It feels good to be back in the saddle talking about Christmas movies! This week we’re talking about the 2018 adaptation of Dr. Seuss’ “How The Grinch Stole Christmas,” simply titled The Grinch. Produced by Illumination Studios (the house that Minions built), this film currently holds the title of Highest Grossing Christmas Film Ever. Home Alone held that title for 28 years until the right cartoon came out at the right time of year…
But that doesn’t mean there isn’t plenty to discuss! In this episode we compare this film to the 2000 live-action abomination, question the need for licensing so many Christmas songs for five seconds apiece, and ponder the need to cast Benedict Cumberbatch to voice The Grinch. Come join us!
