For those that know me and the Wifey, you’ve known for some time now how much we love the Marvel Universe, the Comics, the Movies, etc. We have made a point to go see every movie the Studio releases, regardless of if we have a babysitter or not. We find a way d**?&*!!!!!!!!
The latest record breaking blockbuster release happens to be one of our New Favorites!!!!!
Ever since the BP, The Black Panther, aka T’Challa, made his debut appearance in Captain American Civil War, I knew something truly special was happening. This is addition to what Marvel has already created. Just take a moment to reflect on all the build up that took place before the release. You had people reserving multiple tickets, renting out theaters for kids, buying BP/Wakanda shirts, plus dashiki sales were through the roof!!!!!!
When was the last time you saw Instagram and Facebook, flooded with posts of people wearing dashiki’s and African Garbs in groups?
My Trip to Wakanda started with thinking about the perfect way to become a part of this movement. The only way I could think to represent these days is with a nice Tee. Instead of running around to stores like a jack rabbit waiting for the store clerks to tell me they don’t have my size, the Wifey and I hopped online in search of a masterpiece.
We had to throw it back a bit so hopefully you like it……….
As far as the actual movie, it’s definitely a powerful story which demonstrates strong Black Excellence. You had the strong female presence on one end, where these Wakanda Warriors displayed an exceptional amount of loyalty to the “Realm” while looking like Bad Asses in the process. All the money in the world couldn’t convince me to battle with these ladies. On the other end the Men of Wakanda illustrated strong Alpha Males amongst the Supreme Alpha in T’Challa. Then you include a mastermind in T’Challa’s sister Shuri, who seems to be much wiser then her age reflects. Just look at all the neat gadgets she’s created. She’s light years ahead of Tony Stark and his arsenal.
This is a Marvel Movie that was well written, produced and directed. Black Panther is probably one of the most expensive budgets in history which features an all Black Cast, Director and Film Crew.
They say behind every good man is a strong women, whether or not you believe this is another story for another time. This movie definitely did a good job at backing up this claim, although some would say that there even if you take the good man out the equation, that Strong Women will always be there.
Once the movie ended and the credits began to roll, I felt very inspired by what I just saw. Oh, make sure you stay for the end credit scenes as well. I just wanted to let you in on that little secret!!!!!!!!!
Hopefully everyone that see’s this movie leaves the theater with an appreciation of this extended addition to the Marvel Universe.. From the Hero’s to the Villians, which by the way Killmonger and Ulysses klaw in my opinion were pretty “good” villains. If you pay attention to Killmongers story and some of the dialogue his character uses, he’s not really a “the” villain but maybe something else. I feel like he was almost completely justified in why he did what he did, he may have just gone about it the wrong way.(Maybe)
Let me know your thoughts about that little theory.
Anyway, go see this movie if you haven’t already. Let us know who’s your favorite character. If you happen to take a pic, make sure you tag Sande on Instagram so we can check out your “Wakandan Garb”.
