POKÉMON Detective Pikachu stars Ryan Reynolds as the titular character in the first-ever live-action movie based on the iconic Pokémon franchise. Fans everywhere can now experience Pikachu on the big screen as never before, as a talking detective Pikachu, a Pokémon like no other. The

Finally! While some people have some weird attachment to the Super Mario Bros. live action theatrical atrocity that was made, many people would rather forget that ever existed. I’ll admit that I did see it when I was a kid but I’ve mostly blocked it out of my memory. Well we can prepare to completely forget that movie ever existed as Nintendo is making a real Mario movie.
