    Got back from watching aquaman thanks to amazon prime.

    This movie was loads of fun. Great action. Second act kinda drags a bit. But the fantastic first and third act make up for it

    This was the best since Wonder Woman.

    I hate to do the comparison, but this really did feel like a phase one marvel movie. I think if DC continues this flow with Shazam and keep the dark stuff in the Batman universe, I feel they may have steered their ship in a right direction.

    Hearing mixed reviews on Aquaman, but generally people are enjoying it for what it is and that's cool, glad it isn't a train wreck! I'll probably skip it (Jason Momomomomomoahhhhhh's Aquaman was the bit i hated most in Justice League personally, so the thought of 2 hours of him doesn't tick my boxes) but i'm glad people are enjoying it.

    No, I got to see it early thanks to amazon prime.

    Ironic, using amazon to watch a movie about Atlantis.

    So people thought Venom was bad?!

    Aquaman was an absolute citchy pile of garbage in my books. It pretty much is a re-hash of that lost chinese Avatar-underwater film that never got finalised or released. Pretty much everything is way over the top, while the acting is on par with every other mediocre superhero-flick this year. Black Manta was cool, but a little bit too whiny in my books while the whole movie doesn't even have a reason to exist without Momoa, jesus christ... and how they got Kidman and Dafoe to sign onto this is unbelievable, but money comes along way I guess.



    The movie is entertaining to watch I guess with all the things that are going on, but the overall cheesiness and unrealness due to too much CGI makes these movies more and more hard to watch for me...

    I feel like we saw a completely different film.

    To each his own I guess, fortunately we can agree on other things on this forum.

    I was pleasently surprised with Momoa though as he didn't scream and shout all the way through the movie as I had feared since Justice League, but gave a proper portrayal to an often discussed character, but no, that movie was just not for me, sorry.

    That's cool, that's what makes movies great, we call all agree that its all subjective to the viewer.

    Saw Aquaman on NYE, not he biggest DC fan - the last few movies have fallen on their ass for me and I wasn't expecting much from this, however I walked out of that screen having seen my second favourite film of 2018 behind Infinity War.

    I thought they were gonna keep doing that thing they did at the beginning when it has a closeup on Momoa with the guitar music playing, but luckily they only did it a couple of times. The film was epic and big in scope, I'll be up for a sequel if they decide to go ahead with one.

    That just doesn't make any sense to me. Why are so many people going to see it??

    Because people are actually enjoying it?

    China baby. Their middle class with disposable income is expanding rapidly. And they have a major appetite for American style, generally more low brow, "blow em up" action movies where the nuances of the language don't matter much. Hence Transformers, The Meg, Pacific Rim, Aquaman, and even that abortion Rampage I believe doing well over there.

    To each their own, but I didn't think it looked that great and everyone I know that's seen it has said that it was mediocre or "just ok." I'll see it at some point and who knows, maybe I'll like it more than I think I will, but I'm just astonished that it's the #1 movie in the world and dumbfounded by the fact that it's approaching $1 billion. I highly doubt its quality merits that kind of success, but the shitty TransFormers sequels raked in over $1 billion a piece too, so maybe I shouldn't be surprised...

    Absolutely. I saw it with my 2 teenage nephews and we loved it. So did my sister, my b-i-l and their two kids. It was one of the very rare times where we all agreed on the awesomeness of a movie.

    I am so glad people are seeing it and enjoying it. Maybe DC needs to realize that fans do want to watch something else besides Batman or Superman?

    Now where is my Flash movie?

    As I said above, no, I have not. I canít say Iím too interested and the word of mouth Iíve heard from friends has not been very positive. But if you liked it, more power to ya! And like I said earlier, Iíll check it out eventually when I can just rent it. I love most comic book movies, but this one just doesnít look like one Iíll enjoy that much, so I have no desire to see in the theater.

    Fair enough, I've been like that with a lot of recent DC films however this one really did the trick. Maybe eventually you'll see it and be pleasantly surprised, or maybe still not be interested.

    Salt-shakers ready, we have potential New Gods plot details

    I will shit my pants with excitement if this really is the story of Mister Miracle and Barda because I really love those two.
