Let's discuss the Sonic the Hedgehog movie

Hogging the mic.

The Sonic the Hedgehog movie has had quite the journey - from its disturbing first reveal, which even Sonic's original creator wasn't happy with, to recently becoming a box office smash.

But did we enjoy it? Editor Oli Welsh called it a a charmless cut-and-paste job in our Sonic movie review, while others came away with more positive impressions - but we did all agree it's a better Doctor Robotnik origin story than a Sonic one.

If you haven't seen the movie yet, we keep what there is to spoil to a minimum - but do announce when we discuss those moments ahead of time.

If you want to hear our other thoughts on video game adaptations - we also discuss our thoughts on the upcoming Mario movie in this episode - our podcast has also covered the Detective Pikachu movie and The Witcher Netflix series.

And if you want more on Sonic in particular, we tried to decide the best Sonic, well, everything during Sega Week last year.
