The first playthrough it is kind of interesting to walk through our
favorite town, but then leaves you wishing of what the game could have been vs. what it was.
Get it if you are a hardcore fan....but even then I wouldn't recommend it. Pretty poor.
I originally rented this film because I had read it was an escape movie. That was all I had really heard about it. The title didn't seem very familiar to me, but I thought I would rent it. I was slightly worried that I had ruined the ending for myself, but I was worrying for nothing. From the very first scene the movie had me. Morgan Freeman's performance was PERFECT. The music was great. The plot was surprisingly varied and it pulled me in. And of course the escape scene was the most uplifting thing I've ever seen in a movie anywhere. The plot is so simple. A man beats the system. It affects anyone who is human. If you have disregarded my warning and are reading it without seeing it, don't worry. I haven't ruined it. This is one movie that has to be experienced. There is absolutely nothing else I can say. Those of you have seen it will know what I'm talking about. It seems like I'm at a loss for words, and that's true. Everyone must see this movie. If you haven't seen it, stop reading, go out, and rent it or buy it or borrow it or steal it or download it-just see it. This is worth any rental price. It sounds simplistic to the point of irrevelence. It sounds like any other movie. It sounds boring. BUT ITS NOT. It's beautiful! It's perfect! My writing skills are usually much better than this, but I can't fit this movie into words. JUST SEE IT. NOW. "Get busy living, or get busy dying..."
"The Simpsons" is a satire-comedy-drama centering around a blue collar family living in Springfield, U.S.A. The show features Homer Simpson, the not-so-bright, short tempered but loving father, Marge, the stereo-typical mother with a repressed rebellious streak, mischievious underachiever son Bart, intelligent social outcast Lisa, and the silent pacifer-sucking infant Maggie. The episodes find the family in one situation after another ranging from marital problems between Homer and Marge (season 2, "The War of the Simpsons") to Homer being blasted into space (season 5, "Deep Space Homer"). You never quite know what you are going to get when an episode starts. The writers have a unique ability to make you believe anything, so they can have a wild joke along with a heart-felt message and the two will seem to go hand-in-hand. The show's comedy is very, very, very funny, from hilarious dialogue to outrageos sight gags. On the other hand, the show's drama is also very good. Anyone who says otherwise needs to watch the season 2 episode "Lisa's Substiture" with Dustin Hoffman or season 6's "Lisa's Wedding" (the flash-forward episode) to see the light. Satire is also rampant in the series, from bashing political parties (season 6, "Sideshow Bob Roberts) to talking about the effect of violent television on young minds (season 2, "Ithcy and Scratchy and Marge"). The show mixes all of these perfectly. If you have never seen an original episode of the show go out and purchase the DVDs or videos or whatever you can find. You are missing a great show!
My rating of the show out of 4 stars: 10!!!!!!!
The show centers around a family living in Springfield, USA. Homer (the thick-headed father, husband, and safety supervisor at the nuclear powerplant), Marge (the sterio-typed mother and wife), Bart (the michievious son), Lisa (the genius younger sister), and Maggie (the baby) make up the Simpson family.
The show storylines are sometimes far fetched, but they are so well written that nobody realizes that (like when Bart won the elephant.) The show also to pokes fun at everything but the show stops from letting the jokes ruin the plot.
Many shows have tried creating knock-offs of Simpsons (like Dinosaurs), but none of them have been able to achieve the same popularity.
The only problem with the show is the more recent episodes. Things happen in the show that would never happen in the original episodes, screwing up the show's continuity. The show is more like you average Saturday morning childrens cartoon than the witty, adult show that it used to be. The first seven or eight seasons of the show are great with more dramatic and complex plots. The rest of the seasons have simpiler plots filled with slapstick. Also, the characters in the first eight seasons were also more complex. Homer was thickheaded and mean, but still had a very loving and caring side and would do anything to make his family happy. Now Homer is an idiot who doesn't care about anyone but himself. Mr. Burns (Homer's ancient boss) origanlly had many dramatic lines and was a very realisitic character. Now, Mr. Burns is more like Saturday morning cartoon super villian. The only reason I still watch the show is because I am a very loyal Simpson fan. I want to know everything about every episode. The show still throws in an ok episode once and a while. I watch the old episodes to see the complexness of the characters and plots, but now I watch the show to get a good laugh. If you like insane and immature humor and slapstick watch the newer episodes. If you like dramatic plots mixed with a little bit of humor, watch the older episodes.
In the end, the show still remains the greatest television show ever made.
Rating: On a scale of one to ten: The newer episodes get a five out of ten. The originals get a thousand out of ten.
Jim Carrey plays Truman Burbank, a man whose life is televised 24 hours a day. It's very interesting to see Carrey in a dramatic role. He's actually pretty good at it.
Everyone should see this movie at least once, to see that there is some originality left in movies today.
The show is about people who live inside computers. The sprites, binomes, and guardians do battle with viruses, code masters, and many other computer associated enemies.
The first season and part of the second had simpler plots, goofy sound effects, corny jokes, and very mild violence. But as the show went on, the show got more complex, the goofy sound effects disappeared, the jokes were funnier, and the action increased. Also, there are many inside jokes on the show that you should look for.
The episodes of the later seasons will keep you on the edge of your seat, waiting to see what will happen next. This is also a unique cartoon because as the show went on, the characters CHANGED.
