    It was a good movie, no huge complaints with it. Don’t think it’s the greatest marvel movie ever made as I’ve seen some people suggest online.

    Good fun movie though.

    So saw it today. I enjoyed it, thought IMHO not up there with the top marvel movies which are again IMHO civil war, avengers, ant man, one of the iron mans etc. For abbreivation purposes, Black Panther or King T'Challa will be referred to as BP.

    Trailers shown included Solo, and player one ready.

    Themes:
    Colonisation
    Foreigners
    Refugees - when the tribal council discussed allowing The Hobbits Martin Freeman to stay, or maybe it was earlier and related to another character, one of them said refugees bring in their own problems
    Us vs them
    Technology/weapons for good or evil
    Civil war

    Pros:
    The colour (not just black), costumes juxtaposed with the tribal colours. The ochre of the sand penetrating the grey cliffs, clear water....the crisp coolness of the white clean snow, and the bright LEDs of the city.
    Cool technology, weapons
    Differing tribes, how they dress and their weapons.
    M'Baku stole the show
    Dancing, movements during the challenges (shoulder shrugs)
    Kinetic energy transfer of BPs suit.
    Fight scenes between the traitors and BPs mates. The Just In Time arrival of MBaku was scripted and foreshadowed. But good never the less.

    Cons:
    With the chase scene in Korea, use of a Korean car would've been good instead of a japanese model. i.e. Kia.
    I felt BPs accent was particularly strong in the beginning, but started to waver towards the end. In fact for mine the accents of all Africans was really strong at the start. OK, not a con per se, an observation
    Someone told me that M B Jordan was good. Dunno, just felt the way he was speaking was somewhat OTT.

    Miscellaneous
    BP learned to love again.

    Yeah, solid movie without being great. The CGI seemed off for me, the jokes early on fell flat, but the performances were good, the villain's motivation was excellent.

    Agree with the thoughts on Jordan. Thought he was played really well until he showed up in wakanda and then he just seemed to push it too OTT and felt really out of place.

    I really wanted Jordan to stay alive for a redemption arch , you could really understand his motivation and would had been good to develop him further .

    Thanks Hawks. It was almost parody like. For example the token black guy in the spoof movies that were popular in the 90s. The way he spoke to the Wakandians was all "yo! you got job ta do! That don't mean shit". Wakandians be like "huh?"

    I though it was done that way to show the clear distinct difference between the two cultures, and to demonstrate where his anger was coming from .

    He was from the mean streets of Oakland. Everybody else was from the Wakanda elite.

    They put him under until a cure could be found for his brainwashing. I think this just means it’s been found. He’s needed for Avengers.

    U know what, after seeing the post credits stuff I actualy honestly forgot about the civil war post credits stuff.....bucky handed over to wakandians for brain washing. And then i didnt remember capt USA breaking his mates out of that underwater jail. Seriously.

    Also, Anja, guess people refer to you as A Ness?

    Would you assume with their sophisticated tech that they have access to TV and modern pop culture?

    Wakanda would be a powerhouse in international football, if they entered.

    Thought it was good and enjoyable. But all of the ratings are over the top (not in here, but in general)
