    Default Sonic the Hedgehog is Coming to Visit

    So this is a bit surreal for me. A small Canadian town close by me has been transformed into a small town known as Green Hills, Montana, USA. Apparently, they are filming the new Sonic the Hedgehog movie in my back yard.


    I'll be disappointed if there isn't a 'Seg-aaaa!' in the opening credits.

    And a few pictures of the transformed town. Looks like a full day of shooting tomorrow.

    I know what you mean. I heard Sonic and Jim Carey in the same sentence and was immediately turned off. But at least he's not playing Sonic. Of course, now I have to see it because they're filming here. I'm curious if I'll recognize any landmarks or people in the movie.

    When I heard Jim Carrey as Dr Robotnik, I was sold. I will definitely be watching this movie. I grew up on Sonic and Jim Carrey, so Win-Win for me. I don't know how anyone would expect this movie to be anything but silly. I can't wait.

    This is about the only reason that I would WANT to see this movie.

    SMB movie is a cult classic. I can only imagine being bored crazy by an accurate SMB movie. Instead, we got a totally whacked out two hours of pure weirdness.

    I'm not big on these sorts of movies. Animated + real life cross overs always seem iffy at best. I had no idea who Ben Schwatrz, the actor/comedian playing Sonic, was. Checking out a few things online I'm a little more hopeful that Sonic might be portrayed well. I'm curious whether they're going to draw on the fictional 'pilot' story-line used in Sonic's development pitch, or precisely how they're going to 'explain' the existence of an animated character in a real world setting.

    Sonic just lost all his cool as soon as he spoke. I don't know why but no voice he has ever had sounds right. I just hope he has no lines in this movie! It'll be bad whatever happens I think.

    I'll no doubt still watch it mind!

    If the movie doesnt take itself cringy-seriously, and includes a healthy amount of self deprication and satire, it could be great

    From what I've seen already, I'm thinking 'Dukes of Hazard' or 'Short Circuit' story and vibe.

    In a way I think it's got serious hurdles right from the start, basically because Sonic is known for what he does, going fast and bouncing off the heads of baddies. A movie being a completely different form of media entertainment, going fast and bouncing off things doesn't transition well in itself. So Sonic is going to have to speak, hopefully with attitude and spunk. That means Sonic is changing for the movie, and with change comes increased potential for disappointment. They're going to have do something original and they're going to have to do it very well. Then again, Sonic was pretty revolutionary when he first appeared, so you never know.

    He has a voice actor, so I'm going to guess he has lines. Then again, the guy playing him seems to have some traits that might work well.

    Went down to check out the movie sets. They were doing some filming today when we were there. Got to see James Marsden (Cyclops from X-Men).
