I've been waiting for the DC films to hit DVD and renting them for $1.78 at RedBox. I find the films long and sometimes boring, so a full-priced theater ticket and popcorn just don't make financial sense. 

Watched this Aquaman, and I'm in agreement with the general consensus that this off-model rendition is not something I'm willing to give more than a little time to. It was the borefest that some recent superhero films have been, but I think Jason Momoa would be better suited to another comic book character, like Namor or Lobo, as mentioned upthread. 

But I'm happy with my routine of not seeing them in theaters.

I checked it out again recently, and notwithstanding all the issues people have pointed out, I appreciated how Aquaman started drinking beer with his dad at sunrise, and drank until after dark, at which point our hero got behind the wheel of a pickup. It's a good thing Ocean Master chose that moment to attack or the movie might have been a courtroom drama.
