Oscar Watch: Black Panther (2018)
Just getting in another viewing of the movie. Still stunned by the world building, well-written characters with top-flight talent to bring them to life, and how the challenge of the "villain" informs the protagonist to be a better man and king. First class storytelling, and in a superhero movie no less. What it were that more of these superhero movies understood the power of a great ensemble script and cast.
As much as Star Wars or Harry Potter drops you in a universe and you fall into it immediately, so, too, does Black Panther. Anyhoo... here's to their chances on Oscar night, and I look forward to whatever they do next for a follow-up.
