Black Panther Rules

Without trying to ruin it, it was amazing! This was decent picture of me watching the film:

I mean…holy crap! I’ve never been…so proud as I have been watching this film. Seeing someone who looks like me, someone who has the same skin tone, and same hair texture like my kicking ass just as much as the white superheroes. Some of them didn’t even HAVE superpowers!

I have NEVER watched Danai Gurira in “The Walking Dead” (I don’t like Zombie movies/tv shows) and from what I heard about her in the show, she was awesome. So I wasn’t surprised…until I saw in the film… What have I been missing?! She incredible as Okeye! Ho-ly crap! The gif above pales in comparison as how she fights in the film! Ugh! I wanted to get back in Kung Fu class again! But I gotta strengthen my herniated back …but dude I wanted to take Kung Fu class again.

Then Lupita Nyongo’….yes…you can look fabulous AND kick ass! She a great actress in most films I’ve seen, but to see how she can fight is amazing. A-MAZ-ING!

Then seeing Letitia Wright make her debut here as Shuri…oh, man! I loved her. Her character was so funny and so brilliant! Again, I wanna say HOW awesome she is, but…I don’t know wanna ruin it for you. But you know what I loved the chemistry between Chadwick Boseman as  T’Challa  and Shuri as brother and sister, will remind you have with your siblings or even the ones that are like brother and sister to you.

The chemistry with cast and even the story line were great! I felt compared to most movies of today, there is so MUCH CGI and “bang, boom!” now days, you forget that movies need a compelling cast and story as you NEED special effects. Especially when they’re superheroes and they much like ourselves have to embrace or they even struggle with their own humanity and weaknesses in order to protect those they love against a great threat. And I felt this movie touched on it very well in addition to you don’t need superpowers to be SUPER.

The Black Panther film has already amassed $111.7 million in sales. See that Hollywood? Yes, black films CAN sell. Minority films CAN sell. There are viewers who want to see people of color on films that represent US. That we’re not just the sidekicks, the funny guy, the best friend, the smart one, the thugs…we can play other roles too and still win hearts and of course, the box office.

If you haven’t seen it yet, I suggest you and I promise you’ll have a “roaring” good time.
