“The Grinch” Movie (2018) — Cute, Very Christmassy & Great For Younger Kids.

by Anura Guruge

They got it right. Spot on. Nothing profound or pretentious. Just ‘The Grinch’ per Dr. Seuss using imagery very true to Dr. Seuss. Like an illuminated, vividly colored Dr. Seuss book.

They kept the graphics, intentionally, 1950ish but with great 21st century rendering. Great colors, voices, songs and music. Very festive. They also kept it short: 86 minutes. That was good.

Teischan (12), who tells me she has watched the old (i.e., 2000) movie multiple times, wanted to see it badly. We both agreed that she was a tad too old for it — though she liked it. She thought it was too short (compared to the ‘original’). It has been 18 years since I saw the 2000 version. I think I like this one better. Works better in cartoon form since that is more true to original.

Definite must for younger kids. We went to a Thursday afternoon (i.e., 3:20pm) matinee at the Concord, New Hampshire, “Regal 10“. I knew it wouldn’t be packed, and it wasn’t. There were just 5 others — 3 of them kids. The kids squealed and laughed. They liked it. And that is what matters.

It was good. Definitely recommend it.
