    I just saw this movie. It was pretty bad. I’m sorry ...but Brie Larson is not believable as a badass. Infact she is just dull,no personality...and Carol Danvers is not particularly likeable. I usually like Marvel because the characters have pretty good chemistry. Not this girl. Not with anyone.

    The story was okay...with parts that were just outright stupid. I won’t go into those as to not spoil anything for someone who may still want to see this Movie. I’ll rank it dead last in the Marvel verse. I didn’t particularly like Dr Strange,Black Panther,Iron Man 2 ,but all of those shine compared to this one IMO. I might rank it Higher than The Incredible Hulk...maybe...ruling still out on that one. :)

    As for a franchise comparison AquaMan, Justice League and Solo were all better. As was Return Of The Jedi.

    Ouch. That's pretty harsh. I just saw Captain Marvel last night. It was far from the best Marvel movie, but I'd put it ahead of Thor, the first Captain America, Thor 2, The Incredible Hulk, and Iron Man 2. It was certainly better than the DC movies we've seen lately.

    There were some inconsistencies, a few pretty big plot holes, and too little character development. The humor was hit and miss. The basic story was fine, but some of the details did not work or make sense in context.

    This is one I should have waited to watch on the small screen, but I'm not upset I saw it.

    I disagree that Captain Marvel was better than the DC movies. I really liked Wonder Woman. Aquaman was kind of cheesy in parts but it had some good moments and I wasn’t bored. Same with Justice League. Captain Marvel was slow for the most part to the point of being boring and then they rushed the end ( the ending was dumb on top of that). The other irritating thing about Captain Marvel is that they are trying to spin it as she was the superhero that started it all. I get that they want Captain Marvel to carry the franchise forward after losing two of the Chris’s and RDJ. They should have picked a different actress though. This one is bland with no personality.

    I do agree about the plot holes and consistency. I’m not sorry I saw it,but it was not as good as the hype. Much like Black Panther.

    My brother actually had tickets for the preview of Shazam. That movie was very good. Good character development,good casting and good chemistry of all actors. Fun story line. Shazam is definitely worth seeing.

    Aquaman wasn't as bad as I expected it to be, but I expected it to be so bad I wouldn't watch the whole movie. :p It was still pretty poor, and Jason Momoa is far more bland than Brie Larson IMO. Justice League was a hot mess. I think Captain Marvel and Wonder Woman were about on a par with each other. Both had a number of glaring flaws which lessened the enjoyment, but were still worth watching. However, I wish I had saved my money on both movies and watched them at home. :)

    I'm hopeful for Shazam, but DCs output to date does not give me a lot of confidence. Maybe they will do better with a comedy than they have with more dramatic super hero movies.
