21. Dr. Seuss’ The Grinch (2018)

The Grinch is the third adaptation for the screen of the iconic Dr. Seuss story, with the Perth two being the 1966 cartoon and the 2000 live-action film starring Jim Carey. The computer-animated 2018 entry turned out to be a game-changer as it was highly praised for its animation and vocal performances. Starring in this beautiful motion picture is Benedict Cumberbatch, Rashida Jones, Kenan Thompson, Angela Lansbury, and Pharrell Williams as the narrator. The film grossed $511 million, making it the highest-grossing holiday film of all time and the highest-grossing adaptation of any of Dr. Seuss’s works.

The sensational story tells the classic tale while still putting its own subtle and unique spin on things ruling in an experience new and old fans can enjoy. The narrative follows the grumpy green guy known as the Grinch and his dog Max as they plan to ruin Whoville’s holiday fun by stealing the town’s festive decorations and presents. The classic tale gets a stunning makeover and offers the same amount of emotion and heart, if not more, than every other iteration to come before it. If there is one Christmas movie subscribers watch this season, it should, without a doubt, be Dr. Seuss’s The Grinch.
