One of the all time greats! Have you seen the 3.25 hour 2019 version with Guy Pearce? Let's just say it is really good but much darker with much more backstory (Dickens never could write a decently fleshed out character). I was very pleasantly surprised.

Yes I was watching it the other day but fell asleep on it, not because it was boring but because I was too tired , but I will watch it again.

BY far the best of the Christmas Carol movies.  And nobody is actually GOING  to the movies. You cant.   Not with Covid.  Of course this one is on yearly with any cable, satellite or streaming service.  I own the DVD, its color on one side and black and white on the other.  I usually watch it in black and white. It puts it more in perspective. For 1951 they do an excellent job on the ghost scenes. Better than many current high tech ones. IMO.  The 1938 version with Reginald Owen is worth praise also.  And June Lockhart's family is in that one. Two members.

I was so bored over the Holidays that I watched WW 1984....and I hate comic book movies to begin with.  OMG, what a steaming pile of poo that movie is!  Do not...I repeat....DO NOT waste your time on this!

I saw the Seymour Hicks one I’m sure  I’ve seen the Reginald Owens one.

Fatman (2020)

 

I really enjoyed this dark comedy Christmas tale with Mel Gibson. This now is my favorite Christmas film after Bad Santa (2003) with Billy Bob Thorton.

If you like films that are "in the style of" a Coen Brothers type of story, you may enjoy this film.

Finished my David Bowie movie marathon (for his birthday January 8 and his deathday January 10) with these two. I saw "Christiane F." about a year before I went to Berlin and it prepared me for the real Zoo Station. You literally could not make this movie today.

Summer can't come quick enough this year.

 

 

 

Another great film by Bruce Brown

Something light and funny and amusing…and, coincidentally, both set in France. "The Aristocats" is the last film Walt Disney greenlit before he died. One of the last classic animation films from the golden days of Disney's "Nine Old Men": Ollie Johnston and crew. Splendid voices in the cast…Sterling Holloway, Eva Gabor, Phil Harris, Scatman Crothers, Nancy Kulp, and Pat Buttram. The Jazz Cats "Ev'rybody Wants to Be a Cat" scene is swinging.
