Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, the most anticipated movie of all time is finally here. I’m here to tell you how to survive this 3hr and 2 minute monster of a film.
Sorry to break it to you guys, but there is no intermission during this movie. That means there is no time for bio breaks. Regulate the liquid you consume before the movie and try your best to go before. If you know you won’t survive the long runtime, I recommend downloading the RunPee app. They silently buzz your phone during a movie’s downtime, giving you enough time to escape. The app also provides small summaries for parts you may have missed which saves you from the scramble to keep up when you get back.
Time travel plays a major role in the plot, but I feel like the movie fails to adequately explain it. Marvel time travel works a lot different from regular time travel in the sense that anything the heroes do in the past doesn’t affect their world. Instead it makes an entirely different timeline. I wish I had a better understanding of this during the movie because it hurt my viewing experience a bit.
I watched Aquaman opening night with low expectations. Before this movie, it was really hard to like DC. Movies like Justice League and Batman vs. Superman just didn’t do it for me. I’m happy to report though that Aquaman is worth your time.
Aquaman is about Arthur and his journey to claim his rightful spot as King of Atlantis. He faces adversity along the way in the form of his half brother, and decides the only way to become king is by getting the Trident of Neptune.
Conclusion and Rating-
Honestly I feel bad for this movie. I love Jason Momoa and think he is really steering the DC movies in the right direction. However, Marvel beat them to the punch with the whole “king rises to the throne plot” which makes Aquaman feel like a Black Panther gimmick. I’d give this movie a stale rating. It’s definitely one of the better DC movies and I’m excited what DC has in store for the future.
We finally have a taste of the next Avengers movie after the huge cliffhanger Infinity War left us with. This 2 minute trailer is jam packed with loads of details that might be intimidating at first glance. I hope to make this trailer more digestible for the everyday person with this breakdown.
Tony Stark Stranded on a Spaceship
Suitless and defeated after his battle on Titan with Thanos, Tony Stark aimlessly drifts through space with no way to get home. He states how he ran out of food and oxygen, and as a last hope, makes a log for anyone who is able to retrieve it.
In this shot, we can see that Thanos has hung up his trusty battle armor. He’s completed his goal of killing half the world, and can now live the rest of his life peacefully.
Familiar Faces Return
Heros like Hawkeye and Ant-Man are back, and I have the feeling they are going to play a big part in Avengers 4. If you didn’t know where these guys were during Infinity War, Ant-Man was under house for the crimes he committed in Civil War and Hawkeye decided to hang up his bow to live with his family.
