Captain Marvel

My latest movie rental was Captain Marvel ...

a 2019 American superhero film based on the Marvel Comics character Carol Danvers .... Brie Larson stars as Danvers, alongside Samuel L. Jackson, Ben Mendelsohn, Djimon Hounsou, Lee Pace, Lashana Lynch, Gemma Chan, Annette Bening, Clark Gregg, and Jude Law. Set in 1995, the story follows Danvers as she becomes Captain Marvel after Earth is caught in the center of a galactic conflict between two alien civilizations.

The movie was pretty fun and answered some questions, like how did Nick Fury lose his eye? The film comes between the last two Avengers movies and Captain Marvel figures into the last film, Endgame (which I haven't seen yet). It's probable that you need to be acquainted with the whole Avengers/Agents of Shield storyline to appreciate Captain Marvel, but maybe I'm wrong.

One of the interesting things about the movie was the inclusion of songs from the 90s. Here's the final song that comes with the end credits of the film, by the band of the wife of the late Kurt Cobain ...
