In my culture, Death is not the end. You reach out with both hands and Bast and Sekhmet,they lead you to a green veld where you can run forever.Chadwick Boseman playing Black Panther in Captain America: Civil War (2016)
Saturday, August 29 will forever be remembered in Ages to come. One of our adorable actors, brilliant in every way and one with huge potential passed on. Chadwick Boseman a.k.a Black Panther-a gentleman and Hollywood star braved the odds to give us generation changing acts while battling Colon Cancer for about 4 years.
While we’ll surely miss him, I’m sure his legacy will be a challenge to the living. A call for earthlings to be nice, to change the narrative and to let the world see a difference. As a way of celebrating his Life, the Trend Parlour team have come up with the Best Boseman Chadwick movies to rewatch in 2020. Enjoy the Read.
This legal drama narrates snippets of Marshall life while he was a young lawyer as well as his role in the famous State of Connecticut v. Joseph Spell case.
Set in the 1940s, Thurgood is a NAACP affiliated lawyer defending people of color wrongly accused of crime due to racial prejudice. Things are pretty mixed until he gets to Bridgeport, Connecticut where a lot happens in less a time. The intrigues in this drama is one that keeps you asking for more. With a rich cast and moments of deep thinking and mood swings, you reallly have to check this movie out. Remember the Supreme court scene in the series How To Get Away with Murder HTGAWM? Well, the courtroom suspense, as well as twists in MARSHALL, definitely matches that. Societal themes are heavily addressed in this movie while still retaining fun elements.
Black Panther (2018)
Black Panther shows the world a whole new angle to views. Smart costumes, a pool of diverse culture and aha! Great fight sequence. Did I mention to say this blockbuster talks a lot about changing orders, leadership and succession issues bedeviling dynasties? Stop what you’re doing now. (winks) Order your popcorn and go watch the star-studded Black Panther. Watch Out for Eric Killmonger too. Won’t say much to avoid spoiling the movie. Marvel Cinematic Universe really dealt the DC Comics an uppercut with this one (Yes! The Marvel vs DC feud never ends.)
‘Fascinating’ is the word to describe the cast’s performance. You decide your best cast. You can easily stream Black Panther on Disney+ or other streaming services. This is one of the Best Movies by Chadwick Boseman.
Captain America: Civil War (2016)
For the First time ever, we caught a glimpse of Black Panther. A portion of Captain America: Civil War, Chadwick Boseman’s introduction to the Marvel Cinematic Universe is, as mentioned, brief but memorable. He brings a gravitas and class to the role without saying much. Captain America: Civil War is a classical case of 2 Captains fighting for the command of 1 ship. More Like Captain Chandler and Captain Meylan in The Last Ship (contextual inference LOLs)
Here Political involvement in the Avengers’ affairs causes a rift between Captain America and Iron Man following fears by normal citizens that super heroes might turn against them. The government decides to push for the Hero Registration Act, a law that limits a hero’s actions. This results in a division in The Avengers. Iron Man stands with this Act, claiming that their actions must be kept in check otherwise cities will continue to be destroyed, but Captain America feels that saving the world is daring enough and that they cannot rely on the government to protect the world.
This escalates into an all-out war between Team Iron Man and Team Captain America while a new villain emerges. Captain America: Civil war is unique in that your choice Marvel Heroes who you expect to unite simply stun you. Find out who sided with who in this movie. Whose side do you think Chadwick Boseman’s Black Panther supported?
The faceoff between our beloved heroes in Civil War is one of the best fight scenes that has ever graced our TVs. Mehn! That King T’Chala punch. Pals go and rewatch this movie! Thank me later.
Avengers: Infinity War (2018)
Chadwick Boseman’s Black Panther screen time was limited here but his entrance were indeed one of the most memorable. Thanos this, Thanos that. The concept of villainy here made us to question our previous conceptions about the issue. Don’t understand what I mean? Just watch Avengers Infinity War and all will be clear. It’s been a long time since I used the word ‘ Incredible’ to describe a movie.
The Follow up in Avengers Endgame takes our imagination to the next level. The Wakanda Armies look cool by the way. Sounds greek? Better rewatch. The Russo Brothers had us in this one.
With infinitely higher stakes (no pun intended), Avengers Infinity Wars plays with our emotions. Definitely recommend.
Gods of Egypt (2016)
Gods of Egypt is a generally atrocious movie. Filled with bad CGI, non-Egyptians playing Egyptians, and horrendous dialogue, Boseman seemed to be the comedy relief of this movie. Though critics seriously panned this movie, Chadwick playing the god of Wisdom must have been the most hilarious twist yet. I mean, how can a god of Wisdom not know what a Cabbage is? You see why you have to check this Chadwick Boseman movies out? Lol!
Message from the King (2016)
In this Netflix film, Boseman goes on a revenge mission to find out what happened to his sister in the States. Despite being a story we can all relate to, the storyline isn’t one that we can call original. How does this qualify for best movie by Boseman Chadwick you may ask? Well, his performance was quite interesting for a generally bad movie. Till today, I still have no idea of who else could have fit into that role. Watch Message from the King to get my angle. No raised Hopes intended (winks)
Da 5 Bloods(2020)
This is one of the last movies Chadwick Boseman featured in before his death.
Da 5 Bloods follows the story of Four African American vets who battle the forces of man and nature when they return to Vietnam seeking the remains of their fallen squad leader and the gold fortune he helped them hide. Ooh Yes! President Donald Trump is mentioned during the movie. It’s definitely a must watch in the year 2020. Won’t say anything more.
Other memorable movies by Boseman Chadwick include
- Draft Day
- Get on Up
- 21 Bridges
- The Express
Some of Chadwick Boseman’s last works include
- What If ( To be released in 2021 on Disney+)
- Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom (To be Released on Netflix soon )
Many have walked the earth but few have left good impressions like Chadwick Boseman. The Trend Parlour team is grateful to all individuals who use their creativity to put smiles on our faces. Wakanda will forever remember.
