    Now that I think about it princess peach did say mario and luigi were prophecied to save them, so I guess it would make sense for them to have packaged noodles with their faces on it.

    Peter, Paul, and Mary said that there was no veiled drug references in Puff the Magic Dragon. It's literally about a boy and his dragon. It's supposed to symbolize the loss of innocence as a child grows up.

  • Dave Hoffman

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

  • Zycyzyx
    Zycyzyx 3 months ago

    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 3 months 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.

    3:50 To be fair, everyone thinks Australia is nothing but desert, so why not the US?

    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.
