    Well that scene where they
    hide inside the whale
    does not sound like super fun time in cute and not-gross surroundings :p

    "gross and sad"? It's just a nod
    to Pinocchio :)

    There already is a science advisor. Dr. Shin played by Randall Park.

    I’m really not one of those nitpicking fans but is this a grey nurse shark?

    It looks a bit chunky to be a grey nurse. Maybe they wanted it to be a great white? If so, it’s impossible to keep a great white in an aquarium unless it’s a kilometre long and that would be too expensive and most people wouldn’t even see it. If it was less than that it would die

    No, just an editor that's left the f**k alone by studio execs.

    image source

    Sound under-water is a complex subject, the range of frequencies that can be used for communication and sound Intensity (measured in decibels) varies due to several factors such as water salinity, water temperature and pressure.

    Which is why Whales communicate at different vocal frequencies from Dolphins as they live at different depths.

    Suffice to say, we don't want to go into such details for Aquaman movie.

    Oops. Oh well, it’s still going to be a fun flick and some Neil degrasse Tyson type person will probably point out everything if people’s curiosity is sparked

    It's a movie with people living under the sea so I'm not expecting a super accurate aquatic life. Sure the more accurate the better but that's life.

    Agreed, the purpose of this movie is to entertain and get people interested in Ocean worlds, it's not aiming to be scientifically accurate movie.


    If after watching this movie people do some research and find out the facts vs fiction, they will gain more knowledge, that's all.

    Very true! They should have. I know these all are fictional movies but I don't know why I am not able to digest the CGI of this movie

    On a related topic...

    Even though sound travels better/faster underwater (because it’s a denser medium), actually speaking underwater is quite unimpressive. Many scuba divers have done this experiment (tricky - because after you shout/exhale, you immediately have to reinsert the regulator before inhaling :eek:). And the resulting sound is very muted and muffled (and is mostly inaudible to your buddy). This is because sound doesn’t transmit well from one medium to another - e.g., the air medium of vocal cords to the water medium of the ocean.

    But since Atlanteans are water-breathers, perhaps their vocalizations are “normal” and efficient. :word:

    Aww snap Randall Park is absolutely brilliant! Him being in Aquaman has already elevated it's awesomeness by at least 44%. He stole the show in Ant Man and was the truth as Kim Jong-Un in The Interview. I didn't even know it was the same guy until a mate told me when we saw Ant Man & The Wasp.

    Loudest animal on Earth ? Is their communication more evolved and complex compared to Human language ?

    Gee that’s wild. I wonder how long it will take before the scientists give it ecstasy like that octopus
