They should have based Captain Marvel more on Daria, or Enid from Ghost world. Daria is a bit of an alien in her world, uses sarcasm as a defense against what she can't (or doesn't want to) understand; often ends up helping the people around her, but also has enough depth to make mistakes and learn from/admit when she's wrong. Carol Danvers is just... snarky and distant the majority of the time and kinda stays that way because there's nothing to prove that M.O. isn't always beneficial. She's just kinda... right... and that rightness is rewarded with godlike power. Yay.

I enjoyed Captain Marvel, I thought it was very entertaining. I also loved this critique, even if I am not quite in agreement with the boys.

What’s worse is there were a number of people (particularly ladies) who followed up Mar-Vell (a dude originally) as “Captain Marvel” in Marvel Comics and the first one was a black chick name Monic Rambeau who appears in this film as a little girl. Damn white bitch denied a black female lead. Now black chicks have to once again fall back on Catwoman for black, female comic book films while Brie Larson make yet another white woman comic book movie that once again pales heavily compared to Wonder Woman.

Rofl did Brie Larson really say the US is 30% white men, 30% white women, 20% black men, 20% black women? I mean....are Hispanics black now or something? Are there no Asians in the US?

I do want to point out that there is nothing wrong with an artist (Brie Larson) wanting to share their art/entertainment with people who they think might be impacted by it & might not otherwise get to see the movie by raising money for charity. I know it's part of the humor on this channel (which I am a big fan of), but I mean look at the comments, doing stuff like that feeds into the fucking maelstrom (regardless of what side of the issue you land on) this solid if unremarkable marvel movie has been dropped into. But then again a FIvid comment section isn't C-SPAN so what was I expecting.

A wrinkle in time was a huge farce. I wouldn't let my children see a movie that was completely changed from the book. So we bought the book instead. A wrinkle in time was made for one person. Ophrah. Her huge ego. that is what the movie was for. They absolutely did not have the audience in mind.

Well the race thing is fair here, if you consider Monica Rambeau.
Couple comparissons to other Marvel movies they missed: Thor had the premise of an alien coming to Earth, and it was portrayed way better. He was consistent in his persona: not a moron who was perplexed by everything, but at times his alien habits clashed with the Earth norms, like breaking a mug in a diner. Nick Fury using scotch tape to take a fingerprint off his badge and use it on a door was already done in Ant-Man.

I feel like Marielle Heller would have done a better job writing and directing. I also feel like Brie lacks some range.

In terms of the scandal, thanks for articulating my thoughts.

More women of color should be underpaid destitute freelance film critics.
The little "Star Wars" interview compilation in the middle of the video actually made my entire body begin to contort and twist in new, painful ways I never would have thought imaginable due to the massive amounts of pure, and raw cringe I suffered. Please, have a warning before showing such abrasive and harmful content.

Brie as Marvel wasn't a sufficient anchor for the film. I liked most of everything around her but found her just to be adequate. I am looking forward to how she interacts with the Avengers. Not so much for her individual story.

I like how Jay broke it down. She was asking for more diverse voices in reviews, but her snarkiness was off-putting for most people. I would have appreciated the film if it played out like Mike suggested more.

Usually in movies main hero goes through a journey to become a better version of himself. In this movie, main hero goes through a journey to become an ignorant bitch, who listens to noone. Consider this!

The only hoopla wonder woman got was great reviews, a little bit about empowering women thing, but they didn’t go overboard with that and called critics sexist or morons (thought critics are morons for giving ghostbusters 2016 a good review, even though it’s utter shit). WB and the team behind Wonder Woman played it cool, unlike Disney and the team behind captain marvel.
I like how the actress is only supersuccesful in real life because she accidentally got a pretty face, then ends up playing a character who gets supersuccesful because she accidentally got a superpowered body. I also like how this Super Privilege allows the character to commit crimes without consequences. But most of all I like how this capitalist super/nerdploitation cash grab, cynically disguised as an egalitarian achievement, is viewed en mass as a big step forward on the road to... where was it again humanity was trying to go? I keep forgetting. If all characters are now to become symbols for social issues, why not just cut out the middleman. Leave the projection screen empty so we can all project our personal defects on it ourselves. No boring run-of-the-mill script required.

Thanks for mocking geeks and gamers. Jeremy is such a whiny bitch, even though I agree with his points on paper. But man, he's insufferable. He'll make the same video over and over again, but with a different title, bitching about the same thing, over and over and over again.

I do not like Brie Larson very much. I do think she was misscast but my god, those people who create world war 3 on the internet and want to boycott the movie just because the lead actress is unlikeable is fu**ing ridiculous. Also, the 'white knights' that claim this movie is a masterpiece just because it's 'female empowering' are also just as bad. All this fighting and acting like children who got their feelings hurt and it's all for a simple thing as a movie that turns out to be mediocre? GREAT JOB INTERNET! The human race if fu**ed

Brie Larson is so full of herself, that wired interview she had was just bad. She literally treated over 70% of the questions like harassment or insult.

To me Captain Marvel ranks along with Iron Man 2 and Thor 2. The effects were pretty good, the story was weak, and Brie's delivery was poor.

The thing I don't get about this, the book "A wrinkle in time" was wrote with a christian perspective, either adaptation of that book from book to screen lacked that. I don't see why the films couldn't have that perspective. One adaptation was all white, one adaptation was biracial, wtf? It's about race?

I wonder if any of the other white dudes who watched this movie noticed that Nick Fury, badass commander of the avengers with decades of alien hunting under his belt, was regulated to black sidekick who was the brunt of every joke and couldn’t go a scene without doing something silly. Exactly like feminist romp The Force Awakens.
Theo Cambel

The makers of feminist media will continue to call their audiences sexist, as if the audience actually has a problem with strong women. The problem is with the idea of 'empowerment'. To deem someone as 'powerful', they must overpower others. I don't have a problem with strong women. I have a problem with making all of the men into blithering idiots to make the women seem powerful. It wouldn't be *women's* empowerment if it weren't specifically reductive towards men.

Ant man is top tier origin story MCU, up there with iron man and Guardian. Captain Marvel is Thor levels of OK
I feel like for the tone they were going for, it would have made more sense if the character got their power through hard work and overcoming something like tony stark. He built his first suit out of rocket parts in a cave, meanwhile cap marvel got her powers from just happening to stand too close to an exploding engine. Not really fitting with the feminist tone of "woman overcoming", felt more akin to winning the lottery then turning to the audience and going "You can do it too with hard work!" If they were going to stick with the power reducer "thing", it should have been more of a pressing problem. Not something you forget is even there until the last 15 minutes of the film.

+dvader518 Yes, they oh so subtly insert orange man bad references and Drumpff caricatures. Remember when this one character in Far Cry 5 talked about libtards and Obama? Yeah he literally said libtards and bashed Obama. Lefties were upset over it and i understand why. I wouldn't want some character talk about republicunts or whatever either. I play video games to get out of politics so for that reason games that go political i usually dont play. I dont even mind if they want to tackle subjects like globalism vs nationalism or the merit of hierarchies. They just need to do it right and i should be able to make up my own mind.

Commenting to the statement recommending seeing it to know who is coming to help. Skip the whole movie and just watch the mid credit scene. Tada, that's about as much introduction and development as is in the entire film, but bypassing all the other stupid inconsistencies and lazy writing.
