Captain Marvel: Enjoyable Sci-Fi Mixes Thrills and Empowerment

3.8 out of 5 stars (highly above average)

The lead-up to Captain Marvel has been a rocky one.  Sexist internet trolls, laughable trailer complaints, and the fear of Marvel getting “woke” surrounded this film and caused some to overanalyze it till the cows come home.  In my opinion, Captain Marvel is a fun and funny popcorn movie that can empower men, women, and space aliens to become the best version of themselves and still have friends in their corner.  Add good performances, astounding visuals, and a spunky lead character, and Captain Marvel stands as a shining example of how to combine empowerment with entertainment.

The Crimes of Grindelwald: Potter Prequel Only Steals Time, Disrespects Legacy

2 out of 5 stars (Has Some Good Moments, But Is Overall Bad)

The Harry Potter series is one of the most successful and respected fantasy epics of our time.  J.K. Rowling captivated both readers and audiences with her story of a young boy who discovers the existence of magic and ultimately must fight to save it.  Despite an understandably mixed reaction from book purists, I believe the films are entertaining on their own merits.  They aren’t all perfect, but the good far outweighs the bad.
