Does it have at least a nifty theme song?

We just got out of the film and I really enjoyed it. Probably comes second to Guardians of the Galaxy as far as Marvel films go.

A boring film - the depiction of Africa and Africans in Coming to America was more realistic (and that’s fucking saying something). Lots of inverse racism and patronising, simplistic nonsense. I’m astounded that this travesty hasn’t been slaughtered by critics.

I didn't find it boring - the action was good and in the large fight scenes you always had an idea why individuals were fighting certain other individuals. But as I said above earlier on I was left feeling vaguely uncomfortable. I wonder if it left some of the black American actors a tad confused by the cultural colonisation they were performing in the name of actually countering the historical colonisation. Russian doll style appropriation.

On the other hand it was just a super hero flick.

I thought it was boring because it followed the blockbuster formula to the letter:

Exposition: introduction/rise of central characters

Development: central characters fuck up and fall/evil rises/hopelessness

Redemption: central characters return strongly/large battle/simultaneous battle between main protagonists

Triumph: central characters win/moral lesson

All the while the story is littered with the sort of inspirational quote bollocks that's all over Facebook.

The assumption that uncolonised Africa would be a mirror of middle America is offensive to Africans.

That's not a Black Panther. This is a Black Panther.
