    Retronauts Episode 450: Super Mario Bros. (The 1993 Movie)

    Retronauts Episode 450: Super Mario Bros. (The 1993 Movie)

    In 1993, Hollywood did the seemingly impossible by releasing the first true video game adaptation: Super Mario Bros. And to put it simply, things didn't exactly go as planned. Thanks to studio meddling, fired directors, injured actors, and compromised visions, Super Mario Bros. lurched into theaters in May of 1993, and quickly retreated in shame when the general public didn't know what to make of it. But are there hidden gems lurking underneath this film's fungus-covered exterior? On this episode, join Bob Mackey, Ray Barnholt, and Ryan Hoss and Steven Applebaum of Super Mario Bros. The Movie Archive as the crew explores this fascinating mess of a motion picture. Listen in, and learn to embrace mustache-free Luigi!

Essential

Retronauts delivers exactly what the kick starter promised after the demise of 1UP, knowledgable host who know video games inside out and give great insight to the games lineage, production writing and influence.
