The Grinch Who Stole Christmas

Jan 18, 2012
Review by  
Rated a Very Helpful Review

Pros:-great message
-great music
-Boris Karloff

Cons:-none

The Bottom Line: This movie I heartily endorse,
with it's message positive.
The Live Action one is worse,
this one is not causative.  




Seuss wrote in verse for all his work,
His influence I will copy.
Love of poetry is a mild quirk,
The art this review will embody.

Quite a many people would like to say,
That Christmas shows have the wrong focus.
About Santa, elves and toys with kids can play,
Generosity, goodwill and love should be the locus.

This Grinch movie subverts those that complain,
A message of Christmas not about the gifts.
The antagonist looks upon Whos with disdain,
Up high above Whoville living on the cliffs.

He loathes what he sees is the celebration,
The noise and uproar because of toys.
He seeks to remove the causation,
Yet there is still the noise.

He comes upon a great realization,
That turns him upside down.
His character goes through mutation,
And returns to the town.

A heartwarming movie.
With wonderful content.
Art and background groovy,
For the whole segment.

Voices are quite nice,
Especially that of Karloff.
And the music does entice,
At which I do not scoff.

The greatest song this movie has,
Is “You’re A Mean One Mr. Grinch.”
Ravenscroft gives little pizzazz,
Yet the song is still a clinch.

To see this movie I would say,
See it when the season does arrive.
Or go out and buy it today,
I give this movie a five.
