    I did end up seeing Civil War early as I didn't want spoilers as I thought they may kill someone. Did go early for IW and bought tickets for Endgame. I never really did early tickets until the reserved seating started. Now it is so easy to just buy tickets to seats you want at a time you want. If you can't get decent seats, just go to a different show.

    I deleted the Internet from my life when Infinity War premiered internationally since we had to wait a week for it to release in the US, and I'm planning to do the same here.

    It looks like a serious movie. Heavy. Creepy. Eerie. I'm looking forward to it.

    I know Thomas Wayne (Batman's Dad) is in it. I think a young Bruce Wayne is also rumored. So Batman will be much younger than this version of The Joker.

    Finally saw the Apollo 11 documentary this weekend. Terrific movie that documents the greatest single achievement of humanity since ice cream.

    Anyone see Shazam! yet? I might go this week. Not sure what is out right now. Dumbo? No thanks. Hellboy? @Cman60 said was awful. So I think the only choice is Shazam! which got pretty good reviews.

    Shazam looks fun, but I'm too uninterested in DC movies to go to the theater. Will watch once it becomes available to stream/buy. My boys are going to see Missing Link tomorrow with my wife's cousin. It is getting decent reviews, but performed terribly at the box office.

    I was pleasantly surprised by Shazam. Wifey even enjoyed it. We weren't expecting anything and got entertained for our movie dollar. Plot was ok. CGI was ok and honestly, just a tad bit understated for modern super hero movies which actually added to the movie's charm. It didn't hurt that the entire movie was shot against a Philly backdrop so we knew were a few of the things were. The producers played it safe with this and it succeeded. Unlike Hellboy. (Red Alert!)

    Good review of Shazam! You explained it well. I saw it today and had fun. Nothing special or serious, but still they did a good job for a character like Shazam. I'd probably give it a B or B-.

    When it comes to CGI, I'm slowly moving into the less is more camp.

    Agreed. The CGI in Shazam! was okay, except for those 7 deadly sins creatures. They looked pretty weak. That would be my complaint about the film. Sometimes it is funny, then other times it feels like a horror movie a little too intense for children. They should have balanced the tone a little better.
