Movie Reviews

Wonderful Feature
maxwellryan | Toledo, Ohio | 06/18/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I happened to see this on television a few years back (and taped it at the same time). I was suprised to discover a new, wonderfully humorous Christmas program done in the "Jimmy Neutron-style" of computer animation (same writer and producer as Jimmy). A snowman decides that he wants to be like Santa and hilarity ensues. The program features a fantastic voice-cameo of Ben Stein as a North Pole tour guide. The narration is provided by the deep-voiced announcer who is the voice behind many movie trailers. There are many humorous touches throughout the show including allusions to Star Wars and more. The story concludes with a positive moral that wraps it up beautifully. This deserves a place in your classics of Christmas collection - mine sits right next to Rudolph!"
A wonderful movie! But the DVD could've had more.

"I saw this flick the first time in 3D in the IMAX theater. Let me tell you, the graphics were no less than stunning. The movie starts out very sweet and cute... but soon shifts-gears to reveal a hysterical story with some great satire... some laugh-out-loud one-liners and clever references to other movies! With voices by Jonathan Winters, Victoria Jackson and Ben Stein, this is a fun movie for all ages. At the end of the movie, the "outtakes" are very fun too.

I was so excited to hear that this was coming out on DVD, I had to purchase it immediately. Though the movie was still just as fun, I must admit I was a bit disappointed with the 3D effects on a television. Part of the problem is they use the old-fashioned red-blue 3D glasses, which really detract from the rich colors of the film... making it seem almost black & white. (In the IMAX theater, they used the gray 3D glasses which allowed much better effect and kept the colors more vivid.)

I was also disappointed to see no real Extra features... no director's commentary or behind-the-scenes or anything. All they had were a couple of simple interactive games, which became tiresome after about 20 seconds.

In summary... a great flick... much better if you can see it in 3D Imax splendor... but still a fun movie!"
Hard to review this DVD

"It is very difficult to review this DVD and give it correct stars. If you consider the 2D version, it would get 4 or 5 stars as the animation and colors are wonderful with a very humorous story. BUT the 3D version is terrible. The 3D is about the worst ever, it never really produces a 3D effect and the red/blue glasses dull and changes to colors making it almost a black and white film. None of the 3D effects really work. The best of them is the falling snow. Often the viewer sees the two images ruining the whole effect and making it impossible to concentrate on the story.

A recommendation is to forget the 3D version and just play the 2D version. Both are on the disk.

When 3D was first introduced, people complained that they got headaches from the 3D. This DVD definitely falls into that catagory. Perhaps in Imax with the gray poloroid glasses, the effects work. NOT on this disk."
Should be Santa vs. the producers
And that would mean what to me? | NJ | 09/22/2004

"I unfortunately wound up seeing this Christmas Misgiving on its original airing. I have always been a fan of any Christmas special since Rudolph hit the air way back when. Each holiday season I hope for something to come along that has the potential to become the "New Rudolph". This is so far away from that you would need the Hubble Space scope in order to see how close it came. The imaging is excellent and has been executed with great expertise. Regrettably the story makes Santa vs. the Martins look like an Oscar contender. Such a waste trying to make it more desirable by hoking it up with 3D gimmickry. You can't improve on failure. After it aired on TV I didn't see it return in later years on regular TV. I didn't miss it then and was hoping to extend the pleasure indefinitely. Can't win them all."
