    Yeah... I didn't really like the movie that much. The highest compliment I can give it is the third act's emotional beats being decent. That's really it. A lot of the jokes were dumb, and not even the fun kind of dumb, and the emotional conflicts felt contrived, rushed, or treated with too much levity to get invested.

    I'm half an hour into watching Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. And as a fan of the first film, I have to say... most of the humor is pretty dumb and contrived. Only one or two jokes and some small things are alright, but... a lot of these jokes are so dumb. That's the only way I can describe what I'm feeling. I hope it improves soon.

    I liked the sneakers scene too. One of the few times humor worked in a Marvel movie, instead of some mainstream pop culture reference (then again, Klaue's sound cloud joke was okay too lol). Probably because I felt like it said a lot about the sibling relationship. How they support each other but also rib on each other as well. They felt real and human. The humor was character-driven.Yeah, a black revolution makes sense. But that sounds a bit like the Black Panther Party. How ironic lol.

    Nobody is sure why Kilmonger let Klaue live that long. Although I feel like they could have easily made an explanation if they tried. Like Klaue having clues and resources about where Wakanda is. And maybe Kilmonger's dad working with Klaue to get back to Wakanda (I think elder guy mentions that in one line, but they never focus on that). I don't know why, but I don't like the idea of him being completely cut from the film.

    Killmonger's theme is great. I used to think his name sounds dumb at first when the movie was announced, but it's surprisingly grown on me.



    Ross is fine, I just feel like he's... there in the second half. Almost like he was a token white guy lol.

    Waterfall fight is great. Although it could have used less cuts.

    I agree with a 7-8 rating.

    Oh. That is inconsistent then.

    I didn't mind the vegetarian joke that much. It was a bit funny, but I can see how it felt forced. Although it fit how he has a gorilla theme, and gorillas are soften thought to be savage when they're actually peaceful herbivores. But I'm giving that joke too much credit.

    Yeah, that angle was out of nowhere and dumb. What you said would have been better. I also wish we knew a bit more about what Kilmonger's father was doing with all those weapons.

    It's too bad because I love the idea of the final fight taking place in that Vibranium mine. It could have been the best superhero fight ever. So much wasted potential. I was also expecting T'Challa to fight a super powered Kilmonger without getting his powers back. Not that I'm angry that didn't happen, but it could've been cool. Especially if he had to rely on tech and the Vibranium mine hazards.

    Also, I felt that Ross (white guy) was just there in the second half of the movie. I like his role before then as being a U.S. agent that had his own obligations and pressured T'Challa about risking Wakanda's isolationism. But after he gets healed and orgasms at the Vibranium mine, he just sticks around, helps out a bit, and is the butt of cheap colonialism jokes.

    Wasn't T'Challa the one who said they shouldn't expand while farmer guy said it might be time to? I barely remember their first conversation.

    Yeah, he gad good motivations going on. The final fight could have been better though. Like not wearing extremely similar suits and fighting in more areas than one train track. And don't get me started on the poor lighting obscuring action. The casino and car chase sequences were freaking great though.

    No, I didn't. He was just wise old guy that happened to be a flashback character. He needed more of his relationships to get focus.

    I'd give the film an 8 out of 10. I wouldn't call it exactly great, but it's definitely good and I want to see more superhero films in this style.

    Spoiler:

    The first act of the movie is flawed with how obscure Kilmonger is and Klawe's relationship with him not getting explored enough. With that said, I actually liked his acting. He was bland greedy villain, but I liked how much Serkis owned the "I could care less" sleaziness and having fun being evil.

    I was fine with farmer guy betraying T'Challa. Kilmonger brought in results by actually killing Klaue. He was naive about it, expecting rulers to be infallible instead of flawed humans. But it still flowed well with the script. What bothered me is how he just gave up at the end after how committed he was to killinge everybody enough to summon rhinos into the field. It would work better if his wife wasn't there at first, but he knew she was there the whole time. So changing his mind then is a bit dumb.

    I really liked Shuri and Okoye too. Kilmonger was great. I loved what he represented and how black Michael B. Jordan's acting was in contrast to how formal Wakandans are.

    It was actually a pretty good movie. I definitely rank it was one of the best Marvel films. It's a solid superhero movie with proper stakes, gravitas, memorable supporting characters, meaningful themes, and humor that actually fits without taking away from the seriousness. The plot has flaws, but it's solid for the most part.
