Deadpool 2 has been one of the most anticipated movies of 2018. This is a feat considering it’s being surrounded by movies like Avengers: Infinity War, Black Panther, and Solo: A Star Wars Story. The first Deadpool hit theaters and broke more than a few R-rated records. It was also facing something that ruins franchises; the sequel curse. After an estimated $125 million opening weekend, it’s fair to say that Deadpool 2 is going to continue to crush it at the box office. But what made Deadpool 2 a must-see movie?

One of the worst things you can do is place unwarranted expectations on a person, place, thing, or event. Leading up to the release of Marvel’s Black Panther, the expectations for the movie reached Star Wars-esq levels. Just to be clear, I don’t mean Revenge of the Sith, I’m talking Return of the Jedi levels of anticipation. Considering the lack of positive African American representation on the big and small screen it’s not hard to understand why African Americans have made it their mission to support this movie in full force. Black Panther managed to galvanize an entire people to spend their hard earn money months in advance for something that could very well have failed miserably. As a black man, I wanted to love this movie based on principle alone. As an objective writer on the interwebs, I know I have to put all of my cultural bias aside and view this movie not as a cultural movement but as just another piece of cinema. That’s said, Black Panther isn’t perfect… but it is the best movie Marvel Studios has ever released.

When the CW announced that their latest DC Comics-inspired television show would feature a relatively obscure character called Black Lighting fans were left scratching their heads. Had DC lost their minds? Are they, as the kids say, “bitting” Marvel by focusing on a street-level African American hero (see: Luke Cage)? How could a show like this ever work? Well, spoiler alert: not only does it work but Black Lightning may prove to be the best of all the CW DC comic book shows.
