I'm hoping it's good.

Of course Nintendo's been bad with it in the past. They shot down a live-action Metroid, a CGI Zelda, and sadly, a Super Paper Mario adaptation.

I'd like to see a Super Mario Bros Movie done right, but that's the problem.  What is "done right"?  My interpretation of what Mario is, may not align with somebody else's.  Unlike Sly Cooper or Ratchet and Clank (What no Jak and Daxter?  *boop*)  which have relatively good storylines that tie things together, Mario Does not.  Mario has never been heavily story driven.  Giving an official story could ruin Mario for years to come.  Look what the timeline has done for Legend of Zelda.  Nobody likes this timeline.  It shouldn't have ever existed.

Honestly, I kinda enjoyed the infamous live-action "Super Mario Bros." movie.

I mean, yeah, it's cheesy and nothing like the sourse material. But in all fairness, it's much like SatAM in that regard. It tried giving the Mario series an interesting premise as well as giving the characters more character. And in that objective, it did pretty well. Plus, the cast did a good job at playing their roles (especially the late Bob Hoskins), and the special effects and animatronics were pretty good for their time.

Had the film bore a closer resemblance to the games, it probably would have a better reception amongst the fanbase.

SatAM is way closer to its source material than the Super Mario Bros. movie was to its own. SatAM kept all the key elements of the source material while adding and changing details. The Super Mario Bros. movie was mostly a cyberpunk wannabe with Mario elements bolted on. Mario and cyberpunk have never gone together, either then or now. We already know what a Mario adaptation done right -- both a live action adaptation and an animated one -- would look like because we had the Super Mario Bros. Super Show. Sure, the scripts were lousy and the animation was occasionally poor, but they did everything else right.

The only thing the SatAM show got down was Sonic's appearance and character. Everything else, though, was either origonal, or entirely different from its original concept. Tails, for example, has a completely different design and characterization compared to the games (besides the pilot, did he even fly during the show?); the rings acted more like power-ups rather than life-support, and Robotnik's depiction could easily count as an entirely different character.

Sure, but the setting was appropriate. The Great Forest, Mobotropolis, and Robotropolis all would have seemed like fine settings in the games. The premise that Robotnik wanted to mechanize and roboticize everything had precedent in the games. Sure, power rings worked a bit differently, but the idea that Sonic was more powerful with them than without them was at least a familiar concept, and there weren't really any ways to have rings in the story without changing their function at least a little. (Would you want to watch a ton of episodes where Sonic has to gather 50 rings?)

In the Mario movie, on the other hand, the Mushroom Kingdom didn't even exist. Toad became human for no reason (and then he became a goomba). I imagine they were worried that a mushroom costume would look stupid, but in that case they could have left Toad out altogether. Koopa's devolution plot had no precedence in the games or other Mario media. Koopa and Bowser became two different people for no reason. And on and on. Most of the elements that were used were changed so much, or taken so far out of context, as to be nearly unrecognizable. That might have been OK if what they came up with were any good (like the way SatAM changed the function of rings), but about the only thing they got right in that area was the Bob-omb.

This is all setting aside the point that SatAM had less to go on than the Mario Bros. movie did. By the time Super Mario Bros. filmed, there were no less than three reasonably faithful cartoon series, so people had an idea of what a Mario adaptation should look like.

The thing with the Mario movie was utter development hell. It was supposed to at least resemble the games more, but the rewrites and the meddling fucked it up.
