I loved this movie!! It was so good and I’m truly surprised by that.
I understand some of the criticism because I don’t think Carol’s character was flushed out as much as it could have been and the first 20 minutes were slow. I wanted to get to know more about Carol like her family and insecurities. I hope the Directors, Feige, and Brie take the criticism in stride and learn from this so that the sequels will do better at her character.
But I really liked the story. The performances were freaking awesome!!! Brie had amazing chemistry with Sam, Lashana, Ben, the little girl who played Monica and Law. The 90s aesthetics in the movie was everything and I loved the soundtrack. I thought that despite not showing Carol as really relatable that though she was a cosmic hero the movie was still grounded. I liked the action scenes and this movie had great heart. I also thought it was such a pretty movie to look at(Infinity War, Doctor Strange, and the Guardian movies are the most beautiful MCU movies)And I thought Brie gave a really great performance as Carol and because of that I love this movie.
This is my favorite orgin story and very high on my Marvel list. I’m okay with the critics reviewing this harshly. I was hoping it didn’t get a pass because it was the first female led MCU movie. But I hope the Marvel team hear the criticism and take it in stride and fix it for the next movie. I also liked how it felt like a standalone MCU movie, it felt different in all the right places.
Speaking of the sequel I keep hearing people say that they want it in the past again and I hope not. Yes she had like almost two decades in space helping others and you Luke do lots with that material. But Carol’s next story should be set present and since the X-men are coming home I want Rogue to steal her powers and Carol to deal with that. Brie is a good dramatic actress and with the right script and better direction I think the story would be amazing.
Anyways I’m definitely seeing this a few more times before Endgame and that credit scene had me bursting inside. I hope people give this movie a shot and just enjoy it.
