Hello Aquaman!

Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

I am tired. Kaput. This insanely long holiday with a toddler and new baby was the most draining experience of my life. There is no way you can find a balance between work, not sleeping, babysitting and making sure there are dishes for guests after you’ve cooked meals for them.

The only day we relaxed was a 5 hour day with a Spur breakfast, inhaling a sundae at Milkylane and watching Aquaman. We only watched it in 2D because we only watch 3D on IMAX and we didn’t want to be too far from home. It was good anyway.

I’m no leader. I came because I had no choice. I came to save my home, and the people that I love.

Aquaman

The special effects were amamazing! The movie had a list of special effects artists longer than the road from Jozi to the Cape… so they really made sure they nailed it. The fight scenes dragged on a bit long, but overall it was a good way to spend a Sunday.

In case you want to get some of the DC Aquaman magic for your desk or superhero collection, this is from Funko Pop! (Gammatek).

Aquaman is from DC Comics – so no, he will never cross paths with Tony Stark from Marvel Comics. Let me give you the lowdown on Aquaman… because as uncool as he is depicted in Big Bang Theory, he is probably one of the most powerful superheroes in the DC world.

Raj in Big Bang Theory
  • Arthur Curry is Aquaman. Half human and half Atlantean.
  • Jason Momoa played the character in both Justice League (2017) and Aquaman (2018)
  • Mother: Queen Atlanna of Atlantis; Father: Tom Curry, Lighthouse keeper; Half brother: King Orm of Atlantis
  • Aquaman has had 2 tridents
    • 5-pronged trident (steel/silver) that belonged to his mother – used in Justice League, destroyed in Aquaman movie
    • 3-pronged trident (gold) that belonged to King Atlan – retrieved in Aquaman movie. King Atlan destroyed the foundation of Atlantis… it is also the most powerful trident ever of course.
  • After retrieving King Atlan’s trident he gets a new gold with green suit plus he becomes ruler of the sea.

I am not going to give away more spoilers. Just go watch it on IMAX if you can!
