Episode #280 – Captain Marvel

This week on the podcast we go back in time to the 90s to talk about Captain Marvel, the MCU film that sits between Infinity War and Endgame and brings us the much-hyped character of Carol Danvers. Is it good? Yes. We explain why we think so.

NOTE: There were some issues with one of the mics, making Chewie hard to hear. Apologies in advance!

Captain Marvel: Review

To fully review a movie like Captain Marvel you need to spoil some things.  It’s inevitable and necessary. For those of you who wish to go in as blind as I did, I’ll keep this first part spoiler free.  My version of spoiler free, which means ZERO plot and character details.

Anyone who has ever listened to my podcast or read any of my work knows I’m very critical of Marvel.  I feel that too many people grant them a pass on all their problems and grade on a curve. When movies like “Ant-Man and the Wasp” are getting 7s and 8s out of 10, I feel like I missed a round of kool-aid.  Not saying that it was a bad film at all; it was a blast. Was it Captain Marvel? Absolutely not. Captain Marvel is exactly the movie I wanted and avoids nearly all the pitfalls I was afraid of. I haven’t been this impressed with a Marvel outing since the first Avengers.

Bryan’s MCU Review

UPDATED FOR ENDGAME!

!!!SPOILERS AHEAD, SO BE CAREFUL!!!

I love comic book movies.

I love them all, bad, good, and all the ones in between.  But, no matter how much I love them, I’m totally willing to criticize the hell out of them.  In my opinion, the best superhero film of all time is hands down, Superman 1978. Even with that ridiculous ending.  Every movie from there on out is just chasing their coattails. One franchise out there has been doing a pretty damn good job chasing.  Not all have been fantastic, none have been terrible, and I can proudly say I’ve seen, own, each and every one of them. I’m of course talking about the Marvel Cinematic Universe!

Like many of the boys and girls out there, I’m super excited for the upcoming Infinity Wars, and watched all the movies, all over again, to prepare.  As I watched, I found I enjoyed some more than I remembered, some less, and one that I was convinced was a great film but realized I was wrong. So here we go!  My review of each and every MCU movie released so far!

A warning before I dive in, for those of you who don’t listen to our show, I’m way more of a DC guy than Marvel.  If my opinions seem way off base and piss you off, just remember, I’m a crazy person who enjoys all the DC movies.  Though I really do love these movies and I’m excited for Infinity Wars this weekend.

Special shout out to Samantha Garrison who gives a stellar breakdown of the film. It’s all here and you won’t want to miss a single moment!
