The early effects reels aren't too promising.
 
2014-06-10 11:49:38 PM  
who?
 
2014-06-11 12:03:12 AM  
1994, because that's when the last good Sonic game came out

Oh, come on, how is that an unfetchable link?  Whatever, won't stop me.

I hope it's based on that Starbomb song.

"I'm tails the fox, you little biatch, and I'm on the attack.
My endocrine system's farkin' riddled with crack."

Eventually he kills Eggman, Sonic, and all his friends.

It's Dr. Robotnik.

Not even in 1994.

I'm hoping for a CGI/Live Action version of Sonic 2006. Nothing like creepy Hedgehog/Human Romance arcs

/And maybe a Mario movie based on the Starbomb song.

Well I hope this project doesn't take money away from that Qbert project I was waiting for all this time.

I predict Tails will drown repeatedly.
 
2014-06-11 07:19:11 AM  
Will it have the scary drowning music?

Gotta be better than the Mario movie.

Oh goody, this will get the autistics happy/angry.
Seriously, what the hell is with the freaking sonic fandom? It's like a lighthouse for autism.

I'm assuming this is about the developmental signalling protein.  That could be very cool.

Fano: Gotta be better than the Mario movie.


Shut your hole, The Super Mario Bros. movie was awesome.

Also, we already had a Sonic movie; it was pretty awesome all things considered...

CraicBaby: Will it have the scary drowning music?


I set that music as my alarm ringtone. Wakes me up instantly, because I've got to get to the phone to shut it off before that final "bwop" noise.
 
2014-06-11 09:01:19 AM  
Is it just a movie based off the animated TV show? My nieces and nephews love that show.
 
2014-06-11 09:05:17 AM  
If they don't go gonzo with their budget, it could be a good move. People who grew up watching sonic cartoons and playing the game will find it a nostalgic no-brainer to take their own kids for some "quality time." The kids will see the movie and then want to play whatever new piece of shiat "game" that comes out as a tie-in, and then the one that comes out after that too. So a father who takes 2 kids will be spending about $25 on the movie, plus $60 on the tie-in game, then another $60 on the next game until the kids get old enough to realize the games suck.

Maybe 1992 subby.

It's really interesting that the franchise has survived for so many years. People seriously complain about every single entry and cross their fingers that the next one will be better. Sad part is, the first two games weren't that great to begin with.

Sonic generations was awesome

unless they recognize the original Saturday morning Sonic series I am out. The whole Sonic X thing is just too stupid... I rate it below Sonic Underground and that cheese level weekday one with the 2 stupid robots.
 
2014-06-11 10:15:21 AM  
It's only fair that sonic get something as fundamentally farked up as "Super Mario Bros."
 
2014-06-11 10:15:24 AM  
Sonic doesn't need to talk or have friends -- the way he taps his foot and glares at you if you idle him for too long is all the personality he needs.

Which is why his place is in speed platformers, not in movie theaters.

Remember how there were two sonic cartoons?  One during the weekday and one on the weekend?  Man, the weekend one was way better.

I remember there was like a darker one that worked pretty well and then there was one that was all about lolchilidogs and had no real plot or anything.

excellent paying job, nice house, nice car, tons of connections with animation studios, musicians, actors, people with exceptional talent and intelligence, challenging opponents when playing chess, plenty of charity work to be proud of. There are more classes of furries than the one constantly mocked. ;)

Its quite nice actually.

Supermario '93, streetfigter '94, videogame movies were in a bad way at the time. Not that they've improved much, I'm looking at you uwe boll

I'm curious about which characters they'll use in the movie. As much of a trainwreck as it'd be, I'd love to see them try to do the Archie Comics thing and bring in someone from every Sonic universe (SatAm, AoStH, Sonic the Anime, Sonic Underground, Sonic X, every single game, Archie comic series, Sonic the Comic [published fortnightly!]) That'd be what, 100+ characters at this point?

The Saturday morning one was better, didn't last as long, and kept going (sort of) in the Archie comics.

It'll probably end up like this if we're lucky

TV's Vinnie:


Yeah, this is immediately what I thought. Although, Sonichu The Movie would be pretty hilarious. The whole sordid story has the makings of a black comedy.

Jeez, it was a joke about how all sonic fans turn out to be furries, but I guess it's less of a joke than I thought.

Nothing else matters.

I used to be a big fan of the cartoon and the games back in the Genesis days. I even read the comics for a bit. Now Sonic sucks, and has for a while. I guess I grew up, plus they changed everything around to a bunch of annoying anime tropes. Meh.

Or in Sonic 3D where after three minutes of waiting he's all 'Fark this' and leaves the stage.

The plot will probably take from Sonic 2006.

I would want a SATAM rehash, and I know it's not going to happen that way. They'll find a way to include as many of the newer video game characters as possible. *sigh*

sorry, I could not tell if it was a snark comment or a joke, so I tried to take a ground that was rather neutral. No harm felt. no malice intended :)

However, pretty much everybody I met in the sonic fandom ended up furries after the show ended. So your observation is quite true. The same will occur with Bronies. :)
