I haven't seen Black Panther yet. If you have see it is it close to this review? Language warning
The problem with super hero movies is here is no limit to what they can do. Every conflict can only be pointless
I think this is a GREAT movie.
It shows how much can be accomplished by a monoculture that eschews immigration and the destruction of diversity.
I grew up reading comics so I thought it was pretty cool when they started to make these movies but most of them are just awful. Can’t even sit through the marvel ones anymore. Still liked the 78 superman and burton’s batman movies though
I haven’t seen it, and won’t, but I happened to hear Michael Medved’s review on radio. He said the dialogue was cliche-filled and clunky, and the silly plot came off as a Game of Thrones wannabe. “Lavish but lumbering.”
I think some of the sightings are of escaped animals from zoos etc.
Also have seen one from nearby which turned out to be nothing but a really large and ugly dog.
I know that there are monkeys or is it chimps?, who escaped from a movie in Florida many years ago.
I thought I was posting on the Bigfoot thread.
They just saying that to save them some grief. I saw Malcolm the Tenth, and it was okay, but rather soulless and non-redeeming in nature.
Fast forward 25 years- I'm guessing Black Panther is an okay movie, but everyone is terrified to give it a bad review.
Best. Mis-post. Ever.
Look for this to begin happening in your workplace or playground.
Made perfect sense to me.
It’s the Gorilla tribe, so it’s more of a grunt. Not making this up.
I was perplexed by, not only the properties, but the apparent transcendental influence of VIBRANIUM. I know this imaginary substance was not new in this movie, but still it seems problematical that it could, ipso facto, provide the entire basis for the putative technological dominance of Wakanda.
... BTW Wauconda,IL has “been mentioned” in conjuction with this movie, but you know what? The original name was spelled “Wakanda”. Apparently an Indian name. No matter.
Well, I was led to contemplate how it was that VIBRANIUM was in contradiction to our well established understanding of our hard won atomic theory of matter, and in so doing, I reviewed its history.
Surprisingly, this led me immediately into a real life analogue, namely ALUMINUM. Well, not as fabulous as VIBRANIUM, of course, but it does have many points of correspondence. It’s a very common element, which takes its name from ALUM, a substance know from antiquity.
Yet even as chemistry advanced, and it was suspected that a “metal earth” was a constituent of alum, no one could isolate the metal itself.
This was finally achieved, but it was very difficult, and aluminum metal, for a brief time, was more expensive than gold. In the 1940’s, the method of electrolysis was developed, which led to the ability to mass produce aluminum metal. Of course, I cut the story short.
As per the analogy to Vibranium, I quote a message of Stalin to Roosevelt, “Give me 30,000 tonnes of aluminium, and I will win the war.”
... look it up.
Fun fact time!
