Well, I might as well do that review now that I've seen it haha. And partially in reply to @Nola_Applequill1's review.
Captain Marvel was not a bad film.
It wasn't perfect either.
Let's be honest, it just wasn't.
But was it a good film? Absolutely.
Is it worthy of the MCU? Without doubt. To infinity and beyond. (Wrong space quote? whatever)
The action was excellent and very exciting. The Skrulls, I think, were portrayed very well in terms of what they look like and how they work. On that note, Ben Mendolhson did not disappoint. Talos was on point and reasonably compelling---enough that I would like to see him again. Though I'm not sure about the chances of that. But the point is that I genuinely felt for his character.
Brie Larson proves once again that she can break stereotypes and portray that one absolute kick-butt woman in film. She's done this before (Mason in Kong: Skull Island), that much, I think she delivered on. Captain Marvel as a film was meant to have heavy feminist tone anyway. And for that, I can't complain. I went in knowing that was what I was going to get. If I had any criticisms, it's that Brie Larson may have tried too hard? And by that, her serious-then-suddenly-playful/teasing/snarky nature seemed random and forced. Little tidbits of dialogue to serve this kind of threw me off once or twice. In Skull Island, Larson is also able to play a very similarly-meant character, but to, I think, a higher degree. Less is more? I guess, is the moral of the story. And Captain Marvel just kind of wanted to bunch it all into the character. That didn't seem natural to me, as I envisioned her more set in personality. But either way, she wasn't my favorite super hero, and this movie doesn't change that.
I also found Fury kind of childish? I suppose that's to be expected, but still. I also wanted to see Coulson a little more. I also did expect to see the Supreme Intelligence in its actual form? So that disappointed me.
The story itself wasn't completely unpredictable. Especially with some scenes. But don't take that the wrong way---I was actually really happy with the story. I thought it was filmed well, and the characters were actually very interesting. The obvious lead-up in terms of easter eggs and how Captain Marvel influenced the creation of the Avengers initiative before she even joined them (Avengers: Endgame yayyy!!); I thought was a little too "easy"? But I don't see how they could've done it any other way. "Where's Fury?!"
All-in-all, not a bad film. In fact, I liked it a lot. Though the plot was somewhat predictable, and the antics nothing new---it was a well-made movie that I would rewatch the next chance I have. It also succeeded in one of its main objectives: I am HYPED for Endgame now. Even more so than I was two seconds ago.
In terms of the feminist element of Captain Marvel, @Nola_Applequill1, I think you're wrong, plain and simple.
But it's okay, I'm not here to argue haha. Aside from the actual fact that Brie Larson actually said that Captain Mavel would be a "big feminist film" (source at bottom of post); I think anyone kind of has to be half-blind to not see the obvious nods to a feminist agenda. Like I said before, it wasn't that bad at all. I mean, we all knew that going in. And are there things they could've done but didn't? Yes. Then again, Captain Marvel could've swooped in in Infinity Wars and stopped Thanos outright to serve the ultimate feminist punch---yet she didn't. Let's keep our eyes on what did happen, shall we haha?
Anyway, I think you're right in the sense that the agenda wasn't so prominent that it made the film unpalatable, but it's ignorant to deny that it didn't affect much of the story. Or even detract from it, as I would think.
Then again, Danvers was arguably the least interesting of all the characters unfortunately haha. But hopefully she'll get another chance at the bat in Endgame.
