I already got tix for Sat, 3/9. But just realized only 2D option. Is this not going to be shown in 3D? Haven’t most Marvel movies been shown converted to 3D in theaters?

I haven't bought mine yet, but i just checked and 3D is an option here, so yes, it was converted and is being screened in 3D.

Got a solo ticket for Thursday evening and then tickets for me, my son, and a friend in 3d on Sunday. Speaking of 3d it’s strange. On Sunday there’s like 20 2d showings and just a single 3d showing.

Seeing this Thursday night. Really looking forward to it. And I'll be sure to hang out for the post credits scenes. Hopefully one of them is a teaser for Endgame.

Re: Captain Marvel (Boden/Fleck, 2019) — The Spoiler Filled Reviews Thread

It's up to 85% on Rottentomatoes with 101 Reviews: https://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/captain_marvel

Sounds like it's more Ant-man than Captain America, and I'm just fine with that

That metacritic score places the movie on par with Avengers: Infinity War, and slightly above The Incredible Hulk, Thor, Thor 2, Iron Man 2, Iron Man 3, Avengers: Age of Ultron, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2, Ant-man, Captain America: First Avenger

Re: Captain Marvel (Boden/Fleck, 2019) — The Spoiler Filled Reviews Thread

I know that the movie currently has a very solid/respectable 84% on RT, but reading the little blurbs from the critics makes it seem like it's kind of "meh"

I have no idea how Rotten Tomatoes works. I've seen a 2/4 review rated Fresh and a 2.5/4 review rated Rotten. There's a C+ rated Rotten, and a 60% rated Fresh.

Probably a scene from Endgame where she introduces herself to the team in some kind of dramatic entrance. The other scene is probably a joke with space cat.
Wondering if they stayed to close to the Marvel movie mold (take no chances) with this one?

A Marvel guy I work with went to a screening last night with a bunch of other Marvel fans and he said it was "ok". He said it didn't blow him away...but at least he didn't leave angry like he did with recent Star Wars films...and he was glad there was not too much "Rah! Rah! Girl Power!" stuff in it.


I was was kinda surprised he gave that luke warm review and I'm sure it's better than "ok".

Re: Captain Marvel (Boden/Fleck, 2019) — The Spoiler Filled Reviews Thread

Just saw this yesterday....


Spoilers..........



Probably one of the better inaugural MCU movies. It felt a little different and less connected to the other Marvel movies. Nice tribute to Stan Lee in the opening credits. His cameo was pretty small. You could barely see his face but he gets to say one of his famous catchphrases. I found it odd that Nick Fury would just happen to be in the area and could show up within minutes of when Captain Marvel appears on Earth and show up at the right place in other scenes. Lots of 1990's technology and cultural jokes. Gives the origin of Nick Fury's eye condition. I thought the Skrulls would be the villains in the movie. Still don't know what the hell the cat was supposed to be.
