Wakanda Forever

Running is a huge part of my life but not all of it! With that said I would like to include different aspects of said life.  I recently had to change jobs and will be travelling a lot more, may be including a few nights away from home. I decided to invest in a Cineworld Unlimited card. At an annual cost of around £214 (monthly £17.90) it’s not a bad deal! These days a film cost between £9 – £11 a go! This means I would only need to watch 2-3 films a month to recoup my costs! Bargain! After 21 films it’ll be free!

I have no problems with going to the cinema on my own! Travelling on your own can be a lonely business at times! This will help me ensure some of those nights away are filled. Of course I will be running too, that goes without saying! I used to love going to the movies, and I have missed a lot of great films recently!  It is hoped that I will post updates on the movies I go to see, to remember the films I’ve watched and to track how many I’ve seen (please see my movie challenge page). 🙂

I’m restarting my movie going experience with the best film out there! Black Panther! I love a good Marvel film and all the hype around this film was not wasted! It has all the action scenes, futuristic tech and stunning cast, to be expected of such a production!  It is also unlike any Marvel film before.  With a strong beautiful leading black cast and a story line with purpose.

It portrays Africa in the best light – I love the fact Wakanda is more technologically advanced and doesn’t want to show it off and lose it.  I love the way they showed Wakanda’s advancements but still intertwined with African culture!  Of course the presence of strong black female characters – who had brains, Shuri, and fighting prowess, Okoye, could be the best thing of all.  For me the story flowed the whole way through.  I’m not sure if it was because I was actually paying attention! 🙂  I will not give away any of the story line in case you have not seen it yet!  But just to confirm, I loved this film.

Go see it!

Wakanda Forever!

      Thank you! And thanks for the advice. I did a similar job back in my 20s and didn’t make the most of it! More confident now so will enjoy it while I can. First location is not the most exciting so cinema trips will help 😉
