For cinephiles. By cinephiles.
A clever video for the most part, though I didn't care for that long stretch where Animal just kept saying, "Momma... Momma?" over and over again. Guess the filmmakers couldn't come up with a better substitiute for lyrics about a guy getting shot in the head.I'd like to see another Muppet film so long as it's tongue-in-cheek like the original Muppet Movie with Charles Durning ("Max! Follow that Frog with ME IN THE CAR!") and not banal and tired like Muppets in Space (1999). Actually, if you want to take my word for it, the last truly great Muppet film was their Christmas Carol version. Michael Caine was an excellent Scrooge in that one.
A Muppet Christmas Carl was amazing. According to what I've heard this time they are trying to recapture what the Muppets were capable of in the 80's. I also encourage checking out Youtube as Muppet Studios has their own channel...
Henson was to the Muppets what Cameron is to the Terminator series. I'm not expecting a masterpiece so long as its better than its predecessors of the 90's.
