Minute NInety: From The Hydra Metaphor to Steve Trying to Drown His Sorrows

Joining us on the show, we have Lorraine Dahm.

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

Schmidt and his Hydra metaphors. They’re pretty nice even if they are a bit broad. The pilots, however, look like they’re in gimp leathers. We get a great reveal of the entire Hydra platoon and it’s frightening, particularly when they salute. Red Skull has a great smacking of his lips, and then we’re back in London in the bombed-out ruins of the Whip & Fiddle. We talk about the mirroring of Skull and his toast with Steve and his drinking. We also chat about Steve and Peggy.

Plus, there’s Steve’s metabolism to debate about. Tune in!
