Panther comfortably. Shazam is bigger superhero junk than the lesser of MCU...

Shazam, the bad cgi at least makes sense for the budget. No excuses for BP. I like both.

Not worse than WW.

On topic Shazam has a ton of weak points like the sister almost getting hit by a car

@kgb725: Shazam did have some weak spots but overall it was a cool and unique movie. They really made me like and feel for Billy Batson. As well as the villain was awesome. The only bad part was probably them just rushing the movie in third half (Typical mistake)

Despite the lack of action and budget, Shazam's got heart, whereas BP feels like just another film in the serie. There was something in Shazam that called the little boy in me.

@kingofwakanda: why is it a stomp?

It's not a stomp for me personally but I think the average moviegoer would overwhelmingly prefer BP. I'm saying only on this site would it not be a stomp. Any time BP is brought up people come out of the woodwork to trash it. It was probably overpraised in real life and now over-hated here.

I personally like both but prefer BP. Shazam was charming, with heart and took a lot of cues from Big, for better and for worse. Entertaining but a little formulaic.

@kingofwakanda: to be fair A LOT more people saw BP. With that being said, a large percentage of people who saw Shazam liked it so maybe not. It’s worth saying Shazam isn’t just a good superhero film, it’s a good film period.

I like Panther a little more. These are both of them really solid cbm’s. If someone was looking to get into current/modern cbm’s, I’d recommend either really

BP has a better villain, more entertaining scenes with Klaue, and some cool chase scenes, and the final battle has some solid moments. Both have their flaws with BP suffering from a weaker supporting cast (Seriously, killing Forest Whitaker off???), some blotchy CGI, and I don't care for any of the others except for M'Baku. The score is good, and Tchalla has a good arc (though it really sort of tapered off after Endgame). Its gone down for me a year and a half after seeing it, but its held off a bit longer than Shazam which I don't feel particularly inclined to rewatch.

Both have their moments but I don't say I'd do much other than skim through them.

BP has

Way better acting No.

Better Cinematography Yes.

Way better direction Yes.

Way better story No.

Way better soundtrack/score Yes.

Way better characters No.

Yet people say Shazam is better. Debatable

Only on the Vine. No, i think this match is close that's why i have made the thread, as you see i think 3 rounds BP Wins and 3 rounds Shazam Wins.

Answering your comment, since i haven't expressed my opinion and for me it's a tie. both are solid and good action flicks but nothing more.

Black panther

i loved Okoye but seriously hated the accents, being Kenyan the accents seemed like a hollywood assumption of how africans' and more specifically east africans (because wakanda is supposed to border kenya) sound like

Shazam was okay

I actually really liked shazam with its heart warming story, it's good for the inner child

Honestly I think the whole twist in both about children being abandoned was very touching, but in Shazam it made more sense to me

T'Chaka said her was going to take his brother in to pay for his crimes then just killed him, and left his parentless child alone, actually made no sense

But Billy's single mom leaving him is something that actually happens, and I thought that moment really made it a pretty great movie

I'll give a rewatch to both sometime then judge

Shazam, BP was extremely overrated. I really wanted to like the movie, but I couldn't get into tbh.

Black Panther. They are two very different films. Shazam might be a little more rewatchable, but Black Panther strives for more and ultimately succeeds. It’s also much more visually interesting. BP may have some weak CG but Shazam does as well. They are both great tho imo

Thats why its called an opinion and not a Fact. I found Shazam more entertaining and unique unlike The lion king 3 staring Black Panther
