Yes,No,Maybe So: "Sonic the Hedgehog"

by Tony Ruggio

One of these days big Hollywood will get a video-game adaptation right.Judging fromSonic's teaser trailer,one that has sent Twitter into a frothing hate-frenzy and earned more dislikes than likes on Youtube,November 8,2019 will not be that day.I don't know a thing about the Sonic the Hedgehog games though I vaguely remember playing them once or twice as a child.Until this week I had no idea the character had a discernible fanbase.That being said,there's something oddly intriguing about a project so ill-advised.

Let's do the Yes,No,or Maybe So treatment after the jump...

Beauty vs Beast: Won't You Remember Me

Jason fromMNPPhere on this chilly March afternoon thinking of leaving it all behind and boarding a train out to Montauk -- tomorrow marks the 15th anniversary of one of the Great Films of the new century (née millenium),Michel Gondry'sEternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind,which rescrambled our brains for the first time on March 19th 2004,and we've never been the same since.Have you watched it lately?I watch it basically once per year,which guarantees I have one great big sobbing session at least once per year.Anyway we've already done one of our "Beauty vs Beast"contestsfor the film's leads before,so today we'll dive a little deeper into the film's exceedingly fine stable of supporting players -- on one side we have the delectably weaselly Patrick (Elijah Wood) and on the other the more-confused-by-the-minute Mary (Kirsten Dunst),who both enrich the film's main romantic thrust in surprising and sad ways...

PREVIOUSLYY'all truly surprised me withlast week's contest that pitFilm Stars Don't Die in Liverpool's lead lovers against one another -- Jamie Bell took the lead early on and never looked back,taking 65% at the end;it's very rare for actresses to lose here on TFE!Why do you think it happened this time?SaidMareko:

"I'm #TeamGloria in life (what an underrated talent) but lean toward #TeamPeter in this movie.Annette and Jamie really are sublime together,and isn't it interesting that she did back-to-back movies set in 1979?Imagine Dorothea Fields and Gloria Grahame in the same universe,living a mere hour away from each other!"

Posterized: Dr.Seuss and "The Grinch"

by Nathaniel R

The children's book author Dr.Seuss (also known as Theodore S.Geisel) is such an icon part of popular culture that he's even had his own postage stamp.But did you know he was also a screenwriter?In addition to the screenplay of the fantasy family filmThe 5000 Fingers of Dr T(1953) he wrote the script for the Oscar winning documentaryDesign for Death(1947) which was a documentary about Japanese and what led to the attack on Pearl Harbor.Far outside the wheelhouse that was!But mostly when it comes to the screen when we think of Dr Seuss we think of the once-perennial TV airings ofHow the Grinch Stole Christmas.

The bulk of screen adaptations of Dr Seuss's work have been in the short film format which makes sense,given the short visual books he wrote.Of the many shorts based on his work the following were all nominated for Oscars:亚博主页The 500 Hats of Bartholomew Cubbins(1943),And to Think I Saw It on Mulberry Street(1944),Gerald McBoing-Boing(1950 - OSCAR WIN),andGerald McBoing!Boing!on Planet Moo(1956).One short based on his work,Daisy Head Mayzie(1995), was Emmy nominated.

But with the release ofThe Grinch(2018) today,let's look back on all the feature films (and the three most prominent TV specials) that are Dr Seuss related.How many have you seen and will you be seeing The Grinch?The posters are after the jump...

Mashablebadly seeded March Madness brackets are terrible storytelling

Tracking BoardTwice delayed X-Men adjacent movieThe New Mutantshas been a nightmare to make;Fox keeps changing their mind about what they want it to be.While we all might complain from time to time about Marvel Studios (who are far from perfect -- especially in regards to gender) at least they seem to know what they want every time and how to get there.Even if what they want has been a bit formulaic until recently.
