I have been an avid fan of the classic tale of 'A Christmas Carol' for a long time. However, no adaptation was good enough. I found, the most enjoyable adaptation to funnily be 'A Muppet's Christmas Carol' but the tale was then forever to be known as a children's tale. I have never saw this story as a children's tale, instead, it is very much for adults.
I was a bit sceptical before seeing this film. I love Robert Zemeckis, I loved Beowulf, and Jim Carrey is awesome. But, it just didn't look right. However, after seeing the film for the first time, in 3D, I was blown away. Around the same time, Avatar was on it's way, and things were looking bright for the 3D in that film. But 'A Christmas Carol' was the first time that it turned me over to the 3D side.
I'll soon be purchasing a 3D TV, so I will most definitely be purchasing this wonderful film, which includes the Blu-Ray, the 3D Blu-Ray and a Digital Copy!
:D Cannot wait!
