Captain Marvel! Extremely average!

What a waste!
What a waste!

So knowing GaG, lot of you guys are going to be in the whole identity politics things. I can only say that is just weird. If it isn't identity politics when there is a male lead, how can it be when a female is a lead?

Anyway, it doesn't matter. Identity politics or no, people shouldn't make movies that suck. And this one while it gets off to a good start, falls flat on its face.

I can say Brie seems to be able to carry a lead role well. She is kicking butt right off the bat, does a lot of her own stunts. And it is convincing. I always love seeing Jude Law. I mean the pros are obvious;

1. Set in the 90s. The first scene includes a Blockbuster video store. That was awesome!

2. The soundtrack. You guys will love it, Nirvana, Elastica, TLC, No Doubt, etc.

3. New refreshing origin story.

4. New take on Skrull/Kree conflict.

But everything falls apart in the second half of the movie. The dialogue between Jackson and Larson in the second half of the flick is just dumb and boring, when it is supposed to be funny. In the second half of the film, they seem to just resort to gimmicks and all kinds of weirdness. Like there is literally a conversation between a little girl and her mother who is contemplating going on a mission with Larson. The little girl tells her mother to go ahead and risk her life because it is something she always wanted to do.

I was like what????

It is like a failed DeadPool movie for the second half of the film. It is trying to be this edgy comedy and it is just pitiful.

So two and a half stars out of four.

Its a shame. It could have been so much better. Oh and another thing. The end credits scene ties into Endgame. And it is awesome!

  • I’d have to disagree to your opinion on the scene when the little girl and her mother talk about whether or not she should go to space on the ‘coolest mission in history’

    In my opinion, every good movie has its parts that don’t seem substantial to the plot necessarily, but still add a spark to the movie. Although if the little girl didn’t convince her mum to go to space the whole movie would be different. So I think that scene has importance but even if it didn’t, I think it would add something to the movie.

    • No, it could have been re-written to be more realistic. If they were doing a Deadpool like comedy, it could have been a hilarious scene. But they chose this context. So make it vital that she has to a participate and give us a scene where she is explaining this to her daughter. There is plenty of feminist stuff to fit in there about how her mother has duty/responsibility from being in the military, etc., etc.

      In my opinion.. again.. I don’t think adding the daughter in captain marvel was a waste of time. It does add something to the movie.. maybe not what you’d like. It adds to the past of captain marvel, and yes their relationship was indefinitely not a key point.. it’s still part of who she is in the future. But, in my opinion the only time a character is a ‘waste of time’ is if the character has legitimately nothing to do with the plot.

    • 2d

      Well that’s your opinion. We are speculating about a future film when they introduce the “Black” female who eventually takes the mantle. It was still a goofy way to introduce her, if that is what they were doing.

  • A movie supporting a certain narrative of course doesn’t make it a good movie, it’s just a good initiative

    • I just realised something that may be a plot hole. Why didn't Nick Fury call in Captain Marvel when Loki and the aliens attacked and the US government planned to nuke New York? Or why didn't Nick Fury call in when an out of control AI attempted to destroy the world and nearly succeeded?

      I'm just saying, there were too many close calls and Nick Fury never even considered contacting her until just now?

    • Yeah, that was stupid. They should have addressed it by saying her mission with the Skrulls would take a couple of decades.

    • Avengers 1:
      Nick Fury: "Nuclear bomb and Aliens are destroying New York? I don't need to call her."
      Avengers 2:
      Nick Fury: "An out of control AI going to destroy the world? I don't need to call her."
      Infinity War:
      Nick Fury: "Oh sh*t! Everyone dead. Better call her in!"

  • Go woke, you go broke.

    The identity politics Brie played outside the movie wasn't needed, but since Ghostbusters I think people have learned to recognize that when the identity card is being played, it's going to be dull and cringy... kinda like the intersectional religion.

    All I got to say... Wonder Woman didn't have to pull that shit, and nobodies shitting all over that movie. I don't watch movies, but I am seeing peoples' reactions to them. Most of us all cringe when we start hearing the 'social justice' narrative because it's just a tell tale sign of the oncoming cringe fest we'd rather not deal with. Couple that with the over the top outrage that's going to be flung about like monkeys taking a break from jerking off whenever someone verbally disagrees with them... yeah... I don't have to see this movie to know it sucks.

    I knew it was going to suck as soon as it started getting the 'woke' push behind it. Again... Wonder Woman didn't need that shit did it? In fact I remember the damn intersectionals getting pissed off that she shaved her armpits and was too pretty. And more than likely all that 'outrage' came from 2 or 3 beasts making a stink on twitter and nowhere else.

    • I almost hide your post.

      Dude, calm down.

      The movie sucked. And certainly not because of the whole feminist angle.

      It sucked because it had bad dialogue, bad writing, and bad chemistry for the second half of the film. I would have not seen it, if it were not for free. I was invited by several different firms. But settled on the one that had dinner included.

      That was awesome.

    • Show All
    • The issue is that movies are political. They are cultural. They are social. They are a lot of things. You simply pick what you want to watch and go enjoy yourself.

      If you don't like certain types of cinema. Don't go see it. I didn't go see Soul Plane because i thought it was a bunch of nonsensical ignorant "Black" minstrel crap.

      But you might not see it that way. I didn't care then and I wouldn't care now. It isn't my kind of flick.

      Not that this one was. I was invited to the premiere. Otherwise, I don't think I would have seen it. I think the comic book flicks are starting to wear on me. I haven't even seen Aquaman.

    • I feel the same there... comic flicks and remakes of old movies are starting to grind my gears. Not that I can't enjoy them once in a while, but Hollywood seems to be stuck on being unoriginal right now.

      ... and I thought the 90's was bad with the 5 minute softcore porn scenes I simply didn't need to see in order to know what happened.

  • "If it isn't identity politics when there is a male lead, how can it be when a female is a lead?"
    -
    For one, a female lead alone does not mean that it's identity politics. Ripley from Aliens or Sarah Connor from Terminator were good female leads and no one complains about them. It's the intent that matters, and Brie showed her intent by pushing her agenda during the marketing of this movie.
    For two, no one's pushing anything pro-male anymore.

    "1. Set in the 90s. The first scene includes a Blockbuster video store. -
    That was awesome!"
    -
    That was pandering to the currently growing ''90's kid'' audience. In the late 2020's, movies will start to put in things and scenes from the early 2000's and on and on. I mean, did everyone forget how 80's references were the thing 10 years ago?

    in my opinion there's nothing refreshing of the story - they even promoted it for following the marvel formula well, which is debatable.

    "The end credits scene ties into Endgame. And it is awesome!"
    -
    This is borderline misuse of the words awesome. If everything is awesome then nothing is, really. Awesome is supposed to be something you practically never see and will likely never see. Something that make you AWE. I highly doubt a scene at the beggining and end of the movie brought out literal awe from you.

      Well, don't go see the flick. But one thing is for certain, be prepared for more action flicks with female leads. Its funny in other nations, this was an issue that was put to bed decades ago.

      As for pushing pro-male stuff, again, that's kind of weird. It isn't like pro male stuff had to be pushed, right? You don't really think Hollywood in the 80s and 90s, actually thought to themselves, "we need to do more male action movies", right?

      1. I don't can't even begin to understand your criticism here. So there isn't really a need to comment.

      2. You don't seem to know the comic. That's cool. The original origin story was quite different than what they do in this movie. I liked it. I also liked the different take on the Skrull/Kree war. It they could have spent more time on it, it would have been really cool. And if you don't like the guy who plays the Skrull boss, something is wrong with you.

    • You miss the point. I don't hate the leads because of their gender. Heck, I do not even hate Brie Larson. I just hate that she's a bigot.

    • @Liam_Hayden So how did I miss the point? If you don't like what she said, don't go see the movie. The flick kind of surpassed all expectations. And probably because of all the hype around the whole feminist schtick. The funny thing is, it is actually a pretty average movie.

      You can do whatever you wish or think whatever you want. But I just think it is a much more effective argument to separate the two issues. Take Brie on for what she said. And evaluate the movie for what it is.

      A very lukewarm experience.

  • I saw it yesterday. The movie was boring for a superhero film. Not much combat and the combat that existed was not invigorating. The storyline they went with for the skrulls is very different from the comics but it worked for the movie. It was not a horrible fill nor was it a snoozefest but it was lackluster.

  • The "identity politics" around this movie had nothing to do with the fact it has a female lead - it has everything to do with Brie's idiotic rants. Additionally, the trailers for it have left much to be desired, and Captain Marvel as a character has never been exceptionally popular anyway. This was their opportunity to change that, but I think they've floundered.

    I agree entirely with "extremely average" as a movie, but I would place it well below average for a Marvel movie. It's like they didn't really know what they wanted to do with this movie, and assumed that the fact it had a female lead alone would carry it. To even try and make it sound like some kind of groundbreaking development to have a female lead in an action movie was very odd too, considering there are literally dozens, some of which were actually good.

    At this point, I'm honestly kind of ready for the MCU to just come to an end. I know that's not happening, but these movies are becoming more and more forgettable.

They don't attack me personally for being a white male like The Toxic Avenger Brie Larson does. She is a bigot, but because her bigotry is against white men more people do not seem to care. Switch out other unavoidable characteristic for "white" and "male" to understand how bigoted it is.

  • I haven't watched the film yet and I'm not even excited about it. I don't know anything about the character. I just know she's a human/kree hyrbid (thanks Wikipedia) and that she's supposed to be the strongest character in the MCU. That kinda reminds me of Superman and I absolutely hate that garbage character. I've never liked characters that are too powerful to even exist on earth, they're exaggerated af!

      And you are right about Superman. It is so hard to write good stories about him, because he is too powerful. You can't think up a good villain.

    • Yeah and it's not even just the movie, it has happened again and again in the comics too! Then when the writers show Superman getting beat up by Lex Luthor, doesn't that seem like a desperate attempt to SOMEHOW show Superman as vulnerable? Hell he can even travel through time! 😂

      Dragon Ball also started giving some lame reasons to add more powers and forms to saiyans. Why is it that Vegeta never really manages to surpass Goku? Vegeta trains more, trains harder, he's older than Goku and has been fighting superpowered aliens since he was a child, so why can't he? Writers say Goku's power comes from fighting to save people, his selflessness in a way and Vegeta just fights to feed his greed for power... Fine, I'm ready to accept that but after the Cell Saga, Vegeta has a family, he accept Earth as his home and started fighting to protect people so why can't he match Goku's level now? Some characters just get ruined because of the plot armors! Truth is, DC wants Superman to be their most powerful character, so they do anything to keep him that way. Akira Toriyama wants to keep Goku as the main character, he'll also do anything to keep things that way. 😑

    • Yeah agreed, about Dragonball. They want Goku to be the most powerful, even though the stories are starting to contort to being nonsensical at this point.

      He just came off as a nerdy high school teen who was rejected by the cool kids.

      In fact, Dawn of Justice, was worse than Justice League in my opinion.

      But I will give you this, in the animated space, DC is far ahead of Marvel. Why they can't follow that blueprint when it comes to the films is beyond me.

      As per usual, RolandCuthbert inserts text in what he THINKS someone said, rather than reading their words. I never said movies were apolitical in the past. I said I don't want to be lectured about politics in what should have been an apolitical feel-good movie.

      My issue with her comments is that they are racist, ageist, and sexist.

      This is the equivalent of LeBron James saying there need to be more Asian sports journalists because he's tired of hearing opinions from old white and black men. That sounds a bit fucked up, doesn't it?

      Keep in mind this woman doesn't even believe the bullshit she espouses. Pretty much everybody at her press junkets has been white men.

      My stance is consistent. If you're the better player, you get to be in the NBA. If more people are drawn to your reviews, you have more ad revenue to write your reviews.

      Let me guess, now is when you say that stupid one-liner about how you don't believe in race, after talking about race. What a fucking race-baiting shill you are.

      It is simply you are unaware, because;

      1. The political statement is one you agree with.

      2. You are so disconnected, you can't tell.

    It's nowhere near the worst of the marvel movies. That would be the likes of Thor 2 the Dark World or Iron Man 2 (second half especially), or even most of Iron Man 3.

    Captain Marvel hits a few of the main character tropes, modernises them for the current climate, and tells a semi-decent origin story.

    Ronan the Accuser gets better, more effective presence and dialogue here than in his previous outings.

I will admit though, it's been a while since I watched wonder woman and I don't remember the details so I may be giving it too much credit on being less feminist. But I can assure you, Captain Marvel was trying too hard to push the feminist propaganda and it could've made up for it if the story was better.

      All I can say to your first comment is "whatever".

      I do not believe you.

      As for the feminist overtones in Captain Marvel, they are nothing compared to WW. Even the scenes you submitted were questionable. Again, those are actual debates we have in American society every single day.

      But no one should be making the claim that men are only capable of violence.

      Yet, you are still talking about the two movies being equivalent somehow.

      That is simply amazing.

  • I want to say it was fun, it was not an amazing movie but it was enjoyable to watch. It is good for what it was. I really enjoyed her struggle to find her identity and own it.

    • Well, it wouldn't be a comic book "Dark Knight", but Bimbo Bree is making it worse for herself to be certain.

    • It is hilarious how much this flick has upset so many folks at GaG.

      Captain Marvel, the latest superhero film from Disney’s Marvel franchise, is bringing home the bacon — to the tune of a $455 million box office total for the weekend.

      The movie, Marvel’s first to be headlined exclusively by a female superhero, is off to the second largest global opening of any superhero movie behind Avengers: Infinity War and the sixth best global box officer premiere of all time.

  • I try to avoid movies with bigoted actors and actresses in them.

    • Did you know that the Cpt America actor is one as well?

    • @ThisDudeHere Yup. I don't have problems with people with different political views, but when they start singling out entire groups based upon unavoidable characteristic because of issues with some people who also share those characteristics, then they are bigots.

      It is an easy parse:

      Old = unavoidable
      White = unavoidable
      Men = XY is unavoidable.

      If we substitute other unavoidable traits, we will see just how bigoted it is.

      examples:

      Old Black Men

      Young (any) men

      Young (any) women

      Old (any) women

  • I think they purposely tried to hold back on captain Marvel. she will be awesome in Endgame.. better than this movie. they tried to make it mediocre on purpose

    This movie was trash. Stop defending it because internet feminists force you to. Wonder Woman was a millions times better.

    • Yeah, they should have focused on situational comedy. Not in trying to write one-liners. That was just stupid.

  • The movie was great!
