May in Review
Aqua Teen Hunger Force Colon Movie Film for Theaters, Matt Maiellaro and Dave Willis. [C-] may 5th 2007.
[I guess this was kinda funny. I laughed a lot at the intro, but then I was bored for the next hour and ten minutes. The theater served beer, which made my experience better, but whatever. I'm a little ambivalent about talking about it, but that's just a response to the filmmakers' ambivalence towards making a good movie. "We've got your fucking money now so feel free to leave." Fuck you. To be fair, I dig the show and the brand of humor, but it really doesn't lend itself to a feature film length, and there was a definite feeling that the dudes that made this were trying to make an ultimate declaration of their contempt for their audience with this picture. Still, I guess I'd watch it again to see if I thought differently the second time. I don't like not liking stuff.]
