  • it came out here today, its decent enough, not as good as benders big score though

  • What?

    I didn't know it came out!

    Dang, can someone fetch me a plate of IRONY?

  • That's not irony!

    Anyway, it's still not as good as Bender's Big Game by a LONG shot. But it's better than Beast With A Billion Backs, which at one point had me wondering when it would end.

    Ah well. I rented it, like all the others since Bender's Big Score.

    surely you meant benders big score

    ...

    No, no, I meant what I said. Bender's Big Game is awesome. It's a special movie that only smart people can see in the Big Score DVD menu. Geez. It's FAR better than the movie that the stupids get.

  • I need to watch it again, but Bender's Game didn't seem to have as many laughs as Beast With A Billion Backs. Beast was easily better than Bender's Big Score, because while the story wasn't as solid, the jokes were much smarter and more memorable. I laughed out loud throughout Beast, while Big Score elicited a few laughs, but mostly light chuckles. Bender's Game ranks, I'd say, as better than Big Score but not as funny as Beast.

  • To be honest, I thought Bender's Game is easily the best of the three movies so far. There's a LOT to laugh at if you're a geek (and no, I don't play D'n'D, but still get those references) and the plot was reasonably coherent and consistent.

    The other movies were also good, but Bender's Big Score is quite confusing plotwise, and Beast with a Billion Backs just seemed a little light on the laugh-out-loud moments.

    But I guess everyone has different opinions, so we can all agree to differ :)

    Really, the important thing is that everyone loves the show. How very human of us to love the same thing, yet argue over what about it should be loved the most. :)

    And the fact that different fans love different movies/episodes just demonstrates the great range the show has.

  • I finally saw it! I'd place it behind Bender's Big Score, but well in front of Beast with a Billion Backs. The storyline felt more cohesive than #2, but didn't feel like as much of continuous film as #1. Plus, I really think Futurama is at it's best when it's not afraid to go for a sad moment.

  • I want that movie for Hannukah. It's just so far away...
