Ep396: Lightning Hearted

Today, the Kicking the Seat Podcast and Earth's Mightiest Critics capture lightning in a podcast with their deep dive into DC's Shazam! David Fowlie of Keeping it Reel, Emmanuel Noisette of Eman's Movie Reviews, and Don Shanahan of Every Movie Has a Lesson join Ian for look at one of the most entertaining and markedly different superhero movies in years.

Zachary Levi stars as a muscle-bound do-gooder who's secretly a fourteen-year-old boy tasked with ridding the world of evil. David F. Sandberg's film is many things: a (mostly) superbly done, spiritual throwsback to the 80s; a remake of Big thinly disguised as an action film; and a touching family dramedy that makes great use of all its characters--with one glaring exception.

The round-table gets into spoilers here, along with thoughts on whether or not Shazam! is appropriate for young children (Hint: It's not), so feel free to check back after it opens wide tomorrow night.

Episode 396 will not, under any circumstances, grab your staff!
