Sonic the Hedgehog

Rent it! It’s legit awesome.

Do you have kids? If you answered yes or no, you should rent Sonic the Hedgehog, starring James Marsden and Jim Carrey.

It’s about a hero and an evil genius. It’s an adventure. And, it’s awesome. I’ve watched it twice over the past two nights with my kids.

It almost makes up for my lifelong wish to own a Sega Genesis like my friend Joshua Holt did when we were kids. He wanted a Nintendo because of Mario. I wanted a Sega because of Sonic.
