    dang. one of the best Marvel movies in my opinion. the villain was much more complex and compelling than most, and i found myself questioning the 'hero' at times which makes for an emotionally compelling and interesting film. also Shuri is my new fave.

    i hadn't seen this film since i first saw it in theaters, and it lived up to my memory for sure. it might have even succeeded my memory of it. i just looooove the visuals. and say what you want about emma and ryan's singing abilities, but their chemistry is OFF THE CHARTS.

    Brilliant. It had everything I love in one movie. I have a million thoughts in my head, which is totally fitting, but all I can think is: wow.

    idk, maybe i was just expecting too much of this film? it was a lot simpler than i thought it would be, which isn't bad by any means — especially because it does everything it's trying to do very well. but the characters fell a little flat for me and that made it hard to fully connect with the story. visually: super strong. sally hawkins did so well with the material, but i wish we had gotten a bit deeper with her character. not my favorite but still a solid film.
