Just seen that this sad news broke a couple of hours ago now. I personally love him as Daddy Warbucks in Annie as well as Ed in Erin Brockovich! He was 82 years old and had starred in some very big films.
Rest in Peace ❤
I just wanted to take the time to wish all of the followers and supporters of Let’s Go To The Movies a very Merry Christmas!
I hope you all have a truly fantastic day spending time with all of the people who mean something to you and raising a glass to those who are no longer here.
What better way to start off this Christmas Day than Michael Caine singing with the Muppet’s as Scrooge from The Muppet Christmas Carol?
All the best, Caz

A lot of blog posts and talk is currently surrounding Christmas films, so I decided that I would think about what makes a good Christmas film. Especially as it’s not that we get new quality Christmas films every year it always seems to be older now classic films which everyone makes sure they watch at some point in the build up to Christmas. These must have key elements which make everyone love them and want to watch them year in year out. I think that does help make these films extra special, as long as you get the formula right recent times have been more Christmas Turkeys rather than classics.
Charles Dicken’s classic tale of Ebenezer Scrooge is given an animated Disney look, and if you so wish 3D (2D is still available). I just had to go for the 3D option in an attempt to try to make my mind up whether I like it better or not. Scrooge is taken on a journey of redemption by three ghosts, the ghost of Christmas past, present and future. Going back looking at his life as it was, how it is today and how it will not be for very much longer. But can he be convinced to change his ways?
Well I am off to see A Christmas Carol in 3D today, so decided to post some pictures from the film. Expect to see my review at least by tonight!
