Then why exactly do you care what the film is about?

I mean right :deadbanana4:

 

OT: I literally shed a tear. This was so powerful and emotional for the cultural seeing your birth continent in a light in which white directors never wanted to show nor represent us in. :clap3:

The reviews are good. It’s not going to be something like Lemonade or Homecoming where everyone gives it 100s.
 

Black is King is wayyy more left-field and specific in its African content, so the fact that all the reviews are positive and in the green is still great

The way you're acting as though the score is plummeting when it's dropped only 3 points and the Rotten Tomatoes score has remained at 100% despite jumping from 4 reviews to 21, is certainly a kii. :toofunny3:

 

OT: Thank you @Destiny for posting the reviews! The OP is updated.

If it was panned we’d be on page 10 rn :alexz3:

 

OT: Watching it for a 3rd time before bed. It’s  so beautifully done.

Woo, the 100% RT score looks so good on the title. I think it would look better if it said % on there too tho. :redface:
