Okay so I will admit that I don’t know NEARLY as much as my kids and husband do about all of the Marvel Superheroes. I can follow along with most of the movies, (Black Panther was and still is my FAV) but I’m usually asking a ton of questions to my husband who is a Marvel super geek. (SUPER DUPER GEEK) So when I decided to take my boys out to the movie, I was MORE than a little intimidated. Hubby wouldn’t be there to answer my questions as he would be home with the baby. (Babysitting is hard to get these days y’all.)
I was also VERY intrigued by the fact that there would be a WOMAN lead and the setting is mostly in the 90s. Plus we attended the Alamo Drafthouse which has yummy food and snacks to enjoy during the movie.
Captain Marvel is an extraterrestrial Kree warrior who finds herself caught in the middle of an intergalactic battle between her people and the Skrulls. Living on Earth in 1995, she keeps having recurring memories of another life as U.S. Air Force pilot Carol Danvers. With help from Nick Fury, Captain Marvel tries to uncover the secrets of her past while harnessing her special superpowers to end the war with the evil Skrulls.
Captain Marvel Movie Reaction
I LOVED IT!! I honestly wasn’t expecting to love it so much. There were several themes that I loved about it including strong sisterhood, and always getting back up after you fall down. There were a few parts that I didn’t quite understand until more of the movie progressed. I absolutely adored the 90s themed soundtrack and giggled at all of the references–hello–I’m old.
Also, you can totally follow along if you have never seen a Marvel movie–my friend came with us and she enjoyed it too! In the little that I’ve seen, I understood exactly where Captain Marvel fit in the bigger picture. I was SO satisfied with myself as the dots were connected and now I await Avengers: End Game just as much as the kids! Today I have this Captain marvel Superhero Popcorn recipe for you to try!
