Robert Zemeckis hates Christmas: or, Leave Dickens alone!

This is probably what Hopkins meant when he wrote “no worst, there is none.”

From the BBC:

Bad:

Actor Jim Carrey is to play Ebenezer Scrooge and the ghosts of Christmas past, present and future

Worse:

a Walt Disney remake of A Christmas Carol

Worse:

The film will be directed by Oscar-winner Robert Zemeckis

Worse:

Zemeckis . . . will be using a style of computer graphics known as “performance capture”.
This technology was used in his festive tale The Polar Express three years ago

Note that they don’t say “used successfully.”

Bah, humbug!
