Hopefully when the movie has 80-100 reviews it would finalize if it remains fresh or if more critics give it so many bad reviews it goes to rotten in the 50s.

Wait, what were the avatar poll results? Is that being kept as a surprise? I can't find it.

Thanks, I forgot about the threadmark functionality.

The RT is going to bounce around a lot until we hit 100 reviews since a single positive/negative one is going to change the percent. When we get to 100 we should see the RT stabilize.
It would need to stay fresh before 100 reviews(and it's going to barely hang on if at all), otherwise it could go in a different direction.

I'd be surprised if it doesn't maintain a fresh rating given that the RT is pretty much in line with the average disparity with the critic score, which hasn't moved that much.

Sonic the Hedgehog is one of the best reviewed video game movies of all time and my brain doesn’t know how to process that information. I am so excited to see this for myself.

Yeah, that's true. Problem is that they can lower that average rating with more bad reviews which would affect the percentage later on. We'll see though.

With the negative impressions after the reveal, and the shit show surrounding the redesign- and it being based on a video game in general - this seemed like one of those opportunities for critics to be hyperbolic dickheads competing see who could come up with the worst Sonic pun. I'm stunned, to be honest lmao

Silent Hill is probably the "best" though MK is likely the most "enjoyable." The camp can be fun and there's obviously a lot of nostalgia around it.

Like, I legitimately enjoy the Super Mario Bros. movie mainly because I loved it as a kid but it's clearly terrible. Haha.
I agree completely. Silent hill is the closest to "good movie", but MK has good production values and the camp levels are off the charts. Resident evil is just horrendous. I loved it when I was a kid, but holy hell is it bad.

I know right? What the hell is going on?
The Sonic series as a whole lends itself well to solid storytelling and strong characters. The games were founded on Sonic's ability as a charming mascot before its game design, so characters and worlds have always come first for the series.

I'm really hoping this movie gives the series a bit of a cultural boost. It would be nice to see some better quality games from SEGA too, haha.
