What was the point of making the new live-action/CGI Sonic the Hedgehog movie coming out?

@JGoldman10,
Never saw the series. To be honest, I haven't seen most tv shows before the late 80s.

I am only aware of the show because I have seen parodies and homages of Fantasy Island in many cartoons.

Theaters in China are closing for the foreseeable future due to the Coronavirus epidemic. What does that mean (relevance wise) for Sonic? Sonic is supposed to open on Feb. 28 in China.

The theaters should reopen before then... but since the Chinese government controls the movie theaters as a whole, they are going to give all the Chinese movies that are supposed to have their theatrical openings from here until the theaters reopen as many screens for them to recover (box office wise). Any outside (especially Hollywood) movies will be blocked from the Chinese theaters and a huge chunk of money that the Sonic movie and its studio are counting on to break even? That's could mean the difference between box office success or major flop.

@Rebelofnj,
Daffy Duck's Movie: Fantastic Island comes to mind.

A horror reimagining of the original Fantasy Island series. That's disgusting and disturbing.

Are you familiar with the show at all?


I am, and I find it hard to think anything could be more disgusting and disturbing than the original.

@izzythepush,
The original series wasn't horror-themed. If I remember right it was family-friendly.

@JGoldman10,
It was wish fulfilment, rich people paying for a fantasy. It was the ultimate in prostitution, the Hostel films where rich people tortured backpackers is a far more fitting sequel.

It was wrong, the message being if you're rich enough you have anything and everything so being rich is all that matters.

How does that fit in with what Christ said about camels and eyes of needles?

@JGoldman10,
I wouldn't be the first time a film adaptation of a TV series makes significant changes.

The 2012 film 21 Jump Street is a comedy, unlike the TV series which was a crime drama. Oddly enough, the film is set 20 years after the events of the TV series, and has cameos from the original TV cast.

The first Mission Impossible film was controversial for its decision of making the lead character of the TV series a traitor and a villain in the film. The cast of the original 60s show hated the film.

@Rebelofnj,
Not just TV adaptations. Alan Moore was very upset about how his graphic novels were portrayed on the big screen.

@izzythepush,
There are plenty of stories of authors being upset over how adaptations of their books turn out. Some of the time, the adaptation is actually good, but the author still finds fault with it for one reason or another.

*PL Travers disliked Disney's Mary Poppins film. The film Saving Mr. Banks (about Walt Disney working with Travers to adapt the book) downplayed Travers' hostility toward Disney.
*Stephen King initially hated Kubrick's The Shining, though he seems to find it tolerable in recent years, as he allowed his book Doctor Sleep to be adapted as a sequel to the Kubrick's The Shining.
*Roald Dahl hated Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory, to the point he prevented any attempts to make a film based on the book sequel The Great Glass Elevator.

Going back to Moore, it seems the only adaptation of his work that he is OK with (as in he has not publicly expressed disapproval) is the Justice League Unlimited episode that is based on "For The Man Who Has Everything".

@Rebelofnj,
Roald Dahl wanted Spike Milligan to play Wonka. He had a point.



This is one of the silliest things I've ever seen, always makes me laugh.

I know about the Jump Street movies. There were such strange departures from the series they were based on. The series was not a comedy.

I know Mr. T showed disapproval towards the recent A-Team movie that was made. He is a Christian; he didn't like the fact they put sex scenes in the movie. The original show was family-friendly.

I don't remember any sex scenes in the film. IMDB confirms there is no sex scenes.

Have you seen the film recently? It has been awhile since I have seen it. All I remember is the scene where the tank falls from the sky.

I do know that Mr. T's co-star Dwight Schultz approved of the film and approved of actor Sharlto Copley's portrayal of Schulz's character.

@Rebelofnj,
I think Mr Goldman's definition of sex scene is different from everyone else's.

This probably counts.

I didn't see the new A-Team movie. I might be mixing things up, but there was a reason why Mr. T disapproved of the movie.
It's been a while since I read about that.

Mr. T's words were:

Quote:
People die in the film and there's plenty of sex but when we did it, no one got hurt and it was all played for fun and family entertainment. These seem to be elements nobody is interested in anymore. It was too graphic for me. I've no doubt it will do big business at the box office but it's nothing like the show we turned out every week

That's basically what I said- he objected to the sexual content in the movie. According to the IMDB's parental guide there IS sexual content in the movie.

There is sexual innuendo and kissing scenes but there are no onscreen sex scenes. Same can be said with most summer blockbusters, like the Fast and Furious films.

As Mr Cholmondely Warner would say,
