Shazam might not be a top tiered superhero movie and not near my personal top even amongst DC’s lineup, but it is still a lot of fun and Zachary Levi embodies the role so well and can’t wait to see what he and director Sandberg have in store.
Life Partners isn’t a great movie but succeeds thanks to its cast, Leighton Meester and Gillian Jacobs in particular who have great chemistry together; it’s also a breezy film never overstaying its welcome. The Blu-ray released by Magnolia is very basic between the fluff featurettes to so-so audio and half-decent video transfers.
Scream 4 might’ve come a few years too late after the last installment, but I for one enjoyed it as Wes Craven and company were able to update the franchise for the 21st century. The original cast slips into their roles nicely while the new generation offer up a certain and needed freshness, though writer Williamson didn’t succumb to the horror sequel clichés (though there a few).
