    I am several decades away from even theoretically being nostalgic about Pokémon, but the trailers promised a buddy comedy, and Detective Pikachu works on that level. 

    There were enough, as it were, outside jokes to keep me happy as I munched my tub of popcorn and huge drink. 

    I was also pleased that, in addition to a villainous white capitalist, there was also a good one. (This may have been a sly reference to the Murdoch family.) Also, the fact that the mixed-race hero has a white father, and he’s not evil, is a little bit transgressive by today’s “woke“ standards. 

    N.B.: I saw the 3D version, and the visuals were entirely satisfactory. I would no more see a 3D movie in 2D, than a color movie in black-and-white.

    As one of the few males in a family of mostly females…that right there is solid gold for a consensus happy trip to the cinema!

    I’m a year ahead of Sonny, so pogs were 7th grade for me 6th him. i wasn’t into them, but they were all the rage. Funny thing is, as far as I recall, summer came and went, 8th grade started, and I never saw or heard about pogs again. Kids weren’t bringing them to school. It was like some kind of mind wipe.

    To my Marine son, POG’s were “people other than grunts.”
