Last night after what seemed like a never ending day of classes, in what seems to be a never ending week of classes, Ryan and I settled in to watch "A Christmas Carol" that Disney released last winter.
Neither one of us had seen it so we were both a little excited to see what was in store. Sadly I must say that it was not a great movie or one that I would watch again; however Ryan has managed to convince me that it was not a horrible movie either.
I am sure that the movie was amazing in 3D; however when watching it normally it looked over animated to the point that the people were creepy and looked too human. I feel like they went above and beyond with their new tricks for 3D however over looked other things that were important. Jim Carrey has never been my favorite and I find it odd that they had him do this part as the jokes his character made didn't really seem to fit.
I find it odd that Disney would almost make a Christmas movie that goes on so many random tangent that it almost caused me to miss the whole point. I find it strange that they made the characters so creepy and too things so far that I found myself wondering if I hadn't miss something and it was all just a joke. This by all means is not a movie for kids or really anyone who is looking to get in the Christmas mood.
Over all I am shocked that Disney didn't do a better job because there are so many things they could of done with this story. To me it has always been a sad story with a happy ending, a cute story with a great lesson but I didn't get any of that last night.
Ahh at least tonight I know I won't be let down as we watch a Charlie Brown Christmas! It has always been my favorite and always takes me back to my childhood and I can't help but think of all the Charlie Brown things my grandmother always had at Christmas time.
