Green meanie’s back for Christmas
IT’S been 18 years since Dr Seuss’s famous tale, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, came to the big screen in the live-action feature film directed by Ron Howard and starring Jim Carrey, so there’s a whole new generation who will appreciate the latest version by Illumination Entertainment and Universal Pictures.
The Grinch isa3D computer-animated production, exploring a bit more of what makes the green and tiny-hearted Christmas-hating villain so grumpy.
Narrated by Pharrell Williams, The Grinch brings the tale to life via great CGI animation and the detail is brilliant.
It’s a movie you could watch over and over and see something different each time.
The scene is set in the cynical grump’s cave on Mt Crumpet, rigged with mind boggling contraptions.
With only his loyal dog, Max, the Grinch lives a
solitary life. But when Whosville declares they are going to make the festive season three times bigger, the Grinch goes on a mission to steal Christmas by posing as Santa Claus on Christmas Eve.
You may not recognise him, but Benedict Cumberbatch (Doctor Strange, Sherlock Holmes) voices the iconic green furry creature and does the role justice.
This is a must-see movie for all the family this festive season and one that is sure to become a part of the Christmas list of movies to watch in years to come.
INSTANT CLASSIC: The Grinch is in cinemas now.
