Alastair Sim plays the title character in what was considered for decades to be maybe the definitive version of the Dickens story, though I was a little thrown by the way the movie makes up a bunch of extra bits of Scrooge’s origin story for no discernible reason.
My favorite Christmas movie, bar none, featuring Michael Caine as Scrooge and Gonzo the Great as Charles Dickens.
The ultimate feel-good movie, or harrowing exercise in existential angst? Possibly both.
Some people have called this the “perfect action movie,” and it launched the careers of Bruce Willis and Alan Rickman. But is it a Christmas movie?
I unreservedly love this nutso sci-fi mashup, despite it being a routine entry on “worst movies of all time” lists.
Seriously one of the better horror movies I’ve seen, surrounded by jingle bells and tinsel.
Great Irving Berlin songs, great performances, and a plot you shouldn’t think about too hard.
A Christmas Carol for the 1980s, extremely cynical and with more people getting hit in the face with toasters.
A holiday classic about whether a crazy guy who thinks he’s Santa is actually Santa, made a time when studios insisted Christmas movies wouldn’t sell.
I have many questions about this animated musical and its story about oppressed Jewish immigrant mice.
