By James Verniere | [email protected] | May 10, 2019 at 1:21 am MOVIE REVIEW “Pokemon Detective Pikachu” Rated PG. At AMC Loews Boston Common, Regal Fenway Stadium and suburban theaters. Grade: C+ Kiddie films don’t come much more phantasmagorical than “Pokemon Detective Pikachu.” I felt like I needed someone who had been a kid in the 1990s, or a more recent “Pokemon Go” fanatic, to explain to me what I was looking at. Pokemon, according to Wikipedia, is the world’s highest-grossing media franchise. OK. The film from Warner Bros., Legendary and Toho Films opens with scenes in which human scientists perform experiments upon a Mewtwo, one of the most powerful Pokemon creatures, at a high-tech facility. With a big bang, the Mewtwo, which looks part hairless feline, part steroid-pumped kangaroo, escapes and flies after a fleeing Detective Harry (d’oh) Goodman and his partner Detective Pikachu (voice of Ryan Reynolds), … [Read more...] about ‘Pokemon Detective Pikachu’ can’t find decent plot
Monsters vs aliens
Extraterrestrial Terror of 'Alien'Since the first slimy Xenomorph burst from the chest of Officer Kane in the 1979 original "Alien" movie, several other versions of the extraterrestrial monster have terrorized space travelers in the nearly 40-year-old sci-fi saga. From chestbursters to facehuggers, here are the creepiest creatures from the "Alien" movies. [The Best Scary Movies That Take Place in Space]Up first: NeomorphsNeomorphThe latest addition to the Xenomorph family makes its debut in "Alien: Covenant" (in theaters May 19). Director Ridley Scott envisioned the Neomorph as a combination of the original Xenomorph and the prehistoric-looking goblin shark found on Earth.Next: The QueenQueenShe's big, she's scary, and she lays evil eggs: Meet the queen of the Xenomorphs.

With 2019 just days away, it’s important to cherish the hope and optimism that comes with every new year. A fresh calendar brings a fresh start — one where anything is possible! And then, of course, after a couple of days of well-intentioned good behavior, it’ll be time to drop the ceremony and resume the rhythms of the previous year and just get on with life. But what’s the best way to forget that we’ve thrown all those noble intentions out the door? Watching streaming content, of course! Netflix is kicking things off with the third season of A Series of Unfortunate Events, the final season of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, and its latest series, a reboot of Carmen Sandiego. But while the focus for the company has been on original content lately, it’s adding some noteworthy library titles to its lineup to start the new year as well. The entire Indiana Jones franchise will be coming to the service, as will Solo: A Star Wars Story.

Do you have plans for New Year's Day? Well, now you do! Netflix is picking up the entire Indiana Jones trilogy* (and the other one, which I'm pretending doesn't exist). So gather some snacks and turn on Raiders of the Lost Ark. It's a good month for Netflix original series. Grace and Frankie will be back with their fifth season, dropping Jan. 18. Or you can catch the second season of Friends From College, even though I don't think anyone was really asking for a second season. (Certainly not the 44 score on Metacritic.) But hey, I'm not here to judge. If you can patiently wait till the end of the month, Netflix is getting Marvel's Ant-Man and the Wasp on Jan. 29. You can check out this helpful streaming guide to get you all caught up before then. And last but not least is The Incredibles 2, dropping Jan. 30, which is a pretty incredible film.
