Pokémon Detective Pikachu ★★★½

Really good world building without smacking you over the head with exposition for the entire movie. It builds on top of Pokemon's success and fame without completely hanging out to dry people who aren't fanatics. The story wasn't the strongest, but it's good enough to not drag the entire movie down with it. The bottom line is: Pikachu was adorable, and that's worth at least 3 stars alone.
