It's funny, though.  Because when it comes down to it, I can list the films like this.

The one I thought was the best, plot-wise was Bender's Big Score, the one I laughed the most of was The Beast with a Billion Backs and the one I felt was the best combination of these was Into the Wild Green Yonder.

Now you may think I feel Bender's Game to be the worst, but that is not so.  I still believe that The Beast with a Billion Backs is the worst, despite my laughter.  I have a thing about films and how to rate them as bad.  My problem with this film is that the latter part of act 4 I cannot stand to watch.  For me, that part on Yivo is unwatchable.  And if a film has an unwatchable part or scene that is that long, it is certainly not in my quality list of films.

OK, I'm going to be fair here and state that BWABB is not terrible during most of the first half. I don't hate it right then. However, the second half is almost complete ****. It's not funny, it screws characters (literally), it's not insightful (as some seem to think), and it's badly plotted (this one is not personal. It's plain fact). I don't even think the first half is funny past the 1st viewing, but it's at least viewable. The second half is PAIN!

BBS is a weird one. There are so many moments that get it right and make me want to love the movie (even ITWGY doesn't feel like as much of a movie as BBS does), but all these tiny things hold it back. The changing of canon, the confusion of the Time Travel (for me, it only made it more confusing to make it Paradox-Correcting), the lack of jokes (there are a lot of great ones, but the movie doesn't take enough chances to make more), and the somewhat stitched nature of it. It doesn't fell anywhere near as schizophrenic (plot-wise) as BWABB does, but it still doesn't fell whole. I really wish they didn't have to write these as episodes as well since that might have solved the problems the first two had.

Bender's Game is wholly underrated. The first half in particular (aside from Leela's one-dimensional anger (though who doesn't love the shock collar?) is a great episode, totally worthy of the Futurama name. The movie could have expanded on those elements and I would have named it the second best (behind ITWGY). It's that second half that gets in the way. The second half isn't terrible (it's about a C). The problem is that it feels like it's intruding on the much better first half. The first and second half feel like complete, separate episodes. They could have both worked as individual films. They feel cheated and short as they are. It would have been better had the crew simply chosen one of the plots (the first one) and wrote one great movie rather than give us one great episode loosely connected to one okay episode.

Nobody wants to hear another lavish prasing of ITWGY. Suffice it to say that it got EVERYTHING right. About the only complaint is that the first chapter is only loosely connected to chapters 2-4, and even then it's forgivable since it's funny. Some thought (including myself) that the writers were rusty and they weren't used to writing in movie format. ITWGY proved both those points. It's a return to form and it works as a movie. It can't get much better than this one (of course, I hope the new series proves me wrong).

Bender's Big Score had a good story that felt like a movie and not just 4 episodes...I liked it despite the ret-cons

BWABB wasn't that bad IMO...I love the bit about the League of Robots, the Wernstrom sub-plot and overall there were some very funny jokes.

Bender's Game was funny until the Lord of the Rings parody and then it fell a bit flat...especially the ending....bit of a cop-out.

ITWGY also felt like a big epic movie and not just an extended episode and was very funny....it'll be interesting to see how they write their way out of that ending though   

Overall I would go with BBS but as I haven't watched ITWGY again it may just eclipse it if there are some funny jokes I glossed over or missed

I agree!

I loved Bender's Big Score.  I liked everything about it!!  big grin

I also loved ITWGY.  I thought it was the funniest one, overall.  laff  But of course, everything about the movie was very well done.  They did an excellent job on ITWGY!! smile

Benger's Game was good, and I liked the fact that it was about Dungeons and Dragons.  But personally, I'm not a Lord of the Rings fan (never saw those movies before).  So unfortunately, I didn't get a lot of the jokes that were used in that movie.  And I don't care too much for the fantasy part, to be honest.  I loved the beginning though, with the spaceship destruction derby and Leela's choke collar.  I'd say that's my favorite part!  XD  I also like everything that happens before the fantasy.  And, I also like the end of Bender's fantasy where Fry fights against Mom, and then the revealing of Ignar's identity.  And of course, I like the ending part, after everyone comes back to reality.  Overall, I'd say Bender's Game is a pretty good movie. But it's not as good as BBS or ITWGY (in my opinion).

As for Beast With A Billion Backs, it was funny.  But I didn't really care for the plot, to be honest (everyone falling in love with Yivo, and then...finding out what it was really doing with them, eww, that's just gross...and very disturbing).  However, I really enjoyed the beginning of the movie, with Farnsworth and Wernstrom, and that awesome game of Deathball.  XD Hehe, that was fun and amusing!!  laff

So anyway, here's how I would rank the movies.  Listed from most favorite to least favorite.

1. Bender's Big Score
2. Into The Wild Green Yonder
3. Bender's Game
4. The Beast With A Billion Backs

I think the only reason I like BBS more than ITWGY, is because BBS has time-travel.  I admit, I really like the Back To The Future movies, so I'm a huge fan of time-travel.  XD  

But to be honest, I like both BBS and ITWGY a lot.  I really enjoyed those movies, and I could watch both of them over and over again.  smile

Also, I wouldn't say that I dislike or hate any of the movies.  Not even The Beast With A Billion Backs.  For me, that movie is simply my least favorite out of the 4, due to its plot.  Because for me, the problems I have with TBWABB's plot, don't ruin the movie completely.  I mean, it's still enjoyable to some extent, because it's still Futurama.  ^^

Hm, got to go with ITWGY. I DO like Bender's Big Score, it's a close second (Mainly for that "your tail is wagging line" I don't know how hard I laughed. But I love ITWGY, Fry has so many great lines and Leela (throughout the whole movie and especially the end) seems so much closer to Fry, and of course Bender is always good for a laugh. Leo was great in this one, he never had many lines in the serise so he never had much charactor development. But in ITWGY he had some pretty good lines.

TBWABB is my least favourite, I really didn't like the ending but we DID get some good Zapp lines and the gag with the Destructor's leg was pretty good.

BBS Is a very close second for me. Bender was great, Fry had some good lines like when that guy said "Happy New Year naked weirdo"  and he responds "Happy New Year" and zips up his pants. The way he says it was what made it funny. (Thank you Billy West). Overall, I DO love time travel and confusing plots that hurt your head.

BG Close third. I'm such a nerd. I got all the references and spoofs  and laughed at the "You are my father" part. Leela was a little out of charactor but it fit the movie. I also noticed that she seemed more cought up in the fantacy when she was not with Fry and Fry seemed WAY more cought up in the fantacy when he was not with Leela. It fit. I just LOVE nerd-humour and this movie was full of it.

But over all, I still love ITWGY as a nerd, a shipper, and an environmentalist. It was great to all extents. (But a little more nerd-humour couldn't hurt....)

Man, I don't know whether that guy is serious or not, but I found that to be an entertaining read. That guy went really in-depth trying to find any symbolism the writers tried to place in the movie. Still, at the end of the day all the symbolism in the world, no matter how interesting, doesn't make for quality entertainment, as that film so thoroughly demonstrates. If my posts haven't made it clear, I totally agree with this guy's review.

Yes, it is indeed a shame that Hutch died, and now that I think about it, I don't really see why he had to die at all. I mean, he is a Waterfall of course and that does guarantee him a violent death, but there didn't seem to be much of a story reason for it other than a reason for the Encyclopod to immediately avenge his death and attack the Dark One (which he might have done anyway). Maybe that's enough of a reason, though.

Well, it was also "necessary" for Hutch to die to reveal his family line a little earlier and to rid Fry of his mind reading ability (done at the same time with "Hey, my sister's Feminecklace").

He might come back if the writers use his DNA being absorbed by the Encyclopod as an out. He could be a sort-of representative for the Encyclopod. Plus, an episode (or future movie) with a plot based around the possible extinction of humanity sounds like it has great potential.

Yes, removing the femi-necklace does rid Fry of the mind-reading, but that isn't directly connected to Hutch dying besides that Hutch was looking up at Fry from the ground and could see the familiar item under Fry's hair. I suppose since Hutch is a Waterfall and would therefore die anyway he might as well be on the ground from being mortally wounded than from something else...

But I agree that it would be nice to have him come back since his DNA is now safely preserved.

I agree.  The writers was clever on that one.  They left it open for many possibilities.

Quolnok from our wiki have noticed that Waterfalls only appears in episodes that end with 5 in their production number.  The last film is a bit off this rule, but since 5ACV15 is part of the last film, I guess it still slightly counts.

I'm kinda positive that Hutch will come back. The writers were under the assumption that, as a Waterfall, Hutch had to die. They didn't count on Hutch being such a well-loved character. With such an easy-out to bring back a loved character (that almost no one will complain of returning (especially with such a good reason)), there is little chance that they won't bring him back.

Also, I think the reason Hutch became such a great character is that he isn't really a Waterfall. Sure, he's somewhat of a hippie and pro-environmentalism (he joined a group that was for the ultimate species preservation act), but he wasn't annoying about it. I don't know if the only reason Hutch kept quiet is because he had to, but I have a feeling that he wouldn't have forced his beliefs on people like the rest of his family did (annoyingly), even if he was allowed to talk about them.

Since the writers didn't have to write that facet of the Waterfall's into Hutch (since he had to be secretive (about his environmentalism and his family line)), this allowed them more time to flesh out his character.

I agree again. I wonder if Hutch's lack of annoying belief-pushing comes from his ability (maybe he was once as forward as his family but realized through his mind-reading that everyone was terribly annoyed), or, perhaps more likely, from the possibility that he wasn't raised to shove issues into people's faces (he was a "long-lost" Waterfall after all).

Out of those two choices, I'd go with the mind-reading (although I personally go with that that's simply who he is (genetics don't completely define a person. He could have been an aberration to his family)).

I think he was long-lost because he had to go undercover for his work with The Madfellows. He probably didn't want his family hurt by the Dark Ones, so he kept himself out of contact with them (although his sister succumbed anyway and the rest of his family got taken out by other means (wow, if I think of him that way his life is actually kind-of sad)). It's not like he didn't check up on his family. He knew of Frida's Feminista group (and likely the rest of his family's dealings).

That makes sense (and is pretty sad as well). Either way, though, he did seem like a genuinely nice guy and it certainly wouldn't be too implausible to bring him back somehow.
