I hope I notice it!
I didn't hear him
Is Bret McKenzie included in both versions of the movie or not?
Dang it! I could not get my copy today ! Oh well, I guess I have to wait for tomorrow. At least it's not five months.
Good news guys!
The MMW Blu-Ray is currently #44 in the "Movies and TV on Blu-Ray and DVD" category after less than a day, I really hope it keeps climbing so the muppets have a future. Also, the DVD is at a modest #66 in the same category, but still, it's only been less than a day.
I love how in the blooper reel Kermit says: "This never happened on Sesame Street."
I didn't get a chance to get mine today...*tears* but we had sort of a downpour here today and I'm talking get out the ark, roads were flooded, closed, and accidents everywhere rain so as much as I love the muppets me and my baby's lives are way more important. Hopefully I can out tomorrow weather permitting!
Hmmm, when the the Electric Mayhem sings, "Do it all again", his voice is high pitched and nasally...I guess I am the only one who hears it? It is pretty loud...
It's heard VERY easily in this version without the instrumentals (thanks, Rugratskid!):
I couldn't hear him
Lip's voice is too mixed in with Dr. Teeth, Floyd, Janice, Animal, and Zoot's voices! Meanwhile, the MMW Blu-Ray has climbed up to #41 ! The DVD has climbed up to #65. As I read some other threads for TMS Season 3, and it making #5, this doesn't seem like anything, but now I remember that it wasn't available for pre-order until last night, so WOW, this IS doing good. Hopefully we can crack the top 20 soon !
Just finished watching the extended cut. I was glad that the full songs were in it, even though Interrogation replaces the mystery interpreter with Beaker. I liked that "Bear left, Right Frog" reference.
I think the Stalar and Waldorf cut was kind of a rip off. I mean I get the joke, but it still felt like a rip off.
I actually bought it at like 1 AM the night it came out, no doubt I was the first to buy it at that Wal- Mart since they didn't stock it yet and I had to ask a lady whom works there to dig it out for me,
I'm watching the DVD right now.....which is probably why I'm so giddy and happy right now!
As for the Extended Cut, I'm going to wait until the prices have gone down before I import it from the US.....Pfft, 50 bucks just for a Blu ray. You've got to be kidding me!
This is interesting...there are two different slipcovers:
It seems that it's pretty thin on the extras. Last time we had all kinds of nifty stuff in the extras menu, plus Easter eggs and the thing that let the Muppets take over when you paused. This time we got Rizzo's fan, the S&W cut, a so-called "blooper" reel, a song video, and...was there anything else? Not much love went into this release. But on the other hand, the movie itself is what I bought it for, and the extra footage is candy.
I didn't have time to watch it all last night, so I can't comment on much. I did watch the Interrogation Song, that being one of my favorite bits from the movie, and...wow. Love the extra lines and the translation gag. On the other hand, the Gonzo verse made me flinch. The voicing was spot-on, but I have to wonder if that was Goelz under the puppet. It sure didn't seem to be. All the body language was off, and the way he acted, Camilla might as well have been a pet. Also, I hate the mouth on that puppet. It makes him look like he's had a stroke.
On the subject of blooper reels, I feel gypped when most of the "bloopers" are not bloopers. A "blooper" is a mistake. Ricky Gervais bursting out laughing is a blooper. Characters chatting for the camera is not. And I miss the good old days when Muppet bloopers often involved the puppeteers, a hand or a head coming into view, or even the puppeteers letting the puppets fall. *sigh*
Griping aside, I'm happy I got the movie, and happy that I now have a HD TV so I can see every glittery fiber of Antron fleece. I was annoyed by Amazon's shenanigans, and by the time they did make it available on their site I thought "Well, the price at Target is just the same, and I can walk there during my lunch break and have it in my hand right then, or I can save the tax and buy from Amazon, then wait for them to pack it in the inevitable slew, and then wait for the shipping. What's the question again?" And it turned out I had a long-forgotten Target gift card in my wallet, so I ended up paying just over three dollars.
I didn't see the blooper reel or the extended cut, but one of my favorite parts of the movie is when Constantine wants to be more like Kermit, and they show old Muppets and Sesame Street clips.
At the moment the Unnecessarily Extended Cut is the #1 best seller in kids & family blu-ray discs on Amazon. It's #6 in the corresponding DVD category. Hmm...lot of Robin Williams flicks on those lists.
Everybody's paying their respects to him.. Glad to see that.
