    obviously as any man of a muppet knows the correct answer is blue ray but mrs pingu says i wont get anything from having it on blue ray over the dvd she bought.

    so i am only going to have 70% of the muppety goodness. :(

    i may just sneak a blue ray copy in a couple of weeks time...

    Dvd - haven't got blue ray here.

    Bungle73 I was there, now I'm here

    It's Blu-ray.

    Blu-ray of course. You want to really be able to see the texture of muppety felt in HD.

    I've got a projector and DVDs look really shit on it, so it's Blu-ray all the way for me.

    You may want to watch it before committing any money to it and if watching it first means parting with more than 5p I'd give it a miss. Biggest. Disappointment. Ever.

    I can't remember the last time I left a cinema with a bounce in my step like that.

    you sir have no taste. it was the best movie I have seen in years. I even had the theatre doing banam nam which made me a god in my nephews eyes.

    muppet = win FACT!

    thb this. I left with that happy glowy feeling. the world needs more movies like this. Of course they should also bring back the muppet show on a saturday evening.

    i wil grant you that i was feeling a bit of a muppet of a man during the forst 10 minutes but after that it was pure muppet magic.

    They are ace, which was why I felt so disappointed with the god awful script. Trust me, I would have been up there banam a namming with you but crying real tears of disappointment. The Muppets deserved so much better imo.

    I thought The Muppets got the mixture of sweetness and sharp wit down perfectly. Like many films these days it was a little longer than it should have been and the first half is better than the second, but no film made laugh more this year. Introducing a new muppet was potentially fatal, but Walter was great. It reminded me a little of Pee-Wee's Big Adventure one of my all time favourite comedies. It walks that same fine line of innocence and knowingness in an almost pathologically cheerful universe which gives it an edge that stays just on the right side of creepy.

    actually i am with you on the length thing. films these days seem obsesed with being longer than they need to be.

    for example that new johnny depp film (Dark Shadows) was about 112 minutes too long IMO

    The Muppets would have been perfect at just under 90 mins.

    I didn't bother with Dark Shadows, it looked rubbish.

    They are! At least Danny Baker is taking a 3 month sabbatical from his BBC London job to write a new series of it.

    Apparently if you pause the blu-ray you get 5 minutes of entertainment?

    i may have a slight muppet addiction problem. Watched it the other night... watched it today with nieces and nephew... will be watching it again tomorrow with mum and stepdad... and i am still looking forward to seeing it again.

    maybe its because its a film that makes me happy
