Classic Super Mario Bros Movie

Taking a long walk through memory lane, I finally saw the Super Mario Bros movie (again) after what seemed decades. This movie inspired by the mushroom kingdom was created in 1993, meaning the special effects and stunts are not something to look forward to. The whole concept of a “Mushroom Kingdom” was taken a little too seriously, in this case. I mean, a city covered in a Mushroom blanket? Humanoid Goombas? What’s next, a human Bowser? Oh wait, the King of Koopas is already as human as can be in this movie (no turtle enemies in this film). Although the whole “Mario” concept was taken to freakishly tragic proportions, the misconception and highly unorthodox universe of the plumbers is quite entertaining. You will have more fun trying to figure out what relates to the Mushroom Kingdom than from watching the movie itself. Nevertheless, its an unfortunate classic that Mario Bros fans have to see it to believe it.
