Remember The Game #126 - The Wizard
I think we've had more requests to review this movie on the show than just about any game we haven't covered yet. I had no idea it had the following it did, but your wish is my (eventual) command. Get out your Power Gloves, fire up Mario 3, and say "Californiaaaaa" a few times; we're reviewing The Wizard.   Is it a great movie? Not at all. But if you grew up in the NES's prime years, The Wizard is a 2 hour trip back to your childhood. It's basically a long-ass Nintendo commercial, and it's awesome. My buddy Tyler returns to the show this week, and man oh man did we have a good time talking about Fred Savage and Lucas and all the other weirdos in this movie.    And as always, before we get to the main course, you get a delicious appetizer in the RTG Industries Infamous Intro! I talk about what Venom wears under the symbiote, would I like another TMNT movie in the style of the original trilogy, why I won't give out another perfect review score on the show, and more!   We also have a spin-off edition of 'Play One, Remake One, Erase One'; it's 'WATCH One, Remake One, Erase One'!! We're talking gaming movies on the 'Crappy video game movie' edition of the show, starring DOOM, The Super Mario Bros. Movie, and the Street Fighter movie.   If you want to skip to something specific, here's where to go:   0:00 - 2:40 Intro    2:40 - 6:33  Initial self-indulgent rambling   6:33 - 13:40 'Blowing In The Cartridge' (Listener comments & questions, and Letter Time!)   13:40  - 24:56 'WATCH One. Remake One. Erase One.'   24:56 - 27:23 What have I been playing?   27:23 - 30:10Listener's 'The Wizard' Memories   30:10 + 'The Wizard' Talk!   Enjoy the podcast!
