That Pokemon movie not looking so bad right about now.
The first Blender movie doesn't look as horrifying at this.
>>679748Please tell me this is shopped.
>>679753I have no words, this is worse than some of the work post in this board
>>679748>alita>detective pikachu>dumboIs this the new normal? are they just going to keep using the realistic 3d tech to make horrifying cartoons that "stand out" and ends up disgusting everyone?
>>679762dont forget the new will smith movie where they de-aged him and have his younger self hunt to kill his older self
>>679762i think it's a little unfair to compare those films with this masterpiece
Holy shit I honestly thought those 'leaks' before were just a jokeBut that said, I loved everything in this trailer except for Sonic's look.I dunno lads, this movie might win me over. It looks unironically silly and fun.
>>679748I don't know what you guys are whining about. The movie looks dumb, but fun.
I would have expected this to be a Sony Pictures movie
>>679771Funnily enough, that was the original plan. But then Sega took their business to Paramount.
>>679762>>alita>>detective pikachuWest just can't into anime, that's why they look so bad. Western artists don't understand anime and how anime characters should look or move.The Pikachu movements, with all those weird faces that Dreamworks characters always do don't fit with his clearly japanese design.And Alita is just this but in 3D.
>>679753It looks so narmy. I think I'm in love. It looks so bad and retarded, the charm is plucking my eyeballs out. I love it.
>>679760if this exact model was posted here it would get horrified responses
>>679773>>679762I saw Alita in IMAX 3D and its actually the best (western) Anime adaption that exist. I didn't expect to like that movie that much but since i was invited into the cinema i went anyways and was pleasantly surprised. Its not a great movie (just good), it has some serious flaws, but the look of Alita wasn't one of them. She looked great in nearly every single shot with a slight detour into uncanny valley in a couple of scenes. Besides that, the movie is absolutely gorgeous and the VFX are really top notch. I haven't seen such a good integration of VFX into live action since Mad Max and the action was similarly spectacular and beautifully choreographed, framed and edited. I didn't know Rodriguez had it still in him, but its easily his best movie since Sin City.
>>679773would totally drink a beer with you, anon.
>>679748GOOD LORD WHAT IS HAPPENING IN THERE
>>679748wtf seriously or is this some fan movie
>>679781>the bestWhich in the end still means "pretty fucking shit"
>>679773Is that an excerpt from 3DGuy's book?
>>6797623DCG is the wet dream of the movie industry that became reality.They can save money by not having to have every role played by some actual actor and they don't have to do expensive drawing for each frame like in the cartoon days.Designing and getting the initial 3D models done is a bit of work but everything down the pipeline from there can be outsourced to the cheapest labor places.3DCG also enables fuck cheap sequels because then they don't even have to make the models from scratch and can just start cranking out shit without any limit. It's literally printing money for them.
>>679748Daily reminder that this movie was made with Maya and Nuke
>>679836So basically like 99,9% of all movies? Is this supposed to be an argument against Maya and Nuke? If yes, then it makes you look stupid.
>>679838Not the OP you're replying too but with the consistent shitposting on this board about the hate towards blender, I would say that this is a fair mockery of the argument on this board. Even a multi-million dollar movie with triple A software backing it, can still turn to shit. I reminds me of the whole argument of it's not what you say, it's how you say it... It's not the tools you use, it's the artist behind said tools.
>>679836Geez, imagine that little Sonic covered instead in Cycles-rendered "fur".
>>679781>I saw Alita in IMAX 3D and its actually the best (western) Anime adaption that existNah my dudeSpeed Racer takes that spot
>>679773no you're wrong the west can into anime its just that jews can't into art
>>679753I can get a hint, folks.I´ll be back.
the way it couldve been if they werent using shit tier labour
>>679920is this a jojo reference
2D is so much superior than 3Dhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J5BRLPitkSU
>>679920The right one looks good. The other looks like a goddam furrysuit.
>>679748Anthropomorphising the hell out of a based character design.Everyone involved should feel bad.
>>679920Right looks like shit. His legs are twigs and the head is way too big and heavy.
>>679946Yeah, it's Sonic.
>>679946do you not know what the character Sonic the Hedgehog looks like?
>>679902Lets put it this way: The west now has 2 good anime adaptions. I too liked Speed Racer very much (but i also saw it the first time on acid, so my opinion of the movie is distorted).
>>679946Twigs but at least with defined knees which aren't hilariously close to the feet.
I always thought he was wearing stylized glasses to protect his eyes when going FAST, hence the scrambled egg eyes.Missed opportunity to make him look like the original but also kinda "realistic" when he put off the glasses for a moment.
>>679751I'm a blendet and big buck bunny is fucking horrifying.
In all seriousness.. don't they have a fucking concept team to play out with proportions and overall character design before giving that shit to their 3D team? And the CGI supervisors don't attempt to make it better at all? It's hard to believe they have dozens of rounds of critical reviews before moving forward with such a disaster....Sonic looks like a teen in a shit costume, straight out of a low-budget pajeet fan project.Hollywood, if you insist on shoving a million remakes/reboots/adaptations down our throats, at least make your garbage visually pleasing... it's just as costly to animate a good looking character as a bad one; there's no reason to try to get away with the most embarrassing bare minimum.
>>680038oh yeah also, the director made nothing else than this retarded thing before Sonichttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CE5HNyVJGos
>>680038right actually looks worse
>>679976>at least with defined knees which aren't hilariously close to the feetholy fuck cannot unseehow can they fuck up that bad........
>>680039Didn't he also direct Deadpool and work on Love Death + Robots? And his studio did cutscenes for Sonic '06 and other video games and Universal Studios' Simpsons Ride.>>680038From what I heard, Sega was at least partially responsible for this nightmare design-wise.
>>680045He did none of those things you mentionedhttps://www.imdb.com/name/nm1733778/
>>680039>>680046oh dear god........
>>679768Is this Jim Carey Grinch all over again?
Daily reminder that this movie was made with Maya and Nuke
>>680046>https://www.imdb.com/name/nm1733778/Oh, I thought you meant Tim Miller.
>>680049That's totally irrelevant to what we're discussing here
also Sonics supposed to have spikes on his back not fur
>>679748I'm not very familiar with how the movie industry works. I take it since they dropped the trailer everything about his design and such is finalize and it's to late to pull out and make adjustments because money has already been spent?
>>680051no, trust me. for this board, that is 120% a neccessary reminder
>>680057you just answered your own question
Daily reminder that this movie couldn't probably be made with Blender...which may be a good thing.
>>680057pretty much>>680060>>680079see >>680051
>>680045>From what I heard, Sega was at least partially responsible for this nightmare design-wise.why would they abandon decades of character design? i feel like they just sold the license for cash and are legally unable to pull it.
>>680050>Tim MillerThis guy isnt involved in the movie at all
>>680083poor baby can't handle a joke when its thrown back in your face huh? thanks for showing your weakness you pussy.
>>680079psssst....hey anon, this is your daily reminder that this movie was made with Maya and nuke
>>680095I couldn't give less of a fuck, lol.
>>680049>>680079>>680094>>680095why can't we get one single thread going without this fucking cancer?
>>680098Did I really hurt your feelings that bad? Do you really expect me not to take a huge shit on this moment right now because this board does the exact same thing with Blender all the time? Shit man, you know you have to be over 18 to be on this website right? And if you are over 18 and still feel this strongly, then damn. Thanks for being such a weakling and helping the cause :)
>>680099>imagine being this insecure about the software you use
>>680100>>680101lmao imagine being this butthurt over some words. I hate to say it but you guys are just proving him right at this point
>>680103You're the one putting the most effort and writing the longest posts.
>>680104Daily reminder that this movie was made with Maya and Nuke
>>680107you make it worse for yourself by responding and taking the bait
>>680108Nah, it's quite embarrassing to see the blendlet missing the point entirely, as usual.
>>679748Watch This or Dora and the Lost City of Gold?
>>680109and yet, you keep responding and taking the bait. Good job snowflake. You once again keep proving my point.
>>680109what was your point btw? cause all I see is some butthurt child responding to me because you can't take a joke and want this to be the hill you die on lol
>>680112>trolls and insults people for no reason>"hurr durr you can't take a joke"meh, you're just an asshole mate
>>680115What is with the victim complex on this board? All of 4chan really. I love that you're trying to turn it around on me and flip the script yet, that's all this website does

>>680089I thought he was producing? Did he get removed, or did he realize this was going to be a shitshow and ditched the project?
Hear me out but i'm pretty sure this movie is supposed to be bad. Taking a beloved character that everyone knows and loves and making it look like shit will get everyone to talk about it and get a lot of coverage on how it looks like shit. A lot of people are already talking about it and a lot of people are going to see it since it'll be like watching a trainwreck. Don't tell me this movie isn't going to make money because it is, Despite the 1 star rating it will get this movie is going to be financially successful
>>679748It looks like the fucking annoying orange.
>>680163Fuck you, cannot unsee, lmao.
>>680161god fucking damn it.i hope they don't change it too much.it looks so bad, i love it.
>>680167i guess they won't, the movie releases this year... changes too drastic to the design = modifying the rig = redoing animationthough I guess they could just focus on the face and reanimate the eyes and mouth, it could fix a lot imo
>>680161so theyre just going to redo the whole fucking thing? how could you even change things this late in the game?
>>680174It's still half a year away. They can keep most of the animation and just apply it to the new character model. Of course not everything, but a lot. Honestly wouldn't surprise me if they planned this all along for more media attention.
>>680174I really hate to say it but they might of had this planned all along. i know of some studio heads and marketing departments that drool over campaigns like this.
>>679769Jim Carrey as Robotnik looks fucking dope. He's clearly hamming it up and having a great timeSonic looks like dogsgit tho.
>>680174It's possible that they had planned this from the start to generate attention/discussion, and have already got the "real" sonic done so they can be praised for listening to fans.
>>680205>>680189/pol/ tier conspiracy theory
>>680205Don't ever attribute to malice what could be attributed to stupidity
>>679748Why does Sonic look like a small man wearing a blue fur suit?
>>680238>linking to fallacies on wikipedia, completely unironicallyholy shit fuck off back to plebbit. thanks
>>680235I'm not that anon, but I have to ask, are you just pretending to be stupid? This is literally a marketing strategy taught in business school and gets used everywhere all the time. I learned about dozens of hollywood cases of this in my first semester.You're probably some overweight NEET with only a few patches of hair left at the age of 21 who is just bitter at life because he'll never get laid and is too ugly and introverted to find work or be included in society. Get fucked kiddo.
>>680511>I learned about dozens of hollywood cases of this in my first semester.Can you mention some? I'm genuinely interested in learning about their strategies.
>>680512The biggest and most successful film my professor showed the class as an example of this was Forest Gump, but in that case the negative feedback came from the producers because when they screened it to critics and investors before the public even knew it existed, it got flamed really hard for its "controversial" themes, but the studio had already known ahead of time that this might be the case, and so they filmed variations of some of the edgier scenes with different dialogue. The movie barely got made in fact, because even after massive changes to the script at nearly the very end of the pipe, producers still weren't happy with it and just had to bite the bullet. Luckily it panned out for them pretty well and now it's like a legendary film.With this Sonic film, it's obviously even more overt since they are pandering to the public. Back when films like Forest Gump were made, things like twitter and facebook didn't exist. Social media wasn't a thing, so you couldn't get away with this sort of tactic back then. Now it's a lot more common, and most studios have "fallbacks" to scenes or aspects of a film that they expect to generate controversy.
>>680515>>680511lmao look at this dumbass. He thinks there's a conspiracy involving hundreds, possibly thousands of people, none of which would come forward anonymously in the age of the internet to reveal it. This is almost comedic
>>680540>marketing strategies and modern business tactics are a conspiracylmao look at this dumbass. He thinks hundreds, possibly thousands of people would be aware of or even care about what management thinks or does with their assets as long as they get paid and a spot in the credits so they can move on to the next project.
It's just hollywood being obsessed with the pixar eye look, easier to animate too. Lets throw procedural hair all over it and just change the color in places rather than change grain. It's honestly all just down to laziness.

>>679821>>679773I-I recognize this style from here...
>>681029I never asked for this
>>681029Would buttbang, how did you make it go from abomination to sex symbol?
Ugh i just wanted a good sonic movie but this sucks dick
>>681029Fucking hell, man
>>681029...and the degenerates come out of the woodwork.Like a clockwork.
>>681054It's called eroidolia, a phenomenon by which vaguely hinted sexual features get amplified by the perceiver, and turned into a powerfully erotic interpretation of the perceived object.
>>681077>eroidoliaGoogle turns up nothing, but if it's real, it would explain so much fucking shit, like how innocent shit like Mario or Sonic or MLP gets sexualized through the roof, but actual porny shit like, I dunno, Stripperella maybe, gets like no porn at all.
>we could make him look exactly how people remember him OR we could make him look like a low budget rocket raccoon with blue dyeDECISIONS DECISIONS
>>681086Nah, the term is made-up. But I do think some mechanism like that may exist. I wouldn't be surprised if there are psychological studies about that kind of effect. Pic unrelated, just something out of a 10-sec search.
>>679773>West just can't into anime, that's why they look so bad.Explain your average Japanese live action adaptations looking like dogshit.
>>681029>>681145That just goes to show you that you can make anything female and people instantly forget how badly designed it is because of bias towards women.
Hey anons. I finished busting a fat wank and I was wondering about this at the very moment.
>>681152Shoehorning different art forms into each other will always turn out disastrous. This is why I can't take video game movies seriously.
