Our review of Pokemon Detective Pikachu now in theatres starring Ryan Reynolds, Justice Smith, Kathryn Newton. Ace detective Harry Goodman goes mysteriously missing, prompting his 21-year-old son, Tim, to find out what happened. Aiding in the investigation is Harry’s former Pokémon partner, wise-cracking, adorable super-sleuth Detective Pikachu. Finding that they are uniquely equipped to work together, as Tim is the only human who can talk with Pikachu, they join forces to unravel the tangled mystery.

We also speak with musician Brigit O’Regan to promote her upcoming appearance at MegaCon Orlando! Brigit is known from viral videos. Brigit O’Regan is a violinist/fiddler with 22 years of practice and 12 years of professional, freelance performance under her belt. After being strictly classical for many years, she rebelled at a young age and now is most known for her Top 40 Pop, Rock, Hip-Hop, Fiddle and Bollywood. She is also known as “Violin Girl” by over 3.4 Million people due to the success of her FanExpo and ComicCon videos. Over the past few years, she has discovered and built upon her unique gift of instant improvisation, stemming from a “cross-wiring” of the brain called synesthesia.
