At this point, this is the best the DCEU can hope for. We are LONG past any of these films having the potential to be trend-setting events. Best WB can hope for is to ape the MCU enough that people at least have fun.
Just wait until Nolan comes back to direct the academy award sweeping Superman trilogy. Believe!

Wha--

I mean, it uses a neat effect over its animation that gives it a stop motion feel, but it's nowhere near artsy, it's still a big budget 3D computer animation. It's not like it's Persepolis or something.


It's a 2pac quote. Is it insensitive? Yeah, probably. Does this mean she's a horrible racist? No.
I'm oversimplifying but maintain that little kids expect everything to look sunny and Pixar. Teens and adults won't sweat it and I think it's going to do gang busters but the deep lore and slight edge might be a hurdle for breaking records relative to its critical reception. And if I am wrong I will be happy.

39 reviews so far. Some movies have like 400 reviews.

Gunna wait till they hit like at least 60-90 to see how this fairs.

Wonder Woman just came out last year.


(which to your point was really aping Cap 1 + Thor 1 anyway, but it'd be silly to deny it wasn't also a giant event)

5 points lower than I expected so far. Will probably slip to the 70s though.
Better than their last non-WW efforts it seems, so there's that.

Well RT wise the movie is going fine. Box office should be fine unless people just aren't interested at all, but it's probably a good enough flick to get butt in seats. Can't wait for Shazam

The vibe i get from the reviews is "silly, ridiculously over the top entertainment"

Aka an UNDERWATER FAST AND FURIOUS movie. Which is exactly what I was hoping it would be when Wan signed on. Hype engaged.

Oh please. Personally I hope WB follows their own path with the DC movies. The Joker movie alone has me more interested than any other upcoming CBM.

So can expect the score to drop by a bit? Thought that's what usually happens with RT scores
Hope it stays stable/increases
It depends. That oftenly happens when a film is embargoed to oblivion like MoS, BvS and JL. That's not the case here, while I get to see the film tomorrow because it premieres here, the film won't be out in the USA until December 21st. I think it'll stabilize around 70s with possibility of going up, instead of down.

I think DC fans should remember that Venom is a crap ass film and made a shit ton of money, this seems to be a fun flick full of spetacle and it'll probably please people even more than Venom. I'll take it.

Venom is way more enjoyable than Aquaman
