    I love the Extended Cut of the hilarious Screen Test! the audio of the screen test is way better than the Columbia release. I could tell that it was Steve Whitmire performing Sweetums. :) :o :grr:

    I'm watching it right now (I'm at Steve Martin's scene haha, I am extremely impressed with the picture quality! Muppet movies always seem to look fantastic on Blu-ray... you can see the puppets' textures so well.

    I'm now looking even more forward to Great Muppet Caper and Myppet Treasure Island on Blu-ray.

    Really that's interesting! I really can't wait to get a hold of this. I went to Wal-Mart today with no money just to see if it was there and yes it was!

    I thought the bonus features lacked a little, but not as bad I was thinking. It's well worth the buy, heck having the digital copy makes one heck of a bonus.

    here's a question. Is the movie in wide screen or pan to scan? remember 2005 when they where just going to release pan to scan and changed it to have both.

    Yeah fortunately nowadays people are actually smarter and informed about things like original aspect ratios. Honestly I can't believe it was ever even a thing that movies were chopped up for home video release. I'm so glad I learned the importance of OAR before I really started buying DVDs ~ten years ago.

    Anyway, my point is that it seems when it comes to Blu-ray the studios do it right an only release a movie or show in its OAR, thank goodness.

    I wish I could say how awesome the release is, but it seems that Australia will be getting it last...again. Anyone know about the release date?

    I don't have a Blu-Ray player yet, but I'm thinking of picking this up in advance of my purchasing a BRPlayer, (I have to get one eventually, right?)

    I wanted to point out, that if you enter your code for the Muppet Movie on Blu-Ray during the first week of it's release, you'll get double the points. So hurry!

    Just like you'll have to eventually get whatever replaces the Blu Ray. ;)

    I have debated over whether to get this release or not. Oddly enough, I feel more sold on it for the Doc Hopper commercial over the camera test.

    At first I thought the commercial was an extended version of the scene, before figuring it's probably just the commercial in full screen as opposed to on TVs in the film, meaning we get to see the thing better (and if the sequence has any reaction shots where we don't see the TVs, and I can't remember off-hand, then we get to see those parts). Though I read in one review that this version of the scene still has vocals from Kermit and Fozzie even though they're not shown (so Jim and Frank provided voices as reactions when the scene was filmed/tapped as opposed to having them make reactions while they were filming them watching the commercial?).

    I wonder why the camera test was shorter on the first DVD release (did they just happen to find a longer version?). I haven't even seen much of the camera test. I started watching it on YouTube some time ago (I think it was before the features were even announced) but never got around to watching all of it.

    Favorite moment of the screen test:

    :o: Hold on Kermit, Sweetums let loose the rabbits
    :): You let loose the rabbits?
    :grr:: Sweetums Sorry, It's just...
    :o: Oh, he killed four of them
    :): YOU KILLED FOUR OF THEM?!?!?
    :o: Never mind, they were faking
     
  18. Just to make sure, does anyone know if the DVD has the same bonus features (including the camera test) as the Blu-ray?
