    Captain Marvel

    Saw this last weekend and really enjoyed it. I know the die-hard Marvel comic fans had some issue with it diverting a little from the original comic story but for an origin superhero movie, I felt it did a good job.

    Also, the post credit scene sets up Endgame nicely.

    I heard you needed to see this before Endgame. Would you say that's true?

    Probably so, she's going to be a big part of end game it looks like.

    Far exceeded my expectations, I'm not sure what I was expecting but this was pretty good.

    Captain Marvel is probably one of my top 5 Marvel characters now.

    I would guess so. The Avengers movies are totally reliant on mythologies set up in the movies featuring the constituent characters both in terms of plotting and to lend them any emotional gravitas at all.

    I really liked it. They've hit a good stride recently, with Spider Man Homecoming, Thor: Ragnarok, Black Panther, Infinity War, and now this (caveat: still haven't seen either Ant Man movie).

    Solid movie. Climax suffers from what I call the Superman complex - overpowered hero makes it difficult to believe in any real peril.

    It was better than Ant-Man and the Wasp, but I don't think I'd have had it over any of the previous four releases before that (Spider-Man: Homecoming, Thor: Ragnarok, Black Panther, Avengers: Infinity War). It isn't in my top ten of all the MCU movies, which is not necessarily a slight on the movie, but more a testament to how good they've been.

    I thought this was really good, like the back-story.

    One caveat to my loving the movie: the "tribute" to "Top Gun", while an AMAZING character, was a little corny.

    Go watch Ant-Man...if even only for what you get to see in the credits.

    This is where I'm at. Unlike @Jumper_Dad , I had huge expectations for this one. Was really geeked about seeing it. So, for me, while it was a good movie...it came no where near Black Panther or Infinity War...it was a little disappointing in that regard.
