  1. So many animated movies on the go these days. I was terrified when I saw the Grinch reboot (love the original!) but Cumberbatch made me less nervous. We'll see!

  4. It's nice seeing Mary and Joseph not depicted as white people. The movie sounds like a cute tale. The Grinch can just have my money. I'm sold. Really love animation. I was a bit curious about Trolls but that trailer made it a rental at best. Sigh.
