Minute 105: From Red Monologuing to Blue Beaming

Joining us today, we have Ryanne Bennett, Podcast Host and Content Creator, Audio Engineer, Digital Journalist from the Black Girl Nerds Podcast.

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

Cap and Skull get to the point in their fight where Skull starts essentially monologuing to him. How does it play? And what do we think of the changes that came from the script to the screen? There certainly are some bad lines in the script, but even as-is, Steve doesn’t have any great retorts to Red Skull and that’s a bit disappointing. We do get to talk about Red Skull starting to dissolve though, and that’s exciting. We discuss the opening of the heavens and how there’s a lot of similarity to Raiders of the Lost Ark.

It’s a big minute. Tune in!
