Movie Reviews

Most complete histor
Jeffery D. Elliott | Foley, AL USA | 12/12/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is by far the best history of Santa Claus I have seen (and I've searched them all out). A respectful treatment of the religious tradition of St. Nick and a very extensive history to the modern legend of Santa Claus. I can not recommend this video more highly"
Not for younger children
S. Tuten | New Hampshire | 12/30/2008
(2 out of 5 stars)

"For the most part, I thought this was a very interesting DVD. However, I let my 3 and 7 year old children watch it with me. Near the beginning, there was a graphic cartoon image of three little boys who had mutilated and stuffed into a pickle barrel. St. Nicholas brought them back to life and was able to reassemble their bodies. I really didn't think it was necessary to have such a violent visual image. Also, near the end of the movie, there was a brief segment about how Santa is not always seen as a good guy---there was a movie clip of some murderer in a Santa suit chasing a person with an ax. Again, was that really necessary? There should definitely be a warning at the beginning of the show telling parents that there are some images which might not be suitable for young kids. Or, here's a crazy thought, just delete the violent scenes! It's a Christmas DVD which the whole family should be able to watch."
Biography Santa Claus
Catherine A. Lehosky | Overseas | 11/28/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

"My children were coming to the age where they did not believe in Santa as a live person who comes down your chimmeney. They had a lot of questions about how he got to be the icon that he is and what exactly he had to do with Christmas a very religious holiday. This explains alot of who the real Santa Claus was and how he got to be so commercialized. Good for some children and all adults."
Educational fun St Nick
Mrs. Felicity M. Stanton | Tasmania Australia | 12/11/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"A delightful chronological review of the Santa Claus figure from pre-Christian through St Nicholas and most fascinating, just how the standardized modern Santa evolved to his present form. Great fun and does not destroy the Santa myth since the spirit of Santa is the same whatever he looks like.
