Black Panther (film review)

Film: Black Panther
Year: 2018
Genre: Action, Adventure, Sci-fi
Starring: Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong'o
About: T'Challa, the King of Wakanda, rises to the throne in the isolated, technologically advanced African nation, but his claim is challenged by a vengeful outsider who was a childhood victim of T'Challa's father's mistake

My Review: 
As a lover of Marvel comics and superhero films this really excited me having Black Panther finally as a hero which will be recognised by everyone as one of their own and joining the Avengers. With a lot of hype about this film as well I wanted to see if it lived up to it and why this was being called the first of it's kind for a black superhero movie when there is previous black hero's.

As this film follows T'Challa gets to become king of Wakanda you see the struggle in which he is having letting go of his father and not really understanding how to run his country. As well as this you are seeing a group of people who are willing to lose everything for his country by selling technology on which hasn't been seen by the people outwith Wakanda. As this develops you realise that one of those people are T'Challa's cousin and he tries his best to sort out the problems in which this has made for his ruling and becoming the Black Panther.

I think this film is very unique and a film I am glad is getting a lot of praise and getting a lot of publicity, not just as a Marvel movie but also as a superhero film on it's own account. As this is a film that only has two white characters within it and aren't made out to be the make and break of the film, although are key characters. With a lot of films also making everything about white people or making it so they are key it is amazing to see that finally black people have something that is for them and takes into account their history as well. As well as this the film seems to celebrate Africa as a country and doesn't change it into something it isn't and stays true to the tribes which there are making this film even better in my eyes. Making this the first black superhero movie of it's kind and I really hope that this is the first of many.

As well  as this the film is really good as a Marvel movie with the likes of car chases, the advances technology, humor, action and even some romance making this the film in which all Marvel fans were wanting. With the humor not being forced and making sense with the story as well as making the audience on the edge of their seats.

I highly recommend giving this film a watch wither you are a Marvel fan or not as this is so much more than just a Marvel film and is more a celebration of the African culture. I also can't wait till Black Panther is back again in Avengers: Infinity War later on this year! Also remember to stay around till the very end of the credits for the extra scene!

I honestly can't fault this film at all as it really does have everything that a film needs and wants from a Marvel film as well as standing alone perfectly by itself and not needing to know anything about the Marvel universe before this.

My Rating: 5/5

My Review:
Wanting a style of film I don't usually watch but do enjoy I decided to watch the stalker movie that is My Teacher, My Obsession which is based on an English teacher who starts at a new school. However, when one of the students gets obsessed with him she will do anything to be with him including secluding him from everyone else.

I liked the foreshadowing at the beginning of the movie which matched up to the ending very well and shows how throughout the movie that this was coming up. I also liked how the film showed how the student was getting close to…

My Review:
Being a movie I discovered years ago and completely fell in love with to the point it is one of my favourite movies of all time, I was excited to see that they had finally put this on Netflix so that others could discover it and love it as much as myself. As a result I thought I would re-watch Snowpiercer and give it a review which is fun for me as it is a film in which I really enjoy and feel is very underrated.

I love how this film begins by showing you how the passengers who are on the train that goes around the world are the only survivors of the human race. By doing this it shows how key the train …

My Review:
Having spent a lot of my teenage years watching She's The Man I thought I would give it a watch as I hadn't seen it in a while and loved this film all over again. I love how this film although being about football and being something I am not interested in brings it to an enjoyable place for me as well as having the comedy and romance side to keep me fully entertained.

Having the film show how the girls team was cut from Viola's school and showing how she just wanted to play and would have played on the boy's team showed h…
