haven't seen it yet on Tuesday Christmas day I will. A couple of friends whose tastes run similar to mine have both positively reviewed and enjoyed it. Also word of mouth post release is very positive as well

Now that I've seen it, I have to admit to understanding the comment about Aquaman being the DCEU version of the MCU Thor...

A lot of good visuals, but this almost felt more like a MCU movie than a DCEU movie. It does have its flaws, a number of them in fact, but overall I enjoyed it. Ocean Master was a neat concept, Blank Manta's helmet actually has an explanation to look that goofy.

I won't get into the things I liked less as they're a little too spoilery for now. But overall, decent film.

Wow. Aquaman carrying the DCEU. Who'dathunkit ?

Couple of moments where I found him more super than Cavill's Superman. They tried to address that in the JLA movie, but I found superman's concern for civilians tacked on.

Also, even though it was something of an origin story, it was interesting that they set if after the JLA movie.

This is such a weird time to be a superhero fan.

If you had told me 20 years ago I'd be seeing movies where Rocket Raccoon and Groot are not only regulars, but popular, I'd have laughed. If you'd told me I'd see a film where Ego the Living Planet was the villain, I'd have been incredulous.

If you had told me, at any point in my life, that there'd be a time where Wonder Woman and Aquaman had their own movies and were more critically acclaimed than a movie featuring the first big screen meeting of Batman and Superman, I wouldn't believe it.

I mean, for the first time ever, Aquaman is going "Stand back Superman, Batman. I've got this."

If the comics themselves weren't such a mess, creatively and financially, this would be pretty much the best time every to be a superhero fan.

Saw it and I was BLOWN AWAY. the critics were right its a mess, but its an absolutely GLORIOUS mess that you just cant take your eyes off of, great pacing and over the top action combined with BEAUTIFUL backgrounds and animations. Acting was no where near as bad as people make it out to be Jasons no clark gable but hes solid and strong in the role hes given, and the supporting cast just does a great job. They even take shots at some of the cultural jokes that aquaman had become and roll with them and get a good laugh with some while making others epic


Highly reccomend this movie and cant wait to get it on DVD


Quick edit its already surpassed half a billion at the box office and is set to push records for the holiday season shy of anything Star wars

Pretty sure we caught a glimpse of Skartaris too of all places in this movie as well.

Skataris, in the comics, had been an Atlantean colony, so, sure, why not.

I thought it was okay. It was a very pretty movie and there were legitimately good moments, but there was a lot of meh thrown in too. I'd give it two and a half out of five, putting it on par with Wonder Woman and Black Panther as movies that are good, but really overhyped.

As a life long Aquaman fam I'd give 4 out of 5 stars, but I'm slightly biased. That said though I enjoyed it much more than I did Justice League.
