TEMPLARKNIGHT’S FAVORITE HOLIDAY MOVIES
21. Arthur Christmas
This is a Christmas film that came and went without a whole lot of notice. I missed it in Theaters, even though I was looking forward to it based on just an awesome teaser trailer. I watched it on demand a few years back and thought it was awesome.
It’s basically the story of 3 generations of the Claus family and reluctance to pass the torch to the next generation and for the right reasons. The current Santa, with the help of his eldest son, have turned the delivery of presents into a full scale military operation with Elves going in the middle of the night like mission impossible to deliver presents. The problem is, one present is missed and then all hell breaks loose with everyone trying to deliver the last present and the conflict between generations of the best way to deliver it.
It’s just a lot of fun and at the same time fairly heartwarming. Just like a Christmas movie should be.
I don’t have a lot to add. This post I seemed to have gotten right the first time. Here, have a gif wrapped polar bear.
