8th Day of Christmas: How the Grinch Stole Christmas (2000)


Welcome to Hacker’s countdown to Christmas! The 12 Days of Christmas are here!

On the 8th Day until Christmas, we are watching:

How the Grinch Stole Christmas the live action film made in 2000 starring Jim Carrey. I love the narration by Sir Anthony Hopkins. I am not a big Jim Carrey fan. I like some of his movies, but they are few and far in between. This is not one of them. I am a fan of the original cartoon. I do like that it gives some of the Grinch’s backstory. It shows why he was so mean, which is nice. Like Regina the Evil Queen from Once Upon A Time said, “Evil is not born. It is made.” Very true in this case. Cindy Loo Who takes up the cause and makes it her mission to bring some love and cheers to the Grinch. A very sweet gesture showing love is the point of the season, not presents. I do enjoy Jim Carrey’s rendition of “You’re A Mean One Mr. Grinch”. I think it was a major highlight of the movie. When you get passed the obligatory storyline fluff and get back to the original Dr. Seuss story, the movie becomes gold. If they had just done the original story, just like the cartoon, but live action I feel it would have been a new holiday classic. The costumes and sets were lovely. It really brought the world of Dr. Seuss and the Whos to life.
