Who has viewed it? How good is it? Does he possess Cat like quickness?
Probably wait until it comes on Netflix. It’s got great critic reviews but only at 7.6 on IMDB from fans.
Is this the new blaxploitation? I think the stuff from the 70's is much better.
no interest what so ever.
The way it's been described, it seems an effects-filled infomercial for BLM ... or maybe Marvel's take on Roots.
I've heard it described more like a cross between "Coming to America" and "Avatar."
I have as much interest in this movie, as I did Green Eco Lantern, Tinfoil Man 12, Wonder Person, Ant Lives Matter Man, and any Batman movie that doesn't feature Christian Bale. Which is to say...
I’ll see it when it hits Kodi, but I have no plans to pay and sit in a theater to be preached to.
i got my jail broken fire stick. how do i find a pay per view mma event?
Google the best apps for that. I used to use SportsDevil for football (broke down and purchased Sunday Ticket last season because the quality and signal is iffy). I’m not sure if that’s the best for MMA though. Google will likely have more helpful recommendations.

It’s just like you said in the other thread: the white critics won’t dare give it a bad review lest they be labeled as RACISTSSSSSSSSS.
My daughter and a friend wanted to see it Sunday, but all show were sold out (this is in the Midwest). I asked her to tell me if she likes it when she sees it. Her critique will be from her perspective. Although, it will not be biased against race.
Will it be biased FOR race? Because that's what's going on. Black celebrities across the country are buying out entire theaters for free screenings to black kids.

This is being seen not only as a super hero movie but as a racial empowerment cultural statement. (I'm wondering if the bad guys Black Panther does battle with are white folks.) If your daughter's review is objective and not from a young person's SJW perspective, it will be interesting to know about.
For anyone familiar with the comic, was that written from a racial, “commentary on colonialism” point of view? Or was this a change due purely to the director and writers of the movie itself? Because I was a fan of how the character was portrayed in “Civil War”, which I regard as one of the best superhero movies ever made.
As I mentioned, this is the Midwest. The % of blacks in this community probably lower then 1%. Yet, the theaters were sold out. The movie has been a blockbuster not only here but internationally as well.
Awesome movie. And before anyone labels it as an attack on white colonialism, the bigger premise is why did Wakanda sit idly by and let that happen? Wakanda doesn't come off clean and the writers and director know this. The story is very well done in addressing this central theme.
Love your shtick in general. Absolutely love that you started this thread. "This shtick goes to eleven."
I saw it and I'd say the 7.6 above about nails where it should be. It's not a bad movie at all, but it's not some amazing piece of cinema either. There's some racist language in there, but not nearly all that over the top; though the "colonizer" schtick got old rather quickly. And I'll agree with @chris_in_sunnyvale that the bigger premise goes beyond the low hanging fruit that the national media outlets are rambling on about.
In fact, the "big bad" (who is essentially an American) takes on the whole black militancy ideal, which is painted as misguided, and the Wakandans are trying to fight him in the name of using their power for the good of humanity as a whole, not just black people. I'm not sure how people will interpret the message of the movie, but I came away from it seeing that the proper message is one of unification, not division.
