Black Panther (2018)- Wakanda forever

“The Black Panther has been a protector of Wakanda for generations. And now, it is time to show the outside world who we are.” Black Panther leapt onto our comic pages in 1966 refusing to conform to the racial stereotyping of that era. Today, 50 years later Black Panther pounces back on to our big screens as a warrior, king, legend and a hero – a hero we all deserve to resonate with.

This film is the best by far bold ,courageous and intense in the message it sends out. It’s about roots,family,belonging and keeping the goodness alive.
Chadwick Boseman, Michael B Jordan, Daniel Kaluuya , Lupita N’yong’o and Dânia Gurira are not just great actors but so pleasing to the eye. Purrrfect.



The Dark Tower (2017)- In a world of superheroes, there is only one gunslinger.


I think that the Dark Tower does not do itself any justice. Great actors, good concept  but the delivery was weak.

The emotional attachment was hard to grip – I think there was too much to cramp into 100 minutes  and in the end the story did not make any sense.

I admire both actors but neither convinced me in this story line… it needs to be developed and reconsidered in terms of whether the big screen is the right place for it or should it be a series that can reveal the story in smaller potions?

The film left me wondering , guessing from beginning to the end exactly what was it trying to tell me!
