2018 PG13 Jason Mamoa, Nicole Kidman, Patrick Wilson, Willem Dafoe
first I want to start off by saying.. Thank you for getting rid of the Dark costume, and putting the proper colors (2nd poster) on the man.The poster here doesn’t really do the costume justice I’ll just say its more gold looking if I remember right.
Arthur Curry Aka Aquaman returns to Atlantis to stop his half brother Orm from becoming ‘Ocean Master’ and declaring war on the land lubbers and to fulfill his destiny of being a hero and King of Atlantis.
I love the beginning with the sub, and taking out the ‘Manta pirates. Well there is one particular part of that scene that had my on the floor, or was that trying not to give the TV a shower. (Wonder if all of those are Mamoa’s own tattoos or if some were added for the role.) The bar is a bit funny as well, you expect one thing but its not going there.
Sea Dragons, Sharks and a Dinogator? Oh my!
Well that part made me hate humans even more… mmm Why does the underwater Atlantis looks like Avatar’s Pandora? LMAO Squid Bongos! (Are they trying to say something about drummers?)
There’s part of this movie that remind me of other scenes (at least a likeness) in movies. Like when They are at the aquarium ..Hello Harry Potter at the zoo, that whole ring of Fire could have been Quidditch or some part of the tri-wizard tournament, plus there was something that looked like a cross between the alien ships (in the first) avengers and a kaiju from (the first?) Pacific Rim movie.
Well he might not look like the comic version but at least the costume looks like Aquaman in the movie. However Richardson that played Aquaman in Smallville looked like someone reached in and pulled him OUT of a page.
Some of the FX was not good and you could tell it was done in front of a blue or green screen.
ANother thing is, its not dark like all the previous movies with either muted colors or black. Even scene that were dark (like night scenes) esp. one in particular when its raining, You can still see what is going on.
Also if I didn’t previously mention it… The jokes didn’t feel forced like they did in the previous movies. So maybe DC has started to listen, or just get better writers and directors.
OH WTF!!! The end credits are done like The Game of Thrones opening credits! Oh and Call Marvel! There’s a mid Credit scene! Besides the Sub –> these guys (Piranha men?) were another favorite in the movie. There were so many genres in the film I give it a thumbs up, and was funnier than preview DC movies.
(there’s a butt load and that was on the Blu-ray rental from Netflix)
Becoming Aquaman, Going deep into the world of… James Wan World Builder, Dark Depths of Black Mantis, Heroines, Villainous Training,
Scene Study Breakdown, Kingdom of the 7 Seas, Aqua-tech, Match made in Atlantis, Creating Undersea Creatures and there’s one or 2 more.
