Your Chance to Smoke a Bowl and Appreciate the Original Captain America

The original 1990 Captain America film was a trainwreck — by all accounts, the investors pulled out a short time into filming, and the budget had to be slashed mercilessly — but it's also a supreme achievement of campy superhero action. » 9/28/11 5:30pm 9/28/11 5:30pm

Captain America Teaches English Lessons — With His Fists

The Red Skull sounds like Tweety Bird with a fakey Italian accent in this awesome clip from the original live-action Captain America movie.
