Two weeks ago I ordered tickets for the boys and I to go see Black Panther. My boys are big-time superhero fanatics. They love to watch anything with superheroes like movies, cartoons, the CW series of Supergirl, Flash, and Arrow and even Netflix originals Luke Cage, Jessica Jones, Iron Fist, and the Defenders. So naturally, when we heard there was going to be a Black Panther movie, we had to go. I ordered my tickets two weeks in advance and everything. We went and bought our own snacks because well I have two boys who eat like 10 grown men and the little concession stand snacks were not going to do it especially with those steep prices. Plus I’m on a Detox Water Challenge so I had to bring my water with me. No slushies for me this time. Anywho we made a day out of it and it was awesome.
Since Black Panther was first introduced in the Civil War movie I have been excited. I must say I absolutely love the actor chosen for the role. Chadwick Boseman really played the hell out of that role. I can’t think of anyone else who would have done a better job. Actually, all the actors did their thing in this movie. Micheal B. Jordan as Erik Killmonger was the villain you hated but couldn’t help to love. Oh and I most definitely can’t forget my three favorites in the movie Lupita Nyong’o as Nakia, Danai Gurira as Okoye, and Letitia Wright as Suri. Those three really made to movie Black Panther amazing. There’s this saying I always hear about “Behind every successful man there is a strong woman”. In this case, Black Panther had three Strong Black women.
The action in this movie was everything I expected and then some. Graphics were out of this world and the storyline was everything. There were great lessons for everyone both young and old, black and white to take from this movie. Lessons about family, culture, traditions, fatherhood, righting the wrongs, growing up, oppression and unity stuck out to me the most. This movie showed a positive light on black culture. I must say I have never been more proud of a movie in my life. This movie was a breath of fresh air from the usual representation of blacks in Black movies and it was a perfect time to release it during Black History month. I believe this was the best Marvel movie yet. Actually, the best superhero movie of all time. All in all this movie was excellent and I encourage everyone of all ages, race, and sex to go out and see this movie.
