No, I am not going to say anything about the recent Amber Heard and Johnny Depp Trial. In fact, going to keep this one super super short:

Aquaman was fine. Didn’t re-invent the wheel or offer many surprises, but I had fun. It did a lot of things really well. The action was a blast. Mera was gorgeous. Both of the villains were compelling. And most importantly, Aquaman himself was a total badass. I think it is safe to say the hero is no longer a punchline. Overall, it is a better version of Black Panther. While the latter had a better hero’s journey and protagonist, Aquaman was much more consistent and better paced. The superior CGI also makes it more rewatchable. After Man of Steel, this is the DC movie universe’s best movie (Wonder Woman is a close third).

Grade: B-
