Welcome to Multiplex Time Machine.

This weekly limited-run series is based on the idea that 2007 was a surprisingly great year in modern movie history. It saw bad movies, good movies, and GREAT movies, but more than anything, it saw NOTABLE movies. Every episode of this show will look at a release from that same week 15 years ago, in 2007.

After years on the small screen, the Simpsons finally made their theatrical debut with The Simpsons Movie! Originally released on July 27, 2007, it hoped to make the case that this was a movie and not just a long episode of the show. To help us figure out if they were successful, we asked Ari Lipshaw, co-host of Adapt or Perish and lifelong Simpsons fan, to join us!

The Simpsons Movie was directed by David Silverman from a screenplay by James L. Brooks, Matt Groening, Al Jean, Ian Maxtone-Graham, George Meyer, David Mirkin, Mike Reiss, Mike Scully, Matt Selman, John Swartzwelder, and Jon Vitti, and starred Dan Castellaneta, Julie Kavner, Nancy Cartwright, Yeardley Smith, Hank Azaria, Harry Shearer, and Albert Brooks.

Multiplex Time Machine is hosted by Jeremy Latour and Ian Averill.
