    Mario Seemingly infinite Mario parodies! Some of the funniest Flash movies ever conceived!

Edit: Wow more than 150k views and over 500 reviews! Thanks to the NG staff and viewers for the Official Mario collection! :-)

This is my very first sprite movie starring the characters from "Super Mario World" featuring the music by Coldplay. This is a movie that speaks against racism, discrimination, and war, made in a way I hope that people of all age groups and Mario fans can understand, treasure, and pass it on...

I really enjoyed this game as a child and I hope I can share some of it's magic with you in a meaningful way.

Excellent Flash!

Very touching and moving flash movie. The end caught me by surprise and possibly could have been shortened to just the first set of words there about us not getting second chances. That would have been short and sweet and to the point and probably made a bigger impact over all without trying to defend that statement afterwards through what could possibly be interpreted as a political message. That way you're not maybe alienating some of the viewers who might support war if only somewhat ironically to prevent all out anarchy. Of course then there's the possibility that even the first message about no second chances could be discarded by someone who believes in reincarnation or the afterlife. /sigh. Definately more power to you for being brave enough to say it like you mean it vs. trying to be politically correct about it. But over all still a great movie and very touching and one I'll watch again and again, I'm sure.

The sprites were well done and doing them backwards was really cool to watch.

After reading some other reviews I realized why he jumped in the lava, which puzzled me at first but if you connect it to the broken heart later in the movie (after going in reverse) it becomes obvious. Really great idea there and made the movie all the more touching. Keep up the good work!

People find this review helpful!

the song really matched what was going on. it really did have true meaning too... I thought the best part was when everything was going backwards haha that was ill.

good pacing, try doing something more original

I can't give graphics points for ripping off game sprites (or sound points for unoriginal and unmodified music), but I thought the staging and choices of shots were pretty good. If you could do your own art and make your own music (or meet people who can do either), I think you have got potential for doing something cool. Just have to stick your neck out a little.

I am very impressed with this

Coldplay and mario are both great in their own different ways and together! Not only did you show great mario footage and quality sound, but also it related to each other. Fantastic Job
