  1. Took a look at his Wikipedia page; his previous credits are certainly.. interesting? A lot of Seth Rogan movies, but he also did one of the Crank films?? Can't say I'm familiar with much of his work.
  2. Been a good while since I last posted over here... well, I finished up a new video talking about a lot of the behind-the-scenes stuff (plus a bunch of other weird things) regarding the Sonic movie. Check it out if you'd like!


  3. Took me a while to get the motivation to create a new vid, but here we are! Here's the Sonic movie iceberg.
  4. TheKazeblade and Em Bani are, without a doubt, my go-to recommendations for people if they ever want good analytical Sonic-focused channels. Lots of really great constructive insights from the videos of these dudes. Also, not really a Sonic channel at all, but the Geek Critique's Sonic videos are fantastic as well! He got done doing some retrospectives for the Adventure era games not too long ago and they're straight up some of the best long-form video game reviews/video essays/retrospectives/whatever-you-want-to-call-them on the entire site IMO. Besides these guys, I don't really follow a whole lot of other Sonic Youtubers. I guess RadicalSoda still makes Sonic videos? He's pretty funny sometimes I suppose. Those are all my recommendations for ya. Have fun with 'em.
  5. We got a Rotten Tomatoes consensus now lads! [it's also currently at 69% with 54 reviews, on the verge of passing Detective Pikachu as the second-highest rated video game movie on the site, even for a moment]
  6. Another review popped up, this time from Comic Book Resources. Fortunately this one is also pretty negative, citing the film's apparently inconsistent tone and plot as key fundamental flaws with it. I really hope that this review, along with the Slant one, aren't an omen for what's to come for this thing review-wise. EDIT: Also apparently that Slant review got taken down? Guess they got in trouble for breaking the embargo lol
  7. https://old.reddit.com/r/SonicTheMovie/comments/e8ujcs/my_screening_is_over_d/ You gotta dig a bit to find it [or alternatively you could just search through the OP's profile to find his responses, it's in there somewhere]
  8. Spoilering this because, well, these might be actual legit spoilers for the movie:
  9. Oh god, Schwartz and Carrey are so much better in this compared to last time. I liked the idea of them playing these characters before, but the performances felt half-hearted and phoned-in in that first trailer. Now though? It's the total opposite, I'm really digging them. It feels like they're actually having FUN playing these guys, and I actually have fun watching these dudes do their thing now as a result. I'm also gonna repeat a few points that everyone else has said so far. The plot setup still looks really dumb; you can definitely tell that this started off as a Sony film, lol. Sonic's new design looks absolutely adorable, and his animation especially looks great now! He's so much more expressive and everything! I can actually immediately tell what emotion he's feeling now and he's so much more lively too! It's incredible how quickly they turned things around. There are some points in the trailer where the CG in general didn't really blend in all that well with the live-action footage [a few of the shots at Tom's house and at the bar come to mind], but I think that aspect's way better now too shockingly. I thought they were gonna really rush through that part, and yeah I guess they did for those parts, but the ratio of VFX shots that looked convincing versus those that didn't was actually much higher compared to last time, I feel. Now onto the parts that I'm kinda ashamed to admit. I actually laughed at some of the comedy here. Like, genuine laughter, no sense of irony behind it whatsoever. The performances showcased here and the more dynamic animation helped out a lot in its favour. I dunno if it's because the first trailer set the bar so low that I'm feeling this way as a result, but I'm baffled that they managed to kinda turn that aspect around. The action looks great too! The cinematography in those bits were genuinely breathtaking and just, wow, they're just absolutely solid. Nothing else to say here but, dang. I feel like I'm just going insane. According to everything we knew and saw from this film up until now, I should not be genuinely enjoying this as much as I do. And who knows, if the final film ends up being total dogshit regardless, I'll take back everything nice I said in this post. I'm still really cautious about this though. Again, the plot, the single most important aspect of any film, still looks really stupid and is a typical "kooky CG character hangs out in the real world!" kind of story, and it's gonna hurt this film a lot in the long run. But everything else about it? I honestly enjoyed it. Obviously not great, but I had fun watching it. Gonna wait for impressions & reviews on this one before I consider even seeing this in the cinema though, as I'm still pretty weary about it, but I digress.
  10. Finished up this big honkin' Sonic Boom retrospective/documentary! I think I talked about this one a little bit on here before actually. Anyways, I poured my blood, sweat, and tears into this behemoth of a project, so it'd mean a lot if you took the time to check it out (or not, your call)


  11. And here's that Sonic Boom retrospective! Decided to release this a bit earlier than I intended to. Poured my blood, sweat, and tears into this whole project, so go ahead and give it some love [or don't, your call]
  12. This feels like someone took another article and put it through Google Translate like a hundred times. Probably because it actually is, here's the actual original article. Much less mind-numbing to read. And here's the real quote in question for those who don't wanna go there: So overall, it's just marketing fluff really. I'll believe him when I see it.
  13. Here's a preview for my upcoming Sonic Boom retrospective/documentary! I'm really close to wrapping things up and it should be done really, really soon! I'm planning on releasing the whole thing on November 8th, just in time for the show's 5th anniversary. So stay tuned.
  14. I'm really hoping they used the additional time they got to redesign him to tune up the other aspects of the film as well. Call it wishful thinking, but you can't tell me that they noticed and addressed the criticisms towards the original design to this degree without at least noticing the criticisms levied towards the writing and humour. I'm damn sure they reshot some of the film to accommodate for such a change, so they might've used that opportunity to rewrite some of it as well? I dunno. Anyways, I really like how this new design turned out (goddamn he looks so CUTE), and I'm really interested to see that second trailer when it comes out. Let's see if they can truly turn this thing around. Pretty doubtful about that to be honest, but who knows?
  15. Well, two come to mind. The first's Sonic Advance 2. I had never actually played any of the other Advance games in the past despite loving the first game ever since I was a kid (it's among one of the games I replay the most), and I wanted to give the others a shot. So I booted it up on an emulator not too long ago, and well, to put it bluntly, Sky Canyon can go suck a big one. Never really touched it again after that session, and I never got around to playing Advance 3 either. The other one's Sonic 4 Episode II. I was a bit curious about it (and its predecessor) after hearing a lot of the buzz surrounding how bad they are, but I was never in any real rush to go out and buy it. Don't really wanna spend my time playing bad games y'know? The old demo they had on the App Store didn't really convince me otherwise. Then I saw that they made it a part of the Sega Forever initiative and I thought "...alright fine.". At first it wasn't too bad, but eventually it got worse as it went along and I quit at the Oil Desert boss, not because it was frustrating or anything, but because that was the point I decided I was tired of wasting my time on this absolute mediocrity. But yeah these two broke me, even though I grew up with and 100%'d Sonic Genesis on the GBA. Weird. EDIT: I almost forgot mention Sonic Blast! Yeah, that water level fuggin' blows lol
