Black Panther vs Black Lightning!

It's not a trend or even a coincidence. Hollywood's had a history of using the same idea in two films in the same year.
Remember Deep Impact and Armageddon in 1998? How about Olympus Has Fallen and White House Down in 2013? Or Dante's Peak and Volcano in 1997? The Prestige and The Illusionist in 2006...

Sometimes they even come with distinct socio-political-paradigm flavors expressed by the subtle themes and values of it's characters. The most obvious example is Olympus Has Fallen vs White House Down.
OhF had a strong, authoritative white President besieged by a North Korean plot (externalized foe), and the movie itself is brutally violent, with innocent people being mowed down by machine gun fire; the film trying to convey fear and bewilderment into the viewer.
Meanwhile, WHD has a fun and relatable, but still strong, black President besieged by a white supremacist terror group (internalized foe), and the movie is for-the-most-part light heated and fun, with innocent people merely being held hostage until they're rescued in the end.

You can tell there are generally right wing values being expressed in OhF and left wing in WHD. Other film-idea duos have a similar contrast, although not as politically charged as these two. When you watch Black Panther and Black Lightning, look for thematic and moral differences expressed between the two.

Thanks, dude. It's always nice to see people taking notice.
I've been working on this dumb thing for 9 years, so I can understand if people are losing interest x)

RMN VALENTINES CARD 2018

Sadly, currently not. I do want to return to it asap, mainly considering this was just a mini project and the main one I actually want to host is a halloween one, and I don't want people not signing up for that one because I abondoned the valentines project.

Either shelve this or pick it up again in 2019. People are more likely to be discouraged from signing up if you pump out something your heart wasn't into.
Start work on the Halloween one earlier instead (like, start now) and make it into a masterpiece. Shanghai peeps if necessary.

A huge milestone!

>:(
There's no way I'm going to let you beat me to the punch.
