Spy, no offense but you're a moron.  And you didn't even buy the f***n movie!  But maybe you're a little kid.  If you are, you should know you've done something really stupid.


Ok for one. I'm sixteen years of age don't insult my intelligence, two I'm going to buy the movie if you read my post I said I didn't want to wait for the aussie release or buy online and three it was under spoilers so my assumption was that people weren't going to read them if they didn't want to be spoiled. SIMPLE AS THAT. I don't need a bunch of twats telling me otherwise.

I bought the dvds too even when I had a burned copy of them just to support the team.

Excellent movie. I just wish the DVD come on the UK really soon

*MAJOR* Spoilers begin here
And end there

So overall: Best episode ever? No, but I'd probably rank it somewhere up there. And this is more than what I expected from Futurama's glorious return. Futurama - Just won't stay dead!

5/5

I just watched it, and I thought it was very good, but by no means the best futurama I have ever seen.

minor to moderate spoilers:

MAJOR SPOILERS AHEAD!!!

All in all it was very good.  The sciency humor just didnt seem to be on par with what we're used to from the series.

I just finished watching it with my flatmate.
The storyline was a bit of a mess (I get annoyed by any time travel related stuff) and the songs weren't very good but there were some good moments and bits that tied into previous episodes.
Not the best futurama ever but I still think it will be worth getting the DVD.
7/10

I saw the package the other day, very cool. Iwent into a local video store and they had just received them. The guy at the desk let me take a look at the box, but of course he wouldn't sell it until next week. He said he was taking it home that night to watch, I would be jealous but he is paid $7 an hour and works Thanksgiving so I think he deserves it.

The cover is a cardboard slipcase with the TV screen being a lenticular image of Bender.

I saw some of the movie. I saw the first 20 mins and some part here and there I couldn't see it all because of my shity dial-up.   frown

It's pretty good from what I saw of it. I will buy it the 27th.

Saw it last night. I'll try to keep plot details vague, but still, don't read if you don't want to risk being spoiled.


On a final note, "Bender's Big Score" is an asbolutely TERRIBLE title for this movie. It makes it sound like it's about Bender becoming a football player or something (which is especially bad given that one of the other movies is also called "Bender's Game" ). Couldn't the writers have thought of something, uhhhh, better?

You're not serious???
I just saw the movie and I now I can't think of anything else, can't wait to hold the DVD in my hands, I wish there were no region codes and I could get the US one... -.-
The movie was brilliant, amazing, I've been waiting for it for so long and it was just as great as I presumed...  big grin

I got the movie on DVD yesterday and I love it! Iíve watched it twice already, I wanted to see it a couple of times before reviewing itÖ



Overall I would say this movie is well worth the wait, itís a fantastic Futurama adventure and well worthy of continuing alongside Futuramsí legacy. Itís not as good as the best Futurama, but itís certainly better than the worst Futurama so thatís more than good enough for me!

I canít wait for the next Futurama movie, roll on ĎThe Beast With A Billion Backsí!...

I have seen it all now, and I can't really add much to what's been said.

I will say this, though; the extended view of that owl's ass is a very subtle clue about the quantity of buttock on display...

loved it, loved it, loved it

great animation and graphic exspecially 3D, about half the movie had some 3D like the first thing you see. Animation was maybe even better then the series

only a couple little problems

Okay, I indulged/treated myself for Thanksgiving, saw it the other day, except for the end. (Thanks Fox). But since I already knew about the 'twist' at the end anyway, I figure I can wait for that part.

First, I agree with all those who said that it felt rushed and choppy in parts. Understandably, it seemed like the writers were trying to cram in a lot of material. This impression was intensified by the large number of characters - some of them seeming randomly thrown in.

Overall I enjoyed it and laughed a good amount of times, but I did have a few problems with it. The plot was fairly well done but I had some issues with some of the style aspects and some of the decisions made by the writers.


All in all, it just somehow didn't quite...feel like Futurama to me; maybe it was the relative lack of science-based jokes, the somewhat rushed nature or the fact that I didn't think it had the emotional effectiveness of some of the best episodes. Despite all this, I did     still enjoy it, but I don't think it was up to the quality standard of the series as a whole.

So've seen most of the movie except for 10 minutes of the begining and the end. I did what km73 watched what I coul on youtube before FOX deleted it. There's a site that I can download from but I'm not gonna do that. I agree that it was a little choppy at the begining but I can forgive them for that.


I'll second what km73 said about it not feeling entirly like Futurama due to a lack sciecy jokes. It still had some fot eh emotional stuff like it would normally. It was good but not as good as it could have been.

This has nothing to do with anything you guys were talking about but the IMDB boards for the movie are hateful. It's a shame.

Just put up my review for Bender's Big Score on CGEF. I'll post the spoiler-free summary here. For the rest (also mostly spoiler free), follow the link.

Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed the movie and welcome the return of Futurama very much. Personally, I could have done with a bit less romance and a bit more Zapp. But that's just me. Others would probably sorely miss those scenes. After watching the movie a few times and getting caught up in the inevitable heated discussion on the nature of the plot resolution towards the end, the movie definitely was worth spending this weekend on. To conclude the review, I'll rate Bender's Big Score a great 8.8 PE ships out of 10 possible.

I have no illusions about majority of IMDB users but actually, arguments used there about BBS are virtually identical to those cited here. "Hate" isnīt much involved.
