Super Mario Bros.: The Movie Review

It’s time for more Bad Movie Reviews! This time, we travel to 1993 New York to look at Nintendo’s first… and last attempt at making a live action film, Super Mario Bros.: The Movie! This strange film stars some big names from the era like Bob Hoskins, Dennis Hopper, and John Lequizamo. So, grab some fungus, don’t forget your tool belt, and keep an eye out for Bob-ombs! It’s Mario time.

Plus, we talk tons of entertainment news including Zoe Kravitz Catwoman casting, Batwoman’s review bombing, Marvel Studios, Disney+, and more.

Bad Movie Reviews: Masters of the Universe

What makes a movie good or bad? What if you enjoyed it? Does that make it good? Welcome to our new segment, Bad Movie Reviews. In this series, we’re going to discuss films that are notoriously bad, critically, but we still get a kick out of for one reason or another. Maybe we loved it as kids, or maybe it’s so bad it’s good. In our first outing, we travel to 1987 for the live action He-Man film, Masters of the Universe!

As always, we talk news! This week, it’s mostly DC stuff with a statement from Warner Bros. about Joker, the status of Lex Luthor in Crisis on Infinite Earths, and a new backdoor pilot coming to the final season of Arrow… plus maybe a bit more.
