Captain Marvel ★★★★

As for Captain Marvel, my general impression is that this is why we go to the movies, isn’t it? Not so we can abide the trolls on Twitter, or let awards seasons grind us down, or dwell on the negative, the political, the whatnots of the film world. No, we embrace the big, bold entertainment coming at us in the dark. Uninhibited celluloid pleasure. For which, even with a few narrative hiccups, whatever your tastes, Captain Marvel ticks so many of the right boxes.
