Cinema fans gave Boxing Day releases a big thumbs-up at the North Rockhampton Birch Carroll and Coyle yesterday.

When it comes to Ralph Breaks the Internet, the second in the Wreck-It Ralph franchise, those in the know say watch it until the very end of the credits.

Alex Murray recommends it for the whole family and Stephen Miller gives it a five out of five.

And when it comes to Jason Momoa fans, there is a Rockhampton trio who has met him four times between them.

Tony O'Connor met the Hawaiian star in Perth some years ago, "around Game of Thrones time.”

Emma Mills saw him at Comic-Con in 2014.

And Chrystal Hegney met him twice, first at SuperNova in 2017 and this year at the San Diego Comic-Con.

They reckon the movie, and its "half naked” star are "pretty great.”

The 12.30pm first-day session for Aquaman booked out with plenty more sessions to go throughout the holidays.
