KXIP vs KKR Live Score

Brie Larson in Captain Marvel.

She doesn't have the elegance and aura that Gal Gadot does in Wonder Woman, and her looks are rather plain too. "But I got a friend I wanna pick up though before we get to doing that".

For the eponymous hero (played by Oscar victor Brie Larson) - who shoots thunderbolts from her fists, can pilot any spacecraft and actually fly unaided herself - this change of emphasis is significant. Several commentators have criticised the commodification of IWD and the emphasis on projects such as these media launches over raising awareness of more serious issues affecting women globally.

While the film may be emotionally reserved, the same can not be said of response it has engendered ahead of its release, especially among a small and vocal contingent who-for the first time in their lives-are feeling threatened by the inclusion of people who don't look like them in their pop culture fantasies. "I want you to be the best version of yourself", he blathers. I imagine that a lot of people think it's fun to stand up in the middle of a conversation with friends who all like Marvel movies and go "I think Avengers is everything that's wrong with today's cinema". Many wondered why no one helped out Tony in Iron Man 3, and even more are still wondering why Captain Marvel wasn't called in Avengers or Avengers: Age of Ultron.

In a review headed with the words "It's no Black Panther", he accuses Captain Marvel of "unimaginative plotting, cut-rate villains [and] a bland visual style". You can nearly feel all of them wanting to make such a movie during some passages of Captain Marvel. "Captain Marvel! She isn't wearing a bathing suit!"

Wolfe wrote at The Wrap that, "Brie Larson is a ideal fit for Carol, who begins the film as Vers, a Kree soldier being trained by Yon-Rogg (Jude Law) to control her emotions to become a better fighter". Apparently a lot of this film's budget went into digitally rejuvenating Jackson's face, as well as that of fellow agent Colson (Clark Gregg), back to their putative 1990s youths. Many of these reviews are still certified fresh on Rotten Tomatoes, which is perhaps to their credit or indication they're grading on a superhero movie scale. You may think you know how bad some music was in the '90s, but nothing can prepare you for the horror of No Doubt's "Just a Girl" serving as the background for a big superhero clash. Now, obviously no one's saying that all women will love Captain Marvel while all men hate it, but it is a fact that most of the trolls attacking the film are men.

Tiger Woods' neck injury causes panic
Hadwin's spot in the restricted field event was never in doubt as members of the last Presidents Cup team automatically qualify. Woods, 43, is coming off a bounce-back season after years of health problems that included spinal fusion surgery.

Marvel Studios is known for combining equal amount of action and humor in its movies.

It also takes its girl-power theme more low-key for granted than you might expect, though its selection of 1990's rock tunes by mostly female lead singers is clever if also a little obvious.

Boden and Fleck were unusual picks to direct "Captain Marvel", considering that most of their previous work has been for very non-cosmic TV series such as "Billions", "The Affair", and "In Treatment".

Women aren't stupid. We know when a movie isn't good.

Don't worry, we'll know if the movie isn't good. You won't have to tell us. To launch a Captain Marvel film set in 2019 with her being presented as a "novelty" in a man's world within the film's world would seem tone deaf and clumsy (even if that is what's happening in the "real" 2019). Give him something to eat, he shows up.

I spent a perfectly enjoyable two hours watching Captain Marvel on Monday.
