The Next Chapter of Shazam!
Shazam! Fury of the Gods, continues the story of Billy Batson who, upon reciting the magic word “SHAZAM!,” is transformed into his adult super hero alter ego, Shazam. Created by the same creative team, Director David F. Sandberg and writers Henry Gayden and Chris Morgan, the new movie reunites Zachary Levi (Shazam) with most of the original cast. Joining the cast are Rachel Zegler, Lucy Liu and Helen Mirren. The movie is set to open on March 17, 2023.
The Pac-Man Cometh
Blame it on the success of Sonic the Hedgehog, but a new live-action Pac-Man movie is in the making from Bandai Namco Entertainment. It’s hard to say if this will be any good. The original video doesn’t have much of a plot and despite his Saturday morning cartoons in the 1980’s, the big yellow chomper has only appeared on the big screen once in the forgettable movie, Pixels. It is said that the new story is being created by Chuck Williams, who is also responsible for, Sonic the Hedgehog. No word on when to expect it.
Clooney and Roberts Appear in New Romantic Comedy
t’s been awhile since we’ve seen George Clooney or Julia Roberts on the big screen. In fact, it’s been a while since we’ve seen either of them anywhere! However, they have reunited for a new romantic comedy coming to theaters this fall. They star in Ticket to Paradise playing a divorced couple finding themselves on a shared mission: to stop their lovestruck daughter from making the same mistake they once made. Read More >>>
Puss in Boots Back this Christmas
One of the best things that DreamWorks did was to create the spinoff movie Puss in Boots, an origin story of the main character. Is used a character that we all loved but in a new storyline. That movie came out in 2011. Now in 2022, that little orange tabby is back for The Last Wish. Will the studio be able to recreate the same magic after all these years? Maybe. Read More >>>
Black Panther: Wakanda Forever
With all of the main cast reprising their roles, Wakanda Forever continues its tale in grand form. It’s epic and beautiful, heart-warming and heart-breaking. It is less triumphant compared to other Marvel movies. It is a story about family, loss and moving on. It is a female-driven story with larger roles given to Wright, Bassett and Gurira while introducing a new character: human inventor Riri Williams (Dominique Thorne). Read More >>>
While some will call Lightyear a sequel to the Toy Story movies, it really isn’t but it IS related to them. The movie begins with a short message stating that in 1995, Andy, the boy featured in the films, was a huge fan of a movie that featured the Buzz Lightyear character, so much so, that he wanted a Buzz Lightyear action figure more than anything else for his birthday. The movie Lightyear is apparently that movie and now we get to see it just as Andy did. Read More >>>
Warner Bros.’ history of successful movies based on DC Comics characters has an uneven track record. After the second try at the Suicide Squad, Shazam and The Batman, things have been looking up for the studio. And the brief scene during the end credits of the film suggests more of the same to come. But in the meantime, Black Adam will have to do. And that is okay, I guess. Sometimes you want steak and other times, a McDonald’s cheeseburger just sounds really good. Read More >>>
The visuals are amazing and the characters likeable, but Luck loses it way weighing down the story with lots of gizmos, gadgets and objects used for good luck. With each new gimmick, there is a lot of explanation which slows the story down to a crawl. There is just so much information thrown at you that you just want the storytellers to get on with it. Luck becomes pretty dull that no amount of dancing bunnies is able to fix. Read More >>>
Gigi and Nate
Gigi and Nate is at its best when it focuses on the family and their small town. Going through a crisis like this would be devastating for any family, but the film makes a classic Hollywood mistake of portraying Nate’s family as being quite affluent. As a dad myself, I couldn’t help thinking about how we would have been wiped out financially if we experienced a similar situation and therefore, I found myself not completely relating to this family. Read More >>>
See How They Run
There’s a really good idea here, and though the storyline is pretty convoluted, it’s still pretty good. But it’s buried underneath too many characters, many of which don’t appear to have any motive to kill. The title suggests that this will be a lively and energetic romp. Instead, it’s sluggish and at times, downright boring. But worst of all, it’s not funny. Read More >>>
