Marvel Breaks the Mold with Black Panther

Black Panther is the 18th film from the Marvel Cinematic Universe and it is, without question, the best movie they’ve made.

That’s right—it doesn’t have 20 superheroes or threaten the end of the world, but it’s a cerebral and complex film that offers a breath of fresh air for the MCU.

Director Ryan Coogler, who made Fruitvale Station and Creed, has created the most unique movie within the Marvel canon. He, along with the cast and crew ofBlack Panther, truly elevated the superhero genre.

Black Panther follows T’Challa, played Chadwick Boseman, who after the death of his father (which takes place in Captain America: Civil War) must take his place as the new king of Wakanda. But, when a family secret emerges, the throne and Wakanda are put in jeopardy.

Fifty Shades Freed Is the Farthest Thing from a “Climax”

Fifty Shades Freed is the concluding chapter in the popular Fifty Shades trilogy, which is based on the books from E. L. James.

The final installment, directed by James Foley, opens with Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson) and Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan) reciting their wedding vows. And, that’s when the movie should have ended. In fact, Fifty Shades of Grey should have ended that way.

Why? Nothing happens in this movie, and nothing happened in the previous film, Fifty Shades Darker, either. This is a textbook example of “milking it.”

Maze Runner: The Death Cure is a Maze of Mediocrity

Maze Runner: The Death Cure comes four years after the release of the initial film in the franchise. The Maze Runner opened in September of 2014, during the height of the young-adult (YA) craze, rivaling The Giver and Divergent.

The sequel (Scorch Trials) hit theaters promptly a year later, but unlike the first movie, it was met with harsh criticism. Because of the film missing the mark with critics and movie-goers, the third and final installment was set to release in February of 2017.

However, the star of the franchise, Dylan O’Brien, was seriously injured during a stunt after only three days of filming. The production was shut down, and there were serious doubts that The Death Cure would ever be finished. Luckily, O’Brien was able not only to overcome his injury but also managed to complete the film.
