Owen GreenLit’s review published on Letterboxd:
Carol: “I don’t need to prove anything to you.”
LISTEN. Captain Marvel is the hero the MCU desperately needed. She is not self deprecating. She is not needlessly depressed. She is powerful on her own terms without anyone else’s permission and THAT’S extraordinary.
This movie is everything I could’ve wanted for one of my absolute favorite superheroes. Sure the first 30 minutes are messy, but from the moment she returns to Earth to her last moment on screen, it was incredible.
The most depressing part is now I have to wait seven damn weeks until Endgame and I’m already bouncing of the WALLS!
Who wants to go with me to my second watch this weekend???
Oh and most importantly: I think we can all agree that Carol and Maria are gay as dust and there is no one on this Earth who can convince me otherwise.
