A wonderful adventure with great Christmas spirit.

For decades, films based upon the magical and enchanting tradition of Christmas have melted the hearts and inspired a countless number of people from the likes of hilarious disaster-comedies, live-action family heart-warmers and visually stunning animations. However, making critically and financially successful Christmas films within this current generation is often a rather difficult task due to ... read more

"A child's been missed!"

Making a genuinely good, original Christmas movie is a difficult task in this day and age. Added to this, after Fred Claus, The Polar Express, The Santa Clause and other such motion pictures, it seems impossible to put another fresh spin on Santa Claus and his North Pole universe. Enter the British animation studio Aardman (best known for Wallace and Gromit)... read more

Review of Arthur Christmas

Some films are destined to be classics. And while Arthur Christmas is far from a masterpiece, it certainly feels like a movie that could quickly become a Christmas tradition among many families. It's funny, it's cute, it's warm. What more could you ask of a Christmas film?

Aardman presents a much more modern version of Santa Claus then what audiences are used to. A small army of el... read more

An Aardman production for Sony Pictures Animation, at last reveals the incredible, never-before seen answer to every child's question: 'So how does Santa deliver all those presents in one night?' The answer: Santa's exhilarating, ultra-high-tech operation hidden beneath the North Pole. But at the heart of the film is a story with the ingredients of a Christmas classic - a family in a state of comic dysfunction and an unlikely hero, Arthur, with an urgent mission that must be completed before Christmas morning dawns.

Reel Life #2: Christmas Edition (12 movies items)

" I saw this one probably a week or so after it had come out. I think it came out the same weekend as the fourth Twilight and The Muppets reboot. I saw Twilight because my sibling and mother wanted to see it, so I just sort of tagged along. The ratings were strong so I was excited, and I wasn't disappointed. It's become one that I watch every Christmas. Wish I had more, but this is one of the duller ones. Sorry."

Exclusive's 2015 Movie Diary (150 movies items)

"18.12.2015 "There is a Child without a present!" "Arthur! Christmas is not a time for emotion!" It's getting close to Christmas again so i guess it's time to actually start watching some Christmas movies again and try to get in the spirit of the holiday. This is one of those Christmas movies i wanted to watch back when it came out, but never really got around to until now. That is a shame because i really liked it a lot. It had fun characters and a nice story that really did give me a bit of t"

Complicated but heartwarming plot

“'Arthur Christmas' has a complicated but heartwarming plot. The animation (another CGI film by Aardman after 'Flushed Away') and the score are perfect. The animation looks quite good, the score is absolutely beautiful. The plot seems sort of complicated but it's heartwarming and entertaining for kids!” read more
