This week, Randy and Jens finally examine a relatively well-regarded video game adaptation, the Sonic the Hedgehog film. W2MNet’s Marc Morrison calls it “one of the top 5 best video game adaptations.” Meninists call it “the one that beat Birds of Prey.” It made 320 million dollars worldwide. Is this exalted status justified? Jens has a laundry list of reasons why the answer is “no,” but Randy’s gut says “maybe.” Listen for more.
