    The Muppet Movie

    ★★★★★

    As I assume people saw with my previous review of this film, this is my favorite film of all time. For me everything about this film is perfection, from the music to the puppetry to the comedy and just every little aspect of it. Most of all, to me this feels like the place where we get the purest performance of Kermit the Frog, and because of that, the closest we can get to Jim Henson as the star he…

    Now I took every chance possible to make this experience the best possible one for me. I saw this in theaters, on one out of ten 70mm prints around the world. I also saw this in Columbus, where all of this takes place, for some reason. But even with all of this, I guess my final take would be I loved everything about this film except for the actual story.

    Before I get into that, one thing I want to…

    I have to say, I really like structural/materialist film. Just the way that these films force the viewer to recognize the materiality of film as a medium(or at least the way it was in a pre-digital era. And this film does just that in spectacular fashion.

    Thirty years after the first pinscreen animated film, Alexander Alexeieff and Claire Parker would return to the form to create the first narrative film in this style. While this sounds like an accomplishment, there really weren't that many more films made in the meantime, and those that were, only Alexeieff and Parker created. While this form of animation is truly beautiful, it's use is heavily restricted by the limitations of the form that also give it is beauty. For decades,…

    This was a fantastic film. I would call this a mix between E.T. and Chronicle. The plot is very similar to that of E.T., kids find alien, alien needs help, kids help alien, government tries to find alien, alien escapes with kids help and goes home. What made this different was the cinematography, which was similar to Chronicle. One kid, Tuck, obsessively videotapes everything, and this leads to several different cameras, being handled by the kids, and creates a very…
