Before I start, just let me say that I FINALLY GOT THE INTERNET! Yesterday evening in fact. Now I can post even more than before! So expect a lot more activity on this blog (if I can manage to wrestle control of my PC from the rest of my family).
Springfield's royal family has finally hit the big screen, and there has been a lot of publicity surrounding it, strangest of all a picture of Homer drawn in a field holding a doughnut next to a nude Australian fertility symbol. Maybe Homer wanted to play ring toss with it. Despite all this, I don't think that this movie will be the blockbuster its hyped to be. Why? Sit back and I'll tell you why.
The Simpsons is the both the longest running American sitcom and animated series, with over 400 episodes. With so many episodes behind its belt, it will be a miracle if the creators can come up with more material. Plus the series feels a bit tired to me. It doesn't make me laugh nearly as much as when I was little. Perhaps its because I've watched so much TV that I can now see the punchline a mile away, or because I've grown up, and therefore become more serious, but the jokes aren't as smart as they used to be. It has become too predictable, the plots too nonsensical, and just plain stupid.
And I'm not feeling the fanbuzz on the Net. For most big movies, especially big screen versions of beloved old school shows, there is a monstrous wave of fan-powered hype. Blogs, chat rooms, websites, forums, etc. But I feel there'd be way more hype if it was a Family Guy movie. Still, with its large fanbase, this movie cannot possibly be a flop. Not like I want it to be, as I'm a diehard fan. But if it was released 15 years ago, when it was first envisioned, (yes, it's been in the pipeline that long!) it would've gotten a much better reception. Though I hear rumours that the movie has returned the franchise to its roots. I surely hope so, if I'm gonna spend money to see this movie, it had better be the Simpsons I fell in love with as a child, not the shadow of its former self.
ahh.. in all honestly i think family guy demolished my simpson sense of humor. i dunno go on youtube type best of family guy and best of simpsons. sit back adn watch and you'll see what i mean.. I didn't laugh at the simpsons much but the family guy clips had me in stiches.
