My mini-review for Black Panther.

Short version: nice. Good flick. The wife and I had an excellent time watching it, then we went out for beer and meatballs. Which has nothing to do with Black Panther, but they were excellent meatballs and I like the current seasonal Sam Adams.

Slightly longer version: very, very, very good supporting cast. Good story, excellent villain, plenty of things blowing up and being flipped and being hit with super-technological melee weapons. The set design and costuming was, to go with the cliche, gorgeous. And, again, marvelous supporting cast. You should have fun at this movie.

PS: Note, not perfect. They killed off a perfectly good villain again, although that’s just one of Marvel’s little ways.  It’s also not immediately obvious how the villain managed to move all over the globe so quickly without super-technology. But those are relative quibbles.

    I wonder how much more ink is in the money printers at Disney. There’s the Star Wars ink tank, the Marvel ink tank, the Pixar ink tank…

      The Star Wars ink tank is still producing, but there are some hints that there might be less ink in that tank as time goes on.

        Yeah, the rumblings for the upcoming Solo movie haven’t looked good.


        And one of my complaints about Last Jedi is that it felt more like setup for a bunch of spin-off movies for various characters rather than a movie in its own right.

        Last movie we went to in the Theater: Guardians II

        Cost of four tickets for the family is prohibitive, and in four months we can see it for free from the library or on legal cable/internet.

        And the longer we go without going, the less we see a need to go back.

        Will I eventually see Thor, and Justice League, and Black P and the others – probably. But the price and over-marketing superlative-saturation is distasteful. So no monies from us for them. Good job, Hollywood.

          I do have the advantage that movies are seen in my household as mostly being Dad’s Excuse For Getting Out Of The House. So I can go see one on the relative cheap.

          I’ve been to the movie theater once in the last 10 years. The movie was “Wonder”, and I got paid to watch it. Actually, I was paid to accompany a special-needs student who went as part of a school function. Other than that, I wait for the DVD.

    Good Meatballs are something to be treasured.

    Glad to hear this doesn’t suck.

    As you say: it’s a good ‘un.
