    Aquaman was actually pretty fun and aesthetically pleasing. It had its meh moments, but overall not bad. Second best movie of the DCEU, after Wonder Woman. (Note: I’ve only watched these and Man of Steel, and I only presume the other movies to be meh or awful based primarily on trailers, selected actors, and hearsay.) 🙂

    Also, “Thanksbuying” is now what I will call the holiday going forward.

      I meant the Aquaman comment for the next ep, which I listened to back-to-back with this one. Whoopsy…

      Also, I meant to mention that Tetris Effect is a visually stunning game while being fun to play. It’s quite an experience! The journey mode is challenging (but in a fun way!); I think the sudden level changes make it interesting, along with the different colors and themes. Such a neat, modern take on a classic game. Five stars.

        So you would say, that you “got gud” for those sudden speed changes? 😉
