Here’s my two cents-

You can truly tell people who do not know business or understand budgets.

Some of the criticisms around #Coming2America have been extreme overreach.

Firstly, I’m tired of seeing the comparisons to Black Panther.

Black Panther was a Marvel super hero sci-fi film with a $200 million budget.

Coming to America is a black comedy fantasy on Amazon w/ a $60 million budget.

🤦🏾‍♀️ I guess I can see the correlation w/ 2 fictional countries in Africa & movies starring an all black cast.

But we are comparing pears to peaches.

I celebrate what Ryan Coogler was able to do with Black Panther but BP does not exist without Coming 2 America.

Getting a film studio to green light BP w/ the largest budget ever for a black director- took groundwork.

296. #Moxie (2021) A fun and entertaining coming of age movie that might be a bit flawed, but the performances by the cast is good and it is a bit long however it deals with a lot of important issues and it have a really powerful scene at the end, the direction is strong. ⭐⭐⭐ ImageImageImageImage
297. #TheHitchHiker (1953) A swift thrilling noir film that is visually pleasing with great direction, it is very tense,suspensful and fast paced (yeah it's only 70 min)anchored by a trio of great performances by the cast. The story might not fully fleshed but still fun. ⭐⭐⭐⭐ ImageImageImageImage
