Newbie Movie Review – Suicide Squad (2016)

Surprise, Surprise. Justice League is Actually a Good DC Flick Movie Truism: Maybe going into a movie with low expectations makes it better. I didn’t bother to see DC’s highly anticipated 2016 Suicide Squad in the theaters because it was so lowly-regarded among critics and viewers alike. So I just let it slip by. Cut […]

How Captain Marvel Stole Shazam’s Name

It’s no surprise that Captain Marvel and Shazam! both had movies released within weeks of each other this year.  Despite being from separate comic universes, the two superheroes have always been inextricably linked by a connection with their name. Shazam was the original Captain Marvel?! The DC Comics character Shazam was originally known as Captain […]

A Happy Shazam Review – A delightful time in the DC universe (for once)

I’d heard from the rest of the RunPee Family that Shazam was a disappointing remake, even though I had big hopes DC would finally put out a fun, lithe, winsome feature, with a superhero I could have fun with (unlike Batman, Supes and the rest of the grim gang). Sadly, I waited an abnormally long […]

Do you know what SHAZAM Stands For?

Shazam is not actually a name.  It’s not an expletive either, although shouting SHAZAM! sounds like one. Shazam is shorthand for various mythical gods and demi-gods who lend their immense powerful attributes to a chosen DC Champion. Do you know offhand who these mythological Shazam characters reference? Maybe you can guess. Or you might squeak […]

Movie Review – Shazam! – Great for Tweens, Less So for Adults

I’ll start by setting the context: I love action/superhero movies, but never read any comics. So, I’m basing this review strictly on how I see the movie, not how it compares to any other body of work. The Good: While I definitely didn’t like the movie, I’m sure young boys under 12 years old or […]

Is Shazam Part of the DC Universe or a Stand-Alone Film?

Rest assured, there is an actual answer here. According to every reliable internet source, Shazam is indeed set within the larger universe of the DC superheroes, at least from the ‘official DCEU starting point’ with Man of Steel, in 2013. Just so we’re all clear, DCEU stands for the DC Extended Universe. All good? Great — […]

Lego Movie 2 – Video and Lyrics to Everything’s Not Awesome

I was surprised how pleasantly musical the second official Lego movie was, with at least three, and perhaps four, really cheerily/moodily stand-out hits. The original Lego Movie only had the one notable Everything is Awesome tune. It was such an earworm that WB execs clearly decided to build on that base for the continuing adventures of […]

The Lego Movie 2 – Super Cool Song by Beck (video and lyrics from the end credit scene)

One of the fun surprises about The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part is how it became a full-blown musical ensemble, unlike in the three previous Lego films, which had only the one notable song (Everything is Awesome). In Lego 2, there was a moody reprise of Everything is (Not) Awesome, a show stopper bringing […]

The Lego Movie 2 – Video and Lyrics to Not Evil (by Tiffany Haddish)

In a Lego Movie sequel full of big musical earworm hits, Tiffany Haddish managed to pull the house down with her showstopper Not Evil, as Queen Whatevra Wa’nabi explains that while she’s a completely totalitarian Duplo Queen, she’s honestly just sweet and loving, and completely misunderstood. (Also, her name makes meta sense if you say […]

Movie Review – The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part

  What a charming, amusing, engaging, but ultimately fluffy bit of fun The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part is. It’s right up there with the enjoyment level of the original Lego film and The Lego Batman Movie, although perhaps a little less sensibly told, narratively, than either. The story rambles all over the place, with […]
