Yeah. It's bad.  A grown-up with superpowers behaving like a kid.

Outrageous. I say! Doomed to fail.  ;D

I jest of cos.

Frankly, I wasn't sure what to make of Zachary Levi casting as Shazam! But after seeing the teaser, I think he got it spot-on.

Shazam has always meant to be a character that is more light-hearted, less stoic and less serious. He may look like an adult but inside he is still young Billy Batson. So of cos, his reaction to getting all these superpowers is going to be child-like.

Is that really so bad given that how there is this endless stream of complaints about how 'dark' some of the DCEU movies are? So WB/DC decided to make a light-hearted superhero movie and people are still complaining?

Remember all the complaints about Burton's Batman from being too dark and violent? It slowing turned the first Batman movie franchise into a joke that was nipple armour and Geroge Cloney. History repeated itself when all the complaints about MoS and BvS give us Whedon's Justice League.

Looks like a light-hearted DCU movie for a change...but my image of Shazam from comics more "manly"...

The trailer looks to be following the origins cartoon quite closely... but I do agree Zachary's going to over do his comedy routine... And is that a fake muscle suit? Couldn’t they get someone with real muscles to better help suspend disbelieve? ;D

I think Shazam is going to be a hit for DCEU.

It's been reported that Shazam runtime is 132 mins.

After the bonehead decision to severely buttered Justice League's runtime to a 'mere' 120 mins, WB may have finally wised up that some films just need a longer runtime for the story to play itself out.

Aquaman was 143 mins and it did not really feel too draggy. 132mins for Shazam! sounds about right.

Entertaining enough, but mainly made for kids... Stay for the 2 post credit scenes, one early and one right at the very end.

Spoiler: show

Based on the 2nd post credit scene, it seems this movie was supposed to be screened before Aquaman? Wonder why the shuffle.

Read a lot of rave reviews on this ShaZam movie. A lighter tone and heart is what DCEU needs now...with the success of Aquaman and now ShaZam...let's hope that DC finally break the curse.

Just watched ShaZam and I must say it is a delightful movie...suitable for the entire family to watch. Zachary Levi and the kids have what I'll called on-screen chemistry. Not over the top kind of action but serves its purpose. This is just the origin story...I bet there will be a sequel coming soon. :)

Overall entertainment value, I'll give it a solid 8/10 movie!

Did not stay for the end credit as I need to rush to a restroom.


Tmr, Pet Sematary...also heard raving reviews about it.

Caught this last night @ CitySq . The rumbling bass from the voice of the seven sins... Stressed out the LFEs until it feels as if the drivers hv a tendency to fall off. This will be a demo material for bassheads.
Surround wise, I couldn't feel much activities... So I can't speak if this is a potential demo candidate for Atmos.

K2 ? Should be able to take the wonders n sensual impacts of sonics n visuals.
However story wise, may not be able to absorb some of the contents.
For example, the objectified representation of seven sins, which may confuse innocents mind of what's right or wrong, what's hidden and visible.
