May 28 marks the 20th anniversary of the infamous Super Mario Bros. movie. Whether you love it or love to hate it, it's nonetheless a landmark film that holds a special place in gaming history.
To celebrate the grand occasion, Super Mario Bros. The Movie Archive held a special midnight screening at the Nuart Theatre in Los Angeles this past Friday. It was a big to-do, with props on display and a Q&A session with several members of the film's production staff. But the coolest treat of all was a special message from Luigi Mario himself, actor John Leguizamo.
You've no doubt heard by now that the actual filming was something of a nightmare for all involved, yet Leguizamo is happy that the movie has had such a lasting legacy regardless. He remembers some of the good times on set, like when he f*cked up Bob Hoskins' hand with the sliding door of the Mario Bros. van! Great goin', Weegee!
On the topic of the Mario film, allow me to pimp my other gig for a sec and let you know that the third issue of Nintendo Force is out, which contains a juicy feature on the Super Mario Bros. movie. Check it out, son!
gajknight I want to listen to classical music. But I'm in a funky mood right now. The solution?SeymourDuncan17 Been watching Better Call Saul, being a pretty big fan of Breaking Bad, and it's been pretty decent. Like a b-side to BB. But, this scene with Trevor (GTAV)-famous Steven Ogg has been my highlight. There's more to it before this, but it's the best part. Parismio Whens the racist Wakka animation?:SeymourDuncan17 Well, wherever you are, Human...jak2364 ...Well, nice to know I could improve a game I didn't take a survey on!SeymourDuncan17 jak2364 ...Does Ubisoft let their employees do drugs before they write surveys? It really seems like it. "The progression of the main character (skills) in the game should be adapted" Can anyone tell me what the hell that's supposed to mean?FakePlasticTree I always thought the anime Baccano felt like something out of Guy Richie or Tarantino--then someone made the intro of Snatch with the opening theme from Baccano playing over it. Two of my favorite things together and it fits beautifully. I love it <3Dr Mel I just need something to do for 5 minutes before I got to leave. *checks Dtoid Quickposts* .... SHIT, 15 mintues!Dreamweaver Weird nerdy confession: I actually wrote, and got HEAVILY invested in, Pokemon fan fiction. It was based on a RP Story I did on The Escapist forums, and featured a love story between a Squirtle and a Miltank. To this day, Miltank still gets me aroused. :PSayWord Spending time with your significant other, or playing with Nep Nep? I choose you Neptune! =P SpaghettiOReilly And when I said "as" I meant "this." The funk has ruined my mind.SpaghettiOReilly It's been ages since I've been as addicted to a game. That changed yesterday. I can't stop playing Crypt of the Necrodancer. Send help. My hands hurt.JPF720 As I'm back to studying, I can't help but recall that while it took me a week to read 10 pages of psychology theory I managed to read an analysis on Killer7's plot, that was 100 pages long, in a day. Good times.WryGuy "I don't trust you, pal." "Well I don't trust YOU, guy." "I don't trust ANY of you, friend." This has basically been the Marvel themed Werewolf game we're having in the forums right now. Real popcorn material.JohnSmith123 "I don't have time to explain why I don't have time to explain." Then she explains anyway.Rad Party God id Tech 5 is a damn fine engine, but it's way ahead of its time. If The New Order and The Old Blood together need almost 70 GB of space, I cringe just to think what an open world game would need using that engine.CoilWhine I'm definitely snatching Quantum Break on Xbox One so I can get dat crossbuy. Screw the haters, I'm excited for it and it's exactly what I hoped for when it comes to W10 exclusive gaming and crossbuy.VIRGO I've done nothing but read Pointandclickbait.com articles and now that's all I want to write like...Ckarasu People who think that Smash 4 balance patches aren't coming because Sakurai said development has ended don't know anything. I doubt he'd just drop the characters and leave, given the potential balance issues. He's a professional, not an amateur.
