Captain Marvel ★★½

Oof. Not great. The weakest Marvel since Doctor Strange, but that at least had jaw-dropping VFX. This... does not.

There is some fun to be had here and there for sure, but almost everything is undercut by a truly terrible script which botches every arc and emotional beat while also being weighed down with entirely too much sci-fi gibberish.

Plus, I know this is a Marvel issue in general, but it is completely infuriating how everyone in the movie reacts to life-altering, world-changing news with nothing but a shrug and some mild banter.

I was so excited to see what Boden & Fleck could do with this too. Half Nelson and Sugar are big faves of mine. What a bummer.
