Sonic the Hedgehog
Given the history of video game movies, you would be forgiven for expecting the worst of Sonic the Hedgehog. This is after all the movie that got delayed by almost a year because the original character design sparked fan outrage. Well, we’re pleasantly surprised to inform you that Sonic the Hedgehog is a action packed, family film for all ages.
Sonic is a super fast anthropomorphic hedgehog from another reality. When he draws the attention of the government by causing a blackout, Sonic must run from the evil Dr. Robotnik and his army of robots. With thrilling action and warmly funny dialog, Sonic is an unexpected treat.
The Prestige (2006)

Following a tragic accident a magic duo begin a years long rivalry of magic and madness. Giving away too much of the plot would ruin the best secrets The Prestige keeps up its sleeve. It also features an unbelievable cast including Hugh Jackman, Christian Bale, Michael Caine, and Scarlett Johansson.
