So okay, I know the talk of social media is that BS stunt Facebook did. They banned Alex Jones and other “controversial” celebrities from their social media site. Like most in computer repair, and most in general, I’m also upset at this injustice. But I want to talk about something lighter, well, a little lighter. It’s the Sonic the Hedgehog movie: and the pre-movie controversies.
So those of you in my generation remember playing Sonic the Hedgehog on your Sega Genesis. In fact, Sonic was pretty much the star of that franchise. Well, in November 2019 they’re releasing a movie about this hedgehog with super speed. Already, it’s raising eyebrows…for the wrong reasons. First of all, it will probably get an R rating, thanks to the f bombs. Then there are other scenes that aren’t exactly family friendly. And social media are letting director Jeff Fowler know how they feel. The comments got so much and so intense he sent a Twitter to reply to the feedback.
On Twitter, Fowler thanked the people for the criticism. He also vowed to make changes and give fans the movie they truly deserve. And fans gave Fowler and other filmmakers advice on how the movie can improve. So here is the preview of the upcoming film right here. Yes, that is Jim Carrey in the film.
To his credit, I do believe Fowler is going to do his best to make this a family film. It’s in his best interest. This film is to be cross-generational, allowing the over 35 crowd to relive memories, and the younger ones about the gaming culture of our youth. So it wouldn’t make sense to make it an ‘R’ movie. About the other content, I’m not so sure. From the preview that I saw, the jury’s still out on that one.
So what about you? Do you want to see the Sonic the Hedgehog Movie?
