Ahhhh! The nostalgia is real, people! Everyone remembers setting up their Sega console to play Sonic back in the day. Sending him (or her) in spin mode, collecting every coin you laid eyes on just so you could hear the little ping sound, defeating Dr. Robotnik at the end of a level. It was definitely one of my favorite games to play as a kid, so I’m excited to catch our favorite little hedgehog on the big screen! Aren’t you??
Check out the poster, trailer and images from the upcoming movie, SONIC THE HEDGEHOG – In theaters November 8, 2019!
SYNOPSIS: SONIC THE HEDGEHOG is a live-action adventure comedy based on the global blockbuster videogame franchise from Sega that centers on the infamously brash bright blue hedgehog. The film follows the (mis)adventures of Sonic as he navigates the complexities of life on Earth with his newfound – human – best friend Tom Wachowski (James Marsden). Sonic and Tom join forces to try and stop the villainous Dr. Robotnik (Jim Carrey) from capturing Sonic and using his immense powers for world domination. The film also stars Tika Sumpter and Ben Schwartz as the voice of Sonic.

As you can see – THE D TRAIN stars Jack Black and James Marsden. If you decide to watch the movie – you’ll see that there are quite a few faces you’ll recognize. It’s a pretty sweet ‘comedy’ cast.
THE D TRAIN is about a dude named Dan Landsman (Jack Black) – who in high school…wasn’t exactly the coolest kid in school. Now all grown up – he leads a few of his high school classmates on an adventure. What’s this adventure I speak of?! (lol) The adventure of putting their 20 year high school reunion together. One night…Dan sees a TV commercial – – in that commercial is Oliver Lawless (James Marsden) – the MOST popular guy from his high school!! He’s now the face of a national Banana Boat ad campaign. Dan is now on a mission – – to go to Los Angeles…find Oliver…and bring him back to the reunion. If all goes as planned – DAN will be the coolest guy in town. (lol)
My thoughts on THE D TRAIN…
THE GOOD! 🙂 I really liked this movie people. Let me just get this out of the way. When I asked my wife if she wanted to watch it. She says to me, “Who’s in in?” I say, “Jack Black.” She says, “Ahhhhh I don’t know. Jack Black can be really dumb.” I say, “Just watch it and be quiet woman!!” (Ok, I didn’t really say that part) Either way…after it was done – She liked it!! If you watch the trailer – – it just gives you a snippet of what really happens in this movie. (lol) Everyone in the movie was great. You will laugh. Be prepared though – – when watching this – – some of you might say, “WTF JUST HAPPENED??!” – – – just go with it. (lol) It gets pretty hilarious…then border line dark…then back to happy go lucky. (lol) Just wattccchhh the movie people. Hmmmmm…what else did I like. Oh. The soundtrack – the movie’s got some really good tunes. I also liked the 80’s feel I got – almost like a John Hughes movie. (lol) I’m old – what can I say. (lol) Oh…one more thing. James Marsden. I’m not exactly a fan of the dude – he just never stood out to me – but in THE D TRAIN. He’s solid. He’s officially on my radar…in a good way. (lol)
THE BAD! 😦 No complaints. I like it all. (lol)
I give THE D TRAIN… 4 out of 5 popcorns. Like I said before. I thought it was a really good movie and deserves a watch. It’s not your typical Jack Black movie that’s for sure. This one definitely shows his acting chops. Watch it people!
