Well that's a cool arrival from iam8bit! CD since the vinyl was so expensive and wanted a physical copy of that score. #SuperMarioBrosMovie
Ce #SuperMarioBrosMovie était vrai plaisir à regarder. Je ne m'attendais pas à apprécier autant surtout que Illumination n'a pas pu s'empêcher d'utiliser le ralenti... et Yoshi est quasi inexistant. C'est dommage mais heureusement ça ne m'a pas gâché le film et j'ai passé un excellent moment ! #cinema #cinemastodon #Nintendo #jeuxvideo
There's a certain hilarious irony in the fact that Universal (unsuccessfully) sued Nintendo for copyright infringement over Donkey Kong back in 1981 (Universal owns the King Kong IP), then 42 years later made a movie featuring the Donkey Kong character that made them shitloads of money and became the (so far) top-grossing film of 2023.
My latest for Comic Book Resources. Here are 10 ways the Super Mario Bros Movie is better than the games (I know the Charles Martinet mention in the paragraph of the first entry may read strange, but I was referring to his voice work in games): https://www.cbr.com/super-mario-bros-better-game/ #SuperMarioBrosMovie
Saw the #SuperMarioBrosMovie yesterday. Don’t care about Mario or his world outside of games, but it was a fun story full of neat references for the most part.
Loved neurotic Bowser. Cranky being Old Jew Kong instead of Cranky Grandpa Kong was not what I was expecting. Peach’s giant eyes were not okay.
And all of the voices were totally fine. 🤷🏻♀️
Saw the #SuperMarioBrosMovie today. I haven't laughed so much in such a short time in a long, LONG while.
likely be a traditional Super Mario Bros Movie sequel starring Yoshi, but the Mario & Luigi RPG games definitely deserve the cinematic treatment too. #SuperMarioBrosMovie
, Keegan Michael-Ray and Seth Rogen are similarly great as Luigi, Peach, Toad, and Donkey Kong, but it's Jack Black as Bowser who's the real star here. Jack Black is simply the perfect voice for Bowser, capturing effortlessly his ferociously intimidating persona. His gravelly intonations are exactly how I would imagine Bowser to sound in the videogames, and it makes me wish for a Bowser's Inside Story movie. The post-credits scene makes it clear that the next movie will #SuperMarioBrosMovie
modern standards, and I think they made the right choice by making Peach more of a strong and capable leader. It gives her more agency within the plot, and also allows her to act as more of a mentor figure for Mario, once he arrives in the Mushroom Kingdom.
When I first saw the trailers, I was unconvinced by Chris Pratt as Mario. Fortunately, in the finished movie, he works brilliantly well, giving his iteration of Mario an underdog feel. Charlie Day, Anna Taylor-Joy #SuperMarioBrosMovie
64 as a guest at Bowser's ending.
The narrative itself is rather slight, but then if you're watching a Super Mario Bros. Movie, I'm not sure you're particularly watching for the plot. It mainly centres around Bowser's desire to marry Princess Peach and take over the Mushroom Kingdom, which to be fair, is an improvement on the storyline from the games.
Princess Peach's kidnapping is, after all, something that would never work in a modern movie. It's rather archaic by #SuperMarioBrosMovie
with so many nods to the series. One particular nod that made me laugh out loud were the Toads' lies that the princess "was in another castle", which brought back memories of playing the NES game as one of the free ambassador games on the 3DS. I also noticed the Super Mario Bros. 3 cape, and a nod to Mario Kart Double Dash, when Mario & Toad are passengers in the Kong kart. You can tell the animators are fans of the games when they even include King Bobomb from Super Mario #SuperMarioBrosMovie
The Super Mario Bros Movie: Super Mario Bros. is an interesting property when it comes to cinematic adaptations. On one hand, you have the live-action version, which deviates significantly from the games. On the other, you have the most recent iteration, The Super Mario Bros Movie, which is so faithful to Nintendo's franchise that it's like watching cutscenes from Super Mario Sunshine. Illumination's version is like a love letter to the videogames we all grew up playing, #SuperMarioBrosMovie
The top-grossing Hollywood films at the worldwide box office for 2023:
#SuperMarioBrosMovie -$1.35 Bil
#JohnWick4 -$427 million
#MissionImpossible7 -$379 million
@tillybridges Hold on doing some back of the napkin maths...
Less than the Box office Gross of, checks notes...
Man Of Steel
Less than the amount #WBD is trying to get by selling SOME of their music, which coincidently just covers the cost of their CEO's single year salary.
#SuperMarioBrosMovie grossed 1.4 BILLION Dollars, you could round down this contract from one successful kiddie flick.
I'm sorry, why are companies only offering The Super Mario Bros Movie to buy now? Why can't we rent it anymore? It was only ever able to rent at £15.99, which nobody in their right mind would pay! Normally the price goes down to a lower amount to rent before it goes to 'Buy Only'.
I'm now chatting with an Amazon Associate complaining about how ridiculous this is. I don't care if it's a Universal decision or not, that shouldn't be a thing. #SuperMarioBrosMovie
Mario Bros Movie, flawed story with some good twists, but not a great way to do it with the whole "Superstar" thing. Voice acting choice was a bit strange but worked okay I think. The animation was pretty good. The environment and character design was really good (Not the best i've seen).
But the fan service. My god that made me cry. The Mario Kart part especially was like, oh my god they know. Genius in those parts but a hard pass for story, and Peach. I only played MK

I've been watching the #SuperMarioBrosMovie yesterday and today. I'm about 2/3 through and I can wholeheartedly recommend it. 😁
It's fun to watch out for the insane amount of Easter eggs and I love how competent Peach is in this movie. And Bowser is just a big ol' softie. 🥰
It is a cute movie that holds many surprises. Not in the overall plot, but in the way plot elements are tied together.
I'm having tons of fun and look forward to finishing it tomorrow.
Watched #SuperMarioBrosMovie for the first time with @jsbilsbrough tonight. This was a series that got me into gaming on the NES at a young age and it was so much fun! This movie just has so many amazing references. The music to the sound effects just made me laugh like the young Jae I was when I began playing these games with my sisters.
This gem arrived yesterday and I watched it earlier - and I loved it! I hope there will be a sequel in the same style. The nostalgia was done just right - there were sooooo many Easter eggs, but they never bored or annoyed me. I cheered at every single one I recognized. Great fun, this! #SuperMarioBrosMovie #Mario #SuperMario #Nintendo #Gaming #Videogame #ShareYourGames #Movie #BluRay
Remember when the #SuperMarioBrosMovie came out and for a little while everyone had that Bowser song stuck in their heads, singing “Peaches, Peaches, Peaches Peaches Peaches” to themselves?
It’s been over two months now and
The Super Mario Bros. Movie is coming to Blu-ray next week - The Verge
Donnerstag erscheint übrigens der #SuperMarioBrosMovie bei iTunes und Co. Dachte ihr solltet das wissen.
Saw the #SuperMarioBros movie today and ... yeah. It had its moments, especially in regards to music and visuals, but the whole movie progression felt pretty subpar most of the time.
We're closing in on two months since the #SuperMarioBrosMovie released in theaters, it's been available digitally for over a week, and yet there's still no Donkey Kong merchandise from the film. Where's the Gyrating Love Machine DK figure? The Exploding Swanky Kong? WHERE?
In the games, Donkey Kong usually keeps a portrait or picture of Candy Kong by his hammock.
But in the #SuperMarioBrosMovie...
The #SuperMarioBrosMovie referring to Cranky and Donkey Kong as father and son has left some fans feeling all confused. So on the next episode of the #Kongversation, Gibbon and I will explore the long, Kongfounding history of exactly how Donkey and Cranky are related!
We record this Friday at 9 PM EDT/6 PM PDT! Call the DK Vine Hotline at 1-202-630-VINE (8463) with your thoughts and opinions! And don't forget that $5 and up Patrons can listen live!
So... what are your feelings on the #SuperMarioBrosMovie's redesigns for Dixie, Diddy, and Chunky Kong?
Squee! I can’t wait for this to come out! (I prefer physical media. Sorry but not sorry.) And the BluRay is only two more Euros than the DVD, so I guess I’ll be getting that sweet HD quality. #SuperMario #SuperMarioBrosMovie #Mario #Luigi #Bowser #Peach #Toad #Nintendo #Gaming #Videogame #Movie #ShareYourGames
After breaking box office records, Super Mario Bros. Movie now available digitally.
I'm super late to write a blog post about the Super Mario Bros movie, but hey, it just hit VOD today, soooo...now it's timely? Anyway, my thoughts on the movie!

Now that the #SuperMarioBrosMovie is out on digital storefronts, we'll be lifting our spoiler policy to talk about the movie out in the open.
Spoilers like how Swanky Kong's charred corpse bounces on the docks at the exact moment a-ha's Morten Harket sings "I'll be gone."
Went to see a movie for the first time since before the pandemic. It was my sons' first time ever at a movie theater. It was nice to be at a theater again. I forgot how LOUD it gets.
Por fin he visto la película de Super Mario.
La historia muy simple pero es entretenida. Quizá ocurre todo demasiado acelerado pero supongo que es porque han querido meter todos los homenajes posibles. La animación estaba bien aunque no soy un entendido de eso. Yo soy más de pixels.
Cuando salga en Blu-Ray la compraré para verla varias veces. Parece que hay referencias a muchas otras sagas de Nintendo y me gustaría encontrarlas.
Tons of movies coming out this month that already ran in other territories, like #Renfield, #CocaineBear, and #WinnieThePoohBloodAndHoney. Also haven't seen the #SuperMarioBrosMovie. If I'm unlucky, I might miss out on most of them.
Then again, my two- weeks vacation begins in the middle of May, so I might get some quality time in theaters after all.
Deserved! It’s a fantastic movie! 😃😍🥳💙💖👍
#SuperMarioBrosMovie becomes the first film of the year to gross $1 billion at the global box office.
The Super Mario Bros Movie was very by the book as far as plot beats go. Peach was presented very well, not as “Girl-Bossy” as the press was making her out to be. I was glad to see the Super Mario Bros. was taken very literally when Mario AND Luigi saved the day. That was a nice touch. Again, a very safe movie but very enjoyable. Easter eggs alone were worth a viewing. #supermariobrosmovie #nintendo

bello, ma ahimè come in molti credo che da un certo punto di vista è un "a sto giro mi bastavano i trailer"
non c'è stato quel "uoh!" che per dire mi diede Lego Movie (per stare sul genere), ma "solo" una gioia per i rimandi ai giochi e Bowser che canta
Peaches peaches peaches 🎶
I finally saw the Super Mario Bros. Movie yesterday, and it was fantastic! Great animation, music, and humor, oh, and the Easter eggs!
Jack Black stole the show as Bowser ❤️🔥 and I love how Peach was a stronger character as well. Chris Pratt did a great job as Mario, that is why you don't judge before you see it! I don't review films on my blog much anymore, but would you like me to do this one? #supermariobros #supermariobrosmovie #bowser #princesspeach
Arrivato il ?Block con due piacevoli regali da parte dello store lego.
Mi hanno convinto i miei bimbi dopo la visione di #SuperMarioBrosMovie
“Purtroppo” dobbiamo aspettare a montarlo dopo aver riassemblato la Ecto-1 che era caduta sfracellandosi 😂
Watched #SuperMarioBrosMovie. It was a lot of fun, full of easter eggs, and not as adult-centric as a lot of post-Shrek movies have been, which is neither good nor bad. I think I would have found it pretty meh if I hadn't had my kid with me, but given that he was, it was a great time.
The timing was good and the characters were all loveable. Jack Black was a stand-out as always.
The soundtrack was banging through regardless.
I have seen the #SuperMarioBrosMovie three times and it has been a blast every time.
We went to see the #SuperMarioBrosMovie and obviously given the constraints it had no chance of being a cinematic masterpiece, but given those constraints, seriously, it has no business being as good as it is.
There's an actual story that mostly works, voice acting and animation is flawless, there is character development, the references are fun but mostly not actually on the nose and the score is absolutely brilliant.
Watch it with a person too young to have seen even a Wee in real life, but who has caught up through hours and hours of YouTube, and you'll be constantly be jabbed in the side by someone going "that's the suit and the flowers Bowser had at the end of Odyssey!", "that's a Mario 64 reference!", etc. =)
I’m kinda ready to watch the movie again. It’s just a blast of fun. #SuperMarioBrosMovie
Tomorrow I'll have a surprise trip to the movie theater with my 5y old son. We'll be seeing #SuperMarioBrosMovie (2023 ✌️😏) because he really wants to go after seeing the trailer.
Never played any of the games, yet he knows the character by name (･o･;)
#SuperMarioBrosMovie sieht fantastisch aus, ist ein Gagfeuerwerk und hat viele Anspielungen an die alten und neuen Games ohne Ende. Story passend aber zeitgemäß. Peach rockt 💪
Time to share some thoughts on the #SuperMarioBrosMovie - will thread and spoiler tag just because!
The #SuperMarioBrosMovie was a blast! It's brimming with so much Mario and Nintendo Easter eggs, visual and in music and who Charles Martinet voices. I alternated goose bumps to smiling to smiling with goose bumps the entire movie. Mario Bros fans will love this!
Oh. My. God. It’s MUCH better than I ever thought it could be. Such a love letter to everything Mario and i watched it with a smile on my face from start to finish
Let’s see if this movie is as good as the trailers were #SuperMarioBrosMovie
No offense to your music app, but mine can generate me a #SuperMarioBrosMovie release day playlist 😛
Saw the #SuperMarioBrosMovie and had a lot of fun! A real movie for the fans, with more Easter eggs than you can spot in a first viewing.
Although I can imagine it being a bit of a WTF for people who haven’t played the games 😅
Max liked LEGO since he was tiny. When I wanted to introduce him to Star Wars, we did LEGO Star Wars. He’s 100% in on Star Wars now. I did most of the build but the play aspect of Bowser’s Airship has flipped him from a no to a yes on #SuperMarioBrosMovie and I’m a happy dad.
My whole family is incredibly excited for the #SuperMarioBrosMovie!! I can’t wait to see it next month!
