  1. Wish they burn all footage and copies of this annoying film. I dont see how i am not in the majority with this, there is nothing great about this film.

  2. First off, I will attempt to return my blu-ray disc of this because the audio and video are very much out of sync. The video quality is really no different than the regular DVD. BluRay doesn’t add anything for this movie.

  3. This odd little film has become the parallel-universe “It’s A Wonderful Life” of our time. It brings up memories that many people can identify with – wanting – with all your heart – a toy that will “shoot your eye out”, facing up to the school bully and then getting punished for being violent rather than being commended for courage, and for those of you up north, sticking your tongue on a frozen pole and getting stuck to it. This actually happened to my brother-in-law as a kid.

    However, Ralphie, the protagonist in our film, has a completely dysfunctional family. To be specific, he has a completely dysfunctional father. In the narration Ralphie never even calls him “dad” – he’s just “the old man”. “The old man” cares about nothing more than he cares for the tackiest of lamps that he received as an award that is made out of a mannequin’s leg that he displays in a position of prominence in the living room. Ralphie’s father is no George Bailey. If he got to see the world as it was if he never existed, no doubt the only noticeable difference would be that the tacky lamp would belong to someone else and Ralphie and his mother would be better off. The narration is wonderful as you see everything from a child’s perspective, and if you remember your childhood at all, you can probably remember reasoning things out as Ralphie does. In Ralphie’s world adults – including his parents – are the arbitrary givers of reward and punishment who all seem to be in odd and unreasoned alignment. These adults are mazes to be solved, not givers of lessons to be learned. However, as an adult, you’ll see the humor in the situations too. Highly recommended.

  4. For me, this is a childhood favorite! We watch it every Christmas, and when they show it on tv for 24 hours. I love how it has the classic look of the 40’s! I have a lot of favorite parts that there are too many to list. In case you are new, I’ll give you a brief synopsis; Ralphie Parker wants an official Red Ryder carbine-action 200-shot range model air rifle (BB Gun) for Christmas, but his mother, teacher, and Santa Claus keep telling him “You’ll shoot your eye out” Will Ralphie get his BB gun? If you love Christmas, comedies, and classics, you’ll love A CHRISTMAS STORY!!!
