Tomatometers In For Simpsons And Bourne -- And They're Looking Good!

by | July 25, 2007 | Comments

The Tomatometer is officially in for two of the most highly anticipated films of the summer — The Simpsons Movie and The Bourne Ultimatum — and the results should excite eager moviegoers.

There have been rumors of a full length Simpsons feature for over 10 years, and the wait will finally be over on July 27. Early reviews for The Simpsons Movie indicate that good things come to those who wait. The movie is currently at 92 percent on the Tomatometer;Brian Lowry of Variety quickly puts to rest any doubt that the Simpsons clan can entertain in a feature length film. “Put simply, if somebody had to make a Simpsons movie, this is pretty much what it should be — clever, irreverent, satirical and outfitted with a larger-than-22-minutes plot.”


Another young Hollywood star goes wild.

The Orlando Sentinal‘s Roger Moore is equally enthusiastic. “With a hearty ‘Woo-hooo’ and no ‘doh’ spared, The Simpsons make the journey from small screen to big with their subversive wit, their wanderlust and their sentimental streak entirely intact.”


“D’oh!”.

Perhaps James O’Ehley at SA Movie & DVD Magazine sums it up best. “Sure, watching The Simpsons Movie is like watching a longer-than-average episode of The Simpsons. And your problem is?”

For those looking for some live action fun, you won’t have to wait long. On August 3, the final chapter of the Bourne trilogy will hit theaters. According to the Tomatometer, which is currently at 100 percent — The Bourne Ultimatum may be the best Bourne yet.


Damon is Bourne to run.

Emanuel Levy from EmanuelLevy.com declares, “Finally a movie for adults: Easily the most intelligent, mature, and exciting Hollywood picture this summer, boasting a shining turn from Matt Damon as the coolest (anti) hero around.”

Variety‘s Todd McCarthy confirms that The Bourne Ultimatum is sure to be a fun time at the movies. “The third and purportedly final installment in the mountingly exciting series is a pounding, pulsating thriller that provides an almost constant adrenaline surge for nearly two hours.”

Edward Douglas of Comingsoon.net also praises Bourne. “The perfect finale to a true trilogy … the quality of the filmmaking makes it the strongest Bourne movie yet.”


Finishing out the Bourne trilogy with lots of action.

The Bourne Ultimatum stars Matt Damon and features Joan Allen, Julia Stiles, David Straithairn, and Albert Finney. The Bourne Supremacy director Paul Greengrass takes the director’s chair once again.
