Thumbs up Aquaman

Done right.
Worth the price of the ticket.

Other than the plane jump in the Sahara, an awesome dose of fun.

Yeah I enjoyed it. That Mamoa guy is the worst over actor but it was a fun watch. Great effects and the story was fairly compelling for a comics movie.

Does the movie resolve the age old question of where Aquaman poops? Asking for a friend.....

Man, I hate to be a Debby Downer, but I didn’t like it at all.. thought it was just bad. Not the worse movie out there, better than Bird Box but ...MeH. Found myself dozing off a couple of times.

"I bet she tastes like fish" kept going through my mind while watching the movie.

I loved it, and was glad I spent for the big screen ticket (gotta love half price Tue). The underwater effects were pretty damn impressive.

Well...now you’re suspect. Movie was marginal at best.


It was....WAY better than Bird Box!!!! I will say that!

+1. It's an orgy of CGI but other than that, nothing special. Also, Momoa's snarky act got tiresome.

"Vice" was much better. Christian Bale and Amy Adams transformed into Dick Cheney/Lynne Cheney so seamlessly it was almost scary...

I thought it was pretty good, but I don't see a lot of movies. Wasn't a big fan of the shrimp people vs fish people battle scenes...

Kid loved it. It was amusing enough to keep me awake. All in all, I guess that's about the highest praise I'm likely to give for a movie.
