  1. Oddly enough Hasbro have been releasing 'Best of' vids for each character when the miniseries just started to premiere not too long ago and they abruptly cut at the end. Also, talking dolphins are now a thing as well. Pulling something like this just make me think of one of two things. Either they are desperate for viewership or that they aren't confident in this spinoff so their just throw all their promos out there to get it over with (and to sell toys obviously).
  2. So episodes 3 and 4 of Pony Life have been released. [linked removed] [linked removed] So yeah, my opinions haven't changed much from the previous episodes. Still feel like Diet TTG, frenetic cheap and sloppy art style and animation, and littered with a lot of lol-randumb and meta-humor and jokes and writing that falls flat. It feels like a show written by people who haven't even watched a single episode of the main series. Also, as jarring as some modern day digital tech is in the show, the fact that there is a talking cat (Bubbles) feels rather weird and that Spike not being voiced by Cathy Weseluck but by Rarity's VA Tabitha St. Germain which just felt off too.
  3. So Lauren Faust gives her reaction to a sampling of a Pony Life script and confirms that there is facetime/Zoom in Equestria now. Thinking about it and as much I don't support it, it does make Equestria Girls feel very moot and pointless doesn't it? I mean, other than the school gimmick (which FiM copied with S8), the EQG world had the modern tech as an advantage over the FiM world. Despite having it for a long time, now that's gone because of Pony Life, what makes EQG unique anymore other than teen humans?
  4. So character promos of the Mane 6 (sans AJ of course) had been released today. https://www.equestriadaily.com/2020/06/pony-life-character-promos-appear-on.html Yeah, still no change from my initial thoughts on the trailer, still giving off TTG vibes. Though looks like Equestria has more modern tech with TV, internet, iPhones, etc., having it feel a bit of a disconnect from the original series. But I'm more worried that this will have an overabundance of meme/internet cultural references and jokes. And Fluttershy's 'Selfie' moment isn't helping matters.
  5. So we get an official trailer for Pony Life. And yeah for me, it really feels like TTG with a coat of pony paint, kinda off putting in a way.
  6. So some interesting news of late as Tara Strong, Twilight's VA, said during a stream that Twilight Sparkle isn't going to appear in G5. Though (if going by the leaks from while back) there could be a chance that Twilight Sparkle is returning but with a different VA like how Pinkie is voiced by a different VA in the Hello Pinkie Pie 3D shorts. But she did say that there could be more EQG material in the works and 'other projects' might include Pony Life as well. Maybe more that Hasbro might try to squeeze out from G4 as possible before G5 (or maybe even after if G5 is a bust and unsuccessful). https://www.equestriadaily.com/2020/04/tara-strong-notes-that-twilight-sparkle.html
  7. Funny if it's revealed that they have Jaleel voicing a role and it's Classic Sonic. Hey, it's like in the games to have two Sonics at the same time, at least in two of them (Generations and Forces)! I'm sure that won't confuse general audience or piss off the fans in the slightest ! (Unfortunately 'Classic Sonic' in this case is actually the fugly original model/design from the first trailer.)
  8. Double Toasted Review: After seeing this and some of the reactions here, even though haven't watched it, I feel that I'm in the camp that's less than positive because of how the writing and even action is weak and underwhelming, what you see from the trailers is what you get overall. Again, much of what I've seen from the trailers, adverts, and scenes really didn't click for me at all, not even much of the Sonic and Eggman stuff. Sonic feels like Deadpool's bargain bin Mini-Me who talks too much and still see Jim Carey as Ace Ventura in Robotnik cosplay. Tom and other human characters being total blah and uninteresting. The writing feels like it was regurgitated from the Hollywood family film formula machine that hits every check mark with (dated) pop culture references, occasional fart jokes, etc. (I honestly do hope this won't affect Game Sonic, I know the writing in the games aren't that great but still...) I still believe we've been robbed of a better experience if it was fully animated where Sonic blends in and fits and interacts the environment better along with being less restricted in the real world. And more fantastical looking set pieces that he can interact with and show off his speed where better action scenes can take place. I just really hate things that are wasted potential. Probably the silver lining here with the movie's success is that Sega might want to do more movies but not just milking this for more sequels. I'm thinking that we might get a separate fully animated feature film. Maybe not theatrical but more akin to the DCAU with direct to DVD/Blu-Ray or even Netflix/Streaming service animated movies that CGI or preferably 2D that might be experimental in terms of animation styles and genres and interesting to see how Sonic and friends fit into them (probably one of the only ways to have fan favorites appear). Steampunk Sonic, Into the Sonic Verse or franchise crossovers anyone? Hey, if Gotham By Gaslight and Batman vs TMNT can work, why not? But of course, Sega or whatever hired studio that attempts it need to have good writers and can't emphasis that enough (as well as less executive meddling and creative restraints/restrictions). It's the only thing that I'm hopeful about. But alas, this is Sega we're talking about so...
  9. After watching the trailer, it didn’t affect me that much but still rather peeved. I would’ve probably been more interested if the setting was based on Sonic’s world and exploring other ‘Zones’ than on our world/earth for a forced buddy cop cliche and generic fish-out-of-water story. It’ll be a miracle that we might get no more 5-10 minutes of scenes on Sonic’s world throughout, and probably popping up near end. And I can’t emphasize enough about how this would have benefited if it were fully animated while the story sets in Sonic’s world. Still would be more interesting than what we’re getting.
  10. Some more bad news for the movie, not just low negative reviews and dismal box office numbers. This is probably the first time we have a Day One Patch not for a video game but for a movie as they're trying to fix the special effects/graphics and have a digitally enhanced version for the theaters after its released. It's like if the Sonic Movie still have that horrid design upon release and then Paramount releases the movie with the redesign after the box office weekend, ripping you off to buy another ticket just to see a slightly better version. As the vid says, it gives a worrying precedent if future movies to go along route that the VG industry took. Probably even releasing a version A and B of the same movie at the same time but with altered scenes or even a different ending. It's like buying a movie only to realize that the Bonus DVD/Blu-Ray features are not on it and you have buy a separate disc at the same price. What's next? Movie equivalent of DLC and loot boxes? This could be Hollywood's final nail in the coffin if it goes down this route.
  11. With this lizard guy from Sonic’s world got me thinking about some things. We know that Sonic got a new remodeled look but what about the other anthros from his world? Would they still look like Sonic’s original hideous uncanny form? It’ll probably make Sonic look out of place even in his own world. Like placing him in Jim Henson’s Dark Crystal. Also if this lizard warrior thing is true and that we have another villain, I predict one of two things would happen.
  12. Looks like the TTG virus is spreading and ponies are it’s new victim. https://ew.com/tv/2019/11/13/my-little-pony-pony-life-first-look-lizzo/ Yeah apparently Hasbro has some new FiM content to tide us over until G5 with a new animated series based on an upcoming toy line which look awfully awkward/bad. Thanks Hasbro, I hate it already.
  13. Along the usual Hollywood focus group ploys, another thing that I forgot to address is Tom and the whole “friendship” that’s gonna feel phoned in. Because what is his purpose here other than being a reactant to Sonic’s antics? Nothing really since there doesn’t seem to be any visible traits that make him an interesting or standout character so far. It’s like they are making James Marsden into the Eddie Valiant to Sonic’s Roger Rabbit. But it clearly doesn’t feel like its needed esp with Tom feeling like a blank slate. Not to mention Eddie has clear character that one can relate to. And there doesn’t seem to be any chemistry between the two even by the trailer. Heck it feels that Sonic was trying to hold up the scenes by himself whenever they’re on screen. Also none of this was in the games as well since one can try to relate to Sonic alone because at the very least he has character and even relatable on his own. And what is wrong with including obvious fan favorites like Tails and his other friends who clearly have chemistry and relationships with? Not enough A or B list celebrity star power to bring more seats in the theater?
  14. Congrats movie. You went from horribly awful to woefully meh with only an improved Sonic design. The dialogue is still dreadful with weak writing and forced jokes. Jim Carrey is just hamming up as usual, feeling more like a discount Ace Ventura than Eggman. Feels like they blend Sonic, Hop and Alvin And the Chipmunks: the Road Chip in a blender. Again why the f&@k wasn’t this fully animated?
