    Loved almost everything about the movie. It almost didn't even feel like a superhero movie to me, and I mean this is a very good way. It felt otherworldly, as it should. Even the scenes in the mundane parts of the world felt more like Blade Runner when the Wakandans were around. The women were amazing. I could watch the Dora Milaje all day and not get tired or it. Shuri was awesome. And I liked the overall story.

    I think I enjoyed this more than any other Marvel movie to date.

    My complaints:

    T'Challa's presence wasn't big enough in the movie. There was way too much going on to appreciate him as a character. I enjoyed Michael B Jordan's performance much more, and even M'Baku outshined T'Challa.

    Klaw was done pretty poorly, imo. I guess maybe this is what happens when you take the "Fantastic Four" out of him. Not a being of sound anymore, just a lamer with a fancy weapon. Waste of Andy Serkis, imo. Imagining classic Klaw in a Gollum kind of way then getting this will cause disappointment.

I was fine with Klaw's lame ending because he was lame. I was invested in the Killmonger stuff and not Klaw. Klaw doesn't offer a viewpoint he's just a creep.

I liked almost everything about Killmonger. I laughed when he called Ramonda "auntie". I liked the decision to make him and T'Challa cousins (I wouldn't have liked it if they were brothers...but making him a cousin with a claim to the throne worked for me).

Oh and I loved M'Baku's character. That character could have been so offensive yet for the most part he worked really well.

Nakia was the real surprise though. I was expecting her to be villainous. I never expected she would be the main female character of the movie and be heroic.

(little miffed W'Kabi was a traitor but that's a minor complaint)
