              The movie is set in June 1995 as evidenced by a calendar that appears next to Fury's head in one scene, however several scenes contain pop culture references to things that are out of place. In the Block Buster scene a copy of the film First Knight can be seen however this would not be released in cinemas until July of that year. The song "Only Happy when it Rains" by Garbage is heard playing on a pub jukebox although the song would not be released until August 1995 on Garbage's self-titled album and as a single the following month. A poster can be seen for the album Melon Collie and the Infinite Sadness by The Smashing Pumpkins which would not finish recording until August 1995 and not be released until October. The operating system Windows 95 in the audio CD scene was released August 24, 1995. See more »

              Really wanted to like it more, it's just ok
              18 March 2019 | by vithietSee all my reviews

              So I was hoping this would be a great movie and I could write a review telling misogynists to shut up because it's fantastic to have a strong female superhero as a lead character. Alas, in that regard Wonder Woman did a lot better as a movie as a whole. The acting is not that great between Brie Larson's poor performance and the prosthetic/GCI on Samuel L. Jackson that makes him look younger but also gives him an expressionless wooden appearance. There are very obvious plot holes (like, wait, how did they know to do that?) and the pacing is very uneven; there are a few parts during which I didn't feel engaged at all. On the plus side it does fairly well as an origin story, and there is that Marvel level of polish in special effects and editing. All in all, it might be a necessary introduction to Captain Marvel for Avengers End Game, but it is probably the weakest MCU movie to date.
