Raalsalghul:It's been obvious ever since bro.

What's your thought on the new season?
|Re: DC EXTENDED UNIVERSE (FILM) by Nova15: 1:49pm On Jan 08|
I think Snyder did a good job with BVS. I had to download and rewatch the movie and I really appreciate his work with it. I feel he should have been allowed to finish JL. It would probably have done far better than it did.
PS: I think Matt Bomer would have made a better superman than Henry Cavil and I think Ben Affleck's batman is the best.

So guys, how do u think Shazam would be rated and reviewed by critics? Let's predict the reviews.
Shazam is too childish and lighthearted, too much humour and C. G. I unlike a marvel film. [collider]
Shazam is a waste of a film. Why go to the cinema and watch this mess of a film when u can look forward to avengers endgame or watch the real captain marvel m0vie. [john campea]
Zachary levi looks childish and ridiculous just as shazam itself! [comicbook.com]
Shazam tries too hard to be a marvel film with bright colors and a spiderman wannabe, no wonder its a jumbled mess. [cinema blend]
This film is too lighthearted and c0mical with a cart0onish hero, dodge it. [guardian]
Shazam to beat Justice league and suicide squad gross, great film though. DC is getting it. [mark hughes, forbes]
Rand0m reviews that'll make RT give shazam a 27 rating goes like:
What a mess! Trash of a film. Watch the real captain marvel and save m0ney for endgame.
I knew it was going to be an0ther mess of a film. It's DC after all.
Loved MOS, BVS, SS but shazam is a mess. Dodge it. Watch s0mething else.
Shazam is an anagram for SHitloAd ZigzAg Mess of a film. The dceu should be canceled. add yours.

Lol, but you know its true. You can't dispute this
|Re: DC EXTENDED UNIVERSE (FILM) by TheKingIsHere: 10:35pm On Jan 08|
Exactly. Its like they gave them a script to read from.
|Re: DC EXTENDED UNIVERSE (FILM) by Raalsalghul: 10:36pm On Jan 08|
Nova15:Problem with BvS is the plot and CGI.
|Re: DC EXTENDED UNIVERSE (FILM) by TheKingIsHere: 10:36pm On Jan 08|
True words bro
|Re: DC EXTENDED UNIVERSE (FILM) by TheKingIsHere: 10:37pm On Jan 08|
The major problem I had with BVS is the fight with doomsday. I didn't feel the fight scene at all. Also, the lex luthor was crappy
|Re: DC EXTENDED UNIVERSE (FILM) by TheKingIsHere: 10:41pm On Jan 08|
I disagree with you. Don't be deceived by the trailer rather follow the news update on this movie. So far, we have been informed that Shazam will be battling several other villains in this movie not just one, so definitely there will be humor but it will be mixed with action.
They also intend to make the movie a family film, maybe that's why you feel its too childish.
|Re: DC EXTENDED UNIVERSE (FILM) by Raalsalghul: 10:43pm On Jan 08|
Minemrys:On the contrary, I think the reviews for Shazam will be slightly better than Aquaman eapecially now that there's rumors of Marvel bias.
|Re: DC EXTENDED UNIVERSE (FILM) by IKON360(m): 10:55pm On Jan 08|
Raalsalghul:all those complaining of CGI, if you tell them to do the stunts, they will just die in 20 secs.
|Re: DC EXTENDED UNIVERSE (FILM) by Nova15: 11:25pm On Jan 08|
The plot was perfect
|Re: DC EXTENDED UNIVERSE (FILM) by Minemrys: 12:06am On Jan 09|
TheKingIsHere:i'm been sarcastic bro. Read my statement again. Am trying to hint at how critics would review the film like they've always d0ne Dc films.
|Re: DC EXTENDED UNIVERSE (FILM) by BlackManta(m): 12:09am On Jan 09|
The plot was good but it could have been great if not for that "Martha" scene.
That was just lazy writing.
|Re: DC EXTENDED UNIVERSE (FILM) by Minemrys: 12:11am On Jan 09|
Raalsalghul:keep believing that. There's one thing i'll assure u, the criticism would be negative, over negative sef and the reviews fr0m critics would all pr0m0te or market Avengers Endgame. Watch. Shazam would be a great film though bt it will be a victim just as watchmen was.
|Re: DC EXTENDED UNIVERSE (FILM) by Minemrys: 12:13am On Jan 09|
BlackManta:the martha scene could have been good if written or acted well. That was poor acting from Cavill and over acting on the part of Ben Affleck. That scene was rushed and badly scripted.
|Re: DC EXTENDED UNIVERSE (FILM) by Nova15: 12:22am On Jan 09|
Which of the Martha scenes?
|Re: DC EXTENDED UNIVERSE (FILM) by Minemrys: 12:34am On Jan 09|
Raalsalghul:the problem with the plot was that it focused too much on Batman and less of Superman. It didn't duel on the rivalry, their differences. The story didn't show supes viewpoint on how crime should be tackled as against that of batman. I was expecting bats and supes to at first clash during a crime that leads to the criminals getting away and Bruce getting injured and supes taking batman to the gotham police to be arrested only for batman to get released. Then s0mewhere in the news, clark hears the criminals that had escaped were hunted and killed by 'the batman', then that rapist who got killed in pris0n and a scene featuring joker to show clark how much damage the batman has caused. It would then be revealed by Lois that Lex had the 2 criminals and those terrorists killed. Then supes would go to reveal it at that hearing only for every0ne to die. Supes goes into exile, c0mes back, saves Lois, c0nfr0nts Lex and alm0st kills him. Supes beats Lex but leaves to go get bruce on his side. Bruce still hates him, they fight for 15 minutes. Bruce coaches clark abt justice then supes asks if it would be justice to kill him and let martha die. The why did u say that name line. Then supes would tell him an inn0cent w0man's life is at stake, how Lex planned everything and may be planning m0re. Supes would go, he believed so much in humanity but what batman has bec0me was inhuman and that may be what and who he needed in saving the woman. Supes tells bruce, he isn't the enemy bt the victim [flashback on how bruce's parents were killed] then Bats would go: "martha doesn't die tonight". Everything happens same way here on out.
|Re: DC EXTENDED UNIVERSE (FILM) by Raalsalghul: 5:51am On Jan 09|
Minemrys:Here comes your pessimism again. Well, time will tell. Only thing I'll say is that people now know more about the bias against D.C and so the critics will thread carefully.
|Re: DC EXTENDED UNIVERSE (FILM) by Minemrys: 7:00am On Jan 09|
Raalsalghul:people always accuse me of being pessimistic. You say people kn0w abt the DC bias, lol. Not every0ne, just DC fans, and trust me, people still believe in critics. Aquaman was just fortunate to be the excepti0n, partly becos of James Wan. Shazam won't be that lucky. Critics would turn it to shreds and use it to create publicity for Avengers Endgame. Why did i say this? Creating a positive review with a fresh rating like 84 percent could make it stay l0nger in cinemas and perform well, that w0n't help Avengers Endgame, and also they w0n't want it to be a threat to Captain Marvel. So trust me, it would be the victim i.e like JL was. JL wasn't a good film but c0mpared to the 'other' film was on a similar level, but guess what? They treated that film like it was the best. Its publicity.
|Re: DC EXTENDED UNIVERSE (FILM) by Nova15: 7:33am On Jan 09|
I disagree with your view abt the plot being too focused on batman. The plot was fucsed on them evenly.
There's no rivalry between them the only thing Clark dislikes abt the batman is the fact that he is judge, jury and executioner which the plot explained very well.
How can superman confront and beat lex, almost killing him when he has his mother hostage?
|Re: DC EXTENDED UNIVERSE (FILM) by Raalsalghul: 7:54am On Jan 09|
Minemrys:You said worse than this for Aquaman, look at how that turned out. I'll still reiterate it: the reviews for Shazam will be better. Even if it isn't, it will be successfull financially.
|Re: DC EXTENDED UNIVERSE (FILM) by nani667: 8:15am On Jan 09|
|Re: DC EXTENDED UNIVERSE (FILM) by TheKingIsHere: 8:24am On Jan 09|
Oh, okay. Didn't notice
|Re: DC EXTENDED UNIVERSE (FILM) by Raalsalghul: 1:08pm On Jan 09|
TheKingIsHere:I just noticed that the director of Shazam David Sandberg has worked twice with James Aquaman. Infact, he owes his career to Wan. I also noticed that his two last films have positive reviews. Well, I'm not implying anything, but the worst that can happen to Shazam is 50-60 percent on RT.
|Re: DC EXTENDED UNIVERSE (FILM) by hulk616: 1:18pm On Jan 09|
Raalsalghul:and failing in box office 100M
|Re: DC EXTENDED UNIVERSE (FILM) by chrisbaxtian(m): 1:21pm On Jan 09|
it might just be another surprise hit like aquaman
|Re: DC EXTENDED UNIVERSE (FILM) by hulk616: 1:26pm On Jan 09|
chrisbaxtian:never this time there are lot of competitions shazam will not survive
|Re: DC EXTENDED UNIVERSE (FILM) by IKON360(m): 2:21pm On Jan 09|
Minemrys:hehehehe, if you had written the script for Daw of Justice, it would have done far worse than it is perceived to have done lol. See script
|Re: DC EXTENDED UNIVERSE (FILM) by MJBOLT(m): 2:24pm On Jan 09|
no matter the kind of script that movie will still fall apart,it was too complex to be the second movie released in the DCEU
|Re: DC EXTENDED UNIVERSE (FILM) by Minemrys: 3:18pm On Jan 09|
IKON360:if u say so. Still yet it would've made the Martha scene believable and em0ti0nal.
