I don’t know why I am so flipping excited for this movie, but the second trailer for Ponyo came out today and I about squealed like girl at a Jonas Brothers concert. I can’t decide if it’s the beautiful art or the cute and absurd story that got me, but it’s certainly something I’m looking forward to. The first trailer was a little bare on the plot, I couldn’t quite follow up how the goldfish was running around looking all… Human. But this brings a lot of that story to light. So enjoy.
And as the title implies, I am double posting because it’s almost midnight and I have to get up early tomorrow to do all the hiking, but in a fantastic bit of good news, Futurama will be coming back on the air on Comedy Central, with all the major voices returning. This almost didn’t happen, and it looked like the entire cast wouldn’t sign on. But evidently, a deal was reached, which spells good news for us and Bender’s shiny metal ass.
If you have never watched the show, I highly encourage you to. It’s absolutely one of the smartest, sharpest comedy shows out there. Like Family Guy, it got a cult following on DVD, and then released four full length films before getting picked up again. Unlike Family Guy, I feel like I’m watching something with a purpose. Now I enjoy both shows, but Futurama has smart comedy, good writing, and a lot of really brilliant science fiction in one show, and is definitely one of the more unique creations out there. So I highly recommend watching the shows and the movies they have released.
