    ★★★★

    Every bit the bombastic vaporwave fever dream that I was promised, ‘Aquaman’ shines brightest when it abandons any consideration of being taken seriously. The aesthetic and imagery on display here has been something close to my heart since I was a toddler, and James Wan did a fantastic job of bringing the Lassen inspired environments to life. ‘Aquaman’ mostly succeeds as a self aware overblown piss take, existing somewhere in between a Disney Channel teen mermaid film and a full…
