Here's the funny thing: it's not a Marvel movie! Sure, it's got Marvel characters in it, but it's not being produced by Marvel... nor were any of the Spider Man live action movies, for that matter. They sold the film rights to the characters some time back, so they don't exactly control what's being released.


You know, I think if Marvel were to do Fantastic 4, it'd get done right. One of the biggest issues with the movies is that they don't follow the characters in the right way. Fantastic 4 never stood out in terms of action as a comic series; it stood out because of the complex inter-team conflict, drama and relationships. Reed and Sue, Sue and Johnny, Ben and everyone. Additionally, Dr. Doom in the comics was incredible compared to the one in the movie. A lot of their big name villains had complex and relatable motives and stories.

The original Fantastic 4 came out before we discovered the best way to go about making super hero movies, so it was a gamble, money-wise and they didn't want to take too big a risk. The second one came after and tried to follow the pattern that Marvel used to make amazing super-hero movies, and it didn't work because that was never what the Fantastic 4 were about.

TL;DR the source material is incredible, we just need someone who knows how to apply it to the big screen in the right way.

I agree. Marvel would do a bang-up job on the 4. As long as they don't do an origin story. Know who got Fantastic 4 right? The Incredibles. Just get into it. Forget the "Oh, this is how..." WE KNOW. We all know. All you have to do is say "Hey, remember that freak accident that made us this way?"

Marvel could do it.

Sonic the Hedgehog!

Y'know, I was reading the article and telling myself that this could work. I mean, the Sonic characters are fun, there's an interesting dynamic between the good guys and the villains, it's got several TV series before, this CAN work! I want to see that happening! Then I read this:
"... Sony had accquired the rights to create a live-action/animation hybrid..."

Nope nope nope nope nope nope nope! Cartoon, CGI, sure. But live-action and animation hybrid? That very rarely works...

All they have to do is rotate the film and it will fit into one.

It's an movie about emoji's.

Is there anything to really think about at this point?

I think we're just going through the motions of making movies about inanimate objects.

IT HAS HAPPENED. I HAVE SEEN IT!

And it was actually pretty good! I was expecting something cringy and off-brand, but no, it worked. I think they did about the best they could have with the cartoon-character-gets-thrown-into-the-real-world trope. I was hoping, when they announced the redesign and then the delay, that it was because they cared enough to try, and they did. They knew their material, even if the setting is completely different.

Random thoughts, very very mild spoilers.

Spoiler (click to toggle)
- I was on board the moment the Sega logo at the beginning went SAY-GAH! It was instrumental, not voiced, but still. Nice choice there, considering it's no longer the main corporate jingle.
- There was a dig at Mario early on. It felt appropriate.
- Sanic cameo! Perfectly placed too.
- Robotnik was a lot of fun the way Jim Carrey played it. More of this please.



Bigger spoilers.

Spoiler (click to toggle)
- I think half the crowd went "aww" when the little girl gave Sonic his characteristic red shoes.
- TAILS CAMEO


Let's be honest, it's not great cinema, but it was entertaining. I hadn't laugh that much at a movie in a while. In the end, I think the fun part is what really matters!
