Black PAnther Wakanda Forever 2022

Post by catsi563 »

AKAZING MOVIE one of ig NOT the best of the MCU movies out there easy top 5 if its not


So much went into it that its nigh impossible to list it all. Namor was Spectacular to watch in action and so was his kingdom

the death of Chadwick Boseman was played respectfully and really played into the story well.

all told it was well done and i highly recommend it to all

I loved that they did not go for the usual " Atlantis" backdrop for Namor. Also, once again, a " villain" with wholly understandable motives. Was really worth my time and money and I am getting the Blu-Ray once it comes out. The effects were, once again, fantastic.

What I will never get used to, however, is the translation of " Wakanda Forever" (not the film title, that was unchanged), the warcry of the Wakandans.
Here in Germany, they translated it to " Wakanda über alles!" (Wakanda above all) instead of the literal " Wakanda für immer/Wakanda auf ewig!"
" Deutschland, Deutschland über alles" (Germany above all) is the original first line of our national hymn which was truncated for obvious reasons when reason returned to our country. The first stanza of our anthem is only sung by right-wing extremists and outright neo-Nazis.
What the eff, guys? I cringe every time I hear them yell " Wakanda über alles!"

:shock: Criiiiiipes. That's way past tone deaf.

Okay movie, but way too long and trying to do too much. The twist on the Submariner story was clever and unexpected. I'm relieved that hints about Doom showing up here turn out to have been hot air. I'd give it a flat B, compared to the first one's A+.

I've not seen it but a majority of the comments I've read/seen have said that the first part of the movie where the character's are mourning T'Challa's death is great but almost everything following (story, script, characterisation etc.) is disappointing and that the movie is at least an hour too long. No, actually not everything, they pretty much all praise Angela Bassett.

just my own two cents but i thought it was well worth the three hours and the pacing was very good so it doesnt even feel like 3 hours worth.

Angela Basett was truly an Oscar worthy performance

And as to the rest all i can say is it was highly enjoyable they brought the stories together into a cohesive whole and it all comes together nicely,

well worth a watch
