Captain Marvel: The Problem With The Skrull Twist

Captain Marvel is an alright film. It entertains with funny jokes and pretty visuals like most Marvel movies do, but it has a lot of problems. Chief among these problems is the characterization, or lack thereof, of the titular hero, but as criminally underdeveloped as protagonist Carol Danvers is, what interested me most about Captain Marvel were its main villains, the shapeshifters known as the Skrull.

Aquaman is Another Nail in DC’s Coffin

Aquaman is visually impressive, but there is nothing beneath the surface of this movie. When the script for Aquaman was being drafted, I honestly believe that the writers challenged themselves to create the most generic, tropey, cookie-cutter, formulaic superhero movie that they could dream up. And oh boy, did they succeed at that challenge.
