Feels like Marvel's gonna struggle after Endgame, especially if a lot of the old guard are moved on one way or another.

Might be DC's time to shine, finally.

Iím not a fan of Momoaís Aquaman, so didnít see Aquaman until now. It was a good choice, as I thought the film was absolute rubbish. Not just him, but in...every aspect. Itís box high box office is the most baffling to me since Avatar. At least in most of the films that earn so much I can at least see the appeal, even if itís not appealing to me. But this? No. Easily the worst of the DC films to date in my book.

Worse than the last 6 or so Batman films? I find that hard to believe. They turned an intelligent crime fighter that used science into a thug and a bellend.

I enjoyed the Aquaman films (Even though I'd never really heard of the character)

But I have to admit that I'm not a comic book nerd. Maybe if it's your life's passion then you're going to be massively critical.

Wasted too much time on the backstories,like way too much time and episodes,should've given us a short backstory on each (did that early episodes) and then pushed on and maybe filled us in if they get another series.


As for Guerrero,I would happily sit watching her watch paint dry,the lady is damn near perfection from top to toes.

Yeah agree with you on the backstory bit. It is abit annoying. Worked well in the Therapy episode though.

Absolutely agree on Guerrero ;) was excellent in Orange Is The New Black as well.

No, not a comic book nerd, and really don't give a shit about Aquaman. As I said, in other films I can at least find something or other to like (e.g., in Batman vs Superman Batman taking down the thugs to rescue Martha). Aquaman had nothing. On top of that, some of the CG was truly terrible, like the de-aging of Aquaman's dad. It was PS3 level graphics.

Teaser trailer for Joker - doesn't look anything like traditional superhero fare and I'm really intrigued to see it.

Yeah. A very different take on the character. Feels very 'The Killing Joke' as an origin story. Joaquin Phoenix is a good call.

I like that they are taking the 'Venom' approach of being in the same world as the hero but never actually seeing them. Which for DC films right now is probably the right way to go.

At one point they had Joker, Harley/Birds, and Joker/Harley (I think with Leto still in the role) all planned.

I was one of those people who wondered if we really needed another Joker appearance, but I have to say, this looks amazing. It's going to get a lot of Ledger comparisons, but Phoenix is going to hit this one out of the park. It's the only DC movie (besides Wonder Woman) that I'm actually excited about. Never thought I'd say that when I first heard he was cast.
Oh, these sour times.

Shazam! Hit the spot. Itís exactly as the trailers suggest, so if you liked those, I think youíll like the film over all.

The action was a little wanting, but I sort of feel like Iíve seen it all at this point, but the characters more than make for it.

It definately has that BIG vibe, and a nice few references to that film.


There are two stingers, both worthwhile. And the final scene of the film itself felt like it could be a stinger.

The best moment


Seeing this and Aquaman a few days apart was like night and day. But this does give me hope for DC. Iíll have to give it time to settle, but this, for me, is the best or second best one so far, Wonder Woman being my other one.
