A Movie Review by Cole: Captain Marvel

Captain Marvel. What is one word I can use to describe this film? The word “impressive” comes to mind. The visuals, the story, characters, all are impressive. The character of Captain Marvel is the newest and perhaps most powerful addition to the Avengers, and her story is one of the most unique.

The “Shutdown”

One of the most difficult things for McKenna and I to deal with regarding my Asperger’s is the act of “shutting down”. All people have some kind of coping mechanism for stress, whether it’s turning to a material distraction, engaging in some sort of risky behavior, or seeking isolation.
