Captain Marvel ★★½

The radical decision to change the associated gender of Captain Marvel does little to make things more fresh. It's the usual superhero formula, tying in links to the rest of the Marvel Universe, while delivering semi-confusing storylines. Brie Larson does well in the title role and Samuel L. Jackson is the best thing in this because he's motherfucking Samuel L. Jackson. Calling him Fury doesn't change that. Perfectly fine popcorn movie, in not a bit bland.
