That's what she said.


I'm pretty excited for this. Having been out of comic/comics related stuff for a while I'm thinking I'll dive back in with this one.

Now at 75% with 64 reviews in, still a lot of reviews outstanding but it seems to have avoided the critical panning that past DC films have gotten even if it's isn't as critically acclaimed as Wonder Woman.

Yo.

this film was ALOT of fun, and totally explains why Arthur acts the way he does: his dad was a Mandalorian!

this movie was VERY PLEASING visually, plays out like an old 80s film in the telling, and even managed to make giant seahorses look respectable; for me, it was worth a full price ticket.

Saw it last night, it's big, dumb and at times just plain bad when it came to the dialogue. That being said all the action sequences were top notch and the movie is consistently on another level visually which made it worth the money for me but your mileage may vary.

I saw it Thursday night. Fun popcorn movie. Campy and silly but a lot of fun. Like Flash Gordon with a budget if they tried harder. Actually kind of a mix of LOTR, Lion King and Black Panther. There was a lot of cringy stuff in the movie and bad CGI, but the positives of the movie outweighed all of that for me. I was pretty well entertained through the movie and got my money's worth. Not as good as WW, but better than any DC movie since Dark Knight.

How could they try harder than Flash Gordon? That movie is pure perfection.

Oh God, I LOVE Flash Gordon! Saw it as a kid in the theater. Always thought it was a shame we didn't get a trilogy.

Hell, the movie Ted had me cheering 8n the theater because of the Flash Gordon tie ins. Sometimes camp works.

Aquaman Is Officially the Biggest DC Extended Universe Movie

On track for 1 billion.

So not only is Aquaman now the 3rd biggest DC movie of all time (behind Nolan's 2nd and 3rd Batman movies), there is another encouraging stat.

Aquaman has outperformed all but 6 Marvel MCU movies (3 Avengers, Cap 3, Iron Man 3 and Black Panther).

Not too shabby for the guy who talks to fish.

Hoping to see it tomorrow if the timing works out for when I leave my dentist.

I'm kind of surprise that "Aquaman" is nearing a $1 billion. At best, I thought the movie would make around $600 million. Something around "Ant-Man" level at the box office.

It really helps that it made a killing at the China box office, in addition to the solid domestic numbers. Did record breaking numbers there.

What will be interesting to me to see if the "DCEU" continues to evolve and move pass the Snyder-verse of films with a "Flashpoint" or "Crisis" type of film to replace various actors and retcon things or just keep the Snyder-verse of things.

I'm fairly certain that Gal Gadot, Jason Mamoa and Margot Robbie are safe with their respective characters of Wonder Woman, Aquaman and Harley Quinn.

I think one or two actors may get replaced, but I don't think they'll make a film and let it play out on screen unless it actually comes out in 2020. I thought TPTB already stated the Flash movie may be something completely unrelated to Flashpoint? Even in the MCU characters like Hulk and War Machine were replaced. If Afleck isn't in Reeve's 'the Batman' then there'd be no point bringing him back for a Flashpoint movie if it comes out afterwards.

I think if we ever see another Justice League on the big screen it will be a much more inspired line-up with heroes like Shazam among the rest of the team, and without one of the big two. Reeve's Batman could build off of whatever will become of the Joker film and continue to build that universe separate for a time. We'll likely see WW84, Shazam, Joker, the Birds of Prey, the Suicide Squad relaunch, Aquaman 2, notBatfleck, and the Flash before we ever see mention of another Justice League. And that's already eight films! If GLC ever happens it would make nine, but it makes sense if TPTB want to distance themselves from the first JL flop.
