  • The Man Who Invented Christmas - New movie about the writing of A Christmas Carol

    I just found out about this yesterday.

    It's based on a book of the same name, but the book is just a straightforward work of history. (I've read the book, enjoyed it and recommend it.)

    With this film, clearly they're going for something much more imaginative than just a period piece. It seems to be infused with a lot of Christmas magic!

      It does look like it's going to be a good movie. Really looking forward to this one!

      And yes, I do remember you. We talked about it a little while back. I can't remember how I figured out it was you, but I did. I think it was something you said where it was basically just a copy and paste from what you posted over there.

      BTW, there aren't nearly as many people posting there, but there's a new forum that's popped up to try to fill in the gap now that IMDB has (stupidly) closed down their forums. www.moviechat.org

          Bumping this thread because I managed to watch this movie online. It was very well done. You learn a lot about Dickens' life and career around this time and some interesting history aboud the book itself, including the original ending.

            I thought it was a very good movie, and my wife loves it. It will become part of our regular Christmas movie rotation.

              My wife and I watched the movie yesterday and liked it. I think it helps to know the book so you won't miss all the references to phrase and character. Definitely adding the movie to our Christmas viewing list!
