With the exception of Walter, a perfectly serviceable character who joined an ensemble already way too rich with personalities to add another, 2011’s “The Muppets” was sort of a perfect reintroduction to Jim Henson’s most famous creations: playing directly to the notion that Kermit and the gang were outdated, Jason Segel’s pet project highlighted their timeless appeal with a story as wholesome and yet subversive as the show and movies that inspired it.

Muppets Again
2011's "The Muppets" arrived on a wave of nostalgia and some very savvy marketing, that converged into a final product that was a big ball of fun (remember those parody trailers?). This time around, that wistful feeling has faded, the marketing has been more traditional and Disney sort of just expects you to show up.

No, Viggo Mortensen isn't starring in some new Marvel movie, despite the name of the developing drama "Captain Fantastic." Instead, the actor will be joining "28 Hotel Rooms" director Matt Ross' film about "an idealistic father who, after a decade of living off the grid in the forests of the Pacific Northwest, must return with his six young kids to assimilate back into society."

10 Things We Learned From The 2014 Golden Globes
If you're a salesperson of aspirin, raw eggs or hair-of-the-dog booze in Hollywood, today is a good day for you: it's the morning after the Golden Globes, otherwise known as the single most hungover day in the Hollywood calendar. The night that truly kicks off the two-month-long season of awards ceremonies, all leading up to the Oscars at the start of March, its reputation is as one that not many take seriously, but everyone treats as a bit of a party, with some gloriously decadent shenanigans taking place over the years.

20 Most Anticipated TV Shows Of 2014
Somehow, we're still getting think pieces on whether or not the movies are superior from TV, presumably from writers who haven't yet worked out that you're allowed to watch both. Ultimately, the movies can scratch itches that TV can't, and vice versa, and the two mediums can quite happily co-exist, even as the lines between them blur a little.

You might think with no shortage of Jim Henson creations to choose from that a Muppets movie doesn't need star power to back it up. But cameos have been a staple of the franchise since the beginning and that's not stopping with the latest entry in the series, "Muppets Most Wanted."

The yearly tradition of watching award shows, and then cringing through the broadcasts as talented people are forced to try and appeal to every person in the world with watered down jokes and lame puns, will at least get a reprieve at the Golden Globes. This past January, BFFs Tina Fey and Amy Poehler were a big hit at the Golden Globes, and so of course, they were courted to return. And that wooing went smashingly as the pair are gonna be regulars, at least for the immediate future.

Last night TV's finest -- which these days tends to include some of movie's finest too -- gathered for the Emmy Awards, while the the rest of us stayed glued to "Breaking Bad" and to some extent, the series finale of "Dexter." Either way, both options were better than that dubstep dance routine to "Breaking Bad" on the awards show. And once the jokes were over, and tributes were finished, some statues were handed out honoring some fine folks.
