  • Could be. If I’m thinking correctly, this is the only show that had not started filming anything before all the cuts started coming, so the show runners would’ve had proper notice to write a conclusive ending to the series instead of leaving things on a cliffhanger ending like the other shows did.

    • So... my kid just got back from seeing a pre-screen of Captain Marvel, yeah? She absolutely raved about it. (I had actually read a review, and the author gave it a C-... when I mentioned that to the kid, she said “That person is stupid and doesn’t know what he’s talking about. Granted, the kid is only 16, and I think she has a crush on Brie Larson...) Can’t wait to see it in the next couple of weeks, though.

          • I wouldn’t say it’s a hard pass but it’s a pass for me. Not one I’d actively go see again. Nor probably ever see again for that matter. I saw it for the fact the Mrs wanted to see it when I easily could have not bothered with it because I knew it would give more questions than answers and the questions you had weren’t going to be answered without it being far fetched and leaving you with more questions at the end of the day. Low and behold it’s what you got and I can’t say I was surprised.

            • Hardest of passes for me.

              But I don't watch any of these movies, so it won't matter.

              I do hope one day, when deeply bored, I can dive deep into them. That's how I like to live. Miss 5-10 years of what everyone else is sharing, but then have the best damn week/month imaginable when the time is just right.

              • The familiar Marvel formula is really on show with Captain Marvel - in many ways, it watches like a Phase I film and, honestly, probably would have been better placed there chronologically too. It's because of its nature as a prequel in a franchise of 20+ movies, 10+ years of storytelling now on the verge of hitting its climax that it's difficult as an adult move-goer to shake off the feeling it only exists to set up Captain Marvel herself as something of a plot device for Avengers: Endgame. There's a strange sense of it being retrofitted into continuity, or at the very least uncharacteristically (for the MCU) rushed into the universe ready in time for the big payoff that now looms.

                It's solidly entertaining, like all Marvel movies are, but it by no means knocked my socks off. Standard MCU is standard MCU, so I imagine most people's enjoyment of it will hinge heavily on how into the MCU they are!

                • And weirdly there are some continuity errors...not consistent with the MCU, but there are some nice call backs.

                  The Stan Lee cameo is a cameo of a cameo. Well played.

                  • My main reason for going to see it was for an Endgame post-credits set up. The movie itself was OK. The de-aging of Fury was flawless.

                    • No spoilers here, but Marvel usually does a really good job on their continuity, but there were some that I could NOT get past about Captain Marvel.

                      1. In the first MCU movie, Iron Man, there was a small running joke:
                      Agent Phil Coulson: Strategic Homeland Intervention, Enforcement and Logistics Division.
                      Tony Stark: Whew! God, you really need a new name for that.
                      Agent Phil Coulson: Yeah, I hear that a lot.
                      Now why is this important? Well because at Tony's press conference at the end of the movie, Coulson refers to the organization as S.H.I.E.L.D. for the first time. And in CM, Fury only refers to S.H.I.E.L.D. as S.H.I.E.L.D. It doesn't make sense that S.H.I.E.L.D. wouldn't call itself S.H.I.E.L.D. until 13 years later.

                      2. In Avengers, Fury explain the Phase 2 weapons away like this:
                      Bruce Banner: I'd like to know why SHIELD is using the Tesseract to build weapons of mass destruction.
                      Nick Fury: Because of him!
                      [points at Thor]
                      Thor: Me?
                      Nick Fury: Last year, Earth had a visit from another planet that had a grudge match that leveled a small town. We learned that only are we not alone, but we are hopelessly, hilariously outgunned.
                      Thor: My people want nothing but peace with your planet!
                      Nick Fury: But you're not the only ones out there, are you? And you're not the only threat. The world is filling up with people that can't be matched, that can't be controlled!
                      Again, why is this important? Because it clearly states that S.H.I.E.L.D. only started using the tesseract to make weapons as a response to Thor and Loki and the Destroyer, but Fury KNEW about aliens, and beings from other planets for YEARS, and that they out technologied us back in the 90s. AND with S.H.I.E.L.D. having the tesseract for all that time, why wouldn't they start to make weapons back then? Also, why wouldn't they already know about aliens?

                      I know, I'm nitpicking, but that is what we do. Also, it kind of makes plot holes in the MCU, that they usually are really good at avoiding.

                      • I am caught up with all the political stuff that Brie spouted, on top of the very generic trailer I will give this a very solid hard pass. Even the “positive” reviews seem to complain about Brie’s wooden acting, and also I have no reason to care about this Super hero in the grand scheme of Inifinity War.

                        • I am very entertained by the boycott by many hurt men over Brie Larson’s comments. I’m talking about the Facebook comments and trolling of ratings sites, and no comments in this thread.

                          Unfortunately for those sensitive men, the boycott had zero impact on box office: https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/he...obally-1193585

                          • Oh yeah, cinema was rammed when I saw it, in one of many 2d screenings early Sunday evening (so not exactly peak time).

                            "The worst moron is the one too stupid to realise they're a moron."

                            • It's a Marvel movie that leads directly into Endgame, there is no way that this would not have been super successful monetarily.

                              Patrons like me and many, many others are not complaining about Brie's politics or acting, but about the lack of "big feel" to the movie. The movie served its purpose and was a good origin story, but it was just Meh. It ranks up there with Thor, Thor 2, and Iron Man 2 and 3. All movies that were ok, not great, but did their jobs.

                              The movie lacked something, I cannot truly put my finger on what, it just didn't stack up with the rest of the MCU.


                              I know, as fan, we all know what will happen. Thanos gets beat, and the Snap gets undone. BUT prior to Captain marvel, there is a trailer for Spiderman Far From Home, which obviously has Spidey and also has Fury in it. BUT why have the trailer prior to Endgame? Yes we all know what will happen, but at least keep up the kayfabe.

                              • Sony released the trailer. Marvel did not want them to but it’s Sony’s property. I agree Sony should have waited.

                                I loved the Stan Lee page flip btw.
