100 Movies before we move: #39
The gizmos and gadgets and feelings that were felt, made this tale of Christmas one an ice heart did melt. 9/10.
I never hated How the Grinch Stole Christmas, and apparently that puts me in the minority. Having said that, I think this is a much better version of the story for the intended audience. The Carrey version was a little too risque to be truly a kids’ film. This version doesn’t have that problem. From the perspective of an adult, this was like a pavlova: light, fluffy, a little too sweet, but really quite more-ish. The script was on point the animation was delightful, and it felt like a Dr Seuss story should. 9/10.

It was super awesome except the fuzzy skin and noses weirded me out a little bit. 9/10.
