    It's weird that they didn't namedrop "Eggman" or "Robotnik" when they introduced Carrey; he just kind of shows up... kind of a lame reveal actually.
    It could've gone something like:
    "You're not suggesting who I think your suggesting..."
    "Yes... Dr. Eggman. (or Robotnik) He is the world's leading expert in technology. He has the resources to help us figure out what exactly we're dealing with."

    Thing is I can actually get behind that.
    I mean sure if he is a part of some government agency you may wonder why such a agency would associate with him but maybe he is so good with robotics and drone warfare thus why he is on the payroll.
    It would actually be a great story arc, sure its cliched but what isnt these days?

    You know, there's one moment of that displays the perfect amount of "not giving a shit" in terms of being accurate to the source material. It's here:
    They try to set it up like this big massive reveal, like getting the fans to realise "Oh shit, he's talking about live-action Robotnik". Without specifying the name of the villain, and who they're talking about and who they're dreading asking, it's clear what it's meant to be, especially when it's foreshadowed with a technologically advanced vehicle appearing...
    ...And then the door opens, and it's the most bland, cliched design that looks nothing like Eggman, Robotnik, or whatever. We know who it's supposed to be, because we all knew for months on end this would be played by Jim Carrey, so when we saw him, we knew who it was. But if you went in with no idea who was supposed to be playing Eggman, I have high doubts you'd connect the dots to Game!Eggman in any incarnation if you saw Carrey. You'd figure it out upon seeing the supposed post-credit at the end (which oh look, the best design in the whole trailer is when they bothered to try make it look like the games that have worked for 30 years), but upon that reveal they clearly tried to set up as an epic villain reveal of this iconic bad guy being re-imagined as a live character, it falls on it's face completely.
    As for everything else, that's a whole new story that I'll go over later.

    Also, I rolled my eyes so much when the first line in the trailer was 'gotta go fast'.

    I was honestly grinning ear-to-ear every second Carrey was on screen! His costume(s) also aren't too bad either! More than likely he'll be this movie's saving grace.
    (P.S. Sonic's face will definitely be in my nightmares...)

    Sweet Jesus. 
    The only nice thing I can really outright say is the final scene with Eggman is perfect - but also that’s apparently just right at the end of the film, so we can’t even have that.

    ...and people thought Sonic’s lips on the Modern renders were bad.

    Probably my favorite short yet! Loved all the genuinely funny moments with Knux and others. Sega would be crazy to not keep making these!
    Also Eggman death count: 2 (the first being at the end of the original Mania short)

    Austroid reacted to Gumbit in Your favorite voice actors For the main cast   
    Ryan Drummond voicing Sonic , I dislike Roger Smith , but somehow he sounded better in Wreck it Ralph 2
    Lisa Ortiz voicing Amy
    Jason Griffith voicing Shadow , although that I don't mind other voice actors .
    Lani Minella voicing Rouge .
    Mike Pollock  voicing Eggman .
    I'm not sure about Knuckles , Dan Green sounds good , but I like Scott Dreier .
     
    That's what I thought too , Karen  Strassmen sounds forced and trying too hard to be seductive , Caren Manuel is even worse .

    Hi, someone who prefers the Sonic Adventure voices here. I for one enjoy the energy and charisma they bring to the characters, a kind that, to me, no other cast has matched. People like that they like.

    What's your ideal Sonic voice cast if you could bring back any older ones, or keep them as they are and why?
    If you need to jog your memory this place is pretty handy-> https://www.behindthevoiceactors.com/voice-compare/Sonic-the-Hedgehog/ 
    Sonic: Ryan Drummond overall, with Jason Griffith being a close second. Both really encapsulate what Sonic sounds like. Special mention to Martin Burke (OVA) as there's a certain charm to his take on Sonic. 
    Tails: If I had to pick it would be Connor Bringas (SA2) but I'm not too picky on his voice.
    Knuckles: Dan Green without a doubt. I just loved that more gruff voice he brought to the role; it fitted Knux perfectly!  
    Amy: Preferred Lisa Ortiz, but Jennifer Douillard (SA1) was great as well.
    Eggman: This is kind of bittersweet, because I love Mike Pollock and how long he's been doing the role; but I really miss Deem Bristow's booming voice. Edwin Neal (OVA) is pretty underrated I feel, it would've been pretty neat to of had him in Generations or something.
    Shadow: David Humphrey all the way, but Kirk Thornton kind of grew on me in Forces.
    Rouge: Lani Minella (SA2) was overall the most balanced to me. Not too "try-hard sultry" like the others.
    With everyone else, I don't really have a preference.

    Its not terrible... but he kind of looks like a reject from those Skylanders games.
    This just makes me all the more anxious to see how dear old Jim Carrey looks as our favorite egg-obsessed madman. The suspense is killing me!

    Austroid got a reaction from BlueSky in Which Archie characters were good , and which were bad ?   
    I always thought Elias Acorn was a neat and likable character.

    Going from a conflicted prince who runs away from his responsibilities, marries and starts a family with a commoner, eventually his wife convinces him to return to Knothole where he stops Sally from marrying Antoine's evil doppelganger, and becomes the new king; often going out on the front lines with the Freedom Fighters. At least his arc made sense compared to his sister's, whom I'll never really get why she's such a fan favorite; she made Sonic's apparent death after #125 about HER for pete's sake...

    Austroid got a reaction from Fire-N-Space in Character interaction in Sonic cutscenes   
    100% agree with this.
    Ever since Sonic Team brought back secondary characters into the stories following Generations, I've never once thought "These guys are all such close friends!" In Lost World Knuckles and Amy might as well of been cardboard cutouts. With Forces they've all been fighting for months, yet their briefings feel so stilted; acting like acquaintances at a office like you said. We're just supposed to assume guys like Silver and the Chaotix are just as good friends as Sonic and Tails? Based on what: that they're in the same room together?
    You'd think of all things global war would strengthen their relationships. But no, just another day at the office...
