    I haven't seen any of these movies yet, though I'd like to see The Super Mario Bros Movie. I have so many happy memories hearing the Mario tunes and sounds coming from a Nintendo 64 to the current gaming consoles.


    Nostalgia has been pervasive in the film world for the last few years, and 2023 was no exception. In the spring, "[u]The Super Mario Bros. Movie"[/u] brought one of the most beloved video game series to life, setting a [u]new record[/u] for the biggest opening weekend of an animated movie in history, surpassing 2019's "Frozen II." After the movie's massive success, [u]Nintendo[/u]announced plans to release a live-action adaptation of another classic game, The Legend of Zelda. Disney also stayed on the nostalgia train, reviving one of their classics with a live-action remake of [u]The Little Mermaid,[/u] starring Beyoncé prodigy Halle Bailey.
