I wasn't keen on the last Spidey movie. I thought the Insomniac game told a much better story with stronger characters also. Maybe a little more by the numbers than the MCU one tho

 

I sort of liked the last Avengers film but this one looks like it will be one of those constant cutting globe-hopping hurriedly paced adventures.

Shouldn't be that rushed if the rumours of a three hour film turn out to be true.😂

I was going to post about it saying it's the thing that I didn't like about this reboot. Parker's friends aren't what they've been, MJ doesn't look like MJ, Flash is a midget nerd of colour rather than all-american jock arsehole

 

Then I thought, I don't really care, it was a decent film with or without that

He calls him a loser in the international trailer... No dickwad for us.

I'll see it because it's free with my membership and I am interested in what they do with Mar-Vell (Jude Law). Also curious if they can redeem the piss-poor prior handling of the Kree. I have no interest in Ms Marvel, whatever her costume. Her only noteworthy role is still giving Rogue a better powerset...

Just seen Captain Marvel.

I really enjoyed it. It isn't the best MCU film, but it's fun. Brie Larson is excellent, and it was nice seeing Samuel L Jackson having a bigger role in an MCU film again. As a film it's a bit by the numbers. The plot is good enough, it clips along at a good pace but pretty forgettable, the characters make it though. I don't think anyone gives a bad performance. I hope it breaks out the same way Wonder Woman and Black Panther did, as it is probably a better film than both of those.

I agree with pretty much everything you said apart from Brie Larson, I thought she was just fine. 

 

Ben Mendelssohn though, amazing performance.

Ben Mendelsholm was fucking phenomenal in Bloodline.

 

I’m seeing it on Tuesday with the old man.

Wasn’t expecting much but it really surprised me. 

 

The story was fun with a couple of nice twists. The Skrulls were fantastic, and Mendelssohn absolutely stole the show as Talos. Seeing a bright eyed Nick Fury was fun, but one of the things that happens to him was unnecessary and really stupid. Like if there was a Top Ten Dumbest Things That Happened in a Marvel Movie list this would have a top spot.

 

90’s setting was a lot of fun, and the soundtrack especially gets a high score from me. Lots of nostalgia for the ears.

 

Lots of Easter eggs and important links to the other movies that mostly work really well, but a couple are a bit on the nose.

 

Its not the best MCU movie, but it’s one of the good ones for sure.

Yeah a lot of people on the MCU Reddit are pretty Luke warm about her as well. I thought she seemed to be having fun with it. She's a great actress so I can see other films getting more out of her.

It wasn't a bad performance, it just didn't set me on fire. She was't endearing like Chris Evans as Captain America in his fish-out-of-water story, and she wasn't charismatic like Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman in hers. When she was being cheeky though she was great so I hope we get to see her being more like that in other movies.

 

And I hope we get to see Rogue nerf the fuck out of her when the X-Men join the MCU because she's too powerful to be interesting now.

Spoilers about Captain Marvel's powers and the end of the movie, and Endgame speculation.

Spoiler

I don't think they will, but I hope she isn't just a Deus ex machina in Endgame as a super weapon the defeat Thanos. At the end of this movie she's just got her full powers and is already destroying an armada of space craft, then she's had another 25 years to work on those skills. Also, would she not be aware of Thanos and he aware of her? He's been in the planet fucking business for at least 20+ years (judging from young Gamora) and he would probably know about Captain Marvel via Ronan? Probably over thinking it to be honest.

Ideally: Endgame sees Stark's vision as a reality, with Thanos standing over all of them. Dr. Strange appears out of the blue with the "help" he foresaw he would need. Cue remix of the TAS theme song and the X-Men (all recast, of course) emerge from a portal and promptly kick Thanos' ass. Then together with Jean Grey or Legion, Dr Strange uses the Gauntlet to remake reality. Phase out the Avengers, phase in the Mutants and a Spider-Man that a fanboy friend of mine doesn't disdainfully refer to as "Iron-Man's groupie".

Captain Marvel smashed it at the box office. Guess that Black Widow movie is a shoe in now
