Eat My Feature!!
Early Images From

I am – Hercules!! We’ve got Maggie threatening a monkey, Homer high on a roof, Marge on a motorbike, Flanders chatting up Bart, Springfield afire, Homer menaced by signage and more!! Hopefully time zones and the trade and language barriers will keep these and these online a good long time! For those, like me, who were underwhelmed by the trailer? Remember, both Brookses - Albert and James L. - are said to be highly involved in this effort! Thanks to "Juepucta" for the heads-up!

    Groening Gotta Eat

    by poutineman

    There I said it. I dunno about this one. The teaser trailer wasn't very exciting. The writing on this show has been dumbed down so much in the last few seasons that I can't see the movie rising above its current state of suckiness. Pass.

    Sprinfield mob scene

    by Anakin Whoopass

    Wow, all the town's recurring characters forming a huge mob! That's the kind of epic scene they could never do on a TV budget.

  • Jan. 28, 2007, 8:23 a.m. CST


    by theBigE

    I watch this show with my kids from time to time, and you can find a hidden gem of an episode every so often. Later writers have gotten lazy: recycling scripts, over-reliance on curse words and sex euphimisms, etc. Still better than 90% of what else is on TV. My guess is the movie will be worth the $5 (I love living in small town America where movies are still affordable!)

    by DarfurOnTheRocks

    A Simpsons movies would have been a great idea.....7 years ago. As it stands right now, the writers are reusing scenerios and jokes for a 3rd time in some cases. I think that where Simpsons could have been better was that they could have aged the characters. That could have brought in different types of humor in.... Just a thought

    Re: Simpsons no longer funny

    by clone-o-mat

    I don't think that's actually true. Simpsons has always been social and political satire. The show sends up popular culture and beliefs. What's happened is that, thanks in no small part to their efforts, Americans have become more self-aware and political views have shifted more toward the center since the show began. So the satire isn't quite as biting. I think, in a sense, they're preaching to the choir now. The only way to keep an edge is to get meaner, but the show's not about being mean. It's about being funny and sometimes heartwarming. Family Guy was bred to mean, so it's flourishing now. But none of this means Simpsons isn't funny. It has on eps and off eps, like any long-running show, but by and large, I think it's still one of the best shows on TV. Here's a nickel. You owe me three cents : )

In ireland there is a show called the podge and rodge show, they are puppets and they slaughtered verbally Shane MacGowan who was very drunk. They took the piss.

    by King Sweyn Forkbeard

    No, it's really, REALLY not. The Simpsons should have been axed about six years ago before it became the bloated, unfunny, cameo vehicle for whatever celebrity nobody is top of the hype list at the moment that it is. Anyone who professes to love the show should be campaigning outside Matt Groening's house until he does the decent thing and kills it before the Simpsons legacy becomes completely sullied.

    I'll take sub-par late-era SIMPSONS...

    by Harry Weinstein

    ...over 99.5 percent of the horseshit on the idiot box these days. Comparisons to FAMILY GUY/SOUTH PARK/FUTURAMA have always struck me as pointless, as their dynamics are completely different from each other. It's like comparing Pac-Man, Tempest, Halo, and Monopoly - all great games, radically different from each other. Sure, you could pick and choose elements of similarity (your character in Tempest resembles Pac-Man, and travels around the outside of the playing area similar to Monopoly - but why bother? When you want to play Pac-Man, Tempest, Halo, or Monopoly, any of the other three are poor substitutes indeed. The similarity between FAMILY GUY and SIMPSONS is more pronounced, but it's such a standard sitcom setup that to single out THE SIMPSONS as somehow having innovated that setup is ludicrous. Cough FLINTSTONES cough WAIT TILL YOUR FATHER GETS HOME. (And they didn't innovate it either.)

    Rumored to exist, and apparently not made by Mike Judge (who, the story goes, somehow successfully blocked its release) - but that's just hearsay, and personally I'd think a bootleg of some sort would have emerged by now if it was real. But stranger things have certainly happened, and I certainly wouldn't put it past MTV to pull some dirty shit like that. More likely is that it was almost made, or that it was started and then abandoned very early on.

I'm still going to see this, for what reason I don't know. Maybe it's misguided loyalty for some of the best humor ever to hit television [back when they were good.] Maybe it's the fact that many of the writers of old are working on this, and I'm hoping against hope that, though the trailers looked horrendous, somehow the movie will actually be decent.

Go. Go away. Watch something else. Dive headfirst into other talkbacks. Do what you want. Look for something to enjoy. Heck, Family Guy, or if you're not too picky, American Dad.

    ahh, The Simpsons

    by jimmy rabbitte

    ...just think, when they first got started there was no internet, FOX was an interloping 4th network that would never last, and the T.V. schedule featured shows like, In Living Colour, Beverly Hills 465798465 and the artist currently known as Prince was The Artist Formerly Known as Prince... (I know that last one is an anachronism, but I had to fit in a gag from the show)... I've always liked The Simpsons... not loved, liked... at some point I guess the show will come to an end; but for some reason I just can't imagine a FOX schedule without them... let's face it without The Simpsons the network might never have arguable point I admit but I stand by it.

    This show has really been run into the ground. If the same writers are scripting the movie, then I will not be paying a dime to see this.

    "You idiots are actually excited about seeing images from this movie? Its not like we are looking at Venom or a transformer for the first time." They couldn't write a better line for Comic Book Guy than that. By the way, I disagree with some of you people's regarding entertainment! Let us fight with knives!

    You useless shits can't make your own movie or tv show, so you just come here and rag on one of the greatest shows of our time. While other so-called "Adult Cartoons" such as Family guy, ATHF, and SeaLab have all broken down into nothing but non-sequitors (hey, they USED to be funny), the simpsons writers keep making culturally relevant, character driven stories. None of you comic-book-guys will come around until the show's long over, when you go back and actually watch the episodes you talk so much (talking point filled) shit about. Look back at all the comments about the show being bad, and one thing becomes clear. All of these people got their opinions from one place. Whose blog was it, exactly?

    Why do some Simpsons fans get so defensive...

    by veebeeyes

    with shit like "you people suck. Simpsons is awesome, fact. And anyone who doesn't like the Simpsons is just trying to make themselves look cool." I just don't like the Simpsons. What's so hard to understand about that? Hell, I also like Pearl Jam, ramen noodles, Ang Lee's "Hulk", and giant angry spiders. Yes, I love those things very much. But I'm also not going to take it as some kind of threat and act like an ass just because someone else thinks that those things are just awful. I'm not going to say "You morons. Giant angry spiders are awsome, and if you say that they suck, you're just being a dick." It's much more likely that you just plain don't like giant angry spiders. And that is fine. That's not a threat to me. You are entitled to like what you like, I am entitled to like what I like. We can then agree to disagree about those things, and share with each other our love of the things that we do agree are awesome. But yeah, I DO think that The Simpsons sucks. But you don't see me being an asshole to you just because you happen to like it.

    The funniest thing ever?

    by TheRevengeOfBayouWilly

    I was watching Family Guy tonight, and remembered the time when it was announced that Fox was bringing it back, and all the nerds came out of the woodwork talking about how much better it was than the tired, old Simpsons. Then South Park made two whole episodes on why Family Guy sucks Iraqi cock. Then you don't hear so much from the Family Guy herd. Fair-weather fuckfaces.

  • Jan. 29, 2007, 12:38 a.m. CST

    Tonights Family Guy

    by TheRevengeOfBayouWilly

    I think, proved that it's not that funny. It has, at most, two jokes, and the rest are simply elaborate scenes stolen from other media with the Family Guy characters in it, i.e. Star Trek 2 and a Gene Kelly movie. That'd be like if the Simpsons movie turned out to be exactly the same as Die Hard With A Vengeance, only with Homer, Carl, and the Bumblebee Man as Gruber.

  • Jan. 29, 2007, 12:45 a.m. CST

    That's fine...

    by veebeeyes

    and I respect your opinion. But SOME people apparently liked Ang Lee's Hulk, or else they wouldn't have bought it. SOME people apparently like having pet tarantulas, or else pet stores would not have them in stock. I like them, you don't, and we do not have to agree on their good qualities (or lack thereof). But notice how I did not flip out because you dislike something that I like. See, people disagree with whether or not certain things suck. And frankly, Ang Lee's Hulk and pet tarantulas are simply not worth getting into a fight over. As long as they give me enjoyment, I am secure in the fact that other people do not see things the same way as me, and that does not threaten my enjoyment. Now, if I were to flip out just because someone here said that Ang Lee's Hulk was bad, what would be my reason for flipping out? If I'm acting like a dick just because someone disagreed with me, then it stand to reason that I'd be acting like a dick ALL THE TIME because there will ALWAYS be someone who disagrees with me. That kind of behaviour would be pathologically antisocial, and I don't think it's likely that anyone here is that socially stunted. The other likely possibility is that I am trying to prove something. The question is, what am I trying to prove, and who am I trying to prove it to? It's one thing to disagree with someone's opinion and engage in healthy debate. But some people here actually seem to be getting ANGRY that other people don't like The Simpsons. WHY would someone get angry over something like whether or not a television show is good or not? That's what I'm getting at.

    "nobody's forcing you to keep watching The Simpsons"

    400 episodes

    by supertoyslast

    I think The Simpsons will have had 400 episodes by the end of the current season. In my opinion that breaks down roughly into 100 genius episodes, 100 good eps, 100 'meh' eps and 100 horribly unfunny eps. So the longer it goes on now, the more its average quality will be dragged down. Poor episodes outnumbering good ones will be a sad legacy to have when The Simpsons finally ends. Unless a miracle happens and it attains greatness again.

  • Jan. 29, 2007, 7:38 a.m. CST


    by BizarroJerry

    At first I opened this link and thought, "great, here we go with the same old Simpsons-related talkback. But like a true hypocrite, I figured I'd join in again. What the Hell? Yes, for several years now I have not found the Simpsons funny. And whether you agree about the show lower quality, you must agree it's very different than it used to be. And no, I don't think it's cool to hate the show or anything. It really pains me to once or twice a year tune into a new episode and see that yes, it's still not funny. Instead of laughs, I respond with, "I guess that was kind of funny." But almost everyday I turn on the TV and check the description of the local channel's syndicated reruns. If it sounds like an older one, I watch it. If it's one I know to be recent, I skip it. The older episodes used to stay in Springfield and focus on the characters and their personalities, etc. Now, there are so any episodes that follow certain patterns: The Simpsons go to [insert foreign country here]; Homer becomes a [insert wacky new profession that will include all new characters and a new setting]; The Simpsons all tell tales of [insert subject allowing characters to wear silly costumes and portray parodies of themselves]. I loved the Simpsons, and still do. Which is why I know it needs an intervention. But even so, I'm hoping and praying that the movie will be good and may even breathe some new life into the show. See, if I thought it was cool to hate the show, I just wouldn't care at all.

    there's only one thing that will bring down simpsons

    by BendersShinyAss

    it aint being average. Everything is average. It'll be brought down by being 'too into itself' ... Think Looney Toons. The Road runner is possible the greatest animation ever created - just for it's sheer simplicity. it's sadistic fun. The problem today is it's not sadistic anymore. it hasn't been since the 70's. It's just higher quality and the same old shit. It's just not fun. Simpsons is still fun. And even when it's not really all that funny, it's still trying to be fun for you'r viewing pleasure. And from my own recollection of all the episodes I've seen.... ie; 90% ...... even when it's shit it makes it fun by admitting how shit it is. I still get a good laugh out of simpsons. Maybe it wont translate to the big screen... but I reckon it will :) <p> Seriously, this and Transformers I have faith in. POTC 3 I do not. Nor do I trust Superman returns 2. Maybe Batman begins 2. (calling it 'The Dark knight' is a good start though)

    Admitting its bad

    by BizarroJerry

    "even when it's shit it makes it fun by admitting how shit it is" Admitting that your show sucks does not make up for it being so. It's not ironic or clever. It's like ripping off the plot of another show or movie and then acknowledging it. It doesn't excuse it. Like Studio 60 ripping off Network, and then saying "it was like the scene in Network" later in the episode.

    Family Guy was funny...

    by Childe Roland

    ...although for a briefer period than the Simpsons was. The reason it gets the favorable comparison is because it was more recently funny and, at the time, was much MUCH funnier than the Simpsons. Of course, at that time South Park was kicking the snot out of both of them, and that, too, has taken a turn for the unfunny. Seek ye tuks on Adult Swim. The Venture Bros. and Frisky DIngo demand your attention, amusement and subsequent respect.

    Season 2 of Deadwood, in episode 4 Requiem For A Gleet, there is an utterance of every AICN TB'ers new favorite word: Taint. I'm not sure of the original air-date for the episode because HBO's site doesn't include one. However, since the DVD set was released on May 23, 2006, it probably aired sometime in 2005. Unfortunately that predates our AICN Taint-Fest '07 by about two years. A two-year-old mention of taint... how'd we miss that? reposted from 1408 trailer TB
