Finally saw Black Panther last night. A slightly above average action flick that, for once, was not overwhelmed by the special effects.

My inner nerd wants to point out that, if Wakanda was sitting atop a body of ore that emitted that much energy, the whole place would be a lava lake. :ugeek:

Comic book "energy" isn't at all like real energy. Comic book energy makes cool weapons and gives people superpowers after it irradiates spiders or because its sun is yellow and opens dimensional portals, etc. Comic book energy is to energy what rappers' 'bitches' are to real women.

Indeed. In the MCU, an energy source powerful enough to generate an electromagnetic pulse every two seconds for several hours is also small enough for a non-strong adult human to move around, and safe enough for several humans to stand right next to it without lead shielding or any other forms of protection. [Source: an Agents of SHIELD episode from a couple seasons ago, before the show ran completely off the rails, pulled up said rails from behind it and melted the rails down into weird Escher sculptures.]

Is the villain in Black Panther really named Killmonger? That seems a little ... obvious for a bad guy.
I should have listened to Warren. He was right again as usual.

Yes.

It is, at least, a nickname.

Speaking of Kilgrave, wish me luck, I'm about to attempt to watch Season 2 of Jessica Jones, despite finding the first season so upsetting and noping out midway through. I just can't say no to Kristin Ritter, apparently.

This one is less of a psychological rapefest.

She is, however, a near-antihero.

I'm just impressed Ritter can go so completely from the B in Apartment 23 to Jessica Jones.

I'm into season 2 right now. I remember liking the first season quite a bit, so I don't have that problem. My problem is they put six years between seasons, and there's all these characters and subplots I'm sure I'm suppose to recognize, but I can't remember that far back, and while I did enjoy it the first time around I'm not for slogging my way through the whole thing again.

If anything, Season 2 lacks the thematic coherence of Season 1. Kilgrave was perhaps too strong a looming presence, but the new season thrashes about from subplot to subplot, concentrating on them to the extent that the story arc(s) sort of get lost in the process.

You really don’t want to watch Altered Carbon, then.

I'm just going to watch Altered Carbon and I hope get laid afterwards. Pretty cut and dried on my end at this point.
