The Muppet Movie (1979)

Long before the cynical 1990s, before Meet the Feebles and "Greg the Bunny," came this post-modern puppet tale. The filmmakers took the familiar characters from the 1976-1981 television show, Kermit the Frog, Fozzie Bear, Miss Piggy, Gonzo, etc., and tell their "origin" story, following them from their humble beginnings to the gates of Hollywood. read more...

Paddington 2 (2018)

Paul King's Paddington (2015) was so surprisingly wonderful and such an unlikely hit that it seemed nearly impossible for a sequel to be any good. Yet Paddington 2 currently holds a Rotten Tomatoes record, with a perfect 100% rating based on 172 reviews. (Now it will be 173; in full confession, my son and I skipped the press screening of Paddington 2 and we only caught up with it later after we saw the reviews.) read more...

Monsters University (2013)

When I reviewed Pixar's Ratatouille in 2007, I wrote: "Animation studio Pixar is so far ahead of its competitors that the question regarding any new releases is not whether it's any good, but whether it's great." And this written was before the studio had reached true greatness with WALL-E (2008) and Up (2009), and also before they made their first stinker, Cars 2 (2011). Even so, that statement remains true today, and Monsters University is a good one, even if it's not a great one. read more...
