    Just found out the rating on Rotten Tomatoes is down to 97% which isn't bad, but it's only because some idiot's review on his blog was counted in... :/

    When I first saw the trailer for it, when Jill turned around, someone sitting near me said, "Ha ha! It's him! Oh man!"

    So, Rick Perry could become President, is what I'm saying.

    As much as I like Blogs and think they have a purpose, they're often given way too much credit, lol.

    Arthur Christmas did get good reviews. It just has bad timing.

    I'd probably have to see that overblown excuse of a Christmas special to get a real feeling for what it is, but the plot synopsis, trailers, and overall character looks just give me a total ick. From what I understand the movie's about the clumsy brother who's not as valuable as the others but somehow manages to save the day by "thinking differently." Isn't that... wasn't there some REALLY famous Christmas special that was sort of like that? I remember it being on every single year and referenced in everything... an outcast saving the day... hmmm... it's like there was this special where one of Santa's reindeer had some weird affliction that made everyone hate him, and at one point said affliction is extremely useful in saving the day. I swear there was some kinda reference to that in Nightmare Before Christmas... I just can't put my finger on it.

    But seriously... it's like they took their version of Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs and cross bred it with Prep and Landing. Even if this movie came out a year before or after and was in no direct competition with the Muppets I'd say ick. There's NO shortage of Christmas specials that are good. They just lost the know how to make GOOD ones.

    The Prep and Landing comparison is pretty much how I felt about it too. THough interstingly it has gotten good reviews (and more merchandise than Muppets at Toys R US GRRRRR). Even with the good reviews it deosn't interest me. I think a lot of people see the preview and feel it is derivitive of other material. If it is different/better they needed to market it better. I certainly wouldn't have opened it against Muppets... a weekend earlier or later would have been wise. I have been hearing kids at our school go on and on about the Muppets (even in the upper grades where I teach) haven't hear too much about Arthur Christmas.

    Heck that's as high as many Pixar films get. Anything fresh on that website should be taken as a compliment.
