    As I assume people saw with my previous review of this film, this is my favorite film of all time. For me everything about this film is perfection, from the music to the puppetry to the comedy and just every little aspect of it. Most of all, to me this feels like the place where we get the purest performance of Kermit the Frog, and because of that, the closest we can get to Jim Henson as the star he…

    ★★½

    Now I took every chance possible to make this experience the best possible one for me. I saw this in theaters, on one out of ten 70mm prints around the world. I also saw this in Columbus, where all of this takes place, for some reason. But even with all of this, I guess my final take would be I loved everything about this film except for the actual story.

    Before I get into that, one thing I want to…

    ★★★½

    This is such a simple film, it is really beautiful. We have a single take, with hardly any camera movement. We focus on a child watching a play, without knowing much more than this.

There are no words, and it was taken all in one breath. The face of a kid,…

    The last of The Marx Brothers films for MGM(and it was advertised as such), this film just doesn't have the panache of earlier Marx Brothers films. Really there is enough screen time for other characters that they could be replaced and other than a few gags and Harpo's musical number, you wouldn't really know it was ever a Marx Brothers movie. There are some reasons for this though. The first reason is the death of Irving Thalberg, who was a…

    This was a fantastic film. I would call this a mix between E.T. and Chronicle. The plot is very similar to that of E.T., kids find alien, alien needs help, kids help alien, government tries to find alien, alien escapes with kids help and goes home. What made this different was the cinematography, which was similar to Chronicle. One kid, Tuck, obsessively videotapes everything, and this leads to several different cameras, being handled by the kids, and creates a very…
