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?
"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!
