  1. Yeah, I also think so 🙂 I think only the new date was printed and glued over the old one 🙂 So the poster remained as nothing else needed to change at that time 😉
  2. I sure would prefer the separate-eyes style as that is something setting him apart from other Sonics 🙂 Something iconic just for him 😉 Some spin to the gloves too - fingerless, special runner-type gloves (like those for "sliding the ground" or what for they are - for me they are just special gloves XD). But that doesn't mean your pictures are bad 🙂 I like them ❤️
  3. My words ❤️ I'm sorry if I sometimes sound aggressive, I swear I try not to. And I may have nitpicking questions as just some things don't make sense to me ^_^; I still believe people should see the movie first before saying it's bad. So what if a few CGI movies were bad. I read Transformers have like 5-6 movies with only the first one and Bumblebee being the good ones (and it still had so cliché plot, but the slower pacing was enjoyable - I saw the last one, and yeah, I can say it's an okay movie. The Robot CGI was pretty cool.). Rest was like crazy action ride with a minimal plot or some character development. If it's true, why making more movies when they were "trainwreck"? If we get a lot of bad fully CGI movies, should we stop making them? A lot of movies have not so good trailer but are good. Others have the best scenes inside the trailer and are quite bad. But how do we know this? We can know only after seeing the movie. But before - that's assuming (just like I assume the movie is going to be good to decent watch) - unless you saw the pre-screening which seems a lot of people ignore. Maybe they think those people are fakers as they enjoyed the movie with 7/10 in average rating (as a few of them said/wrote) or just don't know about them. Why not go with neutral expectation? Some movies are eye-candy and have a sucky story. Some look strange in visuals, but their story leaves you with tons of questions. I know Sonic won't be about deep stuff, but more about friendship, adventure, and action - and that is a combination I like. Heck, I even read a few romance books (and romance is a genre I dislike a lot) and I enjoyed them because I gave them a chance to show me what they are made of. So, instead of acting like "seers", let's see what future has for us with our own eyes 😉 = see it and then judge 😉 Cool, maybe there will be Baby Movie Sonic plush ❤️ We found finally got official Baby Sonic ❤️ I hope it could have paw pads and no gloves - what baby wears gloves outside of winter (or when super small to protect themselves from their nails) XD
  4. I'm not good at spotting them, but those are Easter eggs I found about on the Internet. Are they fake? Overthinking? That's up to as to decide. I write stories, and I have a reader who told me I have an Easter Egg there when my MC messed an idiom that is something one character from anime do. I never intended for this to be an Easter Egg. I don't even know that anime. So is it one or not? The reader saw it as one, for me it's a coincidence - but it still made me happy. So, what do you like about Sonic? Character - Seems to be spot on. Action - the missile and chase scene seemed fine. Puns/chatterbox - Seems okay to me too. Voice - I have no problem. Adventure - We will visit many places on Earth (Big cities, forest, desert, maybe even military stronghold, Robotnik's hi-tech lab, ...) and adventure is about traveling. Character growth - It's hinted there are similar scenes as well. Getting stronger - Sonic's speed is supposed to evolve during the movie. Design - I'm fine with it, and a lot of artists tried to draw him and find out this choice isn't that half-bad as people claim. It has its flaws, but who doesn't? So what is an Easter Egg to you? Edit: I'm not sure if this counts as an Easter Egg, but the text "Every Hero has a genesis" is the same as in Bumblebee trailer "Every hero has a beginning". I have seen the trailer just now. Which reminds me Robotnik's truck is called an easter egg too as it resembles one of the car-bot 😉 And the genesis refers to the console where Sonic started... so I guess just another useless reference that is a complete misunderstanding!
  5. The ring portal is definitely a reference - as I saw people who had no idea what that is despite they played the games. Come on, Special stage? There is a theory that Game Sonic is an Alien too (to his own world). And as far as I know, it's kinda official SA1, SA2, Unleashed and many similar games happened in a world of humans while Forces happens in Sonic's home world/dimension. I don't know where it was stated or by who, but it was somebody involved with development and Sega. So the movie uses the same base. The mountain of shoe referred to SatAM episode where Uncle Chuck lets Sonic test is latest shoes after Sonic destroyed many of them 😉 Uhh...meow - That is a throwback to Sonic X when Chris calls his mom to say he saved a cat and not blue, talking hedgehog. Those big mushrooms seem like fine easter egg to me. The quills are also interesting. All the time it seemed Sonic had only like 7-8 quills, but this "confirms" Sonic has quills like normal hedgehogs, they are just in a "cluster" of big shapes (simple animation, save times rendering,...). The same suggests Boom Sonic who has some "loose" quills among his main clusters 😉 Oh... in the military scene where are people sitting around the table there is one older person on the left. I'm absolutely bad with names, but this person was involved with SatAM or the other kid's cartoon - It's even confirmed by this person... So... So... nothing here counts? What type of Easter Eggs do you want? All of those feel fine to me. And I hope you checked the comment on that page that shows even more Easter Eggs and references 😉
  6. Unpopular opinion: I'm excited about Sonic Movie ❤️ If you are too and dislike all the hatred around it, check many awesome posts at Tumblr. The search engine won't show you all posts, but the mentioned blogs have the positivity covered with Movie-Sonic-positivity and Movie-Robotnik-positivity taking the lead 🙂 You will find fanarts, headcanons, funny jokes, theories, and easter eggs they discovered 😄 There are also comic-like fanarts and they are top-notch ❤️
  7. Well, is that a problem? I mean, people were/are angry for Sonic to have puma when he already wore real-life Soap shoes in SA1. So, was there any "hate/dislike" for soap shoes instead of red sneakers? That there was a real-life ad in the game everybody loves? And aren't Sonic's shoes the generic looking ones? It's just red with a white strap and some buckle. The design was made simple for the game purpose and that works. And if Sonic is living on Earth for a few years at the beginning of the movie, and broke his original shoes, it makes sense he has to get some that fit him. So, he goes after human shoes since he no longer can access his old shops (if there are any ;-)). Also, it means he had grown up, so he can't use his old shoes anyway 😉 That means we may see him with his old shoes since there should be some flashback scene since Baby Sonic figure seems to be at work 🙂 Actually, I saw this too, and it seems some people really thought this is official. It kinda has everything Movie Sonic has and is hated for - small eyes, weird/creepy face, this one is actually wearing some sort of all-body-suit, the shoes aren't "iconic" (but the sole is pretty interesting, and the shoes are actually equipped with some "function"), the ears are human-placed and not exactly hedgehog-pointy, and the body is more to a human side. Well, I can say I don't like it, but I don't hate it. However, the concept itself is nice. The more I look at it, the more I see it can work, but not probably as Sonic, but more like a different creature. Or it can pass as Sonic on a more realistic-humanoid side for a story that isn't for kids. So why not? After all, this is a static picture, and we know that hardly shows it in an action 😄 The author also wrote a blog entry about his design and choice. I think it represents any type of redesign, so everybody can learn from it a bit 😉 The author also realized Movie Sonic's design hardly deserves such hatred it got during his process. TLDR: It may not be my cup of tea, but I can see this Sonic growing on me with time 😉 I don't know, but I think it could be the picture mentioned above 😉
  8. Any idea who is the author of this picture? It popped on my FB, and the poster doesn't mention any source and is not sure if it's official. The reverse search leads to only one "accurate" find with saying "the author is Skyeprowler", but I can't find the original anyway. The link on the picture leads to some movie streaming site.
  9. So, it probably was a lot of kids playing Sonic games. I saw that movie a few weeks ago, so I have no idea what the situation was around that time, just read it failed, not much reason was given in the comments.
  10. Well, so if fully 3D is better - does it mean this hybrid Movie plot works better in the 3D? Would it be accepted by fans? It's hard to think 3D is all it needs when so many people shout - It's going to suck even with the redesign! After "asking" for the redesign "to make the movie better". Or what plot you, as a fanbase, wants? I'm finding the origin an interesting. And this may seem off-topic, but Ratchet and Clank have 3D movie, with a plot I enjoyed (never played the games), yet it seems it failed so miserably it resulted in canceling Sly Cooper fully 3D movie in 2016 was supposed to be air. I found the teaser trailer on YT, and after digging around a bit, this info was often mentioned. On wikipedia, is mentioned a TV series to come out in October 2019 and the possibility of the movie airing/getting finished after the release. So, does fully 3D would convince people it's a great movie? And if the majority of fans shouted - fully 3D is better, and the majority of fans shouted - we want Sonic using guns/weapons - why was the reaction so negative (when majority wanted it? Or it was just a handful of them?) when Shadow got guns and Sonic sword (even before people playing the games)? I can't just wrap my head around this.
  11. So, what do you suggest? What is the right direction for the majority? For you? Are the people from pre-screening saying - Sonic looked good, different, but recognizable. The plot was enjoyable, nice action, and storytelling. - fake? Were they bad example from fans and non-fans? Why the pre-screening when it actually even doesn't matter.
  12. Yes, so we have to try it, to see how it works. So, each game brings something new to test the possibilities. That's why I said, "it could mean a bad thing". I thought it suggests it can be good or bad ^_^; I thought Dr. Eggman is preferred to be 2D evil too? At least, that's what I got from some responses. And aren't BD's powers Chaos-based just like Shadow's? I mean, Shadow has BD's DNA so it makes sense if Shadow can teleport so BD or throw some Chaos balls and co. I just don't remember hearing/seeing Shadow'S powers being called generic. Or is the hive-mind generic idea? So, how do you think BD should look to fit in?
  13. While I agree at the last point, you can easily say it can mean the decision to bring Tails (new thing) was bad? If we want to be really nitpicking, any new element = booster, enemy, character and so on, could mean a bad thing. If the 1st game established Sonic Vs. Eggman, why to change it to Sonic + Tails Vs. Eggman? What purpose Tails has in single player? From what I remember when trying the game, Tails was more like there for " an aesthetic purpose". I kinda thought he could save you once per level (or a few times at least) from falling into a bottomless pit. But no. And people often mentioned Tails got killed all the time when following Sonic (but hey, no AI is perfect) 🙂 You could play only as Sonic, or add Tails in co-op. But for the main game, he was "basically useless". Maybe you can play as Tails in some newest port, I dunno. So, why adding co-op? Platformers were always single-player game, so wouldn't this be seen as straying from the established formula? Well, at least during that time I doubt it was a regular feature. Do you have anything specific that "goes against everything already established" on mind? All I can think of now are wisps (only because people hate them for being wisps). The boost wisp is in my opinion quite handy and better. The original boost was to get rings = boost. So as long you got rings, you could boost, so even though the whole level. but with Wisp, you can't use rings to refill it. So getting the next wisp capsule is important if you want to boost. It may require better timing. The other thing about boost is... you can ignore it. If you hate it, just don't boost. The game will remain the same, or not? And I think Wispons are in Forces because normal weapons + Sonic is hated by fans. So, they changed the concept a bit. For me, wisps are quite handy in the game. They are a way to discover a new pathway. You can pick the one you like the most or that will help you to get the Red Star Ring 😉 Sorry, if I sound absurd or aggressive, but when you hear fans going "BURN IT" and "TSR is bad!" before the release, I can't help but be "absurd" and nitpicking too ^_^; Well, but that goes against the premise and plot - in the first game where we had only Sonic and Eggman and everybody was fine with it. Because, nobody else existed, so nobody complained there aren't more hedgehogs to play with. Now we have wide cast and fans go... Fans: We want more playable characters! Not just Sonic! Comes Heroes. Fans: So bad! We want to play as Sonic only! Unleashed... Fans: So bad! Are you stupid! The planet has gotten shattered and no Knuckles or Shadow in sight?! Not even Silver to complain to Sonic he again made a bad future? I think you get the picture of how it goes in this fandom... It's really sad 😞 But hey, if the first movie does well, it means a chance to see the rest or part of the cast in CGI, not just 3D models for the game. Take Sonic X Season 3. If it wasn't for the support from fans, it would never exist. For me, season 3 was the better part of the anime. I also liked the game adaptations, but season 3 had a more complex story, and I liked that. Some original episodes were fine too, I liked the humor and puns 🙂
  14. Tell me about it! I got into Sonic late in the game. Like 5 years ago, I guess. One user under my Positive Sonic Movie post said Modern Sonic was hated after introduction. I asked why, and green eyes and a different shade of blue was the answer. I find it very puzzling. Why do you mean "A LOT" - Taller, blue arms, different shade of blue (perhaps?), a scarf that is barely visible (it can work in place of fluff people like on Shadow and Silver), and some sports tape - seems like cosmetic changes. In all honesty, when people complained about blue arms, I had to check Modern Sonic to see if he had them or not XD Many people find this Movie Design cute, fluffy, and charming (we talk on Tumblr about it and have nice headcanons). The style itself is solid, may just use some cosmetic changes (bigger eyes, iris shape). It's funny how people seeing the pre-screening liked the movie in 7/10 cases and mentioned how Sonic looked different but similar too. If this feedback was positive, why would they consider changing the design to mirror games? Well, I hope it won't end up with 110% Games Rip-off. I mean, it's nice and all. But 100% Game Sonic in real-life would look too off. And you know what... Even if it would be the case, I would still go watching it. To see with my own two eyes! To create my own opinion after seeing the movie in action. I wouldn't go bashing their decision! I wouldn't go downvoting their hard work. I wouldn't go attacking people who want to watch it. Unfortunately, the last point is what people hating this design just do. I saw it, and it's sad. Also, this is worth the note. I deleted the name to be on the safe side. But this person is right. The 100% game design was "proven to look off" by the fans themselves 😉 I
