Below is the synopsis of "Aquaman," per Rotten Tomatoes.

From Warner Bros. Pictures and director James Wan comes an action-packed adventure that spans the vast, visually breathtaking underwater world of the seven seas, "Aquaman," starring Jason Momoa in the title role. The film reveals the origin story of half-human, half-Atlantean Arthur Curry and takes him on the journey of his lifetime--one that will not only force him to face who he really is, but to discover if he is worthy of who he was born to be... a king.

"Aquaman" holds a fresh rating of 66 percent and an audience score of 86 percent on Rotten Tomatoes, at the time of publication. The blockbuster gained acclaim for Jason Momoa's performance as Aquaman and the visual-compelling scenery. It's already regarded as the second-most praised DCEU film, right behind "Wonder Woman." David Sims for The Atlantic wrote:

Aquaman serves as further evidence that the DC Universe can thrive if it embraces the grander sincerity of its godlike heroes rather than trying to ground them in the real world. Yes, Momoa knows how to have a good time amid all the underwater special effects and encyclopedic world-building. There’s plenty of humor and fun to be found in a film where Dolph Lundgren rides a giant seahorse into battle. But Aquaman works because it isn’t laughing at itself—it’s both joyously whimsical and confident in its own seaworthiness.

Below is the synopsis of "Bumblebee," per Rotten Tomatoes.

On the run in the year 1987, Bumblebee finds refuge in a junkyard in a small Californian beach town. Charlie (Hailee Steinfeld), on the cusp of turning 18 and trying to find her place in the world, discovers Bumblebee, battle-scarred and broken. When Charlie revives him, she quickly learns this is no ordinary, yellow VW bug.

"Bumblebee" holds a fresh rating of 94 percent and an audience score of 83 percent on Rotten Tomatoes, at the time of publication. The blockbuster is being regarded as one of the better "Transformers" installments. Brian Lowry for CNN wrote:

Even grading on a curve, though, this is a solidly executed story, tapping the familiar theme of a troubled kid whose life is changed by an extraordinary visitor. And it's grounded in reality thanks to Steinfeld, a budding star basically reprising the character she played in the indie film, "The Edge of Seventeen," only with a lot more destruction of property.
Joining a movie series that has consistently added up to less, creatively speaking, than the sum of its parts, for once there really is more to "Bumblebee" than meets the eye.
