    Went on opening night in Oakland. Folks were showing out, including me.

    A fun movie and, culturally, it's great to see everyone so excited about it!

    I'm in love with M'Baku played by Winston Duke. If only the vegetarians I knew all looked like that!

    *SPOILERS*


    Thoroughly enjoyed the film when I saw it. A few things though, Shuri and the 'coloniser' - it did disturb me a bit that she just showed him all the secrets of Wakanda like that - I know the Wakandans are confident and all, but he's still the agent of a foreign power who he could so easily just report everything back to - ALSO, along the same vein, the whole saving T'Challa with the plant bit - couldn't he (the MI5 agent) have waited outside in the foyer or something?! I mean, really!

    Although I do think the Wakandans should have thought more about their brothers/sisters in sharing some of their wealth and knowledge (a la Nakia), considering the way of the world as we know it I can see why the Wakandans did keep it to themselves ... to a certain degree.

    I do not see Kilmonger as some sort of hero (I get his argument - but he's a killer and a warmongerer - like his name, go figure! He's a bitter, angry, broken soul who wouldn't have brought any good to the world). Some people mention a MLK and Malcolm X correlation - and yes, to a shallow degree. Malcolm had more development - Kilmonger is nowhere near his level. But the African/African-American relationship being addressed was important.

    The opening up Wakanda to the world Kumbaya ending was an appeasement to white audiences, imo. The cynical me was just thinking how they would all just try to infiltrate and gain control of the resources by hook or by crook ... Fling a few white women at the men in power, get perplexed when it didn't work how they expected (since Wakanda hasn't been influenced by the western media), and then try another way in, lol!

    Loved the range and depth and motivations of the characters, and that the women all had different and equally appealing roles... yea... I did love Shuri's character - 'What are THOSE?!' lol!

    I miss y'all !

    I'm swamped for time and as much as I would love to sit down and pen a love letter to Black Panther I just don't have the time to put in to words how powerful this film is. It brought tears to my eyes during and since. It made me realizing what we're missing out on. The power of imagination is incredible.

    Yes @Bejewelle, the chummy relationship between the Wakandans and the colonizer along with the film's ending had me going: is American foreign policy not studied in Wakanda? Oh wait, this is still Hollywood, my bad.

    Can't wait to see it again, this time with the local Black community! Me and my fam were the only Black people in the theater the first time I saw it and I think it's going to make a difference.

    The chummy behavior gives them TONS of storyline options for Black Panther II: Wakanda Against the World.

    So is there a thread about a Wrinkle in Time? I just saw that one tonight too.
