  1. Which tribe from Wakanda is your favorite? The Jabari, Border Tribe, Golden Tribe, River Tribe, Mining Tribe, or Merchant Tribe?

    One: Speak up and join the conversation- we encourage respectful debate.
    Two: Respect your community- racism, misogyny, homophobia and hate speech aren’t tolerated.
    Three: “Be nice.” – Dalton from Roadhouse

  2. Hey! I liked the third act. The MCU isn't the MCU without an over-the-top boss fight at the end. But otherwise, kudos for this. Especially noting the MCU's attempt to subvert a few tropes regarding their female characters, and then the reversal on the subversion that came with it. That's pretty typical Marvel-style storytelling.

    My only gripe with the trailer? I wish you had shown a photo of King Leopold II of Belgium when you talked about them sitting out brutal dictators. King Leopold II killed more Congolese than Hitler killed anyone. He's not talked about as much because the people he brutally murdered weren't coded as white. And that travesty took place right in the heart of Africa. For Wakanda to sit ideally by and not intervene when approx. 10 million Congolese suffered through a holocaust takes some serious non-commitment brainwashing.

  3. After months of forgetting it was on Netflix, I finally started watching it.. I couldn't shake that something was just off. However, after watching this and reading some of the comments I now believe it was the awkward CGI. The first thing that set me off was how fake/wrong T'Chaka looked in his Black Panther outfit. I realize it was just for one scene, but they could've really put more effort into making it not look like something out of Power Rangers. The mask looked like it was held up by string and then he just.. takes it off like a Halloween mask, no backside or anything?

    And yeah, the whole convenience of Vibranium just doesn't sit right. When it was just kind of limited in scope in the previous films it worked, but here it's like fucking magic. Another thing that really bothered me is like.. the WHOLE thing revolves around secrets. Like, this isn't really a problem with the movie, it's just one of those things that stuck in my head. Almost everyone is keeping a secret from everyone else, and I'm pretty positive there's still secrets left unspoken.

    I dunno, it's a good film, plenty of action and some definitely great moments, and the Honest Trailers is pretty on the mark with a lot of their remarks. I just.. I think TVTropes said it best when they listed "Hype Backlash" on their film's page. I was fully expecting an Avengers quality movie and it's.. kinda but not quite there? I guess my problem is that, like a number of other films/games/shows I've had issues with, it's the little things that bug you and ultimately bring the film down while overall movie not being bad necessarily. I'm reminded of my watching Iron Man 3, and while initially really enjoying the film I started feeling disappointed by the time it was over.
