A physical copy of “CaptainMarvel” is available as either a 4K Cinematic Universe Edition (4K UHD+Blu-ray+Digital Copy) or a Multi-Screen Edition (Blu-ray+Digital Copy), granting fans the flexibility to watch on devices of their choice. 


If you have a superhero, Marvel fan in your house, as I do, they might just love Captain Marvel. My oldest has seen every MCU movie and read several comic books so to say that he was excited to see Captain Marvel is an understatement. 

Brie Larson did great as Captain Marvel/Carol Danvers and in all honesty, I was surprised how well she actually did. Samuel L. Jackson as a Nick Fury does well in everything he does and this is no different! Goose the cat was the star of the show as far as my youngest was concerned, lol. She probably could have just watched a whole movie about that! As for me, I have to be honest, I rarely see commercials so I was highly surprised but pleased to see Annette Benning. She’s amazing in whatever she does, and this was no different. 


Now, I had heard bad reviews, including bad acting and have to say I disagree. Mind you, this is coming from someone that is not a superhero, MCU fan…at all. Not even a little. I think that says a lot. Of course, my superhero fan loved it! 

I will say there were some slow parts. I find that an issue with Marvel movies. At 2 hours and 5 minutes, it could have used some editing. 

Now, what I will say is we needed more superhero women for female power and glad this came out. Wonder Woman is great but how many superhero guys are there? a lot. Carol Danvers may have originated back in 1968 but only in comics. I love showing positive female role models to the girls and this did that for me. We discussed her strength and courage and why they need to have strength and courage as well. 

For anyone needing to see where she fits in, MCU did a great job of showing how she fits in the MCU timeline. This is especially important for someone like me that doesn’t watch any MCU. Sure, I could have enjoyed the movie without it but it gave context. 

Overall, we all enjoyed this movie (even me, the non-fan lol). They enjoyed it enough to have already watched it again. That says a lot!

If you buy Captain Marvel, that comes out on DVD Tuesday (6/11/2019), let me know your thoughts. Do you have girls? Do you like to show female empowerment, strength, courage, etc?
