  • Captain Marvel

    Captain Marvel

    ★★★

    The National Film Registry contains films "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant". 2/3 ain't bad, and Captain Marvel might just make it.

    Or as put so well by a fellow letterboxer (letterboxder?):

    "...this could have been so much better, but you know what? Women are allowed to make and be the subject of fairly mediocre big budget studio films and have them be successful too." -- letterboxd.com/jenniferv

    ★★★

    ---excerpt from the transcript of "Making of SWTLJ"---
    Kathleen Kennedy(producer): "Ooo, how about we have Luke squeeze green milk out of a loch ness monster teat"
    Rian Johnson(director/writer): "Yes marm"
    Kathleen: "It has to be GREEN"
    Rian: "Yes marm"
    Kathleen: "BTW how many 3rd acts do we have right now?"
    Rian: "Just the one, marm"
    Kathleen: "Could you just sprinkle in 3-4 more, pls?"
    Rian: "Surely, marm"
