    WHY WASN'T THIS LONGER?! MAKE THIS A FEATURE! IT'S NOT TOO LATE!

    Doctor Who: A Christmas Carol

    ★★★★

    This has no right being as good as it is. I was gonna skip it because I'm a scrooge (and Jewish) and figured this would be a crappy Christmas special that'd just waste my time. So far, this is my favorite episode in the Matt Smith era.

    It definitely appeals to Doctor Who's youngest audience but with the intelligent Steven Moffat style that all ages can enjoy. I want this to be annual viewing for my kids. They don't exist…

    The Good:
    The message is original and feels very personal to Sofia Coppola.

    The Bad:
    It's almost too personal. Like, you have to be in this exact situation of fearing your husband's infidelity along with your overly-protective and offbeat father to really connect.

    The Ugly:
    Casting Bill Murray forces us all to unfairly compare this to Lost in Translation which is unmistakably the better film.

    Verdict:
    Far from her best work but still a decent addition to Sofia Coppola's filmography.…

    Can confirm: This is shit.

    It's not so bad that it's good. It's just the biggest, "how and why the fuck did this get made" in history. Everything about it is scarily bad.
