Aquaman (2018)

"Down here, we have a legend about the Karathen, an ancient sea monster so powerful that even King Atlan himself couldn't contain it. So he imprisoned it in the depths of the ocean. In that abyss, the creature bides its time, waiting to rise again. Atlantis has been lying in wait, and now the beast has awakened."

I'm gonna be honest, this makes Aquaman from an oft-mocked meme into something genuinely great. It's well-paced, has great characterization (played by excellent actors, and damn was it awesome seeing Morrison and Lundgren again), impressive fight scenes, some gorgeous locations and designs, this film really does deserve and earn a lot of its praise.

I love that Michael Beach, the voice of Devil Ray from Justice League, is double-dipping here and playing the father of Black Manta. It was also a wonderful surprise seeing Willem Dafoe in a non-villainous role here (he does a wonderful job).

One thing that did displease me a lot was when my dad's PS4 began skipping large parts of the film (I'm talking at least five minutes of footage jumped over). I think it's his disc drive, but hell if I can do much about it.

Overall I was very happy with what they've done in portraying Aquaman and really improving his image (this film outperformed every solo Marvel flick in China in just a week). Gonna have to get this on DVD now.

Venom (2018)

"Now, let's bite all their heads off, and pile them up in the corner.
-Why would we do that?
Pile of bodies, pile of heads."

Disappointing.

Southpaw (2015)

"Stopping punches with your face is not defense."

Beware! the Blob (1972) [aka Son of Blob]

"Hippie, schmippie!"

This was a bit better than I remember as long as you don't judge it by the classic original, but more as a goofy, cheap comedy followup.

MST3K: Zombie Nightmare (1986/1994)

"This is either America ten years ago or Canada today."
