Disney's A Christmas Carol Reviews
I think Jim Carrey gives off a good performance, pretending to be an old man, but you can notice it's him when he acts more goofy in certain parks. There are a few parts in Carrey's performance I think could've used a re-shoot, like at the doorknob scene when Marley's face appears on it and scares Scrooge, but that's just a nitpick.
I know about the controversy surrounding motion capture and I can see why, but in my opinion, it kind of works for this film. Motion capture is a style of animation in it's own right and every style needs to match the tone of the film and in my opinion motion capture best fits films with a dark and realistic feel to it, so motion capture was a good choice. Also I know Zemeckis only wanted to use motion capture because he likes to exploit cutting edge technology, but like Tintin, I think they wanted to show what the character from the book would look like if they were real people and they do pretty decent job on the designs, especially for Scrooge himself. It's definitely a good update from the creepy uncanny looks from The Polar Express. My one problem with it is that some times the characters move like a cartoon which does sometimes brake the tone.
So overall, it has great visuals, great performances and has a heart warming feel to it. It may be too dark for children, but that doesn't make a bad film.
La dirección artística es increíble, que aunque trata de un tema retocado en las películas navideñas, funciona bastante bien, y es un film ideal para estas épocas. Finalmente destacar la impecable dirección de Robert Zemeckis.
When we see what is not use for us dead we take what they no longer can use. When we found use in old partners to find new uses for others we use more for less. When all around us those who have less make use of what is around to get around. When we consider such holidays as useless we see we have no time for it or those who value the useless. When we can make use of those other feel need help to use other places well suited for those in lower place to be, even lower. When others could use such holidays to spend time with loved ones we use it to be alone and see no profit. When it's time others see how useless they are when they see their life on all sides to know what life they value and judge whether they are useless or not. When others more like us spent making use of their life for profit they never got to use to know what use is living with profit when we die serving it.
When we see others who serve to use their power to make us see, we go back in time in places we used to live past Christmas'. When what has no use for us sends us away. When those who could care less about one's use we see we fetch back when some holidays are means to be used to be with one another. When we see what past Christmas' we were introduced to we see why others have no use for love, when we used to be in love. When we see what such worlds we invest in make use of such things as love for profit but others much more to see there is no use convincing others what they don't see or have use for. When what we chose profit over love to use such moments in our past to shed light to our present.
When we see such perspectives we use to see all walks of life in what people like us use for getting more profit do to such places. When what others see meager and little others in poor places make use to keep such holidays together. When what others use what no use their abilities may bring but awareness for those in need when there is little use they can do being in such places but other places to know they can be of use if those open their eyes. When what we see others show are the reason why we have meager use of such holidays we see others are used to such lifestyles. When we see there is no use presents not having a present when we are heading for death. When the present is meant to used to enrich us from the heart not our pockets to know one is dieing and others are living. When we see what presented day things are growing into when it's the only use in such lower places to grow into and become. When the present can use a person like us to give new life to little children to grow longer without ignorance and want.
When we see what others can see to use when it's another black heartless soul when we are death. When others named use of us when we are dead when they go through our pockets & accounts to know what we are worth. When we see what others can't be used to see that begging for second chances when it's too late we see how such realizations we don't see coming we do now to wake up from what time we misused for greed and use to give. When we see death symbolizes the dead end in our life that life has no use for when no one has real use for death when we are too busy using up time to live.
When we see we make use for such emotions when there is no use in having them when you can't enjoy it. When we see we make use of our wealth to give, we make use for family to bond, and make use of life to give life when we are in places to make use of our status to transform everyone and everything around us to bring light to where there is darkness, to make others see where better use can go to.
Much better movies out there to watch each year at Christmas!
