A new film hit the shelves recently, and do you know what that means? It means we have a new Honest Trailer to feast our eyes over. This time around, the folks over at Screen Junkies have it out for Captain Marvel, the billion-dollar grosser that managed to incite countless online crybabies for months on end. Though, of course, like any other film, it ain’t quite perfect, and the YouTubers are more than happy to poke and prod at it.
For starters, they take a hit at Carol Danvers’ personality, or lack thereof. While everyone in the movie chides her for getting too emotional, outside of a few snarky remarks, we don’t really see her lose her composure…like ever (except for that one moment she roared at a Skrull).

Perhaps the most obvious thing to poke fun at here has to do with its ’90s references. And as fun as all those Game Boy, Trolls, Mallrats, Blockbuster, and Altavista references were, there’s no doubt that they felt just a little bit forced (then again, would they have felt forced if we didn’t recognize them as obvious ’90s objects? We’ll have to check back in in 50 years).
And if you were totally ready to hate on it for all its shortcomings, the video is quick to point out that it’s a solid watch when compared to the other origins stories the MCU has to offer.
