I just watched Futurama: Bender’s Game on DVD. A delightful mixture of many great movies, series and even a board game!
The idea was to spoof Dungeons and Dragons. That the execution of this idea happened to coincide with its creator, Ernest Gary Gygax, is just a… well… coincidence! 😉
The movie producers have managed to come up with a perfect balance of a the traditional elements of Futurama, a healthy splash of D&D, a dash of Star Trek, a smidge of Star Wars, a pinch of Teletubbies(!), and a [enter your cooking/baking measuring unit here] of 2001: A Space Odyssey. And some other movies and series which I won’t bother to mention here and now…
This combination makes a very entertaining movie, IMHO the best Futurama movie so far! Looking forward to see whether Futurama: Into the Wild Green Yonder will be able to surpass this one…847 views
