The Grinch (2018)
God this film is adorable. It’s super Christmassy (even though it was released in November) and the animation is lovely, particularly all of Whoville which looks magical on the big screen.
Honestly, there’s not that much to say about it really, other than it is gentler than How the Grinch Stole Christmas (2000) without Jim Carrey‘s signature snark and that’s okay. The story isn’t anything earth-shattering – The Grinch steals Christmas and then learns a very valuable life lesson with the help of single mother Donna (Rashida Jones) and her adorable rug rats.
Cindy-Lou (Cameron Seely) is sweet and non- irritating, Max the Dog steals the show and the movie is funny and earnest in places though for the life of me now I can’t think of any jokes. I know I liked it though.
