John Wick 3
Uhm.... it’s a bit boring :cry:
Fights last too long for what’s happening, added sound effects feel added and a lot of it isnt really selling the hits. The absolute highlight is Halle Berry, she’s brilliant in it but by the end I was glad it was finally over. It’s not unwatchable but it’s worse than 1 and 2. Needs 30mins cut.
I used to be eVoL but I got better.
I like everything now.

Detective Pikachu

Given how commercialised the Pokemon franchise is, it's a bit amazing that this feels like it was made by people who absolutely love the source material rather than just attempting to squeeze every penny out of the property. There's very little hand-holding in this; Pokemon exist, they are an essential part of human existence, and that comes across immediately without much in the way of tedious exposition. It's a kids film that doesn't feel like it's talking down to its audience. Sure, it's fairly simplistic narratively, and you'll probably guess the ending long before it happens, but there's so much love poured into the rendering and the animation and the world building. It's much better than it has any right to be.

Also, it is officially a tongue, not a scarf.
