Before I go into my review it should be known im a huge fan of this film. Yes I enjoyed the games but I remember going to see it in the cinema and it was very memorable experience even more so because there was a Jurassic Park trailer before the film started which made the audience go nuts especially the kids as it scared the hell out of us hearing the T-Rex roar in a multiplex. I was 11 at the time and after the film finished I was buzzing. As time passes I never think of films as dated, I watched the Blu-Ray and loved it even more because it was just great to go back to Chester cinema in 1993/94 and be a kid again. I remember my parents buying me the VHS when it was released. The transfer isn't amazing, but certainly not bad either, I was satisfied

This comes with decent extras as well with a very cool making of and behind the scenes extras which to my surprise made it on here as the film if I remember bombed at the box office. My only grunt is I'm not a fan of the artwork and would much prefer the original cover artwork but overall a great release for a underrated 90's kids flick. BUY

"Trust The Fungus" should have been on the poster. It's always gratifying when a movie that is universally maligned turns out to not only be perfectly watchable, but strangely enjoyable and fascinating. There's a lot of strangeness, off-kilter details and eccentric moments throughout Super Mario Bros. that are normally smoothed out of such high budget movies, to ensure that what's left isn't going to be too weird. Clearly this movie gives most people headaches, but since there is no such thing as objectivity when discussing how you feel about any artistic work, I honestly really liked this film, without a trace of irony (Ironic movie-watching is anathema). This is heresy to many, but of the two big-budget films featuring dinosaurs that came out in 1993, the other being Jurassic Park of course, I'd much rather rewatch this one.

This blu-ray is especially worthwhile for the fantastic hour long documentary which is one of those rare extras where everyone is honest about what a debacle this production was and no one pretends it was all fun and games. Co-director Annabel Jankel sums up my feelings when she says, "I watched it for the first time in 20 years and funnily enough I really rather enjoyed it and I found myself just smiling and feeling kind of warm and toasty inside, despite the fact that it's had this terrible reputation and repercussions over the years...[it's] crazy and bonkers and marvelous."

I like the this rather over-blown silly film. Everyone involved is clearly having fun with an utterly crazy idea blown out of all sensible proportions. It's a good laugh, and surprisingly the rather pedestrian visual effects have stood the test of time. It's an entertaining little romp.
