Wonderful Wednesday friends! This past weekend was a holiday weekend so guess what? That meant movies with the family! I had mentioned that I want to do a review of the Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society movie in relation to the book but well I got out voted for super hero movies.
We started with the movie I’m going to tell you about today. Shazam!
The movie came out in April 2019. So I am not too far behind on the ball for this one. I will be honest, we just don’t go to the actual movies much anymore. Most of the time we just wait for them to be available on Vudu for rent or purchase.
So on to the review. This movie is of course based off of the comic books. I am not a huge comic book fan but I have generally enjoyed most of the super hero movies of the last couple of decades. I’m almost 40 what can I say, it’s what my generation is doing!
A 14 year old foster kid named Billy Batson discovers his inner super-hero, in this hilarious, touching tale. As his new found alter ego Shazam he discovers so much about himself and what being a hero really means. I watched with the hubs and the son. They both enjoyed this as much as I did. I really enjoyed it being a true family friendly movie. It had a PG-13 rating, I don’t recall a lot of language or anything like that. It was just a fun story for us to all watch. There was some violence but it all felt very much like comic-book violence if that makes any sense. The extra hard punches and the catching flying buses. There were a few people thrown out of a building that may be a little concerning for younger viewers but overall it was a great family movie.
What does home really mean and when do you know you have found it? Check out this great movie for a heart-warming experience. If you want to bump that up even more, watch it with family!
Giving this one 🍿 🍿 🍿 🍿 🍿 out of 5. It is a much watch for 2019!
Love and 🍿,
