Sonic The Hedgehog Is Heading to The Big Screen With Sony Pictures Entertainment


Neal Moritz

If our local cinema doesn’t do a special on chilli dogs on release night, we’re starting something. Neil Moritz (21 Jump Street and The Fast and Furious franchise) will produce a screenplay written by Evan Susser and Van Robichaux for a new Sonic the Hedgehog movie, it has been announced.

Sonic the Hedgehog 2

The film - according to an official press release - will reportedly capture "Sonic's irreverent tone and spirit, reuniting him with some of the most revered and infamous characters of the franchise, including the evil Dr. Eggman." It will be a concoction of live action and animation.

The Fast and the Furious Review


Weak
Fast cars, scantily clad women, bare-knuckle brawls, and guns, guns, guns!

What more could be expected from a guilty pleasure-ridden American popcorn movie like The Fast and the Furious. Nothing of substance or intelligence is ever really expected from a summer movie, much less when that movie bears a title akin to a bad porno flick. The Fast and the Furious was exactly how I felt leaving the theater: Hightailing it back home, furious at how quickly the movie fell apart. I mean, how the hell could you screw up something as slam-dunk-awesome as souped-up performance cars amidst the illegal street racing subculture of the L.A. Basin?

Not Another Teen Movie Review


Unbearable
Fitting spoofs of at least 16 teen movies into one questionable parody film is like trying to fit ten pounds of sausage into a five pound bag. You just end up with a groan-inducing mess.

Stuffed solid with references to nearly ever teen-related movie made in the last 20 years (including a few I never knew were teen films -- American Beauty and Almost Famous?), Not Another Teen Movie is a headache-inducing, lame-ass ride down memory lane. It's a mystery just who the filmmakers think this movie's target audience is, considering that those of us who grew up in the '80s are most likely not going to get all the '90s teen movie references, and vice versa.

Urban Legends: Final Cut Review


Terrible
Words I thought I'd never write: the sequel to Urban Legend lacks the grace, wit, and power of the original.

Put the gun to my head, pull the trigger, and put me out of my misery. Better yet, put the horror genre out of its misery. When you've finished watching Urban Legends: Final Cut, you'll share my same grim point of view thanks to the horrible acting, terrible script, and ridiculous directing which has become all too common today.

Sweet Home Alabama Review


Good
In Sweet Home Alabama, Reese Witherspoon plays Melanie Carmichael, a talented and rising New York fashion designer who suddenly finds herself engaged to the city's most coveted bachelor, Andrew (Patrick Dempsey).

However, Melanie's past holds many secrets, including Jake (Josh Lucas), the redneck loser that she married in Alabama during high school and who refuses to divorce her.

Melanie immediately travels to her hometown and confronts Jake in an attempt to end their relationship once and for all, but fond memories of the Alabama locals and her old husband offer an unlikely alternative to her future in the big apple.
