Ebenezer Scrooge (Jim Carrey) is the miserly old sinner who is haunted by 4 ghosts and learns the lessons of the past, and the present, and the warning of the future to be, and is changed in his heart forever. This imagemovers version was originally shown in IMAX 3-D, and is very accurate word by word to the Dickens novel.

This 2009 telling of the Christmas Carol story is very accurate as far as the story goes. It was acted line by line, scene by scene by Jim Carrey and the rest wearing a body suit with sensors that transmit every motion (even facial expressions) to the computer which animated it. In that sense it is not drawn, it was generated by real life movements and motions. As a result of this, it gets very creepy sometimes, and some people don’t like the animated realism that this brings. But it’s far more accurate than anyone could every create on their own. In my opinion though, it is a wonderful version of the story, and I loved it, especially on a HUGE screen in 3D. I highly recommend this version of the story to see what Dickens actually intended. It is available on NetFlix “Watch Intantly” and on TV a few times this holiday season. This is perhaps the best Christmas Carol of all.
