BEST DCEU FILM
8 December 2018 | by luofaSee all my reviews

I want to cry now ......last year after watching Justice League, I was depressed. My friend didn't say anything but I know she think DC films sucks. So I went to see Aquaman alone yesterday, for the first time in my life,everyone was applauding after the movie (Maybe because everyone who go to watch Aquaman premiere is a DC fan but when I was waiting for a taxi I heard a boy talking to his girlfriend that "This Marvel movie is wonderful!!!" lol) James Wan is AMAZING,Aquaman is very imaginative and it's nothing like any other superhero movie I've seen before, he knows what we want, BEST DCEU FILM (Yes I think it's much better than SS/JL/BVS/MOS/WW) I can't believe that Aquaman's net production cost is160m, much lower than JL(300m) BVS(250m )MOS(225m) even SS costs175m!!! WB should give James Wan more budget to direct Aquaman 2!!!! P.S. James says he may direct a horror-style Batman movie,pls WB let him do it!!!!
