It’s Christmas eve, and time for me to do a final Christmas review (not necessarily the last review, though)
I will review _____________!
I actually don’t know how to go about this. It was suggested I review this, and I thought it sounded funny and like a good challenge. So, here it goes!
This is a story about a normal guy. As everyone knows, however, there is no such thing as normal, which is to say- this main character has some issues, which are difficult to reconcile oneself to.
He’s born into a Bubble Lifestyle (basically, everyone he knows is supposed to do a task their ancestors did) but he just doesn’t fit in the bubble!
Well, this doesn’t sound very Christmas-y so far, especially when you find that your main character has abandoned his home and family! One assumes he gets reunited, but there doesn’t seem to be much chance of the whole situation being fixed!
This story is great for suspense! It’s atmosphere and storyline is as stark and wintery as it’s simple setting – either that or the atmosphere and storyline is simple, and the setting stark and wintery. It doesn’t help when an enemy is introduced that pushes up the danger against our heroes!
I would recommend this to everyone, by the way. With the way I’m describing it, I sound a bit uncertain about this story. Well, oddly enough, it’s not extraordinary. But it has it’s good points, including the solution of the awkward abnormality (or normality) being another problem, to which the main character’s abnormality can solve everything. (did that make any sense?)
Yes, I am reviewing Rudolph, the Red-nosed Reindeer!
This was never my favorite Christmas animation, partly because I always found Rudolph a bit whiny, his bullies- well, bullies- and the abominable snowman plain ugly! Why couldn’t they have a polar bear or overgrown penguin?
However, watching it more recently, I have realized how stark and scary the storyline is (which just shows that it is OK to show kids scary things, because they don’t always get it). I’m still not sure Rudolph’s nose is bright enough to shine light for Santa, but it’s a really fun story!
Merry Christmas, everyone!
I wanted to say something tomorrow (practically today) but there’s not much more for me to say.
Merry Christmas, and may everyone be safe and well!
And God bless us, everyone!
