About this deal

The Mario Movie clearly isn’t high art, but I genuinely don’t think it’s insultingly dumb dross either. Most of them have also scored it far too low, with 36 out of 56 of them on metacritic [for example] rating it somewhere between 60 to 20 out of 100, which is laughable. Not sure if I can say it deserves all the success it gets, because it has received a simply flabbergasting amount of success, but I’m glad it’s received a good amount of it!

I do think Mario movie is one of the relatively few animated movies which is really worth watching on a big screen though; there is just so much going on with the visuals that seeing it all in a theatre gives that extra oomph. I bought the Lord of the Rings trilogy special edition that each had 4 DVDs, two for the movies (extended edition) and the other two filled with hours of pure extra content.The critics might warn us that something is the cinematic equivalent of junk food, but indulging in a bit of junk now and then is, if anything, a luxury to be relished.

certainty on any major project that film is then digitised before its edited, pretty much all post production is digital nowadays, because its not only cheaper, but more precise, allows more controls and options, better control of colour correction, easier integration of digital effects, compositing, titles, credits etc, and also is the only realistic way to add other language versions and content versions for tv/airlines, accesibility features like closed captions, etc. Except that belief is based on a similar ignorance to that of the "critics" regarding what makes a movie like this "insubstantial" or indeed substantial.Sometimes early-days on-demand isn't necessarily cheaper than going to the movies, but happy for people if they can see it and couldn't before. Personally, I think what would be fun is if they did what Pixar does and make an animated "blooper reel" for the Blu-Ray release. They were shot and edited entirely digitally, before finally transfering to film once complete, to get that "look" of adding the grain, softness and difference in colour range.
