    With the removal of four weeks I think I like Black Panther the best of any Marvel movie

    Black panther is going to pass The Avengers' domestic total next weekend, and while it will almost certainly drop from #1 next weekend, it's the first movie since Avatar to stay #1 for five consecutive weekends.

    It's the second fastest grossing movie of all time, behind only The Force Awakens.

    Once it passes The Avengers, it will be the highest grossing superhero movie of all time. Then Infinity War will come out and that will make more money - and what's crazy is that part of that is because IW is kind of a huge sequel to Black Panther, a movie that came out two months before it.

    A co-worker saw it this weekend and said his showing was all but sold out, so... yeah, damn.

    Ah, it stinks, it sucks, it's anthropologically unjust

    I saw it again this Sunday afternoon

    It was about half-full of people, I was impressed!

    My showing yesterday afternoon was basically sold out. There were like 6 or 7 empty seats in the very front. Was pretty surprised it was still that loaded, but I guess I shouldn't be given that theater was dead sold out for weeks.

    I liked this movie a lot, I think it's my favorite marvel movie. Certainly my favorite in the more serious movies.

    I think if the last fight held up it would absolutely be my favorite

    As it is it's in my top 3, only knocked down because that last fight is actually kind of bad

    The last fight was so, so bad

    The move at the end could have been cool

    I think there's an easy change to make it better
    Still have them fall into the mine, on the train track, because I think these two sons of Wakanda fighting on top of their birthright is a great image

    But then when the train is running, it totally deactivates their suits, so we just get Ritual Combat Round 3, But Now There's A Train

    If only the last fight was just
    Sonic dampeners go up and their suits are removed and they fight shirtless again

    That would be great.

    I would put it somewhere else, but yeah, the CGI is the biggest problem

    And the train is actually the Coors Light Silver Bullet train.

    I seriously thought this is what was going to happen

    but instead it was just sometimes, not all the time

    I wonder if that was some weird executive note? Maybe somebody that could stop the movie dead just kept insisting that you can't end a superhero flick with a fistfight.

    It had to have some limitation.

    I think a big part of my affection for the movie is its aesthetic synergy, where its soundtrack is just as much a part of how the movie establishes its identity as the visual design. And in this movie, that's saying a lot

    Music in most Marvel movies is either enjoyable or legitimately very good; Black Panther crosses over into great music, music that communicates experience and culture more firmly than a Best Mainstream Rock of the 60s-80s collection, no matter how well curated. Every time Killmonger's theme starts playing, or any music about Wakanda that includes the choir chanting "T'CHALLA - T'CHALLA -T'CHALLA"

    That shit can transport you, god damn

    Humor can be dissected as a frog can, but dies in the process.

    It's a great little podcast where the host sits down folks to talk about songs they made

    Usually it's like, pop artists, but occasionally it's a composer for a soundtrack

    He did one with the composer of Black Panther about the making of Killmonger's theme!
