So who’s watching this in the theater day 1?

I will probably watch it on it's first weekend, so day two or three.

Yeah, I dont mind Marios voice. If he talked like he does in the game, it would kill the movie for me.

Yeah, that's something I've thought more about over the past day. We all love Charles Martinet's voice as Mario. But, it's never been in full sentences. It's usually an over the top "wahoo" or maybe a few words like "welcome to Mario Kart" in Mario Kart 64. 

Idk if I would've been able to handle that way of talking over an entire movie

I actually do not like Charles Martinet's voice as Mario.  It emphasizes the kiddie/cartoony direction for Mario which I haven't really been a fan of.

8-bit Mario was actually not cartoony or kiddie per se.  8-bit graphics are neutral in that a person can imagine things the way that they want.  Final Fantasy started out in 8-bit, and it eventually evolved into ultra realistic graphics.  But with Mario they evolved it into a more kiddie/cartoony direction.  I prefer to think of Mario as a tough blue collar guy who fights Kaiju like King Kong and Godzilla.  The Charles Martinet voice doesn't fit that image of Mario for me.

I like the voice of Mario in the trailer, and I also really like Bowser's voice too.  I hope they fix the animation for Mario and Luigi before the movie is released though.  That would be my only complaint about the trailer.

Fix what exactly? All of the animations looked great. The sequence with Luigi especially.

I think it looks great and can not wait for it.

That decition was made for Mario 64 and they never looked back. Mario 64 uses Zelda OOT's engine but look at the difference in art direction. For Zelda they did tried a cartoony look for Wind Waker on game cube and then went back to more realistic look. With Mario they never tried anything else. They stuck with the cartoony look.

Probably to you. He is absolutely right about Mario’s voice post N64 era. Charles Martinet Mario sounds lame as hell.

Yeah, that's why it's so popular and beloved.



Mario went in a more cartoony bend from Super Mario Bros. 3 and Mario World already.
