    I'm excited for Captain Marvel this week, but I'm more excited for Endgame next month. Finally closing that open end.

    To me it seems like they didn't think this whole Ms Marvel thing through very well if she was going to be thrown into the Avengers finale. That movie should have at least been released last fall to give the character some build up instead of a 2 month wait between releases. They also should have thrown some hints of her in other movies over the past 2 years as I'm willing to bet a lot of non comic book geeks probably never heard of her before. I'll still check out the movie after it's been in the theaters a few weeks though since it will tie into the Avengers Endgame.

    I was able to see it early last night, and I'll say the following (no spoilers)

    The Good
    It's Marvel Studios. Even the worst MCU movies are better than mediocre.
    There are 90's songs on the soundtrack, and I loved that.
    Brie Larson is perfect as Carol, both as a superhero and a regular woman from Earth.
    The de-aging tech used for Samuel L. Jackson and Clark Gregg is solid and never off-putting.
    The cat is cute.
    The movie is paced properly and there aren't too many characters.

    The Bad
    Sort of a symptom of coming before the other films besides The First Avenger, but the stakes for Earth aren't that high.
    The plot is very safe - it's serviceable, but it won't blow you away.
    The movie undermines, rather than empowers, some things in past MCU films.

    The "But"
    The fight scenes are good, but there aren't enough of them.
    The plot is good, but some plot points aren't presented to show the meaning they should have.
    Ben Mendelsohn plays a good Talos, but there isn't enough of him.

    Sounds about standard for a Marvel movie. I doubt I'll see it in theaters but I might check it out when it comes to Netflix/Disney+.

    The comics weren't too bad but that trailer just killed the whole idea. Might have worked if they used voices from both of the original animated tv series and the artist style from the 90's instead of that crap in the trailer.

    I got to see an early showing of Us last night and I'm glad I didn't have to sleep alone after.
