TSSZ: Vertical Slice: Just Like the Movies

MegaWestgarth TSSZ Vertical Slice Sonic Movie

The latest Vertical Slice is here, and this time I talk about the recently announced Sonic the Hedgehog movie. Check out the article "Just Like the Movies" over at TSSZ. An excerpt can be found below:

My thoughts went the same way as many TSSZ readers; to uninspired, cash-grabbing, modern reboots of Garfield, Alvin and the Chipmunks, and The Smurfs. How could it not? The bastardisation of the West’s contemporary children’s classics has been a major component of the child-focused arm of the film industry for several years now, and most of its output has been awful.

But my major concern is that a non-Sonic Boom Western movie will mean that, along with Sonic Team’s future vision of Sonic, there will be three separate versions of the Sonic brand to manage.

Go have a read of the article in full over at TSSZ.
