The Weekly Stuff #284 – Game of Thrones is bad, Sonic is terrifying, and Pokemon: The First Movie is pretty good
It’s time for another episode of The Weekly Stuff Podcast with Jonathan Lack & Sean Chapman, a weekly audio show that explores the worlds of film, television, and video games. You can subscribe for free in iTunes by following this link.
Next week, Detective Pikachu arrives in theatres, sure to become the biggest video game movie of all time. Twenty years ago, Pokemon: The First Movie took the United States by storm in a very different way, arriving at the height of the original Pokemon boom and bringing anime mainstream in the West in a way it had never been before. On this week’s show, we revisit that film – in both its English adaptation and original Japanese form – looking back on Pokemon’s theatrical debut before Hollywood takes the reins next week. We also talk about the abject horror of the Sonic the Hedgehog movie trailer, pay tribute to the great Peter Mayhew, and rant about last week’s very bad episode of Game of Thrones.
