Captain Marvel is an oddity by way of being the first solo-led superheroine movie produced by Marvel Studios. Eleven years and twenty movies on from Iron Man, they finally entrust a story entirely to a woman, and the result is, much like Black Panther, special by virtue of being different. It’s not that Captain Marvel is breaking Marvel’s house rules—it’s not. Full Story

Sarah’s review of Captain Marvel will go up tomorrow. I saw it a couple of weeks ago. Quick reaction: I had a good time as soon as Brie Larson and Samuel L Jackson started hanging out. They are GREAT together. They’re the superhero BFFs I never expected. Maybe the nerds expected it but I had no idea. Full Story

The Oscars did right by Spike Lee in the Best Adapted Screenplay category. As we’ve established, it did not “do the right thing” in its choice for Best Picture. The most outspoken critic of Green Book’s win was Spike himself, who many outlets are reporting “stormed out Full Story

It unites strong-man David Dunn (Bruce Willis), evil mastermind Elijah Price/Mr. Glass (Samuel L. Jackson), and The Beast and his Horde of alter egos (James McAvoy). Full Story

Captain Marvel’s time travelling

If you’ve been visiting this site over the years, you know that I don’t know anything about superhero comic books. The only comic I’ve ever read is Archie. I care a lot about superheroes though because I love (most of) the movies, especially the Avengers movies. I love the Avengers so much. Full Story

In my Kidnap review, I talked about the Trashy Movie Paradox and how if you want to make a truly trashy movie, you have to commit to the trash. Well, The Hitman’s Bodyguard isn’t a trashy movie, but it is super, super dumb, and everyone involved commits to the dumbness—and the badness that follows—and it ends up being the kind of dumb-fun action flick Kidnap couldn’t quite manage to be. Full Story
