I always knew Beaker was a nasty piece of work.

It's a faithful reproduction, but you could say that about an art class for 13 year olds. Sure, there's an apple and a pear and a wine bottle in the frame, but is the result any good?

For three students in an intro to 3D modeling course at ITT Tech, I'd say it's pretty good. They probably went far beyond what was required for a class project.

Hm....Wasn't too crazy about the rendering but the concept is interesting.

casting Rizzo as Cypher was pretty funny. But "woah" coming from Kermit's mouth? Save me. please.

It's cute and pretty well done, but sadly I cannot appreciate yet another Matrix parody/homage/whatever. I guess I maxed out years ago.

True story: I was at a bar the other night that for some reason was projecting "Kung Pow: Enter the Fist" on the wall, and I remembered that the scene in that movie they showed in the trailer over and over again where the guy fights a CG-animated cow shooting milk from its teats in bullet time was the official moment Matrix parodies stopped being funny.

This thread was worth it for the C for Cookie trailer.

Yeah. The original was parody enough.

Needs more Grover.

Sad. It reminds of of how much I love it and how the original trailer gave me chills... but then came 2 and 3, ack.

How dare they besmirch the Muppets in this way!?

I'm with brundlefly, amusing, but geeze the muppets?

I'm waiting for Bert and Ernie to star in Brokeback Mountain.

I, for one, welcome our Muppet overlords.

We need a Fraggle Rock Matrix parody.
No we don't.
Teletubbies?

It woulda have been better if they used the muppet voices, too.

Jim Henson is not around to imagine the muppets anymore.
That is why they fail.

Gonzo as Agent Smith? No fucking way. Wouldn't Sam The Eagle have been the more logical choice? C'mon!

Hell, yes.

"So say we all," says NinjaTadpole, and yeppers, says I. And plus one for the Battlestar reference.

If you want to see some real Muppets, you can always watch Statler and Waldorf From The Balcony.

Tomplus2 -

They made sequels?
posted by Samizdata at 2:13 AM on September 19, 2006


Beaker made a better agent, and should have been Agent Smith. He's much more frightening for the disparity with Beaker's harmless original character.
