Movie Reviews

The colors would make anyone a Grinch!

(3 out of 5 stars)

"I have always loved this classic Dr. Seuss animated film and awaited its arrival with great anticipation. And while the story is as endearing as ever, I am disappointed that the coloring on this transfer is terrible. The backgrounds are garish and too bright and the Grinch is the color of mustard instead of his true green color shown on the front of the case. In addition, the pencil tests are far too few and do not add any value to the disc. It is hard to focus on the splendid attributes of this title because of its few, yet glaring oversights. My advice is to wait for a better transfer to come out, or perhaps seek out the previous version on dvd which may be of better quality."

"I agree with both Chicago, IL and Boston, Ma reviews. The crystal clear DVD viewing of 'How the Grinch Stole Christmas'was great but, WHY is the grinch not in his true green color! There are other greens in the picture so why not the grinch! Very perplexing we thought and it made the viewing very disappointing. WHAT GIVES! I would highly recommend buying the VHS version due to this disturbing error on the DVD version. I suppose the people who like the DVD version don't realize that the grinch in this version is an impostor! Even when he's green on the DVD cover AND main menu screen!"
Embodies the true spirit of Christmas!

"HANDS DOWN my all time favorite holiday special. When I find myself starting to hate the whole Christmas season [the crowded stores, combat drivers, and the noise, noise, noise....] I take the time to watch this show. Then I feel I have the stength of ten grinches plus two and the true meaning of Christmas comes shining through! From the memorable songs to the Chuck Jones animation. The brilliant casting of Boris Karloff to narrate and the uncredited singing of Carl Ravenscroft [voice of Tony the Tiger] for "You're a mean one mr. Grinch" really make this a great holiday special with a lesson for us all. I also have the privalage of working with a girl whose great uncle was Theodor Geisel [Dr. Seuss]. Although she never met him, I still think that's pretty cool!"
A grinch of a different (and wrong) color

"My awful rating of this DVD is stricly intended to be that of the physical quality of this video transfer. The Grinch himself is worthy of five, six, a galaxy of stars!But I must echo the comments of those viewers who have complained of the awful colors and hues of the DVD transfer. The Grinch is supposed to be GREEN not a dirty yellow. The colors are just fine on my old laserdisc version which I had hoped to replace with this new edition. No such luck. I'm hanging on to my laserdisc till my player gives out and I dumped this abomination on ebay as fast as I could. I did feel a little guilty about sticking someone else with this turkey, but as some of the other reviews indicate, some people just can't tell the real deal from a shoddy copy. Well, if Whoville hadn't been filled with people like that, the Grinch would never have brought off his coup!My advice is, wait a while and hope that a new "remastered" version will be brought out eventually, so the publisher can have a facesaving way to correct their error."
