Premiering in the middle of Black History Month is the first superhero film with a predominantly black cast, Black Panther.

Hope that it's a great film! This is hyped like it's the monumental Marvel film of the millennium. :oops: :oops:

I watched this yesterday and it was pretty great.

Honestly, I never really care for superhero movies as I always think the stories are always too predictable, including this one. But the visuals totally make up for it. The wardrobe is INSANE. Loved the way they include some African traditional cultures. And the shirt that the King wears actually looks pretty identical to what us Muslims usually wear during Eid/when we go to the mosque so it's kinda relatable & cute to see it presented in such a big movie.

A bit disappointed they didn't play more K-Bops during the scenes in Korea but oh well. :lol:

Best Marvel film I’ve seen in a long time. Better than the latest Thor film and better than Justice League from the other studio.

The plot was well-explained, even if you don’t follow the comics you’re fine. As someone already said, the visuals are great too.

This was really good, T'challa and Killmonger are both so hot!

I think he should have hooked up with that warrior chick though!

I wish I had words to describe the joy this movie brought me, but I don't. It is easily among the Top 10 films I've ever seen. Brilliance on so many levels: plot, visuals, acting. Take me to Wakanda now! :cry:

If so, it's being under-hyped because it's even better than that.

I’d like to know who voted “no”. Or at least just take a good look at them.

I voted no because I’m working a lot at the moment and don’t have the time. I’m hopefully seeing it next weekend. Not everything is about racism which is what it looks like you are getting at with your comment.

Also voted "No". I do not like Marvel and I am not too fond of going to a cinema, will watch it at home someday.

Probably the third best MCU movie to date IMO after The Winter Soldier and the first Guardians. Awesome movie, and admittedly I didn't have high expectations because I wasn't that impressed with his introduction in Civil War.

I voted no. I am not interested in Marvel movies and even if I would be I'd not watch it at a cinema, I prefer buying DVDs

The movie was just ok for me. Nothing groundbreaking, predictable as all the other superhero movies by Marvel.
However, Dr. Strange and Thor Ragnarok are among the best superhero movies ever for me!
