‘Pokemon: Detective Pikachu’ Review – Second Opinion

Stars: Ryan Reynolds, Justice Smith, Kathryn Newton, Bill Nighy, Ken Watanabe, Chris Geere, Suki Waterhouse, Josette Simon, Alejandro De Mesa, Rita Ora, Karan Soni | Written by Dan Hernandez, Benji Samit, Rob Letterman, Derek Connolly | Directed by Rob Letterman

Pokémon: Detective Pikachu is directed by Rob Letterman and stars Justice Smith as Tim Goodman with the addition of the voice of Ryan Reynolds as the titular Pokémon character Pikachu, who collide together after Tim is brought back into Ryme City after his Police Office father has been killed in a suspicious car accident, resulting in a partnership to get to the bottom of this mystery case. Letterman’s film is sadly eye gouging traumatic for an hour and forty minutes that feels more like torture than family entertainment. The resulting film has to be the most generic property going at the moment. The voice of Reynolds does very little and the film has no heart,

Always Be My Maybe Trailer: Keanu Reeves Slides Between Ali Wong & Randall Park

Netflix has released the first trailer for their new rom-com, Always Be My Maybe. The streaming service has had quite a bit of luck with some of their romantic comedy offerings, such as To All the Boys I've Loved Before and Set It Up. This one has a bit of a different spin, as it seems to be taking a cue from the success of Crazy Rich Asians by giving us a predominantly Asian cast, headlined by Ali Wong and Randall Park. Based on this first trailer, it looks like this is going to be a winning combination.

The trailer sets up something of a classic premise. A woman has her dream life, at least on the surface. A great career, handsome fiance and a glamorous lifestyle. However, things get shaken up when she has to head back to her old hometown and she runs into an old fling who

‘Always Be My Maybe’ Trailer: Ali Wong and Randall Park in the Next Big Netflix Rom Com

If “Crazy Rich Asians” proved movies with Asian American leads could rock the box office, “Always Be My Maybe” is about to do the same thing for Netflix movies. The new romantic comedy stars Ali Wong and Randall Park as two estranged childhood friends who reunite in adulthood, rekindling an old flame that never quite got to burn bright. With these two beloved comedy stars at the helm, “Fresh Off the Boat” creator Nahnatchka Khan in the director’s chair, a hilarious Keanu Reeves cameo, and a title riffing on the greatest Mariah Carey song of all time — “Always Be My Maybe” will soon be part of you indefinitely.

The newly released trailer presents Sasha (Wong) as “the Asian Oprah,” a Los Angeles mogul in a loveless engagement to a fellow entrepreneur (Daniel Dae Kim). Returning to her hometown of San Francisco to open a new restaurant, she is surprised

Ali Wong and Randall Park Are Adorable Together in Rom-Com ‘Always Be My Maybe’ Trailer (Video)

Netflix might have their own “Crazy Rich Asians” on their hands. In the romantic comedy “Always Be My Maybe,” Ali Wong and Randall Park play an adorable couple who are childhood friends and former lovers.

Fifteen years removed from their fling and falling out, Sasha (Wong) is now a successful celebrity chef and Marcus (Park) is still living at home and working for his dad. And in the first trailer for the film, it all looks and sounds very cute, but doesn’t skimp on the foul-mouthed wordplay and double entendres that Wong has come to be known for in her stand-up comedy.

“It might be even smaller and grosser than I remember,” Wong says as she looks at the backseat of Park’s old Corolla where they once hooked up. “You better still be talking about my backseat,” Park responds.

Daniel Radcliffe-Starring ‘Miracle Workers’ Gets Anthology-Style Season 2

Daniel Radcliffe-Starring ‘Miracle Workers’ Gets Anthology-Style Season 2
Prepare for the understatement of the year: Daniel Radcliffe is interested in the exciting work happening on American television, but not very interested in playing one character over an extended period of time — “having sort of done that once already.”

The one-time “Harry Potter” star said that to IndieWire in 2018, just as he was beginning work on “Miracle Workers,” the TBS comedy that was renewed Wednesday for a second season. Created by “Man Seeking Women” creator Simon Rich, the first season featured Radcliffe as an awkward angel trying to keep God (Steve Buscemi) from blowing up the Earth.

That plot was wrapped up pretty cleanly by the Season 1 finale; part of the official renewal announcement from TBS included the news that Season 2 would be an entirely different story. The official description states that it “will be a medieval story about friendship, family and trying not to be murdered, centered on

Miracle Workers Season 2 Confirmed

Alec Bojalad May 15, 2019

TBS has ordered Miracle Workers Season 2 with the original cast returning in new roles in a new medieval setting.

Where does Miracle Workers go after presenting heaven as the bureaucratic mess that it probably is? Why, to the past, of course!

TBS has ordered Miracle Workers Season 2 and has announced that the entire cast will be returning as new characters and adopting a new setting. Miracle Workers had always been described as an anthology series but it was unclear exactly what that meant until now. Per a TBS release, Miracle Workers Season 2 "will be a medieval story about friendship, family and trying not to be murdered." Next season will follow a group of villagers in the dark ages trying to keep their spirits up in the age of "fake news."

Steve Buscemi, Daniel Radcliffe, Geraldine Viswanathan, and Karan Soni will all return in new roles.

‘Miracle Workers’ Renewed For Season 2; Daniel Radcliffe & Steve Buscemi Get Medieval On TBS

TBS has ordered a second season of Miracle Workers, its anthology comedy that will move stars Daniel Radcliffe and Steve Buscemi from heaven to the depths of medieval times.

Geraldine Viswanathan and Karan Soni also star in the Broadway Video series created by Simon Rich. Its inaugural season saw Radcliffe playing a low-level angel responsible for handling all of humanity’s prayers. His boss, God (Buscemi), had His fill of Earth and planned simply to blow it up and move on. The band of angels were out to prevent that.

The core four cast members return for Season 2 of Miracle Workers, which will be a medieval story about friendship, family and trying not to be murdered. It revolves around a group of villagers in the dark ages trying to stay positive in an age of inequality and fake news.

TBS Orders Series From ‘Full Frontal’ Correspondant Amy Hoggart, Greenlights Nasim Pedrad Comedy

  • Variety
Timed to its participation in the WarnerMedia upfront festivities, TBS has ordered two new shows to series and announced the renewal of two comedies.

Take a look at what shows will be joining and returning to the network’s 2019-2020 schedule.

Series Orders

TBS has decided to give “Full Frontal” correspondant Amy Hoggart her own show.

The untitled project will be a half-hour, non-political series which will explore everyday problems through Hoggart’s unique humor, blending scripted and unscripted segments.

Hoggart will pen the series, while continuing her correspondent duties on Samantha Bee’s show.

“I’m so relieved to be finally getting my money’s worth after an expensive and so far useless psychology course,” said Hoggart. “I’ll be exploring the topics we all have a hard time coping with, learn why we do the insane things we do, and unnecessarily demean myself for laughs. I’m beyond

Movie Review – Pokémon: Detective Pikachu (2019)

Pokémon: Detective Pikachu, 2019.

Directed by Rob Letterman.

Starring Ryan Reynolds, Justice Smith, Kathryn Newton, Bill Nighy, Ken Watanabe, Chris Geere, Suki Waterhouse, Josette Simon, Rita Ora, Karan Soni, Diplo, Omar Chaparro, and Rob Delaney.

Synopsis:

In a world where people collect Pokémon to do battle, a boy comes across an intelligent talking Pikachu who seeks to be a detective.

The Pokémon franchise has been around for over 20 years now, but through the many video games and animes it has never had a live-action film until now. Pokémon: Detective Pikachu marks the franchise’s first foray into live-action territory and does so rather well. Though the story is a tad predictable in places, it remains engaging thanks to Ryan Reynolds’ performance as Pikachu as well as how the film keeps itself open to casual Pokémon fans, or even anyone with a basic knowledge about the games, just as much as die-hard fans.

Stars: Ryan Reynolds, Justice Smith, Kathryn Newton, Bill Nighy, Ken Watanabe, Chris Geere, Suki Waterhouse, Josette Simon, Alejandro De Mesa, Rita Ora, Karan Soni | Written by Dan Hernandez, Benji Samit, Rob Letterman, Derek Connolly | Directed by Rob Letterman

I’ve been a Pokemon fan since the original Red and Blue games came out. I still play the games today two decades later. I grew up with the animated series and watched it religiously as a kid. Pokemon has been incredibly successful as a franchise but the one thing that alluded it was a successful movie. For those about to bring up the animated movies for the television series, they are enjoyable but there’s no denying that they are for fans only. However, Detective Pikachu does something which is really refreshing in that it doesn’t alienate adults who don’t have that attachment to Pokemon and is without a doubt,

Second Opinion – Pokémon: Detective Pikachu (2019)

Pokémon: Detective Pikachu, 2019.

Directed by Rob Letterman.

Starring Ryan Reynolds, Justice Smith, Kathryn Newton, Bill Nighy, Ken Watanabe, Chris Geere, Suki Waterhouse, Josette Simon, Rita Ora, Karan Soni, Diplo, Omar Chaparro, and Rob Delaney.

Synopsis:

In a world where people collect Pokémon to do battle, a boy comes across an intelligent talking Pikachu who seeks to be a detective.

Pretty much every time a video game adaptation releases, most viewers find themselves questioning if the filmmakers involved have ever had any experience playing it, so it’s a surprise that Pokémon: Detective Pikachu is more than just concerned with the bond between trainer and adorable mythological creature, it actually lifts elements and terminology directly from the games in ways that gel well within the structure of a movie. Simultaneously, a paying casual audience should not need massive amounts of knowledge to understand any of the above, so it’s also

‘Detective Pikachu’ Review: Pokémon World Comes to Vivid Life in Disappointing Adaptation

‘Detective Pikachu’ Review: Pokémon World Comes to Vivid Life in Disappointing Adaptation
The central premise of the Pokémon franchise — which ranges from card games to video games, manga to music, and the popular Pokémon Go smart phone game — is relatively simple: Imagine a world in which there are hundreds of species of mostly cute “pocket monsters,” all of whom humans have trained to battle each other in scary, but not particularly brutal matches. But in the brand’s first live-action feature, that premise is the first thing to go. In “Pokémon: Detective Pikachu,” director Rob Letterman imagines a world in which people and Pokémon live together in harmony, a place without ‘mon-on-‘mon cage matches, a cute utopia that harbors plenty of nasty secrets.

It’s not the worst idea, and the CGI that enliven this wild world of people and Pokémon is nothing short of awe-inspiring. But no amount of technical polish can detract from a thin narrative that confuses far more than it amuses.
