I absolutely agree. Though I DO admire the Christmas Carol and Muppet's From Space (the latter being one of my favourites) I do dislike the fact that the Muppets were cast aside while we got a few people we couldn't care less about taking centre stage. Especially since Amy Adams was given such an embarassing role. I honestly felt bad for her during scenes like the restaraunt song. It was just so awkwardly executed it made me feel really sorry for her.
"I hope this new film will star Kermit and the Muppets as the leads. Rather than celebrity vehicle featuring the Muppets."
This also touches upon something I thought was flawed about the movie. It seemed to cannibalize itself. They're trying to make The Muppets relevant again, but by having all of these new hip stars and constantly cracking jokes about the fact that the Muppets are currently irrelevant, it seemed to completely destroy those intentions.
The best animated movie since Beauty and the Beast as far as I'm concered, it made me cry, laugh, just go wow! Just a fun movie, probably my favorite animated of the year, and I lovd UP too, but this is more traditional Disney.
I work as a custodian for a company called Sabbow and Co Inc. We have four companies under that banner....Phoenix Precast Products...concrete sewer and water. Wilber Vault Co. we make and install burial vaults. World Trade Co. we import and sell monuments and Granite State Crematory where we cremate people and I also am one of the Crematory Operators. I also do purchasing, driving, animal control (the owner's two Newfoundland) and pretty much anything else they need done which is alot!
Nice one mate! you got me all cited then but then i remembered you was N Zealand and we still dont get it til Oct!
Saw District9 though and it was WOOOOoooooHoooooosome!
also i went to a one night only digital showing of my third favourite horror of all time - The THING last night and it was also WOOOoooooHoooooosome too!
I dunno mate i reckon the novelty will wear off for normals!? obviously we get super eager and Pissed! but you'd think a worldwide thing would generate massive buzz instead of just individual buzz and I already know way too much about both from just stumbling upon folks coments about the films! it's really annoying! occasionally we get it the other way like with Taken or REC which i both saw on DVD before they even hit the states but at least it aint with EVERYTHING like when I was a kid or maybee less films came out back in the day so it just felt like we got everything second hand!?
anyway there you go i'm sympathetic to our plight and that's my moan for the day! lol
with you on the release date farce! UP AND District 9 aint out here(UK) yet!
UP not til October!!!
I don't get it but it makes life almost unbearable because I can't listen to the reviews or join in on conversations in case of spoilers!!!
