The Sonic movie might actually be good?

I think I'll go see this tomorrow. I already spent money seeing Birds of Prey. This is actually getting positive buzz, so it's not a terrible way to spend my $6. If it's good, all the better.

I don't expect it to be amazing but hope it's at least enjoyable in a silly way.

If you were one of the ones complaining about Sonic's design then please do show support to the directors that actually listened.

It's projected to have a bigger Box office opening weekend then Birds of Prey.

Even from the trailers it seemed like a fun afternoon chill with the kids kinda film

I still have no idea why they're making a Sonic film in 2020, it's at least 15 years too late but hey I'll give it a watch as a Sonic and Jim Carrey fan

I think you kinda underestimate the fact that no matter the generation, there's something about Sonic that still appeals to kids and has for a couple decades now. You expose a 5 year old to one of the Sonic cartoons, and they still have a good time I think.

I'm happy for them.

Personally i'm a little tired of CGI character in a real world, with the classic scream scene when he first got seen, we've seen that in like dozens of movies already: Ted, Despicable me,...

Meh and forgettable is my prediction.
Probably a fun film for little kids though. Which, of course, is its target audiance. So I can't really shit on it too much.

Haven't seen anything that makes me want to see it, so it's still a pass from me.

I'm sure it's decent and has a couple of good Jim Carrey gags.

In a post Detective Pikachu world, this is not even close to true anymore.
This post just reminded me that Detective Pikachu existed.
Can anyone else chime in on whether it's actually good? The fact that word-of-mouth dropped like a fucking rock tells me it might not be.

Yeah, I don't expect to be a hit either. But I hope I can enjoy it and have some laughts at least.

But I wouldn't put my faith on youtubers or even IGN for that matter. I rather listen to real movie critics.

It's aimed mostly at kids.

So if you have the same sense of humour as a kid, then I guess you could find it entertaining. More power to you.

Some reviwers are talking nonsense to hate inexistent issues, like "the sonic friend isn't funny as Jim Carrey"...And lot more bs.

I read from some trustworthy pages that the movie is fun to watch and has a cliffhanger to a sequel!

For the longest time people have been complaining that no one listens to the fandoms and when a company finally does we get replies like what's posted above. I already have tickets for my gf, six kids and I. Haters gonna hate.

These dudes are usually pretty brutal when something is objectively bad.

Was actually surprised they liked it.

I kind of wish they would've just made a Sonic movie with the visuals of the Sonic Unleashed Opening. It looks incredibly good for no reason considering the quality of this game. (Personally I think half this game is good, the Sonic day time stages, everything else is garbo)

From its announcement I assumed we'd be in for a farely standard "CGI character surrounded by real humans" kids movie and that's pretty much what it's shaken out to.

If you haven't seen "Night of the Werehog", check it out. It's a little over ten minutes long and it's honestly got some of the best CG animation I've ever seen.
