Film #48: Scrooged (1988)

Plot - It's Christmas Carol for the '80s crowd. There's some good gags, especially the intro five minutes where Murray fills a commercial with nuclear war, terrorism, and muggings to get people scared into watching his Christmas special.

Form - Nothing.

F/X - Some cool stuff. The ghost of Christmas future has a bunch of demon's chilling in his belly, the ghost of Christmas past has some truly absurd make-up.

Acting - Bobcat Goldwaith, David Johansen, and Alfre Woodard make for a great supporting cast.

Mise en scene - Eh.

Quotables - I remember laughing at some stuff.

Cool stuff - Not really.
