Black Panther (2017)

I thought this was great! Loved the story, although I find the Black Panther's abilities so typical I really enjoyed the African angle. The final fight was terrible but all in all a good movie.

3.5/5

I agree, the first confrontation between T'Challa and Killmonger on the waterfall was so much more thrilling than the tensionless final fight between the CGI cat-people.

You're totally right, I forgot to mention that. The waterfall fight was intense, even though you pretty much knew T'Challa was going to lose. I was also a bit confused by the general lady (Woman from Walking Dead) she seemed to have a measure of superhuman strength herself, especially when using that spear to grind to a halt in the car chase.

Yeah. That just came off as extremely goofy.

I think for me, everything felt so forced. The humor was lame, the accents distracting, and the dialogue bland. It had a surprising lack of over-the-top action for a Marvel film, except the final act which still felt somehow weak. It was a good film, that's for sure... but it ranks pretty low on the totem pole of Marvel films. Even Age of Ultron is more enjoyable to watch. Probably not the second Thor movie though.

What a coincidence, one of the last movies I saw happens to be Black Panther too! I liked the acting (Klaw was great) and core message. But "extremely goofy" isn't an inaccurate way to describe it. Even for a comic book movie, it was hard for me to suspend my disbelief about some parts..like the car controlled over wifi by sitting in a 3D model. I agree with Vaporman- it's a definitely a lower tier Marvel movie, but a fun one. Speaking of the waterfall fight, am I the only one who was distracted by the guy in the green suit? Everyone else is standing there in traditional Wakanda garb and it's like he didn't have time to change.


I also watched the 2017 remake of Murder on the Orient Express (it wasn't great) and Wonder Wheel (it's good, but nothing amazing.)

Based on the era in which he lived, I can safely assume that Seabiscuit was a virulent racist.

The part where the guy from Get Out was riding the rhino was incredibly goofy, why isn't that a gif/meme?

Den of Thieves (2018)

I felt that overall this was an okay film. I was kind of hoping for more action than what was actually in it. The build up was just long and boring, and the characters were just okay. We only get really two action scenes throughout the movie, and both of them are kind of small and quick.

The ending however was pretty great for what it was, and I even laughed at the scene where 50 Cent's daughter goes to prom.

3/5

Just watched The Pink Panther on Demand yesterday.

The original and TRUE Pink Panther, mind you, not that crappy remake with Steve Martin and its sequel. A comedy classic, what more can I say? Peter Sellers is hilarious as the bumbling Inspector Clouseau. Highly recommend it.

5 out of 5.

Scared Straight

A documentary about juvenile delinquents, who have their lives turned around by convicted felons.

I think it's a provocative look at getting a second chance at life. It's something that not only troubled teenagers, but troubled adults should watch. Prison life is not the way to go.

4 stars.
