This is my 50th post on a new slate. WARNING: Spoilers ahead for those who haven’t watch it in the cinemas.
Captain Marvel (Boden and Fleck, 2019) is the first film to be released after the loss of its creator, Stan Lee, last November. Yes, the specialized opening titles of Marvel Studios does make every fan cry or trigger emotion if one can’t shed tears.
Brie Larson plays Carol Danvers and the titular character while Samuel Jackson plays Nick Fury, the future director of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Lee’s cameo, unlike the previous films of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, is placed on the opening action instead of the main action near the end. That Captain Marvel’s smile on the creator reading the Mallrats script (which he was a cameo of that film in 1995, the year of this film’s setting) is a big honor.
The most funny, awesome part — other than Captain Marvel’s fight — is Goose the Cat. His flight in space and swallowing of the Tesseract using tentacle tongues just incite humor. In terms of the soundtrack, it’s apt and the ’90s music, it’s pretty neat.
My verdict: Haters gonna hate, it kicks ass. Sorry for those who review-bombed the film before watching but Brie takes no crap. In the end, anyone can do greater things as Captain Marvel can.
Personally, I should do some film reviews as I looking forward for the next one next month, Avengers: Endgame, to see if Thanos will be defeated.
