Futurama: Bender’s Big Score

Year: 2007
Studio: 20th Century Fox
Director: Dwayne Carey-Hill
Writer: Matt Groening
Cast: Billy West, Katey Sagal, John DiMaggio
The first example of the burgeoning power of the Internet fanboys, Futurama wasn't pulling the ad dollars the timeslot warranted when Fox cancelled it in 2003, leaving millions of fans heartbroken.

The weight of their devotion has led to this, the first of four feature lengths Futurama movies, and it's evident from the first minutes the show's lost none of the incendiary zing of the series. When Fry, Leelu and co are fired from their jobs as galactic couriers, Professor Farnsworth explains that the idiotic network executives have killed them off, all while the huge neon 'Box network' sign outside flickers on and off to read 'Fox Network'.

From there it's a rip roaring ride and belly laughs come thick and fast in a tale of unrequited love, time travel, snarky aliens determined to make off with the most powerful device in the galaxy and the usual characters you love.
