Christmas is the most wonderful season of the year and when it’s time for Christmas, it’s time to watch some Christmas movies. If you’ll celebrate Christmas in front of the TV, they will serve you the usual Christmas menu: “Love Actually” and “Home Alone” but this year go to the cinema for a change and watch Robert Zemeckis’ “A Christmas Carol”.
This timeless tale was portrayed countless times but the story never gets boring. Ebenezer Scrooge, played by Jim Carrey, doesn’t believe in the spirit of Christmas. He is such a negative and mean man and is haunted by the three ghosts of Christmas; Christmas past, present and future. Ebenezer Scrooge gets to see all that he needs to see just so he would realize what the true spirit of Christmas is.
Basically, the story is still the same but it’s the animation that makes it different. Of course there is a bit of difference on every version as to keep the viewers guessing. This version is spectacular and is available on iMax 3D so viewers can enjoy the animation even further. Jim Carrey’s portrayal of Mr. Ebenezer Scrooge is impressive.
All in all this movie is great for the season. Some animation can be quite scary for the younger audience but they will surely enjoy it too. It’s a great way to start feeling the magic of Christmas before everyone starts celebrating.
