Black Panther is coming, but...

Sure, it is good to have a black Super Hero movie, but my problem is why not have a movie about peace? Another movie with violence making you a hero. Peace sells but who's buying?

MLK is a hero. It might be good but blah.

Speaking as a comic book geek, I'm happy Black Panther is in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. He was good in Captain America: Civil War.

And BTW, films based upon comic book characters is suppose to have some violence. Please stop trying so hard to take the fun out of action films.

big action movies tend to make money. big action movies tend to help make stars out of actors. so why not just be glad that this movie exists and hope it leads to more meaningful or more important movies.

I bet you $100 I will!


Now I may not PAY to watch it and I will not go see it in a theater. (I think there are 3 movies I might go see in theaters this year...of my choosing)

I might rent it or watch it on netflix or do what I will do in a week or so with thor Ragnarok (see it on a streaming site) But I will see BP at some point. (I like super hero movies)

Why not watch it first then make a thread about it... From what I read, it's not your average action movie.

$100 is a lot of snow caps in the popcorn. Where is the Peace sign? All I see is the middle finger?

it looks great. I am so blown away by how far digital effects have come. and most of these have good solid stories and are well made and well acted.

it is a bet I can neither win or lose. he would not pay up and I will watch it... especially if $100 is riding on it.

it is odd that he would seem to flame me or whatever that was as assume I will not watch it when I basically said he will not watch it.

Me too. Just as he did with Creed, I think Ryan Coogler is going to knock this out of the park. It's phenomenal what Marvel is doing right now.

Already drama that rotten tomatoes are monitoringscrutinizing people that give it a bad rating. I'll just wait for the Passion of the Christ Part 2. Jesus goes to hell?

I was hoping that Rotten Tomatoes would've not made headlines with the 100% average until Friday. I knew as the news spread, there would be some jackass or two who just had to spoil it and write a disingenuous bad review.

That will be dope. I can't remember a film where they show what happens after he "gave up the ghost".

Back on topic: I think you're going to miss out on something special skipping BP though. But, to each his own.

I would pay him the $100 so you don't have to go to the movies with him.

So are you one of those home theater guys or do you normally pass on action movies with violence in them?

I really enjoyed it but I did feel the first part overdid some of the 'zoot suit" stuff...it was almost cartoony and maybe it would have worked better without Spike in it.

But I thought Denzel was fantastic.

yeah but then he got one a while later for something maybe not deserving? but I agree he was the best actor that year.

see what happens when you make up things about people... I am very open and welcoming of all sorts of diverse ideas. but you seem to like to make up false assumptions due in part to what you perceived to be my racial background.
