Filmmaker promises to change live-action Sonic the Hedgehog's widely-disliked design

I’m not sure if I’d call the original kids’ book a Ladyhawke rip-off, but the movie is adapted pretty closely from it.

That’s a great book and full of jokes. Did you, um, happen to notice any of them?

Space Harrier over Altered Beast?

Jim Carrey playing a classic Jim Carrey-esque character is the only draw here at all. I can’t imagine they’ll get any other part of the movie right, but he’ll be a little bubble of entertainment all by his lonesome.

There used to be someone here who frequently posted pictures of her pet hedgehog. Princess Penelope Prickles I believe was the name (the hedgehog’s, not the human’s)

@nemomen, in the great thread: Post your Pet or animal Pics

Pricklepants

ETA: That may have come off snarkier than I intended, I just thought it was funny to be pedantically prickly about a local-celebrity hedgehog (although I am still genuinely a little raw about the othermichael extinction event…)

Correct you are. Thanks!

And Game of Thrones was likewise a live action remake of Shrek.

They need to hire furries for films like this.

When was the last time you played Altered Beast? There’s absolutely nothing to it. Space Harrier is at least deeply weird.

More accurately, they need to actually listen to the furries they’ve already hired for films like this.

I miss Pricklepants.

If that kind of thing is what you’re going for, then clearly Dig Dug is the superior choice.
Blood and guts. Blood and guts everywhere.

I mean, it wouldn’t hurt, but I don’t think you need to be a furry to know what good animated character design is.

There is a meme making fun of that badly drawn Knuckles, and this Sonic face is on par with how badly drawn it is. It’s like a Chinese knock off by someone who hasn’t really seen what Sonic normally looks like.

I don’t recall there being treasure, though.

It’s only after staring at it for over five hours that the story really starts to reveal itself.

Agreed but at least furries spend so much time dealing with the over all aesthetics of anthropomorphism they will more likely get something not looking that horrible. The Sonic they made the body looks like a guy wearing pajamas. The person that ok’ed that design had no gut reaction to the wrongness of it.

When the normal thing for kids was to go to the arcade and line up quarters. Dig Dug was my jam.

Someone along the way surely said, “Hey, he’s the guy who worked on those great Blur Studio shorts! Just throw money at him, I’m sure he knows what he’s doing.”

I also liked the Golden Axe pitch at the end of the post. Something just hyper-violent and bloody.
