Blaming the haters already and coming up with a hypothetical situation where the trailer gets review bombed immediately definitely seems like it’s being done just to vindicate people’s own hype and feel secure in their view of the films potential to be honest. That way, if a majority of people dislike it, people can just go “yeah, those people are just blind haters, the film looks fine ”

Reminds me of the reaction to Ghostbusters Answer the Call. If you didn’t like the trailer, which was at the time (still is I think??) the most disliked video on YouTube, then you MUST be a sexist hater! You MUST hate women! Yeah, just because it was an all-female Ghostbusters cast, not a fucking awful looking movie with terrible SNL-style humour and way too much CGI. Oh, and guess what? It wasn’t a very good movie and it disappointed at the box office, so much so that they’re making an actual successor to the original two Ghostbuster movies, not a sequel to the reboot!  

Anyway if we are going to get the trailer for the Sonic movie in a week or so...for real, then I’m anxiously waiting for it. I doubt it will change my mind though about the quality they’re aiming for and God forbid I’m called a “hater” for not liking the tone, humour, Sonic’s ugly design etc.

How can one be called a "hater" when it's as clear as translucent glass that you simply "dislike" everything currently known about the movie and what it stands for?

Saying you dislike something is pretty much the same as saying you hate it.

Hate means you have a STRONG or INTENSE dislike of something. I doubt everyone on here who is saying they dislike the concept or description of the movie are saying that they outright hate the movie.

Just wanted to let everyone know, don't expect a Sonic trailer this week. According to trailertrack, Paramount is scheduled to debut a trailer for a thriller film called 'Crawl' instead in the next day or two. 

Hopefully we'll get a new poster for the Sonic Movie though. Or an exclusive look at Eggman. 

May 7th guys. That's gotta be the day.

I still hope we get something next week... maybe a full reveal?

You can dislike something without hating it. Boiling down viewpoints to seething hatred or complete love is not only silly, but not even close to how things actually work.

So is the opposite true as well? Is liking the same as loving?

You know, if the "haters" didn't offer well constructed arguments to why they don't like the movie's direction I could understand yours and Myst's frustration, but that's not the case. You guys on the other hand have nothing to argue back aside from "I've been waiting for this for years, don't ruin this for me" or "It's Sonic, we need to support our franchise".

Unless you actually have a counter argument, maybe leave the thread for a while if people's opinions bother you so much.

You know I said back in February that the "negative people vs. positive people" argument is stupid because we all have separate objective opinions? This whole "haters vs. nonhaters" is literally just the exact same thing in another form.

I apologize if I offended you with the haters comment. Honestly I wasn't even referring to just this site, but rather the internet as a whole. Twitter, Reddit, Instagram, etc.

The Sonic Movie has recieved a lot of negative backlash on all kinds of websites and I'm sure there's some people out there who'd very proudly call themselves haters of this movie because they are so passionate about the character and don't want to see what they percieve to be the butchering of a childhood icon.

I do personally believe some of the hate is a tad hyperbolic though, and I'm sure there are probably some individuals who are merely jumping on the hate bandwagon because it's the trendy thing to do.

As I stated before, I'm not 100% onboard with certain elements of this film, (heck I might even join the critics if the trailer disappoints) I just want everyone to keep an open mind and give this thing a chance.

Sorry.

People don't generally self identify as "haters," for the same reason as people don't consider themselves "villains." Not that being a "hater" is as bad or dangerous as a "villain," of course.

Not directing this at you or anyone in particular, but I guess the only point I'd like to make is that it's not a good idea to boil down people's opinions to "they just want to hate something/do bad things." Because yeah, those people exist, but they are the minority. The majority is a lot of people who are upset for many reasons and just might not know how to express themselves in a mature way.

Agreed. I think boiling this down to a "Haters vs. Nonhaters" type of thing is silly, because we're all working off the exact same information, and I can't blame anyone for being skeptical about a Sonic...well, anything, really, with how much of a roller-coaster of quality this franchise is. Especially when the writers only have stoner and boner comedies to their names, that doesn't really inspire confidence either.

Sure, some people out there probably do blindly hate it. But of all the negativity surrounding the Sonic movie I've seen? Most of it is entirely justified.

The term “haters” seems like little more than a petty insult employed by people who seem to oppose standards on principle, as if merely exercising their right to say almost anything attains them the same venerability as that right.  As Winston Churchill pointed out, though, one person’s right to say something does not prevent other people’s right to say something negative in response.  Naturally, this isn’t a true issue of free speech and calling your detractors haters isn’t the same as wanting to silence them, but it does seem to imply that celebrities feel an obnoxious, egotistical sense of entitlement feel about themselves vs the rest of society.  Little do most seem to understand that it’s usually society giving them the privilege of being rich and famous, and society can take it away, too.

Okay, This here is a valid argument. I hope Patrick Casey & Josh Miller can bring us something special, but their resume doesn't spark a whole lot of confidence in me either. 

And giving Sonic white hands is possibly the stupidest idea i've ever heard of. Is a simple pair of gloves too much of a stretch for a TALKING BLUE HEDGEHOG FROM ANOTHER PLANET? Let's just be greatful Sonic isn't barefoot with red fur on his feet. 

That said, I like what i'm hearing from the trailer descriptions. The scene of Sonic dodging missles from a flying drone and spindashing a friggin' tank to pieces sounds EPIC.

I think that sounds boringly overpowered; something the boost games have made me feel does not suit Sonic well.

Speaking objectively here, that scenario pretty much sounds like typical Sonic The Hedgehog fare.

It is...the bare minimum of what should be expected from a basic action scene. No one said Sonic can't run on the moon, him destroying a tank is baby Sonic 1 level stuff.

Not at all.  There's nothing that can really be described as akin to a tank in Sonic 1.  There are robots that are smaller and lighter, and bosses that might be more like a tank, but they take multiple hits to defeat; Sonic can't just go right through them.

Edit: And that reminds me of an important point.  I don't want Sonic to go up against generic military equipment.  I want the iconic Badniks.  I can concede that too many characters from the games would make the movie a confusing starting point, but they have no excuse not to use more of the game's robots.

Guys! I think we are getting a trailer this week. Detective Pikachu has its official premier (not a typical early screening like what it's gotten recently) on May 3rd. We might even get it that exact day.

Oh yes, I can definitely imagine the 2006 mechs getting into this film as they match up perfectly with the realistic tone their going for.

You know, Blur Studio worked on Shadow and 06 right? Two of the most hated games in the franchise right? So is it really a surprise if you stop and think about it that we are getting humans, alien origin stories, military conspiracies, and lack of really any of the things that people come to Sonic for? Really, it finally hit me how they can be fans of Sonic and make choices I don't like. It honestly kind of sucks to have that type of epiphany now of all times, but suddenly a lot of what I see going on with this film makes a lot more sense. Boy though, in a way it really does make it that much worse for me...

... On the bright side though 06 had a few really awesome cutscenes so pretty good chance that the action will indeed be top notch. A real shame about everything else putting me off though.
