Throwback Saturday: Um, ‘Aquaman’ Is Going To Be Awesome!

Aquaman released a teaser trailer a few months ago and while I did enjoy it to some degree it didn’t exactly entice me to watch it as much as I would’ve hoped. Well, yesterday an extended video for Aquaman came out and so, naturally, I had to check it out. Here it is.

Usually when a movie releases a five-minute! trailer that’s bad news but I have to say, for once, this was one of the smartest decisions I’ve ever seen a movie production do. Warner Bros. knew that people weren’t overwhelmingly excited to see this movie so they decided to show us what this film truly has to offer and I am beyond impressed.

This is honestly the first time I’ve watched one of the DCEU films with as much joy as I watched this trailer. It almost felt like I was watching one of Marvel’s movies as it displayed some fantastic action, lovable characters, and some legitimately good humor. Up to this point I didn’t know how I felt about Aquaman. He looked cool, seemed cool, but he wasn’t able to shine in Justice League. Well, in this movie, he’s clearly going to shine and I. Can’t. WAIT! To see this film!

Aquaman just may be the best movie in the DCEU so far with its incredible directorial vision, awesome looking action, and the sheer concept of Atlantis. I honestly couldn’t be more excited.

What do you think of this extended trailer? I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments below.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a great day.


Have You Seen ’10 Cloverfield Lane’?

Okay, let me tell you a little about 10 Cloverfield Lane. A few days ago I was bored and I wanted to watch a good movie. There was nothing on tv, I didn’t want to revisit one of the films that I’ve watched before, I was determined to watch something I’ve never seen before. At first, my family and I were going to watch The Conjuring 2 but I’m too much of a scaredy-cat and so we didn’t get very far with that. And so instead we turned another movie on. It was 10 Cloverfield Lane.

At first, I was watching the movie a bit disinterested but it wasn’t long before I couldn’t tear my gaze from the screen because I had to see what was happening. The story follows a woman named Michelle who, after leaving her fianceé, gets in a terrible life-threatening accident and finds herself locked away in a stranger’s basement. I’ll leave the description of the movie there because this is a film you’ll have to discover yourself.

This movie shouldn’t have been called 10 Cloverfield Lane. It should have been more appropriately titled Plot Twist because this film would not stop surprising me at every turn. It kind of felt like a mystery film because I was trying to figure out what was going on but the movie kept managing to surprise me at every turn.

And the conclusion of this film is downright shocking. I mean, it is so unexpected that it’ll leave you utterly flabbergasted.

I’m giving this movie 98 out of a 100 and 4.8 out of 5 stars. This is practically a perfect movie but the ending is so upsetting (in a good way) that I took the score down just a bit. If you want to watch a riveting film then I suggest this one. It’s filled with suspense from beginning to end and I highly recommend it because it’s kind of amazing.

It’s rare to watch a movie that keeps you on your toes the entire time but this is definitely one of those films.

If you’ve seen 10 Cloverfield Lane then I’d love to hear your opinion on it because this movie was quite the doozy indeed.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a splendid day.
