Ragnarok has already come out?

It was the best Thor movie by far.

Yep. I made the purchase. It'll be $34 when SD is available on March 6. I paid $49 and got all three.

I already got the first two on BR, I guess I'm gonna wait till its BR hits in March. The movie was legit!

Just tried to watch Raganark and told me 10 days. So I'm watching Incredible Hulk with Ed Norton instead

RE: The movie thread
The Legend of Drunken Master / dvd
--While the original was good for learning what the hell drunken kung fu was, this one was a better movie all the way through.

Star Trek / BR
--I really loved the first movie from the new cast when they brought back the franchise.

Sinbad: The 5th Voyage / NF
--trash. I am not sure what its deal was supposed to be but they didn't really do it right with modern pseudo old school stop motion for the bad guys.

Fifty Shades Freed / theater
--Wanted to see how the trilogy ended. I wonder if her books gave more details but the "villians" in this and the "associations" Grey had just led me to believe there was a lot more afoot in the background of his character and his family. One of the cool revelations seemed to critical but once it was said they didn't do much with its possibilities. I liked it as the finality of the trilogy but some stuff really left me hanging.

Baywatch / BR
--Honestly not a bad modern take on the old show and the cameos worked from the older cast. I think the cast worked together well and some of the barbs being tossed around were pretty funny. I think they pulled off the r rated humor much better than that Dukes of Hazard remake going R rated.

RE: The movie thread
Shaft goes to Africa / dvd
--Interesting that in the 70s that human trafficking was a plot in a movie. And in one of the most pro-Black movie franchises/characters of all time they put Shaft in play to help bring down the trafficking ring.

Black Panther / theater
---not bad but won't say more till others see it.

Saw Black Panther yesterday.

Thought is was pretty good. Decent action, great effects, but nit as much pure humor as most of the other Marvel flicks.

Now to the 800# Gorilla.....

I didn't think it's "political" message was as apparent as some were making out. I thought they were definitely trying to push various viewpoints, but did a decent job of presenting many sides to a difficult argument.

Keeping that in mind, let's not forget that Wakanda ISN'T REAL. It's a fake land from a comic book, so let's not try and use it as a "symbol" of anything other than entertainment.

The only politics I got from it was the dealings with the 5 tribes of Wakanda. Also, with what happened on the prior king's watch to certain people that when the new king started finding out stuff and started seeing how certain factions were reacting to him taking over he learned there were a lot more agendas that he didn't know about.

While I agree with the bolded, someone wrote a thesis about how Black Panther emulated Haiti after they kicked the French out. Their are many who see the movie as some kind of wish fulfillment.

The comic book canon of Wakanda / Black Panther or the movie? I can't say I know enough about the French in Haiti but the movie sure didn't feel like it was a history lesson. I mean that almost seems a little Thor/ Norse Mythology in some way. Not discounting it as it could be true.... just I don't see it.

Just the movie. I’m doubtful of anyone espousing resident knowledge about the comic book

RE: The movie thread
Every time a movie comes out someone claims some type of agenda. The Force Awakens, people were hoping Finn and Poe would be a couple, I mean forget the flirting Finn did with Rey.

Finding Dory, there's claims of a lesbian couple and the sting ray is having a sex change.

Live action Beauty and the Beast there's a gay scene.

I've seen all three and thought nothing of what people are trying to push. Maybe it's because I enjoy seeing a movie and I'm more worried about being entertained than political overtones.

I plan on seeing this one. Just don't know if I'll go to the theaters or wait til I can rent it.
