What is Your Favorite Version of ‘A Christmas Carol’?

Our mission at SAW is to foster conversations about this thing we all love (or love to hate): film/TV. Many of our features are designed with you in mind. Your opinions, to be more to the point. You have ’em. We want to hear ’em.

Question of the Day (QOTD) is exactly what it sounds like. It’s a film/TV-related question that we put to you, the reader. The comments section below is like the feedback box at work; except, in this example, we actually read what you write and care about what you have to say.

There are no shortages of A Christmas Carol, there seems to be a new version that gets made in a film every few years or so. But we all have a version we like that stands out more than the others.

So, the question I ask today is: what is your favorite version of A Christmas Carol?

The version that stands out more than the others to me is The Muppets Christmas Carol. Thanks to a brilliant performance by Michael Caine as Ebenezer Scrooge, the narrative and comic relief of both Gonzo and Rizzo as well as the musical numbers gives this film more than enough reason to still be an enjoyable watch all of these years later.

So what about you, screenagers? What is your favorite version of A Christmas Carol?

I’ll see you in the trenches.
