Picture: Warner Bros./Netflix

It’s Christmas weekend, and Hollywood nonetheless has items to provide. This weekend noticed the discharge of two huge sci-fi epics, each of that are unified by their connection to filmmaker Zack Snyder, who beforehand spearheaded the DC Extended Universe.

Within the first nook, we’ve received Netflix’s Rebel Moon. Directed by Snyder (who additionally produced and co-wrote), the movie stars Sofia Boutella as the previous soldier of an evil galactic empire who goes looking for warriors to defend her planet when stated empire comes invading. With an ensemble forged consisting of Djimon Honsou, Charlie Hunnam, Doona Bae, and Anthony Hopkins, the film is unashamedly a sci-fi riff on Seven Samurai. (And likewise Star Wars, since Snyder initially needed to make a film for that franchise.) For essentially the most half, the film’s reception has been tough; whereas Snyder stays one in all our greatest visible administrators, there’s been a number of criticism thrown on the lack of characterization, being particularly by-product, and missing the final oomph of its filmmaker’s earlier work. Many of those points could also be resolved within the upcoming R-rated director’s cut, which is ready to drop early subsequent 12 months forward of the discharge for the second installment.

And over right here on the fitting, now we have the returning DC hero Aquaman. 5 years after his solo movie, Jason Momoa will get one other swim on the character with Aquaman & the Lost Kingdom. Because the for actual remaining DCEU movie, Misplaced Kingdom ought to really feel like an even bigger deal, nevertheless it…actually isn’t. Its reception has been barely stronger than Insurgent Moon, however there’s additionally an open acknowledgement that it’s not fairly as enjoyable as its direct predecessor. Whether or not as a result of there’s been so many DCEU motion pictures this 12 months or it’s been recognized all 12 months that issues have been winding down, Misplaced Kingdom feels prefer it’s closing its mothership franchise with a whimper as a substitute of a giant, splashy bang. Even Momoa stated forward of launch that that is basically the end for him, although he’ll seemingly crop up in future motion pictures as a unique character.

Tell us what you consider both movie you noticed within the feedback beneath.
