      yohannbiimu I think that the initial premise of this could have been excellent, and it was rather compelling up until the final "Ghost of Christmas Future" portion, and then, it completely fell off the rails with how utterly ridiculous the message is. It's essentially an internationalist/Marxist conclusion of mindless collectivism and a "for the greater good" ethic that mocks any sense of individualism and sense of self-worth. Its conclusion turns human beings into mindless cattle who NEED to be told what to do and how to behave by an international collective in order for humanity's survival. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 12/22/23 Full Review Carin This really hits more close to home than on the past. No more town halls or UN because we stopped talking to each other. And Peter Sellers wow that makes u think. Rod Serling was a genius and this is well done Rated 4 out of 5 stars 12/22/23 Full Review Andrew L In this version, Scrooge is Mr. Grudge, a rich industrialist who firmly believes that the US should build up its stockpile of nuclear weapons. Grudge is visited by 3 ghosts who show him visions of Hiroshima after the atomic bomb dropped, people in concentration camps, and a post-apocalyptic future where a small group of people wants to kill anyone who doesn't share their philosophy. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 12/12/22 Full Review Glenn G It is a reimagining of A Christmas Carol, it is not based on it (IMHO). If you watch it knowing this is a Rod Serling screenplay then you may just like it. Think of it as a Twilight Zoning of A Christmas Carol. While I recommend it, I don't know that I'll be watching it every holiday season. But maybe we should. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 11/30/22 Full Review kate t Even more pertinent today. Will we ever come together or will people still continue to bring on the apocalypse? Those that want this will probably never watch this... or see themselves for who they truly are. It's so sad so many have not progressed beyond 1964. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member Christmas Carol theme Rod Serling style...50 years later here we still are.

      Patrick McDonald HollywoodChicago.com This is talky and a bit draggy, but the issues it expounds upon proves that everything old is new again. And main the performances of Ghosts Past/Present/Future ... Steve Lawrence, Pat Hingle and Robert Shaw ... are magnificent. Pat & Ken At the Holidays! Rated: 3.5/5 Dec 10, 2023 Full Review Dennis Schwartz Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews This is TV at its creative best. Rated: B Dec 23, 2014 Full Review Read all reviews
