Captain Marvel was good, not great.

Deserves its 79 Rotten Tomatoes score.

Felt like it dragged in places, loved the action scenes (especially as the movie advanced) but it wasn't one where you didn't ever look down at your watch waiting for something interesting to happen.

Some sharp humor from the Skrulls...loved seeing the backstory of Fury and Coulson, but not enough direct connections to the upcoming Avengers film for most fan-boys (have to stay for the end credits I guess, they kick you out of the theatre in China cleaning for the subsequent show.)

Not huge fans of Benning and Jude Law being in this film...loved the 90's music references, particularly Garbage, No Doubt, Hole and Nirvana.

Why didn't you like Benning and Law? You mean those characters or them as the actors. Jude Law is easy to hate for me so he fit for me.

Man, kicking you out before credit scenes of Marvel movie? That really is a communist country.

Guess just personal preference.  Same reason didn’t like Amber Heard and Patrick Wilson In Aquaman.  To each his own...

Two? I assume there is one in the new X-men, possibly New Mutants.

Lol no, neither of those.  Avengers Endgame and Spider-Man Far From home

Why is that an lol? He appears in The Fantastic Four and X-Men movies and he usually shoots all his cameos for whatever movies are filming around the same time. Not really crazy to think he'd appear in Dark Phoenix.

Also, it's funny how he was actually playing himself in this last movie reading the script for his cameo in Mall Rats.

I think Dark Phoenix and New Mutants are supposed to be some of the worst of  the X-men films, the early word from Dark Phoenix is not good and New Mutants has been buried for almost two years now.   Pretty sure  his appearances in X Men movies is spotty at best.  Don't think he has appeared in all of them like he has the MCU movies.  Glancing at his IMDb it seems like he hasn't don't Days of Future Past, First Class, I don't see anything for Dark Phoenix either but I'm sure that could change

im not a huge fan of what happened to the X Men movies after x2

Is new mutants even going to be released still?

I'm not even sure. I know the release of Dark Phoenix was iffy for a while.

I think New Mutants will end up being a Netflix/Hulu dump at some point

Disney rehires James Gunn to direct Guardians of the Galaxy 3, which will probably be pushed to 2021 because of Suicide Squad 2

Wow, that’s awesome!  Guardians of the Galaxy is easily the best Marvel series IMO.

Captain Marvel - 3.5 to 4 out of 5.

I enjoyed it for a movie, but it was certainly not much of a script or the way the characters were treated.

My biggest gripe was

the empathy toward the Skrulls. Those guys are some of the worst villains in Marvel Comics history.

I really enjoyed Spider-Man: Into the SpiderVerse.

 

My ten year old daughter was able to watch it because it was PG - which was a nice change from the PG-13 films.

Not to be a dick, but do you not let your 10 year old daughter watch PG-13 films?

I have an 11 year old daughter and it all depends on the movie.   Movies like Dark Knight, Taken, Insidious, Sucker Punch, and Drag Me to Hell are all rated PG-13.     Do you think those are appropriate movies for a 6th grader?

Those probably not. But other Marvel movies I would let her watch.

Emotionally and maturity-wise. She is not ready at the moment for a PG-13 movie.

 

She hid behind a chair when she was seven during How To Train Your Dragon.

Wow, didn’t realize Drag Me to Hell was PG-13.  I can understand a few of those, but the Marvel movies are super take regardless of their ratings.

I believe Marvel just DDOS'd every movie theater, but tickets are now on sale.

Took me more than 20 minutes while having breakfast, some people on fandango showing wait times of an hour.
