A new official trailer has landed for Sonic The Hedgehog.

Starring James Marsden, Jim Carrey, Ben Schwartz and Neal McDonough, this is the Jeff fowler directed story of a bright blue, super fast hedgehog destined to save planet. All with the the help of his new cop friend (Marsden)…

You may notice that Sonic looks quite different when compared to his appearance in the previous trailer released six months ago. It looks like all the fan complaints about the way he was animated have been listened to. The most noticeable difference I can see is Sonic’s nose. I have to admit, he looks better, right? Definitely cuter.

I’m in for the humour, speed and Jim Carey’s character, – who’s now giving me Will Farrell as ‘Mugatu’ in Zoolander (2001) vibes. I LOVE Mugatu!

Tika Sumpter,Leanne Lapp, Debs Howard, Elfina Luk, Shannon Chan-Kent and Frank C. Turner also star.

Sonic The Hedgehog Release Dates: February 14th, 2020 (US & UK)…

ANNA (2019): The Thing I Liked…

The story of writer /director Luc Besson’s Anna is one that I don’t completely regret watching but I certainly didn’t love it either.

Anna stars Sasha Luss as Anna Poliatova; a stunning beauty with impressive secret skills and strength. Qualities that make her one of the world’s most feared government assassins.

I sat down to watch Anna with mild expectations of the film probably having similarities to Charlize Theron’s Atomic Blonde (2017)The main difference I found between Anna and Atomic Blonde is that even though Anna is quite engaging overall, Anna unlike Atomic Blonde, left me feeling as though the whole experience was almost completely hollow. Very surface level and in some ways a tad silly.

It’s interesting because the acting wasn’t terrible. Therefore, I’m thinking the issue is the story edit which played a part in me having minimal emotional connection to Luss’s character’s journey. Of course I wanted her to win – always, but the the question of ‘why does this feel so frivolous?’ remained with me through to the very end.

Perhaps you’ll find Anna to be a better experience than I did. The fight scenes, though not the most polished I’ve ever seen, they are quite entertaining. Give it a chance and see if you’re especially curious. Or…

…watch Atomic Blonde instead.
