    The Muppet Christmas Carol

    ★★★★★

    - What business has brought you here?
    - Your welfare.
    - A night's unbroken rest might aid my welfare.
    - Your salvation, then. Take heed. Come.
    - I beg you, Spirit. I am mortal and liable to fall.

    ★★★★½

    Destined to be one of 2016's lesser-known gems (but more than likely a future streaming sensation), "Midnight Special" is fully dedicated to bringing its engaging characters to life through a slow-burn storytelling process eerily similar to Steven Spielberg's classic masterpiece, "E.T."
