    (”Shazam!” is briefly mentioned in this.)

    How much would you pay to see a movie? Ten bucks? Fifteen? Wait for it to hit Redbox and $1.75? How ‘bout $10,000? That’s how much opening-weekend tickets for Avengers: Endgame are going for on eBay in some places, according to Fandango.com. And while that might seem a bit overpriced, get this: Someone spent $15,000 […]

  • Avengers: Endgame Lands in First With a Snap
    (”Shazam!” is briefly mentioned in this.)

    In Avengers: Endgame, Thanos refers to himself and his dastardly actions as an “inevitability.” But he could’ve been describing the financial fate of the film itself. It seemed indeed inevitable that Endgame would finish the weekend No. 1. The real question was by how much. Could it earn more than the $257.7 million its forebear, […]

    (”Shazam!” is briefly mentioned in this.)

    Detective Pikachu came to catch ‘em all—all of us moviegoers, that is. But let’s face it: No matter how cute the little electric rascal might be, and no matter how many volts it packs in that strange little tail of his, Pikachu ultimately fainted before the might of Avengers: Endgame. For the third-straight week, Endgame […]

  • ‘Shazam!’ Review

    BY:

    Sure, it’s a comic book origin story, hot on the heels of one comic book origin story released four weekends ago and just ahead of another comic book origin story coming next weekend. But Shazam! is fun and funny, anchored by a charismatic actor who brings some childlike joy to a genre that seems unlikely to wear out its welcome anytime soon.

    shazam review Zachary levi

    We’ve come a long way from those dour DC Comics films.

    You know the type. “The Dark Knight” trilogy. “Man of Steel.” The unwatchable “Suicide Squad.” They pretended superhero movies

    The “Big”/”Vice Versa”/”17 Again”/”13 Going on 30” shtick never gets old.

    Heck, the latest superhero film clings to the template like Glad Wrap. Just say, “Shazam” and a feisty foster

Want even more consensus?

Skip Rotten Tomatoes, they’re biased SJWs too afraid to criticize things like the Ghost Busters reboot. Avoid giving them ad revenue by using the minimalist alternative, Cinesift, for a quick aggregate:

by steel stool sample on Shazam!
Shazam was good

The three main characters were white. (Or maybe (((white))) but they passed anyways.) So that was a change. But because of that, they have to cram as much """diversity""" in as possible where they can. So every single side character or extra is a strong, powerful, independent black woman or whatever. Pretty gay. But the setting of a foster home makes the diversity thing kinda' fit so I didn't mind it as much. Lots of empowered Asian men for their Chinese audience. And a manlet Asian man with a white girlfriend one or two times in the background, to appease the hapas reddit forum. (AMWF) lol...Also there was only 1 scene where they brought extra attention to it. (Some feminist women saying she didn't need to be saved.) And the guy even made a self aware joke about it talking about "getting woke."Instead of praying properly and holding hands, (which was a crucial theme of the movie), they instead watered it down for a more global audience and just had them say "all hands on deck." Like a football team about to do a cheer before a game. Pretty gay. But the implied Christian / moral elements were nice for a change. Afterall, the bad guys are literally avatars of the seven deadly sins. So it's a reoccurring theme throughout. There's some gruesome moments and bad language, so maybe only take your preteens and up. But it should be good for a family outing. So I guess it's anti-god a little bit by not being overt, but actually Christians will most likely enjoy the film.As far as the "neo-marxism" ratings. They just have a lot of bullsh*t equality themes as usual. Sharing. Redistributing the wealth. You know, the usual. Nothing too nuts.One thing I really liked was how they showed what happens when you tell a child they're evil and will never be good enough. (Spoiler, he turns into a bad guy.) To me, it is exactly what's happening with our anti-white society. They're pushing white hetero kids too far and creating skinheads.Go see the film. Pay to see it if you want. Don't expect much, it's just a slapstick kinda movie with silly banter throughout. (My gf said she wished there was more character development with all the supporting cast, and that she didn't feel much with the main character's past.) So imagine an Adam Sandler movie and you'll be good.
