Throwback Friday: A Spoiler-Free Review of ‘Black Panther’

It’s always fun to look back at old movie reviews because at that time the movie in question was still so fresh in my mind. Such as this one. Black Panther wowed moviegoers around the world and this spoiler-free review that I wrote roughly nine months ago proves how incredible this movie truly was and is.

And that’s why it’s part of this weekly segment of Throwback Friday. I hope you enjoy.

I watched Black Panther yesterday and I’m still reveling in how good the movie was. In fact, I watched Captain America: Civil War last night, which is something I haven’t done in over a year, because Black Panther was so great I wanted to look back at how T’Challa was introduced into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. And the movie had such an impact on me I woke up still thinking about brilliantly fantastic the film was.

Because those prequels didn’t give the backstory of Anakin Skywalker any justice when I finally did see Darth Vader in the classic trilogy of Star Wars he wasn’t as intimidating as he should’ve been.

Finally, with the help of Disney, I think he will truly become the beloved, scary, iconic villain we have all been waiting to enjoy again. I mean who can compete with “No, I am your father.” Definitely one of the best and most jaw-dropping lines in movie history. Of course, Darth Vader isn’t the only reason why I’m excited for Rogue One but he’s definitely a large part of my enthusiasm to see this film.
