As Carol Danvers walks through the Pancho's Bar, she's hit with a swarm of memories in front of her, including one quick shot of her celebrating after winning a round on the Street Fighter II arcade game. The Street Fighter II arcade cabinet wasn't released until 1991, two years after Carol was believed to be dead. By the time Street Fighter II was released, Carol would have already been part of Starforce and therefore unable to play the game in the years before then. In fact, the cabinet shown in Captain Marvel is Street Fighter II: Champion Edition, which wasn't released until 1992.
This is incorrectly regarded as a goof. If you watch closely, you'll see that the memory is actually of her playing a pinball machine, Stern's Flight 2000, which you can see the marquee of around her head. In addition you can see the ghost of the actual machine, and that her stance and hands are correct to be playing the pinball machine, not Street Fighter. (38:32-38:34 in the film) The Red carpet premiere on marvel.com shows a promotional still at 1:06:39 of Bree in costume playing Stern's Flight, which you can compare the marquee and machine ghost in the film to.

No one's going to hurt the girl. Just, don't kill me. We got a really complicated situation.
I'm about five seconds from complicating that wall with some ugly-ass Skrull brains.

Much like Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017) and Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (2018), The title doesn't appear on screen until the end. See more »
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".
