    Some of you might enjoy this.

    I decided to re-watch the trailer and tried to find every reference and Easter Egg possible.
     
    There's some that I'm not 100% convinced on, like the the red baseball hat being a reference to Sonic Unleashed/Underground, but since the GH is obviously Green Hills, figure SU would also be something.

    There's a lot in the motel scene, not just the ledge balancing Sonic, but the TV is showing a movie in which both Time Miller and Jeff Fowler worked on... Then it shows a weird product placement for ketchup and Enterprise car hire.
    A few smaller things which may or may not be direct references but rather accidental ones, like the tumble dryer being a small nod to the origin of Sonic in Fleetway/SOA's sonic comic. Also the kung fu Sonic is more or less parodying both Enter the Dragon and The Karate Kid.

    So... Yeah my thoughts on this. Also all my examples and references can be found in my video on the trailer... I'm not capping and uploading individual images for this. So check out the video for examples of what I'm talking about.

    This trailer feels like a click-bait thumbnail for a misleading video in many ways. Now... Yes the design is light years ahead of ManHog. Yes the trailer is fun, it's exciting and will please a lot of people.
    But that isn't the movie. The movie isn't a series of small moments like this... it's a feature length movie.
     
    And if you look at trailer 1 and compare what was in that, which isn't in this...
    * The military scenes are almost gone. 
    * The Generals are gone.
    * Toms girlfriend is almost gone.
    * The awful dialogue from before has been cut out.
     
    Buuuut... Most of that is still in and still is the movie. 
    Even what was poor before is still poor now. Jim Carrey's performance is not good, it's his 'doing it for a pay-cheque' performance that we've seen before. His costume is still generic black coat man, the badniks are just generic drones which look like toys you find in a gadget shop... Which makes no sense, even the first trailer makes out that Eggman is this crazy eccentric who can't really be trusted... So go all out with it, make it so that he designs robots that look like creatures instead of generic robots.
    Some of the VFX isn't finished and looks really poor (check out the scene in Sonic's home, some of the VFX is really bad, note the tyre that Sonic stands on when he plays ping pong).
     
    The design looks better, maybe even great... But the movie?

    Badnik Mechanic got a reaction from McGroose in Night of The Living Tails Doll - Live Action Sonic Themed B-Movie   
    So for this years Halloween I wanted to make something a little different, I decided to make a live action spooky short movie. 
     
     
    Night of the Living Tails Doll starts off as a typical youtube unboxing video, but then as the sun goes down, the plush comes to live and looks for it's next victim. 
     
    This is the first time I've attempted to make a short film like this, normally I just film 'presenting' style hence why the lighting isn't amazing at one point.
    The short was filmed over a number of nights during October and 1 week in September for the daytime scenes.
     
    In terms of production values (LOL!), I more or less filmed every scene on my own, there are 1 or 2 shots where I had to ask a 2nd person to either hold a light or move the camera where it was impossible for me to do so without building some elaborate contraption to pull off the intended effect.
     
    So I hope you enjoy this, and hey it's a live action Sonic movie that you don't have to pay for!

    Badnik Mechanic got a reaction from tailsBOOM! in Team Sonic Racing: Instruction Manual   
    Old post but...
    I'd say the manual isn't trolling.
    The game was made by Sumo Digital and they normally do put stories into their games and have a lot of story elements planned even if they don't make it to the final release.
     
    Case in point would be Sega Superstars Tennis which did have a story written up for it, but I don't think it was ever released.
    ASRT also had a ton of creative assets cut from the game just a few months before release (a completely alternative sticker set and other graphics for a few things). Some of these did get released but not very well documented.
    So whoever wrote the manual probably was working off a older brief which got changed mid development.

    Badnik Mechanic got a reaction from Strong Guy in The History of the Sonic Mascot Costume   
    I actually managed to find some video of this costume. It's extremely brief and it great quality.
    But it seems the Knuckles costume was used at some of the old Sega roadshows and would often be used at the more big profile one.
    One show in particular was the BBC Radio One Summer Roadshow event. 
    3 of the Sega busses turned up to that one including the Sonic, Tails and Knuckles mascot, the brief clip shows them dancing on stage. 
     
    I really need to get around to doing the 2nd sonic mascot vid.

    Badnik Mechanic got a reaction from Nina Cortex Jovahexeon in Terminator: Dark Fate (Paramount's 'other' movie)   
    So the movie is out this week (UK). And there are a few reviews out.
    Basically, the French media got the wrong embargo date, so a lot of reviews from french sources... and the movie was shown at a Surprise screening yesterday, so a bunch of thoughts from that...
    There be LOADS of spoilers ahead.
     
     
    So the one thing which keep popping up and this has my alarm bells ringing... The movie is being compared A LOT to the Force awakens, in that it feels like a re-telling of Terminator 1 and 2 in order to set up a new storyline. 
    So I hope this is a case of a re-telling like how Predators was a re-telling/sequel of the original Predator, and not a Force Awakens style of sequel/retelling.
