PHILADELPHIA (JSC) — The 69th (:::giggles:::) Episode of the People’s Podcast is here and, it’s the long awaited review of the hottest movie in years: Black Panther.
Those who know me know that I do NOT buy into hype. At all. Think of the most pumped up, hyped up things in music, or TV, or film over the last 15 years. There’s a high probability that I likely either never bothered to buy in or if I did, it was moths or even years later. I do this because, honestly, most of y’all have terrible taste and have a habit of calling everything a “classic” or “the future” or “the greatest” when it’s often total basura. Black Panther is NOT in that category. This movie is the truth.
Black Panther is the super hero flick that we have deserved. It’s the best Marvel movie of all time. It has grossed more than $1 billion worldwide. It is the best superhero film since The Dark Knight, one of the five best ever, and arguably the best “Black” movie of all time. Much like Get Out last year, this movie is a game changer, not just in terms of superhero movies, but in how we look at black cinema. Too often the last 60 years, black movies have been a zero sum, all-or-nothing game. It was either a serious biographical/documentary film, a stereotype-ridden action film, some stereotype-laden hyper-religious Tyler Perry flick, or some wild, wacky stereotype-filled comedy (or some combination of the latter three). Black Panther‘s a game changer, and I will talk about why this week. Plus a special shout out to Get Out, which we reviewed last year, that won an Academy Award for best Original…original…Screenplay.
A New Episode drops every week — usually on Thursday or Friday.
