20 Years After Super Mario Bros, Video Game Movies Still Suck

GR: "Within the film's first minutes, viewers have to suspend any knowledge of the princess-saving plumber's exploits and instead buy into an alternate dimension where King Koopa rules Dinohattan after the meteor that wiped out the dinosaurs actually just pushed a bunch of them into an alternate dimension.

"What the f*** were they smoking?" (Culture, Super Mario Bros.)

The Street Fighter movie might've been bad, but the game that came from it - Street Fighter: The Movie: The Game - amaze-balls.

Wait, people didn't like the Mario Brothers movie?

I thought I heard it was nominated for an Oscar. Maybe I misheard that.

It was actually one of 1993's biggest box-office bombs.

An awesome Mario brothers movie would be easy as hell to make now, simply get Pixar to do it.

If you haven't see the Ace Attorney movie and are into the series, I highly recommend it. If you don't follow the games, it's still the best game to film out there in my opinion.

I thought the first Silent Hill film was pretty decent, and there were a few good moments in Doom (not enough to stop it being mostly crap though), but I have to agree with the article - Pretty much all game based films are terrible.

All the upcoming films based on games will also be terrible in all likelihood, but they will still make them.
