    Sonic was a little after my time but my little brother was all about him back in the day. If his kids are interested Iíll be happy to take them.

    Hermione really wants to see it, so we might take her. She's been having a tough time lately, feeling bored at school, trouble with feeling left out of things her friends do (because we do not live close to her school), because Mom and Dad have been too tired to give her the attention she deserves. It might be a good cheer-up to surprise her with a trip to the movies to see this.

    That's good to hear at least, especially given the stigma both Sonic and Video Game movies in general get.

    So far it’s at a pretty-good-for-a-video-game-movie 65%. Almost everyone is praising Sonic himself and Jim Carrey. So it seems they nailed the two main characters, which is reassuring.

    That is the scuttlebutt, but I don't want to spoil anything.
     
    hopefully we aren't in for another round of redesigns

    I'm after going to watch it tomorrow, whilst I don't expect the greatest thing ever, the new model of Sonic makes me more excited to see it!
    Demand quality.

    Just saw it. Not flawless but definitely good enough to build on and still be fun. Will say if they get to a third movie, Sonic
     
    may have some very strong feelings to share with Knuckles.

    I will catch it when it comes out on streaming. My brother was really looking forward to this movie, so I feel like I have to watch it for him <3

    Although my feet were planted in Mario's lawn, I loved Sonic just as much growing up... especially the masterpiece that is Sonic the Hedgehog 2!

    I'm actually pretty excited to see this!

    And, Illumination is working on a Mario Bros. movie as well... could this rekindle the rivalry?

    That might be fun. Something else to go along with their Olympic rivalry.

    Whoa, Sonic is now expected to exceed 60 million over the weekend. Very unexpected. I think we can expect at least one sequel. Hoping for more characters.

    There's already some positing online about how Shadow could enter the series, but I'm hoping they save him for a third movie. They already have enough lore to unpack.

    My daughter and I are going Monday. She likes Sonic (she knows him from one of the Genesis compilation games and from Smash Bros. Ultimate) and is pretty excited about this. I'm getting quite excited about it, too. Seems like it should be quite fun.
    I serve up lots of hot, fresh action figure reviews on Action Figure Barbecue!

    By the end of Monday, Sonic is expected to have made 68 million. Some are even predicting 70 million. I think re-designing the character was a wise move, even though aesthetically and thematically his first design made more sense. I think they could have blended the two together to be honest, but I understand why they went the other way.

    The irony above all of this Sega Sonic hype is.

     
    The Movie is a lot better than the recent main Sonic games.

    Playing a three-hour Rush show is like running a marathon while solving equations.

    I think that's part of the reason everyone is so shocked. Now Sega just needs to not go nuts, like trying to release a movie accurate reboot of Sonic 1.

    Other than Sonic Adventure they didn't have the same momentum anymore, other than Colors, Generations, and Mania. Forces wasn't exciting or ground breaking, not even anything positive about it. They only care for the name but left the quality out of the game.

    Took my 5 year old son to this movie on Friday. He enjoyed it a lot and I was pleasantly surprised as well. I would actually watch it again when it's available for streaming. Definitely with a doubt, there is a sequel coming.

    Funny thing about Jim Carrey's role of Dr. Robotnik is that he differs largely from his video game counterpart
