Thumbs up for Albert Finney who stars in the only Scrooge movie that I like!
Albert Finney played the character of John Newton in the film Amazing Grace (2008). :D
...cue in the Twilight Zone theme
Hahahahahahahaha!!!!!!Having Calvinistic Cartoons on the computer screen is awesome. :-P
Hey look! there's even a Corky grenade beside the computer monitor. :)
and to the right of the computer is the comic book cover (based on the movie) of "The Sons of Cotton Adams".
I've got to get one of those Romans 9 grenades to put next to the wooden TULIP sculpture on my computer desk.Oh, and...THE absolute best Scrooge ever was Michael Caine in A Muppet Christmas Carol. George C. Scott is a close second.
Old Dude: Chad, have you seen this website called "Calvinistic Cartoons"?Young Dude: Yes, thay Eddie guy makes me so stinking mad with his Arminian jokes.Old Dude: Why don't you call him and let him know what a real Arminian thinks?Young Dude: I had his number last week but I lost it this week...
Great lines from A Muppets Christmas CarolEbenezer Scrooge: What business has brought you here? Ghost of Christmas Past: Your welfare. Ebenezer Scrooge: Heh, a night's unbroken rest might aid my welfare. Ghost of Christmas Past: Your salvation, then.
People who like the Muppets version haven't seen the 1973 with Albert Finney. He played both young and old Scrooge, and we get a bonus with Obi Wan Kenobi as Jacob Marley. And the most memorable songs.Though this new musical play is pretty good. I think Kelsey Grammar was in the tv version.
@ Meghan SmithOh yes, the version with Finney and Sir Alec was great. It has been a while since I watched it. I must say, though, that the graveyard scene in the George C. Scott version surpasses all the others that I have seen.--------------------------------And while we're on the subject, Buggs Bunny's Christmas (with Yosemite Sam as Scrooge) has one of the best lines ever:Buggs: "If you don't change your ways, I'm going to take you to see the guy in the red suit."Sam: (cheerfully)"Sandy Claws?"Buggs: "No. The OTHER guy in the red suit."Sam: (pointing downward) "You mean....down there?"
John Locke was my favorite character (in Lost, not philosophy). Nice to know he was a Calvinist after all.
