It's been a while since I wrote about movies... I've seen several since then. I'll try to write a little impression from the ones I remember:

Muppets from Space - I love the Muppets. The old muppet movies had so much great humor that went right over all the kids who thought the movie was for them. True to that classic style, Muppets from Space is thoroughly enjoyable. Even without Jim Henson, the Muppets haven't really missed a beat.

Inspector Gadget - It could have been better. It could have been worse. Although funny, Inspector Gadget just doesn't quite flesh out to be the movie it could be. The story is way too sketchy. There were some great parts (people or objects run into the camera at least four or five times), but the story just didn't flow.

I know there were more... I just can't think of them at the moment. Couldn't have been that good, I guess...
