Kids do that though.

Detective Pikachu was a let down. Didn’t expect a masterpiece but it was too dark for younger kids (several kids cried during my screening), the plot was predictable and just dull. 

Before the whinny “but it’s a kids film” mob roll in, plenty of kids films have decent stories.

also Justice Smith is the fucking worst. He’s 2 for 2 in recent shit roles

To be fair none of it was anywhere near as sad as that part from the first animated movie.

I thought Detective Pikachu was fine, an amusing distraction. Most of the fun was playing spot the background gag. I didn't think it was dark at all and my packed screening was surprisingly well behaved. Yeah, Justice Smith just can't carry a film. 

Good for Pokémon fans, nondescript for everyone else.

Am I alone in thinking that it was the same Pokemon that featured all the time in Detective Pikachu? Perhaps that was the point, but I felt like it was the same 15/20 or so Pokemon who kept turning up in different parts of the film. I thought there was a missed opportunity to ram it full with as many little nods as possible, but maybe that's just me. There were also a number of Pokemon I didn't really recognise, but then again I haven't played it since Pokemon Gold & Silver. 

I thought the film was fun enough and the Pokemon that were on show looked really good for the most part. I found Mewtwo quite jarring to look at, especially when he was talking. Is there any reason that he looked so shit compared to the rest?

I mean I didn’t find it dark myself. But I suppose it was no different to

watching Transformers the Movie as a kid and seeing Optimus Prime peg it

It's stupid is what it is. It different tell you what it's hiding a spoiler for, so it serves no purpose.

That spoiler, in the context of Pokemon will likely spoil that film. Pretty sure everyone is aware of what I’ve put in spoiler tags but it’s the context I’m trying to protect

Nothing of the sort happens. (incredibly mild Pikachu spoilers) 

Pikachu gets a bit hurt, then healed within five minutes. He doesn't look in peril to the extent of Prime, who turns grey and carks it while the Autobots look on weeping.

Chest's point is you should hint what the spoiler is so the reader can decide for themselves (see above).

John Wick 3

Fuck this was fun. Just a literal blast from start to finish. God knows what the body count was, must have been 100-200 cos a shitload of people got shot, stabbed and all sorts. The opening 20 minutes or so were bloody wild.

I'm going to an early showing tomorrow, I can't wait. No animals were harmed, right?

Sort of.

Booksmart

Fantastic

The Long Shot

OK

The Hustle

Not bad, but then again I do love Rebel Wilson.

Only Booksmart is really worth going to see.
