I've never seen the Super Mario Bros. movie, but I just don't really like the concept. It just seems like one of those franchises that a movie would detract from, especially a live action movie. I mean, it's just too fantasy-style. (imagine Goombas and Koopas running around downtown New York)

Yeah, they turned Yoshi into a Jurassic Park style Raptor, the Goombas are huge guys with small heads, don't see Koopas much at all and Bowser is an evolved T-rex that looks more or less human most of the time. And the Princess came from an egg and her dad is fungus. Or something. From what I recall of the movie, anyway, it HAS been quite some time. o.o

Ugh.

That sounds nauseating.

I kinda want to refresh my memory though, since I'm not sure how accurate it is. I wonder if they bothered to make a DVD version. o.o
If not, maybe theres a torrent somewhere....

Oh, found one. That was fast.

Actually, Yoshi was about the size of a dog. I know that Raptors were bigger than a dog. But the rest is all true! But King Toadstool was a fungus because Bowser made him one. Also: Mario's girlfriend is Daniella, a girl from Brooklyn. Princess Daisy (not Peach) falls in love with Luigi.

But I like the movie anyway.

Um, no, not really. They were about the same sze as a large one. A bit long maybe, but that's because of the tail.

Oh. okay. so I was wrong,
so what? Sue me!
(not really, not reall-augh! *gets pummeled by lawsuits from sarcastic forumgoers*)
But I do actually like that movie, I just don't think it belongs in the same category as "Mario"

Agreed. Its not all that truly horrendous, but it really just...isn't right, for a movie based on Mario. Something in a more drawn or CG style would work better, and sticking closer to the actual characters...wouldn't mind if they came up with an original story, but the key point is that they should be faithful to the characters, in both personality and depiction. =3

They are currently in the process of making a Castlevania film, which I believe should be quite good.
It is pssible to read the wikipedia article on it here.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Castlevania#Film

My only response to that news is to think of that lovely 'miserable pile of secrets' quote from one of the games. Part of me really hopes they do it, another part knows that if they do, it could be the same as the 'juggernaut bitch' line and that one from snakes on a plane. So, I'm conflicted. But, since I've thought of it, I'll go post it in the appropriate topic. :3
