‘Shazam!’ A Second Time

Shazam! a second time. What can I say about it? It’s cute.

I’m not saying the movie is bad because it isn’t but it’s definitely no Marvel movie. Marvel films are easily rewatchable. I found, after watching this a second time, that I will DEFINITELY not be watching it again.

The jokes didn’t land as frequently, the surprises weren’t as grand, the villain is even more annoying the second time around, and the story is so simple that a rewatch doesn’t provide anything new or exciting to the overall viewing.

Now, if I was a little girl, Shazam! would undoubtedly be one of my favorite superhero movies, for Shazam’s infectious personality is something, as a child, that I would’ve loved. Forget Superman. I like Shazam.

If you have children, please share this movie with them, if you haven’t already. It is totally the family-friendly comic-book movie I recommend to parents. (However, there is some foul language and some suggestive material throughout the film…validating its PG-13 rating.)

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a great day.

‘Godzilla: King of the Monsters’ At Home

Last year on my 21st birthday I went to see Godzilla: King of the Monsters and I was somewhat impressed but mostly disappointed. The monster action was fantastic but once again this type of movie was ruined by the humans in the story.

Recently, while enjoying a free trial of HBO on Amazon Prime Video, I decided to revisit the film and was very surprised by the enjoyability of the movie. Well, at least the first half.


The first half of the movie features the film’s two best action sequences with the rise of King Ghidorah versus Godzilla in Antarctica and Roda versus King Ghidorah. It’s pretty mind-blowing the extent of detail and epicness of these incredible monsters going at it full throttle.

The second half is undoubtedly the lamer side of things. The humans become the main event and the unnecessary drama/not-that-emotional sacrifices weigh down what ultimately could’ve been a freaking juggernaut of a monster movie experience.

However, after my recent return to the film, I’m actually to see what happens in Godzilla vs. Kong, which should be quite the epic showdown. We’ll see.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a spectacular day.

The Dark Knight Lives (SIXTY-TWO)

Blake Lively hadn’t felt this defeated since he stood on the bridge and watched Batman’s helicopter explode over the ocean. At that moment, he knew he was truly alone. But there was also a sense of determination.

Bruce Wayne had died knowing that Gotham would be safe under his protection. He strove to prove Wayne correct. Continue reading The Dark Knight Lives (SIXTY-TWO)
