(at around 1h 16 mins) Monica chides her mother for not wanting to fly a suicide mission against a technically more advanced alien force, asking if she'd prefer to stay home and watch The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air (1990). The title character of Fresh Prince is played by Will Smith who, as Captain Hiller in Independence Day (1996), would fly a suicide mission against a technically advanced alien force. Once Monica helps Carol to redesign her uniform, she describes Carol's new look as "Fresh." Independence Day also starred Jeff Goldblum, who appears as the Grand Master in Thor: Ragnarok (2017).

I live in Indonesia, and I've just seen it since it aired today. The action scenes are good, the de-aging of early SHIELD Agents are great. I can't really notice in seeing Fury. That's it. Those are the good things about this movie. Brie Larson comes off as snobbish when she quips like Tony Stark, but became boring and unlikeable the more she does it. There are moments in the action scenes when it's all CGI that looks like it came from a PS3 game. Comedy is sub-par. Worth of nose exhale at least.
To quote Laura Clifford, "Captain Marvel is a boring mishmash of ideas from a score of other movies and franchises".
