Captain Marvel is a 2019 American superhero film based on the Marvel Comics character Carol Danvers. Produced by Marvel Studios and distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures, it is the twenty-first film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). The film is written and directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, with Geneva Robertson-Dworet also contributing to the screenplay.
Captain Marvel did amazing at the box office no matter if certain fan boys didn’t like it. I thourougly enjoyed the film and while its not in my top 5 of Marvel films it may be in my top 10 and is most certainly in my top half. Brie Larson did a great job as Vers and to this day I’m still trying to understand the gripe that people are having with Captain Marvel. As most of it seems to come from the character. Was she too powerful? Perhaps, but it was handled well enough in Endgame. Is she not as pretty on the eyes as people expected and did they want the more scantly clad Captain Marvel from the comics of the 80’s? I’m not quite sure. I felt the movie was strong enough and had great layers of comedy and while the take on the 90’s was nice it could have been a tad bit better as while it had great nods it felt it lacked a little bit of heart with the musical choices tho they were far from horrible.
Captain Marvel comes to Ultra HD Blu-ray 4K with a wonderful picture with much of the film being filmed in 6.5K or 8K with Arri Alexa 65, Red Weapon, and Panavision Millennium cameras with Panavision Sphero lenses. With HDR the film looks great, with deep rich darks and bright hues. Hopefully in the future we can see some more Dolby Vision Disney Marvel releases but this one still looks great none the less.
Captain Marvel comes to Ultra HD Blu-ray 4K with a Dolby Atmos audio track that soars higher, further, faster. See what I did there? My home theater system rocked with great clarity and wonderful usage of the bass.
