SUPER MARIO BROS.
Where Avatar fails, this infamously panned video game adaptation succeeds. Both have bizarre worlds in need of saving by awkward outsiders, but this one is actually a lot of fun. Watching the Mario bros. save the Mushroom Kingdom from the germ-phobic King Koopa is actually a ton of fun, and the movie’s world has an internal logic and consistency for which it doesn’t get enough credit. And that scene where Mario and Luigi explain that their last name is actually “Mario”? Genius. Plus, it’s all over in 90 minutes!
