The Nutcracker in 3D: The Worst Movie Ever Made? OR A Gutsy Undertaking?

The Nutcracker in 3D is bearly in theaters and its already being condemed by critics.

I admit that I had mixed feelings myself after initially viewing the trailer , its a dark retelling of the classic ballet. The 'Rats' look too similar to the Whos from the Grinch in my opinion. And the 'Nucracker prince' doesn't really look like a Nutcracker, more like a wooden marionette.

Besides this, is this twist on a Christmas classic a good movie? Depends on your taste. When people went to see this, they probably expected a sweet sugar-plum-fairy of a story and were disturbed by what they saw. Art is in the eye of the eye of the beholder. I personally like the style of filming and the feel of the atmosphere.

I also like that the writer didn't care whether anyone liked this film or not. I think it took a lot of guts to create a movie like this. It shows that there are some people are still willing to be daring and creative and not worry about the opinions of others. Kudos to you Konchalovskiy!
