Forums - Nintendo Discussion - IHE Talks Mario Animated Movie

Alex from I Hate Everything talks with Alex from NintendoLife (incidentally) about Illumination's Mario animated movie:

Look, I get that he doesn't like Illumination's movies, but when he says he'd rather have the people behind The Emoji Movie do it, that is where he loses his credibility.

Then again, what else can we expect from the guy who's channel is called "I Hate Everything"? It'd be like asking Howard Stern to describe Women's March.

Well, share your thoughts on, well, the IHE guy's thoughts.

despite his name, there is sound logic and reason behind each IHE video, and he does make valid points to why he dislikes each of the things that he does. he has also made multiple videos shaming Illumination's practices in the animation industry and i kind of agree with him. Illumination makes movies by cutting every possible corner just to try to maximize profits, and for that reason I cant see the Mario movie being very good. because they are just using to Mario name to gain publicity and then cut enough corners to lower costs to a point where they are guaranteed profit regardless of quality.

And yet their movies make millions with every release.

Guess audiences seem to love Illumination's movies despite the reviews.

Are you insinuating that audiences are idiots?



I really don't like the idea of a Mario movie. The medium is not suited to represent a franchise that is all gameplay and almost no story. They would have been better making a WindWaker movie. Cell shaded animation is fine, they can make cute mascots and characters, the plot is simple to follow...



You know it deserves the GOTY.

Come join The 2018 Obscure Game Monthly Review Thread.

The part were said to get the people who made the emoji movie to make it i.e. Sony (don't think Nintendo would have them make a Mario movie) made me cringe a little. Also I don't get why they think this movie needs to be or should be aimed at adults in anyway?

Overall while I get were they're coming from I don't think they make much of a case to worry me in anyway. Also I do know IHE has a big bias against minions. I mean I get why he hates them, but they still became a worldwide sensation that many adore still to this day whether he likes it or not. Also something not aimed at kids not adults which I feel like he doesn't get.

A Zelda movie would be even harder to pull off with Illumination. Their movies are about unbound silliness, whereas Zelda is about fighting horrific monsters to save the world.

It'd be like if Disney were to make a Stephen King movie.

But there have been many children's movies that appeal to adults as well. Disney has been able to do so for years, by mixing lighthearted adventures, great heroes and truly deplorable villains.

if you make anything flashy enough, people will notice it. Illumination is fully aware of this, but it doesnt mean they make good movies



I’m cautiously optimistic about this one!



I watch Beyond the trailer (Grace Randolph) and she made some pretty good points that i thought of too. When you look at Illuminations numbers, they are huge globall around the world and are really good at publishing movies everywhere. Nintendo being a global company, that's a really good partership. Studios like pixar (which would have never worked btw since they have a theme park st Universal, wouldn't make any sense) have much more difficulties getting success outside the US. And Illuminate don't make terrible movies, its just that lately their franchises are more dumb and child oriented but hey lots of people like them since 2 of them made a billion dollar, which doesn't happen a lot with animation movies (i think only Frozen, DM3 and Minions did it maybe Dory and Toy Story 3 not sure.) So with Nintendo working on with them, we might end up with some interesting adventure with a global success. Here is the video: https://youtu.be/wUqTckOxx4g

 

Edit : Also, for a first movie from Nintendo  (yes the first idk what you're talking about), it is really important that they have some success to it and Illumination don't have many flops if any and their movies are never that horrible just dumb franchise (which again, they won't make one with Mario since the franchise is already established.). Cause if the movie flops, even if its amazingly good, its really bad news for the theme park and attracting people to buy a Switch. 

 

Anyways, let's wait for the first trailer before we freak out. Let's be happy Nintendo is willing to expand their horizons and port their franchises to the big screen again. A successful mario movie (which have all the reasons to be), will probably bring more movies and TV shows. Who doesn't want a Zelda or Metroid movie? METROID could be possible with the slow death of the Aliens franchise

Despicable Me was good though.
