  1. This is a neat idea.

  2. In a dream I can see

    You are not far away

  3. This discussion about Eggman’s potential body count in different media made me realise that Archie Eggman technically has the biggest of them all: he made an entire multiverse collapse, destroying every existing reality outside of the Prime and Sol zones.

    Archie Eggman’s body count is practically infinite.

  4. If Chris Pratt is such a homophobe, why is he still being accepted to come on talk shows by openly LGBTQ people? (Graham Norton, Ellen, etc.)

    1. DanJ86


      Trouble is that they're a group of people that yell out "phobe" this or "ist" that over ever little thing that I just don't take it seriously anymore. I knew it would eventually happen and now when a genuine one does show up, nobody will believe it.

    2. Diogenes


      i don't know enough about the people involved to talk specifics, but in general that sounds a bit like a "fuck you, got mine" situation. people in a stable, respected, relatively "powerful" position are less likely to be bothered by relatively minor bigotry as long as they're respectful to them as an individual; they can pal around with assholes because they're not at risk of being hurt by them. conversely people in less stable, less powerful positions are less likely to overlook things that reinforce hatred against them because they're not insulated from shitty people.

  5. BBC4 just showed an old Eastenders episode from 2000, and I saw Mo Slater light up a cigerette inside the Vic!

    The UK was a very different place 20 years ago.

  6. inb4 tomorrows announcement is an announcement that there will be an announcement at an upcoming event somewhere.

    1. Strickerx5


      Nah, it'll be an announcement of Sonic 1 coming to smart watches.

  7. Whenever I saw people put their preferred pronouns in their profile headers on social media, I always just assumed it was because the people in question were trans and were making that known.

    Turns out it’s also something allies do to show their support. Huh.

      ...my pronouns are he/him.

    2. Polkadi~☆


      my pronouns are: figure it out, i want to see you make a fool of yourself >:3

      i've pretty clearly had mine in my profile here from jump (he/him)

  8. Wonder what the Sonic movie would have been like under Sony.

    1. TheOcelot
    2. Thigolf


      I still wanna know what Van's script would've been like. Him talking about Sonic always made it sound like his script was way more sonic-y than the pretty generic plot with some some Sonic elements sprinkled on top situation we got with the final product under Paramount.

    3. Tornado


      Incomprehensible to anyone who doesn't already follow the series.


      Probably every villain Sonic ever faced in one movie.

      Sequel would be written and in preproduction before the first movie came out.

  9. Cineworld’s free Sonic poster is tiny!

      The poster my theater was giving away was like the movie poster if it were a piece of awkward fan art.

      JK Rowling is not a TERF, ffs. 

  11. Of course I’d like a latte.

      What do you think I am, an imbecile?

    >Ben isn’t familiar with any games beyond SA1

    This bothers me more than it should.

  13. There are worse timelines we could be living in.

    Like the one where one of the first few movies in the Dreamworks Animated canon is a Penders-written Knuckles movie.

    1. Inkling Cooper

      Inkling Cooper

      What about the timeline where this was released? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DNteN_qlHp0

      That’s another possibility.

  14. I just remembered this was a thing.

  15. In honour of Storm Dennis


    1. Ellipsis-Ultima


      Bruh that's my thoughts as well

  16. So how many things has Penders boldly and incorrectly claimed to have done during his time on Sonic before anyone else now? My current count is two (bringing in more echidnas and giving Sonic parents).

    1. E-122-Psi


      Wasn't giving Sonic an evil twin one as well?

      Were Shade and the other Chronicles cast seriously unpersoned because Penders said 'You can't have more echidnas, I copyrighted your 'last of their kind' character having anymore of his kind'?

  17. Movie Sonic canonically has toes btw

    1. Diogenes
    2. Milo


      haven't seen the movie, so correct me if i'm wrong

      i don't think sonic's bare feet are shown in the movie (i think heese half-jokingly admitted this on retro when asked about it), but there are scenes in the trailer where you see sonic's footprints in the ground, which show both the prints of his shoes and his feet

    3. Big Panda

      Big Panda

      Robotnik examines Sonic’s shoeprints with his computer and they’re able to simulate what Sonic’s footprint looks like on the inside, where we clearly see a full set of toes on the screen.

      The closest we get to seeing his bare feet is halfway through where his shoes are taken off and we see holes in socks, that show that he has peach coloured soles.

  18. I keep hearing accounts of people who go to see a movie and being among an audience that audibly reacted or “went wild” over particular scenes, and... I have literally *never* seen/heard audience members do this in my experience.

    The most I’ve ever heard from fellow cinema-goers is quiet talking or odd moments of canned laughter when something funny happens.

    I’d honestly always assumed it was just a thing that only American film audiences did or something but, no, apparently British audiences acted accordingly when watching the Sonic movie (except for mine).

    1. Big Panda

      The only time I’ve seen British moviegoers do something unusual in response to a film was back when I saw the second Harry Potter movie, where the audience randomly clapped when the credits began rolling.

      They did in my cinema… and it wasn't the first day in Italy, AND my country really doesn't care about Sonic generally. During the last scene they literally screamed.

    3. Failinhearts


      People went nuts at my Endgame screening

    4. PaddyFancy


      Only when I saw The Simpsons Movie did people go nuts. The two times I saw Endgame was rather reserved, except the second time when one person was shouting quotes out before it was said in the movie, and it was really annoying.

      My Sonic movie experience was pretty much silent aside from the occasional laughter.

      Didn't help that there were probably only 15 or so there in the theater.

      In my experience, the biggest reactions in theaters were when i saw them during opening weekends. 

  19. Does anybody know if any other UK cinema chains besides Cineworld are doing promotions for the movie?

    1. Stasis


      I asked Odeon before release but they had no information at the time. Went there today, just a kids cardboard snack holder/door hanger thing. I got one, it's nice but nothing like the Jumanji cards or Sonic poster at Cineworld.


    2. Joy


      Just back from Cineworld. What promotions are they doing?

  20. Sonic movie was fun! Would recommend.

  21. What if the IDW universe is actually the Archie universe, drastically altered as a result of Starline’s experiments with the Warp Topaz?


    1. Miragnarok


      And these were originally meant to restore the old one?

  22. So do all of the toys for the movie still use the old design? ‘cos it sure looks like it.

    1. Celestia


      I think I've only seen one (maybe two) pieces of merch so far that were changed.

    2. Big Panda
  23. So we got Cristina Vee as Sally for a hypothetical SatAM reboot: who should play the other FF?

    1. Zaysho


      This is actually pretty tough since I'm not super familiar with a lot of current anime/game voice actors. I think Ben Diskin might have the comedic chops for Antoine, though I don't know how well he can do the French accent.

      I used to imagine Laura Bailey's voice when reading Nicole in the comics, so probably someone in a similar range to her like Erika Harlacher?


    I seriously thought this was real at first.
