If you haven’t already purchased your tickets for Black Panther, you are going to miss the movie of a lifetime.

Why is this the movie of a lifetime? Let me tell you.

Last night, I witnessed what I feel will be one of the best films of 2018! Thanks to local stations, Hot 104.1 and 95.5’s advanced screening, I was able to enjoy what I know will break box offices for the next few weekends. Before the show, Boogie D gave us a little history as to how the movie came about, and how the Black Panther character was developed. This increased the excitement for me and the crowd waiting in anticipation.

Once the movie began, from beginning to end I was entertained, wowed, and even a little sad Wakanda doesn’t exist. It kind of reminded me of when I first saw Coming To America, and for years I wondered what it would be like to go to Zamunda. That’s how dope it was.

As Black Panther prepares to make its cinematic debut this week, I can say without a doubt it will go down as one of my favorite superhero movies.

With Black Panther being the first black superhero movie from the Marvel franchise, I was a little nervous. But, they did us proud! 

Not only was I ecstatic to see the immense amount of African American representation, I was proud to sit in front of a screen and see us portrayed in such a positive manner.

Now don’t get me wrong, like every superhero movie, you must have a villain. But even the villain’s backstory developed into a positive spin and message.

From the fashion, to the actors and actresses, nothing was left untouched and underdeveloped. Whether it was the men or women, each character exuded their own level of strength. Marvel managed to convey royalty, history and life lessons within it making the film even more astounding.

And let’s not leave out the soundtrack, curated by Kendrick Lamar featuring a slew of new and veteran artists.

I won’t spoil the movie, but I can say this, expect to be fully entertained.
