You read that correctly. In case there's a legal issue I won't post the direct YouTube link, but if you go to www.simpsonschannel.com you should see it. The clips are of scenes we've seen stuff from before -- Homer & Bart on the roof, Homer talking to the family about the mob coming after him, and Bart skateboarding naked -- but this is the most finished, uncut footage we've ever seen from the movie.
So far, I don't see anything here that causes me to think they've escaped the new style of Simpsons writing. But by virtue of the fact that it's a movie, I still have to assume it'll be more worthwhile.
(On another personal note, I'm wondering if we need a consolidated thread about this movie. But in keeping with the trend we've set, and due to the fact that this really is significant, I'll give it its own thread.)
THE CASTLE OF SIR LEMMING
THIS MONTH'S UPDATE: Christmas Countdown! 25 Christmas songs of interest.
Cool, no spoilers really....
One Very Important Thought.
Eh, both clips were from stuff we've seen in trailers so far, to an extent, anyway. It was nice to see a little more from said scenes, though, like Marge teaching Lisa to keep all her anger bottled up inside forever, and Homer saying "They don't even know where we live!" and the mob turning around towards him.
Anyway, funny or not, this movie is going to be gorgeous.
"You have the right to remain silent. But then again, you have the right to spill your guts and really blow it for yourself!"- Goofy, after arresting Pete and Peg
Did anybody notice those plots on the right hand side?
"He Loves To Fly And He D'ohs
Homer flies in Mr. Burns's private plane and subsequently refuses to go back to normal flying."
What? Since when does Homer fly in the first place?
Homer gets a tow truck in New Jersey and ends up running afoul of the local mob."
What's Homer doing in New Jersey?
Jesus Christ, the plots get more and more convoluted every season.
"The category is Hydromagnetic Magnetoidal Dimensions. When travelling at a subsonic speed during the last one hour of hypersleep, which vector of the Romulan Nebula will suffer the wrath of the impenetrable quickening? And for extra points, how many wraths to the nearest moulton? Be specific, this is a real question." - Ned Hastings
"It is I, Cloneborg! I have come to destroy you!" - Cloneborg
Ah, nice long clips with excellent animation for me to gush over. Very nicely done on the scene where Homer shakes Bart off the TV antenna, sending him rolling down the roof.
And Matt and Al say that they've been working on the movie since 2003. I guess that would explain why the show's overall quality consistency (which wasn't perfect as it was) took a sudden nosedive in Season 14/15 - they were way too busy with this.
"I'LL teach YOU to laugh at things that are FUNNY!!"
Too bad he can't teach me to laugh at things that aren't funny, or that would have been a great line.
I dunno, the clips are hardly brilliant... but I think they're pretty decent. The pacing is a lot better here than it was in the commercial. But the roof clip is so... cartoony. Homer is trying to hammer his kids' hands off so he'll fall of the roof...
I mean Homer is stupid but...
That's not funny, that's terrible.
The mob clip is still really good, though.
"You still race in the games, do you... guardian?.. For what!? Putting a show on for the masses are we? The young pretender!? To mend and defend... who will defend you the next time we meet!? Have your fun boy... while you can." - Megabyte
"They took everything, Bruce. My dad, my life... you. I'm not saying it's right or even sane... but it's all I have left. So either help me or get out of the way!"
It'd be more horrible if Bart didn't enjoy it either, but instead, he's laughing uproariously throughout the whole thing. If anything, it's sort of a twisted "like father, like son" moment that connects you to the characters while still having humor about it.
