In the second and final bonus scene after the credits, when Goose the cat pukes up the Tesseract like a hairball on Fury's desk the CRT computer monitor and keyboard are black, vs the earlier vintage computers that were all beige. This showed the audience that the story had jumped forward several years from 1995 to somewhere in the 2000-2005 era when black or gray were the predominant colors of PC hardware, but before the transition to LCD's.

The fight on the LA Metro light rail starts near the Douglas station in El Segundo, SE of Los Angeles International Airport. This is part of the Green Line which runs East-West. The fight concludes on a train headed into a tunnel--this is part of the Blue Line which runs North-South--and ends at the 7th St/Metro station in downtown Los Angeles. To get from the Green Line to the Blue Line, one must transfer at the Willowbrook/Rosa Parks station in Compton/Watts. The travel time is also grossly compressed; in reality it would take well over half an hour to get from Douglas to 7th/Metro. The exterior of the station where Carol exits also doesn't match; it is the Civic Center station, which would involve another transfer onto the Red Line from where she got off the train. See more »

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.
