  1. Hi again, Sonic Stadium.


  2. Okay okay. You make your point loud and clear. But for now, I'm just reanimating over the dude. Maybe you'd like this one better~
  3. I know it's not as finished as the other reanimated video that was put out this week (but honestly, I think we can all agree that Hotdiggetydemon is kind of... Seth McFarlane-y), but I thought I'd like to share with you all. Just here to be a little more positive.
  4. Just came in to see how you all enjoyed tha- Oh. Character personality debating. Huh. And here I just thought that was a nice little light from all the doom and gloom the fanbase has been under because of the movie. Live and learn, I guess.
  5. Hey, it beats having the same argument about how the filmmakers missed the point of Sonic for the umpteenth time. I mean no, this product likely won't have love and passion going into it knowing most of the film industry. But also that doesn't out rule that. I mean, this wouldn't be the first videogame movie where the team was really into it and wanted it to do really well if Duncan Jones' Warcraft has anything to say. Some people can be really excited to work on a product for a franchise they've possibly loved since they were kids. I'm only saying. I mean, I expect this to be average. I've been here to see all of the Transformers movies and Turtles movies. Yeah, a good lot of them are average. But it shouldn't discredit that things in films have changed drastically in this decade of film alone. I don't know what to expect here because while there'd be ideas of what it could be like, those things have possibly evolved some. I'm more just wondering how bad this could be or if it could shock us all and dare to be good instead. I mean, I certainly never expected The Lego Movie to be good and that spawned a series of mostly strong films. You never know. But also know that maybe we should all be a bit less at each other's throats seeing that be kind of a thing. Things have been admittedly overwhelmingly hostile at points and I'm frankly scared about how seriously some people are taking this. Also, it really doesn't help to egg people on either.
  6. I'm not really sure if most people completely miss the point of Sonic entirely? I mean the series is about a blue hedgehog that can use his abilities to pinball and go really fast and really loves freedom and fights an egg shaped scientist who builds robots and doesn't really care about people's autonomy all that much. It's a really simple concept and to be honest, I don't see how they've misrepresented that in this movie just yet? To be fair, him teaming up with a cop sounds... weird, but okay. Maybe this is a deconstruction of buddy cop movies, maybe. I don't know. That's just a weird idea I'm throwing out. We don't really have a strong plot synopsis and it could even be out of date. And even then, the U.S. government working to catch Sonic sounds like Robotnik pulled strings which sounds perfectly in character. Especially these days. Because guess what, media isn't created in a vacuum and the culture of a thing created in a time will reflect that mindset of that time regardless of if it was a passion project or very clearly a product made to be hip with the kids. I'm not saying let's not be down on the capitalist thing this is but damn. We can be patient to see if this thing deserves half the shit it's getting, right?
  7. With how hard they're going about teasing you'd think they were marketing the first Tim Burton Batman movie. I mean, there's nothing but controversy around this thing with fans not knowing anything of what to expect from this thing, you have an odd development cycle where this thing has been anticipated for years, and the casting is even getting people scratching their heads to even worrying that politics is going to be in their Sonic movie. That last one I'd like to not talk about as a political artist who sees the politics in a lot of things and I'm kind of rolling my eyes at people who are worried that Carrey will probably play Robotnik up to be a manchild fascist. Anyways. I really don't think anyone is giving this thing a chance as someone who's had personal experience with this. I mean heck, I'd even argue you all gave Richard Kuta more of a chance than this movie now because at least we presented a lot of what went into that. They're going to keep this secret until it's time to reveal. But at the moment, it's a bit too early to even be writing the thing off. Maybe I'm still mad also about how nerd culture decided to react to Ghostbusters 2016 and I don't want to see that same level of controversy with this film. Can we let this film have fun, please?
  8. Also note that both Turtles and Transformers as film franchises have been shifting gears pretty hard. Out of the Shadows relied a lot on doing a lot of the familiar Turtles stuff to having Shredder working with Krang and Bebop and Rocksteady being their henchmen. They even went as far to redesign the Turtles to be more green and toyetic and while it was still dumb and immature and mindbogglingly silly it felt like a Turtles movie and I had a lot more fun than I did the original. And there's Bumblebee which is a huge change over the Bay Transformers films to being a genuinely great live action Transformers movie. See, if they made this movie a decade ago I'd be scared shitless. As it stands right now, the company has had to learn a lot of hard lessons about what makes an actually good IP movie of this kind. If it's anything like Out of the Shadows, Alita: Battle Angel, or hell Speed Racer? Then it's going to be fine. I'm genuinely thinking you all are making too much of a fuss over this. I get it. You're worried. But is this worth belittling people over or accusing people of being paid to say things when they probably just understand how this industry works? It's going to be okay and even if it sucks, then fine. Just means another chance at a good Sonic movie can be a few years off. I've played the waiting game a long time of seeing when people would get several favourite series of mine right. I think maybe, we should all breathe. Hahahahahahaahhaahaha~
  9. That is surprisingly sentimental and yes. I mean, that's a good parallel too. It's like I tell people that comic books, manga, and videogames are culturally similar. Fwiw, the 90s may as well be the Gold or Silver Age of Gaming and games tell stories and/or entertain. Sometimes it's going to have a story that you think about. But I think we're getting a little too esoteric with that talk now.
  10. Okay. Mind you, I've probably watched more film recently that was more about making you think a lot about what's going on onscreen. Wasn't meaning to make fan fiction or anything, even if I think the fan fiction surrounding Forces did a better job than the game itself did. I mean, this isn't Annihilation or the GitS series where Wild Mass Guessing is the norm.
  11. Admittedly, when a story goes like this it's kind of hard not to fill in the blanks and think that one thing leads to another. I mean, think about it. Why is a Mobian working with Eggman in Forces? Yes, we know it's because of his angsty arse getting kicked by Shadow. Not what I'm talking about though. There's a Sonic World where it was normal to be loyal to the Eggman. Or to join his side because the person's world view is destructive nihilism and he just wants to watch the world burn. I mean that fits Infinite's edgy outlook on life. So what did Eggman do to those he crushed? The cities which he conquered? Where did all those people go? What happened to them? There's a point in what @Conquering Storm’s Servant says. Our minds link events together. What happens when a fascist wages a war on most of the continent you live on and conquers 99.9% of it? He clearly had them jailed and as we know by now, slavery is technically legal through the prison system. It's dark. Don't get me wrong, it's dark as hell. But surely these things happened in the context of the story. The Doctor's authoritarianism took a turn to fascism and here's Sonic and the gang fighting a war against him. Doesn't matter if it's a cartoon. If your cartoon is portraying war, it's probably also portraying the ugly side of it or hiding it with the facade of being a kid's videogame or show.
  12. Admittedly though, it has been a franchise that talks about the loss of self and being free to be yourself in the face of powerful industry giants like a Robotnik? I mean, putting animals in robots is pretty much making a human a robot to a guy like Sonic. He's not human. He's animal. Of course he'd have a problem with that like how humans have a problem with people being turned into robots.
  13. Oh yeah, Penders straight appropriating that poem is tactless garbage. And yeah I do happen to agree. Listen guys. Sonic Forces was World War Sonic. It was hamfisted and dumb and nowhere near like a realistic world war. Not even going to argue that I want it to be like that. But also, if I've been paying attention to my pop culture of the last decade right, Steven Universe tackled PTSD and War Flashbacks in a cartoon aimed at the TV-PG audience. Hell, that show helped me out through depression to having lived with a family an awful lot like that. Sega very well could have easily done a huge talk on Robotnik's flavour of fascism and why it was actually horrific. They flirted with the idea of Tails having PTSD and an abandonment complex because he thought Sonic was dead. His own brother. It's a little serious in odd places for something with a blue cartoon hedgehog in it.
  14. Holy heck, Mighty and Ray toys, whaaaaaaaat.
