"you posted 1,163 times"

omg, it's "Green Hill", not "Hills"

jesus fuck, did these people even PLAY a sonic game

this is clearly the most inaccurate thing to the game the movie has gotten wrong & the trailer clearly won't prove me wrong

"760 mph"

what the actual hell, in Sonic Unleashed, he can clock in at 2,887 mph

could this movie not have the budget to let sonic be rendered in the hedgehog engine

okay the rings replacing the stars in the paramount logo got a laugh out of me.

WHY IS GANGSTA'S PARADISE PLAYING

Because Sonic is a Part 5 stand.

WHY DOES EGGMAN HAVE HAIR

WHY ARE THEY TAKING LESSONS FROM THE SMB MOVIE IN GETTING THINGS WRONG

Also you have a scene involving the army but don't reference G.U.N.?! Yup, these people probably never even heard of Sonic & just did a quick Wiki reading.

Wait, why does Eggman have a human minion? Is that suppose to be Snively from the Sat AM show/comic series?

DID SONIC THROW A RING THAT TELEPORTS PEOPLE?! WHAT.

so now sonic has the world....not how speed works....

oh so right at the end, NOW they realize "oh shit, maybe we should reference SOMETHING from the game" with.........realistic Mushroom Hill Zone? & i was right, eggman being bald is gonna be sonic's fault & that's canon now because we needed that lore lesson.

2/5 not that great of a trailer.

So I finally watched the Sonic trailer and my first thought was "Why Gangsta's Paradise?"

It's like they know they got a dumpster fire on their hands, so they're trying to make the marketing of the movie really memey.

if detective pikachu was the sonic mania that actually had effort & pleased its fans, then sonic is gonna be sonic forces

Look at it this way; we're talking about Sonic. That's an accomplishment in itself.

I thought we were past the era of movies about taking cartoon characters & having part of the plot be "oh noes, they traveled to OUR world & guess what the movie's gonna be about this boring human character who has nothing to do with the show"

We will literally never get past that.

"So we have this franchise known for having really creative worlds & places unlike anywhere on Earth, where should it take place"

"new york, chicago, some big, populated city like those"

"but...those aren't unique or magical"

"WHO CARES, IT ALLOWS FOR TONS OF PRODUCT PLACEMENT"

It says something that one of the best examples of that kind of story is My Little Pony: Equestria Girls.

There's a halfway decent 3d Sonic game in Sonic Unleashed.

Shame the Werehog part is just awful.

omg the IRS sent me back the $600+ they took from me because they didn't see I already paid my tax fee, thank god.

Seriously. Rooftop Run & Windmill Isle are two amazing stages that show great potential, but then the Werehog segments just draaaggggg. Honestly, if they were made much shorter, I feel like it would've been more tolerated. At least it was the one time Sonic Team finally realized to keep a good idea & apply it for another game, i.e. Sonic Generations & parts of Colors.

New thread!
Sometime soon, I am going to watch last week's Toonami that I missed since I had a long day Saturday with watching Endgame and being out and about with family.

I hate to admit it, but if I'm still working at the theater by the time this comes out, I might just go to the employee screening just to see how bad it is. Not like I was paying to see it either way.

Catching up on The Promised Neverland and I'm just sitting here waiting for Sister Krona to start talking into a frog.

So the doll that Krone(a) has in the anime isn't in the manga. Honestly having an imaginary confidant doesn't really work on characters whose usual behavior already borders on unhinged, it just makes it seem like they're trying to hard. Like if you removed the doll completely and just had her rant about her plans to herself I think she would work a lot better
