  1. Welp. It finally happened. I was called a Paramount PR intern for saying that I'm hyped for this movie and that even though Sonic did look not-so-good in SOME shots, he looked awesome in other shots. xDDD
  2. It's finally here. And I watched it. And I'm much more hyped for this movie now~ I do think that some shots of Sonic look much worse than others in the trailer... but some shots look legit awesome as well. I don't blame anyone for disliking or even hating his design - I can definitely understand that, seeing the finished product in motion. For ME, he looks fine and now that I've heard him speak, he SOUNDS fine. Heck, I think he sounds awesome. Jim Carrey as Eggman... looks amazing. So over the top and silly. xDD The humor doesn't seem too forced and it doesn't seem cringy at all. So far, of course - things can always change as more gets revealed. This looks like a silly, ridiculous, goofy movie and I am HERE for it. I DO think that Detective Pikachu did a better job with the CG and bringing the characters into the real world. That being said... while I DO wanna see Detective Pikachu, I'm legitimately more interested in seeing the story of Sonic play out. I dunno, the trailers for Detective Pikachu have yet to sell me on the actual plot/storyline of that movie. I'll also say that, after watching this trailer... yeah, I don't see a soulless cashgrab made by people who don't care or know about the source material. I don't see a purely corporate product made without any talent, effort, passion, whatever else some people are inevitably gonna say. I don't see that here. I see questionable design choices... and that's really about it. But hey, that's just me. Watching this trailer, I was grinning from ear to ear pretty much the whole time, and it was never in an ironic or this-looks-so-bad-it's-good way. It took me back to being a kid again and being excited to see something I love on the big screen. Even despite some parts where I was like "...yeah, right there, he doesn't look that good.", I came away from the trailer thinking "...yep. I'm good. I'm sold. I can't wait to see this now." And while I don't think it's gonna be some AMAZING movie by any stretch of the imagination... for ME, it looks like it's gonna be a legitimate fun, silly time and I'm totally ready to be taken along for the ride. If some people absolutely HATE the way this looks, I get it. If some people LOVE it, I also get it. I'm somewhere in the middle, but definitely leaning more towards the positive side. And Gangsta's Paradise... was WEIRD in this trailer... but man, it still somehow fit REALLY well xDD Especially when the actual chorus started, I actually got a few chills~ So yeah, I'm hyped.
  3. It seems to me that the people making this movie are picking and choosing different parts from different places in the Sonic franchise AND adding their own original stuff in there on top of it where they feel like it. They're not staying faithful to any ONE game and are kinda just going loosey-goosey, if that makes any sense. xD I'm fine with them doing that - so far, everything that I've seen in relation to the plot and Sonic himself, nothing is straying TOO far from what makes Sonic 'Sonic' to me. Which is that he's a blue hedgehog that runs fast and has to defeat Dr. Robotnik. If they play around with other bits and pieces, leave some things out and add left-field things in... hey, nothing wrong with that in my opinion. Sonic has changed several times throughout the different games, cartoons, comic series, etc. I see no reason why the movie can't just be another iteration. I GET why some people wouldn't like such a loosey-goosey way of making a movie based on a video game franchise... but I also get why it's not that big of a deal for others. If they came out and turned Sonic into a pink blob of slime who attacked random people on the street and still called him Sonic, THEN I'd for sure be like... yeeaaaaah, now that's a problem for me. I can't get behind that. xDD BUT STILL, at the end of the day, the people in charge can do whatever they want. I don't have to like it, and I also don't have to pay money to support it.
  4. Alright, now... all of THAT right there... sounds really awesome. Sounds like something I could have genuine fun with AND good laughs, both at the ridiculousness AND the intended jokes. And Jim Carrey as Eggman sounds like an over-the-top HOOT, which I absolutely love the sound of. xDD
  5. Based on everything I'm seeing... it seems like most people who've seen these trailers are leaning more towards the positive side. Which, personally, makes me quite happy.
  6. Personally, I LOVE when Sonic tells really bad, cheesy, silly jokes. I also don't mind if they're just... allowed to stand and don't get challenged or anything by his companions or anyone around him. xD
  7. Okay... that new Aladdin trailer got me. Now I'm excited to see this movie for REAL.

  8. I've always had a hard time understanding any of the lyrics in Shadow's level themes from SA2. And now, when I listen to the Rhythm & Balance remix from Forces' soundtrack, I SWEAR I hear "Oh yeah, I'm Rudy Giuliani's brother, I'm not scared~"


  9. I don’t know about everyone else, but I’m getting real tired of the rumors and leaks and people just saying that they know what’s going to happen. x_x We definitely need some official news from official sources soon, because this stuff is getting way out of hand in my opinion.
  10. Glad to see that Tyson's not being mean or snarky about the design, and yes, it looks quite nice!
  11. For me personally, Sonic becoming super popular again isn't a big priority. As long as I can enjoy the movie, I'm good. Better than good. And so far, based solely on the plot information that's been revealed and what I've seen of Sonic's design, I see nothing that would stop me from enjoying it. I can't say for sure that I'll enjoy it, but I also can't say that I'll hate it either. As of right now, I'm looking forward to more and more OFFICIAL reveals and information so I can get a better idea of what's actually gonna happen.
  12. I believe I saw Naoto Oshima recently saying that he'd support all Sonic's on Twitter, when asked how he feels about the movie design.
  13. Oh, absolutely. If the film is really well written and captures Sonic’s personality really well, that design wouldn’t turn me off nearly enough to not enjoy it. I’m still not convinced that it’s the worst thing ever, or that the movie is going to automatically be a huge massive bomb. Movies that seemed absolutely destined to be flops have ended up not being flops before. The opposite is also true, sure, but it can still happen.
  14. I'm not too big a fan of that still image. That being said, it also doesn't worry me that much because it's quite grainy/not-good-quality and looks like it's been taken when he was in the middle of talking while running. I need to see Sonic in actual motion in a trailer before I can form any sort of concrete opinion. Still, the cartoony branding guide pics from yesterday? Those just keep growing on me~
  15. -shrugs- I dunno. Even if it doesn't happen, the white hands are fine with me.
