Hyperreal Super Mario!

06.23.2009

Remember that loveable, portly Italian plumber from your childhood? You know, the one that eats more mushrooms than your depressed little brother while in search of his damsel in distress. Me neither. Maybe the reason so many of us stopped playing Mario games, is their utter lack of grit or realism. Looking at the video game landscape these days, that indeed does seem to be the name of the game. Check out what happens when artist Anthony Jones envisions Mario, his brother, his woman, and his nemesis as characters in a realistic mob saga. Too cool. You can check out tons more neat Mario art here!

I dont think they should do another stupid movie. An animated film might be cool for the kiddies though?

These drawings are really great.

Speak for yourself, Daniel Barna

I loved playing Super Mario Bros back in the day and I still enjoy Mario titles to this day. I am looking forward to Super Mario Galaxy 2 and New SMB coming later this year for the Wii. Although I like the "grit and realism" in games today, I really appreciate Mario Games for being what they are. Don't get me wrong, I love me some Resident Evil 5, but c'mon, Mario is classic!

The movie, however..... ugh.

I didn't have a problem with the first movie...then again I haven't watched it since I was younger.

They did put too much thought into it. Not creative thought, although they probably thought so. The story didn't have much thought either. What I mean is that they tried too hard to translate a fantasy world to a live action film. They tried giving reasons to how they can do the things they do in the game. Like those stupid boots that let them jump high and like someone said, dinosaurs continued to evolve and that's why there are lizards and shit (evolve so much they look like Dennis Hopper?).

I agree with what you said. It was that bad of a movie.

Great pictures!

Brer - too much thought?? did we see the same movie? I put more thought into take a dump than they put into that horrific thing. At some point, you start to wonder if they set out to intentionally make a bad movie, because it's so incredibly difficult (and depressing) to imagine a world where the mario brothers movie was bad on accident. Because that means, while it was in the middle of failing terribly, people still thought it was somehow a good idea.

Another Mario movie would be awesome. I thought the original put to much thought into it and it became a mess. Animated might be the best way to go but if they did a live action one then I wonder who would make a good mario and luigi.

"Does Mario remind anyone else of Daniel Day-Lewis from There Will Be Blood?"

AGREE. bowser has a donald trump thing going on. peach reminds me of someone too, but i cant put my finger on it.

I'd rather have a Zelda movie before another Mario movie.

whaaaaaaaaaat? Tetris: the movie?!

I say yes on another Mario movie. I say Pixar or Dreamwork (but only the team that worked on Kung Fu Panda).

a new live action movie would be cool. i like the concept of the 1994 movie. (alternate reality where dino's evolved on)
with today's tech, they could definitely go all out.

Studio Ghibli would be amazing as well. Alright, so that's two studio possibilities.


On a side note, I wish we could delete posts aside from just being able to edit them. Accidentally hit refresh and it doubled it my post.

Studio Ghibli has already helped design games, it's only a matter of time before they adapt one to film. Mark my words. Altough I doubt it'll be Mario.

I think the only company that could possibly pull off a Mario film would be Pixar.

Nice art :]

Looks good.

Does Mario remind anyone else of Daniel Day-Lewis from There Will Be Blood?
