Futurama: Bender's Big Score (2007)
Like going home for Christmas
I must admit i had huge fears about the reincarnating Futurama...in
retrospective, i don't know why. It hasn't been that long after all,
and the team has stayed pretty much the same. From the very first scene
i felt right at home. No neat hyper modern animation tricks, no bullet
time camera spins, just the familiar Futurama, which is all i wanted.
Bender's big score is a surprisingly plot-driven movie, reminiscent of
the few more serious episodes. Have no fear, though, the gross humour
is still present. Even with the horrid singing numbers (i was looking
for anti-depressants) and the obsessive re-introduction of nearly every
character that ever appeared on the original series, this is a
rewarding event for sure, especially for us die hard fans who waited so
long. It could have been better as a movie, but i don't want to get too
critical, i'm just glad futurama is back! It just won't die!
