Movie Reviews

Great for Rankin-Bass fans
Randall G. Cyrenne | Saskatoon, Saskatchewan Canada | 12/19/2004
(3 out of 5 stars)

"I have more to say about it at, but here's the short of it: It does run a little long, and could have certainly used some editing, but this movie is fun and rates well against the R-B TV specials. Anyone who thinks this movie is too confusing could not have been paying much attention, and I also would not say it's scary--- my 3-year old loved it (of course, it will depend on your own child's "scare threshhold"). Personally, I enjoyed the "origin" of Rudolph, found the new mythology of the characters charming, and thought Winterbolt to be a great villain. The movie gets a 7/10 from me, although the video quality could have been a little better on the disc. The lack of extras was disappointing too."
Audio not in sync!

"I just purchased this DVD and I must say I am greatly disappointed!
The audio is not in sync!!!
The audio is ahead of the video by 1 to 2 seconds.
I just can't imagine how this could happen with a Warner Brothers release.
Being a huge Rankin and Bass fan this was an utter let down.

I hope this error is corrected and Warner Brothers offers some sort of exchange.
Nice to see a forgotten favorite...

"I have always wanted to find this item on DVD... and this past x-mas I did! As a prior review stated, the sound is a bit out of sync, but... I am a fan of Ethel Merman, and it is a kick to hear her sing about 4 to 5 songs... the price was nice, and it brings back good memories. It's just fun stuff, and new kids should be introduced to items which are truly classics, without all the high tech stuff!!"
Rankin-bass all stars reunited

"If you are a Rankin-Bass fanatic like me, you will want to add this video to your holiday viewing schedule. While it's not perfect, the enjoyable parts outweigh the flaws. It's wonderful to see old friends like Rudolph, Frosty, Crystal (along with their two snow children), Big Ben, Jack Frost, and others all reunited. Winterbolt and his crew are without a doub the most scary of all Christmas villains and lend a chilling element to the story that adults will love, but which may be a bit too much for children. Though I do agree that it would have been even better to see Clarice, Hermie, and Yukon again too, the characters who DO appear are wonderful. I think you'll enjoy this one."
