Watch out, kids! The Blue Blur’s messin’ up all the robots, in this CGI-infused comedy-adventure. It’s got Jim Carrey in it, and if you don’t know who that is, you’re young enough to make the target audience. But this is more than just high-speed hi-jinks: it’s a deeply involving tale about anthropomorphic loneliness and the redemptive power of cross-cultural friendship. Like rabid Nintendo and Sega fanboys playing on the same console (a Mega Drive, obviously). In fact, Sonic the Hedgehog is so spectacular, I haven’t even watched it – like the titular protagonist, I just know in my heart what’s good.
