He's going fast.
Its quite amazing this movie is doing this well despite skepticism by some even after the redesign of the titular character. I am not complaining, this is great actually. I am happy one of the gaming mascots from my childhood game series is succeeding.
Deadline article of Sonic the Movie breaking through weekend opening.
It is projected to reach 55 Million over the weekend.
"“Sonic the Hedgehog” is racing to a dominant $55 million opening at 3,150 North American locations during the four-day President’s Day weekend in a launch that’s above forecasts, early estimates showed Friday." says in an article by Variety as the blue blur races to compete with other released movies this month. So far, Rotten Tomatoes rate it at 64% while IMDb and IGN are tied on rating it a 7/10.
No Spoilers given, promise.
IGN sure made short work of reviewing this movie, which is still about to be shown here in the US in some states. Seems that the major thing they point out is Jim Carrey acting more of a cartoon character than the titluar CGI hedgehog, which I would agree by just seeing clips from trailers and such. Another thing they kept repeating over and over is that "IF YOU ARE A SONIC FAN" you would actually like it for what's shown there. In the end they just state the movie isn't half bad, giving it a 7 out of 10.
Sites like IMBd gives it a 7.1/10 while Rotten Tomatoes has it at 63% thus far.

Sonic IGN Review
I am not kidding either.
Now I never got along with my parents. Actually, I never got along with my whole family then *and* now. Many things that I experienced and recent events on which makes me wish I was adopted. Saying this, it was a weird time back then when I decided to trade in my NES system and everything I got at a store called Funcoland now that I wanted to move on to the 16-bit era on which any other kid would mock you if you didn't "move forward."
Or Trials of Mana if you prefer.
While I may never experience the remake on the Switch, I can at least continue my quest on emulation. This is truly a beautiful game.
Will this signify a huge comeback to other PlayStation classics as well?
Earlier on the day I read and watch thoughts by gaming sites and youtube channels about a rumored new Ratchet and Clank game as a launch title for the upcoming PS5. This could be a great opportunity for Sony should it also decide on other games that were highly popular back on its PS2 days like Sly Cooper and such. Read the article by Dual Shockers below:
Well, excuuuuuuse me princess!
The Legend of Zelda animated series would debut as part of the Super Mario Bros. Super Show only on Fridays, replacing the timeslot with the animated Super Mario Bros. cartoon and would only have 13 episodes to its name. The show ends with no cliffhanger nor finishing up its premise whatsoever, probably for the fact that the main show was still airing and this would have been a good choice in repeating the series until it was taken off the air. Regardless of what actually happened, many would remember this cartoon mainly by its infamous quote shouted by Link in any other episode.
