    Yes, sometimes we're cranky, snarky and cynical but we're also big pushovers for gooey entertainment that hits the sweet spot just right, and from what we've seen of "The Muppets" so far in the multiple trailers, it is a film that is blending nostalgia, reverence for what makes those characters work...

    Watch: Full Trailer For 'The Muppets' Is The Best Yet

    It's not been a banner year for The Playlist's inner child. We've been spoiled in recent years, admittedly, but even the better kids flicks of the year so far, like "Rango" and "Kung Fu Panda 2," seem aimed at adults more than children, drawing on the Western and martial arts genres, but neglecting ...

    Jim James Originally Hired To Write Music For 'The Muppets,' Songs On New My Morning Jacket Album

    Thanks to the two recent teaser trailers "The Muppets" looks like a total blast, capturing the vibe that made us giddy for the felt covered co-stars back when we were in short pants. The film features an all star cast (Jason Segel, Amy Adams, Rashida Jones, Chris Cooper with cameos from Emily Blunt, Ricky Gervais, Alan Arkin, Jack Black, Billy Crystal, Zach Galifianakis and more) and will be tuned up by “Flight of the Conchords” star Bret McKenzie. But it wasn't always that way. With My Morning Jacket's new album "Circuital" hitting stores today, frontman Jim James has been doing the press rounds revealing that at one time he was on track wri...

    "Green With Envy"? Yep, that's the fake title given the trailer for "The Muppets" but how many other movies are there coming out this year starring Jason Segel, Amy Adams and a bunch of felt covered co-stars? The answer is none.

"Hugo Cabret," "Drive," "The Skin I Live In," "Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy" and many, many more. But this writer has to confess that he's almost as excited about a somewhat less highbr...

    The Playlist's 100 Most Anticipated Films Of 2011 - Part 1

    That’s right, 2010 is already in our rear view and we’re looking far, far ahead into 2011. If 2010 was the year of audiences rewarding original, smart blockbusters (“Inception”) and punishing glossy, but empty big-budget tentpoles (“The Tourist,” “Tron: Legacy”) the new year will find studios hoping once again that comic franchises and sequels can bring in the big bucks. No less than five comic-book movies are on the way with “Thor,” “Captain America,” “Green Lantern,” “Green Hornet” and “X-Men: First Class” all swinging into thea...
