Mario Brothers, a tragedy in three parts (1, 2, 3). Potentially more to come, too! Enjoy! (Warning: Flash)

Pixels come to life... but I could only 3/4 pay attention to it because I am at work and I have to keep one eye on the lookout.

surprisingly powerful

Yes indeed. Not quite Verdi or Wagner, but (especially for what it has to work with) very nicely done. The music adds a lot of atmosphere.

What the shit? Parallaxing backgrounds in the castle? Seems so ... wrong .

I gotta say, loved the first two, but the third dragged a bit. Hopefully they'll make more. It's a hilarious take on the way drama is produced by images and symbols. I kept thinking of LoTR and the way it was visually dramatic, but yet enjoyably cheesy.

WALDORF: Oh, that was wonderful, wonderful, wasn't it Statler? (notices Statler is missing) Good grief, did he jump?

Very good use of flash to tell a dramatic story. The music helps the mood as well...all in all, a pretty good serial.

It's good to know that Mario and Luigi were able to patch over their differences.

This is the first time I ever thought about the fact that those menacing castles were actually the princesses' and not Bowser's.
