Reviews

The third feature-length film in the Futurama series. Bender (voice of John Di Maggio) ends up locked in a padded cell at the Hal Institute for Criminally Insane Robots when a game of Dungeons and Dragons goes horribly awry; Mom Corps is up to its old shenanigans and driving up the price of dark matter; and Mom (voice of Tress MacNeille)'s ex-husband, Professor Farnsworth (voice of Billy West), has created, by accident, a crystal made of 'pure anti-backwards' energy. These three plot strands come together in a grand pastiche of Tolkein and Dungeons and Dragons which finds the characters living in an alternate universe known as Cornwood.

Not perfect all the way through, Bender's game is still a must have for fans.
Fun storyline, good use of the characters and themes and fantastic animation all around.

Besides some small sequences that drag on a bit, I can't really find reasons not to recommend this to fans or anyone curious about the franchise.

Good stuff!

I thought that the whole movie would take place in a fantasy world, but sadly, only about ~30-45 minutes of the movie takes place there. I don't mean the futuristic fantasy world they live in, but the one depicted on the cover. All in all, this is a great release. It's got a lot of that original Futurama humor from the earlier seasons, and it's great since it's three-four episodes in one movie. It's worth the ~£7!

By Tony Coote on 24 Oct. 2010
An excellent feature length episode of Matt Groening's Futurama. I bought this on Blu-Ray and the colours are so vibrant and it just looks amazing. My 2 year old nephew loves the way it looks and gets transfixed to the TV every time I put it on. The story is based on the classic game 'Dungeons and Dragons'. The great thing about Futurama is that it has the ability to draw in adults to watch the cartoon with its innuendos and constant jokes. A really funny film for the whole family.

Bender's Game is the third of the quadrilogy, being made to sort of finish off the Futurama franchise, as Fox do not seem to be willing to make more of them, so Matt had to make 4 movies to really finish it off for everyone, a bit like the way Stargate is ending.

Bender's become obsessed with DND, Dungeons and Dragons and finds he has no imagination. He wants to discover why he's never really had one, and with the help of the little ones, but soon finds himself immersed in their world.

Meanwhile Planet Express is in crisis as the price of dark matter goes up, so the team, including Dr Zoidberg and the Professor have to find out why Mom has decided to knock up the prices.

This isn't the best of the 4 films, I found it less amusing than the series - and I thought Bender didn't have a much of a leading role, as this was meant to be his film. I liked the way they explored Leela's anger, and I was surprised this hasn't happened before. The animation is still spot on, it's just the story that needs to be a bit more refined, as it wasn't as funny as other Futurama films, or TV episodes, and I felt Matt didn't have a dig at others as much as he used to.

The Blu-Ray disk is a dream, all the extras on the DVD are here, sadly, some are still in SD, but it's nice to have the audio and video commentaries - making this a bit special for Futurama fans. There's even a featurette on Dungeons and Dragons if you like the game. I especially liked the featurette on genetics and how they morphed the characters into others. I also liked the "How To Draw "Futurama" In 83 Easy Steps Featurette", that was pretty cool as a fan.

The audio is 5.1 DTS-HD, which is good quality, and the mix is clear and fluid.

The main cast of Futurama: The Professor (Billy West), Hermes (Phil LaMarr), Leela (Katey Sagal), Bender (John DiMaggio), Amy (Lauren Tom), Zoigberg (Billy West), Nibbler (Frank Welker), Fry (Billy West) as well as Mom (Tress MacNeille) and her three bumbling sons return in this 80-minute special. Futurama: Bender's Game is unlike Futurama: Bender's Big Score and Futurama: The Beast With A Billion Backs due to this instalment not having a movie feel at all to it. Futurama: Bender's Game is designed to be aired in four-parts when it premières on television and it feels like a four-part episodic.

In the beginning of the film you are first introduced to a Futurama version on "Yellow Submarine". I believe this is just symbolic of how crazy the upcoming scenes get. Whilst driving about in the Planet Express Ship, Leela, Fry and Bender run out of fuel and luckily Nibbler had one ball of dark matter, which was enough to get the ship to a petrol station. The same guy Sal (John DiMaggio) that always seems to be at one of these stations makes fun of the crew's ship. Sal states even though his ship is beat up, he won the Space Destruction Derby five times. Due to Leela's unrelenting anger issues, she decides to enter the derby and later returns the ship severely damaged.

Later, Dwight Conrad (Hermes Son voiced by Phil LaMarr) and Cubert Farnsworth (the Professor's son voiced by Kath Soucie) are playing a game of "Dungeons and Dragons". Bender thinking that it is a form of gambling, wants to join in, only to find out that it is nothing like that. Dwight and Conrad tell Bender that it is the kind of game that you have to use your imagination and anything will be possible.
