Tripping the Rift: The Movie Reviews
1] This is merely the 3rd season's first couple of episodes strung together as a movie with a Terminator connection. I was hoping for more in a movie. That alone usually gets me to rate it 0% due to lack of effort, which brings me to..
2] Oh, how I missed that amorphous purple blob and his wacky crew! I love the series itself. Snappy one-liners, enough cultural pop references to choke a Bantha, and gratuitous nudity*.
*Except for Six, sadly enough.
All in all, a decent way to spend a rainy afternoon.
I had never really seen too much of the show, but i decided to watch Tripping the Rift: The Movie anyway. It turned out to be ridiculously stupid, funny and entertaining. It's all about the main character, the shallow captain Chode McBlob who goes on all kinds of crazy, quirky missions to different planets with his rag-tag crew to help, aid and assist other crazy aliens and things. The story obviously takes place in the far future and is similar to 'Futurama' in many aspects. Chode is just a foul mouthed, sex crazed idiot who is planning a huge birthday blow-out bash when it is not even his birthday! The movie spoofs and parodies many sci-fi classics like Star Wars and Star Trek and Terminator etc. It's fun to watch just to see all of the references and hidden stuff. The cgi actually wasn't too bad. It isn't as prestine as say Finding Nemo or Monsters Inc. but it manages.
Overall: Tripping the Rift was a fun late night watch, but it's short running time and crammed together scenarios make it a bit annoying at times, but the continuous comedy, fart and dick jokes and big, cgi tits tend to pick up the slack of the out of control, retarded storyline. Plus it's based off of the TV show. It's always hard to cram in everything necessary to make a good movie out of a TV show, just look at the 'Simpsons Movie' :(
