I agree. I think it was overhyped, but it was still really good.

Let's be honest... a big reason it made so much is because it is the first black superhero and that drew in tons of that demographic to watch it.

it was also big news here in the SF Bay Area since the director is from Oakland and directed Fruitvale Station.

Saw it the other day on the plane. Confused why this movie is so popular. It's average at best. Maybe it would be better if I saw it on a screen that's barely bigger than my phone?

its not the first black superhero movie. It’s the first predominantly black cast for a mainstream multi million dollar budget film. It is a big deal and it was really well done. From the music to the storyline to the acting. It’s very layered.

Well.. the only one I can think of that comes close is Blade, which was awesome (first one). I assume Meteor Man or Steel isn't in discussion. But this movie, with the roll Marvel has been on, is on a whole new level.

Finished watching it just now. I agree with you. It was good, but it wasn't amazing like people and reviews made it out to be.

97% for Tomatometer. 79% for audience score. I'm going to side with the audience score.

Wife and I watched it last night finally. Definitely was left with an underwhelmed feeling. It was not a bad movie, but it was most definitely hyped up to be better then what I saw. I do not care about the fact it was a predominantly all black cast. I think it was cast very well, all the actors fit their roles well, but I just look at movies as the end product, not who is involved. At the end of the day, it was a decent movie but not the best ever as some led me to believe.

It was a good fun movie, but "Best Picture" good?

Oscars: ‘Black Panther’ Becomes First Superhero Movie Ever Nominated for Best Picture

January 22, 2019

Tuesday morning, 10 years after Christopher Nolan’s “The Dark Knight” forced a significant paradigm shift at the Academy Awards, a superhero movie was finally nominated for best picture: Marvel’s “Black Panther.” And it represents a fairly remarkable culmination.

The move from five best picture nominees to 10 (later altered to a system that can produce anywhere from five to 10) was largely owed to the Motion Picture Academy’s infamous dismissal of “The Dark Knight” in 2008. The goal was to find room for deserving popular films in the lineup, and as one of the biggest critical hits of its year, with major recognition from the producers, directors, and writers guilds, Nolan’s Batman sequel certainly qualified.

The change helped, at least at first. Movies like “District 9,” “Up,” “Inception,” and “Toy Story 3” arguably owed their best picture bids to the expanded field. Soon, however, the wide berth gave way for more of the usual while films like “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2,” “Skyfall,” “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” “Inside Out,” and “Wonder Woman” were left on the sidelines.

That ongoing status quo eventually led to the Academy’s ill-fated push for a “popular Oscar” award last year. But it was clearly the wrong year to do it, given the presence of popular contenders like “Bohemian Rhapsody,” “A Star Is Born” and, indeed, “Black Panther.”

With $700 million in domestic box office receipts, Ryan Coogler’s Marvel juggernaut became the third-highest grossing film of all time on these shores. Worldwide it has accumulated north of $1.3 billion. Its nomination makes it the third-highest grossing best picture nominee ever, behind James Cameron’s “Avatar” and “Titanic.”

Mebbe just mebbe, this is their way of getting even for the Moonlight-Lala-Land fiasco?


They'll accidentally name BP as the Best Pic only to take it away to give it to the gwai-ro-movie.

Pretty soon, Miz, we'll be THOSE seniors with our pants hiked up nipple-height and we're semi-hunched over. And wearing a vest.
