"Welcome to the first level"

@  Sunnyfruit : (16 July 2018 - 12:10 PM)

Absolute disgrace

@  Sunnyfruit : (16 July 2018 - 12:10 PM)

Sonic ads from before pointed to the next generation, Sonic ads from today are references to two generations before.

@  Sunnyfruit : (15 July 2018 - 09:41 AM)

:D

@  MoKat : (11 July 2018 - 11:18 AM)

I suppose stranger things -have- happened ;D

@  Sunnyfruit : (11 July 2018 - 01:25 AM)

I'm pretty sure Croatia will stomp England today. The final will be tight, anything could happen.

@  Uncle Ben : (10 July 2018 - 07:31 PM)

Now I guess it's Croatia that's the most out there?

@  Uncle Ben : (10 July 2018 - 07:31 PM)

I wanted Switzerland to win cause it would of been the most out there team.

@  Sunnyfruit : (10 July 2018 - 08:09 AM)

So much resentment in the FRA-BEL to come.

@  Uncle Ben : (06 July 2018 - 08:13 PM)

Tarred and Feathered probably

@  Quickster : (06 July 2018 - 11:06 AM)

Last night I also dreamed that Chaos came to the Thorndyke family's dinner.

@  Quickster : (06 July 2018 - 11:05 AM)

Night before last I had a dream that Chris Thorndyke was going to appear in the Sonic comics, and I thought, "I wonder how the Chris haters are going to react?"

@  Shadow : (06 July 2018 - 10:17 AM)

Looks like Robotnik finally won.

@  Sunnyfruit : (05 July 2018 - 11:52 AM)

Just found a dead hedgehog while cleaning my mother's garden. Still can't figure what kind of presage this is

@  Sunnyfruit : (01 July 2018 - 03:22 AM)

Sorry to hear the news.

@  Uncle Ben : (30 June 2018 - 07:09 AM)

My rabbit had to be put down today. She was 12, twice the age she should have been

@  Shadow : (26 June 2018 - 11:12 AM)

Well I didn't need an ambulance, so no charge there.

@  LogiTeeka : (24 June 2018 - 10:34 PM)

I'm hoping the health bill isn't too hefty.

@  LogiTeeka : (24 June 2018 - 10:33 PM)

Sheesh! You're lucky it wasn't worse.

@  Shadow : (23 June 2018 - 11:19 AM)

Just rest, and tylonel. Woke up with a black eye which is new.

Deadline is reporting that the Sonic the Hedgehog movie has found its villain with the addition of comedian Jim Carrey who will play Robotnik in the film. Carrey joins a cast for the live-action/animation hybid that includes Ride Along‘s Tika Sumpter and Westworld‘s James Marsden.

Also known as Dr. Eggman, Robotnik has been the primary antagonist of the Sonic franchise for decades, making his debut appearance in the first game in the series.

Sonic the Hedgehog will take its cues from the popular games, focusing on Sonic’s attempts to battle the evil Doctor Robotnik who is on a quest to assemble the Chaos emeralds. This mark the first time that the Sonic games have been adapted for the big screen, but the character has previously appeared in both Wreck-It Ralph and this year’s Ready Player One.

Neal H. Moritz from Original Film Inc. (Fast and Furious series) will produce the adaptation which has Jeff Fowler (Blur Studio, Academy Award nominee for 2005 Best Animated Short Film Gopher Broke) set to direct and Deadpool‘s Tim Miller executive producing. Sonic the Hedgehog film will open in theaters on November 15, 2019

Just as I feared. A live-action Eggman...

Then again, if they play their cards right, maybe it won't be so bad.

Pumped for IDW in April 2018! And also the 2019 Sonic movie.

 

It's high time I got an avatar...

Guys, this may not be a bad choice. Jim Carrey is considered one of the best character actors out there. I mean look at his roles over the years. Favorite one is Count Olaf

 

He could pull it off


The Scribes, if anyone wants to join a growing community. Ask me if you want to know more.

 

“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.”

He's a close visual approximation of Eggman from Sonic 2006 if they add facial hair and remove his scalp's hair.

I have no doubt he can pull off a good Eggman, I was just taken aback by the announcement. It sounds like one of those fake April Fools headlines that sounds too weird to be believed, yet it's totally genuine.

I don't really want Eggman to be like Jim Carrey's Riddler performance. I would have liked someone more theatrical like John Goodman or Ben Kingsley.

I made an image of what Dr. Eggman looks like with Jim Carrey's face superimposed.

Oh man, John Goodman would have been SPOT ON.  I dunno, this is so far the BEST piece of news we've got for the film...

Progenitor of Life, Father and Mother, 
Alpha and Omega, Our Creator...
And Our Destroyer.
