    films are always better after lining up for three hours to rush it at a film festival. still good, but not a 4.5. benoit blanc singing sondheim is an added half star itself, but the “Hugh did this” line reveal and the knife thing almost make this go down a half star. almost. HOWEVER, I can’t help but thing that this would’ve been better if frank oz played yoda and miss piggy in this instead. can you imagine if they…
