Captain Marvel: Now on Blu-Ray {+ Enter To Win!}

**I received a complimentary copy of this movie for consideration. All thoughts are 100% my own.

Set in the 1990s, “Captain Marvel” is an all-new adventure from a previously unseen period in the history of the Marvel Cinematic Universe that introduces the MCU’s first stand-alone, female-franchise title character—Carol Danvers aka Captain Marvel. When we first meet Danvers, she already possesses her superhero powers, having left her earthly life behind and become a member of an intergalactic elite Kree military team called Starforce, led by their enigmatic commander, Yon-Rogg. But after Danvers has trained and worked with the Starforce team, and become a valued member­, she finds herself back on Earth with new questions about her past. While on Earth she quickly lands on the radar of Nick Fury, and they must work together against a formidable enemy in the form of the Skrulls—the notorious Marvel bad guys made even more dangerous by their shape-shifting abilities—and their leader, Talos, who is spearheading a Skrull invasion of Earth.

Based on the beloved Marvel comic-book series, first published in 1967, “Captain Marvel” stars Academy Award® winner Brie Larson (“Room,” “Kong: Skull Island”) as Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel,  Samuel L. Jackson  (Marvel Studios’ “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” “The Hateful Eight”) as Nick Fury, Ben Mendelsohn (“Rogue One: A Star Wars Story,” “Mississippi Grind”) as Talos, with Annette Bening (“American Beauty,” “20th Century Women”) as Supreme Intelligence, with Clark Gregg (“Marvel’s The Avengers,” “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”) as Agent Coulson and Jude Law (“Sherlock Holmes,” “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald”) as Yon-Rogg.

Who doesn't love a good superhero movie?

I know they are ALWAYS a hit in our home. While I can't say I'm a die hard fan of all the various characters in the Marvel universe, I do enjoy them nonetheless. They're packed full of action and adventure...and tend to be movies that the whole family cannot just watch together, but actually enjoy too. So, while I was not familiar with the character of Captain Marvel before this, I was excited to watch it nonetheless.

The verdict? We loved it. As a 90s kid, it was fun for me to see that little blast from the past--- with references to Blockbuster, Radio Shack and dial up Internet...to name a few. My oldest child is also very into all things 80s and 90s, so that was a real treat for him as well. ESPECIALLY the Blockbuster scenes, as that has been an obsession of his recently. Of course being set in the 90s you can imagine the soundtrack was pretty fantastic as well. I couldn't help but sing along when 90s hits like 'Waterfalls', etc started to play.

Beyond that though, we enjoyed the movie for the story too. As I said, we love a good superhero movie in our house, and this one certainly fit the bill for us!
