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

Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I-X5WnMzOvA

My Review:
Having had my eye on this film for a while I was la when Netflix brought it on the service and I could finally see this especially with it having Dwayne Johnson and Vince Vaughn in it. Being also asked to review this film I thought it would be a good opportunity to do both of these at the same time. This is a film I never noticed was a biography movie before seeing it and I thought was good for showing more about the wrestler Paige.

I enjoyed how this film showed how a girl from England first got into wrestling and how it was her dream to be in the WWE and got given the opportunity. By also showing how she goes throu…

About: The dramatic story of the cutthroat race between electricity titans Thomas Edison and George Westinghouse to determine whose electrical system would power the modern world
Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kue18AxK1tU

My Review:
Having wanted to see The Current War since it was in the cinema after seeing how it had an incredible cast of actors in which I already like I knew I had to see it once it came onto DVD. Not only this but not knowing much about the electricity feud this was a subject in which I found myself really interested in which made me enjoy this film a lot more than I had expected.

I thought that it was good how it showed the rivalry between both Edison and Westinghouse and how Edison was willing to tarnish his name in order to get ahead and even go against his own beliefs in order to try and win the…

Fred Claus (film review) *contains spoilers*

Year: 2007
Genre: Comedy, Family, Fantasy
Directed By: David Dobkin
Starring: Vince Vaughn, Paul Giamatti, Elizabeth Banks
About: Fred Claus, Santa's bitter older brother, is forced to move to the North Pole to help Santa and the elves prepare for Christmas in exchange for cash.
Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VzXjtxZaGS8

My Review:
Over the Christmas period I decided to watch some films that I hadn't previously seen before and one of those being Fred Claus I thought that this was different to other Christmas movies as it focus' on Santa's brother rather than on Santa himself but also on how to keep Christmas alive and not have it closed down. By having Vince Vaughn as the main character in this I had good expectations for this movie as I generally enjoy everything in which I have seen him in.

I thought that Fred Claus was good in how it showed how Nicholas became a saint and how he is able to be Santa with the family not being able to age as a resul…
