Movies in Review: “Arthur Christmas”

This movie still has me smiling from ear to ear. It made me believe in the idea of Santa Clause again, and the spirit of Christmas. This film was wonderfully executed in my opinion. It mixes the Santa we all know with his sleigh and Reindeer, but has upgraded him to the 21st century technology driven world. It is fun to see how the advancement of technology has even reached the North Pole…lol.

This movie is not short of laughs as we watch Santa and his elf militia in action. It is hilarious to see how technology has made Santa super lazy…hint hint. Arthur is the focal point in the story as he believes in the spirit of Santa and Christmas, and no child should be left without a gift from Santa under the tree. We know how the story goes, but this adventure is still well worth seeing. My favorite character was Bryony, the elf from the gift wrap dept. She is a hoot as she continuously raves at how she can wrap a gift in under 5secs using only 3pcs of tape…lol…She was a doll.

In my opinion you have to take the kids to see this. Its fun, funny, there is plenty of movement and bright colors so the kids won’t get bored. The story is in their lane, and won’t be over their heads. If you don’t have any little ones take yourself to a matinée. If nothing else, this movie will definitely put a smile on your face :)…A!

I am creative by nature, and analytical by design. My escape from the riff raff of everyday life is a great movie. I do not title myself as a movie critic. I am a part of the viewing audience simple and plain. I started this blog to give a real life review of films, as an avid movie goer. Movies are expensive, and not always worth the money. I hope my reviews help you in your descision.

  1. I am currently finishing up my review for this film. I didn’t like it AS much as you, but, yes, it did leave a smile on my face! I was glad for that!

    • I liked this movie because I left the theatre with feeling happy. That movie put a genuine smile on my face. It was super cute the way that they brought the North Pole up to speed to the 21st century…the humor in that alone had me entertained. It wasn’t the same old Christmas story, but still had the same premise behind it. I loved it…and Im smiling abt the movie even as I write this reply…lol. I appreciate your comments and views!
