If you don’t look at it as “the final movie in the DCEU” this is a fun movie. While it’s not as great as the first Aquaman, it comes close. I liked how the brotherly bond between Orm and Arthur grew through the movie and this movie had me genuinely guessing whether they were going to do a certain storyline from the comics.
I also think they juggled the Amber Heard controversy pretty well by having just enough Mera in it.
This is one of the DCEU films I can see myself revisiting years from now.
This classic Christmas movie has it all!
Putting Santa Claus on trial for lunacy
A little girl demanding that she’ll only believe in Santa if he gets her a house.
But somehow the most unbelievable part of this movie is a giant retail store suggesting that customers go to a competitor if they can’t find what they are looking for at Macy’s.
1947 is kind of crazy judging from this. (Nonetheless one of those movies that everyone should see at least once)
Nazis got punched, a treasure is hunted, fun is had along the way. Harrison Ford even rides a horse in a subway.
The characters of Helena and Teddy may be super annoying but I found this film to take the character of Indiana Jones and put him in a pretty interesting place.
I had a good time with it.
This is a film that I feel differently about every time I watch it.
Henry Cavill is great as Superman. Michael Shannon is great as Zod. The film is visually beautiful. There’s a scene where Zod is speaking to Superman about building a new Krypton and Superman starts drowning in skulls. Visually breathtaking. The first flight scene, amazing.
However, I hate this film’s rendition of Pa Kent
“Was I supposed to let them die?”
and then pointlessly dying in…
Pleasantly surprised by this I was expecting a typical January PG-13 “horror” movie. Instead I found myself invested in the story and main character of this admittedly silly horror-comedy thriller.
I was going to rate this 3.5 stars but took .5 stars off for the doll singing. That was cringe.
I felt the idea to make this a movie that Andy from Toy Story would see and make him want a Buzz Lightyear toy was a really interesting and creative decision. The animation was top notch and it does get you in the emotions in some spots. Despite the controversy this film seems to have from different idiots on the internet, I think it’s a great family movie for the summer.
Also, Sox might just be my official favorite Pixar character ever.
I was honestly expecting to be bombarded with cameos from Marvel movies past but thankfully that is not what I got. Instead I received an entertaining trip through a multiverse that leaves our characters in interesting places to develop. I’d also say that this is a marvel movie that the young ones should skip—at many points in the back half it does feel a bit like a horror movie.
Also, it provides a post credit scene that will either enrage you or fill you with laughter.
While a massive step up for the franchise, I still feel like the plot is being drawn out to fill a 5 movie quota. This movie vastly improves on crimes of Grindelwald and I love the addition of Mass Mikkelson as Grindelwald as he gives a certain gravitas to the role that Johnny Depp was lacking. I’ve always felt Depp wasn’t right for the role of Grindelwald, and I am glad to see that rectified.
