before we get into spoilers,
i’d rate Aquaman a 9.6 out of 10. i took off .4 for some corny lines / scenes and some other minor things that i’ll be talking about in the review, but that’s literally my only problem w this film. Aquaman was my favorite movie of this year and my second favorite CBM of all time (Logan is my first).

this is my SPOILER review for Aquaman —
wow. i’m in love w this film. Aquaman had me feeling all types of emotions. a lot of people are saying the story / plot is generic and simple, but honestly if it’s done right (which it was), i don’t really care lmao. everything made sense and worked perfectly, and i don’t think there were any plot holes. i was never bored while watching a scene in this movie. the character development was great, especially for Arthur. and holy shit his suit and trident were GODLY. this film’s shots were so visually pleasing and nut worthy 🤤 i loved the fight scenes and the kingdoms of Atlantis. Ocean Master is my favorite DCEU villain. i can’t wait to see more of Black Manta in Aquaman 2. King Nereus, Vulko, etc, all did their parts and were amazing supporting characters. i also love how James Wan (the director) added some horror elements into the film, like when the Trench attacked Arthur and Mera on the boat... that whole scene was intense. Arthur’s childhood scenes were awesome. i loved Atlanna and Thomas’ relationship, and i found it heartwarming how Thomas waited by the docks every sunrise in hopes to see Atlanna again. Arthur and Mera’s relationship while they were in Italy was a bit corny at times, like when Mera fell from the statue and landed in Arthur’s arms and it was awkward, etc... 💀 but other than those types of scenes, their relationship was great, and i can’t wait for them to get married in Aquaman 2... Wan make it happen 👀 i also didn’t like how there were a lot of surprise attacks and it became pretty repetitive. seeing Atlanna alive had me shook. she was really the one to stop Orm from going more insane than he already was lmao. also, that end-credit scene got me so hyped 😩 in all, this movie is amazing and you should definitely go watch it.
Vril Dox aka Brainiac was a brilliant scientist. The best there was on his home planet of Coluan. He had cloned himself dubbing his clone Vrill Doc II. He and his clone assistant began a voyage in space. Brainiac wanted to search for all knowledge he couldn’t get enough. He went planet to planet collecting different life forms. This continued though when finding Krypton he took the whole city of Kandor. He wanted to know everything, to be..everything. Brainiac is generally believed to be the most intelligent being in the DC Universe, possessing a twelfth-level intellect that surpasses even Lex Luthor. He is capable of storing and processing trillions of minds worth of information in his data banks and Coluan brain and possesses superhuman calculation abilities, enhanced memory, and advanced understanding of mechanical engineering, bio-engineering, physics and other theoretical and applied sciences. He has been shown as being capable of feats such as shrinking entire planets, creating impenetrable force fields, absorbing information from other beings, transferring his consciousness, time travel, and even creating an army of ten thousand similarly powered probes who are each able to rival and even kill Kryptonians. His vast intellect also makes him immune to mind control. He is able to inhabit and control and technology therefore his bod has been made out of technology to stop his aging so he can have all the time he needs to collect knowledge. Sensory overloads and obsession with control are his major weaknesses.
