Captain Marvel

                    

The very first Marvel Cinematic Universe movie to hit the big screen. With the center of the universe being a woman superhero by the name of Captain Marvel. This film is set around the midish 1990’s. crazy thing is the movie gives a feel as if it were really filmed around that time, not sure if that’s a compliment or not. The space intro thing felt too lengthy and dull. And the major action arrangements had a retro feeling to them which makes them a bit unfathomable but yet entertaining, that seems to be the best way to describe it. Ryan and Anna are both co-directors of the movie, They both are well known for their involvement in the indie films world.

Captain Marvel also is known as Carol Danvers is played by Brie Larson, in my opinion, I don’t think they could’ve picked a better actress to fit the shoes of Captain Marvel. Her life to her and to the viewers of the film is simply a blur, as the audience is trying to figure out who she is, Danver is trying her best to remember. Carol often feels like shes captured in numerous worlds where she feels like her belonged card is at a low. On Hala, which is a Kree planet where Carol trains as a warrior and also lives. She keeps being told to not let those negative feelings discourage or get to her. The individual giving her this positive gesture is her mentor Yon-Rogg played by Jude Law, His performance in Sherlock Homes was incredible. Back to Carol, she gets taken as a prisoner during a battle with the shape shifting enemy they call Skrulls. The Skrull army is driven by leader Talos played by Ben Mendelsohn. She figures out a way to escape Talos and the Skrulls and end up on another planet, yep your very own that starts with an E.

She’s somewhere in one of the best cities in the world, Los Angeles. Around this part is when the movie takes us to the old school era, the filmmakers use the slightest details to try and make the audience feel the era it’s trying to imitate. Captain Marvel adapts pretty well, you remember those flannel button-down things the female wore around their waist in high school and college back in that time. Guess who’s doing it, yup Carol herself.
a good scene planted by the filmmaker to get a quick laugh and giggle from the audience. Carol starts feeling like a female version of the “Flyboys” as starts to connect the dots of her history of being a test pilot for the Force.

definitely applause. some of the greatest highlights in the film are When Carol recognizes her strength and courage as she clinches on to memories of the past. Supreme Intelligence played by the incredible Annette Bening, she is Carol’s Mentor, A mystic character in Captian Marvel’s past life, who was also a pilot who didn’t get an equal opportunity because of the fact that she was a young mother, but most of all because she was a woman. But the connection that Carol has with Nick Fury played by Samuel L Jackson is undeniable. they are on a mission to find this cube from space that glows and keep it away from the evil hands that’s on the same mission.
