Loved the change to the Marvel Studios company logo at the start, with it being all shots of Stan Lee.
Brie Larson was awesome, SLJ was hilarious. Baby Coulson!
I really liked how it so effortlessly stitched together the more cosmic MCU with the more Earthbound MCU, and how along the way, they really shaded in some of the backstory for the 'state of the galaxy' as we were introduced to it in Guardians of the Galaxy.
Appreciated the Skrulls twist, particularly because I've seen a few sites out there loudly pontificating on how the Skrulls are the next Thanos.
Rambeau didn't really do anything for me. She seemed to be there only as a means for Carol to remember her past, but once that was done seemed to have nothing at all to contribute to the plot.
Soundtrack was pretty awesome, I'm surprised that Marvel isn't pushing it a bit harder a la Guardians.
Enjoyed that her callsign is now so important to the MCU lore.
Still slightly thrown by the timeline here... The film is set in 1995 and seems to imminently set up both the Phase One movies and where we start in Guardians. Except....Iron Man 1 isn't till 2008 (2010 if you prefer the "official," riddled-with-errors Marvel timeline) and Guardians is set in 2014. So....it took Fury 13(/15) years after this to find another hero, and it took Carol 19 years to beat the Kree?
I was rolling my eyes harrrrrrrd at an idiot sitting right behind me at the theatre. As the credits started rolling (so people were okay to talk), he starts insisting to his friends "oh my god, that must be a second Tesseract! Because SHIELD has the Tesseract from WW2 until The Avengers and this is in the 80s, so this must be a second Tesseract!" and refusing to hear anybody tell him why he was wrong (on either point).
And then chills at the post-Infinity War teaser.
