Black Panther Brings Hope For The Future

Tomorrow, on May 15, 2018, Marvel’s newest movie “Black Panther” will be arriving on DVD, Blu-Ray and 4K! Along with it’s release comes several bonus features that fans did not get to see in theaters including but not limited to the Gag Reel, Deleted Scenes, Director’s intro and more (for more details about the release, see “Marvel Studios’ Black Panther“).



I received the chance to review Black Panther, the moviecame with a fun party kit to throw a wonderful themed party for my family. We played a game of Movie Bingo, had yummy popcorn and snacks, and snuggled under a warm blanket while we watched the movie unfold. Well, actually, my sister Frances snuggled under the blanket while we waited for “our turn”.

While Frances enjoyed the comforts of the blanket, we all watched the film for the chance to shout Bingo. The search for caves, spies, hoverbikes, lip plates, beads and mores made each of us watch Black Panther closly because the winner of Bingo didn’t have to clean up after the party. My brother, Peter won..obviously..Just look at that face (above). For a copy of the Bingo cards head to “Black Panther Printable Bingo Cards.” Simply Download, print, and play.

The party was fun to throw, but it would not have been a success without a good movie to watch. Marvel provided that good movie with Black Panther. The graphics are beautifully created and the women characters are astounding.

The graphics are noticeable as soon as Wakanda appears on screen. The amazing tech is sure to capture the imagination and awe of all those who watch. For me, it was like the future had finally received the description, excitement, and honor that it deserves. We all hope for flying cars, hover-boards, and high tech gadgets that produce usable holograms. I mean, the ability to drive a car remotely is EPIC. Black Panther brings hope for the future and not an apocalyptic tragedy. I love that!

Dancing around in the graphics is a huge cast of women who represent the strength and honor of Wakanda. There are so many powerful women within the movie that Black Panther is one of the first superhero movies that both boys and girls can have amazing roll models. What I like most about Black Panther is the fact that the women are not pitted against each other to fight for money or other needless objects. Instead, the women have a presence of power on screen and work together to achieve their goals, whether it be as a warrior or as a scientist. Check out the concept are for the Dora Milaje, the body guards/warriors in Wakanda. It is beautiful.

I truly enjoyed Black Panther with all it’s graphics, story line and character development…even if I did lose at Bingo. I simply blame the loss on the fact that the movie was so good I forgot that we were playing a game. I couldn’t peel my eyes away from the screen long enough to find a place to put a token. My love for future tech and the color purple was the start of my loss. Add epic fight scenes and the occasional “Geek Speak” and my loss was guaranteed. It just goes to show that a story about a Prince learning that for the future to have hope, he must help those in need is a winning movie. I Love It.
