Over on the Cavalcade of Awesome, I looked at 14 vintage ads for video games based on movies. So this week on Held Over, I'm looking at video game movies.
Here's an ad for the atrocious movie adaptation of the video game Super Mario Brothers. It starred Bob Hoskins and John Leguizamo in roles that should have ended their Hollywood careers.
Other video game movies:
- Joysticks (1983)
- War Games (1983)
- Cloak and Dagger (1984)
- The Wizard (1989)
See the Super Mario Bros trailer:
