What racial boundary was broken? 

It's the highest grossing film by a black director. The cast is predominately black. First black superhero with their own movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. We can go on and on about the racial boundaries that were broken.

Look I know that it is somewhat narrow minded of me, but it is a Marvel movie...MEANING that it would be almost guaranteed to become the highest grossing film by *insert minority group here*. It is a Marvel movie, and Marvel movies are designed from the ground up to sell. Black panther was not the best super hero movie to come out in the past decade, much less the past year. However, that is just my humble opinion.

 

By the way, this is not really me disagreeing with whether or not any racial boundaries were broken. More of a sidebar stating that the Marvel properties are just a license to print money for Disney.

Marvel and Disney didn't have to have a black person direct the movie. They didn't have to make it an almost all black cast. They chose to do this and to use that platform to push the envelope.

 

You don't even have to like the movie but Black Panther meant a lot for so many black people across the country with everything that has been going on that it goes above and beyond any numbers or money that the movie makes. Not trying to change the thread into something that wasn't intended as it was meant to be a fun thread. It's just something for everyone to think about in that it was another step towards equality.

Only the black director part is that ground breaking. All black casts are not new and I dont think Marvel deciding to not reboot blade is good enough. 

Regardless, none of that makes it a good enough movie worthy of best picture. Same for bohemian rhapsody frankly

Sounds like pandering more than an actual movie worthy of best picture. And trust me when I say I am a marvel stan fuckboy, but BP is not black panther worthy. Thanos was a better villian

I never said it was going to win best picture. It was my personal favorite movie of 2018 but I didn't see a lot. It's more about people wondering why it was nominated. It was a given that Black Panther was going to be nominated based off of numbers and records alone.

 

We shall see what actually wins.

Yeah I think we'll do a ranking system 1.  2.  3. with Top spot getting 3 points, 2nd getting 2pts and 3rd getting only 1pt.

 

REMEMBER THE PEOPLE THAT NOMINATED ARE THE ONLY ONES WHO WILL VOTE ON THE MOVIE WE WILL WATCH TOGETHER BEFORE THE OSCARS.

I wasnt talking about winning. Frankly it's not good enough for a nomination either. Also Infinity War made double than what Black Panther made nor is that ever a factor for best picture nominations anyways. 

Infinity War.
