    9:23 "Is it weird to say this is kind of how I see real life politics working out? Just a bunch of shit that makes no sense and it results in nothing but a lot of destruction?"
    And then the screen flashes and instead of 'Sonic', it says 'Brexit'.

    November 2019 will have a new Sonic movie. It has Jim Carrey and that dude from Hop. Sonic is fully CGI and looks... Weird...

    1:58 Unpopular opinion: I’m not much of a fan of Sonic SATAM.
    I’m not sure why, maybe it’s alienating to me? When I got into the Sonic Series there was already characters like Amy, Shadow, and Knuckles.

    If your going to do a review like sonic it would have been better in the original Japanese version. I like the film and sound track but always prefer the original.

    I think you need to watch this movie with a big load of suspension of disbelief. It helps being a fan too... >_>
    Yeah, the movie's pretty bad, but it's at least enjoyable in its campiness. I know I liked parts of it when I first saw it. And I have a feeling it'd be easier to sit through if it wasn't dubbed so poorly, maybe the original Japanese version is marginally better?

    And I don't really understand why everyone seems to dislike Tails so much. Yes his voice is annoying, and his character traits are often misused or flat out ignored, but he's also such a nice relief from all the super-confident people of Sonic's universe, at least when the writing's done well. He can still be a badass, but he doesn't brag about it excessively or act like the centre of attention, he just wants to do good. I've always liked him, despite his inconsistant character quality.
    I suppose if you've never played the games you'd not like him that much... And I'm not sure whether or not that's a tragedy.

    "I think the movie needed the instruction book to explain the backstory!"
    I don't know, Doug. It would probably accidentally call that human/cat girl "Princess Sally", kind of like the Sonic CD instruction book, and cause mass confusion among the fans about the different Sonic continuities, ultimately causing even more rifts and whiney arguments in the Sonic fan base. And my god, we've got enough of that already!

    How can Doug have no clue whether this's any good or not? He did a skit not long before in which Sage from Anime Abandon called him up and chewed him out for claiming some other Sonic was the worst ever; Doug guesses he's trying to demand a collab and Sage gives him a minute-long explanation of just how much he can suck his d*ck.

    this is my favourite adaptation of sonic actually , it's just about sonic ,tails and knuckles going on an adventure to defeat eggman ,what .else could i ask for it's just fun it's not a masterpiece ,but it's fun ,maybe the reason why i don't have any problems with it, is because i'm a sonic fan

    Actually, Australian Knuckles is probably a good idea. Sega just needs to reboot the Sonic franchise... and make it good.

    This will probably mean nothing to you guys but with the comics, which the original Sonic cartoon followed the same plot, the planet Mobius which is where Sonic and all the other characters live, is the future Earth after some sort of catastrophe. The human race basically went extinct except for a select few, which would include the Robotnik family as well as a few others, and animals had evolved or mutated into the current human like state they are in, but animal species might have no resemblance to the original animal itself, which explains hedgehogs and echidnas seeming to look nothing like actual hedgehogs and echidnas. Now you know my useless knowledge of the Sonic universe. And some of it may be off since it has been awhile since I read the comics.

    While I respect his opinion, it's obvious he dosen't know much about the Sonic franchise. Sure Sat Am's story was good, but poor compaired to Sonic 3 and Knuckles, Mania, and the Adventure games.
