I feel like I need to say this before any Marvel review this year, I’m a long time Marvel comic book fangirl, but I’ve never been a MCU can do no wrong fan girl. In my eyes, they’ve done plenty of wrong. I absolutely detested Spider-Man: Homecoming. Ok, that’s a bit harsh, I loved Michael Keaton as the Vulture but didn’t like much else about it.

Anyhoo we’re here to talk about the state of the Super Hero movie world, namely the folks at the World of DC has a new crowd pleasure on their hands, Shazam. Unfortunately, once again I find myself not in the “in crowd,” as I did not like this movie.
A 14-year old boy becomes an adult superhero in Shazam!. It’s every comics fan’s dream come true!
Based on DC Comics’ character, Shazam! is a free-wheeling, fun-filled epic about a kid who wants to find his mother but finds a family instead.
It’s been decades since I read the book, or even watched the first movie adaptation of Stephen King’s Pet Semetary, but despite attempting to convey the weight of King’s tale, it falls short.
