Ok, I'm not going to sugarcoat my thoughts the recent Sonic Movie Poster. It isn't the worst movieposter by a long shot in general, but it is still bullshit for Sonic Movie poster. I'm still going to wait for a trailer of the actual an see what happens, but to me I'm personally having a sour feeling after the poster release.
In all honesty though, if this movie turns out to be bullshit even with someone supposedly as passionate as Tim Miller, then I'm simply going to do what AVGN did with Ghostbusters 2016 and not throw my money at it. (I encourage others to do the same if they can). I know that sounds childish in a way cause the criticism for the movie is deserved, but I'm just not going to make a big deal about it. Especially the bullshit complaining over it's going to kill the franchise when really I see this as Paramount Pictures taking hit considering how shoddy they are these days.
(I mean, the third Spongbob movie being created by Paramount is supposed to be a story of Spongebob's life in a similar fashion to the movie "It's a wonderful life". I don't see that movie ended well since it seems like a revision of Spongebob's character.)
However, even with the reasonable criticism that has come the past few days, I've also seen bullshit like this:mobile.twitter.com/GREENSTREAK…
Yeah, the user may have valid points, but to simply say that Sonic should be handed over to Nintendo to fix him up is the same drivel we heard for years even though Nintendo is not the answer to the current problems. Might I note as well that Nintendo is currently involved Illuminations for a Mario Movie....
(Being created as part of Nintendo's partnership with Universal for the Mario Land)
Yeah, I know the Mario movie is going to be fully animated, but this is Illuminations we are talking about... the animation company where it's business model is solely based on making Animated Films as cheap as possible... You think that movie is going to do really well with creation involvement from the same studio behind those bloody yellow tic tacs? Yeah it's not going to be Live Action 1993 bad, but I'm not giving the Mario movie a pass for that reason. (AND DON'T EVEN GET ME STARTED ON THE FACT THE ILLUMINATIONS HAS PLANS FOR A SHREK REBOOT! THAT I CAN'T FULLY COMPREHEND!)
I apologize if I was sounding a bit off topic from the main with this post. I'm just trying to explain yes the movie should be rightfully criticized if it goes down the route the poster is hinting at, but I encourage people to please just follow AVGN's lead because as stupid as this is, it's not worth the time for lame drama that's not necessary, and I don't want people coming up with bullshit solutions for Sonic that take the easy way out.
So, from what I'm hearing it's possible that the poster is a fake prank from Tim Miller. I'll be relieved if that's the case, though I don't know why a prank like this was even necessary.
