Hmm yeah that does sound a bit different :P I can't say I'm a devoted fan or anything. There are a lot of muppet films and shows I haven't seen. I did love Muppets Tonight though back in the day :)
Breja: I think almost all the Muppet movies are brilliant, though obviously some are much better than others (the Muppet Christmas Carol being probably my favourite). I was very happy that the two new movies were quite good too. I'm just worried about what will happen to the Muppets now, after the second movie's disappointing box office and the cancelation of their latest TV show. And the new guy doing the voice of Kermit just sounds wrong...
Don't know what I was thinking, I meant I saw the 2015 one, Fury Road :) I also saw the first one a bit earlier the year, and I'm not sure what to make of it. It has an incredibly weird vibe. Sort of like everyone's either crazy or busy going crazy. Which, I think, fits very well with the whole 'society on the brink of collapse' setting. Other than that I still found the chases scenes pretty exciting. And yet, I was relieved when the film came to an end.
Breja: Much as I love the franchise, I don't think the first movie aged very well. It certainly doesn't measure up against it's own sequels.
I should mention though that apart from Fury Road I still have to see the sequels.
