    I found the mom subplot pointless there were scenes that went nowhere and the villain was horrible overall I only found it a good DCEU film other then that it was one of the worst things I ever seen

    SHAZAM! flopped massively at the box office, unlike Aquaman, which managed to gross over a billion dollars worldwide.

    The Santa scene at the end was fucking hilarious as shit! When he started swearing I was laughing!

    Hellboy is actually a lot of fun. A gore fest for sure, but fun. I think people are giving it an unfair try because they didn't get their third film of the original two movies.

    Shazam's a LOT better than Hellboy, imho but maybe you'll really enjoy both. :3

    Great review Tamara! Would've been wonderful to see a score made out of hair-flips in this episode. The hair flips could've even transformed you into a superhero, making you be a part of the Shazam family! Being a bunny is alright, not knocking it, but being a superhero is undoubtedly cooler. Anyway, it's Easter soon, so smart choice being a bunny, it'll be your time to shine soon as the Easter bunny.

    How many other people thought it was the hero in the opening scene?

  • Silver Lights In August

    I don’t know that a DC movie deserves any love simply for being related to other DC stuff that’s good. I don’t think that’s what you’re saying, but it’s a little implied by you saying “I love people praising DC”.

  • Gaz

    The cast, the effects, and a lot of the scenes are really good, but the story is all over the place. Once again DC decided to change half the movie at the last second and it shows.

    • Patrick Lyons
      Patrick Lyons 7 months ago

      I hadn't heard anything about that, and the plot matches Shazam's first story arc in the Nu52, so it doesn't seem like they changed much.

    Funny, one of his nicknames has long been "The Big Red Cheese.' And as far as the background. . . Oh boy. Created in the 30's, was called Captain Marvel, became more pouplar than superman, was shut down due to a mix of a DC Lawsuit, and a massive decline in Superhero sales in general, the name Captain Marvel got taken by Marvel Comics due to a lapsed trademark, DC buying Captain Marvel and calling him Shazam because Marvel had the trademark for Captain Marvel. And across the pond there was a ripoff hero Marvelman and a lot of craziness involving Alan Morre, Tod McFarlin, and Neil Gaimon.

    I saw Swiper as part of the cast for Dora! Also ever since It I’ve been more attentive to how good child actors can be and this is another example.

    It would have been better if Shazam bonded with Dr. Silvana over having mothers with the same first name.

    It was more fun to watch than Captain Marvel. Too bad it's made less than half the money in the same time period.

    This was one of the Best DC movies yet. I thought the adult actors were very believable as kids and l loved how silly the movie was. I must admit that DC has come a long from Bat Man Vs. Superman.
    I would also like to say I am also excited for Detective Pikachu. I already have my ticket.

  • Alan Caylow

    I assume you liked Zachary Levi as Shazam, as you didn’t mention him. He was perfectly cast. Really made you believe he was a kid in an adult superhero’s body. Wonderful performance. 😊

    You did well on choosing to do Shazaam over Hellboy when making this video. I went in not expecting much, as it was my brother's idea to watch the movie, and I did know it was well received, but in the end, I'm glad I went. It became not only my favourite DC movie thus far, but also a movie I prefer over the many Marvel films. Cheesy, but good cheesy, am I right~?

    Shazam was pretty awesome. Also, check out Zack Levi's man cave if you haven't, he's got a pretty neat setup. I'm waiting to watch Hellboy, I have NO interest in that Pet Semetary flick...
