Marvel movies have been knocking it out of the park for a while now, and the latest installments definitely do not disappoint. I saw Black Panther only about a month ago, but I thought it was very well-made. Not only was it a self-contained story, the visual designs of Wakanda were brilliant, and the narrative actually brought some real thought-provoking questions to the forefront — indeed, what are the moral obligations of the most technologically-advanced nation in the world, towards its fellow Man?

Because I personally find it hilariously dumb, you can rest assured that this won’t be one of those silly discussions that try to argue how turbolasers are more powerful than phasers.

As someone who is perhaps not the biggest fan of the Star Wars franchise, I don’t rush out to see Star Wars movies and I’m usually content to wait for them to hit the small screen. “The Force Awakens” hit Netflix a few months ago, and “Rogue One” just came out yesterday, so now I am all caught up.
