Captain Marvel ★★½

Should it be enough that one of these is finally fronted by a female superhero who decides when and how to exercise her own formidable power? Maybe, but the movie surrounding her is an old-school MCU expository slog with almost zero narrative or visual idiosyncrasy. And don't even get me started on the obnoxious needle drops. A real step back after the last few relatively risky and weird entries. All that said I'd be up for it if the cat killed Thanos.
