I rated Black Panther 8/10

www.imdb.com/title/tt1825683

For a superhero movie this is entertaining and a little different from the usual.

Some great casting, a brief history of Wakandia, and some good social commentary made this a bit deeper than other Earth-based Marvel movies.

The bad guys are suitably bad. And the main one is tough, ruthless, smart, and has a reasonably compelling backstory.

The conceit of Wakandia as a secret, highly-advanced place is wonderful.

The film goes on a little bit longer than I’d like but there’s only one period where it lulls slightly after the Korea events.

All in all this is a great superhero movie. While it has its fair share of blammo fighting and special effects it also has a few more diplomatic angles on resolving problems.

The end credit short scene is a very nice touch.

Go see it if you can.

I go to the movies now and again. I take a few photos here and there and play with them a bit in Adobe Lightroom.
