Sonic Live Action Movie Thread (Read OP for topic rules) "Gangsters Paradise is on Page 380)

Recommended Posts

What if it was just a Sonic movie adaption? Like the essential Sonic plot, CG except for the locations, and maybe real people without all that "new" mumbo-jumbo. Do we REALLY need another Sonic X? No.

I keep looking at your signature and laughing my head off. XD

 

 

Since the locations Sonic visits are often fantastical in nature, I'm not seeing why they shouldn't just do pure CGI, especially with how beautiful Marza's work is.

As for the second part... this franchise is good at giving us things we do not need.

There is just so much that can go wrong with a live action/CGI hybrid it's best to just stick to pure CGI.

CASE IN POINT:

It's the fact there's such a poor record with live action adaptions of what are ultimately cartoony franchises, is all.

Whether it's throwing the characters into our world, poor CGI, inventing movie-only characters that take over the plot, or something else, the record is pretty clear on the matter: live action adaptions aren't a good idea.

I get what you're saying, and I agree that having live-action is a bad sign, but I still think it's too early for everyone to panic.

Really wish when they announced things like this that they actually had something tangible to show with it so people don't end up in a tizz trying to work out how it will be brought together. A few art impressions, a mock up, something more than the less than helpful generic synopsis. If they are ready to announce its happening then surely they have a small tid bit to show alongside it.

Why in the world is it too early to make a negative judgement of a movie based on the genre and producer of all things, when most people have done this with every other live-action/CGI cartoon character film that's been coming out the past decade with no backlash and surprisingly accurate results? Like, why is it wrong to be wary of a Sonic live-action/CGI film and not a Smurfs live-action/CGI film?

I at least hope they will change the producer. I can't believe they are treating the franchise so carelessly to the point where Sonic's Hollywood debut is allowed to be skewed by a mediocre producer.

In my opinion, Phil Lord and Chris Miller would have been great choices. Sure, hiring them would have cost more but the payoff would be more than worth it.

I'm sure this has probably been said several billion times before, but I don't get SEGA. But I guess Sony Pictures is partly to blame too, they probably had a say in it.

And you know, that with Sony & Sega behind this, when it's due for release, there will be adverts and promotions... everywhere.

 

You will not escape it even if you want to.

"Follow me. Set me free. Trust me and we will escape from this movie."

Congratulations. You have won my royal endorsement, my respect, and the key to the SSMB snack room. .

This doesn't mean I like you.

Nah just kidding I like you!

But speaking of merchandise for the movie....oh good lord, Hoggy has a point! Sonic is going to be plastered everywhere. Busses, bus stops, toys, awful tie in games....and at the same time, Boom might still be around. Don't SEGA know that market saturation is a legitimate issue? Too much Sonic will make everyone sick of him, maybe even the fanbase.

But what has me intrigued is the inevitable tie in game. What if, what if: What if it wasn't awful? What if it did turn out to be the Sonic game we've been waiting for? Hooo boy would that be ironic....

Did I say there was a double standard? All I said was that I'd rather wait until we get more substantial information before I give judgement. It doesn't matter what the film is about, I just don't believe that "live-action with CGI" has to equal "total box-office failure".

This has nothing to do with box-office results and everything to do the artistic quality of the film. Aside from the genre (which shouldn't be ignored), the people whose names are attached to it have really spotty resumes to boot. At best, we know the animation will be good because Marza's involved, but that's one for two. So why shouldn't people be erring on the side of caution?

Nep, mind linking us to the people who were namedropped for this? it would give him a better idea if he knows what were in for and why were soo non-postitive about this.

Also I'm kind of curious to see what else these people were involved with other then what their known best for.

That's a beautiful example.

The character looks real, so it's good CGI in that regard.

On the other hand, the character looks real, and that's what kills the film. They're cartoon characters.

We all freak out when a beloved character gets a redesign. Especially a drastic one, which realism tends to necessitate.

Boom "bandages" won't have jack on a film redesign.

 

I get what you're saying, and I agree that having live-action is a bad sign, but I still think it's too early for everyone to panic.

 

Nepenthe already answered why people are doing this. We have to assume negativity because of the track record.

Never mind they didn't show anything for it, ANYTHING, which leads me to believe that the movie looks so terrible at present not even the people behind it want to show a clip.

 

Really wish when they announced things like this that they actually had something tangible to show with it so people don't end up in a tizz trying to work out how it will be brought together. A few art impressions, a mock up, something more than the less than helpful generic synopsis. If they are ready to announce its happening then surely they have a small tid bit to show alongside it.

That's what surprises me. Sony has shown graphics the last few times they've confirmed films. This film has absolutely nothing for it besides artistic details.

I'm optimistic they'll at least have a trailer within the next few months. I'm guessing that since this is a live action/CGI film, they want to take their time to make sure it doesn't look fugly.

I think he says he's not sure what to think about the CGI/live action mix but still looks forward to it. Then he wonders whether it might be like Roger Rabbit and that something like Spiderman might be cool, too.

But my Japanese is lousy, so feel free to correct me.

For comedy I can see Eggman trying to blast Sonic and Sonic kepps moving all over the place so fast you can barely see him move while singing Can't Touch This.

The sad thing is, Indigo, that's probably exactly what the plot will be.

...actually, it will be quite exhilarating if Indigo's prophecy will turn out to be true.

Live action hybrid? Goddamit I've been waiting ever since my childhood to see Sonic on the big screen (not counting Wreck It Ralph) and they just go and kill my hopes by having it part live action.

Ugh.

Oh, wow! I can totally see that happening, too!

 

 

And it's awful!

 

 

Well he is a guy who approved Sonic 06's plot so....

Yeah - the was the last Sonic game he worked on, and the premise of that game was "what if Sonic were real?"
