ARTHUR CHRISTMAS - 3D Blu-ray review

moviemet.com
7 March 2014
  • Summary: Ultimately, how much you enjoy “Arthur Christmas” will come down to how you react to the military aspect, and whether you think the razzle-dazzle animation is enough to compensate for a plot that can feel a little too familiar.

Arthur Christmas (Blu-ray)

DVD Verdict
9 November 2012
  • Excerpt: Christmas movies are a dime a dozen. Most are anywhere from terrible ( Fred Claus ) to mediocre ( Home Alone ) to absolutely batnuts bizarre ( Santa Claus Conquers the Martians ). Only a few can be considered true classics: A Christmas Carol , It's a Wonderful Life , A Christmas Story . It's the rare holiday movie that touches both your funny bone and your heartstrings. Does Arthur Christmas measure up? Let's find out.

High-Def Digest

  • Conclusion: I love this little movie. It feels destined to become a Christmas classic. One that kids will want to watch year after year, and parents won't mind because there are just as many jokes in there for them as there are for the little ones. 'Arthur Christmas' provides a whole lot of clever fun in a genre where movies routinely aim for lowest common denominator kind of stuff.

Cinema Blend
23 November 2011
  • Excerpt: It's hard to make a good and original Christmas movie, but damn near impossible to put a fresh spin on Santa, his elves or the North Pole. We live in a world in which Vince Vaughn played Santa's slacker brother and there were two sequels to The Santa Clause ; you'd think everything hip or new to be said about Santa was already out there.

AV Club

  • Excerpt: Aardman Animation’s appeal has long been rooted in its homemade craftsmanship. In the studio’s classic Wallace & Gromit shorts, it’s possible to see the thumbprints of the animators who lovingly transform lumps of clay into twee perfection. So when the studio started to incorporate computer animation in the past decade, fans grew concerned.
