Movie and a Poster 2018 #8: Black Panther

Movie and a Poster 2018 #8: Black Panther.

Good movie, overall I was really happy to see a Marvel movie with new faces. I thought the villain was well executed and had more motivation than the typical comic bad guy.

Not perfect, it's a little long and suffers from the classic Marvel cliche of the villain being an evil mirror image of the hero (See Iron Man, Ant Man, and Hulk specifically).

It does get me more excited for Infinity War though!

Movie and a Poster 2018 #7. Winchester

Movie and a Poster 2018 #7. Winchester

Not as bad as I expected given the previous reviews. The dialogue is pretty terrible. The concept is decent and there are little bits that I really liked, overall I think it probably would've made a better Doctor Who episode than a movie.

Movie and a Poster #6: The Post

The Movie: I like watching people that take their jobs seriously and are good at them. Doesn't really matter what it is, Baking, Blacksmithing, Mythbusting, Treasure Hunting, Making Robots, Movie Reviews, if they're passionate about it I'll watch their show.

Watching The Post feels a lot like watching people that are good at their jobs. Good actors, good direction, good dialogue, and on top of all that it's about reporters that are passionate about their jobs and are good at them.

Even though you know the end, I was surprised how invested I was in the outcome by the end of it. Really pulls you in.

I'm 6 for 6 good movies so far this year, that can't possibly last. Hah!

The Poster: I really should have used the White House as the blacked out text but that doesn't scale vertically very well so I went with Congress as a stand-in for "Washington" as a whole.
