It's kinda crazy that the new Dragon Ball movie is actually in the top 10; it's not in nearly as many theaters as most of the other movies on the list.

The kids love Anime! It's a great time to be alive. My Daughter likes Voltron of all things. I'm obviously a great Dad.

Glad to see Glass at the top again. It deserves it. M. Night did a great job. I think Aquaman is now the highest grossing of the DC movies.

Is it any coincidence it is also the one with the most amount of color? When Snyder makes everything different shades of grey people go "Meh". Add some color like with Wonder Woman and Aquaman and suddenly the movies do gangbusters. I'm not saying it is the only reason but it could be *a* reason.

The other ones had Batman. You can't make a colorful Batman movie. They tried it in the 60s already with the show.

Man of Steel didn't have to be blue tone. And Justice League didn't either, despite the presence of Batfleck.

They should double down on the grey with Batman and go full on period piece with an early to mid 19th century Sky Captain style Batman movie. They should do the same with Superman but make it color and embrace the old Fleischer studios vibe.

Glass is pretty mediocre and worth a rental at best, but if you like listening to people talking about comics and superheroes while doing very little else, you're going to love it. I found some enjoyable moments in it, but I'd recommend a rental or stream.

There's literally nothing in this film that benefits from the big screen. NOTHING.
