Blogging live to you and yours! It’s your boy TWOTALL4UFOOL! Spoiler alert! My next few blog posts will be Sonic related. And if you are a movie goer you should know why. Yes the movie Sonic The Hedgehog will be making it’s way to theaters this weekend. And it’s been surrounded by a whole lot of controversy. Let me tell you. If they were to put this movie out ten years ago it probably would’ve been one of the worse movies ever made. But since the producers listened to the fans they saved themselves. See social media can be used for good….. sometimes. LOL! But in this case the people over at Paramount Pictures did the right thing.
Now I don’t want to get into a history lesson but video games going to the big screen hasn’t gone very well. With the exception of the Resident Evil series, the Tomb Raider series and the Mortal Kombat series what video game movie has been a success? Maybe they’ve made a lot of money worldwide at the box office but look at Rotten Tomatoes or their Metacritic scores. Let’s go through some of these films for a moment. Was Doom really a good movie? Need For Speed. With all the other racing/car movies that have come out I think they were a bit late to the big screen. House of The Dead is much better to watch at the arcade as opposed to the movie theater. Street Fighter. God awful movie. Double Dragon wasn’t much better. And to cap it all off Super Mario Bros.. As a Mario fan it pains me to say it but that has to be one of the worse movies ever made.
Now when I saw the original poster for the Sonic movie it didn’t look good. Even though you couldn’t see him fully once you did see him you know there was going to be some criticism. Fast forward to that original trailer. We all know it broke the internet. Forget just some criticism there was a lot of criticism. People were complaining that it wasn’t Sonic. And it wasn’t. It was very bad. This movie had disaster written all over it. And it seemed like the producers were really trying to make another Super Mario Bros. film. Have people not learned? Luckily Paramount Pictures did the right thing and said they are going to redesign Sonic. And make him look the right way. They had to push the movie back because of it. But in the end they saved themselves from putting out one of the worst films ever.
Now the redesign may not be to everyone’s liking but it’s a helluva lot better than what they were going to do originally. Now I really wasn’t planning on seeing this film when it was first announced but since the producers listened to the fans I feel a bit obligated to see this film. It’s not everyday where you see film producers take advice and listen to the fans. So kudos to Paramount Pictures for doing the right thing. I’ll check the movie out sometime this weekend. I’m not going to write a review about it on the blog here but I’ll give some thoughts about it on Twitter. So if you don’t follow me on there you really need to do so.
So do you plan on watching Sonic The Hedgehog. If so are you excited? If not? Explain why not. Leave comments below and I’ll respond. Until next time. Blogging live to you and yours!
