KoopaTV's Live Reactions to the PyeongChang 2018's Opening Ceremony

By LUDWIG VON KOOPA - I'm watching for Cappy; the others for attractive exotic Olympic girls.

We cover the Olympics on Earth because of the disturbing intersection of Earth and our world that has been going on, and the Olympics are the most high-profile event the entire world takes place in. It's attracted the attention of our nemeses, Mario and Cappy, in the past. That makes watching the Opening and Closing ceremonies of the Olympics a very value-added activity for KoopaTV.

Part of what is great about our reaction logs is that you get to see the immediate and oftentimes brilliant analysis from your favourite KoopaTV staff members (and all five of us appear in this log) on-the-fly with no filter, and probably in a way you would not have thought of by yourself.

The log includes our geography knowledge, the frustrating ordeal of having to watch this via NBC (versus the BBC and the CBC), geopolitical analysis between South and North Korea, the creepiness of targeted advertising, our opinion on female athletes' looks... and... well, you'll have to get through the whole thing to see if Cappy got involved. Plus, a lot of videogame references. A lot.

[8:12 PM] RawkHawk2010: @Kamek GET YOUR ASS IN HERE
[8:12 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Oh I guess Vortex in BBC land wouldn't have it now.
[8:13 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I don't remember wot he did last year to watch it with us.
[8:13 PM] RawkHawk2010: Vortex is probably playing Breath of the Wild.
[8:13 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I think BBC had it on-demand and he just tried to watch alongside us.
[8:13 PM] RawkHawk2010: Yeah
[8:13 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Wendy and friend-of-KoopaTV wouldn't have NBC either.
[8:13 PM] RawkHawk2010: and passed out not long after we stopped.
[8:14 PM] RawkHawk2010: pizza

[8:14 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: They're checking in with Sean White.
[8:14 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Uh...are we in totally different places?
[8:14 PM] RawkHawk2010: The narrator is like a plumper Lester Holt.
[8:15 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Because I thought the opening ceremonies started.
[8:15 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Is Sean White that guy from E3 2009?
[8:15 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Or 2008?

[8:16 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: There's no Opening Ceremony.
[8:17 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: It's just this NBC dude talking now with a bunch of crap on the sidebar.

[8:17 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "I have a 22 daughter"
[8:17 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "who doesn't want to be in the same zipcode as me"
[8:17 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Mikaela Shiffrin.
[8:17 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: So where the hell are the opening ceremonies?
[8:18 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Is this like The Game Awards where they had a pre-pre-show, a pre-show, and then the show?
[8:18 PM] RawkHawk2010: This is like the election debates where they "start" at 8:00 but the first hour is recapping.
[8:18 PM] RawkHawk2010: so yes
[8:18 PM] RawkHawk2010: Though this could be worse.
[8:18 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: It could?
[8:18 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I'd rather watch Coca-Cola commercials.
[8:19 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I'm not paying any attention to these people talking.
[8:19 PM] RawkHawk2010: It could just be a camera fixated on an empty stage.
[8:19 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Katie Couric is a fraud.
[8:19 PM] RawkHawk2010: I though you liked alliteration tho.
[8:19 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...It doesn't make up for being a crappy journalist.
[8:19 PM] RawkHawk2010: BBC's Katty Kay just sounds made-up tho.
[8:20 PM] RawkHawk2010: And stupid.
[8:20 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Shouldn't Vortex know about the BBC's people?
[8:20 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Wot do you know?
[8:20 PM] RawkHawk2010: This would actually be better with Matt Lauer. >.>
[8:20 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: 23andme.com commercial.
[8:21 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Wot if we got a KoopaTV commercial during the Olympics?
[8:21 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Is that a Virtual Reality headset?
[8:21 PM] RawkHawk2010: We're getting different ads based on location.
[8:21 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Oh.
[8:21 PM] RawkHawk2010: Wait.
[8:22 PM] RawkHawk2010: Did you see a hamburger?
[8:22 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Yes, Big Mac.
[8:22 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Then Toyota.
[8:22 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Then Intel True VR.
[8:22 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I keep getting VR ads because I was talking about VR in here?
[8:22 PM] RawkHawk2010: rofl
[8:22 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: So is Discord desktop app collecting cookies or something?
[8:22 PM] RawkHawk2010: Yeah I'm not getting those.
[8:22 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: And giving those to NBC?
[8:22 PM] RawkHawk2010: That's scary.
[8:22 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Got Coca-Cola commercials about tacos.
[8:23 PM] RawkHawk2010: I got everything you got except VR ones.
[8:23 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: BECAUSE I MENTIONED COCA-COLA IN HERE
[8:23 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Miracle on the Han"
[8:23 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: They're trying to talk about the Olympics in terms of the future of the world.
[8:24 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: So are these people talking live
[8:24 PM] RawkHawk2010: Katie Couric is obsessed with national tension.
[8:24 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: or at 6 AM?
[8:24 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: This morning?
[8:24 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "We'll be watching this as the night goes on."
[8:25 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: So..the Olympic Opening Ceremonies already happened then.
[8:25 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: So why are they expecting surprises? <_<
[8:25 PM] RawkHawk2010: Maame Biney is a maame.
[8:25 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Or are they going to do the Opening Ceremonies twice?
[8:25 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Sounds like an Ace Attorney plot.
[8:25 PM] RawkHawk2010: By night they meant their night.
[8:25 PM] RawkHawk2010: Not ours.
[8:25 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: One Opening Ceremony is an alibi
[8:25 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: and the other is where a murder happens.
[8:25 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: It's morning in Korea.
[8:25 PM] RawkHawk2010: If they're faking then they'll break the fourth wall eventually.
[8:25 PM] RawkHawk2010: Oh.
[8:26 PM] RawkHawk2010: That's not normal is it?
[8:26 PM] RawkHawk2010: In Rio it was at night.
[8:26 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Rio was only one hour away from America.
[8:26 PM] RawkHawk2010: yes and it was at night.
[8:27 PM] RawkHawk2010: I thought all olympic ceremonies were at night.
[8:27 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: In Pyeongchang it's 10:27 AM right now.
[8:27 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: So they are 14 hours ahead of EST.
[8:27 PM] RawkHawk2010: But it was night for them when it aired right?
[8:27 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: So when the Opening Ceremonies ACTUALLY HAPPENED here at 6 AM EST, it was 8 PM Korean time.
[8:28 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Got another VR app commercial.
[8:28 PM] RawkHawk2010: Then what the NBC dudes said made sense if it was live.
[8:28 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: So this was filmed 14 hours ago?
[8:28 PM] RawkHawk2010: yes probably
[8:29 PM] RawkHawk2010: They'd be up 24/7 both watching the olympics and reporting it over 10 hours later.
[8:29 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: It's starting.
[8:31 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: 5 elementary school kids as "the designated tour guides"
[8:31 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ala Ahlbi Ur'gaid?
[8:31 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Well, I hate them already.
[8:31 PM] RawkHawk2010: the hell is this
[8:32 PM] RawkHawk2010: Is THIS the opening ceremony?

[8:34 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: You need to log into your cable provider.
[8:34 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: And have any ad-blocking off.
[8:35 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Apparently in Asian cultures, everything "comes from the same energy source" so everyone should live in harmony together.
[8:35 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: (Hence South Korea appeasing?)
[8:35 PM] RawkHawk2010: lol
[8:35 PM] Kamek: ... Does that have anything to do with ad blocking?
[8:35 PM] Kamek: Or was that a coincidence
[8:35 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...nothing to do with ad blocking.
[8:35 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I was just saying what the NBC talking head was saying.
[8:36 PM] RawkHawk2010: 1200 performers

[8:38 PM] RawkHawk2010: "Augmented Reality"
[8:38 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: They're using Augmented Reality for the stuff on stage.
[8:38 PM] RawkHawk2010: I hear Uprising music.
[8:38 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Good to know.
[8:39 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Only 91 nations are showing up this time.
[8:39 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Is that Hillary?
[8:39 PM] RawkHawk2010: How many showed up last time?
[8:39 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...too many.
[8:39 PM] RawkHawk2010: They were probably scared of nukes.
[8:39 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: (That's not Hillary, she's just a blonde Korean)
[8:40 PM] RawkHawk2010: People should have been scared of sewage.
[8:40 PM] RawkHawk2010: In Rio.
[8:40 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Or they didn't qualify.
[8:40 PM] RawkHawk2010: I do like the idea of there being an objective evil villain here.

PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympics Opening Ceremony five children kids waving
Is this as villainous as the log is going to get, or will there be even greater evils as the hours progress?

[8:41 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: NBC people talking about collectivism in Asia.
[8:41 PM] Kamek: I like the info
[8:41 PM] Kamek: on the side bar
[8:41 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Dude's name is "President Moon Jae-In"
[8:41 PM] Kamek: yeah
[8:42 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Not sure what that's supposed to be a pun of.
[8:42 PM] Kamek: the other chick was ousted out
[8:42 PM] Kamek: it was pretty hostile
[8:42 PM] Kamek: apparently there was a huge amount of corruption
[8:42 PM] Kamek: so they put moon in
[8:42 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Are you supposed to pronounce it "yong"?
[8:42 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I thought it was "yang", saying the letter 'a'.
[8:42 PM] RawkHawk2010: The theme is Circles.
[8:42 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Like, "yay-ng"
[8:42 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: The theme in Rio was climate change.
[8:43 PM] RawkHawk2010: Does KoopaTV have anything to do with circles?
[8:43 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...The Koopa shells?
[8:43 PM] RawkHawk2010: Those are oblonged.
[8:43 PM] Kamek: The circle of our people leaving and coming back
[8:43 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: wtf pepsi

[8:44 PM] Kamek: you're being closed minded
[8:44 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: No, I'm PRETTY SURE it's white and black.
[8:44 PM] RawkHawk2010: My commercial said the same sentence five times in a row and I thought it was someone being creative but nah
[8:44 PM] Kamek: It's an alternative color
[8:44 PM] Kamek: like alternative facts
[8:45 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Stop putting YOUR Westernisms into Asian philosophy.
[8:45 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Oh, Rawk.

[8:46 PM] Kamek: FRENCH!
[8:46 PM] RawkHawk2010: I don't know France's flag.
[8:46 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: If Korea's is circle-themed, wot will they do in Tokyo 2020 with its circle in the flag?

[8:47 PM] RawkHawk2010: yeah
[8:47 PM] Kamek: Auld lang syne was the tune of the korean national anthem?
[8:47 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Was somehow worse than the Star-Spangled Banner.
[8:47 PM] Kamek: that's awful
[8:47 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: So let's hope Korea is better.
[8:47 PM] Kamek: my stream froze
[8:47 PM] Kamek: i'm debating on using a television
[8:48 PM] RawkHawk2010: why is there a black kid singing among the koreans?

[8:49 PM] RawkHawk2010: How'd I guess.
[8:49 PM] Kamek: Greece first because olympics

[8:49 PM] Kamek: ....probably not
[8:49 PM] RawkHawk2010: Well they just said there'd be Korean Pop.
[8:49 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Sierra Leone has sent athletes to every Summer Olympic Games since 1968 with the exception of 1972 and 1976, but the nation has yet to win an Olympic medal. No athletes from Sierra Leone have competed in any Winter Olympic Games."
[8:49 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: crap

[9:40 PM] RawkHawk2010: Russia is more stigmatized here than North Korea?

[9:46 PM] Kamek: USA again
[9:46 PM] Kamek: SHINZO does what he wants
[9:46 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Not if Cappy is controlling him.

[9:48 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: CBC does commercials too?
[9:48 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: So how come BBC doesn't?
[9:48 PM] Vortex: Because the BBC is funded by a licence fee.
[9:48 PM] Vortex: At least for now.
[9:49 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "The financial structure and the nature of the CBC differs from other national broadcasters, such as the British broadcaster BBC, as the CBC employs commercial advertising to supplement its federal funding on its television broadcasts." - Wikipedia

[10:07 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Circle dancers done now.

[10:11 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I skipped those cutscenes around the 20th shrine.
[10:11 PM] RawkHawk2010: This sounds like the song that played in that one Pokemon Black/White town.

[10:25 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Um, what?
[10:25 PM] RawkHawk2010: lol
[10:25 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: The whole point in the Olympics is that the athletes aren't equal.
[10:25 PM] Kamek: Main camera man is frozen tío
[10:26 PM] RawkHawk2010: The whole point of the olympics is to disprove that.
[10:26 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: That's why they get different medals.
[10:26 PM] Kamek: He can't hold the camera straight
[10:26 PM] RawkHawk2010: I guess equal as in "popportunity"

[10:31 PM] Kamek: The display is pretty
[10:31 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Maybe it's the NBC producers doing post-singing over them.
[10:31 PM] RawkHawk2010: This isn't a very good cover but it's better than what they might've done otherwise.
[10:31 PM] RawkHawk2010: Unless it hasn't started yet.
[10:32 PM] Kamek: I have no idea what this song is
[10:32 PM] RawkHawk2010: Really?
[10:32 PM] Kamek: These string instruments are amazing
[10:32 PM] Vortex: Is that supposed to be a dove?
[10:32 PM] Vortex: Like, for peace?
[10:32 PM] RawkHawk2010: yea
[10:32 PM] Kamek: I can't understand the words they're saying unfortunately
[10:32 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: It's the sand phoenix from Sunshine.
[10:33 PM] Kamek: Sand Phoenix song is stuck in my head
[10:33 PM] Kamek: I hate you
[10:33 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I don't even remember it. >.>
[10:33 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: New song.
[10:33 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...oh it's doves nevermind.
[10:33 PM] RawkHawk2010: NBC put a hard g on "genre"
[10:34 PM] RawkHawk2010: "Not doves, but drones"
[10:34 PM] RawkHawk2010: LOL
[10:34 PM] Kamek: Wait are those seriously real RC copters
[10:34 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "We see... not doves... but DRONES...and technology... bridging the gap...with imagery of the winter games." - NBC
[10:34 PM] Kamek: Yo
[10:34 PM] Kamek: I want that light vest
[10:35 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: They're playing a pre-recorded video from December.
[10:35 PM] RawkHawk2010: So no one's gonna fall I take it.
[10:35 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: They look like the Chozo Spirits from Metroid Prime.
[10:35 PM] RawkHawk2010: I kept waiting for JEB! to trip during the debates.
[10:35 PM] Kamek: Oh please no
[10:36 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: COMMERCIAL
[10:36 PM] RawkHawk2010: "The lighting of the cauldron, as we c-"
[10:36 PM] RawkHawk2010: Nice commercial placement.
[10:36 PM] Kamek: I'm going to fall asleep
[10:36 PM] RawkHawk2010: Pretend we're doing a log.
[10:37 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Pretend?
[10:38 PM] Kamek: IOC copyrighted their stufd
[10:38 PM] RawkHawk2010: Why do people want hamburgers that height-wise won't even fit in your mouth?
[10:38 PM] RawkHawk2010: I don't get it.
[10:38 PM] Kamek: More food
[10:38 PM] Kamek: It's  impressive
[10:39 PM] RawkHawk2010: But you can just get two small ones.
[10:39 PM] Kamek: AMERICA
[10:39 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Is this log violating copyright?
[10:39 PM] Kamek: you can also take the groceries in two bags at a time
[10:39 PM] RawkHawk2010: What if it really was?
[10:39 PM] RawkHawk2010: What if the plot of the olympics is copywrit?
[10:39 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: THE SCRIPT.
[10:39 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: #rigged
[10:40 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Please stand for the Olympic anthem.
[10:40 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: THEY get an anthem too?
[10:40 PM] RawkHawk2010: I didn't know that existed.
[10:40 PM] RawkHawk2010: Too many anthems.
[10:40 PM] Kamek: Oh dear
[10:40 PM] RawkHawk2010: Is there a world one?
[10:40 PM] Kamek: Olympics anthem can be said to be a world anthem
[10:40 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Well the world sucks at making anthems.
[10:40 PM] Vortex: Those flag-carriers look like they're wearing bathrobes.
[10:41 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: This is why we shouldn't have a New World Anthem.
[10:41 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: You'll be forcing one crappy anthem on every country.
[10:41 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: *New World Order
[10:41 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: They won't be able to escape.
[10:41 PM] RawkHawk2010: They're like the Society of Light in Yu-Gi-Oh! GX, which I think I'm mentioning in the second log this year.
[10:41 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: And you'll be destroying culture.
[10:41 PM] Kamek: Did someone jack up the Olympic flag
[10:42 PM] Kamek: Nope there it is
[10:42 PM] Kamek: Is there significance to the lights going up
[10:42 PM] Kamek: On the ramp over there
[10:42 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: It looks cool.
[10:42 PM] Kamek: She has no hands

[10:43 PM] Kamek: Jeez that was scary
[10:44 PM] RawkHawk2010: Didn't Hitler come up with the running of the torch?
[10:44 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I associate it with Ash Ketchum.
[10:44 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Since he kept doing it in the anime.
[10:44 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: For the Pokémon League.
[10:44 PM] Kamek: Wow
[10:44 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Is that a sickle?
[10:44 PM] Kamek: They're really pushing it
[10:45 PM] Kamek: How many more people are they going to pass it to
[10:45 PM] Kamek: Oh
[10:45 PM] Kamek: Here we go
[10:45 PM] RawkHawk2010: The current music is good.
[10:45 PM] Kamek: Right Korea is cute
[10:46 PM] Kamek: Well now she's left Korea

PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympics Opening Ceremony torch North South Koreans Park Jong-Ah
Kamek, please, we don't need a Right Korea and Left Korea on top of North Korea and South Korea.

[10:47 PM] Kamek: Dude she's figure skating way too close to the edge
[10:48 PM] Kamek: Omg
[10:48 PM] Kamek: She's doing it now I guess
[10:48 PM] Kamek: Neither Korea knew what to do
[10:48 PM] Kamek: What the heck!
[10:49 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Yuna Kim will be lighting it I guess.
[10:49 PM] Kamek: Whoa
[10:49 PM] Kamek: Très dramatique
[10:49 PM] RawkHawk2010: I wish I could have met my figure-skating uncle before he died of YIDS.

[10:51 PM] RawkHawk2010: Ninjas.
[10:51 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "One last artistic portion of this opening ceremony."
[10:51 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: They're named "Just Jerk"
[10:51 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: So I guess they're the Korean Loiter Squad.
[10:52 PM] Kamek: I thought it was Gesture
[10:52 PM] RawkHawk2010: That thing in the middle looks familiar.
[10:53 PM] Kamek: It likes like the wind walker boss
[10:53 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Firedancers.

[10:53 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Kalle Demos.
[10:53 PM] Kamek: Yes

[10:54 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Korean mythology sounds boring.
[10:54 PM] Kamek: To synchronized fireworks
[10:54 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Music sounds like something from Death Mountain.
[10:54 PM] Kamek: This would  be so much more impressive if I wasn't dying

[10:57 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Not sure if the Opening Ceremonies are over now.
[10:57 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Because NBC dudes didn't say "coming up..."
[10:57 PM] RawkHawk2010: Guess we'll see.
[10:57 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: What if they'll just have hours of commercials now?
[10:57 PM] Vortex: lol, the British commentators are roasting Socci for being more expensive as well as overall forgettable.
[10:58 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: WE'RE BACK

PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympics Opening Ceremony trespasser on stage red hat Cappy evil intruder
IT'S CAPPY!



Don't expect KoopaTV coverage of the actual sporting events during the Olympics. The next time you should hear from KoopaTV about PyeongChang will be the closing ceremony by the end of February! Assuming the world doesn't end before then. (It may end on that day.)


Check out Rio 2016's Opening Ceremony reaction log here.
Technically this is a sequel to Rio 2016's Closing Ceremony, so be sure to check that one out here.

  1. I was really disappointed that we didn't get to watch the video of the Korean children imagining their future, and their response was something along the lines of being short on time, probably an excuse to get people to download the NBC app.

    1. While it was very clear from our live reactions that we all think NBC did an absolutely terrible job (as usual) with showing the Olympics, I for one don't miss not having to see the Ahlbi Ur'Gaid turned five even more.

    2. NBC is owned by Comcast, so of course one'd expect them to be terrible.

      Delete
    3. Reminder that Comcast also owns Universal's theme parks and Illumination Entertainment, so we should thus expect all of Nintendo's IP-licensing endeavours with them to similarly be terrible.

    4. I hope a miracle happens, but I doubt it.

      On Illumination Entertainment, it's said that their mission statement is to have successful animation films on a low budget. Anyway, have fun watching it in theatres, as you may be in it!

      Source: https://www.nytimes.com/2011/04/04/business/media/04illumination.html

      As for Universal's Theme Parks, that mainly depends on the directors.

      I hope that Miyamoto actually enforces his creative potential, like that of the 80s, and not like that of Sticker Star.

    5. I was disappointed that when I saw there were two comments, one of them was a word correction...
      ...But I see wot you did there and appreciate it a lot. Have a Truth and a Levity point. :o

      If Nintendo is contributing some budget, perhaps they can increase production values too.

      It's long been a position of mine, posted from many KoopaTV articles, that we're better off if Miyamoto is making movies rather than games.

      ...yeah I hope I'm not in it. <_<

      You know if the movie is bad people will blame Universal/Illumination/NBC/Comcast rather than Miyamoto or Nintendo.
