins and compare it to other planes. We also talk about the fact that Red Skull has a table set up with a red wine bottle, a glass of white, and no other glasses for anyone else. Kind of an odd toast?

We’re finally seeing the Valkyrie which must mean we’re close to the end. Tune in!
