Whoever thought this was good idea need to shot.....with a poisonous mushroom.
Godmars290  +   849d ago
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!

They need to be publicly humiliated first.

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.[16] 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?"[17]
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.[18]
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.

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.

WAT.

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.

Yeah this was a movie that should have been "straight to DVD"

WeAreLegion  +   849d ago
Haha. Awesome. Yes, it's a ridiculous movie, but it's SO entertaining. I don't classify this as a bad film.
Kratoscar2008  +   849d ago

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.

May God have mercy on us all.

I bet Bob Hoskins is facepalming as we speak.
ACESupERIC  +   849d ago
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.
1Victor  +   849d ago
read title and screamed NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO O OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OOOOOOOOOOOO at least its not on 3D
JaggedCarpet  +   849d ago
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.
1Victor  +   849d ago
witch dragon ball the last one or the 80/90s ones
ACESupERIC  +   849d ago
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

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.

Here's hoping the ticket sales don't recoup what they spent on re-releasing. That'll teach 'em.
