Futurama Bender’s Game

    [sandboxworld]_ad-j2Dd_Vg[/sandboxworld]

    Futurama is becoming a self parody in a good sense. The new movies are
    mostly an homage to characters from past episodes with new plots and
    twists. Borrowing heavily from Dungeons and Dragons and Lord of the
    Rings. Matt Groening brings us the best so far in the animated movies
    of the Futurama franchise. The series always depended on pop culture
    references. The lampoons are the driving engine of the show. Bender’s
    Game seems to garnish more original material. Futurama in a sense has
    become pop culture too but will always be a shadow of the Simpsons.
    Futurama has a unique mystic that will transcend many years to come. As
    in any science fiction story it always has a veiled modern day message
    in the story. The one theme in the new feature is the energy crisis of
    modern times.

    With fuel prices skyrocketing, the Planet Express crew sets off on a
    dangerous mission: to infiltrate the world’s only dark-matter mine,
    source of all spaceship fuel. But deep beneath the surface lies a far
    stranger place… a medieval land of dragons and sorcery and
    intoxicated knights who look suspiciously like Bender. So park your
    hover-car and saddle up your unicorn for Futurama’s grandest adventure
    yet: BENDER’S GAME!
