Christmas Movie Nights: Arthur Christmas


This Christmas season we are looking for feel-good Christmas Movie Classics to add to our must-watch list and help get us in the festive spirit. We'll also share ideas for seasonal snacks and decorating while giving you the chance to get a month of FREE DVDs this Christmas season, courtesy of our sponsor, Fatso (see below for details).

Our Super-Cool-Fab Review Team...



Our crack team of expert Movie Reviewers are this week reviewing Arthur Christmas, a cool newish animated Christmas movie from 2011.

One of my favourite things to do each Christmas is watch my favourite feel-good Christmas films... and I am always glad to add  new additions to my Christmas must-watch list.

This year I have added a whole bunch of Christmas classics to my Fatso Queue, including Miracle on 34th Street and It's a Wonderful Life, which I've never been able to find in a video store. I am looking forward to getting in the Festive mood watching a whole new list of favourites, and Arthur Christmas is now firmly in place amongst my Christmas faves.

Movie Plot Summary: As soon as Arthur Christmas starts you know it's going to be good. Within the first few minutes my hard-to-impress hubby was chuckling and saying, Ha, this is good! Arthur is the family nerd, which is rather awkward when your Dad is Father Christmas. It's almost time for Santa to retire and pass the reins onto the next generation, and big brother Chris looks like he is the likely successor; he already has Christmas running like a well oiled machine, but when one child's gift goes undelivered it becomes about what matters most: recognition, fame, status... or doing what it takes to make sure that one child is not disappointed on Christmas morning. With loads of action, whit and irony this is one the grownups will enjoy and the little kids will love too.

Put Arthur Christmas on your Christmas Movie Watchlist... (or even better, try it for free from from  Fatso, along with a bunch of other Christmas Classics).



Here's what our experts have to say about Arthur Christmas...


Dash. B. Cool: "It was alright, it had some funny bits in it. It's not my favourite movie ever, but it's good for Christmas. I liked the elf Ninjas and the old grumpy Santa."

Dash scores this movie's "coolness" as: 

Foxy Fab: "The first time I watched it it was really good, but when I heard that we were watching it again I thought Oh No. But actually it was really cool. And some bits were really funny. I really think I want to give it all five stars because it was really great and it was on my mum's birthday party day so that made it more special-er."

Foxy rates this movie's "fabness" as: 


Super Scrag: "The start was a bit boring but the end was cool. I liked it cos it was a Christmas movie and I like Christmas. The funniest person in the movie was Arthur, and Santa (the really old one), and Arthur was the nicest one too."

SuperScrag scores this movie's "super-ness" as:

The best thing to do while watching a Christmas Classic, is to munch on something seasonally delicious...
