Ok, I made this account JUST to talk about this, because it's hard for me to hold it in anymore.

 

For the past 2 days, I've seen so much negativity about this movie, it just boggles my mind. People are even going  so far as changing the design with Photoshop.

Really guys... REALLY? I'm asking this respectfully... are you all living in the past? Wearing nostalgia goggles? I feel like some people just need to learn to accept change. A lot has been said about this fanbase being unpleasable, and to me, this has never been so obvious as right now.

Let's see what nit-picky stuff people are complaining about... Sonic's mouth... wow, really? The movie sucks because of his MOUTH? What else... "his cheek shape is wrong". WOW, for real, guys? THAT'S why the movie sucks? Oh, and the eyes. Of course, OF COURSE people would HAVE to complain about Sonic's eyes. Oh THAT's rich... never heard THAT one before. How does any of this affect the movie's story? Let's focus on the positive, rather than the negative!

 

Besides, I'm sorry to have to say this, but these are all just OPINIONS. Just because you guys dislike it, doesn't mean everybody has to! We have the right to like things you don't like, you know. Does it make people feel good, taking away something that others like?

Some young people are going to grow up, and to them, this will be THEIR Sonic. Maybe it's not made for you? Can we all just get rid of the nostalgia glasses for one second, and stop acting like the world revolves around us?

Let's break the annoying image of being a group of unpleasable whiny nitpickers. Let's just embrace this in good faith, with positivity, and look towards the future, rather than be stuck in the past!

I, for one, will certainly do so. So... WHO'S WITH ME?

Okay so here is my take on this:

Sonics look in the games is iconic pure and simple and while his character model has evolved the same basic intent is still there.

I can look at these two entirely different versions of Sonic and still recognize him:

Now yes designs evolve and can be altered but there is no way in hell you are going to call this thing sonic and get away with it.

No chance in hell mate

I feel like accepting change is a good attitude though. Also, I feel like we should all respect other's opinions.

I should probably remind you that this is a two way street you're talking about here. You entered this thread to talk trash about other people's opinions and then had the nerve to demand others respect yours when you were inevitably challenged. Don't do that. Either debate with reason and good faith or get out.

But he's still blue, still has red shoes, still runs fast... I just don't see the problem. That's just my opinion though, I respect yours.

You're a little late to the party there.

To be honest, I think I'm coming to the conclusion that Sonic isn't for me anymore. In my opinion I think its time I packed my bags and said goodbye to Sonic, because its just not for me anymore. I'm too old to just let things happen now. I've outgrown it. Its over for me. Its best if I just stopped caring about it all.

To those of you who continue to love the blue blur and want to see the best from him. Good on you. I wish I could remain in that camp.

So in the two days that you were sat there filling with rage... 

How many times did you feel your opinion was being persecuted because someone else didn't agree with you instead of saying your opinion was wrong?

Because so far all I'm getting is "We should all embrace change!" 

No we shouldn't.

If something looks like trash, it should be thrown out due to X Y and Z.

You just mindlessly agree to change because it's different. It needs to show some kind of merit or distinction at building on what's different.

And with regards to this design.

It completely sucks.

Ah, I see. So if my message said "Let's all be positive!", it's no good. But something like "Are you out of your fucking mind", no problem.

Gotcha, thanks

What makes me question if you are is how you have the audacity to come in here, insult us, insinuate that we're all just nitpicking and the design is our only problem with it, but in the same breath demand we accept it and your opinions. That's what's bothering people here. There are a few defenders and fans of the movie here. That's not the issue. How you present yourself, conversely, is.

Come on bro! Let's at least give it a chance, no? After all, we've only seen a trailer. Why should we just a movie by the trailer! I beg you! Please at least give it a chance? You never know, it may be the best VG movie ever!

Being condescending like that doesn't help either - and even you have to admit you brought that upon yourself bro.

Just start clean. Be positive if you want, but positive or negative you can't use that as a blanket shield to shut down the opposition. Most of the people on here have laid out quite a bit about why we are negative. I'll respect you're reasons for being positive - but if you're sole defense is "stop living in the past:" then its impossible to take you seriously.

They really missed out by not having any other characters in the movie besides Sonic. The friendship thing could have been between Sonic and Tails. Maybe they arrive on Earth not friends (an accident both were caught in), Tails is annoying to Sonic and the former just wants to win Sonic's approval. And then we get a great arc of them bonding over the course of the movie. Sonic realizing the value of friendship in Tails and learning how to not be a douche bag.

Let's not play the game of "keep moving the goalpost", okay?

"We haven't seen the FULL design!"

"It could look better in motion!"

"it's just one trailer!"

"Wait until the full movie comes out!"

At what point does it become acceptable to just throw in the towel and admit something sucks?

Not even for Sonic mania 2?

I think thats the thing that keeps me in, the small glimmer of hope that one day the blue blur will be great again with mere stumbles like forces and this movie aside.

That's a possibility. I guess there's always a chance, but for now I'll let the chips fall where they may. It just isn't worth my time right now. Sonic may survive after this, but I feel my opinion in the grand scheme of things mean jack shit at my age.

So as you guys know, the Sonic Movie director revealed that changes will be coming to Sonic's film design. But in order to meet the release date this is what's going to probably happen.

So basically it's going to be cramming months of work in a Way shorter amount of time. That's about the only way of meeting the release date.

 

Also, the trailer that was seen by the YouTuber DreamcastGuy (I apologize if I got the name wrong) who seen the trailer early. How many months back was that? As I'm curious.

Hey, the clamor we were a part of just fostered this change.

The next guys who jump in to make a videogame and/or cartoon adaptation are gonna remember this. Probably wont stop them from doing something stupid - but we've changed the world for the better.

Our children will thank us lol

They should've thought about that before they approved that crap. Cancel it, delay it I dont care. They just need to fix it period. And shame on Sega for letting them go this far.  :c

SEGA had no say in this.  That's the unfortunate truth.

What really boggles my mind is how Sega is super strict with Sonic on all other media, especially the comics: Sonic can't cry, Sonic can't lose, we can't see anyone's family, no romantic relationships whatsoever,  all that shit. So the million dollar question is, where the hell where they for this movie? Did the contracts demand they just fuck off?
