Black Panther

Another adventure in optimism by me after hearing loads of critical acclaim – I couldn’t get on with Black Panther, either. I think I get the reasons for which this film’s culturally significant, but at the root of it I still just didn’t think it was a very good film.  Plus I get the ache whenever a whole culture is depicted as talking slowly and being very earnest about everything.  👎

Using powers reserved to Wakandan kings, T'Challa assumes the Black Panther mantel to join with girlfriend Nakia, the queen-mother, his princess-kid sister, members of the Dora Milaje (the Wakandan 'special forces') and an American secret agent, to prevent Wakanda from being dragged into a world war.
