5.0 out of 5 stars A Masterpiece, November 20, 2010
This review is from: Disney's A Christmas Carol (DVD)
Movie snobs may laugh...but I think this movie is an absolute masterpiece of cinema. Never has there been such foreboding in ANY of the previous versions...the Ghost Of Christmas Yet To Come is the most stunning visualization ever. Such powerful use of...silence.

Hauntingly beautiful, the BlueRay version is something you will be playing generations from now. I saw it in the theatre in 3D and was blown away, so I was a little wary that it may not have the same impact on the small screen...I was wrong.

I used to count the 1984 (made for T.V.) George C. Scott version as my favorite(with the 1951 Alistair Sim version a VERY close second)...I now have a new favorite!

Best short review to date! Belongs in the "spotlight" (I say). Just had to say "Kudos," to a kindred spirit (my wife and I just last night agreed that our 'second favorite' after this new version, was the "George C. Scott" -- especially that moment when the two canvasers for the poor come knocking and Scott answers their questions more powerfully than any (real) actor playing Scrooge, before or since:

"So, what can we put you down for?

"Nothing."

"You wish to remain anonymous?"

"I wish to be left alone." [and]

"Are there no work houses? [and]

"Well, they had best die -- and decrease the surplus population."

Like you, B. Rogers, I'm convinced "the Blu-Ray version . . . will be playing generations from now." Write more reviews!
