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

Recommended Posts

Saw the movie for the second time now that my Blu-ray came in. I think I enjoyed a little more than in theaters.

Anyway couple things. I thought his rings disappeared after being used right? The bag says emergency only but in the cave scene he uses one to show Mushroom Hill. It’s obviously for the viewers but he’s still wasting it just to look through.

Also it never occurred to me he’s in a real Dr. office when he’s pretending to have a therapy session. I wonder if they cut out something that shows him sneaking into places. Kinda funny. Maybe it’s been brought up already.

I started thinking about the Mario movie too. I haven’t seen it for a very long time but imagine if there was internet back then. There definitely would have been backlash before release but how would the studio react? It didn’t use cgi and they changed a lot of things so they couldn’t simply delay it. Just interesting to think of.

I think they only disappear if something goes through them. Not sure if its shown but thats my logic for now.

Ya I think that explanation works.

I’ve seen complaints they didn’t use them to go more places but it actually makes sense they didn’t because he’d use too many. Plus he stopped because he realized Robotnik was actually keeping up with him. Also, unless I’m wrong, France, Great Wall of China and Pyramids were probably the only major earth locations he knew of.

Now I understand from the real life standpoint they probably kept things as simple as possible for the budget since it was the first movie...but the story reasons still fit very well.

In a cute nod to Sonic being an impressionable little kid, Sonic slid under a bus with a travel ad for Paris France right before he threw the ring to go there. It was literally the last thing he saw, so it makes sense it was the first place he'd think to go. 

 

I thought that was a nice touch. ^^

So can we get a new thread for the sequel now? Or do we wait for more confirmation?

Got a new thread right here!

I'm personally excited for the sequel. I was probably one of the harshest critics of the first one before it got an overhaul, and I'm happy to see them working on a new one. I hope they put their all into it.

Oh ya I forgot about that. That was a cool way to work in that choice.

I actually believe they did real world locations because of budget reasons. I heard they were trying to have more fantasy places but they cost a lot to create in CGI.

Ya I know. I just think they did a good job working around it. Plus real world locations have appeared in the games so that helped imo.

Good news! The Sonic movie will be finally released in Japan on June 26. Yuji Naka and the Sonic Japanese voice actor is happy about this. Glad to see the Japanese finally get the opportunity to watch it. Hope they like it. I'm sure they will like it.:

Translation: “The release date of Sonic the Movie in Japan has been announced. It’s in the same week as Sonic’s birthday. I’ll put the UHD version aside and wait until I watch the movie in theaters. I’m looking forward to it.”

Translation: "Finally."

Great that Japanese fans can finally see the Sonic movie on the big screen. I hope other countries like China will follow suite.

Yeah, also, I think China is the only other country that haven't got the movie yet. Let's hope they get the movie as well.

I finally got to see this. Overall I liked it, the only part where I ugged was that they kept the kidnapped child in the bag joke. With that being said something did get me...

Spoiler

Look, I'm just gonna say it; Movie Tails has a better voice than Game Tails. It's similar yes but he actually sounds like a boy instead of a girl trying to sound like a boy. Also Jim Carrey slipping into a Mike Pollock impression for a word was uncannily spot on.

Not just similar, but the exact same voice. Because it's still Colleen doing the voice.

Oh. Well why dosen't she use that voice the the games? Rhetorical question,, I know why,, it's because SEGA's Voice Directors suck.

@thumbs13

 

I thought she sounded the same in her voice, but delivered her lines a little differently. Yeah it’s likely attributed to having a different person directing her. I noticed she is also a bit different in her delivery between the Sonic games and the Boom tv series. I’m not that keen on the delivery of lines in the games tbh I wish they would get a new voice director for them.

Yikes... I mean the poster looks beautiful, but it probably would have looked more beautiful with the new sonic.  Love the Japanese posters though!
