[10 Years of the MCU]
(Directed by Ryan Coogler, 2018)
Now to our current year, and starting with the one that people wouldn't stop cheering for the duration of the first credits . This one in particular was a surreal experience in theatres. You know one of those that you watch in the right place and the right moment in time, and it's so much better than when you re-watch it. I've found loads of people nitpicking plot holes and who just frankly didn't pay attention or listen to what the film is or trying to say. Because as heavy handed as it can get, most of the inner conflict is perfectly alluded to and requires a lot of understanding and especially empathy. And that is something that Marvel did with this in a way I had never felt. Yes, I had teared up with other films of theirs, but never for the antagonist, which is almost a crime to call him a villain. As I'm going to discuss this film in more detail later because it's one of my favorites of the year so far, now I just wanted to share my absolute infatuation with everything is and represents, more so when it came out. Hearing the killer original tracks from the album on the radio, people talking about it, actually acknowledging the achievement and well deserved success that this was, and especially the screening. Oh my goodness, the energy in that place felt so special. It's normal for opening weekend MCU screenings to be fun and packed, because let's face it, that's the primary reason they're designed to be the way they are and why they do so well. The much welcome demonstration of *actual restraint with comedy and quips made the few jokes better, and especially the uncommonly stoic protagonist who doesn't act like a man-child. The smiles came rather from the spectacular Afro-futurist rendition of Wakanda and its culture, shown in sets, score, dialogue, and story. Leaving room to feel the weight of the conflicts and dark history, to understand the world and character motivations better.
