SO I love the Grinch, so does my entire family. I already owned the Grinch on ITunes as a “TV Show”. When I saw the new “Ultimate Edition” in HD, I figured it would be an upgrade... The old 1960’s squared off picture would be rejuvenated, made to fit modern screens - better color. This is just the exact same Grinch I already owned, and they tricked me into rebuying it. Also “Ultimate Edition” - it is not. The other included Grinch movies are TERRIBLE. The older ITunes TV show version included “Horton Hears a Who”, which is much better than the awful other grinch movies that are included in this “bundle.” Terrible.
It lacked a whole program. Cut up and ruined. Not for my children to see.
This is the Grinch. Accept no substitutes. Narrated by the one and only Boris Karloff. No need to pad it with silly antics and cheesy special effects. Just the story itself. Watch it again, and enjoy.
This movie falls short of the other two movies but still ok
This is the best performance Boris Karloff has done since retiring from playing Frankenstein’s Monster in 1939
The movie is just like you remember. The reason for rating this only 3 stars is that there is no menu to select which of the 3 included holiday specials you want to watch. Want to watch Halloween is Grinch Night? You have to fast-forward to it. This is iTunes in 2018, not a VHS tape from the 80’s.
