Movie Diary 4/2/2019

Shazam! (David F. Sandberg, 2019). As templates go, Big is not a bad choice, and the cast and spritzy humor keep it moving along even at an eyebrow-raising 132 minutes. A few wobbles in tone notwithstanding, this thing gets by on good cheer, a spirited cast, and the obligatory Djimon Hounsou-as-wizard hugger-mugger. (full review 4/5)
