We checked out the insanely popular Black Panther within the Marvel film universe and found it… lukewarm. We really wanted to like this new film from Ryan Coogler and found a lot of its themes interesting, often mirroring some of the best black cinema; but we talk about how the pacing really weighs this film down, how Erik Killmonger is a sympathetic villain who gets way too much exposition rather than actual background, and how the CGI effects and blurry action scenes are some of the worst in the Marvel series. For Ryne, the film was probably his least favorite of the MCU; Martin found it mediocre. Listen in as we talk Black Panther and discuss Epic Brewing Company’s Tart ‘n Juicy Sour IPA!
