There have been so many Christmas movies over the years that it’s worth taking note of a good one. From Aardman, the Wallace and Gromit people, comes Arthur Christmas, about the son of Santa Claus who, after spotting one present left undelivered, embarks on a worldwide journey to make sure it reaches its rightful home. What good is the “nice” list, after all, if the North Pole is going to muck it up? Deliciously served with snarky British sensibilities, Arthur Christmas is surprisingly sharp for adults and visually enormous and active for kids. The voice cast is top-notch, featuring James McAvoy as the title character, Jim Broadbent as the current yet tiring Santa, and Bill Nighy as the long-retired and feisty Grandsanta, who proudly proclaims he’s 136 years old. This is a tremendous amount of fun, even if you don’t like Christmas movies—or Christmas, for that matter.
