Shazam! Comes to 4K UHD Combo Pack, Blu-ray Combo Pack and DVD Special Edition tomorrow and here’s a quick breakdown.

Billy Batson’s (Asher Angel) is a streetwise 14-year-old foster kid who is able to turn into the adult superhero Shazam (Zachary Levi), courtesy of an ancient wizard. The fun ensues when Billy starts to test his new super powers with his foster brother Freddy (Jack Dylan Grazer). With a hilarious flying test and his new found ability to shoot electricity from his hands the movie quickly sets a humorous tone. The comparisons to the movie Big are fair … and that’s a good thing. So what would a young teen do if he were instantly double his age? Have a blast … kid style!

My favorite thing about Shazam was the film’s life lessons and feel-good moments. The entire cast was extremely likable, especially Levi as the unique super hero. The best moment of Shazam is when Billy discovers that the love he was looking is right in his foster home.

Next to Wonder Woman, Shazam is the best movie offering from Warner Bros since the Dark Knight Trilogy. The film as a whole delivers effectively in multiple genres: Action, Adventure, Drama and Comedy. The really great thing about the movie is that it’s fun for the whole family.

  • The Magical World of ShazamClocking in at around 27 minutes long, this featurette is pretty in-depth. A lot of the cast and crew are shown here as you get cool behind the scenes look at the entire film making process.
  • Super Fun Zac3 minute long featurette of the very charismatic Zachary Levi.
  • Deleted & Alternate Scenes – Over a half an hour! Who doesn’t love deleted scenes?
image
  • Gag Reel – 3 minutes … short but sweet.
  • Who is Shazam? Around 5 minutes long. Nice brief look at the history of the DC Comics character.
  • Carnival Scene Study A ten minute look at a key action sequence from the film.
  • Shazamily ValuesAround 6 minutes in length. A breakdown of Billy’s Family. One of the best parts about the film itself.
  • Exclusive Motion Comic: “Superhero Hooky”

Thanks to Warner Bros for sending me a copy for a review.

Shazam HD video quality is excellent and the Dolby Atmos audio is delightfully bombastic! I even loved the credits, which includes very whimsical animation starring some of DC’s finest characters. The movie’s only flaw may be the original release date of the film … this is blatantly a Christmas movie which Warner Bros decided to release in April. Nevertheless, this is a super hero film that deserves attention and repeat viewings, no matter the time of year.

Final Grade A-

Available at Amazon for a special price.

Batman: The Definitive History of the Dark Knight in Comics,…

Batman: The Definitive History of the Dark Knight
in Comics, Film, & Beyond Hardcover

Dive into the history of one of the greatest Super Heroes of all time with this deluxe book exploring the creation and legacy of the Dark Knight.

Since his debut in Detective Comics in 1939, Batman has become an iconic part of American popular culture. From his early days as a master sleuth to his campy, TV-inspired “New Look” in the 1960s and gritty reinvention in the late twentieth century, Batman has remained popular as a rare superpowerless hero: a man with genius-level intellect, mastery of martial arts, and a singular, obsessive mission to rid his city of crime, whatever the cost to himself.

This book celebrates Batman’s 80th Anniversary in 2019 and traces his history across eighty years of comics, cartoons, live-action TV shows, and major motion pictures exploring the history and legacy of the Caped Crusader through his many incarnations. Featuring exciting never-before-seen imagery and commentary from key writers, artists, filmmakers, and more, this book also includes a variety of removable insert items, providing a unique, immersive experience for fans. Comprehensive, compelling, and filled with previously unseen treasures, Batman: The Definitive History of the Dark Knight in Comics, Film, and Beyond is the ultimate guide to the legendary hero.

Michael Keaton will be writing the book’s foreword and Kevin Conroy will be writing the book’s intro! 

Preorder at Amazon.

They’ll be at SDCC Booth #3721 and giving away free Batman: The Definitive History posters featuring the beautiful front & back cover artwork by John Guydo.
