I still can’t believe Samba de Amigo made a cameo in the intro. :P
Yeah, the first music you hear in the film being Hyper Potions’ was a nice touch.It was even better than I expected. I would definitely recommend it, especially to Sonic fans. Hell I think it's still at least decent even if you aren't into it, but there's definitely some cool references and easter eggs fans of the series would notice.
FUCKING HYPER POTIONS IN THE OPENING SEQUENCE!!! And Echidna!!! I popped off so hard in the theater
Download and have her play Sonic Dreams Collection. It will instantly taint her image of the character so it'll be easier for you both to save money!My wife actually wanted to see this for valentines day surprisingly. She loved sonic as a kid and only played the 2d games plus doesnt frequent forums etc so she never had the fanbase taint it for her.
Alas, we cant actually afford the cinema this month, but I thought it was pretty cute that her memory of the character is completely untainted.
Not nearly as obnoxious as it was in Weathering With You. There's a reference to Olive Garden, that's immediately paid off with an (unfunny) joke, but that's it.
More spoiler talk
I was quite disappointed when Sonic never went back to his own world at the end. I know the movie had built up the Sonic finds a family/friends angle so I get what they went for with him staying on Earth. But I was hoping the sequel hook would be the next movie set on Sonic's world not ours. Looks like it's just Tails coming to Earth.
I think it'll move away from Earth some in potential sequels. Tails came looking for Sonic, but most likely he never even met Sonic in the movie version given the age differences and how young Sonic was when he came to Earth. That most likely means he's come to find Sonic and bring him BACK to save his homeworld and/or Longbeak.
It's so blatant that it's almost comical.
It was in the marketing, but I mainly picked it because it's both a good pun and the guy who produced this movie was also the producer of the F&F movies.
I got a chuckle out of hearing the kids in the seats behind me feverishly chanting "Please be Tails, please be Tails, please be Tails!" when the mid-credits scene started.
My kids both loved that scene. They were a bit lower energy since it was getting late and the youngest hadn't had a nap, but they were really excited to see it.
Im with you. I feel like if this was any other cg cartoon in the real world movie like idk "Hop 2: Hop2It" and instead of Robotnik, Jim Carrey played The April Fool out to steal Easter for himself, people here would be bashing this movie for its labored movie references and product placement masquerading as jokes & complaining how torturous it was when the lead cartoon character flossed.
Right so the very start of the movie before the movie actually begins.
Yeah it showed stuff from Sonic games (Adventure and Unleashed among them). But that weren't all. In that Sega logo we had non Sonic stuff. Sega cinematic universe incoming confirmed? Discuss.
