The Simpsons Movie

If any of you watched the Simpsons yesterday they said they had a big announcement. The Simpsons movie will be out in theaters in July 2007. What are your thoughts on this movie?

Oh God, no!


The Simpsons should have ended several seasons ago. I remember seeing an interview with some Simpsons guy a while back and he said that they would probably never make a movie. Its just Fox squeezing the franchise for all its worth.

Please, let The Simpsons die. So we can all remember when it was the best show on TV instead of a load of tired old crap.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

My first thought after seeing the commercial announcing it was "Why?". And then, maybe they're doing a movie because ratings for the show are dropping and they're trying to boost it. Or maybe this movie will signify the end of the series and be symbolic of their grand finale. Whatever the case may be, I'll probably go see it just to see it. I have to wonder though what could they possibly do with a two hour or hour and a half movie that they haven't already done at some point in one or more of the regular episodes. If Groening wanted to make a movie out of one of his shows, he should have went with Futurama.
There is a method to my madness. That method is in and of itself quite mad, but it is method nonetheless.

I actualy think they might end the series with the movie. It will have been 18 seasons by the time the movie is released...I love The Simpsons and all...but I think it's about time.

And then they could bring back Futurama! ...probably not.

Wow, this makes me realize how long it's been since I was an active user here.

They are voice recording as we speak for a new season of Futurama, I believe.

I seem to remember hearing about a interview from Matt Groening, saying that the Simpsons movie would mark the end of the series. So shut up you heathens!

(The last part is a joke... or is it?)

Yes, I saw it on Friday when I went to see Ice Age, but it was really short.

I already new about this before they said it on Sunday. Some guy slipped it in a radio interview

But no, even though I liked the Simpsons, I'm not going to see a movie with the new writers. They just suck
