Wonder Woman is way way better than BatmanVSuperman.

That said, as much as I like her and Gal Gadot as her, I liked the movie less the second time I watched it.

i watched it last Saturday, i'm still kinda bugged about it... It had all the elements of a Triple A marvel movie and i liked how they inputted the African culture and design throughout.. i loved the jokes, the locations, the technology.. However i don't feel satisfied... nothing really stood out as epic to me( that one scene that you replay in your head million times long after the movie is done)... the storyline felt generic.. didn't seem like a badass villain to me. I didn't feel the rollercoaster or the climax of a typical movie..


Maybe I've reached the point of overload or maybe i fell into the hype.
This is just another character introduction movie to me.

I dunno, I though it more satisfying that he was more of an hero in his own right, but with goals that put him into conflict with the protagonist. His motives and aggression weren't due to deranged chaotic lunacy... they were clear and noble in purpose, and probably not attainable except through violence.

Yeah, I rather liked the villain. And he really did feel like the hero of his own story. Hell his story is basically the same as Simba's from The Lion King. Maybe a wee bit more blood thirsty.

One article called Killmonger the Magneto of the MCU. Just like X Men, the film starts with the events that would eventually drive him to pursue his goal. And like Magneto, he is only the villain by a combination of ruthless execution of his ideals and point of view. But he has a valid point even if his methods are wrong. In the end T'Challa recognizes this and acts on Killmonger's critique of Wakanda, unlike Professor X who can occasionally ally with Magneto when their goals are not in conflict but who never acknowledges that on some level Magneto is right about the threat to Mutants.

It also kind of fits with the southern African concept of ubuntu.

We are going to see it again tomorrow. I practically NEVER go to a movie theater twice for a movie (maybe once when I was a teenager). For example, I have yet to see the latest Star Wars film and at this point just will see it on blu-ray.

I barely make it to the theaters once these days. Moving to down has helped some though because my aunt and uncle live in town and go a lot with my parents so I get to tag along.

I think I ended up seeing the first Jurassic Park like 5 or 6 times though in theaters.

Ever since I was able to watch a movie on a VCR I have been spoiled. Watch it when is good for me from my couch, eat whatever WHILE watching the movie, pause it to go to the bathroom, fast forward if I want or repeat something in slo-mo, even look up something on imdb if I am bugged that some actor is familiar for some reason.

'Black Panther' Sequel Confirmed by Marvel Studios Head

Quote:
While speaking with EW, the Marvel Studios head was asked about the prospect of more Black Panther, and he was quick to say there was more in store for the now-beloved world of Wakanda.

"Nothing specific to reveal, other than to say we absolutely will do that," Feige said of the Black Panther sequel. "One of the favorite pastimes at Marvel Studios is sitting around on a Part One and talking and dreaming about what we would do in a Part Two. There have been plenty of those conversations as we were putting together the first Black Panther. We have ideas and a pretty solid direction on where we want to head with the second one."

I like Killmonger's line in some scenes. Have you guys seen the #KillmongerWasRight on Twitter?

Plus, it just cleared the $1 billion mark in gross ticket sales. Disney never leaves money on the table.
