“Ultimately, I think it might have been the third-best comic book movie of 2018.”
It’s Oscars season and we’re reviewing the Academy’s big category picks. ‘Black Panther’ (starring Chadwick Boseman and Michael B. Jordan) is directed by Ryan Coogler and has nominations for Best Picture and more.
After the death of his father, T’Challa returns home to the African nation of Wakanda to take his rightful place as king. When a powerful enemy suddenly reappears, T’Challa’s mettle as king — and as Black Panther — gets tested when he’s drawn into a conflict that puts the fate of Wakanda and the entire world at risk. Faced with treachery and danger, the young king must rally his allies and release the full power of Black Panther to defeat his foes and secure the safety of his people.
We put the movie through our critically acclaimed rating system, which grades based on four categories:
1. Did we like it?
2. How did everyone look?
3. Will we steal stuff from it?
4. Is it problematic?

- A lot of depth for superhero movie
- Great pace & just a fun-ass movie
