#the only thing that keeps jim running so fast is the idea that the man behinds him wants nothing better to strangle him #and the thing that keeps bones running is the thought that he really really wants to strangle the guy two feet in front of him #this is how they’ve learned to escape day-to-day threats to their life (vulcany)
Can we talk about how Cap and Bucky have opposite masks?
Cap has mouth and eyes exposed, forehead covered. Bucky has mouth covered and eyes painted black, his forehead exposed.
What a lovely symmetry.
But the symbolism too. Cap’s is a helmet, protection, to keep him safe from physical harm. Bucky’s is a muzzle to keep him silent and anonymous and on a leash.
So can we talk about the Winter Soldier’s leitmotif on the Captain America 2 soundtrack? Because it’s nothing short of brilliance.
It begins with a slow build— like an air raid siren— that climbs into an almost human wail before spilling into something similar to radio static. All similar war-time alerts that are heralds of one warning: He’s coming.
The warnings are abruptly ended by mechanic, industrial clanging noises— staccato and heavy— that tell us that the Winter Soldier has arrived and has come for blood. Continual small “screaming” inflections over the music emphasize the terroristic nature of the track. And then— finally— the music track cuts in as a pairing to the heavy industrial noises that had bombarded us for almost four minutes prior.
The fact that the track is almost entirely industrial— no “natural” sounding instruments occur until the last minute or so— is beautifully appropriate. Winter Soldier’s theme is as manufactured and as mechanical as he is— cold, choppy, and wholly a product of artificial engineering.
And it’s terrifyingly perfect.

I sent her this gif on accident.
Why am I laughing so hard?
Did she reply?
