I give it a 7/10, it was a good movie but not memorable and a few things I didn’t agree with was: making the skrull race look innocent and likable, changing the origin of her powers, and changing the gender of Mar-Vell.

Spoiler Warning

What really put me off was her interaction with the African American pilot and her child. Why would Captain Marvel be so open about the Aliens with the kids, why was Captain Marvel being so stern on the pilot coming with her which seemed like a suicide mission even when the pilot had a child. Also of course, when movies typically cast a female African American they tend to make her the stereotypical “ loud and no nonsense” archetype.

I probably agree with you on about 7/10. I can't say I did not enjoy it, but I consistently thought this is good, but the same thing happening just could have been better. And honestly thinking about it makes it worse.

Problems with it there certainly are no shortage of it. From small stuff like Furys eye, being like the Mandarin twist. It makes you chuckle at the time, but then you just think what a waste it was and how you wanted more out of it. The avengers initiative having been named after her plane. Ronan being just a cameo(do something with him or don't use him) To big stuff like why the hell was Goose there on earth(and where is it now?), why did Mar-Vell let Carol fly the ship, why Carol did not take out Talos in the archive instead of running away even though that kind of direct action is what she wants to take at any other point in the movie and she thought he was the big bad(not like a couple of regular agents are a threat to her). Too thematic stuff like how it comments negatively on US foreign interference with the mass bombing of an innocent world for supposed terrorist who may as well just be civilians, but then make the big resolution a show of superior firepower, which is whats often at the core of just those military actions. Too the lack of a real climax conflict. Too the scenes straight from other marvel movies: Goose killing the kree is Groot killing the sakaraner in guardians. The Star Force team is the warriors three and Sif from Thor the opening battles is the jotun battle complete woth the bigger fodder guy that no sells her hits. The single random use of licensed music in a fight scene like in guardians. And behind the scenes stuff I don't judge the movies on like the skrull kree conflict coming down to a simple good evil conflict, using Yon-Rogg as essentially the main baddie, even though he is a nobody only important in early Mar-Vell atories, but Minerva who is a way bigger character as a minor henchman and the only one that seems to have died. To the Mar-Vell, Yon-Rogg twist being only a thing, because they lied in the promotional material, which probably doesn't even mean anything to most viewers. To sadly Brie Larson really only working about as well in the role as anyone that matches Carols physical looks could have done.

But on the other side Fury was hilarious, Talos was actually a cool character and they made use of him being this comedic not very intimidating villain to actually make the reveal that he was not evil work. The skrulls looked good and most designs were actually good. The tesseract reveal was actually good. The mind reading scene in the beginning was cool, but went on a bit too long. And the cat was funny, if you get over the nonsensical unexplained inclusion of it. It's an entertaining enough popcorn flick.

6/10 it was bland but it was enjoyable if that makes any sense. It does have quite a few lame or bad things about it that are much more noticable in this movie as compared to other Marvel films but I still enjoyed it more than the first two thors

6/10 best case scenario it’s around Thor/Doctor Strange and worst case it’s Iron Man 2 or maybe Thor 2.

A really bad movie is like the rushed poorly written infamous 1933 King Kong sequel Son of Kong.

5/10: Stiff acting from most actors, including the oscar winning actress in the lead role. Messy edition. Nothing espectacular about the cgi. The action scenes are nothing to write home about. It has many plot holes, and the events that tie her to the avengers feel like they were placed in there with a shoehorn.

super generic, lacked an interesting villain, generic hero without any unique characteristics

full of standard MCU quips, and felt like they might have rushed it

Generic as hell and the lead wasn't really relatable or alluring that being said my nieces loved it they're 5 and 3 and that's what this movie is really for girls 5-13 and families

Its a generic family movie meant for kids, the movie doesn't have much substance or character that some movies like Toy Story have

Its pretty much a standard marvel movie

The whole thing about the light engineer for example. If you pay attention to the plot around it. You will notice that some things don't make sense.
