How Family-Friendly Is Captain Marvel?

  • 7 Period Movies Marvel Should Make In The Future

I know that, not specifically but in general, a celebration is what Stan always wanted as opposed to any sort of mournful event.

I worship Uhura. I identify with Dana Scully. Among the 500 negative reviews are some users who appear to have seen Captain Marvel, and many who obviously haven't. Her story somehow involves a cat.

Captain Marvel is flying higher, further, faster at the box office.

That it does it all this with aplomb is another win for Marvel Studios mastermind Kevin Feige's practice of hiring innovative indie film directors - like "Thor: Ragnarok's" Taika Waititi, "Black Panther's" Ryan Coogler, "Guardians of the Galaxy's" James Gunn - to steer these big-budget action vehicles. I've enjoyed the MCU, but I'm tired of it being such a dude-fest.

"Captain Marvel" has already taken in $78 million in its first two days from 25 worldwide markets, including $34 million on its opening day in China. Despite what most of the promotional materials for the film have indicated, it is a far more cosmic movie that general theatergoing audiences may expect. My mother is super excited. "I had a ball doing this, literally", the actress told HollywoodLife in an exclusive interview at a Cinema Society screening of the film in NYC. My sister is in the same ignorance-boat as me.

"I remember loving the Wonder Woman show with Lynda Carter, I loved The Wonder Twins cartoon, and I remember that what we had was good, but it's so nice to have what we have now", she says.

It's not necessarily their best origin film to date, but it was one of the most enjoyable rides I had with an MCU movie.

How powerful is Captain Marvel?

Like its title character, ‘Captain Marvel’ gets the job done
The title character is a metaphor for every woman - heck, every person - who is trying to figure out how to harness her own power. She, however, hoped that there comes a time when a female director for a superhero film becomes a norm rather than an exception.

Captain Marvel is cool as hell.

Carol Danvers is a tough, stubborn, smart, fiercely loyal, independent, Star Wars-loving hotshot pilot.

The latest Marvel installment starring Brie Larson is on track to bring in anywhere from $120 to $150 million dollars this opening weekend. Captain Marvel has a practical supersuit. Not only can she fly and shoot fireballs from her hands, but she also absorbs energy from others.

"It's good that people can imagine girls and women taking over and basically being in charge, which is a new thing in the movies", she said. I'd love to see her career in flight and more of her big-hearted daughter Monica.

Unfortunately, even when Vers's power reaches cosmic levels, she is still being undermined - not by the patriarchy but by a foggy, uncertain script. The helmet is purely a fashion choice, she can breathe up there just fine without it. After the movie was over, I realized there was no romantic subplot shoehorned into the story, and I was glad. There she meets Nick Fury in the form of Samuel L Jackson, convincingly digitally altered to look 25 years younger. Heck yeah: more kickies, less smoochies. As cats are known to do, Goose spits up the Tesseract like a hairball.

If only someone had given Nick Fury the same kind of warning Santa Claus gave Ralphie Parker. Or even just two hours of Jackson sitting there with Goose in his lap.

For those wanting to go into Captain Marvel completely blind (that isn't a vision-related pun, here, gang - we're genuinely looking out for you in the spoiler department), turn your attention away now.
