    I am so completely surprised. This looks AMAZING. I love the tone, the look, the irreverent banter. I really did not expect to want to see this and now I can't wait.

    I am reminded of the Mario Brothers movie from the 80's. It was a lot of fun, and awful, and I'm looking forward to this movie in the same sort of vein.

      There is an innate quality shown in these trailers that suggests it'll actually be a good movie, rather then be a passable game-to-film adaption. The filmmakers are already working on a sequel, and if movie is a good as the trailers suggest, they have every right to be excited. I can see this blowing up into a huge movie franchise quite easily.

            I feel exactly the same way. This is probably the movie I'm most excited about this year. And I guess Lion King as well.

      I really love that movie. Not really in a "so bad it's good" way, but just because they took what little Mario lore there was at the time and tried to make it realistic in a really fun way.
