The Muppet Christmas Carol

Director: Brian Henson
Year: 1992
Stars: Michael Caine, Kermit, Miss Piggy (look, they're Muppets, so real-ish-, OK?)

Now I know it must be Christmas - The Muppet Christmas Carol is on TV - and it's snowing outside (yes, really)! How much more Christmassy can you get?

You must know the story by now - even if only from reading my blog, which already has reviews of at least three different variations on Scrooge. If you don't, go and get yourselves an education.

One of the best adaptations of a Christmas Carol, even with muppets involved. It's cheery, heart warming, cynical in all the best places, and really evokes that feeling of Christmas. God Bless Us, Every One!

Rating: 5 out of 5

PS Apologies for the large amount of posts that have been appearing over the past few days - I realised with the vast amount of films I've been watching and failing to blog about instantly, I needed to play catch-up a bit before Christmas!

About Me

My photo
I live in Bristol with my husband Dan (who I married in July 2007), my son Joe (born 2012) and daughter Jess (born 2015). I work at UWE (the University of the West of England) in Bristol as a Research and Open Access Librarian. I'm orginally from Exeter, so moving back to Bristol is a bit like coming home - especially as I studied for my undergraduate degree here (also at UWE). I love travelling and movies, although I get to do a lot less of both since the birth of our children. Although we have still managed to fit in holidays to the Isles of Scilly, Chamonix and a summer in California since Joe was born.
