Directors Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck did a wonderful job with the movie “Captain Marvel.”

I love the overtones of feminism that were present throughout the movie, giving itself the theme of perseverance in girls and women.

I also appreciate the tribute to the late Stan Lee in the movie, showcasing stills and clips of him throughout the years.

There are a lot of things to appreciate about this movie, from casting, character chemistry, music selection, and movie quality.

The humor and chemistry Samuel L. Jackson and Brie Larson brought to their characters, Nick Fury and Carol Danvers aka Captain Marvel, was seamless and realistic.

Not only could I see the camaraderie develop between Carol Danvers and Fury, I can feel it as well.

They made a great team in the movie.

Even the bond between Fury and the cat Goose was too cute for words.

Their humor was not overbearing and presented itself at perfect timing, and the same goes for the humor presented from others throughout the movie.

Which is slightly surprising for me, considering that Marvel movies can go all out on their humor that it becomes overkill.

Thankfully that wasn’t the case for this movie, otherwise it would have made it difficult for me to love it.

The music presented in the movie is slightly reminiscent to some played in the “Guardians of the Galaxy.”

I feel like the music fit 90s theme the movie had.

Speaking of the 90s, “Captain Marvel” was set in the 90s, and it did well bringing prominent things and places from that time back to the forefront of my mind, as I’m sure it did for others.

I’m confident that it will either make people giddy with joy or groan with nostalgia.

The overall make of “Captain Marvel” was superb, the directors did well when it came to the timing of their flashbacks, script writing, and their focus of making this all about the main character’s origin story.

Carol Danvers’ origin story was thought out and well rounded, it went well with the flashbacks that were included in the movie.

Yes, her origin story, as did the rest of the movie, did embody female empowerment.

And I know some people had negative words to say to that, but this is 2019 and quite frankly it fit well with the story the directors and writers wanted to get across, which is showing the characteristics of perseverance and humanity that embodies Carol Danvers.

Some can argue that this movie was also a bit of an origin story for Nick Fury in the way that it depicted more of his character than previous Marvel movies.

The only thing I wished was better was their suspense on certain aspects of the movie.

The “aha” moment was revealed too early, but it was revealed at a decent enough pace.
