The Grinch Review

Via Variety
The Grinch is fun, family fare perfect for those looking to celebrate the holiday season. Benedict Cumberbatch gives a fresh take to the classic character, there is good family-friendly humor, and there are new elements added to the story to keep things interesting. I’m not sure how much I enjoyed the hip-hop remixed theme, I would’ve much preferred hearing Thurl Ravenscroft’s original version, but that may be my only criticism. Kenan Thompson provides some extra comic voicework. The animation looks great. While The Grinch may not hit you emotionally, nor be better than the original cartoon, it still is a good way to kick off the holiday season. 8/10

Movies have been my passion since I was a young teenager. I had realized how much I loved going to the theater and watching something on the big screen, and I wanted to feel that sensation as often as possible. I began seeing as many movies as my schedule and wallet could allow, and in wanting to give back to the film community and myself, I wrote film reviews. I first posted them under the audience reviews of Rotten Tomatoes; if I ever go back to those posts now I cringe at the writer I used to be. In 2018, I had the idea to start my own space to post my content and thus Movie Reviews Today was born. I am a film and media studies student at Arizona St. University. I am also a three-year shift supervisor with Starbucks. My hope is to soak up as many movies and movie knowledge as I can moving forward and to share my passion with my readers.
