Minute 111: From Peggy Reminiscing to Steve Listening

Joining us, we have Steve Sarmento from Trailer Rewind and the TruStory FM Entertainment Podcast Network.

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

Peggy’s remembering Steve from the picture of puny Steve. Or is she pining for the science? We laugh about that, and ponder the strange music swell that happens which makes Pete think of Jurassic Park. We debate more about how much the American public knew about Steve and the super-soldier program.

Then we get to talk about the nearly 20 seconds of black. But it’s not just black – there are sounds. We chat about the sound design and the implied passage of time.

And we then get to talk about Steve waking up in a hospital room. But why isn’t he in a hospital gown? And why are his boots on?

We clearly have questions about what’s going on in this room. Tune in!
