Re: Captain Marvel

Just saw this. 6/10. Nothing spectacular, but good.

Spoiler for spoilers and my view of the film:

I found the film super confusing, too much stimulation up till they listen to the recording. I really would have liked morr elaboration on her past, what she had to overcome. The film seemed to take for granted that women were held back.

Marvel had little to no emotion the whole film. I felt her dilagoue was surprisingly minimal considering it was her film. Again, more flashbacks and explaining that she was told she couldn't do x, y, and z. The audience is left to assume it's because she's a woman, but in 2019 that's not the case. Kids don't walk into a female lead movie thinking it's a big deal.

At the end I had wished the film have more female empowerment, more direct "she was told she couldn't do x,y, z because she's a woman!". I thought it was senile to assume the audience would assume that. Aside from the "cockpit" jock, there was no machoism in the movie. Even the biker who hit on her was nice.

She came off like an entitled asshole with super powers. I think the lost memory storyline didn't help there either. She just had the powers, with no memory of how she got them, why, what she had to overcome - she had no reason to be sympathetic, so the audience didn't either.

Again, I left feeling the film didn't suck up to women enough.

Fury and Marvel had terrible chemistry. She was overpowered with little challenge (all the challenge she faced was in 5 second flashback clips). I was more interested in the other pilot because you got to know her, her family, the lose of her best friend.

Kree, skulls, core power v tesseract....all really over my head, and I've seen all the marvel films. It felt like a rejected star trek episode. Or, an extra they didn't have tv time for.


Still, it filled the boxes and was enough to last me till The Protectors 4.

Re: Captain Marvel

Marvel’s First Flop

I’ve seen it twice and will definitely pick up the Blu-ray. Only wished for more Star Force because I actually loved their chemistry I’m the beginning. Can’t wait to see Carol in Endgame.

I know what it's like to lose. To feel so desperately that you're right, yet to fail nonetheless. Itís frightening. Turns the legs to jelly. I ask you, to what end? Dread it. Run from it. Destiny arrives all the same.

Re: Captain Marvel


When a man's heart is full of deceit,
it burns up, dies, and a dark shadow falls over his soul.

From the ashes of a once great man has risen a curse,
a wrong that must be righted.

I actually didn't mind the film but she was awful in EG. Just find it funny how it is STILL showing in cinemas to get the final figure up (altho no idea who would still be watching it)

Black Panther got a boost due to Infinity War so they're just doing the same here.

I'm glad that I am not the only one who feels this way. I really did not mind CM at all. Even though I was not super crazy about Larson, she was adequate enough and I found the film enjoyable. Then came Endgame and just absolutely nothing about the actress and character worked in that film.

why was she awful in EG? She did a fine job. She had more personality in EG than she did in CM.
