You're a mean one...Illumination.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WEMpB4klpG8
>>99102843Well it'll be better than the Jim Carrey one
>>99102843gee, I wonder if it's gonna be as good as all other Doctor Seuss movies or EVEN BETTER
>>99102843RIP fantastic bitch 2EVERY WB MOVIE IS OFFICIALLY DOA
>>99102843>Benedict Cumberbatch Animation MovieSo is this supposed to be an autobiography or smthn?
>the minion logo was less cringeworthy than the grinch footage
>>99102843Oh. Ok then.
>open tab>top 40 pop song>close tab
Was this really a trailer, or just the world's longest teaser?It's two minutes of literally nothing happening!
>>99102843I really dislike the use of liscensed music in movies, like they couldn’t be bothered to compose their own score
>>99102843Is this just a remake of despicable me?
>Happy by Pharrell WilliamsTHEY ALREADY FUCKING USED THIS FOR DESPICABLE ME 3
>>99102843>99102843why cumberbatch of all people? I like him but as the Grinch? Nah.
>>99102852Nothing will ever beat out that fever dream or lights, yogurt, and creepy noses.
>>99102843Lorax 2: The Grinching
>>99103002That's too bad. It gets worse.
>>99102852Are you literally retarded? By the trailer it looks like utter garbage, way worse than the LA.
>>99102852>tfw it will turn out worse than the Jim Carrey movie
>>99102843 Max looks too happy, Grinch should be more abusive to his dog
>>99102852A dog turd would be better than the Jim Carrey one... but it'd still be a dog turd.
>>99102843>Happy Holi-You've crossed the line Illumination
Goddamn Max looks creepy. Like a dead eyes them park mascot.
There's rumors that Grinch is going to get a boyfriend
>>99102852I liked the Jim Carrey one. Maybe I'm not among the crowds that hate it or something, cause I've never met anyone who hated it.
Calling it right now:>Cindy Lou is a cynical preteen who hates Christmas because her parents love it and insists that the Grinch let her help him ruin Christmas and he eventually decides not to because he doesn't want to turn her into himAlso it really irks me seeing the Grinch just casually walk around Whoville.
Seems like they're going for a much different route to expand the novel than the Carrey one. I kinda like the idea that Grinch isn't this ostracized freak that terrorizes the town, but instead is just some grumpy asshole that likes annoying the people around him for kicks.The trailer makes the film look fairly aimless, and it has the usual obnoxious Illumination cliches, but for the most part this looks pretty inoffensive.
>>99103523That'd be too much for today's kids.
>>99102852The Jim Carey Grinch was awful in a fascinating wayThis is just awful in the usual Illumination way
>>99103847Source your ass?
>>99104031>Seems like they're going for a much different route to expand the novel than the Carrey one. I kinda like the idea that Grinch isn't this ostracized freak that terrorizes the town, but instead is just some grumpy asshole that likes annoying the people around him for kicks.But that's Gru in this first DM movie, this and that's trailer are basically the fucking same, including going into a store and casually ruining everyone's day.
>>99102843I want to fuck that dog.
YOUR BRAIN IS FULL OF SPAINYOU'VE GOT SPAIN IN YOUR BRAIN MR. GRIRCHSPAIN IS FULL OF SPIDERSYOU'VE GOT THIRTY NINE AND A HALF SPIDERS IN YOUR BRAIN
>>99104069Haven't seen DM in years, but good point there, it does look pretty similar.In comparison to the Carrey version, which attempted a semi-dark backstory for Grinch, this one looks like he'll just be an average grump, though he'll probably get a sentimental moment or two before the film reaches the books ending.
>>99104126NINENINENINE AND A HALF
>>99102843So..We managed to make a grinch movie... that looks worse than the Jim Carrey one?At least the JC one had some 'Seussian' life to it. This looks like a slightly zanier normal modern world.
>>99104126YOU'RE A JEW
>>99104031>the novel>1300 word, illustrated children's storyThere's nothing to fucking expand on and all this padding and trying to make the grinch more sympathetic or the whos more annoying or cindy lou more down with the kids or whatever is insulting and retarded.The Grinch doesn't need a tragic backstory - he's a curmudgeon who tries to ruin shit for people but learns the true meaning of Christmas. That's all.The Whos don't need to be more grounded and flawed - they're decent people who enjoy the holiday and ultimately don't let materialism obfuscate the spirit of the season. That's all.This is the whole problem with all these stupid efforts to turn 30, 40, 60 page children's stories into 2 hour movies, there's not enough material to make a faithful adaptation long enough so they pad it out with dumb shit until the entire moral and spirit of the source material is lost. It happened with the Carrey Grinch movie, it happened with the Horton movie, it happened with that Lorax abomination, etc.If you want to do a Seuss adaptation, do an anthology - a series of 20-25 minute adaptations of Seuss stories like the Chuck Jones cartoons did.
>>99102843The question is if they'll manage to create something as glorious as the kitchen scene from Cat in the Hat in this massive pile of shit
>"Updated" take on a classic with contemporary pop musicMan I like Shrek but you know whatFuck the influence it had on animated moviesFuck it
>>99103847Tumblr would love that.
>>99102843How can an animated movie have less engaging production design than a mediocre holiday flick from 2000?
>>99104237Novel was a poor choice of words from me. I agree that a lot of these movies are really fucking poorly paced, and the need to expand them into 2 hours leads to lots a lot of awful scenes, like that DBZ scene in Horton. 30 minute stories would be pretty cool, but I doubt Illumination would see any market for that.It'd be pretty interesting if Seuss's stories could be adapted into ten minute shorts that play before a main animated feature.
What pisses me off about this trailer is that it did the most insulting thing one could do to The Grinch. They made it BORING! How can you make anything from the world of Dr. Seuss look BORING?
>>99104363Whatever happened to those animations of the books like the Sneetches and green eggs and ham?I used to watch them all the time as a kid and I'd enjoy seeing newer ten minute shorts of them in a theater rather than 15 previews of dogshit
>>99103028this is illumination , invest as little as possible, earn as much as possible.
>>99102843>Grinch is just literally green Groo
>>99104331>>99103847so.. Tumblr husbandoing Grinch when?
>>99104363Exactly - you could absolutely adapt most Seuss stories into cute little ten minute shorts. It'd also be a compliment to Disney/Pixar's approach of using shorts to make up for shorter features. You go to see the new Despicable Me or whatever shit Illumination is making and - oh look, there's a cute 10 minute short about Spooky Green Pants or the North and South-going Zaxes, or Bartholomew Cubbins and his ten thousand hats.Nobody wants to watch two hours of Sneetches where there's a twenty minute montage in the middle of the movie where the Sneetches are all customizing their stars with colors and emojis and shit. Nobody wants to watch a three hour adaptation of the Butter Battle Book with big long Lord of the Rings battles in it. Just fucking stop.
>>99104269I've never seen that movie because I heard it was a dumpster fire but holy fuck that was peak Mike Myers humor, is the rest of the film really that bad?
>>99104421Dr Seuss on the Loose - it's a series of Seuss stories adapted for screen, they're all about 5-10 minutes and you've got the Cat in the Hat narrating stuff.That's exactly how a modern Seuss adaptation SHOULD be done - just a bunch of fun kid stories loosely strung together. Winnie the Pooh did the same goddamn shit with The Many Adventures and everybody loved it, now instead we've got Christopher Robin is the stereotypical overworked neglectful dad who gets a visit from his imaginary friend and spends two hours learning that he needs to quit his job and be a stay at home dad or fucking whatever.
>>99102843The Grinch was my favorite Dr. Suess book when I was a kid. It's always nice to see it be raped again. Nothing will beat the Chuck Jones animation.
>>99104511...soon. I'm looking forward to it
>>99102843Using 'Happy' makes sense since it's technically an Illumination song (It was written for DM2)
>>99102843They didn't really show anything in this.It was more like a teaser trailer than a regular trailer.
>we had a teaser for this trailer which was a teaser and not a trailer and we still don't have an actual trailer yet
>it's just a reskinned Despicable Me
>>99103847>>99104061>>99104511what if its the dog?
>>99102843>illumination has turned a beloved Christmas story into a generic le meanie meme man who becomes good at the end plus wacky side kickY A W N
>>99104511Don't you fucking joke about that, I'm not strong enough to go through Oncest 0.2 again holy shit
>these movies earn more than Blue Sky movies.I miss Dreamworks-Pixar-Disney rivalry.
It's just a rehash of Despicable Me but without the little girls. And even then we know at some point he will meet Cindy so it's plausible they'll recycle that too.
>>99102843Why does Jim Carrey ruin everything he touches? He only has like two good movies in his entirety of existence.
>>99105522How bad could it possibly be?
is this canon to Horton?
>>99105579He man, Jim Carrey may be a narcissistic asshole but he's a damn good actor/comedian.
There's so much bad taste ITT. The Jim Carrey movie is great. It's no Chuck Jones short, but it had some genuinely good ideas, as well as some horrifying (but amusing) bad ones.
>>99105117>tfw it's more of a teaser than the actual teaser
>>99105669Cable Guy? no wait, that sucked. The Grinch? oh shit, that was godawful too. umm, Christmas Carol? aw shoot, guess I'm just not finding anything he done that was any good except for Dumb and Dumber and Me, Myself and Irene.What's he even up to these days anyway?>https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N0Wn3Eey6dYOh, nevermind...
>>99102843This literally inspires nothing. If it was a food, it would have no taste.>>99102852I'll defend that movie every time. Say what you will about it, but the designs, story progression, and even Jim Carrey's performance were great. It felt unique yet familiar.
>>99102843How do they manage to make Seuss designs look so bland and uninspired?
>>99104556Yeah, that's the only decent scene in the whole thing.
>>99105777>not The Mask>not Ace Ventura>not Liar Liar>not the fucking Truman Show>but apparently Dumb and Dumber and My, Myself, and Irene are the "good Jim Carrey movies"Just stop consuming media.
>>99105777>Cable Guy >suckedOh shit, fuck you in Hell>Jim Carrey's Grinch suckedWhy do people hate this film, it was a classic. I still watch it, so many people with shitty tastes
>>99105777Your trips may be heavenly but your opinion is not.Truman Show, Ace Ventura, the Mask, Dumb and Dumber, and Irene.
>>99102852I really don't get why people hate that movie. It's honestly one of my favorites.>great soundtrack>great actors>great messageI'll defend that movie forever.
>>99102843>annoying dated pop-culture song in the first five minutes Kill me.
>>99102843>tfw in the spic dub the Grinch will be voiced by DerbezHoly fuck, did Illumination became its personal bitch or something?
>>99105906All shit, but I will begrudgingly give you Truman Show because it was a great concept. Fuck The Mask and fuck the Pet Detective.>>99105927You are a broken human being who hasn't even grown into his nose yet.
>>99102843>the Grinch’s home looks cutesy >the Grinch is a non-scary pussy bitchI fucking hate you, Illumination.
>>99103614The Grinch is now an alt-right troll who complains about how the war on Christmas gets in the way of him stealing Christmas.
>>99102843These are the people in charge of the Super Mario Bros movie. Be afraid.
>>99102843Is it bad appearance wise I don't think this looks too terrible? It'll still be bad but it looks infinitely better than the live action one.
Benedict Cummberbatch is awful as the grinch
Can I kill myself now?
>>99105927I feel like Jim Carrey's acting is what carries the whole movie. The set designs, too. But Jim Carrey is hilarious in that movie.This, this just leaves NO impression. Wasn't Illumination set to do a Cat in the Hat movie after this? Now it's at WB Animation. Maybe they weren't happy with how The Grinch was shaping up.
>>99105625Why. Did. You. Need. To. Say. That.
>>99102843Not gonna lie, I love Bendydong Fuckasnitch, and the animation is nice, but you will never top Jim's role in the live action film.
Bill Nighy should have been the Grinch
>>99102852Honestly Jim Carrey worked pretty good with what he got in all, to bad it was a shameless carsh grab like all Doctor Seuss modern movie.
>>99105906>But all of those are awesome. Same with Yes Man, and The Grinch. You just hate him because he can actually act.
>>99102843https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qycTlyhVQxUSuperior Grinch cartoon
>>99102843i like it
>mfw people will STILL try to defend this fucking crap.
>>99106194illumination's never gonna recover from the lorax eh
Just you wait until you hear the Wholem Shake.
>>99104225The Grinch is not a Jew
>>99106194And Disney will keep going on Top with movies like Zootopia and shit.
>These people are doing the Mario Brothers movieWe’re doomed
>>99106341EVERYBODY DO THE M A R I O
>>99104577>now instead we've got Christopher Robin is the stereotypical overworked neglectful dad who gets a visit from his imaginary friend and spends two hours learning that he needs to quit his job and be a stay at home dad or fucking whatever.I thought you were joking, but then I looked it up.
>>99105669Man if you actually look back at Jim Carrey's career you'll realize he was always a terrible comedian. Great dramatic actor though.
This looks completely, utterly bland. This Grinch doesn't come off like one who hates Christmas enough to steal it- he's just kind of a petty asshole. That angle could work, if it were any other character, but the Grinch is his own thing, you really can't turn him into just another generic Illumination character and expect it to be a smooth transition.The thing that really gets to me, though? It's the fact that they're releasing it on November 9th, thus striking another blow for the Christmas season's unyielding push further and further back into the year. They could have at least waited until Thanksgiving/Black Friday weekend, there's precedent for that- but no, gotta get it out as early as possible, gotta milk that property for AT LEAST TWO FUCKING MONTHS. Hell, at this point, Halloween is the only holiday standing between us and holiday decorations going up in fucking October.Using the Grinch as the poster child for further extending and monetizing the holiday season is almost as ironic as when they used the new Lorax movie to advertise cars. But that's Illumination for you- no self-awareness, no sense of irony, and absolutely no scruples.
>>99105973Seriously how old is Happy at this point? I feel like I was in high school when that song came out.
>>99106379I feel like Funk town rock and mostly LMAO came out last year.
>>99105988>Fuck The MaskThat’s the plot of the Sequel
>>99106396The fuck.What was that
>>99105350There we go, that's more like it.
>>99106341THIS SUMMER IS GONNA BE
>>99105988Mask was awesome fuck you.
>>99102852Carrey's version is iconic, what the hell are you talking about you mongoloid
>>99106617Iconic like The Room is iconic, I guess. It was a flaming hunk of shit, and Jim Carrey is a one trick pony faggot.
>>99102843Well that's 3 minutes of my life I'm not getting back.
>>99102843>"hey guys what if Gru was the Grinch? XD">"give that man a raise!"what the actual literal unironic famalamin' fuck?
>>99106617Are we now ironically pretending that the carrey grinch movie wasn't terrible?
>>99106869Sorry buddy but the Carry Grinch wasn't just a movie. It was a statement on consumerism and actually had self-awareness. It knew what it was and never tried to hide it.
>>99106077>Zoophillia postingAnytime please.
>>99105579he isn't in this and has no correlation to panning out a tiny kids book to hour+ film
>>99106869You have to remember, that movie was made in the year 2000, and to this day, it's STILL one of the highest grossing holiday films ever made. It's not looked back on fondly, but back in the day, EVERYONE saw it. There are people on this site for whom the Jim Carrey Grinch was an integral part of their childhood Christmas experience. He's the definitive Grinch for an entire generation, and as we all know, nostalgia is completely impervious to criticism.
>>99106010It's too cute and safe for the Grinch
My sister loves the live action one more than the animated one. She also loves The Flash CW show and is 13.
>>99107130Are you and your sister close?
>>99106445zootopia we deserve but never got
>>99106297quit shoehorning zootopia into every conversation you fangirl
>>99107159I mean not terribly close but we're alright.
>>99102852Carrey grinch is fucking kino.neck yourself
>>99106377The weird thing is that the property can be milked by merchandise well before release, it could be released in december and have merch coming out in november and building up to its release but they decided to have the merch start up time and movie release in the same timingFuck captcha it took like 5 minutes to get past it.
>>99106835>what the actual literal unironic famalamin' fuck?stop posting like this, its obnoxious
>>99102852>Minions: Dr. Seuss Christmas Edition>better than peak-Carrey making the message fun and visually interesting for all ages
>>99107406Okely dokely Anon-irino.
I'm just weary for the day they make a canon Grinchgirl, either giving him a significant other and "the power of a woman's love overcomes a man's hate" or by making the grinch a woman on its own. It's happened to a decent amount of properties.
>>99107406memespeak is the only way to communicate in this shithole.
>>99103002my exact response as well
>>99105777Truman Show and Eternal Sunshine are fucking excellent films. Liar, Liar, Bruce Almighty, Dumb and Dumber, and Ace Ventura are decent comedies. Christmas Carol was a very uneven adaptation with some wonky CGI, but it has a few standout acting moments from Carrey.
>>99107425The Jim Carrey one sucked complete dick you doublenigger.
>>99102843the music is jarring, it should be more whimsical but instead they just put illuminations top hits
>>99107523It's less that and more that "what the fuck? no no, this fuck right here, what the actual?" is pure headache inducing and anyone who unironically posts it is retarded
>>99107600>hates memespeak>posts memespeakunironically activates the almonds boyo.
>>99107600>unironically postingYou're using just as bad of retarded internet terms as him, ya gaywad.
>>99107425The live action Grinch has a lot of problems... a LOT of problems, chief among them are the awful, padded writing, and the awful direction of Carrey by director Ron Howard (which is surprising, most of Howard's films are really well directed, but here he really misuses Carrey, undercutting all of his good emotional moments with QUICK JIM! DO SOMETHING WACKY! shtick).Case in point, the scene where the Grinch realizes the meaning of Christmas. It actually starts out as a really nice, subtle, emotional moment where the Grinch realizes maybe Christmas isn't about presents and greed, maybe it's about just being a decent fucking person... then Carrey clutches his chest and screaming and flailing around like he's having an epileptic fit and it completely kills the mood of the scene.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p8J-YmVs1j0&t=0m50s
>>99107631>>99107632Bad example, I hate ironic posts too but there's different levels, anyone who says it unironically is more likely to be an underage kid than someone just trying to be funny but realizing it's retarded.
Good things about the Carrey version:>Literally only CarreyBad things about the Carrey version:>fucking everything elseAs long as I don't have to listen to Cindy screech out another Oscar bait song about how she's become so DISILLUSIONED with Christmas at the ripe old age of like 8 and there's no animatronic muppet baby Grinch I'll be thoroughly whelmed by this.
>>99107606>t. Contrarian Faggot
>>99107670but thats funny and gets across he's not understanding what was happening, pretty much the same as christmas with TV when on show and magic dinner, newftres omeone must've asked
>>99107672Using the term ironic or unironic posting was what was called out. When you call someone a dipshit for saying what in the actual fuck while also saying you unironically do something is in same exact vein as adding stupid needless words.If you post something truthful, you're just posting. You're not unironically posting. It's a phrase just as irksome as the other faggot's shit you were trying to rail against.
>>99107685Carrey was godawful. We get it, you're wacky and do shit with funny faces and childlike physical humor. It's literally the only thing he does. Which is why he sucks.
>>99107741I don't ironically do anything, I just didn't elaborate the difference between the 2 types of shit that comes with ironically saying something obnoxious and unironically doing so.
>>99102843I have not seen either movie or read the book and I am still disgusted.
It'll be good. Remember the rule:>movies that look bad before release turn out to be great>movies that look good before release turn out to be terrible
>>99107685Get ready for the Christmas stealing scene to have a fucking pop/hip-hop rendition of 'You're a Mean One, Mr. Grinch' by Ke$ha
>>99107741>>99107770why are you arguing over shitposting on the internet?
>>99107770I unironically don't think you know what irony means.
>>99107827When did they ever use Ketchup?
>all these anons hating on JC grinchit was great, even if only because it gave me my christmas wrapping fetish
>>99104031Please keep my wife out of this shit thread. thanks.
>>99107823What about the Emoji movie?
>>99107830I wasn't much of an argument until I hate to explain what I meant and it extended my "stop being retarded" comment>>99107832I clearly do.

It's like if they decided to make a kid's book even more childish and found a new level of baby to pander to.But if only there were 5 grinch films instead of 3, where is my giant christmas husbando going to grape the sour??meanone mr grinch grnichmas there's like 31 different arc

>>99108224Excuse me? That has nothing do with grinch. Why do I get the crazy?
>>99104276A lot of studios forgot that shrek was supposed to be the 'anti-disney' movie with it's pop songs and gross out humor, and they just thought that's all it took to be a successful film without the context.
>>99104126NO ONE ASK WHY
>>99105841Jim Carrey's performance was definitely made with love, even in the kinda modern take on what Christmas meanskumquat is just here for the paycheck and I can't wait for it to crash and burn
Quick /co/, name one good thing about this movie so far.
>>99102843>Pop songs>Remix of classic songBad moveSo I guess in this movie he just likes to wonder in town and fuck with the whos? Kinda weak.>that figure skating sceneHad to close the video after that.>>99106341>>99106355>>99106528We are so fucked
>>99108379I'm like 3/4 sure there won't be a minion in it
>>99108379If I do watch it, I won't actually have to see Benedict Cumberbatch's face
>>99108379Visual direction is okay at least for the backgrounds and town
>>99108411Dubs of truth
>>99104276shrek's influence is like the animation equivalent of Mr. Bungle's and Primus' influence.Good on its own, but not good to be influenced by.
>>99108301So Shrek was to animated films what Watchmen was to comics?
>>99108379they've mostly abandoned Christmas which is a divisive holiday
>>99102843It looks so bland and uninspired. Say what you will about the live action version. But it had way more personality than anything I'm seeing in this trailer.

>>99108913Pretty good but the cursing felt gratuitous and makes this seem less believable to actually happen in real life, despite everything else being on point.
>>99108814i cant breathe
>>99108897I like how he's just suddenly far away dancing
>>99102852Oh fuck no. Carrey Grinch at least acted the part. Benny Grinch just seems mildly annoyed and has one of the dogs from Secret Life of Pets as his companion.
>>99108913I feel like I've missed half of the jokes, but that's rather amusing.
>>99109100There is literally nothing you can defend about the Ron Howard / Jim Carrey Grinch movie. Nothing.>actually the costuming was pretty good if you're into grotesque bodyhorror
>there are people who actually think the Jim Carrey movie is goodnostalgia is a hell of a drug
>>99109535That movie made me who I am today.

>>99102843It's dead, Jim.
>>99106377>Using the Grinch as the poster child for further extending and monetizing the holiday season is almost as ironic as when they used the new Lorax movie to advertise cars.Ah yes, "the only vehicle with the truffula tree seal of approval". I almost vomited when I saw that shameless fucking bullshit.

>>99103002Literally my first thought before starting the trailer was "It's going to have way epic modern-day references in it that will date the movie before it even comes out" and lo and behold. Illumination never disappoints.

>>99102852At least the Jim Carrey one comes from a place of actual artistic vision, making everything look all washed-out and plastic-y to compliment the theme of anti-consumerism.This literally looks like every other Illumination movie but with the Grinch. The cartoon is less cartoonish than the live-action film.
>>99114194Oh come on that's just a very specialized bondage thing, it's not that weird.
>>99102843As bad as it looks, you have to admit the snowman sucker punch was pretty good.
>>99107848anon... elaborate please
>>99108897Oh god I read all the lines in his voice.
>>99103002>>99103028I THINK that part of the joke is that the song is from Despicable Me 2, another Illumination movie.
>>99108814This fucking made it.
>>99104237The big problem is that we always end up relating to the Grinch.He's supposed to be the objective villain, but they assume that because we spend the most time with him he's supposed to be a likeable hero, even before his redemption.The main reason the OG Grinch special is the best/most faithful one (aside from lack of filler) is because the Grinch actually IS a mean piece of shit who bullies his dog and steals from perfectly friendly people.
>>99105777>"only good Jim Carrey movies">Not The Truman ShowAre you fucking sorry?
>>99110511How is it that the cartoon has less color and whimsey than the live-action one?

Why can't they just leave the original alone?
>>99102852The Jim Carrey one is so bad it's good though. It's really campy and fun and shitty.This Illumination one just looks bad, and not even "haha it's so bad you gotta watch it" like The Room but just bad bad.
>>99102843>Happy>A song that's already dated and will be even more dated when the movie actually comes out
>>99102852I like how they gave the Grinch a love interest in that movie
>>99114940No shit. This has always been Illumination's MO. They're too cheap to pay for a current hit.>ALL I DO IS WIN
>>99114922No, it's just bad.
>>99108379It's pretty but in a non-exciting way and Cabbagepatch will make a decent Grinch.
>>99108759I want to leech that sneetch.
>>99114922It's bad, as far as being an adaption of a children's classic goes, but Carrey himself managed to still have some pretty funny moments with his over the top performance. It at least manages to get a few laughs at least. Unlike Cat in the Hat or Lorax, which were generally just plain awful.
>>99102843This will never reach the level of perfection as the 2D animated short.Dr. Seuss properties deserve to be in 2D
>>99107848Gonna be honest I don't believe you.
>>99102843Cool Yogi Bear Movie.
>>99102843I don't think anything they make can thematically miss the mark as hard as the Lorax did. That film straight up personifies the ironic concept of filtering a wholesome environmental message through streamlined corporate greed to make something marketable and easily digestible for mass appeal. The worst part is it succeeded in making me think of going to IHOP every time that the commercials came on.
>>99112476Yeah that line was pretty great too
>>99102843>ten seconds in>BECAUSE I'M HAPPYIs this the only song that makes money for Illumination?
>>99114408This whole trailer feels like it could just be a Christmas themed despicable me movie
The marketing levels are high with this one. Sorry, Sherlock, but I hope you're making yourself some money with this one, because making someone else money is all you're going to be doing here.
>>99107827Kesha's been doing pretty well for herself, recently.
>>99110418>It wasn't even a hybrid or electric car. It was a fucking gas-guzzling SUV.What kind of god would allow someone to bee 100 wrong
>>99107827'scuse me, just gonna go grab my noose.
>>99105625How ba-aa-aa-aad could it be?
>>99110511Well, there IS ice in it.
>>99102843The movie feels like it's got less personality than the previous Grinch film, it's like everything is neutered to the hell compared to the last film.
>>99116740Out-of-context, that song's pretty good. It just sucks that it contains pretty much the ENTIRE representation of canonical story that exists within the movie and replaced a far heavier song.
>>99107579Imperfect and less-charming than Seuss would've wanted yes, but certainly had lots of good moments too.Unless you have no sense of enjoyment whatsoever. Or another fag who confuses contrarianism with "taste".
>>99104025According to the released plot summary, she's trying to catch Santa to thank him for helping her single mother, which probably means we'll end up with some "The Grinch becomes her stepdad" ending.>Academy Award® nominee Benedict Cumberbatch lends his voice to the infamous Grinch, who lives a solitary life inside a cave on Mt. Crumpet with only his loyal dog, Max, for company. With a cave rigged with inventions and contraptions for his day-to-day needs, the Grinch only sees his neighbors in Who-ville when he runs out of food.>Each year at Christmas they disrupt his tranquil solitude with their increasingly bigger, brighter and louder celebrations. When the Whos declare they are going to make Christmas three times bigger this year, the Grinch realizes there is only one way for him to gain some peace and quiet: he must steal Christmas. To do so, he decides he will pose as Santa Claus on Christmas Eve, even going so far as to trap a lackadaisical misfit reindeer to pull his sleigh.>Meanwhile, down in Who-ville, Cindy-Lou Who—a young girl overflowing with holiday cheer—plots with her gang of friends to trap Santa Claus as he makes his Christmas Eve rounds so that she can thank him for help for her overworked single mother. As Christmas approaches, however, her good-natured scheme threatens to collide with the Grinch’s more nefarious one. Will Cindy-Lou achieve her goal of finally meeting Santa Claus? Will the Grinch succeed in silencing the Whos’ holiday cheer once and for all?
>>99106396this wouldn't been ten times more effective if it just stopped when the kid runs off from the dad.
What is the Grinch's penis like? Does it have guard hairs? Barbs? A knot? Is it nine and a half feet long when fully extended from his spider-filled cloaca? Is it covered in moldy purple spots? Does it flare up after horfing out his Who Pudding all over the place, congealing into a plug that would silence the cheeriest caroler?
>>99116839>Been parent of almost 3 year old toddler>Becomes obsessed with the Chuck Jones version>Watch it pretty much every night until from Thanksgiving to New Year>He'll still randomly sing the song to this dayI'm dreading the realization that once the actually commercials start I'm going to end up having to take him to see it. It just sounds so boring.
>>99102843>Trailer starts with a pop song that's already outdatedGood lord, a few seconds in and it's already shit.
>>99106194I have never seen anyone defend The Lorax outside of one song that was cut presumably because it was too good for the movie and would have felt out of place.
This could have been so much worse. We're lucky Max isn't a Minion clone like I was expecting. It's not the neurotic characterization I wanted (not as a response to abuse from his master, but rather, because the master he loves is never happy and impossible to please), but at least it's not that.
>replacing Thurl Ravenscroft with this new guyThey could have at least picked someone who wasn't fucking awful.
>>99117262Biggering didn't necessarily exist in a vacuum in that earlier versions of the movie had a bit more bite.Like the kid's motivation for wanting a living tree was more about his own selfishness and wanting to own something nobody else had instead of wanting to get laid. Or a "Mindless consumerism goes across all political party boundaries" ending for the Onceler's "Everybody Needs a Thneed" song.
>>99117328He's alright. They definitely could have done better.
>>99102843>two out of place pop songs>dance sequence in trailerjesus christ
>>99116839Illumination needs to die.
>>99103028At least the Jim Carrey one had an original song that still gets airplay every year
>>99107769Truman Show and Eternal Sunshine say hi
Pros:>looks really nice. Not that big of a feat for a modern non-Disney CGI movie though. Not as good as Trolls or Boss Baby but there's still some good visuals>what little we heard of cumberbund's grinch seemed pretty good- sounded like a smarmy assholeCons>BECAUSE IM HAPPY>max looks like shit>a whole sequence of shopping>falling down used in place of a joke>dance sequence with ironic pop song
I'm going to go see it anyway. There aren't many protagonists I can relate to, and both previous Grinches are included in that small number. I know it's probably going to be bad, as much as I want it to be decent.
>>99107541Man on the Moon is also really good, and while the movie was badly received his performance in The Number 23 was really good too.
>>99117658Man in the Moon drove him nuts, it had to be good.
>>99102843The decision to make the Who's genuinely cheerful was a good one, and the decision to NOT have them be afraid of the Grinch was downright inspired. Too bad they'll fuck this up just like they did The Lorax.The only movie-worthy Seuss book left, IMO, is Solla Sollew. Here's hoping Illumination never touches it.
>>99117569>a whole sequence of shoppingIt was an alright sequence.
>>99107854I like your wife, she's got a fun play style.
>>99117380>There's a script out there for a Lorax that isn't complete shitIt hurts
'99117068It doesn't make much sense. Why bother living in such oppressive place?
>>99118088I don't think they can blow this as badly as they did the Lorax. The main issues with that were the hipster kid Once-ler and the fucking stupid addition of a second Once-ler to Once in his absence. The Grinch is still the Grinch (but I am mad he has normal eyes and teeth) at least.
>>99118088https://youtu.be/KeFaBvL72a8They should adapt this
>>99117380Given that the lyrics to Biggering are credited to the people who wrote the screenplay in the soundtrack's bootleg, I'm guessing it was written alongside the rest of a script.A script I'm dying to read.
>>99102843>>99115563>this styleso how long until Shad porn?

>>99105625>How bad could it possibly be?
>>99102852Imagine being this much of a pleb
>>99109512But let's be honest here- That film is leagues above whatever the fuck this movie's trying to be.And that's saying a lot considering Universal's behind both films. And the Carrey film has a doggy rimjob.
>>99108543Fuck off, kike
>>99110511Yeah I might have actually succeeded in kill myself if my bedroom had a cliff in it.

>>99105996>The war on Christmas gets in the way of him stealing ChristmasThis is actually pretty funny
>>99104513This - Seuss works best as short stories with simple morals. Seuss is charming and whimsical, not snarky and bombastic. Seuss is simple and subdued, not big and loud.Horton the elephant is a simple but earnest who just wants to do the right thing, keep his word, and look out for the little guy... not a spastic weirdo doing kung fu flips and spouting off one-liners.The Lorax is an old, wise, world-weary creature who cautions and pleads with the Onceler to take care not to let overambition and overconsumption destroy the environment... not a fat, snarky, homicidal douche with a North Jersey accent.The Grinch is a grumpy old curmudgeon whose lonely life and envy of the Whos turns him into a despicable humbug around the holidays... not an autistic oddball with ice skating fantasies.

I really don't understand how anyone can think the Jim Carrey Grinch movie is outright bad. Is it as good as the Chuck Jones short? Hell no. It's still a solid movie that does a decent job at turning a short children's movie into a full length film. It keeps the core of the story intact and the additions to the story in order to flesh it out offer believable reasons for the various characters' motivations. The set and costume design really carry the film, everything about it is just so inventive. A lot of the actors do a great job too, Carrey in particular just has so much energy and commitment in his role as the Grinch and offers an iconic take on the character. I think the reason a movie like the Grinch became fairly popular while the Cat in the Hat is regarded mostly as an abomination is because there was some genuine heart behind the Grinch.
>>99107685The sets were really good
