Judging by the box office numbers being generated by "Captain America: The Winter Soldier," it almost seems like the summer movie season is already underway.

Of course, it isn't - and, according to the Gregorian calendar, the first day of summer falls on June 21. But Hollywood doesn't pay much attention to such pesky details. As far as the film studios are concerned, the drive to fill theaters by hyping an endless parade of potential blockbusters marks the start of summer. That procession generally commences in early May ... although it seems to be arriving earlier and earlier each year.

PALM HARBOR - Filmmaker Lucas Omar felt like he had seen it all before. Romantic comedies are a dime a dozen, and the plots don’t change much from one film to the next, he said. Either one guy is torn between two women or a girl is forced to choose between two men.

Action-packed Captain America: The Winter Soldier integrates timely political issues. Superhero cinema continues to evolve as creative filmmakers search for innovative ways to make the transition from comic book to big screen appealing and engaging.

The latest installment from the Marvel Studios bullpen - now quite comfortable beneath the Walt Disney Pictures umbrella - is no exception. "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" is yet another solid chapter in the sprawling Marvel Universe, bursting at the seams with deftly orchestrated action sequences, high-tech gear, noisy explosions and bone-crunching brawls. What sets it apart, however, is its clever criticism of the contemporary military-industrial complex and, in particular, government-sanctioned surveillance of its own citizens.

Welcome to the town of Pico Mundo, home of short-order cook Odd Thomas who boasts a dysfunctional family history, a devoted, affectionate girlfriend and an uncanny ability to see dead people.

RLJ/Image Entertainment will be releasing "Odd Thomas" in theaters on Feb. 28. Locally, the film will play AMC Woodland Square 20, 3128 Tampa Road, Oldsmar.

The paranormal thriller "Odd Thomas," starring Anton Yelchin in the titular role, is based on the 2003 Dean Koontz novel of the same name. American filmmaker Stephen Sommers - responsible for films such as "The Mummy," "The Mummy Returns" and "G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra" - embraced the challenge of bringing the story to the big screen. The result is a splendidly entertaining and entrancing endeavor that blends horror, romance, action and humor. Sommers' adaptation of the material is quirky, stylish and audacious.

SEMINOLE - After retiring from his job as an undercover narcotics detective for the Sheriff’s Office three years ago, Randall Speakman was uncertain what his next step would be.

Then, his mother succumbed to cancer. Not long after that, his brother died from a heart attack.

“I would wake up and feel like I had no purpose,” Speakman said.

But things slowly got better. He bought the London Bus Pub with his friend and business partner, Brad Doran. He also began making horror movies, including last summer’s “House Guest,” with a pair of local filmmaker brothers, Brian and Jake Jalbert, and found he had a knack for playing the bad guy.

Fed up with the pressures and demands of her acting career, the famous Myra Marloe leases a house in New England to write her autobiography. Dealing with her nosy omnipresent neighbors turns out to be more difficult than she imagined so she invents a mad homicidal sister who is kept locked in an upstairs room.
