Video Game Movies

Okay, Edgar Figaro, you've crossed the line this time, and I'mma have to call you out on it.

Although most video game movies do suck, the Super Mario Bros movie was a pretty great movie. It had everything; Plumbers, Princesses, New York accents, Explosions, John Leguizamo...

And sure, it's not a cut and paste of the video game franchise, but there's plenty of neat references in there, and it's thoroughly entertaining. And in the very least it actually has a comprehensible plot, which is pretty good for 1993 movies.
Little leaf, green leaf
Gather light to you.
Little root, deep root
Bind the earth to you.
Mind the trunk that holds you high!
Mind the branches long and proud!
So strong stands the forest.

My favourite part of your friend's review is,
"the film's accidental genius: you just laughed at how bad the chase was! You are unintentionally enjoying yourself!"

"Considering Mario and Luigi are in two different places at the film's climax, Mario's decision to bluff allows the viewer to be worried for both characters at the same time:"
Now I want to resee the climax : (

"pre-9/11 use of the World Trade Center towers in a destructive capacity!"

Bwahahaha - Osama did not destroy the Twin Towers - it was Bowser!
flood + Pakistan = hunger
