Captain Marvel ★★★★

utterly charming, a dodgy first 30mins doesn't stop this film from going the extra mile. when carol arrives on earth via crashing into a BLOCKBUSTER, that's when the film picks up, and i was totally invested in carol's journey of self discovery. loved the angle they took with the kree/skrull war, ben mendelsohn was fantastic and jude law did a great job in subverting your expectations about his characters' morals. fantastic action sequences, a wonderful score and an especially brilliant soundtrack, captain marvel soars, and flies above a good majority of superhero origin films that have been released in the past 10 years or so.
