I'm gonna make a new thread because I'm confident that most of you here are capable of discussing the movie like adults.

Who saw it? Thoughts?

The beginning seemed all over the place but that’s cause they weren’t setting up a superhero movie. They were on some hamlet shit, getting all king leer up in this bitch.

I can understand how a less skilled viewer wouldn’t be able to pivot expectations.

Other than some dodgy cg at the end and me personally not seeing my politics represented (Killmonger was right) a good movie with a unique esthetic that I look forward to showing my future black children.

And it’s just a blessing to see black girl magic on full display.

The existence of other important films doesnt negate the importance of this one.

It's often underestimated how powerful of an impact a character, indeed a movie like this can have on the psyche of younger non-whites, especially blacks in this case. Having a superhero film mostly made up of people that look like you instead of your white friends for once, instead of your guy just being a sidekick or comic relief as usual? It has an effect on how you view yourself. Not so much for those already grown up, but the youngsters who's more intricate and nuanced worldviews are still ridiculously malleable in so many subtle ways.

Also, it not only seems like good fun for all and a good installment of the greater MCU, especially leading into Infinity War. And more importantly, imo, it looks like it features some absolutely stunning and miraculous cinematography and set designs and character designs and mise en scène, which I'm a sucker for. The score and soundtrack seem to be amazing too. Actual plot details aside, it just looks like a beautifully crafted film. Which isn't to knock the plot cuz it looks like it stands out from the rest of the "capeshit" milieu. Seems like it's, among other things, taking the elements that made Captain America 2: The Winter Soldier so unique and cranking them up to 11. Lots of futuristic covert tech and some high treason master conspiracy shiz.

lolno the plot was one of the worst parts of the movie. The soundtrack though... for a blockbuster movie, the music really stood out. There were a handful of times I was so entranced by it that I missed a few lines of dialogue. All of the Wakandan stuff felt unique, and I loved the high-tech-but-tribal vibe.

Killmonger is the best villain so far. The character isn't all that original, but Jordan makes him charismatic as fuck, you actually want him to succeed at committing a worldwide massacre.

Overall: better than what Marvel usually churns out, but still too formulaic to be great.

I haven't seen the movie but I heard this part could have been more intriguing. I hear he IS a villain on par with Magneto (before some writers make him slaughter people senselessly) in the fact you can agree with his goals. Apparently he does have some sort of ulterior motive and wants to start conflict for his own gain or something like that?

Like I say haven't seen it. That actor is fantastic though. Some people are saying "so and so is beneath cape shit" apparently this guy being in the movie really improved it. Looks like he's having fuck ton of fun in the role too.

Killmonger is human. Magneto doesn't really play fair when he teams up with humans.

Mind you, that time he came into conflict with Red Skull had an extra dimension, Red Skull being a nazi and white-human-supremacist, and Magneto being a jew and mutant-supremacist.
Magneto locked the Red Skull in a bunker while no one knew where the Red Skull was - essentially leaving Red Skull to die of thirst... maybe even oxygen starvation. Didn't look like a big bunker.

I think Magneto would eventually say something along the lines of "Jews and blacks are treated the same" which would make Killmonger annoyed and point out how much better Jews in the US are generally treated but then when he tried to point it out, Magneto is a holocaust survivor and it would make the whole thing really awkward and they'd just not want to hang out so much any more.

The only villain I can think of with no redeeming qualities or sympathetic back story is Megatron. All comic book villains were either good at one point or had some gay tragedy happen to make them bad. I always liked the joker because he seemed like a true sociopath. DC seems to have more creative villains.

I just looked up Thanos and Megatrons back story. They both have sympathetic backstories even though they are hardly ever mentioned. Thanos it says was almost murdered by his mother for not looking like her and in his childhood years was a pacifist. He then became obsessed with death as a emo teenager. Megatron was a slave or some shit and then became a freedom fighter.

So I guess the Joker is the only villain who is 100% evil and is a true sociopath. I looked up his backstory too and he was originally created with none. They tried to add different versions of his origin story later but none of them are really accepted. When I think of the Joker I think of Charlie Manson... And that is a truly scary villain.

Thanos is surprisingly complex. Funny you should say "unrepentant" given how much of his post-Gauntlet history's been spent as an outright hero.
Lemme let you in on possible spoilers for movie: Thanos is the one that always undoes his own plans and resets the status quo. Subconsciously he doesn't think himself worthy of Death's affection, and thus repeatedly self-sabotages.

So black panther again. So lit. I find it hilarious that if he had just listened to Nakia the movie would of been resolved in the first ten minutes.

And not to rain on anyone's parade I don't see any indication they're going to stick with Thano' s cosmic friendzone back story. And honestly he's probably better off being a generic villain to facilitate growth in the hero characters than as a dark role model for pimps.

I saw it on Friday. I thought it was really good since the action scenes were cool like the whole battle at the end but they didn't seem like they were overtly violent but I guess that's what you get for an MCU film. Soundtrack was also dope too. Michael B. Jordan was awesome as Killmonger though and his whole persona of wanting to use Wakanda's vibranium to take over the world and make money off of selling weapons seemed cliche but his justification for it at least made sense.

Heard an interesting take that the movie throws African Americans under the bus to elevate the idea of Africa being more pure. While certainly don't think that was Coogler's intention or some point Disney wanted squeezed into the movie far be it from me to tell a black woman how to feel about a piece of media.

It is kinda messed up that the only African American is the bad guy, but they find a way to make a white CIA agent a hero.

Do you mean the "end capitalism, imperialism, acknowledge that the struggle for equality does not end with civil rights and that riots are a reaction to a greater crime"-MLK or the "protest in ways that don't inconvenience or offend anyone, or break any laws, and be as weak and trivial to neutralize as possible"-MLK?

Malcolm X would have been remembered very differently if he hadn't been killed. He left the Nation of Islam, and at that point was really just like if Martin Luther King were a member of the NRA.

Young Malcolm X was kinda just a disillusioned hooligan, and most of what he's famous for happened along a long transition toward not being that. Then he got there and naturally they had to shoot him for it.

Also the dude who shot Martin Luther King Jr. said it was more about communism than racism. But y'know, probably both.

Martin Luther King Jr had pretty much fully transitioned to economic justice instead of simply regular old civil rights. I mean, civil rights stuff would get you killed quick back in the day but when you start to tread into Marxist territory and the entire white government already hates you, you're a dead man. I can only imagine he saw it coming.

King was basically a Democratic Socialist. I don't think you can really label him a "Marxist" in any way.

I can tell you one thing, if KING weren't murdered, he damn sure would be remembered drastically differently. This caricaturuzation of him as the civil rights Jesus sure as shit wouldn't have happened. All these right wing shitlords who always go on about how "MLK" wouldn't have protested this way! He'd have bowed his head, hat in hand, and politely asked the establishment if the police could please stop murdering unarmed minorities without due cause, and politely said "Okay, thank you. Sorry to bother you, sir." when his request was declined." would be singing a different tune about this guy who they've retroactively turned into this ridiculous Uncle Tom house n***we. I bet you there would be more than a couple Trump tweets denouncing him, he'd be labeled an outright Stalinist Commie, and the Hillary Clinton types would distance themselves from him like they do with Harry Belafonte.

It's ceremonial garb. Something that the king traditionally wears as part of being king. Like a pope hat or a duke sash. The fact that the suit can do special superhuman stuff is a relatively recent thing.
Also aren't the suit abilities we see in his movie all brand new cutting edge experimental innovations? I don't recall him having purple shockwaves in Civil War. They even gave Shuri that whole James Bond Q scene near the beginning to talk him through it. So maybe they fully intend to mass produce it; once he's given it a test drive and worked out all the kinks.

*Plus, the king is also the active defender/protector/first-line-of-defense in Wakandan culture (hence kingship being determined by ritualized pit-fight; it makes "strong ruler" literal) so no shit he gets first dibs on the best toys. It's in everyone's best interest that he be made exceptionally formidable. nb

This was a lot better than I thought it would be. I liked the whole Atlantis from Africa thing and all the political intrigue. It had great sets and costumes and I found the moral, philosophical and political arguments it made intriguing. You had the one guy who wanted to use their superior military technology to take over the world and make it a better place that way, then you had the old king who wanted to isolate and not use that technology to help anyone but their own people and then you had the girlfriend who wanted to use the country's wealth and power to help in humanitarian struggles. It's very relevant considering the current political landscape with refugees and whatnot. TChalla has a nice character arc realizing that his father was wrong and that the villain is actually right just misguided in his methods. Overall the movie is visually gorgeous thanks to the vibrant African themes, and the "primitive" tribal behavior coexisting side by side with the super advanced technology was interesting to see. Where it was lacking was the traditional fun of a superhero movie where a normal person acquires powers. That's not really a thing here, you're not vicariously experiencing what it would be like to have the powers, it's more like a super hero movie sequel in that way. Still better than most of the garbage they've been putting out lately though.

I think that "traditional" element ain't all that vital given that so many of the Ur-capes were all either born with powers (Superman, Wonder Woman, Sub-Mariner, OG Human Torch) or lacked them (Batman, The Spirit, The Shadow, The Phantom).
The fact that T'Challa's abilities are attached to his regency might actually be the point. He's not a relatable everyman who stumbled into power; he's a 1%er born & raised into these privileges. Albeit so that he can use them to best rule & protect his subjects. The character comes with his own metaphorical wall. Regular people aren't expected to live vicariously through him, because his responsibilities don't permit him the carefree life of a regular person.
Of course that characterization hinges on an underlying "the monarchy knows best" message. So his journey, ala Thor, entails bringing him down from that high horse & making him reevaluate his ethos. Basically the "traditional" trope in reverse. Superperson becomes more of a regular person.

So the thing about Superman is that Superman really has four identities. Yes Superman, worlds greatest hero, is an act, as is Kal-El of Krypton, the alien god, but so is the Clark Kent that works at the Daily Planet and that most people know and interact with. The real Clark is a very different guy and only really comes out when he is back in Smallville with his parents or alone with Lois or maybe shooting the shit with Bruce and Barry and Ollie.

I recently tried to watch BP because I saw it on Netflix and was curious if it lived up to the hype. It was the dumbest Marvel movie I've seen in a long time. I'm not a huge Marvel fan, but I do like the Iron Man, Spider Man, and Thor movies. So I guess I'm kinda selective in which ones I think are just stupid enough to sit through, but god damn Black Panther was terrible.

Would've like more Wakanda world building but Killmonger was a pretty good villain; would've been nice if Black Panther wasn't so fucking overpowered and maybe did more shit as the Prince with political/ethical problems not sharing the crazy tech they have

To be clear, I don't hate it. I just thought it was extremely mediocre especially compared to how well received it was. I was disappointed. Because I'm not huge into Marvel but recently Infinity War and Black Panther both got huge warm receptions and I really loved IW, so I thought maybe they're starting to make good movies and this is a new wave, but nope. IW was just the culmination of a mountain of shit that somehow amounts to something cool through movie magic. That dude who runs Marvel is a genius. Idk how he does it.

Nah bro, there's no way that characters like Captain Patriot Man and Iron "Billionaires are good let's give them no accountability and all the weapons and treat them like saviors" Man could possibly be vectors for propaganda. No way.

And which naturally leads people to make assumptions.
E.g., maybe you think it's stupid because it portrays certain people as intelligent & industrious.

If that was indeed what you found stupid about it you might as well just say & own it rather than pussy out. If that's not it at all and such an assumption is abhorrent character assassination then by all means; set the record straight. What actually makes Afrofuturism less interesting-and-cool than skull bikers or space cops? IMO the concept is better on both fronts, so I'm interesting in this alternative viewpoint.

>>403887
Are you >>403765? Because that's the post that "brought race into it like an idiot" by implying it's stupid because it doesn't portray Africans as cavemen. Insofar that's the closest you/he/whoever's elaborated re: what exactly is so stupid. Ergo, it's all anyone else has to go on re: your opinion.

I'm giving you free reign to show me up, tell me off and prove me wrong here. Which should be easy as piss to do. Because surely race has nothing to do with it, no sir. So why the lack of detail or elaboration? WHAT is so obviously inherently stupid about black people building space ships? Fill me in.

Nobody forced you to give a suspiciously vague yet forceful condemnation of a politically controversial movie, and nobody forced you to suspiciously refuse to elaborate when given the chance. If you wade into a topic with a known preexisting controversy then act all coy about your motivations and get defensive when people ask you to elaborate, then you leave others with no other option than to fill in the blanks themselves. If you refuse to complete your thoughts then you open them up for others to complete them for you.

This is how human communication works. Deal with it or die mad about it.

I didn't presume anything! I'm just curious if that poster had any specific reason to think the "faux african shit" was dumb. Check IDs before you become so hostile, dipshit

Aesthetically it isn't "faux" at all, with very clear influence from a dozen or so cultures with a futuristic spin. Ostensibly, it was the best thing about the movie imo.

Literally what you said was that the lack of mudhuts & nosebones is "my point exactly", and why "it's extremely stupid".
As such, "faux African shit" sounds like "they should only show REAL Africa", which either misses the point that this is a work of fantastical fiction, or implies that fantasy-fiction Africa is, itself, a stupid idea that's not worth portraying.

And FTR: it's also the insinuation that other "fucking stupid comic book movies" apparently aren't all that fucking stupid. e.g. Iron Man, Spider-Man and Thor. If this was a blanket critique of all superhero fare that'd have been that. But nah; those 3 are all great. Black Panther is SPECIFICALLY offensive, somehow.
And the fact of the matter is, whether it's because of the obvious difference or not for you: that obvious difference HAS explicitly unashamedly been why many people who hate this movie claim to hate it. So whoop-de-frickin'-do if people assume the guy reciting the same opinion with the same language has the same reasons when he adamantly refuses to clarify otherwise.

I didn't even finish the movie so I can't give a 100% accurate analysis. But I thought the African shit looked inauthentic and like a ripoff, it seemed exploitative to me tbh. I'm no African historian so maybe I was wrong but one of my first thoughts was "what would some Maasai people think if they saw this movie, would they think it's absurd and would they be upset"? Now that I think about it, they probably wouldn't give a shit. It's just some silly movie.

And before you say that I can't go calling it stupid without finishing it, I can and I will. I didn't finish The Last Jedi either and I feel very comfortable calling that movie dumb and felt very good about my decision to turn it off after the Space Leia scene. Also, the comment in response to the mudhuts was very clearly riffing off of the other person's sarcasm. Or was Poe's Law only working for my post?

I said that I liked those other comic movies and they are literally the only ones that I listed that I liked. Is it rare for someone to only like a few comic book movies? Or maybe it's because Tony Stark is white HMMMMMM?? Do you guys have any more absurd conclusions to draw out of thin air? I bet you guys think I harassed Idris Elba on twitter because he was being considered for James Bond, you guys are fucking paranoid.

Idk, the movie isn't doing quite as well on its Rottentomatoes score as I expected, 79% audience score (which seems relatively low compared to how intensely it was received), so I assume I'm not literally the only person on the planet who thought the movie was silly. But I just think it's hilarious how serious some of you are when I simply didn't give a great explanation of why I didn't like it. And after the treatment I've gotten for simply disliking a movie that everyone else likes, I've gotta say I wasn't very incentivized to further explain my criticisms. It's like you guys have never heard of being in a foggy mind state and not being able to express yourself clearly. Y'all need to smoke more. Especially you >>403930

So you're implying that race exploitation can't exist in a fantasy setting? Idk, I feel like they used the race of the nation to pretty subtly hide some themes that are pretty counter to the way that the people who lionize the movie might see it. I actually don't know how they see it, but I doubt they see it as regressive, conservative and nationalist. And I didn't realize what I was feeling or noticing at first but it definitely bothered me. They live in gated community surrounded by starving black people for Christ's sake. I don't remember them questioning their conservative nature either. It's just a weird movie that I think is a bit dissonant in tone and meaning. It says one thing and does an other. And then people vehemently defend it if they think someone is attacking it because of race. My feelings about it are pretty much the opposite of the conclusions drawn in this thread. From the very beginning it felt like I was being sold a lie. But I couldn't put my finger on it. And I didn't realize it until I just started thinking about it more now. It doesn't represent what the unwashed masses think. Or maybe it's just a shitty movie and they weren't meaning to be essentially jingoistic and regressive. They portray the only person that wants to do good with what they have as a psychopath, so I can't help but feel that they were doing this with the intent of essentially being about how great it is to hoard your money while the rest of the world starves. Kinda seems like it's rich people saying "peasants, what we do is okay. in fact, it's good, now please go back to your tv like a good citizen and please don't break into my gated community and lynch me when you realize just how unjust this disparity is."

Killmonger's first action upon securing power was to give all oppressed people the tools to overthrow their exploiters.
Tchella's final action, after ending Killmonger's plan, was to set up foreign embassies and set up a foreign charity in Killmonger's old neighborhood.

Billions continuing to live in poverty, while Wakanda does the absolute minimum to assuage their guilt could have only been better if Wakanda continued Killmonger's plan, but just armed those in power.

I know a few key facts that either nobody here noticed because they were too busy eating the assholes of some studio execs while they're wanking themselves off about how progressive they are when really they don't have a fucking clue how regressive they are because they're just that out of touch. Or they don't give a shit. Or the third option is that this is just an other fake film about empowerment that really is propaganda telling you that you should remain docile. Either way, I really have a hard time thinking that nobody ever pointed out to them that point E was a bit problematic.

Yeah, it's a comic movie but it's also a movie that chose to take on some pretty fucking important themes in some very ass backwards and irresponsible ways that shouldn't be ignored, especially if you're lionizing the movie for being progressive. And don't tell me that you guys don't, because if you didn't you wouldn't call people who criticize it regressive.

A) Only 1 person in the entirety of Wakanda thought "hey maybe we should stop hiding and hoarding our wealth, and go help all those starving people next door"

B) That 1 person was portrayed as the villain and as a psychopath, and treated as such by all of Wakanda. He was the symbol of socialism and treated as a nutjob for not being okay with sitting on a pile of gold coins while the world rots. Everyone in Wakanda is so comfortable in their gated communities. If this is just role reversal, then it wasn't done very well considering the general tone of the movie is counter revolutionary.

C) The hero seems like one of those "ends justifies the means" kinda guys. He's isolationist, regressive. Not very likeable.

D) The movie seems to reinforce some stereotypes such as "the only thing that Africa can produce is what can be mined and drilled out of it." That's a bit dated and colonialist. It shows a lack of creativity that they couldn't come up with some better background for their advancement than they've got minerals in the ground. Like seriously, you're gonna take the historical way that Africans have been oppressed and continue to be to this day and transform that into the background for how Africans have freed themselves in this fictional world. It's almost like subtle revisionism. Turning the enslavement of capital into the savior of the race. Yeah the comics were written a while ago but nobody would have held it against them if they decided against making the backbone of Wakanda blood diamonds.

E) They're super advanced yet they decide their leaders by hand to hand combat. Well, I guess since they're black that makes sense right? You put them in this futuristic environment that they've created and eliminated scarcity and other societal ails and they're still using violence to make their biggest decisions. That's bullshit tbh. It seems to say that even if black people can manage to advance themselves and evolve, we'll always be primitive hut dwellers who choose an alpha in the same way that apes do.

F) Don't listen to Malcolm X, this is the most grievous and blatant of them all.

I just don't see anything worth idolizing in it and I find it odd that nobody cares to notice these things that are pretty glaring. I guess people have their blinders on? Blinders that reflexively make you attack anyone you perceive as a threat to your beautiful symbol of stagnation and compliance. I have more grievances but I'm done. But please don't let me ruin for you what was essentially a trash movie that reinforced harmful stereotypes and through movie magic and good PR transformed historical methods of oppression into progress. And of course, the status quo is ok. Don't rock the boat by doing anything drastic!

A) That's not true. T'challa's girlfriend also makes that argument.

B) See A. Also Killmonger successfully convinces them to be less isolationist and to spread their wealth in poor black communities.

C) See B. Also I'm not sure how making the pre-revelation regressive conservative monarch more "likable" would have made this is a more "revolutionary" movie. Killmonger being so much more charismatic and dynamic than T'challa arguably makes it easier to present his point of view to the audience as valid.

D) Only white people are allowed to take depressing historical realities from their cultural past and reclaim them as stories of hope and empowerment, apparently. Stories about Africa must be 100% sad 100% of the time, and if any uppity blacks try to creatively squeeze some whimsy out of their historical struggle then indignant whites on the internet are here to tell them how to feel. John Henry is a folktale that turned a tragic story of racially segregated forced labor and class exploitation into inspiring tales of a cool dude who used the tools of his oppression to do cool things. Are you going to say black kids are wrong for finding inspiration in that, too?

E) Asgard is super advanced yet all they seem to do all day is get drunk and hit each other with melee weapons. Sakaar is super advanced yet they still have Iron Age-style gladiator matches, also with melee weapons. These kinds of anachronisms and contradictions are very common in science fiction, you just don't seem to notice it until black people do it. Also you're starting to let the mask slip at the end there, reign it in a little.

F) ...it's a Disney movie about a man who dresses like a cat. It's not going to command the audience to start an armed revolution. Working-class antifascist Steve Rogers nevers turns to the camera and says to seize the means of production, did that also bother you?

I don't think you're arguing out of good faith. I think you're trying to be clever by owning the leftists with their own logic and subtly sneak in your real feelings along the way. Because if you were arguing out of good faith, then that would mean that you expect consuming Disney products to he good revolutionary praxis.

And that would be retarded.

This is all completely true and a fine point to make. Wakanda's an alt-right paradise.
That said:
>I don't remember them questioning their conservative nature either.
That's sort of the arc of the movie. It's T'Challa coming to realize that Wakanda IS a bit shitty in political terms, and resolving to subvert it. Wakanda's isolationism is what effectively creates Killmonger and puts the entire world at risk. The movie ends with them joining the UN & establishing an outreach program in black communities.
Granted it's a cheap tacked-on resolution but that's what a sequel is for. This movie was about establishing the old ways that need moved away from.

>They portray the only person that wants to do good with what they have as a psychopath
m8, he wanted to incite a worldwide race war. Literal unambiguous white genocide.
History's greatest monsters all wanted to do good. And the movie acknowledges that he ultimately has a solid point, underneath all of the reprehensible methods. That realization is what galvanizes T'Challa to make long-overdue changes to Wakandan society. BLACK PANTHER 2 COMING TO AMERICA TICKETS ON SALE NOW!

>I couldn't put my finger on it. And I didn't realize it until I just started thinking about it more now.

That said, >>403964 is brimming with good points that only really hold up if you've not got to the end of the movie and seen the resolution. It's like criticizing Star Wars for glorifying fascism because you turned it off before the Rebel attack and assumed the Empire just wins. Which is a shame, because those ARE some good points he's making when you separate them from the literal ignorance behind why they're being made. Hell the first part kinda sums up why there's a WWE Hall of Famer in the White House. SpaceLeia was fine tho I don't get why there's even a controversy

THAT said, D) is a a brilliant counterargument and should always be kept in mind regarding this movie. Reality's shitty. Fiction idealizes it. That's universal and color-blind. Wakanda dindu nuffin different to whitey's mythologizing of the Wild West.
One could argue that it should have, since we now "know better" than to sugarcoat history's atrocities & life's hardships, but IMO that's moving the goalposts and unbalancing the standards. True equality is being allowed the same irresponsibilities & guilty pleasures as the majority-audience equivalent.
Although comparing Asgard & Sakaar to Wakanda is a bit of a false equivalency. They're literal alien cultures developed on entirely separate planets by innately different physiological-beings, not African-ism on Earth by humans.

>That's sort of the arc of the movie. It's T'Challa coming to realize that Wakanda IS a bit shitty in political terms, and resolving to subvert it.
Offering the smallest possible feel-good concessions to hold on to power and avoid any real change is the shittiest possible way to avoid a revolution.
I can only hope Black Panther 2 acknowledges that there would have been no changes at all without Killmonger, and there will be no further changes if they're not backed by an existential threat to those who must enact them.
Fuck sake, the movie's called "Black Panther", it can afford to be at least a little revolutionary.

>That's sort of the arc of the movie. It's T'Challa coming to realize that Wakanda IS a bit shitty in political terms, and resolving to subvert it.
That's somewhat ambiguous, as it wasn't specified that the arms would only be going to western countries, and the ruling class in Africa are black.
I interpreted it as a proletarian revolution rather than a racial one.

expecting anything made by Disney to be revolutionary is unwise

lol i cant believe i read this whole thread. i watched the movie like a week ago and i thought it was really great. what stood out the most to me was the beautiful attention to detail in the cinematography of each scene. i typically refer to this genre as "capeshit" and dont watch any of the super hero movies, but a friend with good taste told me this one was worth watching so i did. i also liked the main villain having a valid argument, as did apparently many people. i think in 2018 we're a little overdue for a successful hollywood film of this caliber with predominantly black cast. the comedy was also infrequent enough as to not be annoying. one thing i was a little disappointed by was the lack of a closing wakanda scene where all the different tribes get their blessings/demerits from the king or whatever. all we got was a short shot of him walking into the throne room. another disappointer was the UN scene where someone is like "lol what can farmer nation do" and t'challa and his gf just give each other a "knowing look", like wtf i was really expecting them to demo some insane technology, but nope, scene ends.

so there were a few moments i would say i would prefer to have been different for my own movie tastes but overall it was a very good movie, i would say like 8.5/10
