Below is the synopsis of "Detective Pikachu," per Rotten Tomatoes

The story begins when 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, Detective Pikachu: a hilariously wise-cracking, adorable super-sleuth who is a puzzlement even to himself. Finding that they are uniquely equipped to communicate with one another, Tim and Pikachu join forces on a thrilling adventure to unravel the tangled mystery. Chasing clues together through the neon-lit streets of Ryme City - a sprawling, modern metropolis where humans and Pokémon live side by side in a hyper-realistic live-action world - they encounter a diverse cast of Pokémon characters and uncover a shocking plot that could destroy this peaceful co-existence and threaten the whole Pokémon universe.

"Detective Pikachu" holds a fresh rating of 69 percent and an audience score of 79 percent on Rotten Tomatoes (at the time of publication). The hit video game movie made over $429 million globally at the box office. So, the video game movie adaptation being helmed by Ryan Reynolds in the title role clearly resonated.

Below is the synopsis of "Sonic the Hedgehog," per Rotten Tomatoes

SONIC THE HEDGEHOG is a live-action adventure comedy based on the global blockbuster video game franchise from Sega that centers on the infamously brash bright blue hedgehog. The film follows the (mis)adventures of Sonic as he navigates the complexities of life on Earth with his newfound -- human -- best friend Tom Wachowski (James Marsden). Sonic and Tom join forces to try and stop the villainous Dr. Robotnik (Jim Carrey) from capturing Sonic and using his immense powers for world domination. The film also stars Tika Sumpter and Ben Schwartz as the voice of Sonic.

"Sonic the Hedgehog" holds a fresh rating of 64 percent and an audience score of 94 percent on Rotten Tomatoes (at the time of publication). The original design of Sonic got so much backlash that the filmmakers responded with a redesign and an improvement in visual effects. Pushing the film's release date and visual improvements led to a record breaking box office hit. And Sonic is now not only a video game legend, but a silver screen fan favorite.
