[NO SPOILERS] Black Panther
« on: February 16, 2018, 12:06:26 AM »
Just came from Black Panther, really enjoyed it.  On par with Marvel's films of late, very enjoyable, lots of action, good characters, incredible visuals, continuity, all that.

I'd give it a solid A grade, not quite an A+ as it felt like I knew where we were going at times, though the journey was fully enjoyable.  Definitely worth it IMO.

There's two scenes at the end after the credits roll, but nothing jaw-dropping.

Oh, and there was a trailer for Solo, which comes out in May.  Looks great, definitely going to check out the prequel/origin for Han, heh.

I agree with your assessments; saw it last night as well. It's definitely in my top 10 superhero movies for sure.

9.5/10, would see again.

When it was over, I wasn't completely sold on the film. I had only seen the trailers for it and nothing more, so the departure from the usual Marvel films caught me off guard. Now that I've been able to sleep on it, I can agree it was a great film. Good story beats that had substance behind them. The antagonist had motive that you could believe but a route that you wouldn't agree with. I would recommend anyone to go see this film. It addresses issues that society faces today, and I feel has something that can change the Marvel Universe going forward.

Best moment(non spoiler):
Taking onevof the most sterotypically racist characters in the history of Marvel Comics and making him a bonafide BADASS
