'Black Panther' review
My biggest fear going into ‘Black Panther’ was that director Ryan Coogler would serve up a righteous narrative fuelled by Fela’s ‘Water No Get Enemy’. A story riding milking the idea of the untouched African country, untainted by European occupiers and firmly in control of its destiny. Conceived by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby in 1966, the cynic in me regards Blank Panther and his kingdom Wakanda as a mere utopia for the white gaze and an antithesis of the distressing dysfunction of the continent. This sentiment informs this paragraph, which I penned weeks before I actually saw the film.

Right now Disney is only suggesting the film will make $172 million to $198 million in its opening weekend. Still a very impressive feat. Black Panther generated $25.2 million during the Thursday previews.
'Black Panther' Review
The Black Panther character was first introduced to the Cinematic Universe in 2016’s “Captain America: Civil War”, with “42” and “Get On Up” actor Chadwick Boseman in the role of Marvel’s prominent African American superhero. This new solo movie, which picks-up just days after the events of “Civil War“, has a distinct feel and style which separates it from all of the studio’s previous releases. Is that good or bad?

Black Panther (2018) Movie Review
Jane Tomato reviews Black Panther for @FilmGob — Don't believe the hype, Black Panther is a stodgy tale of internecine feuding, like Thor but more African looking. An insipid, soulless, and overproduced bore in which the superhero T'Challa doesn't get to do much of the 'jump around beating-up bad guys' thing that Marvel delightfully fed us over the past 10 years. The giddy exuberance is gone, with no Baby Groot in sight. What is here is Michael B Jordan, doing that angry face he does.

'The 15:17 to Paris' Review
I am convinced that Clint Eastwood did not direct “The 15:17 to Paris”. Somebody named Cliff Eastwood or Clint Eastman – maybe. But not the four-time Oscar-winning director and all-time movie icon.

Joaquin Phoenix to star in Warner Bros 'Joker' standalone
Variety’s latest exclusive serves as a reminder that Leonardo DiCaprio was once rumored to star in Warner Bros. 'Joker' standalone. Of course as their exclusive so eloquently reveals, “that didn’t pan out.” Shocker.
'Mom and Dad' review
Buried in the craziness of ‘Mom and Dad’ is an earnest exploration of parental angst and midlife crises. But that’s just the bonus that comes with the package. The label promises an epidemic causing parents to murder their kids and it delivers on that front with gleeful mordancy. The central conceit has a mysterious signal triggering these wild homicidal tendencies in parents. We are given some sort of scientific explanation in this regard that I won’t get into, but we are eager to see this film make nonsense of God’s charge to have man and woman bear fruit and fill the world.
