A fat black lady being loud may be funny to a 5 year old, but for kids who just wanted to see Sonic and Tails go on adventures, this movie was a complete let down.
            The ending was Kino, as a total calling to Sonic heroes, but at that point, the damage was done.

          This, but unironically. I love the idea of Sonic having a human father figure, but I hate how these live-action Sonic films aren't set on a version of Earth where humans and anthros have lived together with each other all along (like in the games - and yes, Sonic lives on Earth in the original Japanese version of the games because Mobius is an American creation). Like, I don't even mind that these films aren't 2D/3D animated films because we haven't gotten any live-action Sonic films before 2020 so these live-action Sonic films are bringing something new to the table aesthetically, but not having humans and anthros co-existing right from the start is the biggest flaw of these live-action Sonic films.

    During 2020 lockdowns I spent a full week completing a unfulfilled childhood goal of getting a A rank on every single mission in Sonic Adventure 2 so I could unlock the secret 3D Greenhill stage. I spent every day getting hammered. I'd start drinking and gaming at noon and go till 10. Finally, all I had left to do was the Chao garden emblems. Luckily there was an exploit for quickly leveling up your Chaos or else that would've taken me another 12 hours of farming levels for items. So I finally unlocked Greenhill zone, and it's a stage that has absolutely nothing in it that lasts about 45 seconds and you get no rank for beating it. It felt like the ultimate slap in the face to someone hard-core and dedicated enough to get an A rank on every single mission. They could've at least let us play as Metal Sonic or Super Sonic as a playable character in Sonic/Shadows missions or something

          This is the exact reasoning those execs were operating on and it's what drove that studio to the ground. Had they taken their bullshit bandages off somewhere during production, none of that would have happened. Why is the audience's fault that they couldn't enforce quality control for a quick buck?
          Thanks to that change, Paramount doesn't have to rely on Transformers alone to pay back their enourmous debt.

          It wouldn't have happened if the director Jeff Fowler didn't go full moron with the original design, the worst part about this is that Fowler is a Sonicgay and was involved with the series long before becoming a movie director yet he didn't give a frick. At least Illumination/Nintendo learned from this frickup without having to crunch by getting the designs of Mario characters right from the get-go.

                The Dreamcast was the first console I ever bought entirely with my own saved-up pocket money (along with Sonic Adventure 1) as an 11-year-old kid in 1999. Good times. I will always fondly remember those days and I wish Sega was still making consoles. A relic of a happier, simpler and better time. We'll never get it back.

                >What made SA2 so special?

                The writing was a big part of it. The writer poured weaponized autism into the story and how he wrote the characters. He'd think about the dialogue as he drove home from work and didn't just disconnect himself from it when he left the office. He went so far as to say he has a deeper connection to Shadow than he does his own family. The guy cared and wanted to make a story that he would have liked, first and foremost, not what the suits would like. When anons said the story was anime cheese "played completely straight", that was why. Dreamcast Sonic is anime

                This is also why the stories for Sonic, for such a long time, have been total shit because they don't hire passionate autists to write it anymore. Worse yet, they get western writers now, for over a decade, who are as disconnected from otaku culture as possible. Sonic doesn't bleed cool delinquent edge anymore. Amy isn't allowed to act like Amy and chase Sonic anymore. Rouge is just a generic woman character without her sex appeal. They removed all the stuff Japanese gamers and weebs like and replaced it with what westerners tolerate and understand. And until the stories move back into Japanese autist hands again, it won't get better

                Mario fans got a little taste of how it feels when westerners get involved, when Seth Rogen and his crew were in charge of the characters personalities and stories in the Mario movie. What they did to Mario and Peach was noticed immediately and it is going to get way worse for them too

    A lot of Shadow's lyrics had to do with how conflicted he feels. Even in his theme, "Throw It All Away", it comments on how, even if he is immortal, it doesn't matter and he would rather throw it all away because the life itself is meaningless.

    In Rhythm and Balance, the White Jungle stage where you have to save Rouge before the island explodes, the song asks over and over if Shadow is scared, once again that if he fails, he will lose yet another person close to him.

    In the Supernatural, Final Chase's stage, the song starts asking if Shadow is even the Ultimate Lifeform to begin with as he gets closer to Maria's "dream."

    The Biolizard of course, is unironically what I'd call Shadow's swan song. "Supporting Me" sounds just like the title, Shadow has finally given up revenge and learned that he wants to protect the world but he doesn't really know how to do this. He will do everything in his power, knowing that Maria is supporting him in order to fulfill her last wish, even if it means his untimely end, which the song references at the end of the song as well.

    And of course, Live and Learn. Pretty explanatory, but it's learning to live with your mistakes and to keep moving in life even if all seems lost.

    Shadow's story was unironically a great lead up from a broken individual lead on by hatred to one of redemption, giving his life to the ones he tried to destroy in the first place. We really won't have kino like this again, but at least its here.

    Does anyone other than me have their own Sonic-related headcanons? In one of my Sonic-related headcanons, Vanilla had a one-night stand with Eggman (at least in the games) and that's how Cream was born. Also, Cream should have TWO EYELASHES on both of her eyes. And because Paramount are homosexuals, they probably won't make Eggman Cream's father. That's why I think Cream's father in Sonic 3 should be Shadow. I don't know why I love the idea of Eggman (and Shadow, to a lesser extent) being Cream's father so much.

    They got to get rid of the bio lizard though. It’s the one legitimate gripe from a pretty kino SA2 story. It comes out of nowhere and is a dumb boss.

    IMO best solution will be have some evolved form of metal sonic be the final villain. He will have no qualms with wiping out all of humanity, and is the only really recognizable villain left. He can do his lizard form from Heroes, fuse with the space colony ark, and is what sonic/shadow team up to fight at the end

    Also this will for sure be carreys last movie. Follow the SA2 plot where he ends the movie setting aside his rivalry with sonic for the greater good. If done correctly this movie can be pure kino

      Filtered. The Biolizard makes sense, it just isn't explained outright. The point of Project Shadow was for the government to find ultimate power and immortality. Lizards are known for being able to regrow their tails if it's cut off, so was one avenue for exploring immortality.

      It also just gives us a big monster to fight to amp up the spectacle, and removes some of the blame for the whole ordeal from Shadow as now the Biolizard is the villain and Shadow can have his hero turn.

      The Biolizard does get setup in a scene earlier in the story. The movie shouldn't waste time setting up another real villain. The focus at the end should be on Shadow's redemption, and a last minute Metal Sonic fanservice or something would be stealing thunder from that. They just need a big monster to beat up.

          It's listed when Rouge gives her lore dump on Shadow in the Canon's Core on the Ark. She lists that Shadow might not be the original Shadow. The Biolizard is also straight out shown in the scene on the monitors behind Rouge. Pretty cool stuff to go back and realize that this crazy melodramatic plot about hedgehogs is surprisingly coherent.

              >Not the original shadow
              Project Shadow was for finding ultimate power and immorality, so there were a few revisions, the Biolizard being the first, Shadow presumably being the second. After the Biolizard was deemed unstable and probably impractical seeing as how it's a giant fricking lizard, it was stored away on The Ark. It was later released through Gerald's revenge plan. So Shadow is basically the 2nd revision made with the help of aliens...

              Sonic bros lore dump me on Shadows origin story. Does he come from Sonic’s world or is he man made ?

              >lore dump me on Shadows origin story.
              ...so about those aliens... lol. That was retcon from Shadow the Hedgehog (2005), but the aliens come back in that new Generations trailer, so who knows.
              Anyway, >Does he come from Sonic’s world or is he man made ?
              In the games, there is no 'Sonic's world.' It's all just Earth. In the 90's in the US it was changed to the whole 'other world' thing, but in the official canon and the JP games sense the start, it's just normal earth but with loops.

              Shadow was man-made by the government and Eggman's grandfather. The government wanted to find ultimate power and find immortality. Eggman's grandfather wants immortality to save his granddaughter who has space AIDS. They tried with the giant lizard, as lizards can regenerate body parts, so it was at least an avenue to try, but then the aliens came down and were like 'what if you tried the Chaos' Emeralds?' This ties into the Chaos Emeralds being from another planet as seen in Frontiers recently.

              Anyway, with the new direction being less lizard and more emerald, it's assumed (and hinted at in recent lore) that Eggman's grandfather finds the mural of Super Sonic and the Chaos Emeralds from Sonic 3 & Knuckles and decides to base his 2nd take on the immorality off the that. That's why Shadow's quills stand up like Super Sonic and why he defaults to Chaos Emerald powers.

              That's the set-up, rest in shown in game.

              tl;dr Sonic canon is stupid and I love it.

                Not in the games. The games are still 100% on Earth. However a recent 'retcon' would be that the Chaos Emeralds specifically are from another planet. This was dumped in Frontiers, but it does tie back to Shadow (2005), but I wonder if that's just coincidence rather than actual planning.

                The movies decided to go with the 'other world' idea from the earlier western cartoons, probably because it would make more sense to general audiences over the 'yeah, there's just blue talking hedgehogs on Earth'

                Yeah, a lot of the cartoons had him as an alien. Again, it's just easier for a casual audience member to understand because you're right
                >some of the games the environments don’t look like they are from earth
                Yep, it's kind hard for people that aren't neck deep into this shit to reconcile, but in the games, it is Earth and all of Sonic's friends are just creatures that live on Earth, except for Shadow who was man-made in a lab

                >Not the original shadow
                Project Shadow was for finding ultimate power and immorality, so there were a few revisions, the Biolizard being the first, Shadow presumably being the second. After the Biolizard was deemed unstable and probably impractical seeing as how it's a giant fricking lizard, it was stored away on The Ark. It was later released through Gerald's revenge plan. So Shadow is basically the 2nd revision made with the help of aliens...

                Anyway, >Does he come from Sonic’s world or is he man made ?
                In the games, there is no 'Sonic's world.' It's all just Earth. In the 90's in the US it was changed to the whole 'other world' thing, but in the official canon and the JP games sense the start, it's just normal earth but with loops.

                Shadow was man-made by the government and Eggman's grandfather. The government wanted to find ultimate power and find immortality. Eggman's grandfather wants immortality to save his granddaughter who has space AIDS. They tried with the giant lizard, as lizards can regenerate body parts, so it was at least an avenue to try, but then the aliens came down and were like 'what if you tried the Chaos' Emeralds?' This ties into the Chaos Emeralds being from another planet as seen in Frontiers recently.

                Anyway, with the new direction being less lizard and more emerald, it's assumed (and hinted at in recent lore) that Eggman's grandfather finds the mural of Super Sonic and the Chaos Emeralds from Sonic 3 & Knuckles and decides to base his 2nd take on the immorality off the that. That's why Shadow's quills stand up like Super Sonic and why he defaults to Chaos Emerald powers.

                That's the set-up, rest in shown in game.

                tl;dr Sonic canon is stupid and I love it.

          It's listed when Rouge gives her lore dump on Shadow in the Canon's Core on the Ark. She lists that Shadow might not be the original Shadow. The Biolizard is also straight out shown in the scene on the monitors behind Rouge. Pretty cool stuff to go back and realize that this crazy melodramatic plot about hedgehogs is surprisingly coherent.

              When the old games were made there was no "Sonic's world", Sonic and friends had always lived on "not-Earth" alongside humans. So the fact that Shadow was a genetically engineered anthropomorphic hedgehog wasn't that weird because talking animals were already normal.

Hell, he hasn't spoken to another person/echidna in over a decade and has no form of communication with the outside world. He can be smart/wise, but his naivety gets taken advantage of.

                You are both correct and I love how the live-action Sonic films show Knuckles as how he originally was, which was as a wise person who is simply very naive because of his isolation on the floating island he lives on.

              In SA2, Shadow is man-made. The government was researching immortality and asked the bio engineer Dr.Gerald, to help them achieve it. He originally refused, but seeing that his granddaughter was slowly dying from a terminal sickness, he agreed to the project. While he did as asked by the government, secretly he was only really going along with it in the hopes that his discovery could help his ill grandchild. Two creations were made during his experimentations: the bio-lizard and Shadow. Shadow was raised with Maria and he became very fond and protective of her

              Eventually the feds decided the project was too dangerous, or too difficult to keep secret, so they went Waco on everyone. They killed Maria and executed Dr.Gerald. Shadow was traumatized by the event and misremembered what Maria asked of him before she died. He attempts to kill everyone on Earth in a doomsday plan Dr.Gerald set in motion, until Amy brought out Maria's actual request in Shadow's repressed memory, which was to help humanity. Shadow dies redirecting the falling space station away from Earth

                Based, I wholeheartedly agree with you. I always love the original version of Shadow from SA2 no matter what. Shadow should not have been brought back to life after SA2 because it cheapened the impact of his sacrifice at the end of SA2 and turned him from someone who was orignally just a broken man saddened by the loss of his only friend in SA2 into an edgy parody of himself in pretty much all of his future appearances and from what I understand, the original plan for Shadow was to NOT bring him back to life after SA2. But because Shadow became so immensely popular in SA2 and because there was such a huge demand to bring him back after SA2, he was brought back to life. This is just another case of fans (or so-called 'fans') getting in the way of artistic integrity and ruining the original vision that Sonic Team had for Shadow. I genuinely believe that Sonic Team may have feared that Shadow would have become more popular than Sonic himself if Shadow was not brought back to life after SA2. When Shadow was brought back to life after SA2, he went from a memorable character to a mediocre character (I haven't played 06 by the way and I have no intention of doing so). As far as I'm concerned, we the fans get to decide whatever is canon and I say that it is canon that Shadow sacrificed his life at the end of SA2 to fulfill his promise to Maria and Shadow has now reunited with Maria in Heaven.

                That's exactly what happened. Iizuka himself in live interviews over the years, in front of a crowd too so there can be no debate, has confirmed this was the case. Shadow was extremely popular and Sonic fans loved him. Sega suits noticed this, so to capitalize on his popularity in the hopes of selling more games, they had him brought back to life during the making of Sonic Heroes. Originally, he was not meant to be in any of the teams, but he was shoehorned in and they had to work around it

      Stopped reading there. Biolizard is kino and MUST be in Sonic 3.

      >It comes out of nowhere and is a dumb boss.
      Filtered. The Biolizard makes sense, it just isn't explained outright. The point of Project Shadow was for the government to find ultimate power and immortality. Lizards are known for being able to regrow their tails if it's cut off, so was one avenue for exploring immortality.

      It also just gives us a big monster to fight to amp up the spectacle, and removes some of the blame for the whole ordeal from Shadow as now the Biolizard is the villain and Shadow can have his hero turn.

      You're right. Stay based.

      Nah man, it was. It was a cynical attempt to cash in on Shadow's popularity, even though bringing him back to life ruined the impact of him sacrificing himself to save Earth at the end of SA2. The real Shadow died permanently at the end of SA2 and was reunited with Maria.

      >Shadow spinoff wasn't that bad.
      Agreed. That game is surprisingly solid. Everyone just looks at it as the 'edgy' game, but that made sense at the time. Sonic was on the backfoot from the Dreamcast going down and Heroes being a production/reception shitshow, so why not try following the most popular character in the series at that point isntead? The guns added an interesting tweak to gameplay and functioned pretty well. Also, plenty of games at that time had the 'edgy' aesthetic, and it's not surprising that Izuka said he played Jak 2 just before working on Shadow. The game also has noticeably more polish and greater variety/scope than Heroes. Stack on how almost every Sonic game was getting shit on at the time regardless of quality, and everyone just jumped on hating Shadow and assumed it was terrible without ever actually playing it.

      Not the best game ever, but the whole 'Sonic has a gun?!?!' shit is so stupid. Sonic never gets a gun and no human is killed in the game, even by Shadow. Hell, it's not even a 'Sonic' game, it's supposed to be a spin-off 'Shadow' game. Frickin Luigi's Mansion is a Mario game where you can't jump, why the hell does every Sonic Team game need to be another 'Sonic runs to the right' experience?

      That was a lot to write, but damn it, it's rant I've had for like a decade, so whatever.

      tl;dr, I agree. Shadow is not that bad a game.

    If they do Super Shadow, I hope they have his fur turn white like in SA2. With Sonic going from blue to yellow and Shadow going from black to white, it felt like hedgehogs' colors inverted when they go Super, which I thought was a cool idea. (This would mean Amy would go from pink to green if she ever went super.)

    But disappointingly, when Sonic 06 came out, and we had Shadow AND Silver both go super, Sega just made them turn yellow too, and it's been like that since.

    Shadow's game was bad because it soiled his public image and irreversibly ruined him. The damage was so critical, there was no coming back from it. In SA2, Shadow was misled, but he wasn't a malevolent character by nature. He spent all his time with Maria, his character was kind, but he was hurt by his experiences and was acting on what he thought Maria wanted. It was very tragic. And when Shadow realized what he was doing was wrong, he immediately did a 180 heel turn and went to correct his mistake, dying in the process

    Post the Shadow the Hedgehog game, Shadow increasingly acted more and more like a huge butthole. He had no reason to act that way, it wasn't in his character. It is like Sega decided they wanted a dickhead antagonistic hedgehog character that was deliberately mean, but was too lazy to think up a new one, so they just made Shadow into it instead

      Everything Shadow-related post-SA2 is not canon in my opinion, see this post of mine:

      Sonic = Goku
      Tails = Gohan
      Knuckles = Piccolo
      Silver = Trunks
      Shadow = Vegeta

      [...]

      >Everything after SA2 with Shadow, I don't care about. Aliens came in, clones, Bejita, who knows. It was bad and stayed bad

      Based, I wholeheartedly agree with you. I always love the original version of Shadow from SA2 no matter what. Shadow should not have been brought back to life after SA2 because it cheapened the impact of his sacrifice at the end of SA2 and turned him from someone who was orignally just a broken man saddened by the loss of his only friend in SA2 into an edgy parody of himself in pretty much all of his future appearances and from what I understand, the original plan for Shadow was to NOT bring him back to life after SA2. But because Shadow became so immensely popular in SA2 and because there was such a huge demand to bring him back after SA2, he was brought back to life. This is just another case of fans (or so-called 'fans') getting in the way of artistic integrity and ruining the original vision that Sonic Team had for Shadow. I genuinely believe that Sonic Team may have feared that Shadow would have become more popular than Sonic himself if Shadow was not brought back to life after SA2. When Shadow was brought back to life after SA2, he went from a memorable character to a mediocre character (I haven't played 06 by the way and I have no intention of doing so). As far as I'm concerned, we the fans get to decide whatever is canon and I say that it is canon that Shadow sacrificed his life at the end of SA2 to fulfill his promise to Maria and Shadow has now reunited with Maria in Heaven.

      One billion.

    Guys what are the chances they will waste Live and Learn on a trailer instead of using it on the climax of the movie ?

      Very high unfortunately. Modern hollywood are dipshits who haven't learnt the art of the trailer.

        Sure it will built hype but I feel Live and Learn would be best fit in the climax of the movies instead of the trailer

          I completely agree with you, that's why I'm saying they'll probably frick up and put Live And Learn in the trailer instead of saving it for the climax of the film.

      I think we can be cautiously optimistic that they'll use a crush 40 song in the climax even if only an orchestral version
      The first 2 films were jammed full of subtle and overt fan service. They know their audience.

        No they have to play the original Live and Learn in the climax. No fricking Black person rapper re-recording. Just the original masterpiece

      I wouldn't be surprised, they did the same thing with Sonic 2's teaser that featured Emerald Hill Zone and they didn't use it in the movie.
      Regardless it's definitely a wasted potential if they don't utilize any of the soundtracks from the video games especially Live and Learn, I mean Illumination went all out with the soundtrack in Super Mario and people loved it so there's no reason to not play it.

          I think the director doesn't want to blow his load with fanservice and rather maintained the films to stand out on their own, which is kinda like the opposite of what Mario turned out to be.

    Sega really does seem to gave some kind of planning / marketing synergy going on here with sonic 3 and generations shadow

    I feel like we're hitting that mk 11 point where the newer characters are too shitty to sustain the sequels though

      You could replace Movienic with any CG creature and it would change nothing in the first movie. The second tries to grab more from the games, but little

      In short: no

      >longtime fan of the Sonic games here.

      So am I, the first Sonic game I ever played was Sonic 1 in 1996 though I wish I played it for the first time in 1991.

      >I didn’t watch the first or second movie. are they woke? or are they worth watching?

      They're not woke, they're just mid as frick. Fingers crossed that the third film will be spectacular.

      They're a little 'woke' if you're reaching into the number of black people in the movies, but honestly, there's very little in the way of CURRENT YEAR bs. A few offhanded lines that only /misc/ would really pick-up on, and even then it's more /misc/ getting upset about every little thing.

      They're just fun kids movies. Not masterpieces and they don't really elevate outside of 'family friendly kids movie' but they're harmless. The 2nd movie does have an obnoxious black wedding that goes on for too long, but if you're a hardcore enough Sonic fan, then the offhanded references to G.U.N are enough to slog through it to get back to the pretty well done Sonic adventures.

      Yeah, what a weird version to adapt. I thought they were going for SA2 Shadow stuff in this movie, but I guess they made a vow, so THEIR MOTHER WILL BE FOUND
