Yeah Captain Marvel was ok at best!

I saw the movie Friday night and I enjoyed it for what it was. I was really not expecting it to be great. It was your typical origin story right along side movies like Captain America or Dr Strange, not bad but not great had it moments that made you laugh. I would not say she was a Mary Sue on the level of Rey from star wars at all. From what I recall she could not beat Yon-Rogg hand to hand during training, her first mission she gets captured, when she fought the skrull on the train it was not like she had an easy go of it, even the piloting scene she got shot down if they were Rey she would have shot down the alien starship. As for the emotionless stuff I thought that was just the character, her only memories were training as a Kree warrior and being told to suppress emotion none of the other Kree were emotional either. I was kinda disappointed that Coulson was not in film more though. I thought that Samuel L and Brie played off of eachother pretty well.

I did enjoy all the 90's references in the movies took me back to when I was a teen, Radio Shack, payphones, altavista, dial up connection, slow ass loading CD Roms, giant cell phones, having to read a big ass paper map . Stan Lee reading the script and practicing his lines in Mall Rats on the tain was one of the best moments in the film.

Well, I saw Captain Marvel today and I thought it was just "okay". There was nothing really remarkable about the movie, y'know, to make it really stand out. I do like the Skrulls in the MCU, but I'm uncertain about how they will be depicted going forward. This movie made the Skrulls out to be the victims and they are anything but that in the comics. I guess we won't be getting an expanded (we saw elements of it here) version of "Secret Invasion".

Here's what I liked and didn't like about the movie:

Didn't like their depiction of the Mar-Vell character---don't know why they went that route.

I did like the team/chemistry of Danvers & Fury. That was a saving grace of the movie. This movie might've really sucked without Fury.

Coulson was barely in the movie---I thought he would be more involved, but he basically made a cameo appearance. Waste of Clark Gregg's talents.

The biggest problem with the movie was Carol Danvers/Brie Larson herself. While she did have some quips and snarky comments here and there, she was not the most charismatic MCU hero that I've ever seen. It might have to do with her conditioning/brainwashing by the Kree, but whatever the case, she came across as somewhat bland to me. I think she will be better in Avengers: Endgame, but we'll see.

I loved the Stan Lee tribute at the beginning---very fitting.

This whole idea of her being "the most powerful hero in the MCU" might be a bit overblown. She gave no indication of that level of power until the end, where she was apparently tapping into her Binary powers. I still think Thor with the Odinforce should be more powerful than her, but Disney/Marvel likes these powerful females, so who knows. That said, I don't think she was a "Mary Sue" until the end---she was pretty much unstoppable by then.

To be honest, I didn't think the music was that big of a deal. Then again, I wasn't a huge fan of 90's music---my old music tastes run mostly from the 60's to 80's.

So, to sum it up, Captain Marvel had some fun moments (check out Goose the cat!), some nice action sequences, and a nice teaming of Fury/Danvers, but for an MCU movie I found it wanting. Brie Larson is a fine actress (Oscar winner, in fact), but her performance lacked the charisma to make her character more compelling. Hopefully, it's just a product of the conditioning by the Kree and not her actual acting performance. It should be interesting to see how she is depicted in Endgame, where she won't be the focal point.

On a scale of 1-5 stars, I give this film 2 stars---just an average movie, IMO, not great, but not terrible---strictly middle of the pack as far as MCU films go.

This film rates lower than the last few superhero movies that I've seen (that includes Aquaman, Antman & The Wasp, Avengers: Infinity War, Black Panther & Deadpool 2).

In the comics she is ridiculously powerfull. Im not that into comics but have some friends that doesn't shut up about it. Thing is most of the public won't get that angle- and the movie failed to convey that proper. She shows power no doubt but come on, we have been years following the likes of a freaking god that just recently survived a start to the chest- while another newcomer had two movies where he first stopped and reversed time saving the world against something that on a macro level is bigger then the pink guy or that galactus, all by himself, and that most likely have saved the infinity stones crysis (that scene where the doctor looks into the future and sees one way to win- most likely letting then loose, spiderman die in starks arm and all that being the only way to achieve victory). Where it matters, the cinematic universe, shes not seeling it.

This might be the first time in awhile where the comics and movies aren't aligned because the movies are following the comics. Most people aren't that much into the comics.

I liked her chemistry with Fury, and i don't dislike her as a actress- the script and marvel herself leads to that 'stoic' thing,wich btw probably isn't a type of personality she handles well. She is a good actress but i have yet to see if she has a good range- id bet not. After all there are better stoic characters in other movies.

But the movie fail in other things too. The pace for one. Even the fx and coreography... the movie isn't terrible by any degree, but such a big 'meh' that its way below the MCU standard, even compared with the lesser movies in the cinematic universe.

Wouldn't be as bad if they weren't hyping it as the next big thing (besides end game) and championing it as this and that.

Ps: and that cat fury thing... nope. Terrible. And heck i like cats, still stupid.

Captain Marvel was a 2 hour infomercial for Avengers End Game much like Captain America the first Avenger was for the first Avengers movie.

If might help if you look at it the way I do, and think of the MCU as a big-budget TV-series, and every movie is just another episode. And just like TV shows, some episodes are weaker than others but when you take in the series as a whole it's great.

Nah, I'm good, what makes you think I have an issue with infomercials? Some are actually pretty entertaining and informal wish I still had my George Foreman grill from back in the day.
