My most favorite Christmas book, and Christmas movie, of all time...A Christmas Carol. When I heard a couple of years ago that Jim Carrey would be playing Scrooge in a new movie version of A Christmas Carol, I was thrilled. However, when I found out it was going to be shot in performance-capture animation, I wasn't very happy. I just prefer my Christmas Carol films to be with live action players. Well, I went to see the new movie this weekend and I was very pleased. They have really improved this type of animation. The characters have an abundance of expression and the talent of the actors shines through. As usual, Carrey was great. And Gary Oldman and Colin Firth shined as well. If you love Christmas and especially the story of A Christmas Carol, then I think you will like this movie.
Here are a few of my favorite versions of the movie:
Scrooge (1970)--starring Albert Finney
A Christmas Carol (1999)--starring Patrick Stewart
A Christmas Carol (1951)--starring Alastair Sim
A Diva's Christmas Carol(2002)--starring Vanessa Williams
Which is your favorite? Will you see the new Disney version?
