I think Jason Mamoa’s Aquaman might be my new favorite DC superhero. I feel like a straight-up traitor for saying that, since Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman is clearly the best hero they’ve cranked out yet. There’s just something about Mamao that I love. No, it’s not because he’s gorgeous…though that helps. It’s because Jason Mamoa really seems like the type of guy who would stick up for the underdog, then hang-out and play drinking games with him. Sure he’s beautiful, but he also seems like a good guy, which is the part I like the most. So, who wants to see Aquaman EARLY and FOR FREE? Continue reading →

No, Justice League isn’t a bad movie but it does feel awfully familiar. It also highlights a huge difference in the way Marvel and DC tell their stories and why the Marvel films are consistently stronger: Continue reading →
Is it weird that I don’t really CARE if the new Justice League movie is good? My expectations are so low now, after Batman v. Superman and then the shocking let-down that was Suicide Squad. Wonder Woman was a refreshing surprise, but I don’t know if she and that golden-lasso are strong enough to save this whole movie. Jason Mamoa plays Aquaman in Justice League though and, if I were completely honest with you, I’d probably say that’s enough for me.
