Captain Marvel

You know, i thought i'd hate Captain Marvel. The trailers made it look overbloated, i figured maybe mediocre at best. The film takes a while to get going but once she lands on Earth and begins pretty damn good exchanges of dialogue with Nick Fury the film really kicks off. Once the "twist" is revealed the first act doesn't seem as jumbled. The relationships & bonds with the characters are the heart of the film. It is highly flawed, highly flawed. The eye moment of Fury's, the color pallet of her attire, and the mid credit stinger, ugh, how rushed can you get?  Also her being gone for 2 decades is rather odd, but a passable gripe. The action scenes are all well done, the humor actually works, i usually hate Marvel humor, and the soundtrack is awesome.. The Stan Lee tribute, fuck...that was touching, gut wrenching....then came the Mallrats script. Amazing! It served it's purpose of the larger Marvel Universe, but it felt forced, oh well still a well done prequel, better than Episode I II & III. I'd love to see more of this story in the 20 some years that happened in between this and Endgame.
