I’ve finally got around to preparing a review of Aquaman and there’s a valid reason why it’s taken as long as it has: The DCEU is essentially a clusterfuck, managed by people that have never read a comic book in their lives, which genuinely bothers me. Despite having gotten in to comics initially with DC […]
2017’s Justice League is on Netflix and with Aquaman rising above expectations to dominate the domestic box office maybe it’s time for another look at the movie that introduced him to the world (though technically that’s 2016’s Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, which I have included a clip from below). A better approach would–if […]
I recently cut a reaction trailer for the recently released Captain Marvel: Special Look (2019), where in my somewhat meandering fashion, I discuss not only why I haven’t seen Aquaman but why I prefer superhero movies from Marvel Studios. Agree? Disagree? Let me know in the Down Below.

For reasons I’m not entirely sure Aquaman has been performing particularly well, outgrossing Justice League and Wonder Woman cumulatively. Which I find vexing. Part of the issue is that I’ve become accustomed […]
I purchased a ticket for Escape Room recently (which looks like a cross between Cube, Saw and maybe even a little bit of Cabin In The Woods) but I haven’t yet seen Aquaman-though I caught Bumblebee, which is pretty good. And that’s saying something for a Transformers movie-and short of Netflix or DVD, have no […]
Aquaman is so doing swimmingly, in China which is important since it has yet to be released domestically. With a budget somewhere around $160 million it’s performing particularly well. Now I fully admit to finding this somewhat problematic–after all Aquaman is essentially ‘Course Correction: The Movie’–I shouldn’t begrudge DC Films what is likely their second […]
Trust me, this movie has ‘sleeper’ written all over it. A thriller in the vein of V and Colony Captive State revolves around an alien invasion of the country (world?) where some humans are cooperating while others act as a rag-tag resistance. Have we seen this scenario before? Sure, but not recently and with movies […]
