    I would be fine with your opinion, if YOU HAD SEEN IT!!!

    BlueFrackle is right, what don't you like about it.

    >>>Ok, Lets approach this from a different angle.

    What dont you like about it ?<<<

    Thank you for not jumping down my throat about it. My main problems is the EXACT things a ton of people are stating here and on TP. Mainly the human acting. Its funny, unbeknonst to people I have seen a portion of the movie. From what Ive seen the Muppet portions are fine, but the human acting and plotting is a bit unceremonious.

    I will get around to seeing it soon, and post what I think.
    I just have to laugh how I get flamed for saying the same dissenting views virtually everyone else is. Typical.


    I actually review films for online news sites, so I would be happy to break down point for point what I think about it.
    I really wonder why even though Im far from the only one saying it looks less than interesting, Im getting jumped down.

    Corey,

    We are jumping on you as you haven't seen the d**n movie and are making an a** of yourself because of it.

    Would you write a book report on school for a book you hadn't read, but instead had just glanced over the endflaps?

    You've only seen one small scene with one human actor. That ain't enough to base the movie on.

    Cory,

    Ok, So this is bad, If you want to watch the Human Actors, They arent so abd that you dont want to watch the movie tho.

    Ok, so we are getting somewhere you dont totaly hate it already, You need to see the plot to actually know about it tho.

    I think its because most of the other people who stated their views, Have actually seen it already.

    See ya

    I guess the fact that dozens of other people stated the EXTACT FREAKING things as I did before even seeing it doesnt matter to you? It amazes me, a ton of people on here said the exact criticism, cynical things I said.

    Perhaps I shall go back and edit in that I finall sat through it, maybe that will shut you up.

    Cory,

    I should think thats probably because they stated theur views before Nate saw it himself.

    He didnt wanna jump on someone and then see himself wronged once he bought the DVD.

    Now ive seen it, ill wrong people. But i didnt before i had seen it.

    See ya

    The hypocracy runs deep it would seem.

    That's because they have seen it, and therefore I can respect their decision Corey, as they have a basis for it. You do not.

    No, I was talking about the vast majority that said the same things I did BEFORE they saw it. I guess you somehow didnt read any negative comments before people saw it. The thing that gets me, is am I suppose to pay $20 to justify my comments?

    simply, yes.

    I steered clear of those threads until I saw the movie, I didn't want it ruined.

    You on the other hand have posted very vocal, very visable threads about the movie sucking, when you haven't even seen it.

    Most of the posts I've seen are from people who have seen it, and then stated they didn't care for it. That's cool. I didn't see anyone saying they didn't like it who hasn't seen it.

    It's not rocket science to figure out what Luke and I are saying Corey.

    Cory,

    You havent got to pay $20 to justify your comments, Just wait till it comes to a place near you and then rent it for a night.

    Then tell us what you think...


    (The DVD only costs 10.99 here - Hehee)

    see ya

    No, it's pure hypocrisy. To quote you:

    >>>simply, yes.

    I steered clear of those threads until I saw the movie, I didn't want it ruined.<<<

    How conveinent. You mean to tell me you or Luke didnt read any dissent for dismay for the film from people who hadnt seen it? Please.

    >>>You on the other hand have posted very vocal, very visable threads about the movie sucking, when you haven't even seen it<

    As did quite a few other people, you just chose to 'see' my posts and respond to that. If you frequented TP you'd see I am far from alone in vocal opinions on things. To be complacent and quiet is
    not good. The only problem I have is when you make comments about my vocalness, akin to a horse that needs to be shot...or when Luke says JHC wouldnt like my comments. Danny, a pilar of the online Muppet community was vocal about not liking Beanstalk, yet got a free personal tour of the JHC studios.

    Corey,

    When people made comments before the movie aired, they were stating their pre-conceptions. Stuff along the lines off 'i think i might not like it because xxxxxxxx' or 'i think doing a direct to video film is a bad idea because xxxxxxxx'. Now the movie is out there most of these people have seen the movie and now given their informed comments and review of it - those opinions may or may not have changed but as people who have experienced what they are talking about it's totally justifiable.

    You on the other hand aren't making pre-conceptions - you are making comments as if you had seen the movie and really hated it, and thats it's a forgone conclusion that when you do see it, you'll think its rubbish, and that spending money on it is a waste. This is the difference babe - rather than saying ' i think i'm gonna hate it' you are saying 'i hate it already'.

    As for my comments about the Muppeteers not liking what you are saying - i simply mean that if i myself put time and effort into working on something and some idiot came and rubbished it to hundreds of people without even bothering to see it first, i would be pretty p*ssed off.

    Hey Cory, a slightly different question: what do you think of A Very Muppet Christmas? Do you like it so far?

    hey now hold on, gang,

    Let's rememebr this is a forum and Cory's opinions (though they be uninformed and misguided) are still Cory's opinions. i'm not aying I agree with the litttle geek or his approach to things, but still they are his opinions. Personally, I have not seen KSY either and no I don't expect to like it based on what I have heard about it. BUT since I am ont enthusiastic about it, you can bet I'm no spending $15 on buying it and I CAN wait until Blockbuster has it. Since it is a DTV release it may be another week or so before we see it in Blockbuster or somewhere. And that's cool with me. It gives me time to stir, meditate, read reviews both good and bad. The people who like it have different tastes and expectations than those who hate and that's cool man. It takes all types to make up a fan base. A few of the positive reviews I've read have actually got me looking at it from another angle so I won't go into it so tunnel visioned about hating it. So let's all take a step back and breath gang. or as Jackie has reminded so much this summer: peoples is peoples (have you ever noticed Louis Zorich can make anything sound wise)

    Peace out,
    Matt
