The PC-ness is so painful. It's definitely a movie made in 2019.

The heroes are a black kid and a white girl? tick.
The seemingly good white man at the start of the movie actually turns out to be super evil? tick
The seemingly evil white woman agent type is actually just a shape shifting evil pokemon controlled by the evil white man? tick.
Pikachu's dad is a good white man at the end but he looks like a young Guardian writer and he married a black woman so he's safe? tick
Pikachu asks the audience how they can't believe in climate change now during an EARTHQUAKE. tick
Pikachu suggests they go press the female reporter for more info but then quickly makes clear to the audience it's actually a metaphor. He then calls her a dame and is shamed by the kid and told women don't like that. tick.

Jesus Christ, I was really not liking the brainwashing of the kids (and some of the adults) in the audience and being talked down to constantly but stayed to see how many more left wing/social justice/identity politics messages they could cram into a movie about a fucking yellow piece of shit.

The effects were pretty good and the giant baby miming pokemon (fuck, is that a real pokemon?) is about the creepiest thing I've seen in a while. I had to look away.

By the way Disney has officially run out of ideas. The previews were for Toy Story 4, The Jungle Book, The Lion King and Aladdin.

I remember seeing a trailer a few years back where someone is offered shelter from an approaching storm and later wakes in some kind of metaphysical dream land… I haven't seen anything about it since. Does anyone know what it might have been?

Take Shelter?

Or maybe you had a metaphysical dream.

No it was more akin to the neverending story than field of dreams. I will give Take Shelter a go for now though. Thanks Andy Eye-wink

I enjoyed this, amazing what was done on such a little budget, I thought the conversations between and Michael Shannon and Jessica Chastain were a bit odd but still thought it was interesting.

Toy Story 4

Loved it and could easily have cried in a few parts. Will need a few more watches when it comes out on Sky to see where it ranks against the other 3 (2 being very hard to top).

^ went in expecting little and loved it. The sophistication of the animation now is insane
