2009 bbc version >>>>
surprisingly this was quite delicately handled for the subject material, and it's clearly made with a lot of love from both the performers and the creative team. definitely see this one becoming a ~cult musical of sorts, can't say the songs + lyrics were super well written (though they served the purpose well / were occasionally fun and catchy!! 'thriller in manilla' lol)
honestly can't believe how this has become the epitome of marvel's laziness and absolute zero effort filmmaking: there's little surprises in storytelling, the action sequences feel like they're cut on autopilot, oscar-winning™ brie larson is ~just fine~, and the wink-wink-nods-nods at female stereotypes/male condescension ("you should smile more!!" "don't be emotional!!") are mere throwaway one liners to collect kudos. it's a shame that this one had to be the one with all the "firsts", but i wish they focused on the ~human~ aspect of captain marvel, over her glowy superpowers that really just become silly and inane.
