Wow, I really did not expect A Madea Family Funeral to outgross this movie over the weekend, but I’m very pleasantly surprised it did. Crazy.

I just read that Captain Marvel is killing it at the box office. It does not need my help. I'm back to not seeing it in a theater. Thank you for your attention.


That's like, what? ... 7th best opening for an MCU movie. I've enjoyed all the MCU movies except for Thor II: The Bad One, but this movie isn't top 10. I'd say mid teens in quality.

Shut up, B. It made 153 million and it's the biggest opening of the year so far!
Do you trust those numbers? Disney and Rotten Tomatoes have not been anywhere near transparent enough regarding this movie for me to trust those numbers. I checked online before going out and at 4pm you could still get good tickets for the 8pm screening in my local theatre. Four hour before show time and an about 80 seat theatre was only 2/3 sold. Not sure I trust the numbers provided.

Are you serious? Like, you're sitting there in your underoos and this is the thought you're having?



ah.

I think after the marketing disaster of Ghostbusters (and maybe TLJ) Disney tried to avoid marketing it too much like that. They probably even told Brie Larsen to STFU at some point.

I was happy to shit on movies like Ghostbusters and TLJ and their "future is female" marketing, but I think this whole Captain Marvel controversy was massively overblown Twitter outrage. Larsen seems a little obnoxious and movie critics are corrupt leeches, but nothing they did here was that unforgivable IMO.

Plus, it's a Marvel movie. You gonna boycott that behemoth? Good fucking luck. Sounds like it performed in the middle of predictions.

All this twitter and rotten tomatoes fight ...i just dont care really. The Ghostbusters movie was crap. This is merely ok. Maybe female driven movies need to be better, thats all.

I'm kind of in awe that the movie is as good as it is given how painfully boring the directors are.

The posters have only altered the board, the point is to interpret it.

This movie was pretty okay. My biggest issue was the "HEY THIS IS THE NINETIES DID YOU KNOW ITS THE NINETIES LETS HIT YOU WITH MORE NINENTIES JUST INCASE YOU DIDNT KNOW IT WAS THE NINETIES DO YOU REMEMBER THIS THING FROM THE NINETIES"

Brie Larson was solid. Deaging Tech is getting scary good. They telegraphed the importance of the cat way too much. The Skrull makeup seemed cheesy.

Basically this movie was not a story that needed to be told, but just a character that needed to be introduced. And they did that just fine.

yeah, storywise its alright. But the direction is so fucking dull...i mean its worst than any Marvel movie. The effects and make up are awful too. The fights are boring.

There's only like four memorable fights/battles in the entire MCU.

I get so bored by an over reliance on CGI and characters that move like cartoons.

Really? I thought it got the “hey do your remember the nineties? I sure do” out of the way pretty quickly.

This was a fine movie, with a decent story that adds color to the whole marvel universe.

One marvel trope that needs to end is the masked super hero who is constantly showing their face. Like “oh here’s this technology so the Black Panther can randomly make his face appear in The middle of the fight to say something” and Captain Marvel is just as guilty. I blame Spider Man 3 for this whole thing starting.
