Reviews: THE GRINCH / THE NUTCRACKER AND THE FOUR REALMS

J Bryant and AngieBee discuss THE GRINCH featuring the voices of Benedict Cumberbatch, Pharrell Williams, and Kenan Thompson; and THE NUTCRACKER AND THE FOUR REALMS starring Mackenzie Foy, Keira Knightley, Helen Mirren, and Morgan Freeman.

THE GRINCH

For their eighth fully animated feature, Illumination and Universal Pictures present THE GRINCH, based on Dr. Suess’ beloved holiday classic. THE GRINCH tells the story of a cynical grump (voiced by Benedict Cumberbatch) who goes on a mission to steal Christmas, only to have his heart changed by a young girl’s generous holiday spirit.

Brad Dourif was replaced by Pharrell Williams as the narrator. (IMDB)

THE NUTCRACKER AND THE FOUR REALMS

All Clara (Mackenzie Foy) wants is a key – a one-of-a-kind key that will unlock a box that holds a priceless gift. A golden thread, presented to her at godfather Drosselmeyer’s (Morgan Freeman) annual holiday party, leads her to the coveted key—which promptly disappears into a strange and mysterious parallel world. It’s there that Clara encounters a soldier named Phillip (Jayden Fowora-Knight), a gang of mice and the regents who preside over three Realms: Land of Snowflakes, Land of Flowers and Land of Sweets. Clara and Phillip must brave the ominous Fourth Realm, home to the tyrant Mother Ginger (Helen Mirren), to retrieve Clara’s key and hopefully return harmony to the unstable world

Lasse Hallström completed principal photography, but, due to him being unavailable, Joe Johnston took charge for 32 days of reshoots. Hallström returned to oversee post-production. (IMDB)
