|08.01.07||Alamo South Lamar|| So many people are going to the movies this summer. I guess it's great for the good films like Knocked Up and Ratatouille but it frustrates me that so many people are loving crap like Pirates 3 and Transformers. Subsequently, seeing this movie at an Alamo was impossible opening weekend. Even on a wednesday night the show sold out... lots of Simpsons fans out there I guess (who'da thought!?).|
Anyway, I liked this movie. For some reason or another I can't bring myself to sing its praises to the heavens - maybe it's because it was more a relief that it's good than a surprise - but it could've been much much worse and for the most part it feels like a natural movie extension of The Simpsons. I think Spider-Pig will become the next in that long line of Simpsons jokes that seep into the public conscioussness, although I think the gag that got the biggest laugh out of me was seeing the elephant kick an animal out of frustration.
I was also waiting for Bono to make an appearance.
so... yeah. a success. For whatever reason I can't add any exclamation points although maybe in a year or two after it's out on DVD and it's just another addition to the stockpile, I'll watch it again and laugh and think back to the time when I first saw it and immediately loved it. ahhh, good times.
