Attendance- Pretty good, probably 50+ people (but not totally sure, I was trying to hide my face), mostly women but there were a few guys
Sherlock Holmes- Looks good, I'm happy Noomi Rapace has broken into Hollywood
We Bought A Zoo- This is the oscar-bait film I keep hearing about? It looks terrible, laughably sappy-cheery. No way I'm sitting through that.
Man on a Ledge- Looks like a decent thriller that I will wait for the DVD for
The Hunger Games- AMAZING!!!! Looks so good on big screen
Snow White and the Huntsman- Also looks incredible on the big screen, people were buzzing on this, I can't wait to see it
The Woman in Black- Looks ok, I'll probably skip it
Romance drama with Tatum/McAdams- Girls are going to eat this up
lol, well it is what it is, I'm drawn in now because I've seen the other films. It was entertaining. Fast paced considering what the plot of this one is, some parts are so bad it's funny (werewolf talk etc), but you go in knowing that this is what you're gonna get.

Alvin - I hate this series and I hope it dies a spectacular death next month
Arrietty - The voice actors seem very out of place, but I'm sure it'll be decent. Too bad Alvin's going to gross like twenty times as much as this.
Brave - I don't mind this trailer as much as a lot of people seem to. Got some people chatting afterwards
Small Fry had the theater laughing the whole way. Maybe got a little too silly at points but it was a solid appetizer.
As for the film, I loved it. I can't decide what my favorite song or my favorite joke was and I hope it outgrosses Cars 2.

Cinemark Palace 20 Boca Raton
Theater Capacity: ~240 (20% full; surprised to see it was a four-quadrant audience)
Ticket Price: $8.00
Tin Tin - same trailer as usual, weak reaction (as usual).
The Pirates Band of Misfits - looks okay by claymation standards and got lots of laughs from kids in the audience.
Big Miracle - I'll watch anything with John "Jim Halpert" Krasinski in it, even if it's a true story drama about rescuing whales. Got a good reaction from the audience.
Journey 2 the Mysterious Island - looks mediocre (see Land of the Lost); got laughs at The Rock's peck-dancing in the end, though.
Brave - got some talking from the audience, but I don't know what to expect from this next Pixar venture.
SMALL FRY (Pixar animated short)
I was pleasantly surprised to see this playing in front of the movie. Everyone loves the Toy Story gang! And even though this wasn't as funny as the last Toy Story short film (Toy Story Toons: Hawaiian Vacation), Small Fry left the audience laughing and warmed us all up for The Muppets.
The Muppets was a riot! Everyone in the audience--young and old, male and female, fan and Muppet-virgin--laughed in equal measure throughout this Muppet adventure. The colors were bright, the story was easy for everyone to follow, and the musical numbers were awesome... i.e. there were plenty of jokes or sight gags to relieve those people who get nauseous enduring a musical number in their movie(s).
Jason Segal and Amy Adams are a sweet match as lovers Gary and Mary, and I think the perfect amount of screen time was devoted to their characters' story without detracting from the real stars of the picture: Walter and the Muppets. And similarly, I believe an appropriate amount of time was allotted for each muppet and their respective significance to the franchise. Perhaps the thing that really makes The Muppets special was the long list of cameo performances featured throughout the movie, as if it's some sort of statement Hollywood was trying to make that they embrace the Muppets and support their rebirth.
This really was a nice film that kind of does for this franchise what J.J. Abrams did for Star Trek. The purpose was ultimately to shine a spotlight on a cultural treasure, both reminding old fans and introducing a new generation to the fun, comical, imaginary-yet-real world of the Muppets. If you're a fan of any previous Muppet show/movie, any self aware films (Austin Powers, Harold and Kumar), or any theatrical films with a final romantic number (A Mighty Wind, Moulin Rouge), I assure you that you'll enjoy The Muppets and it's a safe bet for watching with your family and friends this holiday season.
THE VERDICT: 9.1 / 10.0, A-

CARS ll? From what country are you?
Muppets1:35 PMHenderson, NV20% fullMy sister and I sat somewhat up front so we didn't hear any crowd reactions, but by god every trailer except for maybe "Brave" was just awful. "Journey 2"? "Cars 2", and now this Michael Caine?! Sad."Small Fry" had a clever premise, but somewhat bad pacing. Easily the only mediocre Toy Story outing, which was a unusual Pixar disappointment, yet it didn't last long.Muppets was fantastic, it's gonna kill Hugo and Arthur Christmas this holiday weekend. I honestly don't know why Paramount thought Hugo stood even a chance.

Introduce a little anarchy. Upset the established order, and everything becomes chaos. I'm an agent of chaos. Oh, and you know the thing about chaos? It's fair.

Total gross-20 dollars
Who were Henry the VIII and the Duke of Earl? Unsure-but they must of been great to have songs about them.
