    But you are Black, yes?

    How would you know what will and won’t make sense to someone who is not Black? Wouldn’t you have to be non-Black to know the answer? Do you have a racist bone in your body?

    I’m black from America. I don’t know the experiences of black people from other parts of the world. But I do know anyone non-black from any part of the world wouldn’t get what I’m talking about when I get specific on culturally sensitive things.

    I can’t imagine having the conversation with a non-black person which would make sense to them.

    Interesting, in what sense?

    Because shared cultural identity defaults into shorthand. And there is too much to explain blackness and anti-blackness to someone who likely partakes in their own anti-blackness who doesn’t for a second believe they have a racist bone in their body.

    No, what he means is that non-black people (white people or other POC) won’t understand why there’s so much pride going into this movie. For instance, I know this white guy who saw it and thought it was great but said “I don’t see black people any other time in the theater but they all show up for this? This isn’t a black power movie, ya know?” which let me know how shallow and narrow minded he was.

    Fair statement.

    Respectfully, for some there is pride in the movie. For others just being Black gives pride enough but I appreciate what you’re saying.

    I hate to admit it but I liked it. Ugh.

    Glad to know quality can win out with you despite your steadfast racial prejudice.

    Just saw it. I really liked it, specially the actors and the world building of Wakanda which I think was spot-on. I would live there forever! But I don’t see the film as this great piece of art nor as a game-changer… I’ve seen all this before. I totally support that more inclusive films like this be made, and I consider it an important film to the problems of our days. But can someone explain why is Black Panther so groundbreaking?

    Absolutely loved this – far and away the best Marvel film yet, and one of the best in the “superhero” genre, although I’m not even sure I would classify this as a “superhero” film. The film is genre-bending and groundbreaking, a Shakespearean tale with hints of “Star Wars,” “Game of Thrones,” and Bond films mixed in for good measure. The world-building was exhilarating, the ensemble was fantastic, the visuals were a true treat for the eyes, the direction was top-notch, and the story was packed with layers that send this film flying high. Beyond the historic nature of a mostly black cast leading a blockbuster, I feel like this film went beyond what we’re used to seeing from Marvel films. It says something about our society while taking place in a fictional universe and the lessons go much further than general “good vs. bad” themes that are usually harped on in other superhero films. The impact this film is having in pop culture right now is undeniable and well-deserved. Though I am not a hardcore Marvel fan, I do think fans are right when they say this film is going to lead in the next phase of the Marvel universe (especially if, as rumored, some of the original Avengers characters are set to be phased out with these upcoming sequels) and “Black Panther” makes me more excited than I have been in recent years about what an expanded MCU holds.

    “..in the times of crisis, the wise builds bridges, while fools build barriers..”

    Just saw “Black Panther.” Excellent.

    I stayed through the first set of credits – cool imaging of the characters, but I almost missed the very ending after the second set of credits.. stay until the very end.

    Yep, I will be seeing this one again before it leaves the theaters.

    I thought it was good but not amazing. I can understand the cultural significance of this film, just like it happened with Wonder Woman, but there’s no need to ignore the ammount of issues that the film has (just like it happened with Wonder Woman). It’s not that good.

    Letitia Wright better become a star. Give all the action roles to Danai Gurira, she fucking killed this. Lupita NyongO also did an excellent job. Andy Serkis too. These ladies ran away with this film, Chadwick Boseman didn’t even notice. As usual the leads in this films end up with unexciting roles.

    The best MCU film continues to be Winter Soldier. The best comic book film continues to be The Dark Knight. Black Panther doesn’t even come close.
