Saw it last night with the GF. Her first comment afterwards? “I loved it. It was cool to see a woman be that powerful.” That was her reaction without any prompting from me. So CM is doing something right in that regard.

I also loved it. It was lighter in emotional weight than I expected. But then again…after Infinity War almost everything seems lightweight. Lots of fun and action, but my minor quibble would be the choice of the use of the song ‘Just A Girl’ by No Doubt at the building of the crescendo of the 3rd act. I thought that was a mistake. The bubbly, happy nature of the song took away the ‘OOMPH’ of the moment. Almost everything else in terms of soundtrack was spot on.
Brie Larson played Carol Danvers quite well. Cocky and brash like almost all fighter pilots. But her relationship with Maria Rambeau and little Monica gave her the other side that makes her fully realized. I’m sold on her as the character. Looking forward to more of her…..especially in Endgame.
I loved the bridge building between this and the 1st Avengers movie (and CA:TFA). Lots of questions answered. “It’s All Connected.”
My 1st major quibble was Mar-Vel. I get WHY they did what they did. But as a big fan of Marvel’s first cosmic Captain I really wanted to see him realized on screen.
My 2nd major quibble was the teasing of the appearance Supreme Intelligence. I suspect they are waiting for the sequel to do it…but this installment could have used that extra bit of “WTF?!”
All in all yet another chapter well done. I’d place this on par with Spider-Man Homecoming, GOTG vol. 2, Ant Man and its sequel, Doctor Strange, CA: TFA….but below The Avengers, CA:CW, Thor Ragnarok, BP, GOTG, CA:TWS and my all time favorite movie A:IW.
Thanos better get his shit together. The Captain can bring the heat.
Oh yeah, Happy International Women’s Day!
