    Eh. At least it's animated. Though I still want a stop-motion Cat in the Hat.

    Right? The Jim Carrey version is awesome.

    The Ron Howard/Carrey one was very surreal and subversive, panned as it was by some. This is basically a reboot, call it what it is.

    Yeah, I like the Carrey Grinch.

    The Myers Cat in the Hat is absolutely appalling, though.

    I too would rather see Cat in the Hat get some sort of redemption after that Mike Myers disaster..

    I'll probably see it, since the Grinch is one of my favorite stories. But it's pretty... redundant.

    Every new idea is just an old idea tweaked just enough to make it appear different.

    Yeah, but they're not even tweaking it. It's just the original story redone, possibly in CGI. Whoopty-freakin'-doo.

    If it's going to be a feature film, there's no way it'll just be the original story. It would be 25 minutes long. If that.

    The Carrey/Howard Grinch came out when I was in kindergarten, and I watched an rewatched it around the holidays just as much as the cartoon version. I was obsessed with all things Seuss except for the Mike Myer's Cat in the Hat movie. Seriously, **** that movie, and it's creepy Michael Jackson makeup too.

    And is this new director's last name really Candeland?

    Obviously they didn't learn from the last time. There isn't enough material here for a feature.

    Seriously, I don't mind a remake every now and then, because sometimes it actually leads to a film I enjoy more then the original (Oceans 11 for example). But this is ridiculous. We already have an animated film, and a live action film that was pretty popular too. I mean, what else is there to do? The live action film already expanded on the story, is this new cartoon going to expand on it...again? Or are they going to just do a shot for shot Psycho-style remake?

    Can't wait for the book based on the CGI remake based on the live-action film based on the 2D animated film based on the book.

    Now who do you want to voice the Grinch this time around? Carrey already tried to do the Boris Karloff impression, I'd want to switch up the vocals and make him not as goofy sounding. He still acts goofy as he does in the cartoon, but the voice would be a contrast.
