Detective Pikachu: A Spoilerish Review

Long time no see readers. This may be a month late but, welcome to my second “Spoilerish” review where I review, analyze and spoil a movie that I happened to see and wanted to review. Today’s video is about Pokémon’s first ever live action film, Detective Pikachu. 

Detective Pikachu like any video game film adaptation has a lot of problems, but that doesn’t disqualify it from being a good film. While these flaws are most apparent in the first third of the film, the movie improves as the story goes on. The second third, after Ryan Reynold’s Pikachu has been introduced, the film certainly picks up, becomes faster in pace and is a lot more enjoyable. The third act on the other hand feels pretty rushed and really bizarre, and to me I can’t tell if that’s a good thing or a bad thing. Opinions may vary. I liked it.

Justice Smith’s interpretation of the game character, Tim Goodman, is a huge improvement over the video game’s version of the character. In fact despite the movie’s short comings it still has a better story and mystery than the game it’s based on. While the game ends on a cliff hanger (it’ll soon get a sequel on the Nintendo Switch), the movie completes the story of Tim and Pikachu defeating the villain and reunites Tim with his father.

I give the film a GOOD rating! Certainly it is the best video game film that has ever been produced in like… well ever! For more details and a deeper analysis on the Detective Pikachu movie and game check out my video review down below. It would be very appreciated and thanks for reading!

What were your opinions of the Detective Pikachu movie? would you like to see a sequel? Tell me in the comments below.

Avengers Endgame. A Spoilerish Review

The MCU is an admirable set of films and it all culminates with this most recent film, Avengers Endgame. I saw the movie day one and finally got around to doing a review for the film.

Endgame is no doubt a cinematic event, one of the biggest of our lifetime. Even if you haven’t seen a single MCU film, you’ll still able to have fun with it, not optimally but its a blast the whole way through anyway. In this day and age, it’s almost impossible to not know what the MCU. The series is over 10 years old, it all ends with this.

In the review video down below I start with a general review with no spoilers and then lead into an analytical and in-depth look at the scenarios in the film. Don’t worry if you haven’t seen the film yet, you’ll be safe.

In short, this film isn’t perfect but it may as well be and is a perfect send-off and ending to the film industries greatest achievement. The video review is down below the break.

Sonic’s First Movie Trailer Hypes up the Internet for All the Wrong Reasons

We’ve known about the Sonic Movie for years now. We’ve known about Sonic’s… intriguing design for a few months. Now we finally get to see what the final product looks like. Check out the trailer and my video impressions below the break. Before we do let’s do some analysis. It seems so many people have responded to the trailer with great negativity and at the time of writing this article the trailer is Trending #1 on Youtube and has received over 13 million views in one day.

Everyone has been making reaction videos for this trailer and this my readers is why this trailer is super effective. I personally wanted to see the Sonic film long before we got this trailer but now I want to see it more than ever! This trailer is getting a ton of attention and hyping up internet users for all the wrong reasons.

The low quality of the trailer, its now ever apparent infamy and Sonic’s fame gives me, as well as other viewers mixed vibes. The movie looks awful but no one can shut up about it. People keep saying they want to see it just out of spite and I’m well into that category. What do you all think? Will you go see this film? How do you think it will do critically and financially? Let me know down below!

The Borderlands 3 Controversy Rant

There’s been a lot of controversy surrounding the somewhat recently announced Borderlands 3. It started out with the announcement of B3 being released on PC not through Steam but the Epic Games Store. A lot of fans and gamers are so distraught over this matter that some say they will resort to pirating the game upon its release while others are currently review-bombing the previous games on Steam. It seems there’s a lot of drama coming from all sides because of this choice of marketing so decided to detail all these happenings in my video below.

This article and video are very different from what I usually write and make so apologies if I get some information wrong or my thoughts seem unclear. I hope you enjoy it anyways. Check it out down below.

New Pokémon Game: Sword and Shield

Greetings to all my readers, long time no see!

A couple of days ago we got a trailer for the latest generation of Pokémon games. A lovely duo of games exclusive for the Nintendo Switch: Sword and Shield. With each new Pokemon game comes a new trio of Staters, a new region, and a semi-new art style. Wanna see what the game has to offer? Check out the video down below to see what we know about Pokémon: Sword and Shield and get my opinions. Also, the pokemon you see me holding in the thumbnail is the new fire starter Scorbunny. I’m most likely gonna choose him HAH. Let me know down in the comments what you think of these new announcements.

On top of that, I roast the starter designs. Gotta love/hate them.

Hello to all who still follow this website! I have returned to make a new video and article. Sorry for taking so long but I felt this topic needed to be discussed. Today I’ll be writing about the latest news involving the next installment in the Metroid franchise: Metroid Prime 4. 

Metroid Prime 4 was announced at E3 2017 and was meant to be released either this year or in 2020. But recently it has been announced that the game had halted in production and would be restarted with the team that created the Prime series, Retro Studios.

The Day 1 Rant and Review on the Nintendo Switch Online Service

This is a day that a lot of Switch owners have been dreading. Now we have to pay for something that was originally free and despite a good price, it still feels like a total rip off. It doesn’t help that Nintendo treated it’s viewers and customers like children giving definitions and explanations to simple concepts that we are already knowledgeable about. Don’t get what I’m talking about? Please check out the video below as I analyze Nintendo’s marketing strategies for the online service, where they went wrong and why A LOT of people are upset about this whole thing.

I first analyze the trailer for the Online Service that was shown during last week’s Nintendo Direct. After that I present some updated facts about the service such as the cloud saves and NES games and then give my own personal opinion on this service’s concept.

Mega Man 5 Marks the Restart of the Mega Man Marathon

For those who follow my Youtube channel, you may know that I am currently doing a marathon of classic Mega Man let’s plays. 4 was the most recent episode that I had uploaded over a month ago and finally, I’m getting back into it with my favorite Mega Man game, Mega Man 5.

Also to note, after Mega Man 6, I’m going to cut up the let’s plays into multiple parts. As you can see from Mega Man 1 up till now the parts last for as long as the game lasts which means each video is over an hour long. Starting with Mega Man 7 I’m going to shorten the parts to about half an hour or so, perhaps even less.

With all that said, please enjoy.
