With POKEMON: DETECTIVE PIKACHU, Nintendo gets back into the movie game with their first live-action adaptation of the popular franchise. When Tim Goodman gets the news that his absentee father has passed away, he returns to his home to search for answers. However, after Tim discovers his father’s partner, a wise-cracking Pikachu, he quickly discovers that there may be more to the story than he first believed. As the two venture out to solve the puzzle of his father’s disappearance, Tim and Pikachu learn to work together while, at the same time, tackling their own inner battles as well. This week on the show, Steve welcomes a couple of Pokemon masters in Rob Jackson and Anthony Simone to get to the bottom of the mystery behind why video game movies often fail and the film's understanding of identity and mental health issues.

This week, That Shelf writer Victor Stiff joins us to bring the apocalypse with HELLBOY, the much maligned reboot by Neil Marshall. Starring Stranger Things’ David Harbour and Milla Jovovich, HELLBOY finds himself torn the world of monsters and humanity as he attempts to prevent the ancient Blood Queen from unleashing… well… hell on earth. Rated a distasterous 11% on Rotten Tomatoes, the film has a tonne of detractors but is it really a sign of the End of Days? Or is there something redeemable in the half-demon? In a fun conversation, Victor and I attempt to discern what makes Hellboy a hero and what he’s looking for in the film.
