After writing about the madcap mayhem of Thoroughly Modern Millie last week, I thought I’d follow up this week with an even zanier, campier movie. And now that it’s been…
I wouldn’t be surprised to find out that Boober is a cutter.
Muppet fans are some cruel bastards.
Who’s the big blue guy? Read on and find out.
Go and see the Muppets, and if you don’t like it, go straight to hell.
"Fraggle Rock" is a children's TV fantasy series created by Jim Henson, featuring a set of his typically whacky muppets as the "Fraggle Rock" characters. The show aired from 1983…
They could call it “The Cancer Causing Anti-American Puppet Crapstravaganza,” and I’d still go see it twice.
Say hello to my little friend!
Do you like Muppet movies? Do you like murder movies? Or perhaps you've always wanted to murder a Muppet? Well, in any case, it looks like you're in luck. Lionsgate has signed on to Happytime Murders, a murder-mystery featuring Muppets (or something very similar) created by the Jim Henson Company.
Happytime grounds us in a world where humans and puppets live side by side, albeit with the puppets as second-class citizens. The furry cast of once-popular kids’ show The Happytime Gang are being picked off one by one, and the only ones who can figure out who’s behind the deaths is a drunken, washed-up private eye puppet and his former LAPD partner, a human being.
That sounds a lot like Chinatown mixed with Who Framed Roger Rabbit. That is to say, it sounds like the greatest story in all of human history. Oh, and if you answered "yes" to wanting to kill a Muppet, rot it hell. I love those furry bastards more than my own family. (Empire Online)
George 'El Guapo' Roush of Latino Review says that "if you hate The Muppets, you hate life." I'll take it one step further. If you hate The Muppets, I hate you. By that logic, I don't hate Nick Stoller, the director of Forgetting Sarah Marshall. Stoller is at the helm of the latest outing from Kermit and the gang, The Greatest Muppet Movie of All Time. I always call The Muppets, the 'gateway drug for comedy nerds.' It's the first comedy we're introduced to, at least people our age. That's what we're going for with that. It will be for the whole family I guess, and for anyone who likes Muppets." Unlike my other childhood favorites (Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Eraserhead), The Muppets are perfect for a remake/reboot since the characters don't age. Well, neither does that "baby" from Eraserhead, but that's pretty much a Muppet when you think about it. At any rate, until Shia Labeouf signs on as the villain who pretends to be interested in porking Miss Piggy so he can kidnap The Muppets and sell them off to "Furries," I'm going to remain optimistic. Waka, Waka, Waka!
