MUPPETS FROM SPACE (HDNET) cover image Click to play video trailer
I just got a chance to see the movie "Muppets from Space", and thought it was pretty good. It was one of the strangest Muppet movies I've ever seen but I still really liked it. It just had a different Muppet environment. The movie was very interesting. It was mainly based on a Muppet, Gonzo, who wants to know what species he is and will kill to find out. He is very eager to so when he finally does he over exerts with joy, not to mention the outcome of him finding out what he is, is very shocking. My favorite character in the movie was Miss Piggy. She always has a very unique, independent, and proud personality. It just makes her a person you want to pay attention to, not that she doesn't drag enough attention to herself already. She is very interesting. My favorite scene in the movie was when the sandwich was talking to Gonzo. It was one of the most hilarious movie scenes I have ever seen. It was another thing that made the overall movie so strange. The scene won't let you stop laughing. This movie also taught a moral. It taught that your family is really just the ones that love and care about you. I really liked this movie's message. I recommend this film for kids ages 4-14 and hope you like it. I know I did. It seems very strange but you have to watch the whole movie to understand it. I found it entertaining and a great time passer so remember that next time you want a movie. If you're a Muppet kind of person, you'll love this movie. Catch this movie all month on HDNet - kidScene. Ajay Sharma, age 14, KIDS FIRST! Film Critic. This Muppets' movie is based around Gonzo more than any of the other Muppets. Muppets From Space is a very fun and clever movie. Gonzo is a little confused about who he is and why he is around. The movie has plenty of hard laughs from hilarious "one-liners" to funny slapstick comedy. The movie's soundtrack packs some of the Funkiest hit's from the 80s and are always funny to see the Muppets react to them. The characters are all very colorful in this movie. Another thing I liked about this movie, were how deep the morals were in it. Adults will love this movie. There are plenty references to 90's pop culture and it's fun seeing parodies of classics in the film like Shawshank Redemption or Independence Day being done by Muppets. There are tons of great celebrity cameos to be found here too. When I was little, I loved this movie because I loved aliens and space. The movie had a very satisfying conclusion and was definitely fun to watch. The new characters are also instant classics like Shrimp and Bobo the Bear. All your old favorites return in this one as well, Kermit, Miss Piggy, Animal, and others are back. My favorite character in this movie would have to be Gonzo's best friend, Rizzo the Rat. Rizzo is one of the funniest characters in the movie. I also commend the puppeteers and their voices bringing to life each and every Muppet in this movie. All the Muppets are all so unique and colorful which is why I think the Muppets are so popular. Spielberg fans will appreciate allusions to Close Encounters of the Third Kind and E.T.. Jeffrey Tambor also does a brilliant job at playing the villain that muppet-napped Gonzo. Overall, I had a lot of fun with this movie and seeing who Gonzo really is and how he belongs in the Muppets' universe. Definitely one of the best Muppets' movies to date. This is a great movie for the whole family. All in all, I give this film 4 stars out of 5. Blake Hawes, age 15, KIDS FIRST! Film Critic.
