Just back from a noon showing and there was a fair number of punters. Usually I have the entire cheap seats to myself. Pretty good MCU movie (so top end of 4*). Shuri was the standout character for me.

Hah hah, what can I say, I know what I like!

Very happy to agree to disagree, which is my philosophy in running this site; there's no right or wrong opinion, just opinion. Which brings me back to critical analysis by people who's jobs are to critically analyse. Screw 'em, I'm making up my own mind.

Anyway, Black Panther, good film, short on action. 357/416

I liked Black Panther. It didn't quite break through from great to excellent but it also didn't put a foot wrong.

Lots of very strong, well drawn characters. Chemistry in abundance throughout the cast.

I did go in expecting to see the last Infinity Stone. I don't think it is a spoiler to say that didn't happen. So, really intrigued to see if it is where the Infinity War trailer implies it is implying.

I will definitely see this again. Got to take the kids and my friend's one cinema trip a quarter is due.

Saw it. Liked it. Definitely up there as one of the best Marvel films, although there are a few ahead of it for me. For the target demographic, it will probably be their top. It doesn't shy away from social commentary and real world politics. Although as a total outsider looking in, it does seem to be an African American wish fulfillment, involving an essentially USA conversation of Martin Luther King worldview v Malcolm X worldview imposed upon a the continent of Africa, while not really showing the real Africa. Like the plastic Ireland that the Irish Americans see, this is the plastic Africa. But then Black Panther has always walked that line. And boy, this is a fine adaptation.

James Bond meets the Lion King with a smidgen of Rocky III? thrown in. With a wish to be Return of the King.

It looked spectacular. The cast were uniformly excellent. And one of the better Marvel antagonists.

And one complaint, was maybe it could have been longer. I would not have minded more politics with the various council members and their tribes both before and after Kilmonger's arrival.

Finally saw this over the weekend.

Whilst it was a great film and a worth addition to the Marvel Universe I thought it was all very obvious as to what was going to happen. Didn't distract from my enjoyment and it moved along at a good pace but I'm not sure it'll get many re-watches.

I also thought the final battle with the Rhino's etc. was very similar to the ground battle of Naboo from SW:TPM.

Heh, if you thought THAT was similar, just wait until the 3rd act of Infinity War.

:lol:
