If anyone ever bothers to ask, my all-time favorite movie is actually the TV Mini-Series “V” for me it’s a near perfect movie. Maybe not technically and sure it’s special affects don’t hold up to today’s standards, but from a story point of view I think it’s the perfect film. It’s a film that’s about something more than just explosions it asks what you would do if fascists took over. Would you be collaborator or resistance fighter and it one line in the movie has always stuck with me – “One man’s resistance is another’s terrorist.” I hoped that Captive State would scratch that itch for me, sadly it fails on almost every level. Maybe that’s harsh.

Pity the new poster is a generic ‘heroes looking into the sky with villain outlined in background’ piece (though at least they’re not all looking at the same piece of sky.
Warner Brothers is going hard with Shazam and showing their full confidence in the film by first giving Critics a chance to see the movie a full month before release, by now giving fans the chance to see the movie 2 weeks early. In an exclusive partnership with Fandango you can get tickets to see the film March 23rd. Go there now, I doubt it tickets will be available by the end of today.
