I agree. Jim Carey should stick to Leap Year’s Day.

In fairness to Robert Zemeckis, his work in motion-capture animation has gotten much better. Everything in Flight looked completely realistic.

Question for American viewers like myself . . . did I miss Alistar Sim as Scrooge? I was looking through Time Warner, and it seemed like every version of A Christmas Carol is running EXCEPT for that one. BTW, turns out there’s 200 or more versions of that tale ever made. Found that out today.

Merry Christmas, and Happy Whatever The Heck You Celebrate In Canada, MGK!!! :P

Actually, I’m fond of the George C Scott version of A Christmas Carol.

Also, agree 100% on your views of A Knight’s Tale. Such an awesome fun movie.

It aired on AMC, Jason (along with at least two other versions). If that was the only channel showing it, then you missed it this year; they’re doing cowboy flicks for Christmas and then presumably moving on to whatever they’d normally be showing.

Thanks, Candlejack. Maybe Allistar can shamble around and try to eat Carl on TWD. I’m not that upset, but that’s my mother’s fave version.

Christmas night also brings the last episode of Leverage.

Unfortunately, the version of the Sim Christmas Carol that was on CBC was fucking colourized, which is never a pleasing thing to find when you change channels expecting to see a beloved classic.
Fortunately, CTV showed the black & white one (It must have been after Wonderful life, but I watched it at 8 so I must have watched the Toronto feed, as my TV package now has that “other city’s stations” thing).

Just when you think It’s A Wonderful Life might go off in the right direction and have George Bailey throw himself off a bridge, all of a sudden Capra has to turn the whole thing into a “gosh golly with ten tons of sugar” happyfest.
