Futurama: The Beast with a Billion Backs

More chuckles than belly laughs, more episodic than Big Score, but still worth watching —Andrea Birgers (DVD review...)

Futurama is Back a Billion

Another dark comedy, but this one loosely (very loosely) based on Macbeth and taking place in the ‘70’s. It takes a while to warm up, but I actually ended up enjoying it. Of course, it stars Christopher Walken, and I would pay money to watch him play with a microwave — so I’m admittedly very biased. This reminds me that I ran into the D.P. of The Tao of Steve just a few days before watching this film, and he’d recently also shot The Opportunists, which featured Christopher Walken. During that film I guess the continuity editor tried to tell Christopher that his pose was not matching the previous pose, and Christopher lost it and went off on some diatribe about how “Repetition is the death of cinema! If I never repeat the same shot again it is too soon!” And so on... Sigh. My hero.
