Any true fan of Futurama loves this shirt. Planet Express is the greatest delivery company in the history of the universe that hasn't happened yet nor is likely to happen. If you don't believe me check out this amazing PlanEx commercial
. Of course, Mom rules. "Jam a bastard in it, you crap!"
You know, now that I think about it Futurama is notable not just for the great characters and funny stories, but for some of the most amazing quotes ever. "What fevered dream is this that bids to tear this company in twain?"-Scruffy the Janitor. Here is an awesome list of the greatest Futurama quotes
broken up by season and episode.
You know, now that I am doing all this writing I should be listing all the great quotes I have been coming up with. Let me survey and see if I can find a few gems from my recent blog posts...
Turns out it is harder to find the gems I know are out there than I thought. I should focus on the movies I didn't like, since I tend to get funnier and more bitter for them.
Here's one from Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close
: "However, it does have elements that in a movie without the dog crap centerpiece would have made for an excellent cinema experience". Not really quote-worthy, now that I see it. Most quotes are funnier when taken out of context anyway. Let me find another one.
Ah, here is a good one from my review of Red Tails. In talking about George Lucas and his treatment of the story of the Tuskagee Airmen I made the following analogy: "(George Lucas) is to good movies what thalidomide is to pregnancy". Poetic genius.
Wow is this sucktastic. I just came across a fake trailer for a Futurama live action movie
. At least, I hope it's fake. However, as bad as the production values are this serves as a perfect example of why certain cartoons should not be make into real life movies. Some things just do better two dimensional, if you know what I mean. However, I would not put anything past the soulless and greedy producers of Hollywood and would not be surprised to see a live action Simpsons
or Beavis and Butthead
. While funny in concept just thinking about such at thing makes my brain hurt.
