There’s something to be said about B-list superheroes. The average moviegoer (who doesn’t have a doctorate in comic-book lore) has lower expectations, and we also don’t have as many preconceived notions about what the movie should be. “Shazam!,” featuring a game turn by Zachary Levi and a cadre of good child actors, slots nicely into this space, calling to mind “Big” (and at one point directly referencing the Tom Hanks classic) but also making me hope the kid-on-the-inside Shazam can exchange dialog with the dour Batman at some point.
For about $370, you can get an Annabelle doll from Mezco Toys, and unlike most movie memorabilia, this piece won’t just sit around and collect dust. If it’s anything like the real deal, it’ll move around your house, offering daily surprises and laughs.
