I admit this started off a bit slow, but it certainly got better. It was just so nice seeing those grotesque designs for the enemies. My favorite was probably the piranha plant. I loved how it had a single line for a stem. In that way, it was more cartoonish than the actual thing! I love the abstract animation.
I thought maybe there was something wrong with the audio when the guy started talking. A silent movie with color? I've certainly never seen that before! This is pretty unique, even for Mario. I like that music.
