What is it about?

This is how Marvel describes this movie:

Marvel Studios’ “Black Panther” follows T’Challa who, after the death of his father, the King of Wakanda, returns home to the isolated, technologically advanced African nation to succeed to the throne and take his rightful place as king.

But when a powerful old enemy reappears, T’Challa’s mettle as king—and Black Panther—is tested when he is drawn into a formidable conflict that puts the fate of Wakanda and the entire world at risk.

Faced with treachery and danger, the young king must rally his allies and release the full power of Black Panther to defeat his foes and secure the safety of his people and their way of life.

“Black Panther” stars Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman, Daniel Kaluuya, Letitia Wright, Winston Duke, with Angela Bassett, with Forest Whitaker, and Andy Serkis.

The film is directed by Ryan Coogler and produced by Kevin Feige with Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Nate Moore, Jeffrey Chernov and Stan Lee serving as executive producers.

What do I like about it and what would other people like about it?

I liked some of the technology, some of the diversity, that some less talked about characters were shown, some of the music, and some things about the main villain; and I think that other people will like that as well.

Final Thoughts

I think that this movie was over-hyped, it was not as good as it could have been, and it was not as good as most people say it is in my opinion; I think that it was average.

There were more unanswered questions and unfinished parts of the plot than there should have been in my opinion, but there are still things in this movie that you can enjoy and it does briefly bring up some topics worth discussing.

Like Your People

I had more dreams but I kept going back to sleep without recording them, and so now I can only barely remember one part of one dream.

The dream involved me being inside a building with my former coworker Mr. CG from The BP School Board Computer / IT (Information Technology) Department, and he and / or we were working on fixing a computer / electronics / IT problem of some kind.

At some point I remember Mr. CG saying something in reference to someone (possibly himself and / or someone else) and / or something having multiple eye colors (maybe blue and green in one or both eyes) where he said something at the end of his sentence like: “Like your people.”.

I was confused and surprised for a moment, what did he mean by your people, and then I assumed that he either guessed or somehow knew that some of my ancestors possibly had multiple eye colors like that.

For a moment I wondered how did he know that, but him guessing that would not be so hard so I stopped thinking about it because it was possible based on the various locations my ancestors were from.
