It’s wild how Republicans think they don’t have the same movies and video games in Europe.

What kind of "leader" spends his entire presidency tweeting attacks against his predecessor and his former political rival? Only a weak, insecure, and petty person desperate for validation would do this. Shame on America for allowing you anywhere near 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

It’s almost as if making a good movie and marketing it well gives you the best chance of being profitable regardless of the race of the people onscreen.

Was just at the theater watching Black Panther. A black teen confronted me. He said, "You're white and blacks rule." I offered to pay for his college. He said, "Higher education is for suckers" then turned into a car and drove over my mom, flattening her. So sad.

acknowledge the deeply powerful story that Mr. Coogler and his collaborators just injected into the center of our modern day myth machine known as Hollywood. What beautiful things might generations raised on stories like these accomplish? One can’t help
