I’ve Seen That Before: Civil War Edition

If you haven’t yet seen Captain America: Civil War I suggest you stop what you’re doing and go check it out right now.  Yes, that even includes reading this article.  My feelings will not be hurt if you neglect my writings in favor of checking out Civil War.  Let me tell you, it’s THAT good.  Some would even argue the greatest superhero movie of all time. So imagine my surprise, while enjoying yet another amazing battle, this time between Spiderman, Falcon, and Bucky, when I just couldn’t shake the feeling that I had seen that airport before.  Not from earlier in the movie, not even from another movie, but SOMEWHERE. A little research on the shooting locations helped me realize numerous scenes were shot at the Berlin Schonefeld Airport.  This didn’t really have any significance to me, and although I lived in Germany at one time, I had never been to that airport.  Or have I?  I just couldn’t shake the feeling of dejavu.  Just as Spiderman swung between the rafters, I had this feeling that I had spent many hours there as well.  And then it hit me! I had grinded, kick flipped and ollied through those rafters before.  As it turns out the windows and rafters of this particular real life airport inspired a portion of the “Airport” level in Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 3, which apparently has been ingrained into my subconscious. Maybe it’s time to break out this oldie but goodie. Want to hear our complete review of Captain America: Civil War.  Listen to the Geek Versus Week podcast below, and subscribe in your favorite podcast app.
