I know that several of you out there have kids and you are not sure if you should take them to see certain movies. Well you are in luck because I have a 10 year old daughter that I love taking to the movies and she is here to answer all of your kid movie questions. Here is Emma, answering a series of questions about Captain Marvel, which I took her to on a Monday afternoon.
Did you like the movie? Yes, I did because she is awesome!
What was your favorite part? All of the flashbacks she has because she is learning about herself more and where she came from. It was neat to learn about her backstory that way.
Who was your favorite character? Captain Marvel was!! Because she is super cool and kicks a lot of butt cheeks into space.
What about the other characters? How did you feel about young Nick Fury and Goose the kitty? I like that we find out about Nick’s eye and now I’m scared of cats because what if they can really eat you and we don’t know about it.
After seeing Black Panther, who had very strong female characters, and now Captain Marvel with very strong female characters, how does that make you feel seeing yourself represented finally in comic book movies? They have always been strong in comic books, not just these two movies, and I read a bunch of those comics. I have a lot of comics now with like She-Hulk and Raven and Starfire that I read and love.
That’s a pretty awesome point of view.
What is your favorite Marvel movie so far? Infinity War!!!
What do you think Captain Marvel is going to do in Endgame? She’s going to beat Thanos by herself because she is so much better than him.
What boys do you like at school? Give me specific names. Nobody.
I don’t believe you, give me a name? There is nobody, quit picking on me.
This 6 weeks just ended, would you like to tell the people what awards you got? A honor roll and perfect attendance.
I’m very proud of you.
Do your friends think you are super cool because you are going to be on a movie podcast in a couple of weeks? No.
I love you. I know.
