"Keep believing, keep pretending; we've done just what we've set out to do, thanks to the lovers, the dreamers, and you!"

Created by Jim Henson, the Muppets first burst onto the pop culture scene in the mid-1950s, and several theatrically-released films followed in the decades to come. 1979's The Muppet Movie was the first theatrical outing of the beloved characters, and it's widely... read more

Review of The Muppet Movie

I'm very thankful that The Muppet Movie is not my first exposure to these characters. I've seen many of their movies before, as well as their TV show, so I know that these characters are capable of being funny. Had I seen The Muppet Movie first, however, I likely would've avoided the muppets like the plague. A truly terrible film in just about every respect, The Muppet Movie is a disaster, and ... read more

A good movie

Every year I try to watch a franchise I’m rather oblivious of and if I recall correctly I started a couple of years ago with ‘A Nightmare on Elm Street’, than ‘Star Trek’ and last year I saw all the movies of ‘Planet of the Apes’. This year, I decided to watch all the Muppet movies and, of course, I had to start with this one. First of all, I think I never watched the Muppet Show (I ... read more

" Notes: I think I never watched the Muppet Show (I did watch the cartoon ‘Muppet Babies’ a lot though) so I didn’t watch the movie feeling nostalgia and some past memories. Still, I have to admit it, it was pretty good. Indeed, most of the puppets are really fun, some of jokes were quite hilarious and those puppeteers definitely did an incredible job to give life to those characters. However, even though I’m fully aware that the plot was of course of no real importance, I had a rather h"

""With his Muppets, Henson found a balance between fuzzy post-hippie positivism and self-deprecating wit, and he added in the same quality that made many of the era’s cultural phenomena so charming: simple problem-solving." - Noel Murray"
