Shazam! (2019)
3 1/2 Stars out of 5


Shazam! is exactly what I expected the movie to be. Just based on the trailer I knew it was going to be a lot lighter in tone than the rest of the DCU films and that is a good thing. The movie isn't bad, but it isn't great either. You can do "lighter" and not delve into complete parody, which Shazam! does do. It's as if they are actually making fun of the very genre they are trying to lift up. I think because this movie and the rest of the DCU are so far apart in tone, that actually putting them in the same universe just doesn't mesh like they want it to . Like I said, it's not a bad flick and I thought Zachary Levi was a good choice in the lead role. Can't really see anyone else that could pull it off. You should definitely check out the movie, but look at it more like Big Meets Greatest American Hero instead of any of the recent Comic Book flicks that have come out. You'll be better off for it.

Taylor Swift - Lover

I really dig this song. I keep picturing her singing this in a smoke-filled Lounge club at 2am in Vegas. I have no idea why. I think maybe the song arrangement and how she is singing it reminds me of songs I've heard out in Vegas late at night. BTW, I had no idea she had a new album on the way (drops tomorrow, I think).

Horde Hands-On as Jack

We got a lot, and I mean A LOT of new gears content Monday at Gamescom. Just a couple of weeks to go before Gears 5 drops. I'll get to play it 4 days early. Can't wait. So pumped. Can't wait to play Horde Mode as well. They are really pushing the players out of their comfort zone, forcing you to play it differently than you would in Gears 2-4.

I'm sooooooooooooooo getting this. The collection looks dope as f*ck. Dayum!
When have you ever heard of a video game getting this kind of royalty treatment? It's well deserved. I absolutely LOVE the music in the game.

Veronica Mars (2014)
4 Stars out of 5


Anyone that knows me, knows I'm a HUGE fan of the series Veronica Mars and of course of Kristen Bell. Duh! Anyway, I just watched the Veronica Mars Movie for the first time today....5 years after buying the DVD. What? Yeah. Exactly. What indeed! Okay, some explaining is needed here of course. How can I be a fan and wait that long? Well, my original intention when I bought the DVD was that I was going to do a Veronica Mars DVD marathon, first with Season 1-3 of the TV show and then cap it off with the movie. But I just never could find the time to shoehorn this marathon into existence. Fast-forward 5 years and Season 4 now a reality and currently playing on Hulu and something I've know for awhile as something I was making plans to see, I just couldn't put off watching the movie once and for all. There. All caught up today.

Okay, so what about the movie? Was it any good? Well, it opens up great with the "previously on..." recap. But for some reason, even though Bell is there as Mars, I just wasn't into the movie the way I had envisioned it. It just seemed a "by-the-book" movie. Wasn't bad. Wasn't good. Just middle of the road. It took maybe 30 minutes before it finally "felt" like a legit Veronica Mars episode and once it did, I was so invested in where the story was going. Sure, Mars investigating a murder of someone she knew from High School has already been done before. See Season 1. But it still worked here. But for VM fans like myself, it's the cameos people want to see and it was cool to see all those familiar faces from the first 3 Seasons. I won't dive into spoilers here, if anyone plans on watching it for themselves. But I will say that I legit loved the Freaks and Geeks connection with Martin Starr, Dave Allen and James Franco. So yeah, I'm 5 years late to the party, but the movie was definitely worth waiting for. A definite Buy...which you already know I have.

Now I have Season 4 to watch......
