I thought I already had a favorite, and I did not think that they could make a movie that I would love more than anything I have seen from this universe so far. But it happened. This is now going to be my f*cking favorite Marvel movie of all time.
Before I head it to why I really liked this movie, I need to mention Wonder Woman for a second. You might argue, that DC decided to go and make an all female superhero movie before Marvel did, and although you are technically right, let me ask you, do you know Captain Marvel? And this is the main difference: although we were all happy that WW was not a sexist movie exploiting the famous bathing-suit like dress of the original comic book, she is still one of the most famous comic book characters ever written. The fact that DC went with her was still a safer bet, then how Marvel decided to give a separate movie to a mostly unknown hero outside of the comic book reader community. Nonetheless, taking these two movies into account, we now have two awesome all female superhero movies that can lead the way to other awesome movies showcasing that not only do we want them but we need them.
Finally, and most importantly, every single female character in this movie was just wonderful. The story was devoted to the women pilots in the U.S. Air Force, and they deserve every inch of praise. I can say that they were portrayed with respect and care. One of the major reasons for that is that there were no shots of Captain Marvel's ass, or her boobs, or any kind of sexy poses she could be forced into to, pretending that the audience still needs it... I hope this movie will lead way to other awesome female hero movies, as stated above as well.
Watch it? Please do. This movie is wonderful. It has a great 90s soundtrack - as it is when the story is situated - and it is all songs from my childhood, and I felt alive and part of the story more than I have in other MCU movies. I can't wait to see it again! And see Captain Marvel in Endgame.
