Captain Marvel was an awesome movie. Finally, Marvel got it right. I felt that they really missed the mark with women in super hero movies previously. Not as bad as DC has done, but I've always felt that they were lacking when compared to their male counter-parts.
Not so with Captain Marvel. This is a movie that takes a no-nonsense approach to portraying a strong willed woman in power. I can't really say too much without spoiling the movie for those who haven't seen it yet, but I will say it's a definite "must watch". One thing, you will definitely want to watch it before you watch the second part of Infinity Wars. This movie sets us up for the opening of End Game with the post credit extra. Stay for it, it'll make her intro to the second part of that conflict make a whole lot more sense. Also, this movie explains how the Avengers began, along with how Nick became so furious.
