There were four people in the cinema when I went to see Pika, on Sunday, around 16:50.

Opps. Enjoyed it. Wasn't bad but nothing great. Pikachu is, of course, super cute.

Our theater on Saturday was pretty full and the kids seemed to enjoy it and there were some real laughs from the adults at some of the lines. I thought it wasn't bad, but looked like it was going to be a lot more fun in the trailers than it was in the movie.

Still, we certainly enjoyed it.

I had a similar experience when I went; the theater wasn't packed, but everyone (myself included) seemed to enjoy it well enough. I didn't love the movie, but I certainly didn't hate it. The best way I can describe it is that it was just kinda weird, but I do feel like it did a pretty good job of bringing the setting to life in a live-action movie. I was a little disappointed with the ending, but I feel like this movie's ultimate goal was to set the stage for more Pokemon movies and not a series of Detective Pikachu movies. The movie wasn't as fun or as funny as I thought it would be going into it, but it brought enough to the table to be entertaining.

Ryan Reynolds' Pikachu was definitely the best part of the movie, mainly because his overall delivery was pretty reminiscent of his Deadpool (in a good way). In a way, the movie accidentally confirmed the notion that Reynolds won't have any trouble portraying Deadpool in an MCU movie (assuming, of course, he ever gets the chance).

Ultimately, I'm glad I caught it on a theater screen...but I wouldn't have been overly disappointed if I had waited until it came out on disc, in hindsight.

No, I'm serious. I may be a realistic conservative by day but give me a good movie on the big screen and my suspension of disbelief goes into full effect and I fall for every directorial trick and intention there is.

I'm glad you enjoyed it, ED. I haven't heard anyone who has seen it who disliked it, honestly. I'm just not interested myself.
