Arthur Christmas

Arthur Christmas
  • 2011
  • UK / US
  • 1h 37min
  • U
  • Directed by: Sarah Smith
  • Written by: Peter Baynham, Sarah Smith
  • Cast: James McAvoy, Hugh Laurie, Bill Nighy, Jim Broadbent, Imelda Staunton, Ashley Jensen, Ramona Marquez

Arthur Christmas (McAvoy) is the overlooked star of the Santa team, but when it looks like a small girl's present may not get delivered, he enlists the help of his curmudgeonly grandfather (Nighy). With characters boringly reflecting different degrees of niceness, this contrived family feud lacks the wit that made Aardman's name.

T’Challa (Boseman) ascends to the throne of Wakanda after his father is killed, and he and former lover Nakia (Nyong’o) must avenge the theft of an artefact made of Wakanda’s precious vibranium. Ground-breaking superhero story with awesome action; Boseman is agile and impressive, but the female contingent is superb and sombre themes sit comfortably alongside comedy.

How the Grinch Stole Christmas

How the Grinch Stole Christmas
  • 2000
  • US
  • 1h 44min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Ron Howard
  • Cast: Jim Carrey, Jeffrey Tambor, Christine Baranski, Bill Irwin, Molly Shannon

Surprisingly, The Grinch is the first live action feature to be adapted from the work of the world's best-selling children's author, Dr Seuss. And beneath sfx magician Rick Baker's green costume Carrey, – the world's highest paid comedian – wreaks glorious havoc on his cloying sweet neighbours, the Whovians of Who-ville. Howard lays the book's moral – Christmas is about family not presents and the sickly sweet sentiment on pretty thick. Toy Story 2 got the cross generational appeal right – golly gosh Howard's Grinch hasn't. Carrey's great though.
