    Black Panther

    ★★★★½

    One of the most anticipated movies comes through in spectacular fashion. When Civil War came out I was more excited to see Black Panther than Spider-Man, and I am probably in the smaller crowd when it comes to that.

I was super excited about this film, especially because of the stacked cast. I ended up really enjoying this movie, but I feel like it may lose many watchers with its non-stop economic talk throughout the film. I was able to keep up with most of the movie, dealing with the housing crisis during the…
