I just finished watching it, so I'll add another notch to the "It was great" vote.  I enjoyed the first viewing, but I'm going to need another at least to let it all soak in.  It's so good to see new Futurama!!

I won't mention everything, as doing so will simply be reiterating many things already said but I've never been a huge fan of movie versions of cartoons. They never seem to pay off, though I had high hopes for Futurama.

Plenty of funny moments, but plenty of groans too. I just don't think it sold itself well as a movie.

Actually I will mention that the whole Hermes/La Barbara thing shat me to tears, not to mention it seemed to me to be trying too hard to set itself apart from the series, by shitting on many episodes.

Bender however, was in beautiful form.

They are breaking up each movie into 4 episodes, with added footage to fill some gaps.

Hi. I’d like to start off by apologizing for the blatantly ‘wet blanket’ nature of my post. But then, isn’t that’s a big part of why we’re here? To dissect something we love into its most bland, minute elements? To throw a glass of cold water in the face of something whose only motive is to entertain?

Anyway, of all that BBS has left me to mull over, there’s just one thought I can’t seem to get past.

When Fry resumed his life in New York City in the year 2000, did he make any effort to prevent 9/11?

Yes, yes, groan and grimace at the ridiculous expectation that an animated sitcom could even begin to seriously address the gritty details of September 11th, but as unrealistic as the thought may be, it’s is still something we’ll all have in the back of our minds whenever we hear a story about time travel. Especially one that drops its main character into Manhattan at T minus 21 months.

So, what’s the consensus? Did proto-Lars save the day? Did he not? Was there just no 9/11 in the Futurama universe? Regardless, this doesn’t actually affect the movie for me. It’s just food for thought.

I loved the movie, and how Futurama is never afraid to add a totally new page to its increasingly convoluted mythology.

Hey, maybe The Bender-nator stopped the terrorists!

(Or does ‘Termin-bender’ sound better?)

Maybe he didn't even know about it. History tends to forget very strange things as time progresses, and from a thousand years in the future it might simply never have come up.

IMHO the reality is that Fry left before it all went down so he didn't know it happened until it did.  He didn't find out for the very reason that was previously stated.  As horrific as this event was in our lives it didn't amount to a lot in the future.  Besides, old New york was destroyed by aliens chasing Bender.  It was in the movie.

What, exactly, could Fry, a nobody pizza delivery boy in NYC, have done to prevent 9/11, assuming that any record of it had survived into the year 3,000?

Well, my thinking was that he could get the job done with as little as an anonymous phone call placed the day before. But regardless, I wouldn't sell Fry short. Despite being a nobody pizza delivery boy, he does manage to save the world, if not the entire universe, on occasion. He's probably one of the busiest loosers in all of television.

Though the arguments that Fry may not have known about 9/11 make sense. If he didn't experience it first hand, i guess it's within reason that he wouldn't know about a given historical event from a thousand years ago. Especially after most video tapes from the era were mysteriously erased during the second coming of Jesus. Though i wonder if that would affect YouTube and the like?

Many who tried to warn about 9/11 beforehand were ignored and many of them were much more important than a pizza delivery boy. Especially one who would keep babbling about time travel, evil alien nudists, hot cyclops chicks...

Also knowing too much would probably have gotten him a one way trip to GITMO as a co-conspirator.

I wonder of Lars would have been "doomed" if he would have stayed in the 21st Century.

Does Fry seem like the type of person who would have done a lot of researcxh into the missing thousand years?

Plus, judging by Pastorama ("The Lesser of Two Evils"), the historical knowledge he would have had access to would probably not have been all that accurate.

Whoa tricky, just cold chill. Take a deep breath, let it out slowly, and do you feel calmer now? Good. I agree with you that yosiandmario3 needs to stop posting to rank up but you don't need to go off the deep end. You also spelt "cram" wrong. (Sorry don't mean to be a spelling Nazi.)

I want to know how the movies will be split into stand alone episodes. Esecially with BBs everything is intertwined so it'll be kinda hard to pick apart and make into individual episodes. With Family guy it was written to be easily divided into different episodes but the Futurama movies don't seem to be written that way.

Watching the second time around, there are very good "ending" spots every 22 minutes or very close. 


I don't think there is any way to make them 'stand-alone' episodes, this is ultimately a four-parter.  Perhaps they will tack on a "Previously, on Futurama" to the beginning?  Probably unnecessary though.

Yeah but there was something online that said that all the episodes would be stand alone so having 4 part episodes not so good and I don't fancy having the episodes just be the movies divided then people wont buy the movie if they can DVR it instead for free.

Of course the thread went to hell, Frisco. This is PEEL we get off track so easily.

Yeah. With that kind of historical revisionism, people in the year 3000 probably thought 9/11 was perpetrated by Napoleonic troops shooting crossbows while flying WWI-era planes.

Yes, that's correct, and what was described in a recent interview.

If you're curious, the explicit four-part structure is visible in the DVD extras, first draft script.  There you can see the movie is divided into four acts (unusual for a movie), and the ending points are exactly at the 22 minute segments Ryan mentions.

I just received Benders Big Score, and I enjoyed it.  In the finest tradition of Futurama, they found a way to stick it to the FOX network, and that alone was worth the price of the DVD.  One of the biggest character inconsistencies people argued about a month ago was finally solved, and, although I thought it was Great but not Awesome, it's still heads & tails better than any of the crap on TV right now.

Fry's love for Leela knows no limits.. It made me all choked up and teary towards the end. Very emotional!

One scene that cracked me up pretty bad was Bender zapping up NNY in his spaceships. Hilarious!

The little part that I like more than I think I should is:

"I kicked Fry out two hours ago.  This is my new boyfriend, umm, what was your name again?"
"Constantine."
"Really?  ::Snort::  That's stupid."
