I'm not going to lie. I like the 1993 Bob Hoskins, John Leguizamo & Dennis Hopper Super Mario Brothers movie. Are nostalgia goggles blinding me to the reality that this movie is total junk? It's possible but I'm ok with that.

Cygnus Destroyer runs The Super Mario Brothers Movie through the Innocent Until Proven Guilty court and I thought his verdict was fair. What do you think though? Is the Super Mario Brothers movie a gaming film classic or is it a steaming pile of goomba poop we all need to let go of?

I can't remember when I first saw it (perhaps at the movie theater), how many times I've seen it, or when I last saw it. So, I pretty much remember my first impressions. I thought the Koopa Troopas (giant lizards with small heads) were creepy. Other than that, I guess I liked it. It was kind of disappointing, regarding how loose the staff was with the source, but it was still Super Mario Bros. I pretty much agree with Cygnus here, but if I watched it again, I'd probably see it worse than I remember. Just seeing clips again reminds you how movies have aged.

Yeah, the effects were mostly practical and it really shows with the rubber masks and creature stuff, which I really like.
