    Review: 'Arthur Christmas' Is A Visually Dazzling, Emotionally Rich Holiday Treat

    Making a truly classic Christmas movie is a feat that few achieve but many try their hand at. In recent years, studios have cynically tried to graft "edgy" material onto all-audiences Christmas approaches, often times involving Vince Vaughn for reasons that remain obscure, and the results ...

    Review: 'The Artist' A Joyous, Big Hearted Tribute To Old School Moviemaking
