Captain Marvel ★★★★½

I just think you should consider what kind of example you’re setting for your daughter. 

Despite poor lighting at times and perhaps one 90s needle drop too many, Captain Marvel makes a good case for consideration as one of the best MCU origin stories. Also contains one of the few genuinely surprising third act reveals in all of the superhero genre. 

But where the film truly shines is in its depiction of an intelligent, strong, resilient woman whose emotions aren’t treated as a weakness, but as a source of power. AND who doesn’t even need a love interest to make for a compelling narrative!  Even Wonder Woman couldn’t pull off that trick. Highly Recommended.
