It appears to be an origin story for some goddamn reason

idk I'll watch it, it's got Toad and Luigi in it!

trailer raises the frightening prospect that Mario's species is "human"

Damn you! God damn you all to hell!

I'll probably watch it too, sigh

always nice to see toad, my kart main

thought it was usual that mario is a human from new york city but investigation reveals this has not been explicit in a video game since the 1983 "mario bros" (sans super) arcade game, in which mario fought koopas in the new york sewers, except on atari, where he fought koopas in "his house"(!)-- however even putting aside the hoskins/leguizamo film maudit, mario or a version of him is also definitely human in the super mario bros super show, feat. both animated lou albano and live-action lou albano, in a kind of double life of veronique situation

i guess the two super show marios are distinct (if somehow entangled) entities tho so we can't rly say what the animated one is-- yr right then i think, an unnecessary and diminishing label in this case. (also unnecessary and diminishing is that chris pratt just sounds like aladdin.)

was happy to discover this relevant apocrypha--

--tho did not even attempt to read the babar-ass cursive.

without the super mario bros., this would just be called "Movie"

It seems like “Movie” would be an accurate summary of the plot

G. D’Arcy Cheesewright (silby), Wednesday, 30 November 2022 03:08 (three months ago) link

Maybe this latest movie is an attempt to rationalize the canon a la “Crisis on Infinite Earths”

lol, did they really make Chris Pratt say "Alright, let's a go"?

Chris Pratt definitely seems wrong for this but anyone who thinks they should've just used Charles Martinet is insane. who would want to hear that over the course of an entire movie? no one would understand a word

it looks gorgeous though. they definitely captured the colorful and vibrant look you see in every Mario game, particularly the Galaxy ones. just hoping it won't have too much self-referential bullshit, though let's be real, I'm only excited for this because my kids will wanna see it, and I'm sure they will love it

Mario begins the movie as a "Dr", but he's really just a chiropractor, crackin rich old folks' backs and claiming he aligned their quantum energy.

Yeah, this always kind of stuck out with me whenever I saw another campaign to get him to replace Pratt. He's perfect for the limited times they need him in a video game, but wouldn't work at all over the course of a full movie. But fuck Pratt anyway though.

this year's minions movie is far and away the most fun and gorgeous illumination production and i hope that carries through into this

I would’ve cast Jon Benjamin as Mario personally

G. D’Arcy Cheesewright (silby), Wednesday, 30 November 2022 16:42 (three months ago) link

I’ll only see this if Kuribo’s Shoe shows up, but points for actually setting it in and rendering the actual Mushroom Kingdom instead of cheaping out and doing the usual “fantastic licensed animated character shows up in the real world for lazy fish out of water jokes” that like every other franchise adaption from He-Man to Smurfs to Sonic did.

This and the theme parks are shaping up to be Miyamoto’s swan songs more or less, and I guess Pikmin 4

Kinda coming around on this, or at least I'm digging the orchestral score.

Koji Kondo the goat

Also the voice almost sounds fun in this clip

Does Mushroom Kingdom have universal basic income? They seem to be collecting coins freely from the coin blocks.

jmm, Friday, 9 December 2022 18:58 (three months ago) link

maybe that's their job

chances seem slim that this movie will produce the same level of profoundly erotic merchandise that the 1993 versh did, sadly

most erotic phrase uttered by these SUPER MARIO BROS. (1993) action figures
