Eh probably should of said my opinions on this subject here instead of the Sonic thread. Didn't like the dance scene, Altered Beast maybe and Sonic the Series & Knuckles.

I found the Siberian tavern scene to be my second least favourite scene in the movie. I found it rather "Well this movie is for kids, lets give them an obligatory dance scene with pop music.) I also found the whole thing rather cartoony with the granny knitting a pirate flag and the fish head saying "run". Isn't the whole point of Sonic and Tails being on Earth is a sense of realism?

When I first saw the pavonka guy, I thought he was going to turn into a werebear as a reference to Altered Beast.

That would of been so much cooler than a dance battle and would leave audience with a lot of questions that could be answered in an Altered Beast spin-off.

This scene and the wedding scene are definitely not for Sonic fans but more for general audiences.
Most of kids laughed like crazy on this scene in the cinema where I went and most adult laughed a lot at the wedding scene.
While it was cooler for SEGA fans if it was related to Altered Beast or other SEGA games, the movie's also trying to appeal general audiences too.
Who knows if any of them would be new Sonic fans later.
At least one of my kid's friend becoming a Sonic fan too after the movie and his favorite part was the dancing scene.
His favorite game is now Sonic Adventure 2 Battle, after playing two players mode with my kid.

That's fair, I just wish I didn't feel cringey with those scenes myself. For example the Siberian tavern was suppose to entertain the general audience, mostly the kids. Because of that I couldn't help but feel "Am I a grown man who is unironically watching a kids movie here?" Y'know, the scariest mid-life crisis question "Am I old?". I know the movie also needs to cater for an audience other than Sonic fans and it's popularity is that it hits well with kids and general audience. I just wish I didn't feel old or outdated whenever there's dancing or flossing.

I think it's not just limited to latest dancing trend and flossing, many things could make feel us old if we let them to.
May be just a kid innocently asking what pager, fax, or betamax is.

Sonic 2's Lee Majdoub had a plan to avoid stereotypes in casting



Quote
“Agent Stone got his own poster,” said an excited Majdoub during a phone call he took while strolling around Lost Lagoon recently.
“It was quite emotional. My family is so excited.
I didn’t think my name would be on it and for whatever reason it’s exciting to see your name and for my dad, being Lebanese, the family name means something.
I think in a lot of cultures it means something, but I think for him to see his family name on a poster was incredible,” said Majdoub, who has a long list of TV credits including The 100 and You Me Her.

Yeah, I probably wouldn't date anyone who don't know what a Dreamcast VMU is.

It makes me very happy how Sonic's movie is sort of bringing out the best of people involved with it.

Don't limit yourself like that.
If she's hot and kind, date her!

If the VMU was before her time I'd probably go to jail.

That's good. I especially like how positive it's actors and celebrities around it are. They don't regard it as "another job" or "another paycheck", they love Sonic and genuinely want to give it their all.

Depended on how far that "before" is.
VMU's really that old.

Yes, and it paid off positively.

The VMU is 23 years old. I wouldn't be above dating someone in their mid-twenties but earlier than that would pobably make me creepy.

Can't wait to see how it will go for Sonic 3 and Streets of Rage.
