That’s actually a perfect example of what I’m talking about. Aquaman almost lost me in the opening few minutes because the deaging of Jango Fett was so terrible. But after that they were able to draw me in. Could I come up with a list a mile long of complaints and nitpicks about Aquaman? Fuck yeah. Do I care about any of them after seeing Jason Momoa ride a seahorse? Fuck no.
And clearly many or even most people really enjoyed the animation style, and I’m sure a lot of people were thrilled to see Miles Morales finally come to life on the big screen. Not everything has to be for everyone, and that’s OK.
