  1. Anyone else notice a lot of Sonic 4 footage was used for the behind the scenes featurette? Felt kind of odd... (Also the Sonic Forces Eggman image they used in the same featurette was noticeably low-res. Wonder if some of this was a result of the pandemic?)
  2. Something that's been on my mind for awhile is: Why doesn't the TMNT fandom seem to get any negative attention like the Sonic fanbase? Going through the different incarnations we've got: the original comics, '87 cartoon, '90s live action movies, '90s Next Mutation show, 2003 cartoon, 2007 CGI movie, 2012 Nick cartoon, the Michael Bay live-action movies, and currently Rise of the TMNT. (You could also probably count the different comic runs done by Archie and IDW for good measure.) Most if not all have their own devoted sub-fanbases. Some like the darker comics and shows, some like the more light-hearted stuff, others fall more in-between. With all these varying comics/shows/movies differing in designs, tone, writing, etc. why doesn't it seem like the fandom has the kind of problems we Sonic fans so often get accused of? (Like we don't know what we want, we're never happy, etc.) I'd like to know what you guys think!
  3. Yeah, that makes more sense. I didn't catch the number before the 7 in theaters; but the way he's monologuing makes it seem like he hasn't been there that long. Either way, you could sum it up with "he's going loony." (or maybe eating too many of the mushrooms lol)
  4. After all the modern era games from 2010-onward, its nice to see Sonic emote more than "I'm the one-note wisecracker who never takes things seriously!"
  5. Just saw it tonight. Its still kinda surreal that a Sonic movie exists lol. Thought it was great overall! (Waaay better then what Disney's been doing with Star Wars as of late; this coming from a lifelong fan.) Seeing Sonic actually have a personality again was nice; really got tired of the smarmy, cocksure take we've had for awhile. Jim Robotnik was more of an a-hole than I was expecting, but he felt like Eggman should by the end imo. Really hoping we get some sequels!
  6. How perfect is this shot of Jim Carrey? (Its too bad his mustache wasn't real according to a recent interview.)
  7. I swear there used to be info on Wikipedia, Sonic News Network, Sonic Retro, etc. that listed rejected names that SOA were considering before settling on Robotnik. I think one was something like "Mr. Badman." I can't seem to find them anywhere now. Anyone else know what I'm talking about? (Its driving me nuts all the sudden. lol)
  8. It would be cool if they added in Chaos 3 and 5 boss fights since we never saw those forms! Maybe even make a Chaos mini-game where you play as him going on a rampage through Station Square racking up points or something.
  9. I always thought it was neat that in the UK comics Super Sonic was a psychotic, alternate form. There would be desperate times where he was needed, but it would be risky considering his unpredictable nature; and whether or not he would revert back to "regular Sonic." Also in Sonic Underground the Chaos Emeralds actually causing chaos all over Mobius was pretty neat; like with UK Super Sonic there's the unpredictability factor; collecting them means power but also catastrophe.
  10. Okay but, that opening shot of South Island complete with that little piano melody is just pure magic! Honestly I choked up a bit. That shot is what the franchise is all about for me!
  11. Eggman wore a red cardigan as a child. Knuckles likes digging to clear his head/take his mind off things. Sonic is finicky about his quills looking "cool."
  12. How awesome would it be after successfully entering Sonic's world for Jim-botnik to proclaim "It worked! That 'hog can't escape me that easily! I am the EGGMAN!!"
  13. Definitely a HUGE improvement over the previous trailer all around. With Carrey's signature acting and Sonic's better look, this is looking like an okay time! Also, I honestly loved the Carrey Eggman dancing bit; its in his character imo. (Plus Eggman's always emitted that kind of unexplainable majesty lol.)
  14. I've said it once and I'll say it until the end of time: Helen should've been the main human character. A handicapped girl being able to go on adventures and see the world with Sonic and friends is just an infinitely better premise. I can just imagine all the wholesome goodness that would come with it! Also how much more sense would it of been for her to remind Shadow of Maria instead of Chris? Its such a shame she was hardly in the show and only got one episode focused on her. Though in that episode the chemistry with Sonic and Helen was much more real and believable; I never got the vibe that Sonic truly liked being with Chris despite the show trying to tell the contrary. So yeah, even though I liked X overall, Helen being a main character would've been a HUGE step up for the show. (Also I always loved that she seemed to wear the pants in her relationship with Chris when they got older, and that she was a better driver than him too lol)
  15. There was that episode Hedgehog Hunt, where he threatens Team Sonic and the Chaotix about a Metarex fleet surrounding the planet they're hiding on. Only to use his own Egg Crimson disguised as the Blue Typhoon to take the fall for them. This even gets his lackeys frustrated; why does he want to both destroy and protect Sonic? He never even brings this up in future episodes to wipe in their faces or anything. Who does that? The Eggman does. (It always bugged me how Sonic AND Vector kind of knew about this, but never told anyone else; unless it was a dub thing.)
