This baby just bumped "Grayson" out of the Editor's pick spot on iFilm.com and has only been up 2 days now. Check it out and let me know what ya think!

Mario is DEAD. Under the leadership of Master Chief, XBOX and Playstation have joined forces in an attempt to destroy the world of Nintendo once and for all. Luigi and Link must reunite friends both old and new in what looks to be Nintendo's last stand. Larry Longstreth (creator of "Zombies in my Neighborhood) and newcomer Jacob Drake present

"NINTENDO: OLDSCHOOL REVOLUTION"

yeah but c'mon... your name has somethign to do with that opinion and that's what is driving me nuts about this thing already. I'm getting so many emails asking when I'm going to continue the "Nintendo vs. XBOX/PS" war and stuff. I mean, clearly I'm a Nintendo fan but I made this thing to be fun to watch also. I didn't mean to start an internet war... and that's exactly what's happened. Forget who your favorite is and enjoy it...

By the way... here's one of the MANY emails I've gotten... I laughed but I also thought it was flattering:

Fan-friggin-tastic!

I saw your Yahoo post and followed the iFilm link. Loved it.
Absolutely loved it.

I've got a Nintendo, Super Nintendo, Gameboy Color, Gameboy Advance,
Nintendo 64, and Game Cube here at home, and I've played the hell out of
every one of them. The heart of the story, good gameplay vs.
blood/sex/violence, is one I'm really into.

Every few seconds, I was nodding and smiling at jokes that the lifetime
gamers get. (Luigi forgiving past differences with Sonic and his
gang... beautiful.) My boys (Michael and Joel), are following in their
father's footsteps in terms of borderline video game addiction. This
weekend, I'm going to sit down and watch it again with them.

And the ending... the last line... goosebumps. I **** you not.

Please pass on my compliments to the animator. Everything really came
together in this one. Congrats on a job well done!

That sucked ass. Nice concept, terrible execution.
 
You guys are nuts. First, I have to self promote it to get it seen... iFilm TELLS you to self promote it to get the ball rolling (it's been up for 3 days only). If you don't like it, that's fine... but it certainly wouldn't be voted number 1 out of thousands of films if it "sucked ass". Thanks for the mature opinions tho... and keep on being so supportive!

Oh. You made that yourself?

Why are you self promoting lameass?

I fail to see the problem, it's no different than people in fan art linking to their online archives.

Exactly. In the FANART section. If you're showing off your own work we have a forum for that.

If you see something cool or funny and want to show it around, sure, but if you're trying to push your own works on us, regardless of quality, we have a place for that.

If it's good, then people think "wow, this is great" and share it with others.

I post funny YTMNDs all the time but not the ones I make. If I did, that would be totally lame of me.

The Zelda music was a pain the ass because there are about 8 billion awesome versions of it. Try Bearshare and search "Legend of Zelda" by artists like Apocalyptica, John Williams (it's not really him but that's what it's under), The Minibosses, etc... I SOOO wanted to use the temple of time music from 64 but it just didn't fit. CLASSIC.
 
That was great. All the classic characters (the Mario/Donkey Kong people, Sonic and his crew, The Lee bros. from "Double Dragon", Earthworm friggin' Jim!, and was that one of the fighters from "Punch-Out" I saw?).

Yup i believe that is Bald Bull the fighter right before Tyson. :D

And i loved this little film. It was funny, i've shown it to about 4 other people and they all loved it too. Good job :up:

You want me to explain why it sucked ass? Half the characters arent even Nintendo related and it kinda renders your point moot when Sega makes Sonic games for EVERY console. Not to mention the designs were elementary school at best. And god, did I want to hit the voice "actors." The guy who did Luigi was particularly bad. Like I said, nice concept, terrible execution.

Thanks for your honesty... but dude, 4 days - 16,000 views. Check the reviews... I'm getting A++++ all up and down the boards. I'm getting emails from grown men telling me they were misty eyed (ridiculous, I realize that), emails saying "FINALLY", emails saying "I forgot how good they used to be", and emails saying "I WANT MORE NOW!". I understand the production quality wasn't up to par, and I explained the SONIC thing if you watch it... "bury past differences". Originally there was a line that sooner or later everybody had to choose a side but that was getting to anal, and it was meant to be fun, not a highly detailed, over analysis of games. Thanks for you honesty - I mean that, but I totally disagree with anybdoy who says "it sucks".
