Anyone plan on seeing Sonic this month? I'm really excited for it!

I feel that I should see it
Considering I was one of the millions who complained and bullied paramount about the original sonic design

I think it looks good and fun so i am looking forward to it

I want to see it just to see how the movie Sonic turns out after all that hard work and rework on the character.

At least Jim Carrey looks like he's having a blast playing Eggman. So even if the movie is a piece of hot garbage even after Sonic's redesign, he could be the one saving grace, like how M. Bison was in the Street Fighter movie.

I saw it last night. It was awesome.

Jim Carrey turned down an offer to play Dr. Evil in Austin Powers, and I feel his portrayal of Robotnik is like it would have been if he'd played Dr. Evil (except his Robotnik is clearly a lot more competent than Dr. Evil). He also reminds me a bit of Judge Doom from Who Framed Roger Rabbit.

I've been thinking about all the posts that say fans should see the movie just because the studio listened to fans. So far it's made 55 million dollars (though the budget was 95 dollars), maybe it's success will lead to more studios listening to fans in the same way (who wants to complain that any uninteresting non-franchise Disney films are not Muppet movies so we'll get another?).

Sonic keeps dreading his need to go to a mushroom planet. I wonder if that was meant as a subtle reference/slam to Mario.

I"m dying to see it, I like how they took the rings that sonic collects in the game, and created a use for them.

I went to see this movie a couple weeks ago and I was actually quite impressed! One of my favorite bits from that movie was easily the bar fight in slow motion. Jim Carey as Doctor Eggman was great!

(I also got a lot of joy from hearing Colleen O’Shaughnessy reprise her role as Tails as someone who loves her voice over work in some of my favorite English dubs for anime like Naruto and Bleach, as well as western cartoons like Danny Phantom, even if it was brief. Hollywood life unfortunately).

Apparently next movie will really introduce Tails, and also Super Sonic, according to the movies director. They wanted Super Sonic for this one, and he was actually in early versions of the script but they wanted this to be an origin story. Tails and Super Sonic didn't come til Sonic 2 anyway
