    As we get closer to the movie coming out, tons of reviews are sure to start pouring in. I think this thread should suffice to collect all of them in one place.

    I'd love to kick it off with my own review of the movie for The Muppet Mindset. I had the extreme good fortune of seeing The Muppets last night... and it was magnificent. Here's my full review:

    Prawny, you beat me to the punch! I had just read your article and thought 'we should start a thread for reviews'. Very nice write up , my friend. I eagerly await this film and the many reviews that follow.

    I was extremely fortunate to get an invitation to the cast and crew screening. It wasn't the premiere, but it was before the premiere. It was all thanks to connections I have and Muppet people being the nicest people anywhere.

    I heard you met Peter Linz, who I've met on quite a few occasions because he lives in my town. He's such a nice guy, isn't he? He was really the perfect choice for Walter. I always get nervous to speak to him though because he's often with his family or talking to someone else, and I usually end up saying dumb stuff to people I really admire.

    Sorry, no spoilers from the movie from me. You need to see it for yourself and be surprised by the greatness. I did meet Peter Linz, who is one of the nicest people I've ever met. He's a daily reader of The Muppet Mindset and was kind enough to not only sign something for me (as Walter!!) but talk to me for quite awhile before and after the screening. The only other Muppeteer there was Bill Barretta (Eric Jacobson and Matt Vogel were still in Nashville after Piggy was on the CMA's, Dave Goelz was visiting family, Steve Whitmire was at the Latin Grammys with Kermit) and we'd already met but he's so amazing and funny that it was like meeting him for the first time again. Director James Bobin was also there and an amazing person to talk to. He was so proud of the movie and so thrilled to hear I liked it. He reads the Mindset too. It's humbling... it really, really is.

    I just feel so happy for YOU! You're so young and you've already had so many great experiences, and things are only going to get better from here! (Not that I should really be calling you young... I'm only 16... but... um... you know what I mean)

    Right now, I have the weirdest mix of feeling happy for you and feeling jealous of you, but mostly I'm feeling like I want to camp out in front of the nearest multiplex until the movie opens. :crazy:

    Don't know if these would count as "spoiler questions", but I'd like to know...:
    • Did you notice anybody from The Jim Henson Hour or Muppets Tonight who we hadn't previously spotted in the previews?
    • In the recreation of The Muppet Show Theme, were there still empty archs, like in all the promos we've seen?
    • Did you catch the names and performers of all the Moopets?
  15. I wish I could have met you last night, Prawny. Wanted to talk to someone first hand who is a huge muppet fan and saw the movie for the first time. Of course I can read the review (which I did!) but face time is always cool. Glad you came out.

    • No.
    • I don't remember.
    • Bill Barretta was Foozie... and unfortunately that's all I really remember. The only ones that spoke at all were Miss Poogy and Foozie, briefly.
