Latest outage, problems and issue reports in social media:
  • Stickless9 EMP | Stickless (@Stickless9) reported

    Saw Shazam, and it was just a DC quality movie with terrible child actors. Started off well and then kept blue balling you until it slowed to a screeching halt. The villain was also literally sans undertale. Definetly put M&Ms in your popcorn for this one.

  • TyDugganWrites FutureSpiderScribe (@TyDugganWrites) reported

    @urbanbohemian Its frustrating these movies, with the singular exceptions of WW & Shazam, have been so terrible.

  • SDelanster Sean Delaney (@SDelanster) reported

    “Shazam” is the most realistic superhero movie because the villain is motivated by daddy issues. It is also the least realistic because it was set in Philadelphia and not ONE person said “Go Birds”. #Shazam

  • zer0sanctum Mort (@zer0sanctum) reported

    @Jayhaerys Shazam was good too, DC should just embrace the corny and not try too hard to be edgy. The edge will come later, first they need to get their fundamentals down Esp. Characters. Like how marvel really shines with non-earth plots (GotG, Thor:Ragnarok)

  • ThreePatchCocoa Drinkingcocoa (@ThreePatchCocoa) reported

    Aaaauugggh. I involuntarily ended up sitting through the Shazam movie with my kid for the *second* time and now my head is stuck on the intentionally terrible filk of "Eye of the Tiger" from that movie. 😂

  • Luiz_Fernando_J Luiz Fernando (@Luiz_Fernando_J) reported

    @BlackMajikMan90 @Planet__G @TaurooAldebaran @ponysmasher @ZacharyLevi @DCFUnited @DaveePena @dcumoviepage @_BrooklynBatman @PortalZacLevi I mean, theatrically. None of them were profitable during their theatrical runs. MoS and BvS just made into the break-even point money after the home video release. JL not even with the home video release could save its monstrous costs. Shazam won’t have this problem.

  • CinematicReturn Cinematic Return - Hamada Reborn father of Campea (@CinematicReturn) reported

    @youngshilldon Neither. Aquaman has terrible script issues, some awful jokes, and i found the camera work a bit shit. Its not going to age well, and for me has no repeat viewing potential. Frankly its mediocre. Shazam is another kind of mediocre, safe, none threatening and a cheap tv movie

  • Dreamer_Vikrant Vikrant Sharma (@Dreamer_Vikrant) reported

    @PVRSupport Please I so wanted to see Shazam in 4D in PVR Pacific at 3:10om show. But for last one hour dur to some technical issue not able to. An urgent solution will be appreciable.

  • MaiaFranklyn Squalid Snake (@MaiaFranklyn) reported

    I think Thor Ragnarok and Spiderverse and Shazam! work so well because they're not embarrassed about being superhero movies The biggest problem with, say, Man of Steel is that it was made by dudes who clearly saw the concept of Superman as something that needed to be Fixed

  • PauloVolDotVIII Paulo Perocho (@PauloVolDotVIII) reported

    Shazam is now no. 2 and the rest go down by 1 spot.

  • MasterSwrdRemix Master Sword (@MasterSwrdRemix) reported

    I finally watched Aquaman and it was as terrible as all the DCEU films before it. I really don't know how it got more of a pass than the others. The action was pretty good but the worst part was the music choice/soundtrack imo. Might see Shazam tomorrow. That actually looks good

  • PrithviDa1 Prithvi Heller (@PrithviDa1) reported

    @BBally81 @J69701749 @suunymaxi @Sharito742 @Luiz_Fernando_J I guess; some ppl have a general issue with DC having any success. Their brain can't handle the fact that DC has made some of the greatest comicbook films ever made. Shazam is a successful film whether they like it or not

  • youngshilldon Professor Pineapple (@youngshilldon) reported

    @NicholasMoore16 @chriswashere321 Wonder Woman was good. Aquaman was medicore. Haven't seen Shazam. Wonder Woman 84 looks like it might have serious issues.

  • SinemiaScam SinemiaScam (@SinemiaScam) reported

    @MrBobert It only seems to not work when people want to use the service they paid for, especially on big movie weekends. Captain Marvel, Shazam, and likely #Avengers End Game will have issues. I’m no fortune teller but the pattern is obvious 🔮

  • Caesar63BC Augustus Caesar (@Caesar63BC) reported

    @jtf18james I don't remember Shazam having so many moments are bad CGI. The problem is we haven't figured out how to do "weightlessness," especially when it comes to underwater scenes.

  • SHAAN87989064 READY for #ENDGAME (@SHAAN87989064) reported

    @Bosco685 @DAlter007 Lets face the facts...xmen:DP tracking even lower than shazam..which is one of most popular superhero has done a terrible job.

  • __ELITEDUHH Ken Ken (@__ELITEDUHH) reported

    @Yuey_J4 Movie look terrible plus they picked wrong person to play Shazam

  • NTBKompy Thou art a very ragged Kompy. (@NTBKompy) reported

    My brain in a nutshell, everyone. oh, and this human follicle we collectively call 'the sane side of our brain' said she went to see Shazam with her dad today and had fun. ... don't ask about the frazzled wig in the corner whining about job issues. That's just My Anxiety.

  • powerfulpunches toni. (@powerfulpunches) reported

    || haven't seen any DC movie except Shazam because I'm a Marvel fanboy. I'm nervous to join the Fandom because of how many problems appear in Marvel -- unsure if those cross into DC.

  • BBally81 Badr Bally (@BBally81) reported

    @J69701749 @suunymaxi @Sharito742 @PrithviDa1 @Luiz_Fernando_J Into the Spider-verse made around that rate last year and it more marketing than Shazam but nobody had an issue calling that film a success

  • itslisae Lisa ‘Double Nickname’ Fuqua (@itslisae) reported

    I didn’t know John Glover was in #Shazam, but there he was doing what he does best: being a terrible parent to a DC villain.

  • PatrickJosephB Patrick Brennan (@PatrickJosephB) reported

    So I’ve just found out that the hero known as Shazam used to be called Captain Marvel before copyright issues, and now I don’t know what to believe anymore

  • UCMJOATH Poppin Off (@UCMJOATH) reported

    I've been waiting 99yrs for THE ONLY SUPERHERO Captain Marvel--no pissing around just Shazam and ready to kick ass: one problem: same problem past 30yrs: shitty color cuz Hollywood rather than pay PG&E, went to large flashlights. Seen only 2 so-called recent color movies

  • ZL1_Johnny Johnny (@ZL1_Johnny) reported

    @AngelH_27 I mean I’ll let it slide that your scared but **** it I’m down for Shazam

  • ThatWightGuy Travis Wight (@ThatWightGuy) reported

    Just saw Shazam. To the guy who kept getting up to buy his obnoxiously loud kids popcorn: I hate you and your kids. People like you make the theater experience terrible.

  • Only_Grey *NotThePopularOpinion (@Only_Grey) reported

    @SuperWinterGirl @Snydercutshill Billy feels bad about this and makes it up to him by not only showing up as Shazam but by bringing Superman. I see it as an issue for me because it's making Billy feel responsible for Freddie being kind of a douche and making promises on behalf of other people.

  • willbrooker W I L L B R O O K E R (@willbrooker) reported

    @georgegustines @BTdocs Yes, sorry I just mean the movie version. I feel that when he becomes Shazam, he forgets the quest he's been on for the past several years, and just wants to goof around, making cash and enjoying minor fame. I felt he would use his powers immediately to track down his mother.

  • cdverse nilo (@cdverse) reported

    i have my issues with dc movies because the >:(everything’s dark and i’ve been bad at keeping up with the latest ones but i really liked shazam idk if this makes sense but YEAAA i liked it

  • kathfyt k. (@kathfyt) reported

    Hey it seems like your counter is broken @bryanherz @Shazam when I try to Shazam Heard It All Before by @dinahjane97

  • kathfyt k. (@kathfyt) reported

    @maaare It’s not working for me when I Shazam the number isn’t going up

  • MasalaNoodles MasalaNoodles (@MasalaNoodles) reported

    @Mister_BatfIeck After the Titans S1 and Shazam set leaks and the subsequent unnecessary meltdown from the fandom, I'm not going to judge Iain or #DCUTitans from leaked set pics. I'll wait for the show to air...and I hope the show shuts down whoever was using their mobile phone.

  • 1ntegr1ty Lohith K V (@1ntegr1ty) reported

    Cooling down after a red-hot work week with #Shazam! on @_PVRCinemas #IMAX

  • DudesofCinema ©ody (@DudesofCinema) reported

    Shazam deserves to make so much more money. Throwing it in the middle of April was a terrible marketing decision. They should’ve released it during the summer.

  • Luiz_Fernando_J Luiz Fernando (@Luiz_Fernando_J) reported

    @DevanshMDesai A late August/September release could be good for #Shazam, but terrible for the #Joker. Doesn’t make any sense to kill one of your own movies in order to improve the other’s chances. Believe me, regarding the US release, there wasn’t any other options viable. WB did it right.

  • gwcherubpatd K-money 🐢 (@gwcherubpatd) reported

    Shazam is probably the best DC movie hands down tbh

  • ReverseDJM ReverseDarr19J'onn #ARROWISOVERPARTY (@ReverseDJM) reported

    @jelani82 I agree. I have my own issues with SS, specifically the editing, Enchantress, and the 3rd act but it was entertaining for me. Shazam is imo up there with MoS and BvS for me

  • fvckmondays_ mozambique here (@fvckmondays_) reported

    @GoDiegoGo82 I want to watch Shazam :( but I’m down for whatever time you wake up

  • GreyTheTick Grey Carter (@GreyTheTick) reported

    Saw Shazam. I have a problem atic attraction to a character from the last third of the film. Genuinely uncomfortable.

  • nothingtoprove9 dcszlolsbqs (@nothingtoprove9) reported

    @ScottMendelson @shivampercy @Forbes Shazam kinda screwed up DC’s brand overseas you know,most audience don’t know and care about the budget,they just know before they got aquaman which was a big hit overseas but then they got Shazam...WoM is terrible in big foreign markets like China,Korea,Indonesia,U.K...+

  • NeepaGummapu Neepa Gummapu (@NeepaGummapu) reported

    @goldfishjiminie @nayoxx Plus I think, India's biggest problem is we don't have a proper charting system to let international artists know how they are doing in India. But now we have Spotify, Google music, Shazam and yt(I hate yt though) to show them some metrics

  • gallantsbatson trenton 🐼 (@gallantsbatson) reported

    @Kimberlyolson99 @RossButler I hate pretty much all dc films except Shazam. They’ve all been terrible films in the past along with their TV Shows: but they tried something new with Shazam and it’s already getting a sequel. It’s here to save the DC universe

  • bangwool89 🤟🏻Risa With Luv🤟🏻 (@bangwool89) reported

    It’s been a force of habit to Shazam BWL and I keep going back to it but it errors out my logout. OTL

  • ptsdspira Spooky (@ptsdspira) reported

    A power outage while waiting to see Shazam!’s post-credit scene. Truly, the Alamo Drafthouse provides the most immersive movie experience. (not sarcasm, now I have another reason to miss living in Texas)

  • glamafonic mrs. and mrs. faye navine (@glamafonic) reported from Elkridge Heights, Maryland

    My one issue with Shazam is one I expected given the mythos but uhhhh the ultimate version of oneself does not have to be a thin traditionally attractive able bodied person JUST SAYING.

  • actiongirl2005 action (@actiongirl2005) reported

    @ameegtwt i mean billy in his shazam form still has that excitement of a puppy which seems unnatural coming from an adult man but idk i dont see the problem

  • jack_gladney Sam Lyden (@jack_gladney) reported

    The only problem I have about the movie SHAZAM right off the bat (haven’t seen it yet) is that the kid actors stage name is Asher Angel. For a kid, that sounds a little promiscuous, because that name sounds like a pseudonym for a male stripper on an oil rig.

  • panpeterquill ryley (@panpeterquill) reported

    my mum accidentally broke my shazam mug that i bought last weekend at armageddon and from a mixture of how sad i was to see it broken, my annoying headache and just an overall sense of feeling tired, i started crying

  • The_Meatball_84 Brandon Valenza (@The_Meatball_84) reported

    @MovieBuff100 Shazam felt like a bunch of skits stitched together to me. And looked like a Nickelodeon movie. It just didn't work at all for me. It's pretty far down my list. But I'll watch it one more time when it hits digital

  • Sammy_mf_brown sammy lee (@Sammy_mf_brown) reported

    @elonmusk hey lets make an app. Shazam but for car noises. Essentially itll help diagnose the problem via sound... the same way mechanics have been for ages

  • parker969 james parker (@parker969) reported

    @ZacharyLevi Our semi broke down while we were out in Bakersfield California. Since we had the time had to go see Shazam again except this time in IMAX. I don't know if I've ever seen a better movie. Hopefully someday I'll get to meet Zachary Levi!!!

  • John0fTheDead86 JohnOfTheDead (@John0fTheDead86) reported

    @AngryJoeShow If you thought Aquaman was better than BvS then I'm going to assume that Shazam is absolute trash and you signed an embargo or something that says you have to promote the film to have screened it. How could you possibly look over the knife continuity errors alone.

  • DavidPoland David Poland (@DavidPoland) reported

    (6/8) I don’t need anyone to agree with me about the particular film. I don’t need to rag on the particular film. I had no problem dissing Shazam! Or Pet Sematary, both of which I wanted to love and both of which were poorly developed and directed (by whites guys) in my opinion.

  • Kneel2ThaCrown foREVer (@Kneel2ThaCrown) reported

    @DJizLurch so I saw Shazam and I have some mixed feelings. It was alright but I feel like they rushed to get to the superhero part and relied too much on telling jokes as opposed to telling a legit origin story. But I guess with this character I can see the problem lol

  • swpDave David Frey (@swpDave) reported

    @SinemiaApp ok... it’s been 3 days. Had to pay for Shazam out of pocket 3 days ago. Now the same error message! Can’t use the app with my card or online purchase!!! This is ridiculous! Help now!

  • Dhunter_23 domo (@Dhunter_23) reported

    about to watch Shazam. not a huge fan of DC but hopefully they don’t let me down

  • _Bosozoku rob (@_Bosozoku) reported

    shazam is ******* terrible

  • cakeylaura Laura Kate #FBPE (@cakeylaura) reported

    @filmnerdjamie @Zakiyyah6 ... an awful lot of people went to see it. Then you’ve got Endgame looming on the horizon, which is a cultural moment in a way most films just aren’t. It’s a must see, even for casual fans. Between the 2, Shazam just doesn’t have breathing room. Which is a terrible shame frankly.

  • cakeylaura Laura Kate #FBPE (@cakeylaura) reported

    @filmnerdjamie @Zakiyyah6 Increasingly I think Shazam’s problem is it came in the middle of a Marvel sandwich. We’ve got to remember that whilst comic book movie fans will go see every cb movie, your average movie goer will not. They’ve got finite money/time/interest. Captain Marvel came out first and...

  • Iceman__34 Caleb Braley (@Iceman__34) reported

    @Only_Grey @Stemot1978 Exactly! And I didn't necessarily have a problem with Shazam being un-heroic BECAUSE of the context. But like you pointed out, that context has to apply to every other character as well if you want to be intellectually consistent. 👍🏻
