11 Things To Know About "Black Panther" Before You See It

New movies have been slow to come out recently since the theater usually booms in the summer and on holidays. However, I'm pretty sure that Marvel knows that people will show up in droves no matter when they release their films. Below, you'll find 11 things you should know about the movie as far as background, but also things that should convince you to go.

1. I doubt this movie could have come out at a more appropriate time.

The United States is becoming increasingly more cognizant of the disparities among subgroups, and this movie is obviously capitalizing on that to explain the phenomenon.

2.He’s been in a Marvel movie before.

The Black Panther is a superhero from Marvel Comics that we saw in an earlier Avengers movie, and he was portrayed as the son of the King of Wakanda, who was then killed in an attack on New York.

3. The prince becomes king.

After the agonizing condition of his father’s death he begins to fight for his country from his position of power but also as a hero, the Black Panther.

4.The Black Panther was added to Marvel at an important time.

The comics were added to the Marvel franchise during the height of the Black Panther Movement.

5.The Black Panther as a symbol of equality, and the Black Panther Movement.

6.The cast is comprised of primarily black actors.

This is notable in the Hollywood of today which is sometimes referred to as “white-washed”.

7. His costume looks really cool, and similar to Batman honestly.

I mean, honestly, whoever is responsible for his outfit design deserves a raise.

8. Chadwick Boseman is the lead actor, and he’s awesome.

The guy wearing that awesome costume? Yeah, he's also cool.

9. Lupita Nyong'o is a boss female actress.

Y'all knew this was coming. She's a queen, in the movie and in real life.

10. The fate of the world in this movie depends on the actions that take place in the fictional country of Wakanda in Africa.

This is a breath of fresh air because Marvel Comics and other superhero movies tend to have New York or Paris as the epicenter of the world.

11. The soundtrack.

The following people are included: Kendrick, SZA, The Weekend, 2 chainz, Tyler the Creator, Khalid, Anderson, Paak, Ice Cube, Denzel Curry, Ty Dolla $ign, Migos and Future.

Given the soundtrack with so many great artists, a talented cast, and the simple fact that this is a Marvel movie, I can't think of a reason why you wouldn't want to go see it. I can assure you that it's high-quality, action-packed, and filled with drama and humor that isn't related to the plot at all (which is typical of Marvel movies). What more could you ask for in a movie?!

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
