Pokemon 3

by Greg Muskewitz

"Fireplace fodder."
3 stars

Discount my rating for "Pokemon 3: The Movie," because after all, I haven't actually seen it, and I don't plan to.

It was my choice in the first place to skip the Saturday morning screening the week before it came out. But my reason for skipping "Pokemon 3" was not because the expired fad's last outing was a squeamish mess, but in fact because now all they are doing is releasing the same exact version of the television show, minus the commercials, but with a little but a little more footage to extend it, and an asinine, time-gobbling "short" at the beginning. The animation is poor, the plot is the same, and their idea of inveigling you to continue putting down the dollars for their movies and merchandise is only that of continually adding more and more "new" characters. There isn't even the effort to give it a proper title. Word has it that it hardly worked with the card series, and box office grosses said it didn't work with the sequel. "Pokemon" is not only already out of the door, but well past being superannuated.

No Verdict.
