Aquaman. James Wan. 2018. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Corny, visually rich, narratively dense quest narrative. Superhero flicks suck cuz you know The Hero is gonna win so whatever happens to be in his way is a snoozefest. Aquaman overcame a gaggle of variously weird conflicts (including pulling a sword from the stone, lol) so as to become KING ARTHUR. Also, the Villain's environmentalist worldview was never villainized. My ding is the conclusion was VERY anti-climactic.
