The Muppet Movie

 (1979)

The Muppet Movie Blu-ray delivers great video and solid audio in this overall recommended Blu-ray release

They're irreverent, irrepressible, and downright irresistible. They're the Muppets! -- starring in their first full-length movie. See how their meteoric rise to fame and fortune began: with a rainbow, a song . . . and a Frog. After a fateful meeting with a big-time talent agent, Kermit the Frog heads for Hollywood dreaming of showbiz. Along the way, Fozzie Bear, the Great Gonzo, and the dazzling Miss Piggy join him in hopes of becoming film stars too. But all bets are off when Kermit falls into the clutches of Doc Hopper (Charles Durning), a fast-food mogul seeking to promote his French-fried frog-leg franchise!

For more about The Muppet Movie and the The Muppet Movie Blu-ray release, see the The Muppet Movie Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.5 out of 5.

Starring: Jim Henson, Frank Oz, Dave Goelz, Charles Durning, Austin Pendleton, Jerry Nelson

The Muppet Movie Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

The Muppet Movie makes a long, hard trip through time and arrives at its Nearly 35th Anniversary celebration in style thanks to a smartly, respectfully (albeit not perfectly) remastered 1080p/AVC-encoded presentation sure to score extra points with Muppets diehards. The film is grainy, although not quite as garishly grainy as it's been in the past, meaning it's been subjected to some amount of digital manipulation. Fear not, though. Digital manipulation need not always be a four-letter word. Like anything else, it can be done well -- seamlessly even -- or it could be done poorly, given any number of factors including challenges presented by the film elements, inherent shortcomings in the original photography, or the worst of the worst, haphazardly implemented noise reduction (a la the recent release of The Sword in the Stone). Here, it's a little of the first, a little of the second, and -- I'm very happy to report -- not much in the way of the latter. Grain often has a nice, filmic texture, and typically doesn't impede the image in odd ways. Sometimes the grain field does look and behave a tad unnaturally, suggesting Disney's remastering didn't involve a quick and easy cleanup, but rather a more involved top-to-bottom overhaul.

Fortunately, the good far outweighs any bad that appears, and the overhaul is much more a blessing than anything resembling a curse. Colors are lovely, with notable saturation and largely natural skin (and felt) tones. Primaries are bright and confident, with reds that exhibit some exciting pop. Black levels are satisfying on the whole (minus several nighttime shots that haven't aged well), and contrast has been dialed in carefully and capably. Detail is impressive too, with refined edges and a variety of revealing textures and closeups. (You can even spot the razor-thin wires that hold up Kermit's bike.) There's plenty of softness to be had, of course, and even some hazy, diffusiveness. But all of it thankfully traces back to Isidore Mankofsky's photography, nothing more sinister. (Only a handful of shots and scenes could be called eyesores, and nothing out of the ordinary for a catalog release of a 1979 production. So no major loss.) Moreover, artifacting, banding and aliasing aren't at play. Only minor crush (that mainly creeps in during Kermit and Piggy's date and the gang's campfire sing-along), infrequent ringing (the worst of which haunts Doc Hopper during the final showdown) and a very small selection of shots plagued by negligible print damage are even worth mentioning. Long story short? Disney has given Kermit and The Muppet Movie ample opportunity to stand on their own two feet, and the results are worth some celebration.


The Muppet Movie Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

Disney's DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track sadly isn't a remarkable lossless mix, or even the joyous celebration I expected. Prioritization and clarity are a bit sticky; lines are sometimes tinny or buried, effects are hit or miss, and the soundtrack's instrumental music is occasionally muffled (the worst of which occurs right at the outset, as the camera pans down on the studio lot). But, overall, front-heavy and unimmersive as it can be, it's a solid offering that's generally faithful to the film's original sound design. Dialogue is generally clean and clear, without much in the way of hiss. LFE output is decent, adding some welcome slap to The Muppet Movie's slapstick. The rear speakers don't have a lot to offer, although the songs are fuller and more energetic than they've ever been before. Beyond that, there isn't much to report. The Muppet Movie sounds fine, but little more. Adjust your expectations accordingly.
