Aquaman movie
Thought it was a good movie that didn’t take itself overly serious. Might have been about 15-20 minutes too long, but had a go flow to it so not a big deal.
I’m not too familiar with Aquaman’s comic book history, but it seemed to take a few things from The New 52 era like The Trench.
Wish I would have caught more of the Easter eggs during the movie.

Agreed that it could have been a little shorter. Really enjoyed it, was a lot of fun. Hope that the DC movie universe is turning things around. With this movie and Wonder Woman they seem to be going in the right direction.

Shazaam looks like a fun movie as well.

I can't argue it was a fun time at the theater. IMAX was great!

I just felt the basic story (King Arthur meets Sword in the Stone meets the Little Mermaid) was so dull and hashed out.

I know some of the DC origin stories are pretty old, maybe they should re-imagine them a little bit so we don't have a story that has been used a thousand times in the past 70 years.

Just got an email from HMV UK saying my Steelbook pre-order will be honoured even though their eCommerce store is still in administration. It'll be great to see it again.
