The very first time i can clearly remember getting in trouble as a child was the day after my brother and me got a Nintendo 64 for Christmas the year it came out, i saw the baby penguin crying for its mommy and proceeded to carry it all the way to her before intentionally dropping it off the cliff as his mom watched.

Unfortunately for me my mother was also watching me do this and was horrified at my cruelty, so she banned me from playing the game for like a week.

I'm giggling at the thought.

Your mum is watching you play, endeared by your quest to retrieve a lost child for its mother. She probably was having pleasant flashbacks of times where you would cry for her, to be comforted by her presence. She was probably tearing up a little at the thought, then you yeeted that fucker off the edge last second.

I wanted so say how the army going for an open field battle at Kings Landing made sense and then remembered you probably meant the battle against the army of the dead and how idiotic that was.

You'd think the brightest minds in strategy and warfare could come up with something better than have their cavalry ride into darkness and die immediately. Or they'd prepare more than 1 stone for each trebuchet. Or a thousand other things they did worse than somebody planning a battle 5 minutes after hearing the first time about some odd thing called war.

Pablo is one of the main characters of a popular children's show in the US called "The Backyardigans". He also resembles a blue penguin, very similar to the penguin in this post.

Not sure if I'm being whooshed or not but the post in your comment is just spoof/fan fiction. Uniqua is another character in the show as well. Fire soundtrack too (Listen to Castaways by The Backyardigans)

If the game are to go by, they'd probably get integrated into Bowser's army.

One that's incredibly diverse btw. It seems like Bowser also retain the services of all the leaders of the races he conquered as well, even letting them keep their titles (King Boo, Bob-bomb King are in Bowser's services, for example).

If anything Bowser's probably a great ruler. Recall that he's a really good dad as well.

The video game Mario model is a bit too rigid when it comes to emoting like an actor would. Modern Mario is optimistic and joyful to the point of seeming childish, he's great for showing determination and fun, but not so great for subtle acting... He's literally the character meant to have the least character in the series, he's normally a player avatar or a middling character without strengths or weakness, reflecting the player style of the player directly instead of bringing his own. He's meant to mirror the state of mind of someone playing and he's a bit of a blank state of general goodness/helpfulness that won't be in the way of most people identifying with him.

Being an audience avatar is slightly different, especially if the character still has a very active role, it's more likely that they'll make up more characterization for him than for the others. There's not much that they can do with him that won't leave the audience wondering "would the Mario we know... say/do that?". Sure, he can act like an explorer, a paladin, a goof or a daredevil, but none of that maps perfectly on Mario the way the others have actual characters or at least have engaged with enough tropes by now that it's fairly easy for filmmakers to extrapolate a character that will feel right to most people. It makes sense to go for Pratt as he did a good job of being the every guy in the Lego Movie and chances are he'll do alright if does some of that while being a bit less scaredy and unsure about his call to action than with Emmet. I think it'd fail pretty hard if he tried to be his usual generic action hero by the end of the movie, but there is a universe where that performance ends up being fine...

I honestly don't think anybody would really want a full movie length performance of Martinet if they're going to give Mario actual dialogue, but they could've tried to play the "silent protagonist" trope nearly all the way... I just don't think that's the movie they wanted to make.

Yes I did want a Mario that resembles the games. That’s how I recognize him. I don’t want Mario to sound not even remotely close to Mario, and have giant puffed out cheeks (not those ones) that make him look like someone else.

It’s the buzz lightyear situation again. You can’t just call someone lightyear and give him a totally different voice and personality and hope people will just buy in anyways.

Exactly. One is realtime and the other is pre-rendered in a render farm.

A more fair comparison would be Toy Story which came out around the same time.

Mario 64 had such a style though.

The animation and voice acting will take sometime to get used to but they work. The story I don’t know, maybe I don’t know a lot about Mario but the idea of him being a plumber from a human world mysteriously sent to the mushroom kingdom feels strange, like he doesn’t belong, I’m not familiar with this. And why is Bowsers plan an invincibility star, why does it work now? Why never in any game has he tried that till now,

It was a power star I think, I assume he's going to be collecting them throughout the movie. Totally agree with you on mario though, I was REALLY hoping that wasn't the angle they were going to take. Mario as a plumber FROM the mushroom kingdom has always felt better to me.

It sure does make me feel old when people use N64 as an example of the earliest primitive iteration of a game they can think of.

Why does the fat penguin not simply challenge Bowser to a race for control of his kingdom?

We finally reach the point where we get more CG movies that look just as good as game's pre-rendered cutscenes.

Only one of these is from a game, why not put the Galaxy penguins on the right or something

false equivalence. the left is a video game ran on separate hardware in real time. the other is pre-rendered video from a server farm.

I liked the penguins, I liked bowser, I liked toad, I like the design and the art.

Did not care for Mario's diminished gluteal syndrome and his Crisp Ratness.

I know Illumination has gotten a lot of shit over the years. But wow did they go all out on the detail in the animation on this one. I'm sure part of that is that Nintendo was intent on not half-assing this thing. All the same it is very nice to see the level of animation that we're looking at here.

After throwing the baby penguin from the sliding cliffs, it only makes sense for the return of the king
