That's my birthday. What a horrible birthday present!

It's the day after my birthday. I'll gladly accept it as a belated b-day gift. LOL

I love Steelbooks, and I have yet to actually see this movie. I'd love to get this.

Yes, I know the movie is suppose to be pretty terrible, but terrible movies are good for that very reason sometimes, so, yay. ^^

Yeah, to me this movie is in the "So bad that it's good" category. I liked those jet boots and laser-shooting Super Scopes, though.

If there's nothing else on TV to see but this movie, I'd gladly watch it.

I watched this as a kid, and I remember liking it. I probably wouldn't like it as much now, but I know I've seen much worse video game movies. Maybe expectations were too high.

Jan 13 would have been better, for that date is friday the 13!

I can't wait actually for this. I don't think it's super great but I have liked it, and still do after rewatching it on Discovery Family recently.

Younger Nintendo fans can't understand that it made slightly more sense because of what we were lead to believe when it came to Mario's origins with Brooklyn. That was the American canon after the Super Mario Bros Super Show (and because there was never any in-game references to anything else back then) until Yoshi's Island. That always pissed me off as a kid seeing Baby Mario and Luigi getting dropped off at a Mushroom Kingdom house at the end of that game.

haha rare to see Blu-ray releases being covered here; but yeah the SMB movie has released on Blu-ray format years ago just in the European countries, but not yet the US, and I'm sure it's region-free also. The new art for this Zavvi steelbook is pretty neat though. I still like the original poster art the best.

..................why?

This movie was released in theaters on my bday (May 28th)

Maybe that's why I love it so much, been wanting this on Blu-ray for along time.

We still can't get Evolution or Idiocracy on Blu Ray but a collector's edition of this now exists.

*insert original Farnsworth quote here*

why

why are they doing this

As much as I hated the film, I gotta admit the boxart looks decent.
