  1. Yeah, that still thumbnail image showing Sonic's teeth and lips makes it less than appealing. Obviously still an improvement over last design but still, live action doesn't suit well with Sonic at all IMO. But man, am I the only one didn't laugh at any jokes here? It feels very cookie cutter Hollywood Alvin and the Chipmunks/Smurfs level of quality with Sonic references sprinkled in. Probably the only funny thing is how James Marsden looks and feels tired and doesn't want to be there, wishing he was playing Cyclops for another X-Men movie.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Well, Tis the Season I guess to present to you this 2009 Sega Christmas Card Ignoring the distracting Xenomorph (and suppressing the memories of the dud that was Colonial Marines), Sonic's mouth looks pretty awkward along with the crease on his forehead.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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?
  8. 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?
  9. A bit over a week late, but here it is. Now putting what I’ve said about the finale. S9 felt…off in a way. A mixed bag of story continuity and slice of life episodes, which resulted in the build up to the finale kinda lacking. Not to mention it felt like during production of S9 when S8 was airing that they gotten news that S9 was going to be the last and they had to rearrange/rewrite at the last minute. Like that S9 was going to be build up for a tenth season. Might as well discus my thoughts on the series overall. Ever since the beginning, I saw the show on a Grade B level than A/+ level since there were other cartoons during the time that I thought had better quality over this during the early 2010s, Adventure Time, Regular Show, Steven Universe, Gravity Falls, and some others. Overtime, that grade decreased, middling in C/D territory, which I’ll get into a bit later. Though I kept watching due out of obligation since I’ve watched it since it debuts back at the beginning of the decade. Kinda like with the Bleach anime with few things here and there that I liked but Bleach didn't annoy me as much (those little princess arcs were crap though). The fandom works were still interesting and entertaining as well, even surpassing the quality of the show. That said, I had plenty of gripes with much of the progression the series, mainly much of the changes and events that I didn’t like or had little to no interest in and had to bear it. And the list for that is long from Twilicorn to the gaudy crystal castle to reformed Discord to ugly changeling redesigns to the school gimmick. Of course, whenever an episode focused on that topic, I begin to feel numb while watching since it didn’t pertain to my interests in the show and rarely did change my mind as time progresses. And their execution had a lot to be desired. Hay, even the school gimmick was the focus for one season only to be pushed to the side in the next. In fact, the best way to describe the series would be wasted potential as there have been a ton of characters and concepts that could have been explored or developed even further such as Diamond Tiara and Silver Spoon post reformation, the ponies of Our Town from S5 (Other than Sugar Belle), Zecora and zebras in general, The Pillars, etc. Again, so many missed opportunities such as adventures with The Pillars with Daring Do and Wonderbolt missions with RD and other members. I can chalk this up for many reasons including executive meddling, the multiple shifting on again/off again writers which contribute to some of the inconsistencies and plot holes, character derailments, and seasonal rot. Not to mention the whole improvisation of the story since Faust left the show who only laid down the foundation. Not saying that the series has been all around awful or terrible, but that it had a lot of promise in the beginning but been fumbling the ball with its writing/story, direction and characters throughout and a lot of missed opportunities were to be had with its shuffling of writers esp. in later seasons. At worst, its just average/meh and at its best, it’s merely okay. Doesn’t help that plenty of fanworks are higher quality as well. So it’s middle of the road for me. We could’ve gotten spinoffs/miniseries that catered to an older audience/fans or that have less restrictions than the main show, but unfortunately Equestria Girls took that spot for the longest time. And unfortunately, stuff like Best Gift Ever were few and far between. Will I still stick around for G5? Well, I’ll probably keep an eye on it, but with some of the leaks and decisions that makes it look like a rehash of FiM by using the same manes/cast makes me cautious. Not to mention AJs character direction feels forced. (Though I’m still waiting for my MLP anime, Hasbro!) /end2cents.
  10. They should have special recolors for gigantamax Pokemon like Butterfree with Mothra skins. And if there is one for Hydreigon it'll be a King Ghidorah skin. The Godzilla crossovers that we didn't know that we needed.
  11. And thus our equine journey ends with The Ending of the End and The Last Lesson today. Starting off with the Ending of the End. It was meh Even though Discord had some moments, the whole Grogar reveal feels like a writing cop out in a sense and that the villain trio got powerful of that from Discord’s poor friendship making ideas. A ton of tropes from other finales/openings are found here as well from Princesses rendered useless, Twilight doubting herself, Rainbow beams, etc. The Pillars were there but Stygian seemed absent and were easily defeated. The action was average. A somewhat lackluster two-parter. As for The Last Lesson, it’s somewhat same with the finale, though not particularly a fan of grand time skips. *Remembers the Digimon Adventure 02 final ep. Probably preferred it if didn’t had that flashback format and just be the coronation with a flash forward. I’ll still say that Unicorn Twilight > Alicorn Twilight esp. with her looking like a recolored Celestia in this. Blech! Not a fan of the song at the end as well. And the plot was standard too.
  12. This week’s episode is The Big Mac Question, the final normal episode before the finale/epilogue of the series, focusing on Big Mac and Sugar Belle’s growing relationship which is something I kinda lack interest in. I found this episode to be alright. I only liked much of Discord’s shenanigans, Big Mac speaking more, and the moral and references to the Perfect Pear. Again, the plot revolving their relationship, I didn’t find much interest in. Though while it was nice to see Double Diamond, Party Favor, and Night Glider, I’m still peeved that they were underutilized and didn’t have much focusing on them after their debut, yet Sugar Belle got more screen time just for being with Big Mac. Some of the writing felt kinda force even with Discord’s apple monster and the CMC’s involvement. Also, the wedding felt tacked on last minute. Just an okay episode.
  13. This week’s MLP outing is Growing Up is Hard To Do, which is oddly enough the CMC’s final episode. The Last Crusade sounded like a fitting end for the CMC and this would’ve been switched. Goes to show how oddly managed this season has been. A rather meh episode all things considered. Probably the only thing to like was how cute Bloofy was and that was it. The plot and message felt lazily forced and predictable esp. with the much of the writing and dialogue. Hay, it even says it smack dab in the episode’s title for goodness sake! Also, didn’t we get the whole grownups aren’t right all the time with Cart Before the Ponies? And the fact I had to reference that episode is troubling enough. The song was weak, the grownup designs were uninteresting and barely changed, and the B plot with the two kids and the pet felt shoehorned into to further emphasis how unsubtle the message is. Again, this doesn’t feel much like last episode for the CMC as much as The Last Crusade was. Probably would’ve been better if it were the CMC graduating from Cheerilee’s school or something. Lastly, I’ve read fanfics over half a decade ago that have age progression/grownup tf stories that were better handled than this. A So-So episode.
