but that he’s right in his ultimate goal of wanting to open Wakanda to diplomacy and trade with the rest of the world.
Jezebel vs. Jezebel: The commenter wars are real
Killmonger isn’t the one who wanted diplomacy and trade. He wanted to be dictator/emperor of them all. Pretty big difference.
He had zero interest in opening Wakanda to diplomacy and trade and I don’t know where you get this. He flat out states he wants the rest of the world to burn with Wakanda on top.
It’s almost as if there’s a middle ground between bending over and taking it or murdering people.
“The sun will never set on the Wakandan Empire”.
He wanted to conquer the world through the violent overthrow of the Other. He wanted the exact same thing every tyrant has always wanted. He didn’t want to break a cycle of oppression or hatred, he just wanted his turn at the wheel.
I am unsure of your definition of oppression, so I generally don’t know what you are considering oppressive. Your comment sounds like a guy who just read Marx for the first time so what you consider oppression and what oppression is may be very different.
His ultimate goal was to rule through oppression. He was no better and very typical. He didn’t care about Wakanda’s culture only for their resources in helping him achieve his goals. Wakanda was nothing more to him than a tool to push his views of global domination and oppression onto others.
I think it’s because his goal was only Blood & Fire. I’m not sure he even really cares to rule Wakanda. (Assuming, he actually killed T’Challa) If he died from choking on a pretzel with the vibranium weapon tech in the hands of black folk around the world, he’d have died with no regrets.
He wasn’t wanting to open Wakanda to diplomacy and trading. He was wanting to use Wakandan tech to start violent revolutions around the world.
“Imagine a mob of oppressed people storming the Capitol Building, but making extremely clear that they are doing this because they have no choice, because the government clearly has no intention of ending their oppression.”
He’s far from perfect—indeed, he’s a vicious killer. But he isn’t exactly a villain, either.
1. Will it begin in a tavern?
The series finale of Quantum Leap was bleak (to put it mildly), with the final title card confirming that Scott Bakula’s character, Sam Beckett, remained lost in time. However, one video claims a long-rumored alternate ending was actually real, one which would’ve made it possible for Sam to make that final leap home.
I’d have preferred it was kept in. Okoye and W’Kabi’s relationship was all tell, no show, and became one of only two small complaints I could scratch together. Like Angrier Geek says, giving up some battle rhino time would have been well worth the sacrifice.
“Unfortunately it occurred at a point in the movie where audiences just wanted to get to the resolution and so it slowed down a part of the movie and we were afraid audiences were checking out. “
Interesting that they came to that conclusion. To me, I think this would have helped the third act - it felt like it flew…
One of the bittersweet things about seeing Black Panther is realizing that the movie being shown in theaters isn’t the long-rumored four hour-long cut Ryan Coogler is said to have submitted to Marvel at one point. But there’s at least one scene we really would have liked to have seen included.
I’m torn between wanting a movie set in the Forgotten Realms, or them just going crazy and trying to get away from the typical western fantasy setting most people are used to now. Maybe a Dark Sun or Hollow World flick?
a Dungeons & Dragons movie
