    My goodness, have you ever seen a nicer looking movie? You could just drown in the backgrounds. It's so wide and utilizes every inch of it.

    A pretty fair improvement on the first film is just about every way. There's more of a plot and is much more interesting to follow. It's structured much better. The visuals evoke the first film without trying to look exactly like it, and come out looking a lot cooler. Great music too. It's still kind of a typical big studio movie that has some really cheesy moments. The lead is fiercely generic as well.
    Also damn de-aging effects have come a long way. Young Jeff Bridges looks so terrible.

    It starts at a Bauhaus concert so of course it's great. A lot more dramatic/romantic than something I would normally like but damn, this is good. Nearly every moment is really beautiful. It's slow and thoughtful, but never boring. Certainly unexpected from the director of Top Gun and Beverly Hills cop 2.

    Overall, it's just a dumb but not terrible kids movie. As a film adaptation of mario, it's bizarre and fascinating. Every choice feels like the wrong one, and it seems like everyone involved had only a passing knowledge of the games.
