"His wealth is quite useless to him, really. He doesn't do any good with it; he doesn't even make HIMSELF comfortable with it."

Literally billions of filmic adaptations of Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol have been produced over the decades. Of these adaptations, most critics consider 1951's Scrooge (with Alastair Sim) to be the best and most definitive. However, in this reviewer'... read more

This is probably my favorite version of 'A Christmas Carol' (besides 'Scrooged' but that's a different story). It has a great Scrooge (George C. Scott) and one of the better Ghost of Christmas Present depictions. If you're going to start somewhere with this story, start here.

" HBO Now- 1hr. 41min. First Viewing Charles Dickens' classic has been done to death. From a storytelling standpoint, there's little that can be done to jazz it up. So, therefore, any adaptation is going to be judged, primarily, for it's soul. Sure, storytelling is a necessity, but any Carol is going to be judged by the emotion that it elicits; how much it makes the viewer feel. In this regard, 1984's A Christmas Carol is a mixed bag. While the film itself feels too rudimentary, too through-the-m"
