    Seriously one of the most hilarious yet horrifying thumbnails I've ever seen on Youtube.

    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)

    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.

    I'm going with the 4kids cast purely for nostalgia reasons.

    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...

    Maybe less detailed models can make for more vibrant expressions.

    To me I think the models should've changed a long time ago. They were great in Sonic Unleashed, but ever since Generations they've degraded in quality and continued to do so. They look so lifeless and static to me. Sonic's model in Forces changed so much for no reason at all. I also hate how you can literally see the fabric their gloves are made from, it looks gross. lol
    So yeah, newer more expressive models are needed. Also better animators and screenwriters or whatever, cause every cutscene ever since Colors feels and looks the same.

    Austroid reacted to Blue Blood in Modern Eggman Model Rant   
    I would like to extend the OP's sentiments to all the currently used models (Unleashed/S4/Colours/Generations/Lost World/Forces). They have detail in all the wrong places, such as strange awkwardly modelled mouths with bottom lips (plus the side mouth) and very bland facial expressions. They don't look good, and I'm honestly quite glad that Sumo Digital are still using the SatSR/Olympic models in TSR. They look so much better.

    Austroid reacted to Sonic Fan J in Modern Eggman Model Rant   
    I get that feeling all too well honestly, but hey if you don't gamble on it you'll never get the thoughts off your chest and that can be far worse honestly. As for Eggman's modern design, I think a lot of the problem probably stems from the fact that they somewhere along the line forgot that his egg shape from which his name derives includes his head and just started making his body egg-shaped on it's own throwing off his original proportions and having to balance it out with tweaks to his limbs. It's part of why BOOM! Eggman is muscular as they simply inverted the egg of his body in disregard to the shape originally including his head. As for the extra details, I think that's a case of SEGA getting obsessed with the need to look realistic like all the AAA developers and forgetting that their series is based on an art style that existed decades before CG was a thing. It's why you'll occasionally hear me praise Arc System Works and comment on how I'd like them to handle the graphic assets of a Sonic game just do to how truthful they can be to hand drawn styles with their 3D work.

    That's because all three were drawn by Patrick Spaziante, who had a knack for drawing loads of shit going on. His cover art always made the series look so much more interesting than it actually was, and probably was what carried the series' for the better part of it's...age of suckage.
