is a Marvel Cinematic Universe movie, and MCU movies are generally good-to-excellent, and Captain Marvel
is no different. It’s smart, funny, and deliriously self-aware, and
there are a bunch of cool explosions. It’s great! There you go! Review over! “But wait,” you say. “It is
different. Aren’t you going to mention… [points at boobs, from one to the other, back and forth, maintaining eye contact, making things weird]?” Ugh, FINE. I'll say it: Yes, Carol is a woman, and this is the first Marvel movie centered on a woman. In that sense, this is
different from the stuff that came before it! It’s even better! I’ve really enjoyed my Bruce Bannerses and Steve Rogerses, but I liked my Carol Danvers even more. It was great to see someone who looked like me straight-up destroy
alien bad guys.
