Sonic the Hedgehog was a good first movie of the year for me

Jim Carrey, as an actor, has always been a bit quirky. Ace Ventura and the Mask quite illustrative of his quirky roles. The same could be said of Johnny Depp. Although for both actors, it seems that with their attained success they were given great latitude to become even quirkier. That is where we are at with the Sonic the Hedgehog movie.

I went into the movie cold. Meaning, I had no idea what it was about. However, my son was thrilled to see it and determined to see for himself whether the movie managed to get past its bad teeth press. Well, yes it did.

Unbelievably, the movie based on a video game, was not bad. It was actuslly decent. It had heart, laughs, and a few good lines. Jim Carrey managed to be quirky in a good way. He was a cross between Austin Powers’ Dr. Evil and Stanley Ipkiss (AKA the Mask). At this point in his career he gets to play quirky with abandon. I hope I get to that point soon in my career. Some people may already feel I’ve reached that quirky stage. I feel I can climb a bit higher in that regard. But back to the movie.

Sonic the Hedgehog was a good first movie of the year for me. Last year my first movie was Mary Poppins. I didn’t care too much for it. Although, I did tap along to some of those musical bits. I felt more awake for Sonic, however. Admittedly, it could have been the three lemonhead boxes and my sugared up brain. Yet, I have to admit this movie’s heart is what tugged at my brain and allowed me to like it. There does appear to be a sequel in its future based on the extra scene in the credits. If so, I hope the dog gets more scenes.
