As you read this, I hope that you’re having a lot of fun, but as I *write* it, I’m preparing to go on a family outing to see ‘Captain Marvel.’  (I’ll do the same when ‘Shazam’ comes out, just because I want to be the nerd who reminds people that the Big Red Cheese used to be Captain Marvel.)  The last time we absolutely had to do this was for ‘Love, Simon’, at the behest of the Widget, but it’s a relatively rare experience that everyone in the house wants to see the same thing, leading to today’s Kree/Skrull query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) reminds Faithful Spoilerites that a big bunch of your friends also counts as family for MS-QOTD purposes, asking: What’s the last pop culture experience that demanded a family outing?

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.

    Honestly, I don’t think there’s been one in 15 years. Not a huge movie goer, so there’s that too. But I DID see Captain Marvel yesterday. It was pretty good, I think in better half of Marvel movies.

  2. My teenager treated us all to see How To Train Your Dragon 3 as a family. He’s big into movies right now, but it’s usually just him and his brother on $5 Tuesday’s, but once in a while, he gets everyone to go with him. (Of course, for Dragon, he didn’t warn me I’d need tissues and his poor little brother was just sobbing, so family outing that one at your own risk of your kids seeing you sniffle!)
