The live-action adaptation Super Mario Bros. movie will be screened at the NuArt Theatre in Los Angeles, CA on Friday, May 24.
Whoever thought this was good idea need to shot.....with a poisonous mushroom.
Shooting them with a fireball would be better. Or make them eat the mushroom.
Oh! As much as the movie sucked, the song HOCUS POCUS by Roxette is incredible! If you like 80s and 90s songs, you are going love it! www.youtube.com/watch?v=HIwoA tgKBUA
Whoever thought of this idea should have to go through the torture of watching it. ;)
They need to be publicly humiliated first.
Shooting is too good! Break out.. The Bom-ombs!
They did to Super Mario what Michael Bay tried to do to TMNT. Butchered the storyline of a beloved to the far-beyond-ridiculous level. They didn't have the tech to have a convincing looking King Koopa, so he becomes some humanoid descendant of a T-rex that has somehow evolved to look like Dennis Hopper with a bad haircut? This movie was garbage... So bad I can't even watch it for a laugh. I just start crying.
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. ^^Perspective courtesy of Wiki
this movie is not good...I've seen it like 5-6 times over the years...not sure why..lol but it's not good.
I thought April Fools day was over. Someone must have lost a bet or was really drunk or stoned to come up with this idea. This is one of those movies you want to forget like Street Fighter or the ET game on Atari.
"The Room" gets screened sometimes, too. It's for pretentious people that want to watch a terrible movie and laugh at it.
Now in 3D! jk Yeah this was a movie that should have been "straight to DVD"
Well it wouldn't have sold very well.
Actually when this was released it would have went straight to vhs.
my friend its straight to VHS i think in this case
Haha. Awesome. Yes, it's a ridiculous movie, but it's SO entertaining. I don't classify this as a bad film.
Great i sincerely like the movie, youngsters will be able to appreciate the movie.
HAHAHA! And the collective gaming community says "Meh..are we supposed to care?"
i was dissapointed in the movie even as a kid lol. im like uhh yoshi looks like jurrasic park. the only part that looked like mario is the bob omb at the end lol.
This is proof that video games can't be turn into movies (in less its made like the game/stick to the story). Its about as bad as Dragonball the movie..... God that was a bad one. lol: http://www.youtube.com/watc...
This makes me feel so old.
May God have mercy on us all. I bet Bob Hoskins is facepalming as we speak.
Worst video game movie of all time. I know. I was there for the original release and people were leaving the theater during the movie. The sad sacks who actually made it to the ending were leaving with this"wtf did I just sit thru"look on their faces. Me included.
read title and screamed NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO O OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OOOOOOOOOOOO at least its not on 3D
I must be one of the few who actually like this movie. Only thing it has in common with the games are the character names, but I still thought it was an okay movie. I must be weird...
If you check my post i liked it as well (Add Street Fighter to that, Van damm in any movie is a sure great from me). At least is better than that Dragon Ball movie.
witch dragon ball the last one or the 80/90s ones
Everyone's guilty of liking a crap movie at least once. But this movie was more like that white stuff that grows on dog poop after its been sitting in the sun for a week. Bet dennis hopper wishes he could take this one back. It actually made me a sceptic for every video game movie since. Who thought a re-release would be a good idea?! Surely nintendo isn't this desperate to drum up interest in mario again? Not that they needed to. I and many others still love mario and family so...wtf
may god have mercy on our souls
never seen this movie lol, ought to check it out sometime
This may sound ridiculous, but the movie doesn't even follow the classic Mario storyline. It's supposed to be that Bowser (King Koopa) captures peach and Mario saves her, in this movie hwever, King Koopa's underlings capture Luigis's girl Daisy. The ONLY thing this movie had in common with Super Mario was the names of the creatures and characters. I will say that the Groombas are one of the most ridiculous things I've ever seen.
Wheres m blue shell and star power at...
was this the first crap video game based movie
this movie was so horrible that it was good.. Ill watch it again
Here's hoping the ticket sales don't recoup what they spent on re-releasing. That'll teach 'em.
