If you don’t remember the movie “The Wizard,” it was pretty much an entire movie meant to advertise Nintendo. The film follows three children as they travel to California (Fred Savage being one of them). The youngest of the three is emotionally withdrawn with a gift for playing video games. “The Wizard” is famous for its numerous references to video games (duh) and accessories for the Nintendo Entertainment System and has been called a feature length commercial.
The film was also known for introducing Super Mario Bros. 3, Which could be the greatest video game ever made. It was here that I also first got introduced to the Power Glove. Fuck it looked so cool… until I actually tried it.
