Carey Mulligan in Wildlife
FYC

"She can be rather bland (see Drive for one blatant example) BUT when she is on, she is on fire. Phenomonal in Shame and Never Let Me Go." - Huh

"She will have a long and fruitful career. I see her like the next Charlotte Rampling. Aging gracefully carrying complicated roles in complicated movies." - Peggy Sue

Podcast: Black Panther (plus underseen gems)

With Nathaniel now ensconced in new digs, the podcast can resume. Up first a mini-podcast on Ryan Coogler and Marvel's Black Panther blockbuster with Nick Davis and Katey Rich. It's paired with a "deleted scene" from the last podcast as Nick, special guest Teo Bugbee and Nathaniel discuss favorites that were never really in the awards conversation but we hope people will find on streaming including super-hero adjacent Professor Marston and the Wonder Women. 

You can listen to the podcast here at the bottom of the post or download from iTunesContinue the conversations in the comments, won't you?

Yes, Nick, Lovesong!!! I don't understand why people haven't been taking that movie seriously enough. Stunning acting. I saw it in theaters and still think about it all the time. Great movie about parenting, too.

Welcome back!

Just saw "Panther". I'm mixed on it, and think it's trying for something more sophisticated than the genre (or Marvel?) really allows for. We are introduced to a new (to the audience) country and it's monarchy and culture, and are then asked to recognize the system as both worth defending and somewhat flawed/in need of evolution. I suppose I prefer that to absolute Good and Evil, but it's a lot to keep track of.

I loved Black Panther so much. I wish all superhero films would aspire to be as thoughtful as I found it to be, but we all know they won't.

I LOVED it. A little long (some of the earlier action scenes could have been cut) but so fresh for Marvel.


Cast MVP: Michael B Jordan (and yes his last line was killer)
Runner-up: Danai (omg she was fantastically watchable in this)

I love that Hou Hsiao-hsien is commenting, and that he's super into Black Panther!

Thank you

I’m sorry but the notion that for the sequel they should leave the place and characters that made the movie special to become international is not a good suggestion.

I really liked Killmonger as he was a very compelling villain. BUT even his intentions weren’t good as he planned to impose a black supremacist dictature on the world through violence. Heck, he mindlessly slaughtered everyone standing in his way (friend or foe). On the other hand, T’Challa always tries to make the right moral decision and even ends up changing his mind thanks to Killmonger (a very hard and wise thing to do). Furthermore this idea that anyone who’s well-off doesn’t know struggle and is an ennemy not only is false but is terrifyingly dystopian. Watch it for free on

@Hhh, why should the action bits be cut out of the movie? That's what people came to see; if you don't want to see that, fine, but most of us do (you can always see Star Wars: The Last Jedi-which fans have criticized for its lack of action, specifically Luke Skywalker not doing much of it-if you don't want a lot of action.)

For me as a black male fan of this (sub)genre (of sci-fi fantasy, IMHO, and it should be respected as such), it was beyond impressive to see a black superhero character from Marvel Studios other than Blade be in a movie, and on my 50th birthday (February 16th, 2018) during Black History Month, no less. The action parts made the movie amazing, and complimented the dramatic ones.
