Today is the first Philippine screening of Arthur Christmas. The movie was not in the list of the films I wanted to see but since there are no new items showing in the cinema (I have already watched them all), I decided to go for it. My special friend also thought of the same thing. We were left with no choice but to see the movie on 3D or else, we're going to bore ourselves. Wednesday is our movie day and we cannot just let the it pass without seeing a great film on the big screen. Thus, we still bought our tickets for Arthur Christmas. When we entered the 3D Cinema of GMall, to our surprise, we found out that we were the only persons who have chosen to watch the film. It felt like we own the big place which was really cool.
My rating for the film is ★★★★☆. It was good but not good enough. There is something lacking in the movie. However, overall, the persons behind this Christmas film did a great job for making a movie that will certainly touch the hearts of its viewers. The moral of the story is really perfect. The movie teaches its viewers about the real essence of Christmas. The character of Arthur shows what it means to truly give presents and gifts on the most special time of the year. For him, nothing feels great than making the dreams of the children come true. He does not want people to forget about Santa Claus (Though in real life, we know Santa does not exist. But let's face it, the thought of this man's presence makes every child happy. We must not take that away from them.)
After seeing Arthur Christmas, I realized it wasn't that bad after all. The film reminded me of the important things about the Christmas season. When I was a little kid, I believed in Santa Claus. But as years pass by, I realized he is not real but it doesn't stop me from believing that someone out there is as great as Santa Claus. Someone out there is willing to share all the blessings that he has for the people.
Thank you for the first Coffee Talk ♥
