    They played homage to this Aquaman albeit it was very brief:

    This was one of the top 3-5 super hero comic movies I have seen.

    Maybe the story isn‘t original but it was good enough and the special effects and fantasy world setting was great - easily better than Black Panther or Wonder Woman.

    I enjoyed Aquaman and it was a good popcorn movie. Fun. However, it doesn't even come close to cracking my top 5.

    It's not even the best DC movie--WW far surpasses it. I don't think I could put it in my top 25 or 30.

    Well, you have to realize that there's everything from the Marvel movies to Nolan's Batman to the old Superman to the old Batman to...you get my point. I just didn't rate it.

    I’d still like to see your list of 30 superhero movies that are better than Aquaman.

    This. I can guarantee you I can rip it apart objectively. Again, keeping in mind that I think overwhelmingly that the MCU has hit it out of the park and I am a huge fan of the Nolan films.

    Whew geeze, I'll have to do that sometime. Not right now--that'll take a WHILE--but sometime.

    Actually, I lied. It didn't take much time at all; about five minutes and a word file. And these aren't nearly all of the ones that are better, IMO. Apologies for not typing out full names, but this will suffice. It's in no particular order. Now, folks may subjectively disagree, but I definitely liked all of these movies better than Aquaman, many of them way better. I liked Momoa in the role, and there were some great parts--when he's being dudebro super hero--but it was swallowed up by the suck.

    1--Original Spiderman

    2--Spiderman: Homecoming

    3--Batman (1989)

    4--Thor 1

    5--Thor 2

    6--Thor 3 (Better, even though highly flawed itself)

    7--Wolverine

    8--V for Vendetta

    9--Hellboy

    10--Hellboy 2

    11--X-Men

    15--The Crow

    16--Cap 1

    17--Cap 2

    18--Avengers

    19--Ultron (Not the greatest Marvel movie, but definitely better than Aquaman, IMO)

    20--Civil War

    21--Infinity War

    22--End Game

    23--Ant Man

    24--Ant Man 2

    Never saw it, but heard it was atrocious.

    It was. There’s no chance you and I would disagree in that. Guarantee. I saw it for FREE and thought I wasted my money.

    Thor 2 was not a good movie Wolverine was extremely disappointing. Iron man 2 is one of my least favorite. The first Hellboy was decent. The second Hellboy didn’t suck but wasn’t great. I would pick Aquaman over or say it was equal to any of those movies.

    Like I said....easy.
