#1 It's gonna be great, because we say it it's gonna be great!

#2 Is it true that Rotten Tomatoes does not allow any negative reviews of it - because negative reviews would be 'racist'?

No wonder it received 100%.

#3 I liked Blade because I think Wesley Snipes is a good actor. I don't dig the whole vampire thing, though. In contrast, these assholes are trying to sell you something other than a solid actor(s), interesting plot and / or great action, and that substitute is leftism shoved down our throats one more time. This is also evident in the comments section - the comments 'awaiting moderation' (i.e., not shown unless you click on them) are all critical of the movie, mostly from the political angle. I hope they lose at least $50 million from this one.

#4 One other thing - there are few movies in the 95% - 100% Rotten Tomatoes score. Check them out here. I can't believe they're trying to compare this very potential box office trainwreck with Citizen Kane, The Godfather, etc. Even Terminator 2 got 93% or 95%. It's a sick kale-fueled joke.

#5 When they have to lie about it that hard, you know it will probably be sheit.

Now it is easy to tell what not to see if the left kook lobotomized parrots like it.

#6 Unfortunately it doesn't take much to stir up the pot smoking BLM types. And Bollywood is over ripe for this kind of rot. (Apologies to Bollywood, I meant Hollywood.)

#7 It looks like a blacksploitation film with a big sci-fi special effects budget.

IronShaft?

#8 The political babblings of many of the superhero movie actors are even more noxious than the garden variety Hollywood actor pronouncements swill. These franchise movies are the most reliable moneymakers these days and the audience is regrettably prime for the political nonsense.

#9 Me and The Mussus used to spend at least one afternoon a weekend at the moving pictures.

Now, not so much.

#10 a hidden lost world in Africa defined by royal traditions and technological wonders

In other words, a fantasy.

#11 In other words, a fantasy.

Ah, so mom will be able to go to the basement for some cleaning while the target audience is at the movies.

#12 Cultural affirmation for the urban mobs. Laura Ingalls Wilder is so yesterday.

#13 Raj, I liked Blade because the world building, it was a refreshing take on how things might go if Vampires were real.

#14 "a hidden lost world in Africa defined by royal traditions and technological wonders"

One has to wonder why they don't use those technological wonders to improve the lives of Africans. But of course Black Panther is a King or something and the nations treasury is his own personal trust fund to spend at will, at least that part is believable.

#15 Blacks in America have been told for generations that Africa would have been the greatest continent, greatest technology etc, if it hadn't been for the whites. They fully believe this, and now that the Egyptians have repeatedly popped their bubble about building the pyramids etc, they needed a new...seed for their delusions.

None of the actual Africans I have worked with have had this illusion. They often hold American blacks in total comtempt at squandering their fortune to be born American. They don't like socializing with them at all either.

#16 Point of order:
Isn't Black Panther a Americas/New World species/term?

If we are Africa, should we not be Black Leopard or something?

And boy we hit the clich├ęs. Gal with afro - check, gal with shaved head - check, gal with African chapeau or hair style - check.

What are we missing? Richard Roundtree as the elder king?

This isn't honorary or even inclusive, this is Undercover Brother for comic books.
