Aquaman (***1/2) has fun in the shallows

"As it stands, the film still should do quite well. It's more fun than any DCEU film than Wonder Woman yet it still feels like something that matters at times. Not all that much, though. I hope WW, The Flash and Aquaman push their leads and the DCEU out of the mire. "

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (**) – Why build a miracle at all?

It's not that I hate this film. It's got some good, albeit disconnected moments. The task of entering the DC Universe mid-step means it will necessarily be different than the origin story heavy Marvel Universe. A used universe is fine with this reviewer. It just shouldn't have to require one to watch Blade Runner to lighten the mood afterword.
