I love 'The Lorax', Hater are going to Hate (by licia_chan_666)
'The Lorax' was awesome.*MIGHT BE SPOILER*. The musical numbers was entertaining, and taught the message of the book. It was nice to see the Once-Ler as human; it showed him as just a normal person who made bad decision, and not just a faceless monster who hated trees. The boy motivation in the beginning might had be selfish, but he soon wanted the seed not for the girl but because the world needed the trees. The spirit of Dr. Seuss was in this movie. The art, even in 3-D, stay true to the Dr's. Even his message was there. Many fail to remember that the original children's <more>
book, and 30 min animated short was just that. In order to make the 89min film, extras needed to be added. Which they were able to do very well.Overall, don't believe the reviews that people have posted about 'The Lorax'. People were looking for something bad in the movie since it was announce they were making it. When they couldn't find anything they made some up. I say go out and see the movie for yourself, and leave the haters behind. "Unless Someone Like You Cares a Whole Awful Lot Nothing's going to get Better. It's not." ~Once-Ler
This movie sure brings back childhood nostalgia (by Paranoia_RockNRoller)
I personally loved the movie. Its rendition of the Lorax is actually pretty good considering how bad filmmakers ruin books. The thing that I have noticed among the reviews is that either people have or haven't read the original story. If they have read it they expect it to be JUST like the book, but lets be realistic. Dr.Seuss's original story was short and in order to expand it into a feature film they had to add many things. And to the people that plan to see it but don't know the original story go read it. Or Google the original 30 min movie. It will help you gain insight into <more>
the story a little bit better. My only complaint about the movie is that they glossed over the names of the animals. That was something I loved as a kid. They say "Barbaloot" like once, but its not really that big a deal. Its a good movie for kids and it's message rings pretty clear. Don't let a couple sour reviews ruin it for you.
11 Year Old and I Dr. Seuss Fans Loved It (by charitydugood)
I can't believe well, yes I can that people gave this a bad review. I was afraid I was going to be disappointed when I saw the Lorax, based on some reviews, but I wasn't at all. My 11 year old and I both loved the movie, she laughed out loud at many parts although I have to admit she does do that a lot watching movies and we left very pleased that we saw it.Background: I grew up on Dr. Seuss, my six kids grew up with Dr. Seuss. We love Dr. Seuss even as adults. We've read the book, we've seen the original movie. I have two vegetarian older daughters, we are environmentally <more>
conscious. Also, we like musicals and my father was a music teacher - so finding out it was a musical was not a disappointment. There was definitely NOT a lot of musical numbers. If you hate musicals, I think the songs are infrequent enough that you can groan through it and let your kid enjoy the movie. That said, despite all the reviews on bad music, we thought the songs were lively and fun and cute. You're not gonna go out and buy a record for it, but it fit the movie for the kids it was targeted to.Like another reviewer said: THIS IS A MOVIE FOR KIDS!! As with any movie, it's geared toward a certain age group. People who take two-year olds to the theater must be crazy, taking them to see this movie is no exception. Granted, there's cute fuzzy bears, but there's a story being told and a lesson - definitely geared toward elementary/pre-teens, not the yo gabba gabba crowd. Your toddler or active pre-schooler will not sit through this.My opinion is also based on the fact that we do not watch a lot of movies or TV, I'm a firm believer that kids should be outside playing , and we are certainly not film or animation connoisseurs. I can see how someone used to intense-graphics and action-packed films would get bored with this. It is a story. If you like kid stories, you will like this. We did not find it boring, I thought it was well told, and it held our interest all the way through.Is it like the original? There's a lot different, a little similar. I don't think I've ever seen a movie that was like the book. Book is always better. Contrary to what another reviewer said about no rhyming, there are rhymes and some book quotes in the movie.When they redid Cat in the Hat, I didn't like it, didn't like what they did with the Cat character at all, but my kids did. I liked The Lorax, and my daughter did. The others are in college and haven't seen it yet...but they will I'm sure. I'm somewhat sensitive to violence and scariness in movies but not overly so , and I feel this is safe to take your kids to if they get scared easy. There's occasional moments when I had to roll my eyes up and think "did X really have to punch X at that moment" - but it's not violent or scary at all. Your kid won't go home with nightmares or shooting people. Maybe they'll even plant a tree.If you have elementary/pre-teen kids I highly recommend this movie for you and your kids.
Finally, an animation I can watch more than once! (by frankman777)
I'm a little dumbstruck as to why the ratings for "The Lorax" are so low. I usually decide on which movies to watch based on their IMDb ratings, and so unfortunately only got around to watching it a couple of days ago. In a number of reviews I had read previously, there were smacks of political overtones, blah, blah, blah. Are you serious?! Take the movies at face value and enjoy it! The songs were brilliant, the plot was fast-moving and didn't allow for a dull moment. I watched it with my 4-year-old daughter, and she has an eye for good movies. She watched "The <more>
Lorax" for the 5th time yesterday. I like bloody TV series like Dexter, the overly sarcastic "Doctor House" and the sexually explicit "Game of Thrones"... and I absolutely love d "The Lorax". Give me more of the same. It was freaking funny, entertaining and endearing all in one.Put aside your preconceived socio political notions and what you think the movie should be about... and watch it for its entertainment value. Nothing more, nothing less.
The Lorax was surprisingly awesome. (by ashmenm-448-184052)
I was so happy with this movie, I knew I had to see it but I was hesitant. As most reviewers have said this is one of Dr. Suess's best books and how can that possibly translate properly to a movie. Well as hesitant as I was to watch The Lorax I was curious. I watched this with my 2 1/2 year- old daughter and I loved it and what's more my daughter loved it which is more important than what I think of it anyway. Everyday since we got this on DVD my daughter pulls it off the shelf and says "mommy let's watch the Lorax." But as most parents know already your kids have their <more>
favorites and my daughter won't sit through movies that she doesn't like, this seems to become one of those favorites. To also make it clear my daughter is familiar with the book as well she has me read it almost every night. Both book and movie drive the same message across in slightly different but effective ways. I loved this and thought it was an excellent artistic interpretation of the wonderfully written Lorax by Dr. Suess. I only hope that after all the books turned to movies recently people can start to understand that the book and movie are separate, but this never seems to be understood.There will always be discrepancies between book and movie. The main thing is that this movie is wonderful despite the differences.
Sometimes change is a good thing... (by theantimonyelement)
...in this case, changes from the book/original TV short. A lot of people have been lamenting the "frame story" this movie adds in, as well as the idea of making the Once-ler a human character. As far as the frame goes, it's done pretty well. It's a bit flat but perfectly enjoyable for younger kids. Making the Once-ler human, though? BRILLIANT. Hear me out. The original Once-ler was a faceless force of destruction, a shadowy embodiment of greed. This Once-ler is just a stupid kid with a dream, a guy who wants to change the world. He's not evil, but he lets his success <more>
get to his head, and that brings about his own downfall and the destruction of the forest. That's FANTASTIC, and here's why: that's how the world really is! Companies don't sit around all day cackling about how much smog they're pumping into the atmosphere; it's a process, and something that happened gradually. Obliviousness is just as dangerous as maliciousness, and that's a really powerful lesson. This can happen to YOU if you're not careful; anybody can hurt the planet if they don't pay attention. That's a rare lesson, and one I'm really pleased to see in this movie. So, is it silly and stupid sometimes? Yes, of course. But it's colorful and exuberant, and in a lot of ways I think it really captured the "Seuss-ness" that similar remakes have missed. There's nothing offensive about it besides the miserable marketing and my little brother enjoyed it as a fun movie. I enjoyed it for giving us a deeper--and in my opinion, very powerful--character type: the accidental villain, the everydude who makes a horrible mistake that the environment suffers for. So take that as you will...but overall, I found myself liking this a lot more than I expected. Definitely worth a watch.
Much, much better then I was expecting. Great for kids, fun for adults. Fun for all ages. A must see family movie. I say A (by cosmo_tiger)
"Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better, it's not." Ted Efron is just like any boy. Rides around on his bike trying to impress the love of his life Audrey Swift . Her dream is to see a real live tree. The city they live in is made of plastic and air is sold in bottles. When Ted's grandma White tells him of a man called the Once-ler Helms he risks everything to go and talk to him. I have to admit the only reason I really watched this is because my daughter wanted to see it. I am actually glad she forced me to go because I really <more>
enjoyed it. There is enough adult stuff mixed in to make it enjoyable for everyone and not just kids. Danny DeVito being cast as the Lorax is genius and actually makes it funnier. I expected this to be a total "Save the world from humans" type movie but while the message was there it didn't seem preachy and was more funny then anything. If you are looking for a good family movie this is one of the best ones to come out in a while. Overall, much, much better then I expected and one of the best family movies in the last few years. I give it an A, my daughter gives in an A+.
Bursting with colour and life, this witty, entertaining and unexpectedly thoughtful adaptation of Dr. Seuss' environmental fable is great family entertainment (by moviexclusive)
If Dr. Seuss were alive, he would have been 108th on March 2nd, and this colourful adaptation of his 1971 illustrated children's book is just the befitting tribute to him. Not only is it joyous hilarity for the whole family, but it preserves the cautionary message at the heart of its source, combining the artistry of modern-day animation with the weird and wonderful elements of what was apparently Dr. Seuss' favourite book for a delightful and unexpectedly thoughtful experience.And that is really no small feat, as fans of the author can attest- Hollywood has had a hit-and-miss record <more>
with the Seuss, bungling terribly in recent years with Mike Myers' 'The Cat in the Hat', before redeeming itself with the 2008 animated 'Horton Hears A Who'. It's no coincidence therefore that the writers of 'Horton'- Ken Daurio and Cinco Paul- are once again the creative scripting force behind this adaptation, and once again the duo demonstrate their sharp Seussian sensibilities in what is possibly the author's most controversial work.Indeed, the story of a reclusive hermit known as the Once-Ler voiced here by Ed Helms who recounts his encounter with a strange orange creature known as the Lorax that had huge yellow eyebrows and a moustache like Yosemite Sam was also a pro-conservation and anti- consumerist fable that courted its fair share of detractors when it was first published and still does so today. Of course, these are also different times today, when concerns about climate change and the environment have crept into both the social and political sphere.To expand the short story to feature-length, there is now a backstory to the 12-year-old boy who visits the Once-Ler- named Ted Zac Efron as a nice nod to the Dr. Seuss whose real name was Theodor Grissel , this jolly teenager has but one purpose, to get a living tree and win the affection of his sweet high-school age neighbour Audrey Taylor Swift . Both Ted and Audrey live in the totally artificial town of Thneedville, where everything including the trees is made of plastic and the people are oblivious to the gray desolate wasteland outside of their cocooned city.With some handy advice from a surprisingly sprightly Grammy Norma voiced by Betty White , Ted sees firsthand the grim polluted world outside of Thneedville on his way to visit the Once-Ler. Once there, the Once-Ler recounts his folly as a young and ambitious entrepreneur who stumbled upon the beautiful Truffula Valley abounding with candy- coloured lollipop-style Truffula trees, Humming-Fish and cub-like Barbaloots. It's as far from the Truffula Ted's seen as can be, and director Chris Renaud pulls out all the stops to make sure that it is a gorgeous eye-popping visual feast.The first tree Ted falls summons the Lorax, a guardian of nature who tells Ted that he speaks for the trees and implores him to spare a thought for the forest creatures whose livelihood depends on them. For a while, Ted appears to pay heed to the Lorax, but when his knitted garment he calls the thneed becomes an unforeseen sensation in town, greed takes over and it isn't long before the entire valley is decimated.It is a cautionary eco-fable all right, and there is a clever metaphor here in how something so sought after like the thneed can be so quickly and easily forgotten. There is also added relevance in what happens after, as another entrepreneurial mind quickly takes over by supplying bottled fresh air to the people of Thneedville and becoming the town's unofficial mayor in the process. Opportunity presents itself in calamity, but how we make use of it is yet something else altogether- that is the lesson Daurio and Paul make as they set up O'Hare Rob Riggle and his two bulky bodyguards as the nemeses Ted has to defeat in a thrilling action-packed finish.The additions will no doubt entertain the kids, but older audiences familiar with the books will be glad to know that the Seussian spirit is well and alive in this zany rollicking adventure. Reverential too is the visual cues that the movie takes from Seuss- both in terms of the curvy undulating lines and shapes as well as the bright colours- and like "Horton", you'll know when you see it that you're in his world. Deserving of mention as well is the excellent voice cast assembled for the film. Efron conveys youthful naivety as much as Swift, while Helms gives the Once-Ler its necessary idiosyncrasies as well as an unexpected depth lamenting the folly of his past. But the true firecracker here is DeVito, returning after some years of being sidelined in Hollywood to tip-top form as the Lorax. There is verve and edge in every line of DeVito's delivery, crackling and popping as much as the colours do in every frame.There is also plenty for the kids to embrace, especially the minion-like creatures of the forest courtesy most likely of Renaud- we dare you to resist falling in love with the three aptly named Humming-Fish and the Barbaloots. The stereoscopic treatment here is also a treat and even more so in IMAX , lending the Seussian-scapes a lush vibrant feel and the action sequences an added dimension of excitement. But of course this is nary just harmless diversion for the kids, and the true weight of this animation is its environmental message of conservation told in a simple- but not simplistic- manner to be understood by audiences of all ages. It is an adaptation Dr. Seuss would very likely be proud of if he were still around, in no small measure because it echoes Seuss' essential plea summarised right at the end: "Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing's going to get better. It's not."www.moviexclusive.com
