    Brie Larson, Samuel L. Jackson and the ever under-the-radar (but always working!) Ben Mendelsohn team up in this better-than-average superhero turn, meant primarily to introduce a lead female role in the Marvel Universe, diversifying the same where there previously was a lack. The story is decent, the point of feminine inclusion well hidden by good writing, and sparkly CGI ably imparts a welcoming glow for ladies watching not previously interested in the whole predictable good guy/bad guy face off usually necessary for the genre. All-in-all a worthy effort. Annette Bening and Lashana Lynch round out the cast nicely.

    Got a headache after watching the movie. Extremely disappointing.

    Marvel delivers its first female centric superhero film with Captain Marvel, a prequel to the Avengers series. After escaping capture by the Skrull, a Kree soldier named Vers gets stranded on Earth where she discovers that the Skrull are searching for something and during her investigation she unearths a past that she never knew about. Brie Larson gives a decent performance, though she's clearly doing an imitation of a Tony Stark-like character (which there are already too many of in the MCU), and the supporting cast is pretty strong; featuring Samuel L. Jackson, Jude Law, and Djimon Hounsou. Unfortunately the script is rather poor, as it desperately tries to avoid telling an origin story while also ham fistedly forces one in at the same time. But the action-scenes and fight sequences are fun and exciting, and there's some lighthearted comedy that works really well (particularly the Stan Lee cameo). Also, the soundtrack is incredibly well-done; using '90s music to set the tone and time period. Despite some flaws, Captain Marvel is yet another solidly entertaining pop-corn film from Marvel.

    Captain Marvel thrived on the MCU franchise formula - but it took a while for me to warm up to the character. This reminded me why Kevin Feige is a genius in bringing all these puzzle pieces together, and why this works as a build up to the concluding chapter - Avengers: Endgame. This is for MCU fans.
