CAPTAIN MARVEL Is Fun and Fresh, But Could Fly Higher

It was the peak of the Sundance era and Ed Burns made his debut at the 1995 fest with this indie classic which he wrote directed and starred

There's a solid amount of comedy that we're used to seeing in Marvel films by now. Brie Larson is the boss of space.

Of the reviews, 24 are considered positive, 14 are mixed and 1 is negative, so we see the 66 is a lot different than how the 91% score looks at Rotten Tomatoes. Or put it this way: What Black Panther did for black representation in the superhero realm is not done for women in Captain Marvel. The noise of right-wing trolls should not stop anyone from seeing it. In fact, pretty much anyone who enjoys quality comic book cinema would do well to line up on Friday and enjoy Captain Marvel...

It's a bit of a slow buildup to get there, as the newest Marvel superhero origins story kicks off on one of those far-too-familiar planets where the skyscrapers seem to extend into forever, and commuters are zipping about in flying-car type thingees, and nobody ever seems to be having any fun because they're constantly at odds with beings from other planets and other galaxies.

In the Captain Marvel sequence, practically every Stan Lee cameos from the movies of the Marvel Cinematic Universe appear instead of the superheroes and it is an emotional sight. There is a scene late, when Larsen conveys Vers' realization of who she is and the strength she had all along, that is as emotionally powerful as any in a Marvel movie.

At this point, you can't read about a Marvel movie without mention of the Marvel formula.

And yes, there is someone who teaches how to do just that. She already has her powers, she just doesn't know how she got them. She escapes, only to crash land on a backward planet the Kree call C-53, aka Earth. "Happy picture wrap day!" he wrote under a photo of himself wearing a Captain Marvel hat on Instagram, July 8. Amidst all the humor, the buddying up with Fury to help piece the puzzle together, the traveling to Lousiana to learn about her past, Vers journey of discovery is so layered and cleverly revealed.

The film's first announcement came as a huge shocker for fans as majority expected the superhero to be placed by a male. A true moment of empowerment.

As a superheroine, she's never been my favorite, and I find most adaptations of her struggle with allowing her to be an empowered feminist character while also attempting to make men feel comfortable with her.

So, it might be worth lowering your expectations a smidge before going to see Captain Marvel, but for the most part it seems to deliver another fun, escapist Marvel thrill-ride. The chemistry between Brie Larson and co-stars Samuel L. Jackson and Lashana Lynch is electric. Equally lovely is the storyline involving Maria's daughter Monica and Carol. There's also a wonderful marmalade cat, Goose. Yes, Goose the Flerken (Chewie in the comics) steals the show. There are also apparent lapses in logic in the motivations of the Skrulls and Kree. Along with the visual nostalgia, the 90s soundtrack defines the era with entertaining resonance.

What is in the Captain Marvel mid-credits and end-credits scenes?

Almost every aspect of this film is half-baked. Female Empowerment to the Nth degree.

Larson made headlines in early February when she told Marie Claire UK's Keah Brown that she has taken steps to make sure the movie's press junket is not "overwhelmingly white male". Women of all ages.

I was frustrated that there were basically no women in the movie with real roles once they leave Themyscira. It's not until Vers arrives on Earth that things start getting a little more interesting.
