I love "The Christmas Carol" with Patrick Stewart...

I intend to get a DVD of it this year if I can find it.

I also like catching the old cartoons..."Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer", "Frosty the Snowman" and all those kids shows from when I was a kid...

I like "A Christmas Carol" too Jess. But my favorite version is the one with George C. Scott as Scrooge. I think it was made in the late 1980s.

Great flick for Halloween.  ;D When I finally saw it, however  ::)  I liked it and I didn't like it. I liked it, but I thought, either they should have gone with the business of Crane being a "modern," "scientific" detective--and had it turn out to be nothing supernatural--or else they should have dropped the opening bit about modern science and just made it all supernatural. The mixture of the two left me feeling kind of--I don't know--eh?  :-\

It was steampunk.  I really like it.

They did pursue the scientific/gumshoe line, until he found out it was really supernatural.  Kinda X-files like.

I also like how Depp's hero Crane is basically a coward.  ;D

Actually, David, it goes all the way back to 1984.

But, thank heavens, I've finally found someone else who likes that version!  :laugh:

I love that version! What a great cast: George C. Scott, David Warner, Roger Rees, Susannah York, Edward Woodward. ...  :D

Eh, I didn't like George's version.  He only had one expression - stern and hard - so his conversion was less convincing IMO.  And OMG, I was overjoyed Patrick Stewart made a version, then the producers committed the unpardonable sin of making a Christmas Carol boring.  I got bored and walked off after a while.  I NEVER do that with the older 1940's versions.  I was SO disappointed.

My favorite is, and will always be, "It's a Wonderful Life", with Jimmy Stewart.
