    Black Panther

    ★★★★½

    Black Panther is the newest foray into the Marvel Cinematic Universe starring Chadwick Boseman, Lupita Nyong’o, and Michael B. Jordan, from rising star director Ryan Coogler, fresh off of Creed and Fruitvale Station, boasting a soundtrack by Kendrick Lamar that sets the tone for the whole Wakandan experience.
