The Cramp Twins

I saw this on animated TV long ago, as twins can be identical, but not identical.

A couple have two babies born. One nice, but one naughty.

Throughout the TV show, they have been fighting but learning lessons. One episode I watched, was how the good twin learned the life of lizards.

He and a friend made a great team, just as long as the blue naughty one isn’t in the way.

That was the only episode I saw, for as long as I can remember. It is for kids, but what they heck? I saw this a long time ago. Ah well, at least we know how some twins are different.

Christmas with the Kranks

Have you ever had a plan that can backfire? Well it did to Tim Allen. In this Christmas movie, a couple almost skipped Christmas by taking a vacation down south.

After their daughter, had to go away on a business trip to Peru, South America, they were left out at Christmas time for that couple. But with an idea from the father, he decided to plan a cruise for him and her and skip Christmas. Avoiding neighbors such as one played by Dan Aykroyd, not getting ready for Christmas and not letting ‘Frosty the Snowman’ out for display, Mr. Krank did play a little tricks on them as he froze the walkway. The carollers slipped on them and went out of control as he froze a white cat!

I can’t tell you much, but there was a lot going on.

After so much for what Luthor Krank was doing, and how Mrs. Krank almost got scared by Dan’s gloves on the side windows, their daughter called from Miami airport. She had a fiancé as she was coming home for Christmas.

That was when it backfired. They had to get everything Christmassy up for the holidays. Everything. Even when Tim Allen saw fiery eyes of Frosty the Snowman when he fell off the roof, and his Frosty the Snowman broke. Good riddance! I hated that evil snowman! They did helped him get a new snowman as it just snowed.

There was a thief on the loose, as they finally caught him. They all had a splendid Christmas, as in the end….uh…. You don’t wanna know! 😦

This is a 6/10 star movie I rate, as you wouldn’t believe me for what these two almost did. But backfired.

Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer and the Island of Misfit Toys

For as far as I can remember, I heard Rick Moranis’ voice in this Christmas movie, in this sequel to the Rankin/Bass Christmas classic. He plays as a phantom pied piper as he steals toys from all over the world.

China, Russia, America, Europe, and many continents for where toys are.

It even struck the North Pole, for where Father Christmas kept all of his toys! That did after Rudolph and his dentist elf made a visit to the misfit toy island, how there was a hospital for toys by a hippo and her gingerbread men, and teaching her girlfriend reindeer how to fly.

The toys were hidden in his secret hideout as they wondered why. After he robbed toys from the madam hippo’ place, the misfit toy island was next.

Rudolph, his reindeer girlfriend and dentist friend did all they could as they caught him in a peppermint mine. They found out that the phantom was a stuffed teddy bear. He had been saving them to keep them safe. So that they wouldn’t get old and be thrown out.

Things went better in the end, as things were sorted out. The toys were given back as this teddy bear, voiced by Rick Moranis, was back to it’s original owner. Only he has a daughter, in which she loved it.

And that was the last voice I’ve ever heard from Rick. He is still out there, planning what movie he should be in next. On the other hand, since I dislike the singing in this, what parts I dislike, and all that, the okay part was that, the flying lion of the misfit toy island, he had pain in his teeth. With the help of Rudolph’s dentist friend, he did had to fix him up. But he needed a root canal. And by turning on the drill, he fainted as he would know, root canals can hurt a lot.

So this is a 4/10 star movie, as it’s only for small kids. I did watched this when I was little, but this movie could only do for little children.

The Garden of Words (anime movie)

In this anime 45 minute movie, this tells how a high school boy and a woman who is her teacher as they spend time together. Like they are in love. The boy skips school on rainy days, the same as that woman for skipping work.

The boy is a shoemaker as he wants to make shoes for women. Even for that woman that boy was falling in love with. He was good with haiku’s, poems, tanka’s, and everything as a part time worker.

He and that women were really great.

There was a proud ending before and after the credits as they will be together again. This is a splendid anime movie of drama and romance.

‘A+’ for this!!!

March of the Wooden Soldiers (Babes in Toyland)

This is my first Laurel and Hardy movie I’ve ever believed in as I believed in marching but real wooden soldiers!

I saw this for the first time, as I watched clips. This can have its title or known as ‘Babes in Toyland’. Based on the opera by Victor Herbert.

In Toyland, for where are your favourite fables and fairy tale stories are, two brothers are to pay Barnaby the rent for their home or else. They don’t want to disappoint their mother.

They even got fired at the toy factory for when they made an accident and a very big mistake. They were to make 600 toy soldiers at one foot high for Father Christmas. Instead and misunderstood, they made 100 soldiers at six foot high. They got busted and didn’t get the money to pay for the rent. While Tom and Mary were to be in love, Barnaby accused Tom as he wanted Mary. So they go behind the plans of Barnaby as these two try to save the day. Just when Mary was taken by Barnaby to a place for where bogeymen were, Tom, Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy save Mary as they escaped. But the Barnaby and the bogeymen followed them and were causing destruction to Toyland.

That was when the best famous part comes. On the song, “March of the Toys”, they used the army of wooden soldiers as they saved Toyland! It made a great scene, in film history, as this was the very first version of “Babes in Toyland”. This was before the other versions as this is a great classic. “A+” for this!

The Little Drummer Boy

In a time of passion and trust in this animated movie, it takes place during the nativity story as a drummer boy and three animals were wandering around in the desert.

The drummer boy, once had a family on a sheep farm as they were killed by sheep thieves. His parents were murdered as he was the only survivor. Along with a camel, a donkey and a lamb. He hated humans and people as he wanted to be out on his own. No one else but he and those animals.

When he was caught by a street performer and his assistant, he wanted to make money. He did quite a performance as he went mad. It was the part I disliked that reminded him of the incident that did. How he lost his parents.

They escaped at that time, as they were in the desert at that night. When they saw a camp, there were the three wise men as kings as they saw the star in the sky. Jesus Christ was born.

The three wise men decided to leave as the street performer wanted to perform something at them. But they didn’t. Instead, when the wise men had lost a camel, they had to buy the camel from those three. It was the third animal friend that little drummer boy befriended. He was rich as he letted the drummer boy, the lamb and the donkey go.

They were out on their own, as they would search for their camel friend. All three followed the star for where the wise men went. All the way to Bethlehem.

The lamb got injured by a Roman as it was dead. He wanted to do something, but instead, made a song. It was the song we all know of when we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. He stood at the crib of Jesus Christ for where Joseph and Mary are. They smiled as he used his drum to play the song. Everyone loved it, as Jesus smiled. After that, the lamb was alive again as he was not into hatred again.

No one knows what happened to he and his friends, but hopefully found a new family. It was dramatic a bit, but good. For a good mark in all that, ‘D-‘.

The Toy that saved Christmas (Veggie Tales)

From the TV show, ‘Veggie Tales’, this is how giving there is in Christmas than getting things.

When a new toy was presented, known as ‘Buzz Saw Louie’, by that pickle guy and his potato with no eyes, he wanted to make money. By making children spoiled as people would buy those figures of ‘Buzz Saw Louie’.

At the factory, where they made each and every figure, penguins were onto working those, when one of them came to life! He escaped and met with Junior Asparagus, Bob the Tomato and Larry the Cucumber. They save Christmas as they head to the factory for where Louie was born and how they made the commercial.

They saved Christmas and their town as they know who was behind all this and what Christmas is all about. But when they were caught by that potato and pickle, they escaped as his henchmen penguins followed them. The pickle and the potato guy too.

They almost got killed in a cliff in which a bridge had been broken as they were glad they made it.

Buzz Saw Louie stayed with Bob, Larry and Junior as they were the true heroes that saved Christmas. They did a spectacular TV Christmas special as they did amazing!

A straight “A” for this!

The Nativity Story

From New Line Cinema in 2006, it gave out the best version of the nativity story. On how Mary was chosen to give birth to a son, by god as she and David had traveled to Bethlehem.

In a time of terrible deaths and tragedy, the Roman Empire was born as they went out of control. Which was why God chose Mary on this, that can bring peace to this world, and unlock the gates of heaven.

They had to stay safe, and travel far as long as they were alive. And on the night they made it, Jesus was born as the star shone upon Bethlehem as this began all this we know of.

So that is why at Christmas, we always celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ on how he was. Even the three wise men came. Shepard’s, farm animals, the people of Bethlehem, and everyone in this famous story.

This is a ‘B-‘ movie, since I first watched this a long time ago. It can be dreadful, but amazing on this classic nativity story.

A Charlie Brown Christmas

From Charles M. Schultz, he made the Christmas classic by Peanuts.

Charlie Brown, left out at Christmas time, while the rest are having fun. Luckily, he was chosen to be the director of the nativity story. Thanks to Lucy, Linus’ brother.

At the stage, they would have to trust him. But instead, they just do their dancing. But while getting ready for the nativity story, Lucy helped Charlie for roles. Pigpen and Frieda were to be the innkeeper and innkeepers wife, as Shermy was to be a Shepard. As Snoopy was to play the voices of the animals, Linus and Sally were to be Joseph and Mary.

As there were to be more roles by some of the students, instead, they do their dancing. That made him upset.

And when got a little Christmas tree for when they made fun out of him.

I do not like that, as someday, there will be punishment. But good thing ‘Robot Chicken’ did two parodies!

As he felt sad, they made him very happier as the redecorate the Christmas tree. Then they all called out…

“Merry Christmas, Charlie Brown!”

And they sang “Hark! The Harald Angels Sing” which is terrific! A straight “A” for this!

Merry Christmas, Mr. Bean

Rowan Atkinson as Mr. Bean was hilarious in this!! In this Christmas special, Mr. Bean goes Christmas shopping as he plays with toys, ornaments, get a tree, money and plans a date!

He does all that, shutting off Christmas lights in a store, getting himself and his teddy Christmas joy, as he plans hilarious stuff. He even got his head stuck in a turkey while stuffing as he boomed himself with too much crackers.

This is a ‘C+’ alright. There are some parts I do dislike in this.
