Sonic Live Action Movie Thread (Read OP for topic rules) "Trailer 2 on Page 482)

Recommended Posts

I don’t know about everyone else, but I’m getting real tired of the rumors and leaks and people just saying that they know what’s going to happen. x_x

We definitely need some official news from official sources soon, because this stuff is getting way out of hand in my opinion.

Didn’t he say he looks bad initially after seeing the trailer? Now it’s “actually looks normal in the film”?

Probably in the sense that the model looks fine in motion even though the character design itself isn't good. Which is about what I would expect tbh

Yeah, that's kiiinda what's keeping me skeptical about this whole thing. I don't really trust any rumors, positive or negative.

Even that feels like it's giving it too much credit. If something looks horrific standing still I don't know how movement is supposed to make it better.

I guess if he's constantly moving, you don't get the chance to really see how ugly he is. Almost makes me wish he was literally a "blue blur" throughout the entire movie so I didn't have to see that ugly character design.

Still not an excuse to have an ugly design tho.

DreamCastGuy stated this about the movie.

 

I actually had to agree with him on the mixed reviews. It’s not going to be a perfect movie, but it will probably be a fun movie to watch. It will probably be a bit cheesy like the Power Rangers movie, like he had mentioned.

Kinda embarrassing but I think I'd be more excited if this was just a straight up live action Sonic X movie. Why the need to introduce some random new human character when Sonic X already went that route?

Because Sonic X was dragged down by it's human characters, making it something the franchise should never do again.

 

...Funny that, it feels like this movie will do the same.

I don't think live action Chris Thorndyke would be a much bigger draw

As shocked as I am to say this, a live-action Chris might actually be a better fit for this film than Tom the cop, given he's closer to the age of the primary demographic.

Then again, I'm not sure children are this film's primary demographic, though I don't see why not.  Since it doesn't seem well-suited to pre-existing adult Sonic fans either, whom does that really leave?  Who else besides children and current fans can really be attracted by a film called Sonic The Hedgehog?

Re: Chris: I predicted that nearly 5 years ago

Anyway if they had to do live action, I think that would've been a safer route. Sonic as a meta videogame character that's trying to go home or something. It's not an especially good idea, but this should never have been a live action film to begin with, so the point's moot.

I think borrowing heavily from one of the Adventure games or Sonic X could have turned this into something passable. None of those plots would have fit into a two hour film without heavy modification but you'd at least have a basis to go with.

It's actually really strange that they're not taking the route of Sonic hanging out with a human character that's closer to the audience for the franchise now that I think about it. Chris is far from a good character but I could see what they were going for.

I'm a way bigger Sonic fan than TMNT fan, but looking at the names alone, 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' sounds a hell of a lot more exciting than 'Sonic the hedgehog'.

I wouldn't really blame anyone who never heard of Sonic before to assume it's in the same category as 'My Little Pony' just by name alone. Something about a cutesy hedgehog.
