How many people out there plan to watch the upcoming Sonic the Hedgehog movie when it is released in theaters? Does everyone out there think that this will be a hit or a flop?

I was never into Sonic growing up, so I have no real desire to see the movie... that said, if it's suitable for my 8 year old, I may end up taking him to see it.

Every mention of it I have seen so far has been scathingly negative.

It seems that it has been a "love to hate" piece of media for every childhood fan of Sonic since its very first promotional images.

But I guess the studio is committed at this point. laughshake

Its obvious from just one look at it that the design/look of sonic is absolute crap.
2nd rate fur/hair
human mouth
nose that i'm sure will look like a wet rock
eyes that try to take from a million styles and ends up not hitting anything reasonable. This is a big one as eyes are a huge factor for humans to read faces.
no legibility to anatomy
hands are lanky and creepy
very thin limbs but massive feet and head
"real" socks and shoes

I haven't heard the best things about it, even from Sonic fans. I think Sonic is cool, but I wasn't a SEGA kid back in the day, so I have had very limited interaction with the character. I do think Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed is a fantastic kart racer though! It was better than anything Nintendo put out until Mario Kart 8 on the Switch.

Probably on TV at some point. I liked Jim Carrey in this, first he looks like this:



And I didn't instantly get who he was supposed to be.

But then at the end they show us this:

Honestly, I think this will probably be a perfectly serviceable child-oriented film, with an unnecessarily ugly protagonist. Will the ugliness of Sonic be enough to make kids not give a crap? Stay tuned to find out.

This was mentioned in a podcast I was listening to yesterday - apparently lots of people on social media have made their own changes to sonic that pretty much all look better.

Meh, I might stream it in a few years when it gets cheap. It's really creepy how they made sonic look like a toddler with blue fur. Other than that it looks above average *for a video game adaptation.*

Just learned that the person who played Jean Ralphio in Parks and Rec is also the voice of Sonic and that's appropriate since he is

From an artistic perspective, this sets a terrible precedent.

still, the biggest problem with a live-action Sonic movie is that it exists at all. Who greenlit this?

Really. Who decided a movie about Sonic the Hedgehog is a good idea?

It's only logical after the HUGE success that was Super Mario Bros.

Honestly - I think it can be just as fun as a pokemon or other kids property movie could be. There's potential in there. I think it's a good financial decision too, since sonic has been making kind of a comeback. I mean, if you consider one well-received game a comeback. But regardless. It could have been good. But it probably won't be.

There's also Sonic Boom on Netflix, which is pretty amusing. My son watches it, and I've seen a few episodes with him. It's not bad.

My boys sometimes watch this. It can be quite funny.
