Captain Marvel ★★★

the scene where carol has flashbacks to getting knocked down and standing up again every time is so powerful.
i don’t care that it’s an obvious metaphor.
so many women never even get the chance to stand back up. the fact that she does multiple times is so SO important. i wish i could’ve seen this growing up, because damnit i would’ve felt empowered.

i’m grateful that little girls across the world will get to experience a film like this in their formative years.
hearing women diverse in age clap, laugh, and cheer in the rows behind me felt fantastic. representation matters.
