A Brief History Of Mario's First Film

Super Mario Bros2023's The Super Mario Bros. Movie was a real "local plumber makes good" story that the media loved to frame as making up for the 1993 film loosely based on happenings in the Mushroom Kingdom, but if you weren't around back then, you may not understand what all the fuss was about.  That's where Dan Larson steps in.  Digging into what made Super Mario Bros. such a troubled production is a very deep rabbit hole, but Larson condenses the key points down to a half hour tale of discarded drafts, inexperienced directors, and dissatisfied actors for an overview of what went wrong.  Consider it a gateway to a larger topic and a good starting place.  I'll say it once again: it's not a perfect movie, but I enjoyed it and have happy memories of watching it.
