Pokémon: Detective Pikachu – Film Review

Given how nerdy I can be, you might be quite shocked to learn that I did not grow up a Pokémon fan – I didn’t trade cards, I didn’t play the video games or Pokémon Go and I haven’t watched any of the shows and films. Detective Pikachu is my first real Pokémon experience and I’m here to tell you that newbies can enjoy it too.

Deadpool 2: Film Review

Big shocker: I wasn’t the biggest fan of the original Deadpool. I liked it just fine, but people started freaking out and saying how awesome it was and I just didn’t get it.

The Golden Globe nominations came out today and you can read the full list here. The reason the Golden Globes annoy me is because they divide all the acting categories between drama and musical/comedy and frankly, there hasn’t been enough awards-worthy roles in the latter so it’s been filled with some questionable entries.

I had been excited for Deadpool for ages, I seriously enjoyed the trailers and kick-ass marketing campaign and I was truly looking forward to a hilarious anti-hero movie. But it was too much of what I expected it would be – too silly, too crude, too lame – and that made me like it less.
