Captain Marvel (2019)

They're back on track again. :) Right back on. Venom left me a little disappointed, but I like where they've picked up. The special effects are top notch and flashy, Brie Larson is great as ever, Samuel Jackson is young again, and Stan Lee's in the intro!

That 'thank you' might've been the most emotional moment of the film. Seriously. So emotional.

The story's about an epic fight between alien nations, about personal development, and about the very foundation of S.H.I.E.L.D. In the old days, when it all started, and as a little bonus there's the story of how Nick Fury lost his eye. Among other things.

As usual Marvel manage to mix their trademark wit and comedy with some pretty epic sci-fi space battle sequences, and there's nothing I can complain about with regard to the cast either, I just wish... that one character (was I thinking of Nick here? I don't know. Never leave a draft lying too long) had a bigger role to play in the Marvel Universe. Who knows. Maybe he will.

And maybe Monica's daughter actually did build that ship too. I guess we'll see in the sequels.

It feels like this will all tie in with the rest of the universe in a good way.

Overall I loved this, but that said there are some almost unsuitably Star Wars-like chases in the midst, and one particular flight scene (the first encounter with that alien race) where the Transformer effects were way out of style. Small things like that.

Actually that's an annoyingly huge thing considering the beginning of the movie had me impressed not just with the visuals but the sound design too. But maybe they rushed some bits of this after all. Maybe they do have their hands full with this whole character-building universe expansion they're doing right now before the Endgame. Maybe.

I still love it though. Big fan of Brie too, if I didn't mention that. I'm both dreading and looking forward to where she'll lead the battle in the great finale that now looms. Soon. The time is soon.

Marvel's Wonder Woman: way cooler.

 rated 4.5/5: almost awesome
