SUPER MARIO BROS. (1993) Commentary Track

Nothing is impossible, listeners. Improbable? Unlikely? Sure, but never impossible. If you need any more proof, just look at the new Nintendo movie that hit theaters this week, something fans thought they'd never see again after the subject of this BOP n' A Tragedy audio commentary, 1993's Super Mario Bros! You're heard the jokes, the brutal behind-the-scenes stories, and the lamentations of Leguizamo, but the BOP Crew (okay, mostly Jamie) aren't content with leaving the first video game movie on the scrapheap. Between the eight (!) scripts that slowly mutated a fantasy comedy into a cyberpunk thriller-- then tried to walk it back at the last minute, the truly stellar makeup and animatronic work, a cast no version of this movie deserved, and an unforgettable cityscape that rivals the best sci-fi worlds of the 90's, there's plenty more to this bob-omb than you've been led to believe, and if Cody can avoid dying from fungal poisoning before the end of the commentary, you might hear it all! So grab your THWOMP boots, cover up your framed photo of Bob Hoskins, and get ready to trust mushrooms with your mortal soul, because Box Office Pulp is here to walk the dinosaur... whatever it is that means.
