Saw Captain Marvel this weekend and... it was fine.

I'm SUPER DUPER GLAD that the movie resonated with so many people who were long overdue to get a marvel movie starring someone who wasn't some dude. That's a good thing! I REALLY REALLY LIKED the reveal that the skrulls were not bad guys. That was a really good idea! Young(er) nick fury and Carol being best friends was genuinely great!

But otherwise? I just thought it was fine.

I think this is a case where the movie was not specifically for me, in the way other MCU films generally are. And honestly, that's okay! I don't need every movie in to be made with me specifically in mind! These movies can be for other people! Heck, the fact that this is one of the FIRST movies in this multi-billion-dollar franchise that didn't feel like it was specifically for me is kind of a huge problem all by itself!

So yeah, basically I enjoyed it, but didn't LOVE it, but I'm glad other people did.

Default A NEXTWAVE MOVIE WOULD BE THE MOST FOR-ME MOVIE EVER.

NOW MAKE A FUCKING NEXTWAVE MOVIE GOD DAMN U.

YOU JUST ESTABLISHED THAT MONICA RAMBEAU EXISTS.

TEAM HER UP WITH A SURLY ROBOT, AN IDIOT KLEPTOMANIAC, AN ALCOHOLIC BARGAIN-BIN SUPERMAN, AND A LADY WHO REALLY HATES DEMONS, AND HAVE THEM FIGHT FING FANG FOOM!

HAVE THEM FIGHT FING FANG FOOM AS AN OPENING BEFORE YOU EVEN SHOW THE TITLE.

Don't make Nextwave and instead feature Boom-Boom in something that's good.

I get the sense that most everyone thinks of X-Factor primarily as Peter David's comedy stuff instead of the Simonson book with teenage orphan adventures, and thinks of X-Force as Liefeld's Murder Children or the gritty 2000s death squad books instead of secretly frequently being the best 90s X-book about characters having feelings under a number of writers after Liefeld was gone.

So, honestly, I think Next Wave is . . . probably a best case scenario for an adaptation of Tabitha Smith, even though she's totally out of character and definitely more fun in the orphan adventures version of X-Factor and young adult feelings version of X-Force.

(What's actually probably going to happen is: No one will adapt any property prominently featuring her.)

I just want to believe in a world where someone adapts Fallen Angels and it ends up paying very belated dividends for Jo Duffy, even though that's not remotely how these things work. But my daydreams do!

I mean, they basically did in Deadpool except it wasn't her despite basically being her and it was Negasonic Teenage Warhead because that's a more fun name.

Homecoming? Go sit on a tack!
Spider-Man 2? Go eat a pear!

Into the Spider-Verse is the clear winner w/r/t Spidey Super-Stories

Ah. Now that you've mentioned it, I can't unsee it.

Pretty much sums up the way I feel about the 2016 Ghostbusters!

On a related note, Captain Marvel left me feeling that it was made 99% specifically for me, with that 1% being a transforming robot.
