Futurama: Bender's Game Reviews
The third Futurama movie/four combined episodes to be released. Certainly a quality hour and a half of Futurama goodness. It puts less focus on the more obscure characters and in-jokes for dedicated fans and is more joyfull for anyone to watch. Familiar faces are still around, but its good enough for the casual fan as well.
Since this is four episodes, there are essentially two plots. One involves a rise in gas prices (how poignant) due to a monopoly owned by the evil Mom character. The other plot involves the cast eventually getting caught in a fantasy world formed by Bender. Irregardless of the plot, the movie is very funny.
Bender: Shut up! Zoidberg! But he does have a point.
This time, great use is put to some more random jokes. Not Family Guy styled manatee jokes, but more ludicrous Futurama type stuff that is just very funny due to the voice actors and sight gags.
The structure of this film is also more satisfying than the previous Beast with a Billion Backs, which kind of suffered from genre switches and pacing. Here everything comes together pretty well.
And be warned, pushing Futurama into further geekdom, Dungeons and Dragons and Lord of the Rings find their way heavily referenced here.
A lot of good fun for Futurama fans.
Scary Door Narrator: But it wasn't guns or machines that destroyed the alien's, but the humblest of earth's creatures, the Tyrannosaurs Rex.
