While another alluding to the video game movie curse said: "Many Things end this year". Sonic doesn't even do one loop-the-loop. First, there was the lukewarm response to the news that rubber-faced superstar Jim Carrey was set to play Doctor Robotnik, then came the relatively hostile reaction to the movie's posters, which appeared to show a rather human-like hedgehog hero. Both of those trailers were a lot of fun, and the assembled press seemed caught off-guard by how unexpectedly entertaining Jeff Fowler's movie looked. It's a restrained interpretation, foregoing any prosthetics that might actually make him egg-shaped in favour of a slimming black-and-red suit, and taming the bushy moustache to a state of twirliness that has me convinced Sonic will at some point be chained to a railway track.
Which brings us to today.
