A Christmas Carol 3D

Whatever you may think of this latest adaptation of Dicken's Classic novel  from Robert Zemekis, there is no doubt that both the CGI animation and 3D are stunning. I first saw this in the cinema on its release and seeing it now on Blu-ray 3D, a few years later, I am reminded of how full-on the 3D is. Overall, I found the film to be excellent and the final 15 minutes, very moving. The juxtaposition between death and the desire for life is very powerful one. The one criticism I have is that there are one two many "fairground ride" moments and the miniaturization sequence seemed out of place. It's definitely not for the young ones either, as the film is rife with dark, spooky, death related imagery that might scare those of a tender age.
