    Just as exciting and fantastical as it was the first time around, James Wan’s Aquaman is one of those superhero flicks that I only see getting better and better the more I see it. This time around I noticed a lot more problems I had, but also things that still stay stunning. The jokes don’t really land a lot of the time and the actor playing young Arthur is horrible.

    "I guess I'll see you in the movies."

    At the mere age of 31, and with just two feature films under his belt, Damien Chazelle has become one of the most daring and passionate filmmakers working today. His first outing, the brutal and intense Whiplash, introduced us to Chazelle with big eyes and having us look out for anything his name is attached to.
