Clunky first act stops it being truly great, and there's one section at the climax that felt rather gratuitous and fansevice-y. Also, there were a couple of times where it felt like it was trying to be an MCU movie with the humour, and it really didn't need to do that.

I love that there's a sexist biker jerk who tells her to smile. Fucking brilliant.


Found the biker bit especially funny considering the douches that had used that smile app on her posters back during the movies promotion.

Bunch of sad cunts.


Loved the pisstake of them someone did by photoshoping smiles on all the other MCU posters, looked so fucking weird.

Loved the pisstake of them someone did by photoshoping smiles on all the other MCU posters, looked so fucking weird.

I mean, honestly, Captain America has smiled...what, five, six times total in the last ten years? Not once in a trailer that I can think of. The only smilers off the top of my head are Scott Lang and Tony Stark. I think T'Challa smirked a couple times. As a dude with resting asshole face who is never in as bad a mood as people assume, fuuuuuuuuuck people who tell other people to smile. I thought that was a genderless thing, like we all hated those people. Until recently I had no idea it was just me and all of women kind.

The smile thing just shows how manufactured the outrage was over this movie imo.

Before Brie Larson made her comments on wanting diversity in the reviewers, people were calling her wooden and complaining she didn’t smile enough in the trailers. Her entire acting career was ignored as self proclaimed experts declared her unfit for a superhero film based entirely on the trailer.

I mean, I thought her performance was a little flat, but I also acknowledge she’s exceedingly talented from the rest of her career and I think she was just directed that way.

The kinds of people who complained about this movie were always going to find something to complain about.

Finally got to see Captain Marvel last night. It was a decent movie, fun and with enough action, don't know why anybody needs to complain about it. And why would she need to laugh? She lost her memories, has been a soldier for six years in an alien war and then finds out she's been lied to. Where's the fun in that?

Also, I need more Flerken.

Not only is Gunn back for G3, his Suicide Squad movie is a complete reboot. That man is a treasure.
