Our bandwidth is getting hit hard today because a lot of people are watching this video. If you are having any troubles, check back later.
May 28, 2013 at 12:04 am
It finally happened…
May 28, 2013 at 12:08 am
Always wanted to do this: SECOND!
May 28, 2013 at 7:23 am
I didn’t think it was needed because NC did something on it. But hey, I guess everything needs different views on it (no matter how similar they may be).
May 28, 2013 at 1:31 pm
It was needed. Some of us don’t like listening to a grown man screech into the microphone in place of being entertaining.
May 28, 2013 at 2:28 pm
I HATE everything with NC and his group of copycats and wannabes. AVGN is the original, and much much more professional.
May 28, 2013 at 6:28 pm
So you’re saying anyone who’s gimmick is always being angry is immediately a copycat of AVGN? So Lewis Black? He’s a rip-off of AVGN? BOTH of them are always, “screeching into the microphone”. They’re both always yelling and angry. THAT’S THEIR THING. I like both of them, but don’t immediately call Critic an AVGN copycat because his thing is being angry. You’re just going to start another IG war, and do we really want that?
May 28, 2013 at 6:30 pm
P.S. Yeah, AVGN is more professional… which is why he resorts to crapping on games. I’m not trying to say I don’t like AVGN, just don’t make dumb comments like that.
May 28, 2013 at 9:56 pm
This is James Rolfe doing a review, not his character The Angry Video Game Nerd. There’s nothing gimmick about this review – it’s straight up his personal opinion.
May 29, 2013 at 12:02 am
I’m talking about how he said AVGN is more professional. I’m not talking about James OOC. CITO said that he hates NC and his site for being “copycats” and that AVGN is more professional.
May 29, 2013 at 12:30 am
he is more pro in this one. he can give a legit review without resorting to some gimmick schtick like tgwtg has to. James knows his shit 😛
May 29, 2013 at 5:11 am
To be completely honest, I’m glad that James decided to review this. It’s nice getting his perspective on it. I’ve seen NC’s review on it as well, but the “movie review” thing in a goofy way is NC’s style. James’ way to review movies is more on a…casual level, maybe? His “goofy way” is when he rips on bad games. Personally, I like how James reviews movies.
May 31, 2013 at 1:37 pm
Yeah but can you really take most of NC reviews that serious? Most of the time he’s just making jokes and in that review he took a ton of things out of context just for comic relief. Like them being bros. as well as father and son. It’s common in stories for the older sibling to look after the younger when the parents are out of the picture. Or in the police station when his name is revealed, it wasn’t an Abbot & Costello routine but through editing he turned it into one. So I don’t know if you can call his review an actual review.
August 2, 2013 at 6:53 pm
What, only one person should review any given thing? Like calling dibs? Do also take into account that not everyone watches NC. But you may speak entirely for yourself, and forgive me if you aren’t saying “Why does this exist? NC already did it”.
May 12, 2014 at 12:39 pm
So, what you’re saying is, MSNBC shouldn’t report on the news because CNN already reports on the news? James has a right to have fans and the so does NC, and no one has a right to say what either of them can or can’t do videos on. Classic Simpsons-did-it-first syndrome.
May 29, 2013 at 4:39 pm
james i know that you don’t like the 1998 version of godzilla, but you got to give it credit, most of the monster movies out there today are complete crap, the 1998 godzilla at least tried to make it good
May 30, 2013 at 12:11 am
No, it really didn’t.
When I think of “complete crap” monster movies, fake Godzilla springs immediately to mind.
May 30, 2013 at 3:55 am
The only reason they made it was to capitalize on the name. If anything, it was more like “The Beast From 20,000 Fathoms” than “Gojira (Godzilla).” That’s why they’re remaking it a second time using the true G-man. It comes out next June. The trailer was so fuckin’ dark (in the Christopher Nolan Batman kinda way)! I don’t think I’ve ever seen a trailer that scary before (It was only shown at Comic-Con 2012)!
May 30, 2013 at 4:02 am
Ironic, isn’t it? King Kong gets remade, the remake fell short of the original, so they remade it again more properly years later. Now, the same is happening to good ol’ Godzilla. I guess the rivalry will never die. The legacy continues. The fire burns. Who will win the remake wars (My vote is Godzilla)? I want to know what James’ take is on the new remake. I bet it’ll blow us all out of the water. From what I saw, I expect nothing short of amazing.
May 30, 2013 at 4:07 am
It’s being produced by Legendary Pictures & Toho Productions, and is being directed by Gareth Edwards, who did both “Monsters” & “Pacific Rim.” This is gonna ROCK!!! Quick date change: It should be released May 16, 2014. It even has a cameo by Akira Takarada, who played Ogata, the main character of the Japanese version of the 1954 film! SWEEEEETTTT!
May 30, 2013 at 10:29 am
Um… there are monster movies today that are pretty good, even back in 98′ when the film was released Toho was still making monster movies. Grant it yes, there were very few American monster movies released in mainstream cinema. The 98′ Godzilla movie consist of poor CG, a cast of Simpsons voice actors, Matthew Broderick, a bad script and some of the worst pseudo-science ever put on screen.
June 3, 2013 at 9:48 pm
You are going to burn in Hell for saying that. Godzilla 1998 is an abomination to mankind, you should feel ashamed of yourself.
June 4, 2013 at 9:05 am
Pacific Rim is directed by Guillermo Del Toro.
June 5, 2013 at 1:20 pm
I hope your family gets killed, any pets you have get skinned alive, and then you get raped, nailed to a cross, and burned alive. That will teach you for liking 1998.
February 13, 2014 at 6:21 am
I still think the 1998 Godzilla film is good.. Iwatched it in theaters back in the 90’s and liekd it… i still watch once in a while and like it.. it never seems bad to me.. i love the Japanese Godzilla movies for all their cheesiness, but the 1998 Godzilla movie is still a film that I consider a cult classic
March 22, 2014 at 2:56 am
The 1998 Godzilla is probably just as mediocre as Super Mario Bros. I like Godzilla Movies. But i don’t see most of them as Masterpiece of Cinema and i Dont find Godzilla to be some complex character either.
August 11, 2013 at 1:40 pm
you have to work and use the computer and internet, and if you can do that and dedicate some time each day then you can do this with no problem. I have been working with this for a month and have made over $2,000 already. let me know if you need more help… www.Bay89.CoM

May 28, 2013 at 12:15 am
about dam time, heating up the popcorn before I watch!!
May 28, 2013 at 12:19 am
It’s kind of funny…
I don’t hate this movie. I actually enjoy it when I watch it. There’s a good bit of humor in it, even if the plot is absolutely horrible. When the two brothers get their brain size increased and become smarter is actually quite hilarious when the dialogue begins for the scene.
May 28, 2013 at 12:25 am
I would buy a game based on this movie if they made it now.
July 3, 2016 at 8:53 pm
Some dedicated group of fans on the “SMB Film Fans” forum were working on such a thing some time ago. The thread about it was pretty in-depth…As I recall, it was like a side-scrolling RPG with some action elements.
In fact, I remember suggesting, when I posted to that forum, that the Stomper Boots should have a “rocketman”-like mechanic where you have to set the angle and thrust of the jump.
May 28, 2013 at 12:47 am
YES! So excited for this. For some reason the videos of James in the video store seem to be some of my favorites.
May 29, 2013 at 5:13 am
I agree. Even though I like his AVGN gimmick (sometimes…I really hate the crapping type stuff), I really enjoy videos he does where he’s just himself. James. I love his countdowns and his reviews where we’re seeing him give his opinion on things. No gimmicks thrown in.
May 28, 2013 at 12:48 am
I like how you said that this movie was just like the 1998 Zilla movie in that it didn’t have anything to do with the source material.
May 30, 2013 at 11:01 am
nice collection https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HmEIInuVcCU
May 28, 2013 at 12:49 am
The movie was not as bad as everyone made it out to be. I watched this in theaters back in ’93 when I was 7. It was fun to watch. I believe that they used dinosaurs a lot because Super Mario World was still kind of new and it takes place in Dinosaur Land. I think the boots were based off of the boot power from Mario Bros. 3. I still enjoy it today.
May 28, 2013 at 4:55 am
Damn, how I HATE this piece of shit movie! One of the worst disappointments of my life. Far worse than Street Fighter and Turtles 3 together!
May 29, 2013 at 5:20 am
Oh god! Street Fighter, how could I forget! That was a horrible movie! lol Terrible adaptation! Turtles 3…though bad and the worst of the original trilogy (imo) had some…redeeming qualities…maybe… but SF was just…terrible. ><
May 28, 2013 at 12:58 am
It’s not a great movie by any means, but there’s just something enjoyable about the surreal world it creates. Definitely a guilty pleasure of mine.
May 28, 2013 at 1:12 am
I really enjoyed this movie as a kid. Looking back, it still looks awesome and enjoyable.
May 28, 2013 at 1:14 am
Koopa wants to merge two realms and rule it? Well… two words…. MORTAL KOMBAT!!!!!
May 28, 2013 at 1:29 am
Been wanting to comment on this movie for a long time. Sooo much wrong with this one. Watched it once, and I was scarred for life! (Okay, not really) 🙂 To be honest, they badly mangled this one. The first mistake that they made (aside from making it) is that they botched the universe badly. They just took bits and pieces of the Mario universe, and mashed them up into something that was a disappointing mess. I expect to see Mario jumping and squashing goombas, not some strange sci-fi flick. I remember the one scene where they encounter that fungus/mushroom in the jar, or whatever, and then nothing! It served no purpose whatsoever. If you’re going to make a movie like this, at least be faithful to the original!
Also, they made a huge mistake with the format. They should have made it an animated film, that way they could have made a movie that looks closer to the Mario universe. In short, if it had been a movie for a new franchise, it probably wouldn’t be that bad. But as a movie based off a video game, it falls far short of the mark.
May 30, 2013 at 4:21 am
Still, you have to try to reason with it in some way. After all, this is the first live action game-based movie EVER. They were still learning. Every live action movie to first kick off a genre, like science fiction, tends to move away from the source material in favor of their own concept (eg Frankenstein). It takes a good amount of time before they can finally get their footing. But yeah. This movie wouldn’t have worked even if it DIDN’T have anything to do with The Super Mario Bros.
May 28, 2013 at 1:44 am
I love movie Night =)
May 28, 2013 at 2:07 am
Okay it was fucking awesome!! haha
May 28, 2013 at 2:09 am
It is easier and cheaper to make a cityesque world than a fantasy world.
May 28, 2013 at 2:35 am
Stop right there James, last year Miyamoto called bullshit that one, Mario Mario and Luigi Mario were last names invented just for the movie.
You never gonna see ’em featured in a game because they don’t have last names.
Go search the interview on Gameinformer.
Wait here’s the exctract:
Some people claim that Mario and Luigi’s last name is “Mario.” Are their names officially Mario Mario and Luigi Mario?
Shigeru Miyamoto: This is an old story, but Hollywood did a film version of the Mario Bros. many years back. There was a scene in the script where they needed a last name for the characters. Somebody suggested that, because they were the Mario Bros., their last name should be Mario. So, they made him “Mario Mario.” I heard this and laughed rather loudly. Of course, this was ultimately included in the film. Based on the film, that’s [how] their names ended up. But, just like Mickey Mouse doesn’t really have a last name, Mario is really just Mario and Luigi is really just Luigi.
May 28, 2013 at 1:49 pm
That’s what I said in the video. The last names were from the movie.
May 30, 2013 at 12:14 am
I think the “Super Show” cartoon did it first, actually.
June 2, 2013 at 10:16 am
Actually they do use mario mario in paper mario soo…
May 28, 2013 at 2:51 am
Meh, yeah the movie was okay. I didn’t really care how close it was to the game though, not then or now.
Thanks for video James. I love your movie reviews.
May 28, 2013 at 3:34 am
I feel like you are stretching to find nice things to say about this movie. The Nintendo power AVGN episode gave me the impression that you were disappointed by it when it first came out, but in this review I got the impression you liked it. I realize AVGN is a ‘character’, but for the most part the anecdotes are based on your real life (especially in that particular episode).
May 28, 2013 at 1:50 pm
That’s because I finally watched it again. I hadn’t seen it fully since the theater in 1993. Like I said in the video “I needed time to get myself in the right mindset.”
May 29, 2013 at 10:11 am
OH that’s understandable. Strange to think that you hadn’t re-watched it in 20 years! I guess you could say the movie aged like wine, if that wine was mixed with donkey piss.
May 28, 2013 at 4:06 am
Nintendo has never revealed Mario’s full name, stating only that it was not “Mario Mario” despite the implication of the Mario Bros. series’ title, its use in the live-action film adaptation, and information given in the Prima official Guidebook to Mario and Luigi: Superstar Saga.
May 28, 2013 at 4:14 am
the movie to me is like what i would expect to see if mario had done a broadway play if that makes any sense…and IM GLAD you pointed out that how back then it was all DINOSAURS and now its all ZOMBIES…i said that exact thought to myself about a year or so ago im like zombies are like how dinosaurs were
May 28, 2013 at 4:49 am
I remember seeing this in the theater and just thinking, “What just happened?” Thanks for the review and trip down memory lane, James!
May 28, 2013 at 5:01 am
i love this Movie. i watched it again last week. and yes it is not the story of SM Bros.but it was the first real videogame Movie and i will nver feoget how i felt about it the first time i saw it.
May 28, 2013 at 5:04 am
p.s mario had a love intrest in this Movie to james
May 28, 2013 at 5:20 am
It’s incredible, but do you know that in the Italian version of the movie (maybe all European edits, I don’t know) the ending was cut out? They cut like 5 minutes of it! The movie ends right when they celebrate after Koopa is defeated! We didn’t get to see the king turning back, Mario&Luigi returning home Luigi kissing Daisy and the scene back at home! It’s absurd! I think they wanted to remove the cliffhanger, but the goodbye scene was too sad, so they had to end it before, but wow.
Anyway about the cliffhanger, Mario says “I believe”, like when talking about aliens, so could it be that the next movie would have an alien invasion? Maybe an adaptation of Super Mario Land?
May 28, 2013 at 5:50 am
I saw the move in theaters, had the movie on VHS when I was little and i got it again on DVD a few years ago. It’s a pretty good movie in my opinion. not perfectly following the games but it’s still pretty fun overall and funny too. If you have someone watch the movie without letting them see the name or having them know what Mario Bros. is, then they’ll probably enjoy the film better then others.. Though i’m a Mario Bros. game fan and I liked the Mario movie too. All things consider it’s a pretty good film. Think i’ll watch it again later
May 28, 2013 at 6:22 am
Nice review, James! BUT! I thought you would mention Robert Zemeckis or Alan Silvestri role and other works, so many other people would really consider to actually watch de movie!
May 28, 2013 at 7:16 am
I know Silvestri composed the score but what does Zemeckis has to do with this?
May 28, 2013 at 6:36 am
I’m sorry, but there is not one positive thing I can say about this movie. I never saw it as a child because it never came to the Netherlands, so there is no nostalgic value. And aside from that there is nothing about this movie I respect. The Super Mario Bros. Super Show has proven that live action Mario Bros can ACTUALLY be decent. Sure, those segments were cheesy as fuck, but it WORKED. It was BELIEVABLE. This movie on the other hand is a piece of crap. I knew about this movie before I saw this review, and I consciously decided to never see it because I was afraid it might taint my image of the Mario Bros. I knew this review would include sequences, but still I hesitantly decided to watch this, because it’s James. And now I know even better that I never, ever, ever want to see it, even though secondly, it could never taint my image of the Mario Bros., because these guys aren’t the Mario Bros. It’s the same as any piece of shit NES game that has nothing to do with the movie it’s made from and just has the name of the movie slapped on it.
Also just on a side note, I thought the TMNT live action movie was horrible too, as well as the live action TV series “The Next Mutation”. Live action movies about these kind of videogames just do not work.
May 28, 2013 at 6:43 am
It’s funny because I actually watched the movie a week before james did this review and I agree that’s it’s a great movie (not the best in the world but hey) if you forget that it’s supposed to be a Super Mario Bros. movie
May 28, 2013 at 6:45 am
You guys know that “Koopa” in Polish means “shit” ? 🙂
btw. Great review, looking forward to watch new ones
May 28, 2013 at 6:52 am
you Need to do a Movie Review of 1982 White DOG’
& Deathrow Gameshow’ & Christmas on Division Street.
May 28, 2013 at 7:00 am
here’s my thoughts on the movie, when I was a kid I stumbled upon it in a video store, I had never even heard of it before and my reaction was “holy shit, they made a Mario Bros movie!?” right away I rented it and watched it at home
and believe it or not, I enjoyed it, for whatever reason I seemed to right away understand what the movie was going for, this was the “badass” version of SMB just like the TMNT movie and because of that it didn’t bother me that it wasn’t more of a literal adaption
and now, 20 years later, after all the other video game movies that have come out since, the Super Mario Brothers is a freakin’ masterpiece compared to the other ones, especially any Uwe Boll ones
here’s why, most games are already heavily inspired by movies right? so when you turn the game into a movie what you get is this copy of a copy feel that only results in a bland or terrible movie (take the Resident Evil movies for example), but Super Mario Brothers was obviously not inspired by any movie and in turn the movie is doing it’s own thing, the creativity on display with the “Dinohattan” setting and whatnot is a hell of a lot more than you’d get in any other video game movie, that’s for sure
so while the movie is certainly not great, it’s decent
May 28, 2013 at 7:01 am
After all this time, at last you review this!
May 28, 2013 at 7:05 am
Oh my Lord… Was always curious if you’d cave and do this. Guess it wasn’t for lack of wanting to 🙂 nice review!
May 28, 2013 at 7:13 am
I can’t see how you can think a movie is “decent” when the main actor himself has ACKNOWLEDGED it is a piece of shit and the worst thing he ever did.
May 28, 2013 at 7:14 am
This says it ALL: Bob Hoskins has spoken critically of Super Mario Bros., saying that it was “the worst thing I ever did” and that “the whole experience was a nightmare” in a 2007 interview with The Guardian. In another interview with The Guardian, Hoskins answered Super Mario Bros. to three of the questions he was asked, “What is the worst job you’ve done,” “What has been your biggest disappointment,” and “If you could edit your past, what would you change?”
John Leguizamo also admitted in 2007 that he too disliked his role as Luigi in the film, and expressed dissatisfaction with the film’s direction. He also said in his biography that both he and Bob Hoskins did not enjoy working on the film, frequently getting drunk to go through it, knowing that it would turn out bad.
Dennis Hopper was also disparaging of the production, “It was a nightmare, very honestly, that movie. It was a husband-and-wife directing team who were both control freaks and wouldn’t talk before they made decisions. Anyway, I was supposed to go down there for five weeks, and I was there for 17. It was so over budget.”
May 28, 2013 at 7:19 am
I got to see this movie at a special event at the El Capitan theater in Los Angeles back in May 1993. Being 10, nearly 11 years old, I wound up enjoying the movie for what it was, a comedy-adventure movie for kids loosely based on the Super Mario Bros. intellectual property. Like James, I was also a Nintendo Power kid growing up, and I do distinctly remember all the hype Nintendo Power put into this movie. Now, I may have been a *little* disappointed that the film didn’t have more to do with the game, but being a kid I found *every* *single* *little* *reference* that the movie made to the game. Even the little innocuous things that most people missed simply because I was a kid that really wanted a Super Mario Bros. movie.
That said, 20 years later (my god, has it already been that long?) I can still say that I enjoy watching this film, if ONLY because of nostalgia. If you didn’t grow up with this movie, you probably won’t like it.
May 28, 2013 at 7:28 am
May 28, 2013 at 7:47 am
I have seen this film for the first time months ago online and I agree with you on that it should be a different movie. It didn’t seemed to look like Super Mario Brothers to me except for some references. I am happy you finally got around reviewing it and I fully agree on almost everything you said. It is not a great movie, but it is worth a viewing.
May 28, 2013 at 7:54 am
I never disliked this movie. When I saw it in the theater, it just left me scratching my head, though I probably watched it a further five times when it came out on video. It’s one of my guilty pleasures. At the time I thought Bob Hoskins was a perfect choice for Mario. Upon re-watching I realized it was more faithful than was immediately apparent, and all the effects were pretty awesome. Though it does use some computer morphing effects, it’s kind of a lost relic of the last gasp of practical effects movies before CGI came and ruined everything.
May 28, 2013 at 8:08 am
Great take on this film, I saw it myself on TV when I was a kid and I have that kind of nostalgic look on it that I was dissapointed in it being a Mario film as it seemed to have very little to do with the game but at the same time it had that great cinematography look and style of earlier films I enjoy. So I find your take on it a pretty valid one, great review James!
May 28, 2013 at 8:19 am
One of the writers of this movie ended up being beaten to death and fed to sharks in jamaica. http://www.hamilton78.com/class_profile.cfm?member_id=993985

May 28, 2013 at 8:39 am
really? the Nostalgia Critic already did this
May 28, 2013 at 8:56 am
u want Godzilla watch the Nostalgia Critic
May 31, 2013 at 1:06 am
James already reviewed every one of the Godzilla films, including the 1998 American version, so it would be pointless, since I’m already here. “Cinemassacre’s Monster Madness: Godzillathon.” Godzilla (1954) through Godzilla: Final Wars.
May 28, 2013 at 8:58 am
I waited EONS to see this review. Im glad James made a very fair review out of it. I liked this movie back then and i like it now. Its like James said, just forget its an adaptation and you will enjoy it because its damn good.
May 28, 2013 at 9:02 am
I swear I’m the only person I know that actually likes this movie. I’m not saying it’s a good movie, but it reminds me of my childhood (for better or worse) and I like that. I can sit through the whole thing with a smile on my face. Thanks for some memories.
May 28, 2013 at 9:34 am
Great of you to have called them out on the chimpanzee bullshit.
Chimps are our cousins, not ancestors.
I actually love this movie 🙂

May 28, 2013 at 9:59 am
…check out “Pump up the Volume”… =D
May 28, 2013 at 10:05 am
I didn’t like it that much when it first came out, but now it’s one of my favorite movies from that time period. It’s goofy and funny and certainly very enjoyable.
May 28, 2013 at 10:07 am
Great review James !
May 28, 2013 at 11:03 am
Excellent and in depth review! Really enjoyed it!
What an awesome, awesome review. You have such a knack for finding those obscure features in a movie and the way you present the whole thing is phenomenal.
May 28, 2013 at 11:12 am
I didn’t see the movie when it came out in fact I didn’t see it till 19 years later and I LOVED IT! It portrayed the Mario Bros. as the bad asses I hoped they were. The cartoon was campy as hell and the characters were a little annoying but I hated how they made Luigi. Tall and a total chicken shit. We all hated scrappy do, what made us think the opposite was any better? And believe it or not there is a sequel coming. Just not in movie format but as an online comic, this is t a fan fiction it’s written by the original screen writer. Go to smbmovie.com for more info.
May 28, 2013 at 11:49 am
I can’t believe it! How could David L. Snyder go from Blade Runner, my favorite movie, to the insulting Super Mario Bros. movie?
May 28, 2013 at 12:42 pm
I liked it the first time I watched it, and still pop it in occasionally 🙂
May 28, 2013 at 12:50 pm
I don’t think this Movie is worse than the videogame adaptations of Uwe Boll (what a horrible, horrible man!)
I’d like to know what James thinks of the 2 GTA-Style films “Brothers Mario” (Youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kk9oa_PiXAk )
May 28, 2013 at 1:05 pm
There is a sequel comic being created currently.
May 28, 2013 at 1:22 pm
Please post on youtube. Watching videos like this here one is a nightmare!
May 28, 2013 at 1:32 pm
Is anybody else having problems with the video player on this site lately? The videos play fine for about 10-15 seconds and then the video starts jumping around like I’m watching Plumbers Don’t Wear Ties for the 3DO.
I believe that in the bullet bill part you put a clip of an underwater level of Super Mario World, if I remember correctly those were called Torpedo Ted.
May 28, 2013 at 1:34 pm
Hey James! First of all, congrats on the new addition to the family! Welcome to the fold. When I first saw this movie I was younger (in my teens) and I absolutely hated it. Now that I am older, I watched it again, and I enjoyed it much more because I realized how hard it must have been to create a script from the source material at the time. It’s kind of a fun movie if you set aside the pedestal that we subconsciously (and consciously) set the actual game on. I agree that it was a giant clusterfuck, and I can only imagine the nightmare it was to film it… but that’s kind of what makes it enjoyable to watch now that I’m older. I really love your movie reviews! Thanks for all your hard work!

Actually, the very first video game-movie adaptation was Super Mario Bros.: Peach-Hime Kyushutsu Dai Sakusen!, a Japanese-exclusive animated film, released on July 20th, 1986.

That is actually true. I forgot about this one. But the Mario live-aciton movie was the first live-action adaptation then 🙂

I’m fairly sure it was Nintendo who established that they were Mario Mario and Luigi Mario… but what this movie really messed up, was HOW they are related. They claim they are father and son, when in the games they are brothers… what the fuck?!
Wait, I thought “Tron” was a movie, that was turned into a game. From what I have read about it. I could be wrong, but does anyone agree?

That’s what James meant. It was about a video game, not based on one. And yes, that is right, they made a game after the movie 🙂
James, I would love to see a review of The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles. I love that series 😀

Yeah, I agree, or a review of The Adventures of Brisco County Jr. It was a really good show that was cancelled way too early. Both were great shows from the early 90s.

I’m still saddened about Young Indy’s cancellation to this day. It’s a little unfortunate though that there are so little supernatural stuff in the series, except the episode in Transylvania, but it kinda shows how he came to know such things. But it also shows how he became cynical and analytical. Even in Raiders of the Lost Ark he claim to not believe in the supernatural. I think he changed his mind after that, but I can’t be sure…

Dude – I can rarely watch videos on this site, I need to wait for youtube. They either never load, or if they do, the pause and sputter and die all the time.
