Noooooo!!!

Can't.... read....

Everytime I find a spoiler for one of the movies before I see it I say NO!  I won't look...but eventually I break down and look but not this time..... I hope.

Whilst the first review gave me a lot of hope that one has dampened my expectations slightly.

Still, I've never been one to let other people's opinions sway my own on such matters so I'm happy to wait until I actually see the movie before getting too elated/annoyed.

No matter what people say about the movie I am going to like it, even if it isn't that much. If the movie stinks I'm not going to hate it. I'll just say it was my least favorite but it was still entertaining.

Hearing you guys talk about that review is like how my uncle always says that movies get crappy reviews, and that we shouldn't see it, but we go anyway and I love it. Critics stink sometimes. But that doesn't stop me from seeing a movie.

*edit*
Also, I just read some other reviews from that site and they can be pretty harsh...jeez...
Also, I read the first paragraph of the review, and then I quickly and happily closed the window.

For my part I am not willing to base my opinion on a review by a website called theshiznit ;-)

Absolutely, it's just one person's opinion.

Some people (and critics) hated BBS whilst I loved it, there's never any need to be worried by what is said in a review unless it is getting universally panned - which isn't the case.

On a related matter I'm surprised it's taken so long for another review to turn up, surely they'll start coming in thick and fast now?

Yeah, sounds like it won't be the vast improvement I was hoping for after Bender's Game. However, since I really didn't like Bender's Game, any kind of improvement will be welcomed by me. And hey, it could be wrong, there were many times when reviews overhyped movies for me and left me disappointed and vice versa, so I'm still gonna remain optimistic. This movie still sounds pretty good, but after Bender's Game, I really want Futurama to end its movie run with a bang.

EDIT: This opinion could all change if I knew this dude's rating system. If it were 3.5/4 stars, disregard what I said. But based on what he said, I think it's out of 5 stars, and if it is, yeah, that thing I said follows.

You can't really take one critics opinion as gospel, the Screenjabber review made it out to be an excellent movie and the best out of the four whilst the other two have painted it as a just above average effort.

I remember reading some awful reviews for Bender's Big Score yet I loved it personally, just look at the variety of opinions everyone has on the three movies so far. A fair number of people seem to love BWABB yet I thought it average at the very best.

Just try and go into the movie with no expectations and decide for yourself, admittedly my expectations will be raised somewhat with it being possibly the last Futurama we see and I have faith in the writers that they won't disappoint but all the same, I won't let reviews worry me too much.

It also depends on who is reviewing.

If it is someone who isn't a diehard fan of Futurama, they won't have the biased part of it and they will pass it off as a cartoon sci-fi that is average, and will just judge it really on story plot. They won't really look too much at stuff such as the characters, and they probably wouldn't get any refrences to earlier episodes.

If they do love Futurama, usually they think that it is good, no matter what. They may think it isn't the best, but it won't be something really to stop them from watching it. As Gorge said, you should just watch it as just something regular, just watch it for the fun of it. Don't even think that it could be the last one because that will be in the back of your head as you watch it and you will be mad at the end if it wasn't that great, even if you liked watching it.

Reviews really don't scare me that much because I don't care about what people think. My uncle reviews the movies sometimes and says we shouldn't see it because it got a bad review on some website, but I would see the movie anyway and love it all the same.

Futurama shows also work on a lot of levels, what Billy West refers to as layers of an onion. It often takes several watchings of a show for it all to sink in or begin to notice other things.

Good points, guys. Whenever I have a franchise that I truly love and a new installment is coming (another example, Terminator and the upcoming Salvation movie), I tend to get caught up in the reviews but forget not everyone's not looking at the movie from the same perspective, and this behavior is multiplied when the last installment wasn't that good (another example: Terminator 3, and I'm hoping for the best for the upcoming movie).

Like I said though, I still have great hope and optimism for Futurama's final movie.

An user on the LJ Futurama Community said he got a screener copy for ITWGY. I emailed the guy and asked for spoilers.

This is his reply: BEWARE OF SPOILERS!!!

I read some of the smaller spoilers, and the spoiler inside the spoiler. Once I got another spoiler warning, I had a gist of what it was gonna be and didn't click it.

But anyway, believe or not reading the ending has not spoilt things for me, in fact it's made me look forward to the film all the more. That said if you are a bit fussy about endings being spoiled DON'T read it. I'm a rare breed in that spoilers have never ruined anything for me so unless you're the same resist the temptation.

Pretty good spoiler, raises my hopes a bit. If they did it right it might make for a good ending after all.
