Black Panther Review: The wise build bridges, indeed.

Black Panther Review: The wise build bridges, indeed.

Last week, I blasted the identity-politics-mongering cultural Left for driving a wedge between black Americans and white Americans coming together to participate in the cultural milestone that is “Black Panther” this weekend. I particularly rebuked their fanatical, destructive politicization of the film, and how it will only divide people during a time of unity. Their anti-social worldview became so toxic that The New York Times enlisted a professor to caution white Americans against having their children dress up as “Black Panther”…

The fun and ambitious Black Panther is one strange Marvel film

The fun and ambitious Black Panther is one strange Marvel film

It’s been a decade and 18 movies, but the MCU has finally produced a superhero flick that seems like it was ripped from the pages of a comic book. Ditching the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s familiar roster of heroes together with many of the basics of the Marvel movie formula, Ryan Coogler has turned Black Panther into a highly personal crowd-pleaser in the vein of his last installment, the Rocky sequel Creed, yet with all the idiosyncrasies and thrills afforded by…

Black Panther is an anthem of female empowerment!

Black Panther is an anthem of female empowerment!

Black Panther is an anthem of female empowerment! My first experiences witnessing black women in movie are not that great. As a seven-year-old black girl, I’m watching Whoopi Goldberg in Sister Act. She is a lounge singer on the run, moonlighting as a sister in a convent. She is helping a group of tone-deaf white women become their best selves. I am delighted. Perhaps one day, I can also teach a group of aged white nuns…

Black Panther: The film’s Hero is Donald Trump whereas the Baddie is Black Lives Matter

Black Panther: The film’s Hero is Donald Trump whereas the Baddie is Black Lives Matter

Black Panther: The film’s Hero is Donald Trump whereas the Baddie is Black Lives Matter There is a ton of thing to like about Marvel’s big-budget hit Black Panther, and almost as much not to like. For starters, director and co-writer Ryan Coogler does an A+ job of world building (more on this later). In addition, the soundtrack and score also deserve an A+. Plus, there are the actors, the greatest cast yet assembled in all of…

Black Panther is a glorious, intense superhero film that you cannot miss out

Black Panther is a glorious, intense superhero film that you cannot miss out Every so often, a movie comes along that changes the entire cinematic game. Over the past several years, rumbling about the casting of black actors (or lack thereof) in Hollywood has bloomed into a full-blown revolt. Coupled with the volatile racial environment in the U.S. at the moment, now feels like the perfect time for something to emerge from the creative hive…

‘Black Panther’ is the King, but bad one Killmonger just took over the villain throne

‘Black Panther’ is the King, but bad one Killmonger just took over the villain throne

‘Black Panther‘ is the King, but bad one Killmonger just took over the villain throne Erik Killmonger’s time on the kingdom of Wakandan reign was short-lived, but he is now the undisputed ruler of Marvel Cinematic Universe viallains. There’s Killmonger, and then there’s everybody else. There was a time when debating the greatest Marvel Cinematic Universe villain of all time before “Avengers: Infinity War” theatrical debut would have seemed pointless. Let’s call that time by…
