    ★★★★

    My thoughts on this film are irrelevant at this point.
    Black Panther is not only a film it is a sea-change - a blockbuster produced, written, directed and starring predominantly people of African decent.
    Beyond that, it achieved monumental success - it is the highest domestic release of 2018... that's right, a movie that was released in February, centered around a little-known comic book character without much star-power out-grossed 'Avengers: Infinity War' (a movie released at the beginning of summer…

I feel the message of 'it's ok to be afraid- just don't let it change who you are' is powerful, sincere and more important now than ever! All around an amazing, visually stunning film
