Last weekend, Tina, Gabby and I went to Eastwood City to watch the movie adaptation of Charles Dickens’ classic novel, A Christmas Carol. 

While I was a bit sleepy during the entire movie, although not implying that it’s boring or does not interest me; our 5-year-old son, Gabby enjoyed it to the fullest!  😀 Surprisingly, he understood the story and somehow felt what the movie is all about. 

Shame on me I haven’t read its book (my weak defense : it wasn’t required during our days in school so i was busy reading others, LOL) but I can’t deny that its animated version was so digitally enhanced surpassing my expectations to the point of being so rapidly told that one will be left out by the pacing in a blink!

What made me see the movie with my family other than the simple reason that Gabby wanted to watch it, was because of the voices behind its characters – Jim Carey, Gary Oldman, Robin Wright Penn etc.

It’s a movie about how an old man’s life became more meaningful after being haunted by several Christmas apparitions. 

A Christmas Carol is perfect for the holiday; go see it yourself. 😀

Meanwhile, I enjoyed watching trailers of  upcoming movies due 2010 more …

Gabby wants to watch this “SQUEAKQUEL” as soon as it’s released…

  1. I suggest you watch The Lovely Bones. I am not sure when it will be shown here but it’s a great movie. It’s a suspense so I guess Gabby wouldn’t like that. 🙂

  2. I saw New Moon last night (okay lang). Im looking forward to watch Alice in Wonderland and Avatar before the year ends. And for next year, Dear John by Sparks and Alice in Wonderland. Ive read the book and its one of my fave Christmas books hope to see the movie too.

    1. dear john is a mushy movie that i think my mom in uae would love to watch. tina and i prefer action-adventure type of movies; she likes horror flicks, would you believe?! 😀
      i think alice in wonderland is a fun movies for families! 😀

  3. Saw “Blind Side” but if you ever have the chance check out this french movie subtitled in English called “The Diving Bell and The Butterfly” Happy Holidays to you and your family.
