I agree the 2nd movie was the best of the 4.
I will always love and hold dear Futurama, certain episodes stand out, the romantic sentimental, never to forget Frys dog, or the holophone episode, or the message Fry wrote in space. The comedic lover never to forget Zoidbergs attempt to win a mate, the Whatif machine, or anything Bender has ever done. Oh, and Zap of course, (moreso than Kif).
The episodes that appeal the least to me are the lengthy plot related Nibbler time twisting episodes, and the other overly story arced episodes that introduce new characters too often, which is the category in which I would place these movies.
I have to say that the Wong family has always been consistently boring material for me, and I know, others too.
I guess 90 minutes has that problem, in that there is a necessity to create a drama rather than a subsection of throwaway laughs and The Simpsons movie suffered from a similar fault. I believe it could have been done though. It's fair to say that South Park pulled it off better than most with their Bigger Longer movie.
It's sad to see the gang go. Regardless of speculation, it will be years, if at all, before they re-emerge, and although these 4 episodes were less than perfect, each and every outing was punctuated with many smirk worthy hits, if not laugh out loud moments, and anything that can keep you smiling and wanting more is worth archiving on the good shelf in my opinion, and I will revisit not only classic episodes but these movies again and again over the years ahead.
The idealist in me looks forward to a day that the writers get off the phone and yell, 'we've been unaxed!', cause although movies are eager berries to pick, they often lack the exhilarating hit, the condensed juice of a good 22 minutes of laughter, packaged in the format we have trained our brains to consume so well.
What say Fox, these guys deserve a call for their efforts. Agreed?

The Synopsis for Futurama: Into the Wild Green Yonder (2009) 1080p
Dark forces older than time itself are on the attack, hell-bent on stopping the dawn of a wondrous new green age. Don't you hate when that happens? Even more shocking: Bender's in love with a married fembot, and Leela's on the run from the law - Zapp Brannigan's law! Fry is the last hope of the universe, recruited for an ultra-top-secret mission. Could this be the end of the Planet Express crew forever? Say it ain't so, meatbag!

I agree the 2nd movie was the best of the 4.
At the ending of Into the Wild Green Yonder (the fourth and last DVD belonging to the resurrection of the extraordinary TV programme Futurama),there is a naughty reference to the possible continuation of the series; but,considering that the destiny of a continuation is on the air,the suspense is on the fans (like me) and on the creators from the series...will the sales from the DVDs justify the making of another analog collection ? or are the rumors of the return of the series to Comedy Central or Cartoon Network real ?.Nobody knows it (or says it),but I hope that Into the Wild Green Yonder is not the last time we will ever see Futurama because,although the other movies were entertaining but nothing special,this one resulted to be brilliant,and it has filled me with even more enthusiasm to see Futurama continuing.My main complain with the three previous movies was their fractured screenplays,which seemed to have been composed by two or three stories joined on a forced way to get the 90-minutes running time,without paying too much attention to the flow or structure.On Into the Wild Green Yonder,that problem completely disappears because it presents a solid story which is perfectly structured and which flows completely naturally,until getting to a very satisfactory conclusion.And,besides of that,this film is very funny.The story from this movie seems simple on its shape but it hides a complexity which is full of interesting ideas and audacious sci-fi concepts.The animation is perfect and it is much more polished than in the previous films.I do not know if the casual spectators will like this movie as much as me,but I am sure that the other fans of Futurama will also like this film very much.The only fail I found on this movie is that some dialogs feel a little bit forced.Into the Wild Green Yonder is a brilliant animation film,which may not be at the same level of the series,but which deserves a very enthusiastic recommendation.I truly hope Futurama will continue.
The Planet Express crew is on Mars where Amy's parents are paving over to build a new bigger casino. Eco-feministas are protesting. Fry is injured and starts hearing other people's thoughts. Leela saves a Martian leech that gets attached to her. Fry meets homeless Hutch who warns him about the Dark Ones. Leo next wants to destroy large parts of the galaxy to build his miniature golf course. Farnsworth is his rubber stamp but the crew finds primordial life on an asteroid. Leela joins the eco-feminists to sabotage the project. Zapp Brannigan is tasked with hunting down the eco-feminists. Fry learns the asteroid is an Encyclopods egg which is storage of endangered species and the mortal enemy of The Dark Ones.
I like some parts but there is too much story. It's a bit too disjointed. It feels like the characters are going every which way. I usually like Futurama more when the crew is together. This is the fourth and last Futurama movie before it got renewed by Comedy Central. Sometimes the movie is shown in four half-hour episodes. The movie is already disjointed and watching the four parts separately doesn't help. I love Futurama and this is solid fan service. It's unlikely to be good for newbies.
