I actually 'liked' Aquaman.

It's a love story... two love stories, amongst the smacking of faces and laser beams. Nothing special, nothing over the top, but fun and I'd watch it again.

My wife NEVER wants to go with me to super hero movies. All of a sudden, she wants to see this one. Can't , for the life of me, figure out why.

Wasn't Alita Battle Angel supposed to open opposite Aquaman? I guess they were smart and moved it a week.

Looking forward to seeing Aquaman. I liked the way he turned out in Justice League, probably one of the best pleasant surprises of the whole movie.

Alita isn't until February. We still have Glass and the LEGO Movie 2 first.

So Aquaman and Bumblebee fight for first...
Shame for the other movies. They all look respectable (even the JLo thing - well, as respectable as a Working Girl update gets). They should've moved to another weekend.

Fortunately, they appeal to very different audiences and the JLO flick likely wasn't going to tear up the box office, anyway.

I was thinking more "Secret of My Success" but Working Girl fits too.

I watched Bumblebee with my 8 year old daughter last night. It was a very fun movie and we both really enjoyed it. She had several laugh out loud moments and the movie had a little comedy in it and a good amount of robot action. For this find of movie the story was good too.

Heading out to see Aquaman in a few hours. I’ll let you know what I think when I get back. It’s a long move. 2.5 hours.

Back!

It wasn't bad, but it's another giant 2.5 hour cartoon. There are about 2 scenes that are not 100% green screen and those aren't great scenes.

Some of the dialogue is pretty bad. And not in the Marvel movie "I'm getting a chuckle out of this." bad, just lazy writing.

We certainly enjoyed it, it ranks up there about at the level of the worst of the Marvel movies. I think the biggest problem is that it is yet another origin story. We really didn't need an origin story, we have seen this character in two films now.
