Warning  Light Spoilers below…

Season 10 of The Walking Dead directed by Greg Nicotero picks up several months after the people of Alexandria suffered major losses at the hand of the Whisperers. The story continues as Rick’s legacy lives on within Alexandria. The communities band together to prepare for another battle.

Daryl and Carol once again make a deep-rooted connection while attempting to make plans to see what’s beyond the realm of Alexandria, Hilltop, Kingdom and Oceanside. MICHONNE learns that Judith is a lot stronger than she seems and realizes that her maturity level is more than she anticipated. The group faces a major challenge as they attempt to stay within the boundaries of the agreement between the communities and the Whisperers.

Overall this was a very enlightening episode that showcased the strength of many of the newcomers. Some of our favorite characters like Daryl are opening up more and making more connections with the community. Alpha’s daughter is trying to create a home for herself in the community while Negan continues to step out embracing humanity.

The flow of the episode was good and provided fans with the expectations and excitement of what our vision of a season 10 premiere should be. The opening scene was epic and the show displayed a great deal of elevation and evolution among characters, plot, setting, and mood. The Walking Dead has now stepped into the future of survival and has demonstrated what true unity means within the spectrum of humanity.

I can’t wait to see how this season unfolds.

Black Panther 2018

Black Panther Movie Review

Marvel’s Black Panther Directed by Joe Robert Cole and starring Chadwick Boseman, Danai Guirra and Lupita Nyong’o tells the story about a man’s rise to power as he claims his right to the African Throne of Wakanda. Wakanda is a technologically advanced African nation that is isolated from the outside world. As T’Challa embraces his new role as King, he is constantly challenged as the secrets of his past begin to surface. He struggles to maintain the throne and keep Wakanda’s existence concealed from everyone. The modern world and the realm of Wakanda quickly begin to clash once an ancient Wakandian artifact is stolen from a museum. The secrets of Wakanda’s technology are about to become public knowledge from the exposure of a past and new arising threat.

Overall, I thought that this movie was very engaging and filled with action. I would not expect less because of the high expectations that Marvel Comic movies present. Everything fell into place nicely. The Score took you on the journey with the characters, and the special effects were impressive. There were some moments that could have been cut in the editing room, but for the most part, the movie was well made. The cast was great, and Boseman did well in portraying his character, but I must say, seeing Danai in action made me love her even more. Obviously, I’m a big fan of TWD, so I felt that Danai stole the show in so many ways. Her strength and tenacity within her acting were so inspiring that it made me want to see more of her. Her character and (developed) backstory could be featured in a stand-alone film. Danai was spectacular! I know I didn’t really mention the first villain, (Ulysses Klaue) Andy Serkis, but It’s important because he also played a significant part in The Age of Ultron film.  (Everette K. Ross) played by Martin Freeman reprised his role as prominent CIA Agent investigating the peculiar Earthly revelations that technology has embarked within the modern world. (Ross also had a prominent role in (Captain America Civil War) as well. It was nice to see Serkis and Martin Freeman together again. It’s very clear that Marvel is crossing over all the films so that they can become a cohesive Universe. All the pieces of the puzzle are beginning to fit very nicely. This is setting the tone for the first Infinity War Movie which is set to release in theaters this May. I saw a clip of the Avengers alongside the Black Panther and Okoye running toward something. I’m sure the clip is still floating on the internet.

Black Panther was a great film; it is a must see. I give this movie 5 stars!
