Visually it looks good, if it had anyone but Momoa playing Aquaman I'd be all in. One of the worst actors in the biz.
Damn, called the n*gga Jason trash. I never heard of the n*gga until JL

So i just got out from watching Aquaman.. and MAN !!!.. This is it... DC Mafia.. I've Called this A Long Time a go and ima say it again.. Aquaman is legit THE BEST DCEU Movie up to date !!. Ignore the rotten tomato scores, seems like a lot of Marvel Fanboys went in there to trash it.. This movie has everything.. But It's not a perfect movie but it is great !!

This film has to be one of the best performance i've ever seen Jason Momoa do in anything. The role feels natural.. Doesn't feel forced and very noticeable that he is comfortable playing as the character he's in. Amber Heard did a great job as Mera. Nicole Kidman did a fantastic job ! Def wouldn't had expect her to take a role like this (Yess she has action sequence as well and its dope as fu*k !) Everybody the entire cast was great from beginning to end.

Although Orm is the main villain of the film, Black Manta was scripted in perfectly that goes along with the story. A character that first you say to yourself " Yeah aquaman, kick his a*s " but when certain events that leads into the rivalry goes down... You actually end up sympathizing with him and understand his motives and why he has this beef with Arthur (Aquaman). He doesn't feel random but a necessary touch to the film, although a part of me wishes i got to see more of him but another part of me is happy with what we was given from him due to the film setting up a rivalry that can expand for a long time which def has me pumped & excited for.

Patrick Wilson character Orm was another great addition to the film. His performance as the villain was great. I kind of look at him as a Underwater version of Zod in some ways. That they have a vision and a good reason for it that actually makes sense.. Not just some " Lets take over the world because I now have the throne and its my birth right bull.. " sorry got side tracked a little forgot this isn't Black Panther...

Overall, this movie has it all.. Great CGI, great action sequences, Some funny moments (although i can admit that there are moments where the jokes don't land and can be slightly cringing). The film does feel a bit too long but as i keep thinking about the film i feel like everything that was in the film was needed ! Every scene of the film felt important to the story and to the character themselves.. This film really gave every single character from Decent to Large amount of character development.. So i can def stand by this film and say that by far this is the Best DCEU up to date in my honest opinion.. This is one film that Warner Bros, James Wan Crew Took their time and used every single penny in that budget to make this film.. The details itself proves that James Wan truly cares about the Aquaman story and KNOWS HIS sh*t !! Like literally James Wan must read Aquaman comics on his spare time because this film alone proves he did his homework... All in all this movie gets a solid 9/10

Pros
• Great Action Sequences (A lot)
• Good CGI
• Great Character Development
• Dope Villains (Orm / Black Manta)
• Great Pacing in story
• Extremely creative on how they go about certain scenes

CONS
• Worst soundtrack out of all DC Movies (especially that fu*king pitbull song)
• Movie feels really long at certain moments (not really a bad thing tho)

BONUS:
• Yes there is a mid-credit scene that opens up for a sequel
• This movie treats itself as its own thing, only Justice League / DCEU reference they make was Defeating Stephenwolf
• Aquaman's eye color changing from Zacks to This explained (somewhat)
• The Underwater CGI is the most Fantastic thing i've ever seen. Atlantis is purely amazing.
• HIGHLY SUGGEST you watch at IMAX 3D, this film feels like it was made for 3D.

I agree, except soundtrack I actually enjoyed as refreshing and broke the mold, a couple of tracks were actually genius on multiple levels of layered action. Especially trench f*ght.

man them Marvel-only stans are the worst lol they hating on the music



AQ was great from beginning to end

AQ was better than Wonder Woman to me but it's close
But Wonder Woman was just ok...it wasn’t a particularly good movie just not like the usual DC trash.

The truth is, the bar for DC is special ed status right now.

You wanna know why this movie is the best DC film of this crop. Because it not only goes full tilt and owns what it is. A very big, stupid, insane fu*king movie.

But they executed a balance of comedy and drama. Got memeorable grest performances,. Cinematography is dripping with gorgeousness. Inventive camerawork. A script that while a tad predictable if you’ve watched way too many movies. Hits all the right beats in terms of pacing to get you invested.

It did everything it was supposed to and FINISHED. (Unlike WW, which in its third act)

This doesn’t shove the “OH THIS ISSA DC FILM, LOOKA HOW DIFFERENT WE ARE FROM MARVEL” thing in your face.

From jump it’s like. Sit yo a*s down, take this popcorn. We trying to get lit, have fun, get you to care, engage you, and not forget these characters.

Zack Synder May know how to point a camera.

But James Wan knows how to direct a film.

Went to an open-captioned showing of Aquaman during a matinee yesterday.

This feels like Thor : Ragarnok which is basically a great thing !

plus " I don't eat dog" is probably the best quote of the year....bruh bruh the set up, punchline and the delivery of that line ...I damn near fell out my chair at the theatre .


I glad they switch some things up in this origin story ...but glad they setting up for the sequel ....t

this should had been DECU first world building movie along with Wonder Woman (setting up the world mythology) ..and then lead into whatever Batman film and then MOS last before doing JL

that's just me tho. But I glad this version of Aquaman is badass...he has not got an fair shake over the years even though is arguably one of the strongest and commands damn near the entire ocean (aka as Oceanmaster) in the DC Earth ...

I enjoy Marvel Movies... But when people sit there and try to compare Marvel with DC movies, bugs the sh*t out of me.. I use Black Panther specifically as an example because that movie was weak to me, especially with that horrible CGI in the third act.

movie was surprisingly good. every single line delivered by the black manta actor was cringe af, but otherwise few complaints. it felt a little long, but at the same time I don't think they really could have cut anything.

I'm saying tho, if you hate when people compare the 2 why did you do it? Your post would have been just as meaningful without the BP mention...
