Pokémon Detective Pikachu

Lydia Wede

First of all, Ryan Reynolds. Enough said. There has never been a movie where Ryan Reynolds was anything but the best fit for his role, and Pokémon Detective Pikachu was no exception. His sarcastic wit and humor brought the fuzzball which was Pikachu to life in the most perfect way. Regarding the pokémon themselves, the animators behind this movie did an amazing job creating life-like creatures, without turning this family-film into a horror-flick. While this movie was clearly intended for fans of the Pokémon franchise, the creators did an exquisite job making the movie approachable for all viewers, with enough inside jokes to appease the devotees. Pokémon Detective Pikachu was by far the best movie from this past year.
