  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. I guess this is an unpopular opinion based on what I've seen on this site and certain other places on the internet... but an objectively mediocre game selling well does not equal a failure. It doesn't equal a dumpster fire. It isn't the second coming of 06. And personally, it always baffles me when I see people talking about Forces as if it's just pure trash objectively speaking (and by objectively speaking, I mean based on the general consensus of professional critics). Not personal opinions, but the cold hard facts about the game - it's a mediocre game that, while a disappointment compared to Mania, still sold 'well enough' according to Sega/Sonic Team. That's just not the same as being a massive, dramatic failure of epic proportions.
  4. Pfff nope, not at all - I've never seen that before in my life! xDD I literally just came up with the pink blob thing off the top of my head.
  5. 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.
  6. 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
  7. 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.
  8. 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
  9. Okay... that new Aladdin trailer got me. Now I'm excited to see this movie for REAL.

  10. Yeah, that's kiiinda what's keeping me skeptical about this whole thing. I don't really trust any rumors, positive or negative.
  11. 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~"


  12. 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.
  13. They definitely didn't HAVE to take away his gloves and give him white-furred hands... but to me, it's not a bad design choice. Personally, I think it's a clever little interesting design choice. It's an unnecessary change in my opinion, sure, but it still keeps his hands white so that it mirrors the color placement of his original cartoony design. Heck, they might not even have a reason beyond just simply wanting to do it. And for me... that's just fine and dandy as well.
  14. I was REALLY wondering if that leaked Kids Choice Awards picture was an old and outdated version of Sonic's look, and I'm glad to see that such was indeed the case. Honestly, I hope he ends up looking like the branding guide version in the final product. That one was my favorite of all of the 'leaks'.
  15. Glad to see that Tyson's not being mean or snarky about the design, and yes, it looks quite nice!
