A Sunday night in the Loulou and Mo household and we couldn't resist a sneaky cinema trip to watch the new Captain Marvel movie.
To be honest though after watching Aquaman, I wasn't holding out much hope for it. Yes, yes I know Aquaman is DC and this is Marvel but I was so disappointed with the merman that I thought I might actually be getting over the whole comic book movie franchise.
Well my geeky friends, do not be alarmed! My love of a good old superhero movie has returned with Vengeance! Captain Marvel was brilliant!
So as you know, I'm no fancy film critic so I'll just say I loved it. It had a really retro and nostalgic feel to it and you can't help but feel the whole Top Gun vibe its got going on. Brie Larson as Captain Marvel was so relatable - okay not as a extra-terrestrial kree warrior but as a character, I think a few of us left the cinema, like wow she's pretty cool, if I was a superhero I think I would be Captain Marvel - okay maybe that was just me....
Great cast as always, Samuel L you are a god among men! Jude Law, I know you are a bad boy but geez I just can't resist. Loved seeing Ben Mendelsohn in this too ( Bloodline, Dark Knight Rises, Ready Player One ...)
So if you want a loud, action packed movie with great fight scenes and a handful of comedic moments thrown in along the way, then you will love Captain Marvel !
One last question you might have ... Will I be making any bags with Captain Marvel fabric? I'm off to search for fabric right now! But until then you could always check out this gorgeous Marvel-Ous messenger! Click on the picture for product info...
