Wow.... is it just me? or was this movie totally creepy!?!! Everyone has heard this story before....and it's normally a very touching, feel good type of movie. This version of this was down right scary at times! I'm not saying it was bad....it just was not at all what I expected, and found many of the characters disturbing...especially in 3D!

If some of the animation overdoes it, a lot of it is downright gorgeous. Few images this year have followed me home like the Ghost of Christmas Past, here imagined as a bright-flamed candle with the face of a child. It flickers. It whispers. It flies. Full Review

A Christmas Carol -- I mean the source material, without a corporate possessive attached to it -- remains among the most moving works of holiday literature, and Mr. Zemeckis has remained true to its finest sentiments. He is an innovator, but his traditionalism is what makes this movie work. Full Review

What are in very short supply, though, are the central chords of Dickens' carol: Crachit's generous spirit, Tiny Tim's sad plight, Scrooge's emotional arc as he finds his humanity. Oh, the scenes are there amid the action, but they are fleeting. By the time A Christmas Carol finishes piling its many shiny presents with their many bells and whistles under the tree, there's no room left for tears for Tiny Tim. Bah humbug indeed. Full Review

This Christmas Carol seems like a pale ghost of Dickens' magical Christmas classic. Full Review
