‘Sonic the Hedgehog’ Review: An Exhausting Video Game Adaptation With an Identity Crisis

Who is Sonic the Hedgehog for? What is the target audience for a film that wants to take its cues from Deadpool but also family films about the Easter Bunny? Ostensibly, children should want very badly to see this movie adaptation of the long-running Sega video game about an extremely fast blue animal. But Sonic the Hedgehog can’t figure out if its audience is the parents of those children — those of us who grew up with the first iteration of Sonic — or kids themselves. The result is...

‘Terminator: Dark Fate’ Honest Trailer: Making ‘Terminator 2’ Pointless But Also Being Pretty Good

Terminator: Dark Fate is one of many new legacy-quels taking what you loved about the best installments of a franchise, ignoring the movies that were bad, and basically rebooting the whole series by doing it all over again. Unfortunately, audiences didn’t really turn out to see this one in theaters, so we’re not likely to see how the story would have continued. But at the very least, we have the Terminator: Dark Fate Honest Trailer to remind us that this movie makes the events of Terminator 2: ...

‘Clue’ Remake with Ryan Reynolds Now in the Hands of ‘The Muppets’ Director James Bobin

It’s been two years since we heard Ryan Reynolds was producing a new adaptation of the classic murder mystery board game Clue from Deadpool writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick.
