Image
This review was originally published on RevengeOfTheFans.com

Netflix’s newest film, Rim of the World is an adventure filled with emotion and excitement. The intrigue, heart, humor and spectacle of the characters are what makes this story tick. The film, written by Zack Stentz and directed by McG, has a Spielbergian sense of adventure, with a John Hughes coming-of-age feel. It’s a throwback to the 80s, with a modern sensibility.

Pokemon: Detective Pikachu - Review

Image
Video game movies do not have a great track record. So when Pokemon: Detective Pikachu was announced as a live action film, I had hesitations. But the movie provides a fun adventure that does some incredible world building for future installments of the franchise. There will be slight spoilers throughout.
