That looks stupid as fuck, yet why did I have a huge smile the whole time I was watching it. Looks like fun.

It looks like a lousy video game adaptation, but coming after the charm that Detective Pikachu has pulled off in its trailers makes it even worse.

WAIT.  Is Sonic an alien?   

WAIT.  Is Sonic Doctor Strange?   

WAIT.  Why isn't Robotnik Russian?   

WAIT.  If they're gonna use that dumbass Eggman name, why isn't he fat and round like an egg?

I just hope Jim Carrey prepared for this role by hunting a blue freak hedgehog. Although I give this a ton of credit for feeling like a mid-90s garbage kids movie in 2019. Marsden's career better not be killed off, though.

So a bunch of animators and designers are going to have work crunch time to fix a problem that those in higher up should have seen coming a long time ago; all stemming from the fact that a studio completely misunderstood the expectations and desires of its own audience.

Huh, I guess the Sonic movie really is faithful to the spirit of modern video games.

There are some fan modified pictures out there that look one hundred times better than what the studio came up with

The funny thing is that Sonic has such an iconic character design and they tried to go too realistic rather than sticking with the exaggerated features (large eyes, large gloves, large ears).

Pushed back to Feb. 2020 because of the character re-design.

I take it back, this just looks stupid as fuck.

Also wasn't this movie made 33 years ago and called Howard The Duck.

Releasing tonight, this is getting slightly more positive reviews.  Almost to 100 reviews, it’s around mid-60s on Rotten Tomatoes, similar for where Detective Pikachu was last year.

$21m on Friday, estimated to make somewhere in the low to mid 60s for the 4 day weekend.

I wonder what it would have been without the redesign.

Perfectly fine movie with a bit of heart, bit of action, over the top Jim Carrey doing what he does, and enough shout outs to Sonic that it was fun. The re-design definitely helped buy Sonic as Sonic. Not much depth to the movie on the whole but there were a lot of genuine laughs from the audience I was with (adults and kids alike) and I can see why audiences like it a lot more than critics. It's the kind of movie that hits just a bit of everything to make it entertaining & memorable for kids but is more surface level for adults.

The animated end credits were cool too.

6/10
