I really wanna see it but at this point I think I’m just gonna wait for a digital release. Got a few theater visits coming up, so I can sacrifice Mario in that regard. I think it’ll be fine without my $15 haha

I had the same thought. Was wondering if anyone here saw it. I saw it with some relatives. Had a great time.

Chris Pratt as Mario? I’m good. Will watch on Peacock one day probably.

The entire voice cast is there to sell as many tickets as possible. And it worked.

I'm not listening to Charles Martinet for an hour and half straight. Great in games, would be horrible for a movie. Glad he got his cameo though.

Also, all of the voices in the movie you can immediately place but Pratts. I wonder if they did some sort of modulation to his voice due to the feedback.

He was perfectly fine. 90 minutes of "let's a go" and "Wahoo" would'he been unbearable. Of all the main cast, the only one I didn't like was Seth Rogan as DK and, if you count it, Fred Armisan's character.

Like Wreck-It Ralph, there are two ways to watch the Mario movie. You can watch it like any other kids movie and appreciate the animation and in-jokes, or you can treat it like an Easter egg hunt and spend the 90 minutes looking for references and callouts.

If you do the latter, you're going to have an absolute blast. They range from unmissable (what Mario does after dinner) to brilliantly subtle (the book by Mario's bed).

If you do the former, the movie is a hard meh. The animation was gorgeous, the character designs were faithful (even Prattio, I guess), but the screenplay just doesn't do justice to so many characters. Bowser was S-Tier. Toad and Luigi were B- or a generous A-Tier. Every other main character just didn't have enough good dialogue to work with.

The line I kept repeating to myself walking out of the theater was "That was a lot of fun when nobody was talking."

Because they left out the most important character.

I have a projector screen and nice home theater system I've upgrade to over the last 20 year. I generally wait for blu rays. I might get the 4K release when it comes out.

I had an absolute blast with the Easter Eggs and references. I didn't expect much from the plot, and honestly, I couldn't care less about the plot. I loved how they really worked so much from the games and from the world of Nintendo into a 90 minute movie. References to old games like Wrecking Crew, Kid Icarus, and Punchout. References to characters/enemies from every single Mario game. There were references to to every game from Donkey Kong through Mario Odyssey. I loved how they made the 2D levels that we play as "Training Courses" in the Mushroom Kingdom. I loved the ending when Mario had to get up to Bowser's Castle and how they flew through powerups.

Jack Black was great. Every other voice actor was fine except for the two I mentioned (DK and CK). It was a fun movie. Anyone going in expecting anything more substantial than that is going to be very disappointed. People complaining about "not enough Yoshi" or they didn't show X character enough or at all need to relax. There is only so much they can fit in a 90 minute movie, and they will DEFINITELY have sequels.

Mario movie related. Don't click on this if you haven't seen it:


Bowser playing piano and singing about Princess Peach was awesome. "Peaches, Peaches" 😆

benq 3550 and elite pro accoustic motorized screen. It's nice, it's 50/50 fabric/pvc. I had a 100% pvc screen and I felt like the new screen absorbed the light even better. It felt like going from a projector throwing an image on a screen, to looking like the screen lit up like a TV. The reason I had to go to sound transparent is so I could have my speakers behind the screen. Because I went from 100" to 125". And at that point I have NO more room under or to the side of the screen. It takes up my whole wall in the L shaped room.

I don't know. I view a spoiler as anything in a movie that I'd rather have not known beforehand. Having seen it for the first time during the movie, I'd have been disappointed had I known about it prior to seeing the movie. Was a nice surprise.

I don't view it as a spoiler. I view deaths, major plot arcs, or twists as spoilers. But I've been reported for the tiniest of stupid things as spoilers around the net. someone probably would have reported you talking about a song as a spoiler elsewhere.

Wow. Thanks for posting that. Not too often they do a bogo on 1st party games like those.

Now's definitely not the right time for me to go for this. With the upcoming Zelda game and me being in middle of other games. It's obviously tempting, but going to have to say no this time. Now if they were to offer a b1g2 on brand new 1st party games, now that's a different story :)

Don't know if I'd be able to resist b1g2.

Playing Mario & Luigi Superstar Saga for the first time on NSO’s GBA and am already loving the humor. This bit made me audibly giggle. The Koopa Cruiser got blasted out of the sky and this is what the little guy is most worried about:

Wow, the Mario movie has eclipsed $700 million already worldwide. I thought it would do well, but I didn't imagine it would be one of the top grossing movies of the year like it looks like it may end up. It could eclipse $1 billion in a week or two (month total).

Interesting the Genesis gets a Street Fighter release. Can we control it with 6 buttons, or are we stuck with the crappy 3 button control?

Two more surprises:

Free game trial is Star Wars Republic Commando. Is this the first trial for an old port?

There is a new Tetris Maximus Cup event this weekend. When was the last one? I haven't seen one in ages... did I miss some?

Also, Advanced Wars Reboot drops next week?

@KCPenguins Not sure about Street Fighter, admittedly not much of a fighting game guy.

Oddly enough, I was just considering downloading Republic Commando on Steam because it's already in my library from a past Star Wars bundle. I was somewhat intrigued but wasn't in the mood at the time, but I just downloaded the trial on Switch and will give it a go when it launches on the 20th. If I dig it, I'll honestly probably just download it on Steam haha

In other Switch news, just realized the Oregon Trail remake got a new weekly challenge, Night Terrors, that sends you off as pioneers with an empty wagon, whose morale lowers every night (they're all afraid of the dark) and it rains every day. That's brutal. Apparently there's some new DLC coming out for it too. I've really been enjoying the Oregon Trail remake, it's a great progression of the very simple game all us 80s/90s kids remember from those grade school PCs most classes had.

I was pretty bad at Oregon Trail. Was it actually possible to win?

I assume it depends on the version, but the ones I played it was pretty easy to complete the trip. At least one person will die 9/10 times though... that was the best part for some players, those us of playing the "educational" game when green screens and macs were new. "Taught" us about dysentery and colera, fording and such.

Few weeks ago Tetris Maximus Cup was for Kirby DreamLand. Got an email that the points are easier to get too. I have missed 3-4, hope they let us use tickets to purchase them as they did once in the past. Otherwise what are the daily tickets for?

@nonamesleft Definitely possible. I could never do it, but I saw kids do it. The remake is still pretty unforgiving, but you can pick up from the last major landmark you make it to if you die. And there are a bunch of different modes you can play to get different experiences. There is one where your party will be faced with no obstacles whatsoever, and you can just float through the trail. I think it's called something along the lines of "the scenic route" or something similar, just a mega "easy mode".

You can also choose different characters with randomly generated skills for your party, that change up each play through. Just fun stuff.

I found it to be a sort of domino effect. If one of the characters got injured or worse, it was downhill from there. I wonder how difficult it would be to save them all throughout the journey.

The scenic route? Ha. Was there even that option in the original?

I think I'll watch gameplay of it on Youtube. Feeling a bit nostalgic.

It's interesting to me that people are still playing Oregon Trail. Some games are just classics, here to stay I guess.

@nonamesleft I think the original game was just the straight Oregon Trail game, no other modes or anything. The remake is vastly different in that regard, and it has updated (pixel art) graphics, so it's also visually new. You can play the original version too if I'm not mistaken, but that's only a tiny, tiny part of the full package.
