We get Andy and Rory to sit down and watch the Super Mario Bros. movie and see if it's a good example of a game to movie conversion.
I gotta say that as a video game adaptation it sucked the proverbial testicles but as a film to watch and laugh with/at, it was chuckle worthy. We shall never see its like again, for good reason.
I took it for what it was. I enjoyed it. Definetly alot more than that monstrostity "The Last Airbender"...*snarls" ; One unfortunate side is the production for the film as dev hell x100,000,000 From change in script, to overbudgeting...a total complete mess. The main actor(blast I forget his name:Who Framed Rojer Rabbit dude) held an interview a couple of months ago about the film. A good read.
They should barry the movie in the New Mexico desert with the old ET Atari game
I liked it as a kid but I can see how awful it is a as a game to movie adaption now, still good for a laugh right? :D
Yeah same here, I enjoyed it when I was a kid. Now that I'm a grown up, my mission is to have my younger siblings watch it and be horrified on how bad it is. lol! XD Then again they will probably enjoy like I did when I was their age. ^_^
Good idea xD I wonder what the kids of today would think of it. Lol! yeah most likely ^^
As a video game adaptation it wasn't that good. But as far as movies go it was enjoyable. Second, I was a kid when I went to see this so I didn't care. Watching it in 2011 I have to say that It's still an awesome movie. I look at it like this, if you are going to watch it, just picture it as non-cannon with the games. :)
Like others have said its a terrible video game to film adaption (really though they didnt really have a story to work with) but its still an amusing movie.
It was so bad it was 'Almost Unreal'.
It was bad but it wasnt the worst. The worst was Dragonball Evolution. As a DBZ fan, this movie was an insult. It was so bad it actually caused physical harn to me while i watched it. It hurted my head so much, i had to stick a red hot poker up my ass to balance out the pain. :-(
I hated it as a kid, but I actually like it now. It definitely isn't a good game-to-movie adaptation, but it's still a pretty fun movie with some hilarious characters. One of those "so bad it's good" type of movies. :D
I enjoyed it as a kid and still do now. Its not gonna win an Oscar of course but its good for what it is. To those saying it was a bad game to movie... really? You try come up with a GOOD story for two plumbers who rescue a princess from a lizard king, with toads and monsters... yeah it wasn't exactly written for the big screen was it?
Pixar would deal with it nicelly.
Sure it was a terrible film, but it was a lot more faithful to the subject material than Street Fighter, Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li, Double Dragon, Resident Evil & House Of The Dead.
Well you know its bad, but it's not the worst movie ever made.
It pretty much made like no sense at all lol
I was maybe 13-14 when I saw it & it was crap...simple as that. Bob Hoskins is a great actor, but this is a horrible scar on his otherwise perfect film skin. Roger Rabbit was awesome & a much better watch than this turd....in fact, they should have got a great videogame franchise going from Roger Rabbit, as that films content would make for a great videogame. Now that graphics & power of consoles & computers is at a place that could do it justice, it would be nice to see a game made on Who Framed Roger Rabbit. I would love a AAA game from that awesome source material. For starters, you have multiple characters to play from that would not only offer very different styles of play, but also the human/cartoon artstyles that fluctuate between one or the other, or the mixture of both. You could play detective type parts as Hoskins like an L.A. Noire maybe, then as Roger as a platformer, you could even play the start bit as the baby/man actor dude.
