At first glance, what’s not to like about this movie. Ryan Reynolds + Pokemon sounds way too good so I just had to see it for myself.
Detective Pikachu is about a guy named Tim Goodman who’s given up Pokemon training after the death of his mother and absence of his dad. When he hears about the mysterious disappearance of his father, Tim attempts to be like his father and become a detective for his death. Along the way, he finds his dad’s Pikachu who can talk to him.
Overall, I’d give this movie a stale rating. I felt like there were some instances throughout the movie where the plot just fell apart and ceased to make sense. On a more positive note, the CGI in the movie was really good. Even though this Detective Pikachu failed to bring a solid story, it paves the way for future live action Pokemon movies to come.
I know you’re probably asking: how has a simple trailer revolutionized the film industry? The new trailer for Spiderman: Far From Home is the first trailer to both change and spoil after the release of another movie.
The pictures above are both from the released trailers, but as you can see there is an obvious difference in Spiderman’s costume. The first trailer of this movie threw a lot of people off guard because Spiderman was wearing his original costume which suggested this movie took place before Infinity War and Endgame. However, this costume choice makes sense because it doesn’t spoil the fact that Spiderman comes back.
In conclusion, this trailer introduces even more continuity between the MCU movies. I think it’s a great marketing strategy because it encourages people to watch already released movies in order to enjoy a current movie.
Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, the most anticipated movie of all time is finally here. I’m here to tell you how to survive this 3hr and 2 minute monster of a film.
Sorry to break it to you guys, but there is no intermission during this movie. That means there is no time for bio breaks. Regulate the liquid you consume before the movie and try your best to go before. If you know you won’t survive the long runtime, I recommend downloading the RunPee app. They silently buzz your phone during a movie’s downtime, giving you enough time to escape. The app also provides small summaries for parts you may have missed which saves you from the scramble to keep up when you get back.
Time travel plays a major role in the plot, but I feel like the movie fails to adequately explain it. Marvel time travel works a lot different from regular time travel in the sense that anything the heroes do in the past doesn’t affect their world. Instead it makes an entirely different timeline. I wish I had a better understanding of this during the movie because it hurt my viewing experience a bit.
