A welcome Christmas treat!

"Hello! Welcome to the Muppet Christmas Carol! I am here to tell the story."

In the time since it was originally published in 1843, Dickens' A Christmas Carol has been done to death in countless films and television specials, to the extent that another rote movie adaptation would be entirely superfluous without a unique spin. Thus, it was only customary for Jim Henson's Muppets to t... read more

An underrated yet extraordinary delight.

The idea of mixing the wacky pack of the Muppets created by Jim Henson with perhaps the classic Christmas tale by Charles Dickens is quite possibly the most unorthodox idea that has ever been put to screen. It became the first time that the Muppets would feature in their own film adaptation of a classic novel as there would be the releases of The Muppet Treasure Island in 1996 and The Muppet’s W... read more

Review of The Muppet Christmas Carol

The Muppet Christmas Carol is not nearly as good as I was expecting and hoping, but it's still a lot of fun.

One thing I should clarify, is that if you came to see the muppets, you will probably be disappointed. This film is all about Scrooge, who is played by a very human Michael Caine. This is truly, the biggest flaw in The Muppet Christmas Carol, because with the muppets getting... read more

A good movie

“Continuing with my quest to watch all the Muppet movies this year, it was time to watch this 4th installment. Honestly, even though it has some decent ratings, I wasn’t expecting much. Indeed, by now, I have seen so many adaptations of Charles Dickens’ timeless tale, a story I never really loved, and therefore, I didn’t think this one would be much better. Eventually, I was actually positively surprised and I would go as far as saying that it is so far my favorite movie starring the Muppets. Indeed, this time, they really went all the way concerning the production value and the whole thing looked pretty amazing. Furthermore, I really enjoyed the mix of this rather gloomy tale with their typical cheerful jokes (above all, Gonzo and Rizzo were some great narrators). Also, this time, in” read more

Disappointing

“Like 'The Muppets', I found 'The Muppet Christmas Carol' disappointing, Michael Caine was good in it but I didn't care about the "Muppetization" of Charles Dickens' 'A Christmas Carol' at all! But it had good songs and acting and isn't bad but I preferred 'The Muppets' (although I didn't really care for that either)” read more

Films and the critics who hate them (743 movies items)

"The fit between sentiment and satire is not always a comfortable one and the more dedicated fans of either the story or the Muppets may leave theaters dissatisfied. - Henry Sheehan, Hollywood Reporter This is the dullest and least successful adaptation of the Christmas chestnut I've ever seen. - Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader "

How I became a cinephile (50 movies items)

" A little later I watched interesting stuff at home from VHS tapes. My copy of this movie included song "When Love is Gone" which wasn't in the theatrical release and now they don't have it on recent DVD releases. Unlike children today watching this, I had to clearly face the fact that sometimes relationships don't last. "
