The Simpsons Movie

   30 July 2007, terribly early in the morning

I wasn’t sure when, if ever, I would watch the Simpsons film in the theatres. The show hasn’t been that great in ages. Saturday night I found myself at a drive-in in Oakville. I knew what movie I had to watch. The film was much better than I had expected. It can’t compete with episodes of yore, but it is certainly a big step up from the sort of stuff they have been producing recently. The story begins when Homer adopts a big, and kind of goes from there. It does feel like a feature length film — albeit a very short one: the movie clocks in at under an hour and a half long. The art is actually a bit better, using tricks from Futurama to give some scenes that quasi 3D feel. I think the film is worth watch if you are a fan of the show.

Don't be shy, you can comment too!

Some things to keep in mind: You can style comments using Textile. In particular, *text* will get turned into text and _text_ will get turned into text. You can post a link using the command "linktext":link, so something like "google":http://www.google.com will get turned in to google. I may erase off-topic comments, or edit poorly formatted comments; I do this very rarely.
