Of all the terrible video game movie adaptations, the 1991 version of "Super Mario Bros." got the most critical reaction.

Its story is chronicled in a new book called "Generation Xbox: How video games invaded Hollywood," so we'll spend some time today dissecting all the negative reviews and discover how it became a cult favorite.

Bridget Carey joins us for the first half with a backstage pass to her new show, CNET Update !

It rounds up all the top tech stories of the day and keeps a close eye on product updates, emerging trends, and new apps, so be sure to follow CNET Update on Twitter and share your feedback at update@cnet.com. Congratulations Bridget!

After the break, we'll run through the top 10 most outdated gadgets you can still buy to this day. The list is incomplete, though -- my suggestion? Those VHS tape rewinders shaped like sports cars.
