    I am Still Laughing

    This is one of the best of the bunch. Take the Futurama guys and let them run with all the nerd jokes they can muster. They are in their element and it is good to see them in their natural habitat.

    Of course, I'm just as big a geek as the people who make the show (I run a computer science lab in a small college) so I am the target audience for the series. Of all the Futurama films, this one is the best.

    This film is the perfect salute to the late Gary Gygax, one of the creators of the Dungeons and Dragons role playing games and one of the fathers of role playing games in general. But even if you don't know your bugbear from your dark matter, there's a good chance you will enjoy this movie. If you even paid a little attention in science class or while watching public television, the science will prove interesting. If that's not enough for you, well, there's always the sex.

    This movie is definitely worth the time to view... repeatedly. It will give +5 to your laughter points and raise your entertainment three whole levels.

    The best one yet!

    I'll admit it, straight out. I'm a huge fan of Futurama. Right up there on my list of dream jobs is working for the crew that puts together these wonderful shows. I'm also a big nerd when it comes to role playing games. So it's probably no surprise that I really dug Bender's Game. A loving homage to Dungeons and Dragons and everything Gygaxian, Bender's Game manages to be much funnier that the previous films. It still suffers from a bit of a disjointed nature, as if the writers still aren't comfortable outside of the half hour format, but the constant barrage of sight gags and laugh out loud lines make up for any pacing problems. There's also a good deal more shameless fan service in this production - group showers, pleasurable punishment devices, and girl on girl makeouts. It's definitely a must for any Futurama fan. Bring on The Wild Green Yonder!
