I read the title of this thread and thought it was April the 1st...

But then read the article, since Nintendo are teaming up with Illumination Entertainment I guess it'll be a CGI version which could actually be good!

I really enjoyed Despicable Me, especially the lasted one with Evil Bratt.

I hate to say "So what", but any CGI movie would just end up looking and (assuming they get Charles Martinet, which they should!) sounding exactly like how the modern games look and sound. Which, really, are bloody fantastically well made!

Given that Mario's pretty much done every possible combination of "Bowser steals the Princess, Rinse, Repeat", I honestly can't see where they can take it, that would make it anything more than could be done in a game.

Well, if it's a Mario film, then according to Nintendo form it'll be the same old shit as the last version, but with better graphics?

Fairly sure it won't be the same old shit as the last version!

.. Oh, and you need to play Mario Odyssey and Zelda:BOTW if you think the games never change!

I’ve been playing Zelda, a link between worlds on the 2DS... Love it!

I wouldn't mind a go of BOTW to be fair, but the days of buying a console for one game are far behind me.

Once more, en Francais.
It's been pointed out that the French dub voice actor sounds much better,,

I never was into Mario. Maybe when text2movie gets better I can request Mario to play in Predator

Jay thoughts.
Very much as expected, a series of set pieces with a very minimal storyline throughout.
It kept jumping to the next bit with what could easily have been plot lines smushing the pieces together. Instead it's a "The kids will follow, just add another funny bit"
It was amusing enough, though, and Chris Pratt was alright I suppose.

The end of the movie features a musical medley which doesn't flow well at all, and is just disjointed bits of music pieced together.
The classic Sonic trilogy had better medleys than that.

We really enjoyed it for what it was. It looked fantastic and I could see Nintendo updating the game characters to look like the film characters now.

Loved all the in jokes. Yeah a better story would have been nice but for a first proper try, I think it sets up Nintendo for creating more films both in the Mario universe and it's other franchises.
