“How many people are you willing to step on to get what you want?”
There have been quite a few Super Mario Bros. live action re-imaginings but this one I actually like. Oh and then there was that actual live action Super Mario Bros. movie… but we won’t talk about that. Mario was produced and directed by Joe Nicolosi for this year’s SXSW Film Festival.
“At most of the major film festivals, cute little mini-shorts run before each screening. These shorts, called bumpers, usually focus on the theme of that year’s festival. Sundance bumpers often focus on the independent spirit or going against the system. Smaller film festivals like SXSW or Fantastic Fest usually aim for funny. [/film]”
Mario takes an indie spin on our beloved franchise which seems to be the trend now-a-days (see links below), but I can’t say that I mind.
