    Synopsis


    Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas
    He's mean, he's green, and he's doesn't like the Yuletide season one bit -- Jim Carrey stars in this live-action adaptation of the classic children's story by Dr. Seuss (aka Theodore Geisel). High atop Mt. Crumpet, the Grinch (Carrey) observes the residents of Whoville joyously preparing to celebrate Christmas. The Grinch was born in Whoville years ago, but was shunned due to his scary appearance, and his unrequited love for Martha May Whovier has turned him bitter; the good cheer of the Whos has been a thorn in his side ever since. Finally the Grinch decides he's had enough of all this happiness, and with the wary aid of his dog Max, the Grinch conspires to steal Christmas from Whoville, making off with their presents, holiday decorations, Christmas trees, and everything else used to enjoy the holiday. Molly Shannon, Christine Baranski, Jeffrey Tambor, and Clint Howard play several of the citizens of Whoville, while Anthony Hopkins narrates (taking over from the late Boris Karloff, who memorably read Dr. Seuss' story in Chuck Jones' 1966 animated adaptation of the story). Ron Howard directs. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

      One of the best Christmas movies

      Posted

      We all know this classic film. Jim Carrey does an awesome job as the Grinch in this movie. Back to his Ace Ventura type roles where he really gets to do what he wants with the role. The make-up and costumes in this version are also really great. Seeing it in HD was nice as well, as everything looks very nice. The only downfall to this movie is that the extra features for some reason are on the other side of the disc. So you have to remove the disc and flip it in order to get the extra features. Not sure why they did that. A great movie never the less, and a must buy for your Christmas collection.

      The original bluray had one of the worst pq out there. The 4k remaster that came out after was much better. This uhd uses that same master and includes the bluray. Other than increased definition, the other main difference would be the overall color of the movie which is much different than any previous version ive seen. I dont know which one is more accurate but the newer release is still miles ahead better than any previous release due to the increased definition alone

      I LOVE christmas so I have recently started to buy my favorite christmas movies on blu ray and this was definitely one of the first ones I bought. This was funny when I saw it when it first came out and even more hilarious now as I am older and can enjoy some of the jokes more. Jim Carrey does a truly outstanding job of being the Grinch, which is not an easy task at all, but perfect for him! One of the best modern Christmas movies, if not the best. If you like comedy and christmas at all, or just comedy, you will love this movie!

      Entertaining and Eye Opening

      I, like many, grew up on the Grinch; Christmas, and acceptance are big in the book and even animated movie, but what especially resonates with all of them, and even Ron Howard's rendition is that they delve into the Capitalistic World. I've come across a lot of people who really love this movie, or really hate it, but I still think it is a great film that entertains, and even teaches, children and adults, that gifts aren't everything. Family and friends make the holiday!

      Much more vibrant transfer, still some flaws that plagued the old release, but overall it's a new transfer and the best way to watch the film at home. As for the film itself, at this point you either consider it a holiday classic that must be watched every year around the holidays or its the horrible adaptation that plagues your mind because it still exists. If you are like me falling into the former category then pick this edition up as soon as possible.

      I grew up watching the animated "How the Grinch stole Christmas," but never saw this one when it came out, mainly because my family just loved the animated one too much that we didn't want to accept that a live action film could be better. But this one is. It gives a lot more backstory to the characters, and fleshes out WHY the Grinch actually acts the way he does. Great film, and totally worth buying.

      This movie seems to be either love it or hate it. I like it. Good for the kids. I finally bought this special furry sleeve they came up with. It's just a sleeve that the movie sits in. I'm always in the field of get a special edition or anything different then the regular Blu-ray release every single store gets. So glad with this purchase.

      This is a classic holiday movie with great acting and a great message about how holidays don't have to have all the trappings and toys...they can be about family and being thankful for what we have. One of my sisters thinks the way "the grinch" treats his little dog is atrocious. Not good for kids under 7, she says...as an adult I can say that most kids would love this classic.
