The Grinch Review


Jayden Jackson

In the original Grinch movie, the Grinch was mean to Max his dog; in this version, they have a much better relationship. All the characteristics of the original cartoon are there, but the story is told in a completely different way than both of the original movies. The Grinch’s sadness and anger are explained with a backstory that has him as an orphan (there are no details on how or why he’s an orphan) who sees Christmas being celebrated around him but who isn’t able to be included in the holiday spirit. That’s what makes him head off to the cave. There are some mostly ridiculous parts in the movie but it’s all ultimately good-spirited. The main characters we meet are white (or green). I personally. really enjoyed it, but I wouldn’t watch this one over the originals.
