Happy International Women’s Day! What are you doing to celebrate? If you are a fan of Sheroes then I totally recommend seeing Captain Marvel. The teen and I attended an advance screening on Tuesday, and today the movie it out in theaters.
CAPTAIN MARVEL PROVES WHY EVERYONE NEEDS A DOPE, BLACK GIRLFRIEND!
Lashana Lynch plays Maria Rambeau is an Air Force fighter pilot, and Carol Danvers’ (Brie Larson) best friend. I know her characters last name is not by mistake. Their friendship is the best story in this movie, it is true to the friendships I have with my girls. You can be apart for years and when you get back together you pick up right where you left off. I can’t recall a movie that shows the depth of our friendships in this way. More than that it shows what is like to have a black woman as a friend. Our friendships are not the same as others, they just aren’t.
5 REASONS WHY YOU NEED A DOPE, BLACK GIRLFRIEND!
REASON #1: We are loyal AF and always have your back. There is NOTHING we can’t figure out, we are likely the most resourceful person you will come in contact with.
REASON #2: We will check you when you are wrong and still ride for you. We don’t have time for the BS so we are going to let you know where we stand while still loving you as a friend.
REASON #3: We are magical AF, and our talents are unmatched. We are resilient and strong and creative AF. You already know this, everyone loves to rip off our hairstyles, our looks, and our vernacular. Why? Because there is no other creature like US.
REASON #4: We are chameleons not just in our looks, but we adapt to any situation. We’ve been through some thangs and we always bounce back.
REASON #5: We are the worlds best fixers and everyone knows it. While this is a quality we possess we are often exhausted by shouldering the world on our shoulders. Either way, just know that we can and will when needed.
The Man-Child is a real Marvel fan so here is his perspective:
It was a funny movie, the CGI [computer generated imagery] and fight scenes were on point. The storyline was a little confusing in the beginning due to flashbacks, it threw me off a little bit. Once I thought about it I finally understood everything, and how it tied into all the other Marvel movies. I don’t have a favorite Marvel movie, but I feel like this might be one of the best ones. I was really entertained by this movie, and I’ve seen all of the Marvel movies. After watching I better understood how some of the other Marvel movies came to be, as in how it ties into the over Marvel storyline. I recommend going to see it now, you need to see Captain Marvel if you want to see and understand the new Avengers: End Game coming out. STAY FOR THE POST CREDIT SCENES. I think this movie is good for kids in the double digits. Captain Marvel, it is more family friendly than past Avengers movies.
We had a great Mother and Son night out seeing Captain Marvel. I gave you my perspective and he gave you his. Now go see the movie for yourself and let me know what you think.
