Captain Marvel ★★½

Better than Thor 2, but really not very good. It’s a bit of a mess, overdoes and forces the 90s references and the best bit of the film is far too short (the bit with Vers and Fury trying to solve the mystery). I couldn’t give a damn whether the lead is male or female, the story has to be compelling, well structured and fun. And this really isn’t. There is some poor CGI too (the black AI tentacles slime thing when we first see it plus the cat scenes).
