Well, between the health stuff, company merger, and daylight’s savings time, my plans today were put in peril. But I will persevere!
Mini Movie Review
Captain Marvel – Depending on who you are and how deep you are in comic book fandom will make a HUGE difference on what you’ll think about this film. It’s a popcorn flick, entertaining with a lot of cute moments. As long as you don’t look below the surface, it’s enjoyable. Seeing a young Coulson totally did it for me. 😛 I thought Brie Larson did a great job. There’s been a lot of flack about her not being able to act, but I didn’t see that. If anything, I have to give her kudos for not just acting with words and expressions but her whole body. Carol Danvers’ confident and easy attitude screams from the character just by how she walks down a corridor after the first escape.
While the errors regarding canon are many and various, some of the other problems were just lazy. For example, the Skrull Talos spoke like some punk out of the ’80s and ’90s when, if you take into account the timeline as presented, he had not yet spent much if any time on Earth. (If he had, there would have been several critical bits of information he would have already known about and therefore made the movie moot!). Another big one was with regards to the Kree. All Kree have blue skin, and all the movies and TV shows have presented them that way. The only exception is sometimes some have patches of pure white skin (which makes them looked down on). Rather than try to come up with a plausible reason to tell Carol why her skin was different, they just turned half the Kree population Caucasian. Lazy.
If you can ignore stuff like that, you should enjoy the film. It had a nice pace, cool effects, excellent combat sequences, and Goose. I did love that they let the Skrulls have their super funky chins. Rating: 3.25 out of 4 (Hubby’s Rating: Worth Full Price of Admission.)
Virtual Tourist – GRIS
The gardens are a wonderful area. It is also where you pick up the ability to SING!
Singing affects things and is also visual. The rings you see here are from her voice. It also makes flowers bloom!
Love the luscious colors.
The unknown. Look a the gorgeous pastels!
An underwater hallway in the gardens. You can’t sing as a fish.
The bush is made of water, so I can swim in it. The yellow line flips the gravity. Gliding past the top drops you up to the floor/ceiling of the other side. Lol.
I love the colors, the implied textures, even the depths.
A half inverted area and major singing spot.
The star path to the meeting the tortured self.
It is just darn pretty!
Hope you’ve been staying warm out there. Winter is still trying to hang on, but it is a losing battle. 😛
