Movie Review: The Grinch (2018)


Ben Hall

One of the most beloved movies was the remake of the holiday classic movie: “The Grinch.” Just for a little bit of background information, the Grinch is a holiday villain whom after years of loathing it, decides to steal Christmas so nobody else can enjoy it. However, before you go any further in this article, there are major spoilers for the movie. I think this movie is on Netflix, so I recommend watching it before you continue reading.

The movie starts off the Grinch with getting everything he needs for the day ready by feeding Max (his dog), and concocting once again a way to avoid Christmas cheer in the beautiful town of Whoville. After being tormented by giant Christmas trees, bright lights, and Whoville Christmas shopping, he decides to steal Christmas and ruin the holiday. After journeying far to get his own reindeer, he begins his scheme. He begins with taking down decorations and stealing present, ending up succeeding to ruining the holiday. However, after he realizes what bad he has done, he ends up returning the holiday cheer and saves Christmas in Whoville. In the end, the Grinch learns an important lesson about the holidays.

In summary, the movie is hilarious and heartwarming. It is a perfect movie to watch with your family and friends during the holidays. Try to enjoy Christmas without being a Grinch yourself!
