'A Frozen Christmas'
(Kj Schrock, Evan Tramel, et al / DVD / NR / 2016 / MVD Visual)
Overview: 'A Frozen Christmas' is the perfect way to get the family in the Holiday spirit with the most beloved animated Christmas characters, including Santa Claus, the Snowman, Elves, Santa's Reindeer, and more!
DVD Verdict: Sure, we've had en masse of these types of animated films, and sure we've had much better in that animated department, but there's something very alluring about 'A Frozen Christmas', out now via MVD Visual.
Starting off with some rather great, it has to be said, opening graphics, it's when the actual story line takes ahold that you question how long the movie's run time is. Chock full of capable and above decent animation, in general, 'A Frozen Christmas' offers many lessons about believing in Christmas and loving others therein. But quite why, when each story is brought forth, they didn't create the same level of animation as they did in the opening sequences is beyond me!
That said, and let's get this straight from the off, just in case you buy this DVD and think something is wrong with your DVD player, 'A Frozen Christmas' is a narrated story over animated still pictures. So, let's not go expecting that lovely, free flowing opening credit animation to still be so prevalent once the stories are brought forth.
Still, for the wee ones, 'A Frozen Christmas' is the perfect way to get the family in the Holiday spirit with the most beloved animated Christmas characters, including Santa Claus, the Snowman, Elves, Santa's Reindeer, and more! So come one, come all and gather around and listen as Santa and his young elf pals narrate time honored Christmas story classics such as, The Elves and the Shoemaker, Little Girls' Christmas, The Fir Tree, the Brave Tin Soldier and more!
