Captain Marvel ★★★★

WOW, i’m VERY pleasantly surprised. i loved captain marvel. i haven’t had the best history with superhero movies of recent years, but this one was an exception. brie larson, who i was skeptical of at first, TOTALLY rocked it. she was such a badass... wonder woman couldn’t do it! 

 i really appreciated was the perfect balance of lightheartedness & humor with drama and action. it was great, and the nostalgia factor was a very good addition to the film without having to rely on it, loved the 90s setting. overall, this was a standout blockbuster of the decade, i think, and one i think i’ll look back on fondly in a few years!
