    6:39 - First Super Mario 64 and now Luigi’s Mansion? What’s the deal with trash talking certain Mario games that many people happen to like?

    This just sounds like an extra-long TheXvid video. And I'm talking about the movie, not this video.

  • Zycyzyx

    I still like the live action one better. The games' "story" is thin enough that they have to get creative to stretch it out to fit a feature at all, so I have to go with the one that got *really* creative and is still memorable and fun for that reason.
    This has charm but it's passable at best and not very memorable. Showing game worlds like Mario's in animation has SO much potential for insane imaginative visuals but they didn't go far down that road at all. (That's my biggest disappointment, honestly.)
    Also, lots of stuff in this movie just irks me. Mario and Luigi are both oddly greedy* considering their heroic quest, the weird product placement literally interferes with the story and the use of the game elements just isn't very inspired.

    • Zycyzyx
      Zycyzyx 20 days ago

      *This is what happens when you have to fill in the void that is a game character's character with whatever you can. Mario collects gold coins in the game, so greediness becomes his personality trait since there is nothing else available to put there.

    So, I went to the channel and found the video clips to save them in my watch history, and the video quality looks worse in that channel's uploads than in this NC review.

    I love how the US film is terrible for ignoring the source material, but this Eastern one is worse for sticking with only sections of the source material.

    2:05 So how come it's okay when Rapunzel uses a frying pan as a weapon, then? Yeah yeah, I know, it's because she pretty much has nothing else due to being trapped in a tower her whole life, but still - a frying pan is a pretty badass blunt weapon!
    3:50 To be fair, everyone thinks Australia is nothing but desert, so why not the US?
    16:20 Oh please, don't remind of all the drama I've had with the "-ess" suffix!

    There's an updated official English dub of this that just came out this past year. It's easy to find, and most of the dialogue is much better. Mario and Luigi are better, too, but many of the side characters are a bit muffled, particularly the old man. It's worth checking out at RealGuyProductions. I got a kick out of it.

  • frozenaorta

    Just watched this. So it is weird as HELL in a very late 80's Japanese animation way, and it has way too much crappy late 80's j-pop... I didn't sign up for a musical! Ha. But you have to appreciate that they incorporated every single enemy and setting from the original SMB game. That's dedication. Silly? Yes. But also sort of funny and worth a watch.

    Mario killed the prince after the credits. Then hired Bowser to kidnap the princess again and again as punishment for making him risk his life multiple times for nothing. That's why the prince was never seen again, and why the princess gets captured so many times in the games.
