            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.

                              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

                                    fun movie.  Really well done too.  My 11 year old LOVED it.  ..   except for that one scene...

                                      How is the Wicker Man mysogynistic . And more then movies about men opressing Women Mysandric

                                        I would recommend the original Hellboy movies for the next Tamara's Never Seen Before.

                                          im still mad though that you didn't like the neverending story. just read the book, and you'll be fixed.

                                              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.

                                                        Fun fact Shazam’s nickname is The Big Red Cheese

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

                                                            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”.

                                                              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.

                                                                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.

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.

                                                                            • Halbinoni
