Captain Marvel 

Uh Captain Marvel was fantastic. I thought I heard some people didn’t like it?

Why?

Captain Marvel 

@levi here's how my friend put it in response to another friend.

Captain Marvel 

@Brandon_B @levi Ah yes. This is the sort of thing that makes me happy to have finally sworn off online fandom. I didn't even realize the extent of the coordinated hate cycle for CM, but color me unsurprised. Dollars to donuts if you polled the dudes who spammed RT audience reviews for CM, they're the same ones who did it for The Last Jedi ... and subsequently made it impossible to have an honest convo about the film on Twitter. 🤦‍♀️

@equustel @Brandon_B I bet there is significant overlap :)

Captain Marvel 

@Brandon_B Ah got it. I wondered if there were legitimate critiques or if it was more of the white dude fandom shrieking at it.

Captain Marvel 

@levi I liked it as a movie. Its timing was kind of unfortunate, b/c after the emotional stakes of Infinity War and the build up to End Game, both Captain Marvel and Ant Man and the Wasp feel like an M&M when I really want the whole chocolate cake.

Captain Marvel 

@TrelaH totally get that. I was able to suspend disbelief there a bit only because it was essentially a flashback movie. And I thought there was enough emotional connection (themes around war/family, etc) to still make it feel weighty.
