20 Videogame Movie Adaptations That Are Worse Than Super Mario Bros.

In late 2012, I forced myself to watch every videogame movie adaptation ever released theatrically in the US – all thirty-two of them – at a rate of one per week, just to say I had. It was an eight month period that continually challenged my resolve, and my sanity.

Upon the successful completion of my goal, one thing continued to mystify me: why does Super Mario Bros. continue to be considered the worst videogame movie adaptation of all time, when there are so many others that are so much worse?

Mind you, Super Mario Bros. is by no means a great movie, and the intro segement tacked on by executives is admittedly awful. But the film as a whole is undeserving of its bad reputation. Despite a troubled production, Super Mario Bros. features competent writing, competent directing, and better than competent performances – a trifecta that few other videogame adaptations can claim.

To celebrate the 20th anniversary of its theatrical release, here are twenty other theatrically-released videogame movie adaptations that are worse than Super Mario B...

Shoot, I'll say I liked Super Mario Bros. back in the day. It was nothing like the game, but it was still a pretty fun movie to watch. I even watched it again the other day for the anniversary.

As a 6 year old (pretty sure that's how old I was, I loved it :P Haven't seen it since then and never will for memory's sake.

Yep...

Recently re-watched this turd and I loved every bit of this cyber-punk adventure film.

All I read is how much everyone hated working on this film but it's a classic of stinky proportions. I love it!

Super Mario Bros. was one of those "so freakin' terrible that it's actually kind of a classic" films.

They forgot about "DOA: Dead or Alive" and "Far Cry"

I think everyone wants to forget about those two.

Far Cry was terrible, but this was for movies that released in theaters. I watched Far Cry on netflix just to see what they did to it. I wish I didn't.

DOA was a delightfully insane comedy, and was incredibly enjoyable to watch. I was only disappointed that they ran out of crazy juice by the end...the island should've taken off into the sky, or turned into a giant robot, or something.

I see Doom made the list.I still mourn for the 12 people who wasted 10 bucks going to the theater to see that...Not that the others on the list were much better (or worse?)
