When was there a Woody Woodpecker film?

@  Clocktopus : (21 October 2018 - 07:30 PM)

There has yet to be a live-action/CGI movie that hasn't sucked. Woody Woodpecker? Smurfs? Chipmunks? Garfield? Take your pick.

@  Uncle Ben : (21 October 2018 - 06:39 PM)

True

@  Shadow : (21 October 2018 - 05:38 PM)

Nobody wanted a live action Smurfs either.

@  Uncle Ben : (21 October 2018 - 04:33 PM)

I still think it would work better as an animated film.

@  Uncle Ben : (21 October 2018 - 04:33 PM)

Still, for a film like the Smurfs, it makes sense. For Sonic, it has to be done *exactly* right.

@  Shadow : (21 October 2018 - 08:09 AM)

Probably a cheap way to keep the budget down to not pay for the whole movie being a Pixar budget.

@  Uncle Ben : (20 October 2018 - 09:06 PM)

I really dont know why they insisted on it being a hybrid film

@  Uncle Ben : (20 October 2018 - 09:05 PM)

I do think there will be some salvageable parts to the film.

@  Sandata : (20 October 2018 - 03:09 PM)

I want the Sonic movie to be good. Hell even if I hear it's terrible I'll probably go see it, but I'd love it to actually turn out well.

@  Sandata : (20 October 2018 - 03:08 PM)

House of the Dead was so horribad... I saw it with friends and one guy really said it best as we left, "Yeah, so it's interesting how bad that movie sucked."

@  Uncle Ben : (20 October 2018 - 07:19 AM)

Because of course it is

@  Shadow : (18 October 2018 - 10:16 PM)

The town is called Green Hills.

Needs the help of a local county cop to protect him, and becomes viral online when recorded by townsfolk.

@  Shadow : (18 October 2018 - 12:16 PM)

From what I heard the plot is, it's about Sonic being an animal that got experimented on by Eggman who steals magical incan rings from him.

@  Uncle Ben : (18 October 2018 - 07:39 AM)

failure*

@  Uncle Ben : (18 October 2018 - 07:39 AM)

I always said it was gonna be ironically excellent or a spectacular flaiure

@  Clocktopus : (18 October 2018 - 05:58 AM)

But we KNEW that already!

@  Shadow : (17 October 2018 - 01:34 PM)

The Sonic movie is being filmed on my island, and the rumors of the supposed plot sound extremely cringe worthy awful.

Long Before the Boom Blitz, Other Plans


A new audio interview published Monday by the Press the Buttons Podcast reveals the idea of a Sonic movie, now firmly entrenched in the minds of fans around the world, is not a new idea.

Console Wars author Blake Harris revealed in the Podcast that in the midst of his research for the book detailing the great battle between Sega and Nintendo for supremacy during the 1990s, he came across plans for MGM to release a Sonic film–in 1994.

I’ve continued to conduct interviews with people, just to try and get more context, and I’ve also continued to try to get my hands on as much archival material as I can. Some of it can obviously be helpful to the documentary, but I recently found — I came across a contract that Sega had with MGM in 1994 to produce a Sonic the Hedgehog movie, which I didn’t know about, and I’m sure it couldn’t weave its way into the book…

Harris adds it was intended was an animated movie.

It’s not the only Sonic or Sega related story you’ll hear in the interview that may not be in Console Wars. You can hear more with Harris at this at this link.

I will say, it fills me with great hope that it was planned to be fully animated. The timing would have been good as well, given Sonic was at the height of its popularity.

 

I can only imagine the fisticuffs SEGA Japan and America would have gotten into over whether to base it on the games or cartoons, though.

 

Naturally SEGA Japan would have won... which probably explains why up until this new film, the only "movie" for Sonic was a two-part anime series.

I don't think so. This is older.

“Some say that he is the only man in history to buy a DFS sofa when there wasn’t a sale on, and that his favourite boxing venue is Munich airport. All we know is he’s called the Stig.”

 

“Some say that if you hold him in the wrong way he doesn’t work properly, and that just very recently he developed an irrational hatred of Rubens Barrichello. All we know is he’s called the Stig.”
