  1. There's been a couple of reactions from people who have seen the film at advanced screenings. This is a review from someone who didn't like the film but thought it was fun. According to Reddit, he points out this: The CGI of Sonic looks unfinished in lots of scenes (probably because of the critics and reworking) Full of references from Game and other medias, incluiding Mario for some reason. Jim Carrey is near perfect as Robotnik, but he doesnt use the same clothing as he does in the games until very later on. James Marden doesn't work as a comedian duagonist alongside Sonic. Jim Carrey is miles funnier than him in the movie. Sonic backstory is sad as fuck for some reason. Third Act goes downhill and it's pretty bad. Game theme song is not used in the movie. Mostly contemporary pop songs. Very repetitive movie, with lots of "Sonic being fast" jokes. Leaves open for sequel at the end, with title card and all (like Mario movie did) So a sequel will likely depend on the movie's success Here's another review from someone who enjoyed the film. He doesn't really seem like a great film critic, however, every film he's gotten to see at an early screening (he always praises them), has always gotten positive reception from most critics. Another person who has allegedly seen the movie is claiming that it is flawed, but fun, and that Sonic and Robotnick are the best characters I'm expecting mixed or decent reception like Detective Pikachu. Probably one of the better video game movies. Keep in mind again, this film has been called cheesy by a lot of audiences.
  2. Hey guys! Keep in mind that the film is having its private premier screening tommorow in LA. We might here some criticism. I don't think that "final trailer" that random Twitter poster talked about is happening. I honestly think that it would have been shown this week or last week if it was really THAT soon. And plus, movies that are only an hour and 30 minutes normally don't get more than 2 trailers these days. With all this being said, I may leave this forum for a while to avoid major spoilers now. I think it's also time I admitted, I know a few people who worked on this movie. I know some people on here are probably not going to enjoy it because it's essentially "Not MY Sonic!" for some people, but as a movie on its own, for people with an open mind, and general audiences, I honestly think it's going to turn out well for them. I think it will be decent. Definitely one of the better video game movies.
  3. Not gonna lie, the lack of funny lines and reuse of that same "I HAVE NO IDEA" scene is sort of bothering me. But still, very curious to see this movie and not doubting good comedy just yet. I think the "almost constantly" line is little funny, but not hilarious. Though again, that's also reused footaged. Edit: to be fair, we have been warned that although this film is good, there's some cheesiness
  4. All of the promotion for it right now is completely normal. Of course a restaurant is going to promote it, toys and merch is going to be made, and SEGA would have something to do with it. Honestly, I actually don't think they're doing enough with advertising. Boom had more promotion than this.
  5. Yeah...I'm not doubting this movie will be good, but I do have some suspicions sometimes. This is an "adventure comedy". Not an ACTION adventure comedy. So I bet a lot of people are expecting a huge emphasis on action scenes, when really, this movie is almost primarily going to focus on its humor and its story (its characters too). There have been few jokes that got a chuckle out of me (my favorite being the child abduction joke), but other than that...the humor isn't all that impressive. I also noticed there's a lot of scenes where characters are screaming. I hope that isn't a common thing throughout the movie. and Tom has that same "WHAT!?", "NO DON'T DO THAT", "THIS CAN'T BE HAPPENING!", "DO NOT DO THAT", kind of personality you see in every one of these live action adaptations that have an animal friend involved (Detective Pikachu was a lot like that too). But like I said, a major thing that has raised my suspicion is the extreme lack of advertising here in the US. I find it odd how they're JUST NOW releasing TV spots here. Do they not care about box office because the film is so bad, or are they so confident with how much publicity it gained during the post to full redesign process that they think it will succeed? I haven't lost all hope in the jokes though. A trailer does not represent an entire movie. Dora and Angry Birds 2 looked like absolute unfunny trash in the trailers but ended up hilarious. I feel like the same case will apply here. EDIT: I will say though I find it weird how they keep reusing the same footage in all the ads. Like the exact same thing in every one. Especially the "HOW ARE YOU NOT DEAD!?" scene
  6. In the pre-redesign version of the film he's smiling in that shot. Odd that he's not here. The original version gave me the vibe of him being witty. To be fair, he looked like he was standing up in the original too. Although the direction of Sonic looking back at Tom is way off in that image too.
  7. Again, considering we haven't seen the entire film, and that this is an origin story, it's kind of reasonable as to why they don't look like badnicks. This takes place during a time before Sonic and Robotnik met, and we know that Robotnik gets crazier as the film progresses. My prediction is that Sonic is the one that caused him to have a fascination with capturing animals and using their powers. I wouldn't say that's a spoiler because it's pretty clear that's what's happening in this film. A sequel or possibly towards the end of this film is when we start to see badnicks develop. Also epic photos, where did you find that?
  8. I'm glad that there's potential swearing in this movie, and I'm happy that Detective Pikachu had that as well. The American PG rating needs to start actually freaking meaning something these days.
  9. I'd rather have an adaptation of an already existing property try something entirely different and new that we've never seen the character be involved with before than something that's just the same thing we have seen before. Sonic being an alien and entering the human world is in fact something we've seen before (it's not even the most original kind of story), but going more in depth with that and using it as an origin of how Sonic and Robotnik first met is interesting to me. Showing what Sonic was like as a child, and how he controls his power, is indeed interesting to me. I honestly like that this ADAPTATION is taking an entirely different and unusual approach to the franchise. I don't like how Sonic was originally designed in this movie and looked nothing like Sonic, but I do like that there's a completely new story for this character to tackle for us audiences to see. If this film wasn't advertised yet, and there were test screenings, and I was to choose to whether or not I should watch a test screening for an animated Satam film adaptation based on the comics, or a test screening of this movie, (only knowing what the stories are for these films and nothing else) I would probably watch this one just because it's new premise intrigues me. "Live action Sonic The Alien Origin Story" intrigues me just because of how bizarre it sounds. And I really think it could be pulled off with good execution.
  10. Haven't seen that video yet, but if I'm going to be honest...I wouldn't mind some kind of Sonic reboot spawning from this film. The Sonic franchise has such a confusing timeline, setting, and rule on what's canon or not canon. It's like we get a completely different soft reboot everytime they change the voice cast and it just adds more to confusion. I think they should make some sort of spin off adaptation (like a film series, cartoon, or even anime) to explain the entirety of the story of these games in a proper less confusing timeline. I wouldn't even mind a continuation of Sonic X to be real, since they already got Adventure 1 and 2 down. It'd be cool if we got to see that series or these films adapt games we never got to see adapted before. Like Sonic 3 & Knuckles, Sonic CD, a better story for Sonic Heroes/Shadow The Hedgehog, the Sonic Advance series, the Sonic Rush series, the two storybook games, Sonic Unleashed, etc. And no, I'm not really thinking of Sonic fans themselves when I say this, I'm once again thinking of general audiences who have never played these games before. They could now visit these stories from another medium such as film or a series.
  11. This film has been described as having a "hard PG". Do you think it'll have slight swearing like Detective Pikachu?
  12. I chose that because Sonic is acting as if saving the world is a simple or fun essential task (hence the word "basically"). His tone of voice and the fact that he's smiling with somewhat of a smug expression while saying that, kind of gives off a "I'm going to have fun kicking Robotnik's ass" kind of vibe to me.
  13. "Is that all you got!?" "Let me know if you wanna go round two with the blue!" "Basically it looks I'm gonna have to save your planet." "Look at this! I took 9 million steps today." I'm assuming it's going to be a combination (or probably a character growth) of Sonic's goofiness and snarky behavior. The origin of how that trait developed. Kind of reminds me of Sonic X in a way.
  14. Everyone keeps saying "Sonic needs to be cool" but don't understand how subjective of a term the word "cool" means to people. Many people view that word completely differently. I know people who DO think this film looks "cool" and they're not even Sonic fans. Do you want him to be a stereotypical 90's character that tries unbarably hard to be cool? Do you want him to be exactly like modern Sonic? Do you want a Sonic similar to Star Lord from Guardians Of The Galaxy? Do you want Sonic to be quoting stupid outdated slang/memes? Just saying "I want him to be cool" isn't descriptive at all. I don't blame the team for making Sonic act like a Looney Tunes character with childish charisma. This is a comedy. A live action film comedy about a cartoon animal that runs really fast, destroys robots, and can teleport. Sonic Boom got pretty wacky as a comedic cartoon as well. And it was praised. I personally think this whole zaney speed dynamic in this film could be a really creative unique execution of comedy in Sonic that we've never seen before (rather than just seeing something done over again or taking the already silly idea of a live action Sonic movie super seriously).
  15. Like I said, not in the US (which has a population of over 300 million people)
