Discuss Aquaman

Even the most cold hearted of you surface dwellers must admit that even if you hated the movie that octopus in Atlantis was hitting some sick beats with those multiple drums. The only thing missing was a dolphin spitting out some sick bars while the two kings were duking it out in the ring.

I can only imagine how that octopus scene came to be:

Production assistant:"We've only spent 198 million of of our 200 million production budget, sir.

Director:"198 million......that's crazy talk!"

Production assistant:"It's true, sir"

Director:"Well, put a god damn drum beating octopus in there!"

Production assistant:"A drum beating octopus.....are you entirely sur......SIGH....where do you want to put it?"

Director:"Anywhere...I don't care!"

You know, I thought I've seen it all in movies....but a drum-playing octopus? Too cool. Everything's downhill from now on because nothing can possibly top that.

I prefer an octopus wearing black lingerie like in The Little Mermaid, but I am strange.

I gotta admit the movie did not get me interested. There is something wrong with it and i don't know what and believe me there is. But i liked the creatures in it the fishes of all kinds, monsters and yeah the neon studded octopus on percussion. It's the cutest thing i seen. May be the people got a way to communicate with fishes and they got that guy doing so.

:drum: :octopus: :trident: :ocean:

I finally got to the end and I understand what you mean with the part "there is something wrong with it". It's not bad, but it's also not very good. It's just another one of those generic action movies and in that it is very similar to the movies Marvel has been putting out for years now. Just generic and mediocre action movies you might want to watch once, but never want to see again after that.

Also while I'm here maybe one you surface dwellers can explain why those atlanteans are afraid of falling in a pit in one scene, but jump out of an airplane without parachutes in a previous scene. Kind of like how they seem to try and avoid getting shot, but when the waterman gets blasted with a laser in point blank range it doesn't seem to do anything to him. What about about Gy-bro Gearloose who gets his hands on super advanced and precious Atlantean weapons tech and immediately starts tearing it to pieces and pimping those weapons like he was trying to make Xzibit proud. If he already has his bachelors degree in advanced alien weapons engineering with matching skills, why didn't he just make the weapons he wanted in the first place instead of running around with a knife in his shoe or sleeve like some kind of a contemporary Rosa Klebb.

The film was missing something for me. Cant really put my finger on it. But it had amazing CGI and was a ok cape flick.
