Every film that has ever been nominated for an Academy Award in any category. Enjoy!
They're closer than you think.
When Kermit the Frog and the Muppets learn that their beloved theater is slated for demolition, a sympathetic human, Gary, and his puppet roommate, Walter, swoop in to help the gang put on a show and raise the $10 million they need to save the day.
It's fine if you don't like this movie, but it probably means you're an angry, hate-filled asshole, and fuck you.
I AM A MUPPET REBORN!!!!!!!
I do not condone a man to have sexual relations with a muppet.
It's like beastiality when you think about it.
While not as good as I first remember, you can't deny that you walk away from the viewing with a nostalgic twinkle in your eye, a whistle on your lips and a spring in your step... and after all, isn't that the point?
What's not to like about The Muppets? Funny, charming and endearing The Muppets work on all levels for all ages. This isn't the funniest film i've seen BUT I can't remember the last time I sat watching a film with a smile on my face for the whole 90mins.
All The Muppets gang are here including new edition Walter and I must say he is rather adorable. Jason Segel and Amy Adams are an item who are very twee and sickly but play it wonderfully and it totally works to the films credit. Also I must add, there are plenty of cameos but much of them are a case of blink and you'll miss them. I was surprised to see…
"..Your fans never left you, the world hasn't forgotten. All you need to do is show'em again!"
...and so I was drunk and sad and distraught and knew I needed something that would make it impossible to frown, to cry, or to anger. I noticed I had a forgotten copy of The Muppets and suddenly I knew it was the recipe for joy I needed now, now more than ever before...and I was right.
After all these years, I never forgot. I needed their love, and they gave it to me in spades.
Wer „Die Muppets“ im Kino verpasst hat, muss den Film nun auf Blu-ray nachholen. Ein guter Witz jagt den nächste, der neue Muppet-Film ist einfach wunderbar und die Lieder machen auch noch gute Laune. Wenn einer eingestaubten Franchise ein großartiges Comeback gelungen ist, dann sind es die Muppets. Bei solch einem tollen Film mit einer Prise Nostalgie, braucht es kein 3D und eine modernen Computereffekte. Die Muppets sind liebenswert und ein muss und zwar genauso wie sie sich hier präsentieren.
Good movie along with second one only i saw in cinemas between in February 2012 and April 2014. the songs was good
Props to Jason Segel for putting so much into this.
I'm a lifelong Muppet fan. Always have been, always will be.
Make that double. While I'd figure nearly everyone here got his or her cinematic training wheels on George Lucas and Steven Spielberg, I would say the person that really immersed me in not just movies, how much fun they could be to make, was Jim Henson with The Jim Henson Hour. Here he was, an imagineer of the first order, hosting a tv show that met its audience on the level, and without talking down to them,let a peek behind the curtain of the wizard. For me, that was truly inspiring. His death when I was a wee lad struck me as probably the first time I ever saw…
This is the movie that brings back happy childhood memories. I get goosebumps every time I watch it. Some great puppeteering and human performances. Just so sweet and nostalgic.
I don't like this movie.
That's not to say that I dislike the Muppets as characters. I like The Muppet Movie as a movie well enough, even if it does lean way too excessively on those godawful celebrity cameos (as in, the movie is very good when Steve Martin or Mel Brooks isn't hamming it the hell up).
But I can't think of a franchise that lost steam faster than this one.
And I'd partially blame this one, because Jason Segel fucked it up.
I don't think he did this maliciously. He's not Zack Snyder, who will openly express his contempt and disgust with whatever superhero whose legacy he's currently ass-fucking (there's a reason Alan Moore publicly insulted him).
Watching this I can see where they went wrong with the sequel. In my opinion, they should have gone with another Walter-centered piece like this, with the Muppets running alongside him. At least then we could have had a stronger narrative instead of that weak doppelganger thread they decided to hang the film from.
This is not a perfect reboot ... I really wish we could have seen Frank Oz' reboot instead of this (Disney went with Segel's pitch instead), but it's still a lot of fun, with some great musical numbers.
I’m a Muppets fan from way back and a HUGE fan of the original movie (which I would still argue isn’t a kid’s movie at all), but I had some trepidation watching this latest film, mostly because I haven’t seen a good Muppets film in years. Jason Segal of “How I Met Your Mother” fame wrote this one, and it harkens back to old school Muppet silliness, complete with dancing, singing, witty banter, and bad jokes. Segal also stars in the lead as Gary, with Amy Adams as his girlfriend Mary. Gary, Mary, and Walter, Gary’s puppet brother, take a trip to Los Angeles to see the sights and sounds, including Muppet Studios. But upon arrival, they find it closed,…
Still great after 8 viewings. If only most wanted could have duplicated this.
This list took a long time to make. These films, perhaps, aren't the most technically brilliant ones, but rather, the…
Excluding these because they are not in Letterboxd's library:
My Man (1928) The Battle of Paris (1929)
Footlights and Fools…
