      Matthew H I didn't make it too far into this movie before turning it off. Was hoping for the nutcracker but I got this. I couldn't believe the mom wanted to reward the boys for being late, picking a terrible tree, and destroying the kitchen. Music was good though. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 12/18/23 Full Review Will S I can honestly say this is one of the worst movies I've seen to date. I was never expecting Nazi bears to featuring a family Christmas movie. I Decided to turn this movie off after getting an hour in, and have never regretted that decision. Not a fan at all, and I definitely wouldn't classify this as a family film, the nazi bear scene is quite terrifying to be honest. The story was also very odd, and extremely hard to follow. One word to describe it was lacklustre. I genuinely don't think there is any value in this for most people, especially families wanting a jolly Christmas movie/experience. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 11/07/23 Full Review Audience Member Speechless, the music was great, the story was mind boggling like a Jules Verne novel very hard to follow. Rating very difficult. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/12/23 Full Review Audience Member Certainly a one-of-a-kind adaptation, the most obvious deviations being Clara using her own likeness rendered in a dancing crystal tear as a freeze grenade against faceless and drooling Nazi creatures clad in wolves' skin, and the waltz with her fantasized Nutcracker-postboy in a mist-filled marble palace amidst feathered dancers. 'Wide awake, sleeping and dreaming, all at the same time.' Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/20/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
