Captain Marvel ★★

honestly can't believe how this has become the epitome of marvel's laziness and absolute zero effort filmmaking: there's little surprises in storytelling, the action sequences feel like they're cut on autopilot, oscar-winning™ brie larson is ~just fine~, and the wink-wink-nods-nods at female stereotypes/male condescension ("you should smile more!!" "don't be emotional!!") are mere throwaway one liners to collect kudos. it's a shame that this one had to be the one with all the "firsts", but i wish they focused on the ~human~ aspect of captain marvel, over her glowy superpowers that really just become silly and inane.
