Yup. Didn't like that part either. Felt pretty cliche.

Overall, CM was okay. Thought it lacked a proper villain and I didn't like what they did with the Skrulls. I also couldn't get past Ben Mendelsohn's (Talos) accent and casual speech.

After the Franchise wars of 2148, now all movies are comic book movies.

Yes I liked the movie, and thought this song choice was too on the nose.

Captain Marvel is so super powered. Seems like she could 1v1 Thanos. I can't really imagine how they add her to the team to fight Thanos without the infinity gauntlet. Seems OP.

I'm generally less interested in the Superman type heroes because their nigh invulnerability makes them more alien than mortal weirdo characters like Nightcrawler.

My guess is they go back in time before the snap and Carol Danvers gets to take on Thanos with the infinity gauntlet.

It's like we've returned to the old Hollywood studio system except Howard Hawks is now contractually obligated to have Bogart, Bacall, and Ridgely hold a climactic 20 minute battle over the skies of Los Angeles to decide the fate of humankind in every picture.

Politics aside, this movie sucked. Juvenile script, exquisitely bland characters, cringey soundtrack, lackluster casting, no emotional payoff, and more importantly: NO FUN. Samuel L. Jackson was the only one having any. Handing the reigns over to indie hipster writers doesn't always pay off.

I entered this movie expecting the worst, but I actually felt this was one of the better MCU movies by the end. It was definitely better than pretty much every MCU movie but GOTG2, both Avengers and Thor: Raganrok.

I liked it. Brie filled the role better than I expected. I think she accomplished her mission of establishing CM as a force to be reckoned with leading into Endgame.

Went last night and loved it. And guess who was in front of me at concession stand before the movie . . .

The Finz himself!

I think about 90% of Marvel movies fall into the same category of "Eh" with a few being terrible and a few being really good. I'd say Captain Marvel is firmly in the "eh."

Solid movie. Very predictable but had entertaining moments mostly carried by Samuel L Jackson. Brie was ok not the best choice but she was satisfactory. I really hope they don’t have CM be the one to defeat Thanos. Feige said she will be the strongest Hero so far which to me is kinda lame especially with Thor+Storm breaker

Thor already had his shot to take down Thanos.

He should have gone for the head.

I have a hard time taking this seriously when the Ang Lee Hulk movie and Thor: The Dark World exist.
