(ca) wrote: The Muppets is a fantastic return that made me realize that the Muppets actually do need to return. It's been a while since we last seen the Muppets, and like the movie, we kind of sorta forgot about them which the movie explained it very well. The acting is great, and the writing by Jason Segel and Nicholas Stoller is very good. The songs are very catchy and it gets you singing for a lot of the songs. The humor is really funny, and the self referential is really good and a bit funny too. The cameos are smartly well done, and the plot is really good also. The chemistry between Gary and Walter is great and it makes them likable brothers. The Muppets is an excellent movie that kids and adults would enjoy of it being a hilarious, clever, and heartfelt.

The one problem I have with the storyline is ******SPOILER ALERT!******* that the one person most outraged with the situation, the Ambassador destroys the one piece of evidence that might clear up the situation and avoid an international incident (his job) without viewing it.

Ihm gegenber steht eine Reihe von prominenten Schauspielstars beeindruckenden Kalibers, die Zaillian nicht immer zu ihrem besten aufreiht.Hier kommen wir nmlich schon zum ersten Problem von SFBF: zu viele sekundre Charaktere. Zwar sind die Schauspieler top, und die Charaktere eigentlich wunderbar gezeichnet, sie haben aber allesamt nicht genug Platz zu atmen und sich zu entwickeln.So werden Konflikte oft in wenigen Minuten vom Zaun gebrochen und wieder besnftigt, echte Spannung zwischen den verschiedenen Charakteren und innerhalb der verschiedenen Beziehungen kann sich nie richtig entwickeln. Gerade der Konflikt zwischen Kingsley und Fishburne, deren vollkommen unterschiedliche Spielweisen in ihrem Tutoring kollidieren knnen kaum thematisiert werden, obwohl sie die Klimax entscheidend aufbauen und beeinflussen.Hier wendet der junge Josh nmlich genau die Mischung aus Taktiken seiner beiden Lehrer an, die beide bis dahin unbedingt vermeiden wollten.Auch der Protektionismus der Mutter kommt in einer Szene ganz einfach aus dem Nichts und zeigt eine weitere psychologische Ebene die nur selten bedient wird.Gnzlich befriedigend ist eigentlich nur die Beziehung zwischen Vater und Sohn - sie ist aber wohl die uninteressanteste in dieser Masse an Charakteren. Vor allem Mantegna wird viel Raum gelassen, nachdenklich und versunken im Raum zu stehen, und viel zu oft verliert sich Zaillian darin seinen jungen Protagonisten als Halbautisten darzustellen.Zwar bietet SFBF noch immer berdurchschnittlichen Unterhaltungswert, aber bei nherer Betrachtung muss man dem Film Punkte abziehen fr verschenktes Potenzial.

(es) wrote: Prologue: This segment by John Landis who also wrote it did a great job of just writing down conversations between the Dan Aykroyd and Albert Brooks. The conversations are a bit interesting and it felt like a real-life conversation until the end. When it does go to the end, it didn't necessarily scare me as I would actually never see it coming, but it felt a bit cheap for me and was more of a, meh, way to start scaring us for the movie.Time Out: John Landis does another segment that is a fine segment, but isn't really that memorable. Vic Marrow is great in his last performance, and the story might be nice, but I didn't really care about the main character as he was really mean-spirited. He kept ranting a lot in the beginning that it's predictable to see where it's going. The writing is fine, but I don't think it's as good as the prologue. Time Out doesn't make the movie that great of a start, but it's an all right one.Kick the Can: Steven Spielberg's segment is a great one that doesn't really fit with the movie, but still is enjoyable. The old cast are really good, and so are the child cast. The plot is simple, but it does lead in to the moral of the story which is really good and can make people think differently about wanting to be a kid again, even though there are some people just want to do it for the adventure again which is fine also. It seems to be the most heartfelt out of all of the movie, which I was a bit disappointed that I wanted Steven Spielberg to do another horror movie like he did with Poltergeist, but I was fine with what I got and it seem like a nitpick to me.It's a Good Life: Joe Dante's segment is quite something that is one of the best segments in the film. The kid is really good and can act creepy in this. The imagery is a bit disturbing, and the effects look great, both practical and computer. The plot is really good, and that I want to see more of this than any of the past segments. It gets more and more insane that you don't even know what's going to happen next. The writing is nicely done, leaving some questions for interpretation while answering questions also. It's a fantastic segment that gives in more of the feeling that you are watching the Twilight Zone.Nightmare at 20,000 Feet: The last segment by George Miller is a great way to end the movie. John Lithgow did a fantastic job of being scared and is just having so much fun. The monster design looks really good and scary, and the suspense is really effective. When it got to the scare part, it didn't seem scary and more just really funny when the monster just kept shaking its head up and down really fast. It's not as interesting or crazy as Joe Dante's segment, but it is still interesting and has some crazy moments, mostly from John Lithgow of how scared he can be, but it also still felt like something out of the Twilight Zone like the other segment. Twilight Zone: The Movie is a great movie that is nice to see talented directors to make their own segments. It does seem obvious that some segments are better then others, but there hasn't been a segment in it that's bad or disappointing which makes this movie better than some other anthology films.

They actually use a sample from this movie in their Let's Get Free album. What if someone were able to organize the gang brothas and sistas into a guerrilla army. Subversive.

(us) wrote: A wicked and delightful sequel to the cult classic, "The Abominable Doctor Phibes." Although not quite as entertaining as the original, the film is an amusing satire on the horror genre in which the Good Doctor rises from the grave and eliminates everyone who stands in the way of his quest to bring life back to his beloved bride, using a number of gruesome methods to remove his opponents.Two rotting thumbs up!
