Things I Like: Scrooged (1988 Film)

Back when Scrooged came out in 1988 I was just a few months old so this one was made for another generation. I had heard about it at some point, and I knew Bill Murray was in it. I also knew (because it’s plain obvious) that it had to deal with Charles Dickens’ A ChristmasContinue reading “Things I Like: Scrooged (1988 Film)”

Things I Hate: Christmas with the Kranks (2004 Film)

Things I Like: The Muppet Christmas Carol (1992 Film)

While A Christmas Carol is a classic piece of work, I admit that maybe there are too many adaptations.

Things I Like: Arthur Christmas (2011 Film)

I don’t think I even heard of Arthur Christmas when it came out years ago. I’ve been trying to see a few new Christmas movies this year, and Arthur Christmas seemed promising. I heard it did very well with critics, but what did I think? The story starts in the modern day as Santa ClausContinue reading “Things I Like: Arthur Christmas (2011 Film)”
