While the sports games were truly revolutionary compared to their competitors, there was one character who defined the system: Sonic the Hedgehog. Now, fresh from a strong run at the box office, Sonic the Hedgehog is available to watch at home On Demand. When I sat down with the film in the theater, I wondered aloud if it made sense to release a Sonic film in 2020. […]

Though time has passed, Mike Lowrey (Smith) is still the ladies’ man with the fast car and large, um, ego. He still partners with Marcus […]
