Aquaman

Post by Lunkhead » Thu Sep 19, 2019 4:53 pm

Holy cow, was this dumb. Also long. Also, WTF???? This was seriously the most over stuffed bloated epic turd I've ever seen. It was like, a super hero movie, comic book fan boy service, Game of Thrones, horror, sci-fi, romance, Arthurian legend, a video game, and 50 million other things all crammed in. Some of the scenes, the sheer number of moving entities in the field of view is literally brain melting. I guess kudos to the filmmakers for being so gonzo but wow, oof, I still somehow got bored no matter how much crap they threw at me.

I don't even remember most of the storyline. All that's left is a vague memory of the plot, and the main thing I remember is that the character arc felt very formulaic (though "Alita - Battle Angel" which I watched more recently did this even worse and with more stupid demographic targeting). It looked nice at least, I guess, and with this kind of movie I don't really expect a lot of storytelling or even depth in the first place, so I wasn't exactly disappointed.

I thought it was fun, especially when it turned into a treasure hunt movie. After a bunch of comic book movies that take themselves Very Seriously recently I enjoyed seeing one where an octopus played the drums and Dolph Lundgren was the king of the fish people.

This movie is sounding increasingly relevant to my interests.

Um, _actually_, Djmion Honsou voiced the king of the fish people. Dolph Lundgren is king of Xebel.
