Pokémon Detective Pikachu ★★★½

This was much more fun than I had thought and didn't have too much Pokemon pandering. Each Pokemon has their time to shine in the film, and there aren't many parts where it feels like the filmmakers are stuffing in references for the sake of it. In other words, this didn't turn out to be a Pokemon Ready Player One. Although the plot is improvable, the film is surprisingly funny and the cute Pokemon designs make this a flawed but entertaining movie.
