Sonic the Hedgehog – A Messy Franchise, a Messy Film


In response to Daniel’s message about doing a discussion episode for Birds of Prey I said, “That sounds great, but we haveta talk about Sonic the Hedgehog, too.”

Let me tell you, this was a blast to record! Daniel and I had some very interesting thoughts regarding the debut Hollywood feature film for the blue blur, and it’s one of the most entertaining pieces of Cinematic Doctrine media you can find. Trust me!

In this discussion episode, Daniel and I share fun stories about playing the Sonic video games, our immediate (and hilarious) takeaways from this bizarre film and how Jim Carrey steals the show, and whether it’s wise to indulge a film as nothing more than candy or background noise.

Tune in weekly for new episodes of Cinematic Doctrine!

Sonic the Hedgehog is Rated PG for action, some violence, rude humor and brief mild language.

It features Ben Schwartz, Tika Sumpter, Jim Carrey, and James Marsden

Directed by Jeff Fowler
