Good luck trying to find KSY reasonably or renting it

    I give up. In an attempt to see how bad KSY is fo rmyself(so people cant accuse me of pre judging) I went to all the local rental stores...no KSY. Well one had it on vhs, but its the dvd extras that would keep me from not being completely aggrivated...the vhs would just be a bad special marketed as a movie.

    Ok, so I gave up on renting. What about buying? Oh man, Suncoast wants $28 for it! And BEst Buy and Walmart are locked in at $20. Sorry, but if actual Muppet films, Bear dvds, etc are $15, why would I pay $20 for something vastly subpar.

    Lots not mince words here...KSY was a bad idea. And you know this because 1) There was virtually no promotion or hype for it, not so much as any merchandise or anything. I mean ya know somethings up if ya cant even find it to rent anywhere. It was nice hering about Smig seeing actual Muppets live(goggles and croaker) at the SDCC promoting it, but c'mon. Sounds like nothing more than a glorified Bean Bunny 1993 video special.

    Here's a tip:
    rent the VHS. While the DVD extras are good, there's no real reason to go out of your way for them.

    Well if it was a dvd fine, but for $5 Im not gonna go way the heck out to Egypt to some obscure Blockbuster to rent a vhs copy of KSY...as from what I hear the only reason to even view it is for the dvd extras.

    I am too on a quest for KSY on DVD.

    I haven't found it yet, and I haven't looked (maybe that's why I haven't found it yet. So far my "quest" has been announcing that I'm on a quest). I have found places to buy it, but not rent. But Jackie has told me that I must see the extras. She was right about the MTI extras, so I must rent this DVD!

    The point of this story? Listen to Jackie!

    I got mine at Wal-mart for just under 16 bucks. I think your attitude about this whole video/dvd needs an adjustment Corey!

    I dont think so...if I know my bad Muppet specials/films, I know I dont wanna go out of my way and pay a bunch(well a bunch of money to me) for it. But like Emmy said, I so must see those extras...which from all accounts make up for the actual film.

    How can you 'know' your 'bad' Muppet films and specials when you haven't even seen it. If you are this uber hardcore geek you have been banging on about for years you'd know that Muppet fans have very different tastes - there are people who love MFS, people who hate it. It's the same with Swamp Years - you need to see it before slagging it off left, right and center buddy. Saying you aren't enthusiastic about something is fine but coming on the forum and flaming it into Mars is kinda well out of order because as a regular face here people might think you would have actually bothered to watch it before forcing your opinion on everybody else. I honestly do NOT know what you were expecting from this whole project in the first place - Henson have been totally honest about who this film was aimed at, and the kind of style they were taking right from the get go - if you sat at Muppetfest staring up Bears butt rather than listening to the presentation and came out thinking there were Frackles and Fraggle characters, and that this would be the next 'Muppet Movie' then you should go and live down a Fraggle tunnel. It's not clever - it's just insanely stupid. Your preconceptions were ill informed and off the map, now you are dissapointed before you have even seen it - so basically you've just spoilt it for yourself and are beginning to sound like a mad muffin to the rest of the people who have watched it and given their informed opinions !

    Same here! Why do I wanna go out of my way to rent a vhs copy somewhere in some Blockbuster, when all I really wanna do is see the extras?

    Corey, all that whining you are making about the video reminds me of what they do to old horses to put them out of their misery. You do know what they do don't ya?:eek:
     
  12. Like Emmy said...

    LISTEN TO JACKIE!!

    :D

    Sounds like ya just answered the question of what you think of KSY.


    >>>Your preconceptions were ill informed and off the map, now you are dissapointed before you have even seen it - so basically you've just spoilt it for yourself and are beginning to sound like a mad muffin to the rest of the people who have watched it and given their informed opinions !<<<

    Oh really? Hmmm, so by this rant I take it ya loved the film?
    Basically, Im just saying what a lot of other folks are here and at TP. Other people on MC have said the exact same thing man.
    You see Muppet films are a rare treat, but when one is so painfully executed and delivered in such this manner, well...

    Also, if I had endured sitting through it and had the exact same opinion, what would ya say then? exactly.

    If you really thought I was expecting 'frackles' or some obscure thing(when I posted that it was a joke) from that post, well I dont know what to say about that.

    All Im saying is Im with Emmy and everyone else who is mostly interested in the extras.

    Corey, Is It That Dark in there that you can't see? Let me shine a flashlight in hopes you can understand something.

    You can't say it is painfully executed and delivered unless YOU HAVE SEEN IT!!! Is this concept foreign to you? What about it can't you understand?:mad:

    >>>Corey, all that whining you are making about the video reminds me of what they do to old horses to put them out of their misery. You do know what they do don't ya?<<<

    I just love how you dont seem to be kidding there...and that's interesting. I was expressing the EXACT concerns and things as others on here, yet you make this horrendous reference. Quite frankly I'm a bit shocked you would make a reference like that, not sure if ya had a bad day on the job or what. I expect better from a 'senior member', I would expect that kind of awful uncalled for statement from a 12 year old.

    I have something clever to retort with, but it'd get me flamed into eternity on MC.

    I dont get it...everyone else can express their dismay of KSY on MC and TP, but I say the exact same things people are saying, and I get flamed? Please. You so do not want an old school era of flame wars 98' style on here.

    I make a TP style cynical remark about obvious JHC produced sludge and you and Luke get all high and mighty. Whatever.

    Corey,

    You can't trash something you haven't seen. Why can't you understand that concept. You can say it doesn't interest you and leave it at that, but you are spitting out opinions on the quality, story, etc, with out even seeing it.

    If you said you didn't want to see it, fine. That is understandable.

    You are saying its a piece of s***, and that ain't cool. You have no basis without seeing it IN ITS FULL LENGTH!!!!

    EARTH TO COREY - THEY HAVE SEEN IT !!!!!!

    It wouldn't bother me - you would be giving an informed opinion like everyone else who had seen it. Instead you are the most vocal person here about how bad it was and you haven't even seen it - what a joke !

    Corey, Coreykins, Coremeister - that defintely aint all you are saying - look around the forum, it's like Corey came along and dumped all over this pre-school kids movie. It wasn't even aimed at the regular Muppet fan, it never said it was going to be a regular Muppet movie - it is exactly what they said it is. Just take it as a little something extra that Henson slotted in for the little kids and move on.

    Personally as you asked, i haven't even seen it yet so i haven't commented on how bad or good it was - if i didn't know you well though, you would probably have put me off it by now.

    Earth to Luke and Nate...have you freaking been to the "Kermit's Swamp Years: TV Airings and Your Opinions"??? I can rattle off at least ten people on there who have voiced the EXACT opinion I have on the matter. You guys amaze me, I make some cynical comments about why Im less than enthusiastic about it, and I get the malestrom.

    The amazing part is I could have given the same views if I had seen it, and you would still be saying the same thing. So Luke, what is you ropinion on it? Based on at least a overwhleming majority of people who said it was beyond the beyond, I dont see it being worth $20.

    It is quite astonishing how hot you too can get over my views on a cheapie kid's special.
