Episode 32: Aquaman

aquaman

On this month’s episode, we close out the “2018 — Lundgrenaissance” and take a look at the latest DC comic book adaptation, Aquaman, currently in theaters (and still crushing it at the box office)!  In this underwater adventure, Jason Momoa stars as Arthur Curry, a.k.a. Aquaman, a half-man / half-Atlantian who battles his half-brother Orm for the title as King of Atlantis.  Dolph Lundgren takes on a supporting role as King Nereus, an Atlantian king whose loyalties teeter between both both prospective heirs to the throne as a full-on oceanic war erupts!  Joining the show once again is my buddy Chris Prentice!  How is it that the one superhero who’s always been a punchline is now the one who’s leading the DCEU films?  How does Lundgren do at playing a king (surprisingly, a first in his career)?  Is too much CGI a good thing or a bad thing?  And just how amazing is Lundgren’s entrance in the film?  Join Chris and I as we take a deep dive into Aquaman!
