"Captain America: Civil War"

Well only a few days to see Captain America: Civil War in theaters! This one proves to be very different as we begin to see a more dark tale, and view some serious disagreements between our heroes. Yes as everything else lately it would seem our "knights in shining armor" will take a walk on the dark side just as Anakin did in Star Wars. Nothing is clear cut anymore, and it truly makes it difficult to figure out who to root for when your heroes are fighting against each other.

Music is done by the English composer, Henry Jackman who also composed the music score for "Captain America: Winter Soldier" which was also a great score so this be good! Jackman was also taken under the wing of Hans Zimmer as a mentor, and has created some really great varieties of music scores such as: X-Men: First Class, Wreck-It Ralph, Captain Phillips, Kick-Ass , Big Hero 6 and The Interview. Music must be in his blood as his father, Andrew Jackman worked with and arranged for Chris Squire from the group Yes, his uncle Gregg Jackman was a sound engineer for the group Yes, and his grandfather Bill Jackman played the clarinet part on the The Beatles song, "When I'm Sixty-Four" from Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band. Henry Jackman's next music score will be for the 2nd installment of Jack Reacher: Never Go Back with Tom Cruise also should be good!

This week I will continue to pull for Cap, hopefully he will remain good!?!? Can't Wait to see Captain America: Civil War!
