Life’s a happy song when there’s someone by your side to sing along as The Muppets marks its tenth anniversary since the 2011 release. Films like The Muppets are exactly why the Academy Awards needs a Best Comedy category. We’re long overdue and this is certainly one of the best comedies in 2011.

While this film is based on a magazine article, the script took some dramatic liberties such…"A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood Comes Home"
Little Women is another re-telling in a long line of adaptations of the beloved two-volume novel by author Louisa May Alcott. Maybe it’s because of my childhood–you know, the whole growing up with the wrong body–but I wasn’t able to really connect with the film upon my first viewing a few weeks ago.
