The Grinch

Christmas is just around the corner and I recently saw The Grinch in theaters. This was another animated remake of the grinch. This was considered a fantasy/musical and is rated PG. The movie is perfect for a family movie night. It was very cute and well done. In this remake the Grinch is made out to more compassionate and nice. In other versions I’ve seen he was more mean spirited. In the movie you’re made to feel bad for the Grinch instead of him being unlikable. The rest of the movie was all around a great film. I rate it a 7.5/10.

The Gift

Over Thanksgiving break I watched “The Gift”. This movie is a movie/thriller and is rated R. This movie is definitely worth a watch. It is about a husband and wife who recently moved to a very nice mansion that is all glass. Simon, the husband, sees a man from his past who seemed kind of off. Rebecca, the wife, felt bad for him and invited him to dinner. Simon seemed annoyed throughout the dinner and did not like him. Gordon, the weird man, kept dropping by at weird times and acting strangely. He would only drop by when Simon wasn’t home and Rebecca was all alone. He drops off “gifts”. The whole movie is very suspenseful and keeps you on the edge of your seat. The ending has a big unexpected plot twist. I rate this movie 8/10.
