    Anyone thinking about seeing Detective Pikachu? It looks pretty self-aware with how ridiculous and goofy it is.

    I still find it funny that the first two live-action video game movies to break the curse on video game adaptations were literally Sonic and Pokemon.

    I wouldn't be surprised if part of the reason they'd break the curse is because they'd actually pay attention to source material and tried to make it work or something. Then again, I never seen either Detective Pikachu or the Sonic movie.

    Was Detective Pikachu based on the Pokemon anime?

    Or was it based more directly on the "core games"?

    It was based more on the games, and Detective Pikachu was a video game spinoff before it was a movie.

    I wouldn't be surprised if we eventually got a live-action adaptation of the anime though

    From America or Japan?

    I hear Japan's live action film and TV industry isn't doing well.

    (And if from America, what if Tommy Wiseau played Ash?)

    Rifftrax just released the Double Dragon movie with riffs if you're in to that. I can say it made it better. Also husband and I sat down and watched the Postal movie. I would say it's very faithful to the spirit of the game. It's vulgar, gross, offends everyone, I thought it was funny.
