  1. Am I the only one who feels like while it's good on a design level, it's really overanimated to the point of distraction?

      Yeah, impressive but overdone. Too much animation and a total aesthetic clash. I honestly wouldn't even like a fully animated movie/show to look anything like that.

      Agreed. He uses Roger Rabbit as an example, but I feel like it doesn't fit. Roger didn't feel as overanimated, but on top of that, the moments he does have a cartoonish animation, it's used as a source of comedy. In the above clip, literally nearly everything Sonic does has to have some stupid sound effect or overanimation. The 9 million steps part is especially frustrating to me, it looks fine, but it just has a sound effect added for no reason. It feels like overcompensation to me IMO.

      Not watching the video coz last I heard the guy who made it is a douche, but honestly Roger Rabbit is never going to work as an example of how 2D characters in live action can work because the entire point of that movie was hanging a lampshade on the fact that they were cartoon characters.

       

      I mean, obviously under that context it absolutely does work because Roger Rabbit is an incredible film, but not without that context.

      It's clear that Max's bias here is rooted deep into the Ren and Stimpy cartoon style, and in this case likely sees AOSTH as the superior Sonic media. Which many agree that again, while good design wise, doesn't really match the intended original vision for Sonic. He's quick to dismiss those that believe Sonic is meant to be serious, when he was always design to have at least a little edge put in.

       

      Sonic is a hero that while still flawed, is a hero that many can look up to. So it doesn't feel right if his reactions are dominated only by wild takes. This is saying that to "fix" Sonic, you need to remove what makes him Sonic in the first place. 

       

      Basically, this video all over again.

      Yeah, the video itself isn't very good. A lot of it is basically a Chris Chan joke and your usual Sonic fanbase nonsense.

      Felt the same way when I watched it. A damn good bit of animation work in its own right, and I do think the movie should've been embracing Sonic's clash with the real world rather than trying to make him fit in but he's taken the philosophy of "Sonic is a toon" way too far. Sonic's design takes inspiration from classic cartoons but he has never been THIS wacky, AOSTH is the closest thing and I'd argue it's way less pantomine than this is.

      The scene of Sonic in the car though I feel works really well, he's in a far more interesting pose than the CG model is, and I really like the exaggerated confident face he pulls when he says "save your planet".

      Going the Roger Rabbit way with the Sonic movie isn't actually a bad idea and would definitely stand out in modern cinema, we haven't had the 2D / live action hyrid in quite some time. Has there been any major releases since Looney Tunes Back in Action?
