Movies haven’t been kind to videogames.
Sure there have been some gems in there, Resident Evil, Silent Hill, Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within (that one wasn’t popular but good film regardless). But there have been some abominations (Mario I’m looking at you). Detective Pikachu looks like a fun film so that at least gave me hopes that the video game movies curse has been broken.
Then I saw the first promo image for Sonic the Hedgehog. I waited though. I wanted to see what they would do in a trailer before I truly judged. Then the trailer came out. The bad dialogue, cliche lines, human toothed Sonic with Coolio’s Gangster’s Paradise. In 2019. There’s more to say about this trailer, but judge for yourself, hey maybe this film just isn’t for me.
Hopefully, at least this will be full of memes.
‘Sonic the Hedgehog’ releases on November 8, 2019.
