Avengers: Infinity War


 Preview

There seems to be more Where is the Soul Stone than anything, leading up to the release of the movie. Image result for soul stone mcuSome moron who must be color blind thinks its Captain America cause he thought he saw some orange in his eyes in the trailer when Thanos the Grape has a grip on him. That was the gold of Thanos’ armor if there was any ‘orange’ color in cap’s eyes. There may be some truth to that but not in Cap. Remember Heimdall who’s eyes are a topaz/orange color? I’m thinking maybe it’s in Heimdall’s armor. Could we possibly see him in Wakanda?  You could also go by Thanos’ name! The names of or what the stones are in each have a letter of his name. With this theory, I tried to see if I could find another who thought of this and I might be on the right track. It might also be  MARVEL those of which we have seen with the gems.  Between these 2 an Asgardian has it.

While watching Black Panther, I thought I might have seen the soul stone somewhere in the heart herb garden. Which my logic is this; The heart herb brought back T’Challa, it gives the Black Panther his powers and helps him go to the spirit realm to speak to his ancestors.

Otherwise, my out of left field answer that I have no explanation for Bucky. As for where the soul stone is… I’m saying in space (or some other dimension or reality) If I go by where we came upon the stones that’s 3 on earth and so far 2 from space. Which means the soul stone is in space somewhere. And being we were introduced to 2 of the stones in Thor movies, as much as I would love for it to be in possession of Heimdall, logically I don’t think they would do that. We’ve seen the Guardians handle one of the stone, and Loki in Avengers had one in his staff. It’s only fair that the soul stone is in space and has something to do with the Guardians or maybe Dr. Strange or   Is Agent Coulson the Soul Stone? and Here’s a whole bunch of other theories

10 Big Questions That Were Still Left Unanswered After Black Panther  

and get this straight Chadwick Boseman Says ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ Is Not ‘Black Panther’ 1.5

We can see from the trailers Steve Rogers has now join his best bud Bucky in Wakanda, the Guardians somehow get Thor on board, Hulk, Tony, Strange and Spider-man are all teamed up

in the New York Sanctum. Ok so I get that group, its the scientist aka Genius clique. I speculate that the Guardians picked up Thor after the battle with Hela being as Asgard as the movies go, is in space. Also from interviews I know the 3rd act is supposed to be in Wakanda (which to me is a spoiler in a way). I have code names for 2 teams but not sure what to call the team in Wakanda spy, assassin, patriot, and a cat…if I use the first letter of each work would be casp or CAPS mmm Cap’s.

During the clip show, some guys mentioned some of the crazier stories in the comics. For instance, there’s some doughboy. (really?!??!) If you want to check that out its captain America #395

Saw a preview for the new Jurassic World and in 3D. OMG it looked so cool in 3d and mean the Dinosaur when it swung its head around I think i actually jumped.

The Deadpool trailer had a great line. Deadpool talking to  Cable “You’re so dark, are you sure you’re not from the DC Universe”?

Black Panther


2018

2 hours 14 minutes

Genre:    Action, adventure,sci-fi

Directed by Ryan Coogler

stars Chadwick Boseman, Danai Gurira,Florence Kasumba, Winston Duke, Martin Freeman, Forest Whitakaer, Andy Sirkus, Lupita Nyong’o, Michael B. Jordan, Angela Bassett, Letitia Wright

 

I was reading Entertainment Weekly’s interview with the ladies of Black Panther (#1502  Feb 16 2018) and I think it was the Walking Dead’s Danai Gurira that said

Amai – African word of respect (or its respect for elder women) I think all women are considered mothers even if they are not. (or something like that)

 

Chadwick Boseman – T’Challa   is King and the nation’s protector asBlack Panther

Danai Gurira -Okoye  the General in charge of Wakanda’s defense and head of the all-female ‘Dora Milaje‘ secret service

Lupita Nyong’o- Nakita who steals the king’s heart and Wakandan spy

Letitia Wright –  Shuri , T’challa’s little sis  and a sort of female Tony Stark as she’s the Vibranium Gadget maker

Angela Bassett – Ramonda the Queen mother

Forest Whitaker – Shaman Zuri      Forest Whitaker’s ‘Black Panther’ Role Has a Big Twist

Michael B. Jordan- Killmonger

Andy Serkis- Ulysses Klaue

Winston Duke-M’Baku leader of the Gorilla tribe

 

I saw this at Alamo Draft house which had a Black Panther themed specialty menu I forget the names of the items but they were made with African spices. I got the popcorn which was called

‘Niter Nibah’ I forget what the spices were on it (and sadly I cannot find the specialty menu on the Theater website) So I’m not big on hot spices but I do like a little bite on occasion. I had one piece of popcorn and it must have had a mass of the spices on it and I couldn’t eat another piece til my soda came. The last few movies I’ve gone to I guess were on Tuesdays which is discount day and I think before 2pm as they have it at that time where you can talk etc but they don’t put up the pre-show clip show which I really like. It’s one of the reasons I go there for my movies.

Before the movie they had a PSA of sorts with Chadwick boseman who just gives us the staredown, so we don’t use our phones. “I’m watching”

 

Black Panther takes place shortly after the events of Civil War. Wakanda, the beautiful and technologically advanced (fictional) African nation which has remained isolated from the world will soon be ruled by T’Challa as King.  It looks like a paradise, then you pass through the invisible border and you have an industrial city bigger than New York, Toronto, and any in the state of California put together!

The political story of whether or not to share their knowledge and help struggling countries as well as communities of their African American cousins where Eric Killmonger grew up. In a sense, they are enslaving themselves by not helping the world or sharing (though I understand they wouldn’t want the vibranium getting in the wrong hands).

I’ve heard praise for Eric Killmonger’s antagonist that he is the most layered of MCU villains (besides isn’t he the first human villain?). This is a fight not just fueled by or for power, but for the relationship between Africa and their African-American cousins as well, and rightfully so considering a bit of a twist (that wasn’t part of his origins in the comics)

I saw in the trailer there was a some Lion King looking scene and other’s have sounded not happy with that. Its a spirit world (see the ‘easter egg’ videos below for the name) that when you take the heart herb it not only heals you, gives you strength and speed of the Black Panther but you also are able to speak to your ancestors.

Oh that holographic car chase? How does it happen that it seems to become solid? I’ll let you think about it until you see the movie if you haven’t already.

The movie also throws out political opinions on current events as one of T’Challa’s guards (I think Danai) says

Guns, So Primitive

(frankly, I agree also, if you are not the military, police force or something of the like and I see you as a coward. I don’t need a gu In as when need be I  can be QUITE resourceful)

I have to give a thumbs up to the Costume Designer Ruth E. Carter designed the Futuristic but ‘ancient’ traditional (fictitious) African nation from researching not only African tribal fashions from around the continent but patterns, colors, and silhouettes.   Check out some of the awesome costumes here  I’d like to see something about those weapons esp. those ‘frisbee’ disks.

I would love a necklace that has an outfit in it for emergencies.

Andy Serkis is hysterical in the interrogation room, well for us he is, for him he’s I have no words but if the character is on something, Id like some of that happy juice!

 

And T’Challa has a cool new catsuit… which looks SO much better than the last batsuit!

A bit of fun at the end and how sad after 10n years of Marvel movies people don’t have a clue to wait til the VERY end of the credits that there’s another scene! SO many people left.

The first easter egg scene I think would have been included in the movie itself, before the end with T’Challa and his sister, the one to really wait for WAS the second one which I was thinking might have something to do with the end of Civil War and a nod to infinity war. And the person was referenced in the movie “Another white boy for me to fix” as said by  Shuri.

Speaking of which I do love the sibling ribbing between she an T’Challa but then again I don’t have siblings myself, tho it’s not a jerky sort of thing it’s done with love and I guess to keep the king grounded.

Oh and I saw the Craaaaziest shield wall in this!

 

Boseman comes back on after the 2nd(all the way at the end of the credits)  Easter Egg scene  “I’m still watching!”

 

5 Best and 5 Worst Things about Black Panther from Looper

I found the whole movie to be quite good, though may be missing something. Unlike previous Marvel Movies Killmonger does not seem to get as much face time, though maybe for me, many of his scenes are not really memorable. I remember 2 or 3 only which are pivotal points in the movie.  Also is he the first human antagonist in a Marvel movie (at least from phase 2 on?) The first easter egg scene I agree, was not needed but I wasn’t there for that one I was there for the one I had a feeling would be shown and thankfully staying through ALL of the credits paid off~ I’ll just hint that it was someone put once at the end of Civil War

 

 

Possible

 

And some other fodder

Gods of Egypt


20016    PG13    Blu-ray  2:07    action, adventure, fantasy

stars Gerard Butler, Nikolaj  Coster- Waldau Brenton Thwaites, Chadwick Boseman

 

Inspired by Egyptian mythology Horus on his coronation day is dethroned by his uncle Set the God of Darkness who also kills his  father. Vowing to avenge his father Horus joins forces with the Goddess of Love and the clever mortal thief Bek. Bek gets one of Horus’ eyes back and from there they set out to put an end to Set’s tyrannical dictatorship.

Well THAT was cool… the Gods bleed gold! and no you are not seeing things, they’ve made it so that the actors that are playing the gods, are taller than those playing mortals. I do like they did that so you know who is who, or should that be who is what?

A sparkle & shine feast for the eyes (man a dragon would love this movie), but sadly the story is not so hot, thankfully I didn’t see it in the theater which wouldn’t be worth seeing it for the price, for discount day for the eye feast maybe… but still I think I would ask my money back. I’d say this should have been made for straight to video and blu-ray only as I don’t think dvd or any other video version would be as nice to see it on.

I’m also a bit pissed off, as the Goddess Bast/Bastet was not represented among the gods or at least not that I could find. Oh and the winged goddess, those are more beautiful than a peacock’s feathers (can’t remember the name of the goddess though)

There’s not much good about the movie other than if those costumes of the gods (minus Set’s gladiator look, give it back to Russell Crowe)  were real and NOT 100% CGI which I would be surprised if there was anything practical in it aside from the actors!

Here’s my reviews of Captain America : The First Avenger and Winter Soldier

The Short of it…..Political interference puts our heroes at odds and  pits them against one another.

Fearing the past actions of our superheroes (it’s not like they hurt you, they saved your asses you traitors) our government wasn’t to pass a bill for the “Ant-hero registration act” which limits the heroes actions (& therefore likely with the limitations may not actually be able to help you or the world when in need). This leaves the Avengers divided. After his F** up with Ultron, Tony Stark is pro-act…that if it doesn’t happen cities would keep on being destroyed (I don’t see any way that could be avoided when you have an alien invasion going on). Cap with more common sense feels as though the government can’t be relied upon to protect the world. (They can’t protect us all… not with all those protocols, and going through the ranks to send an order by then the earth may no longer exist!)
