Robert Zemeckis directs this animated version of the Yuletide classic A Christmas Story. The story centers on Ebenezer Scrooge (Jim Carrey), a penny-pinching miser who cares nothing for the people around him, least of all his hopelessly downtrodden employee Bob Cratchit (Gary Oldman) and infectiously optimistic nephew, Fred (Colin Firth). On Christmas Eve, after a frightening encounter with the ghost of his deceased business partner, Jacob Marley, Scrooge is visited by three spirits -- the ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Yet to Come -- who take him on an eye-opening journey to expose the truths he is reluctant to face.~Perry Seibert

I purchased this around the holidays to get the festive vibes going, and this movie never disappoints! Jim Carrey's Scrooge is awesome! The way this movie brings the Dicken's story to life is solid. There is a dark tone to some of the parts, which fits the mood of the story that some other renditions just don't get right.
Solid quality on BluRay as well. I have a Panasonic UB820 player with my LG OLED display, and the upscaling makes this movie pop.
Wow! What an amazing job done on the CG, the dialog, the very creative camera angles, meticulous attention to detail, and bravo to Jim Carey, who took on multiple character voices in this film! While a few parts are silly and a bit irritating, it is overall a masterpiece of genius artwork, emotion,
and technical workmanship! Love it!
A really good rendition of a Charles Dickens classic. Nice animation and a real "new" classic to own for the younger crowd to keep a tradition alive. A good movie to add to the holiday queue if you have a Christmas movie watch list for a family tradition. Great library addition.
