    4.0 out of 5 stars "Everybody Needs a Thneed!" March 3, 2012
    Format:DVD
    Based upon the book by Dr. Seuss (whose name is officially part of the title), THE LORAX has been contemporized a bit making it accessible to not only super-environmental-types, but to those who were raised upon conservation and not environmentalism. In THE LORAX, Ted (Zac Efron) is a twelve-year-old boy who lives in the plasticized, walled city of Thneedville. Ted is in love with a teenage girl named Audrey (Taylor Swift). Audrey doesn't quite fit in Thneedville and paints the back of her house full of colorful trees which no longer exist. She longs to see a real tree and Ted becomes determined to find one for her. During dinner one night, Ted's Grammy Norma (Betty White) tells Ted that in order to find out what happened to the trees and if there's another one to be found, he needs to speak with the Once-ler (Ed Helms) who lives outside the city walls. Ted has never been outside the city, but sets out on a mission to meet the Once-ler and find a tree. He succeeds in finding the creature on the edge of town and the Once-ler tells Ted his story of how he started life off as an industrious, young man with a heart who just wanted to be a success, how he found a valley of paradise, and how he met The Lorax (Danny Devito). Before the story is through, the Once-ler's tale will merge with Ted's and perhaps revive the valley again.

    Visually, THE LORAX is stunning. Both the natural beauty of the paradise valley and the plastic artificiality of Thneedville are full of bright and beautiful colors. These are contrasted by the present day greys of the world outside of Thneedville, the world that the Once-ler created.

    The story stays fairly close to Dr. Seuss' original tale. However, there are a few differences.

    In the age of Hollywood's seeming endless films aimed against greed, consumerism, and environmental destruction, "The Lorax" is not to be outdone. Unlike the other films with hidden messages, this one is very direct. The voice of Danny Devito and Betty White made the film very special as you can see them in those roles. The film incorporates some of the original Dr. Seuss poetry to convey the message, but doesn't bog down the film with it as to lose the target audience who may not enjoy it as much as we did when we read the original first edition hard covers in the third grade.

    The story is about the Once-ler (what's in a name? Ed Helms) who cuts down all the trees and at times looking like Elton John playing the Pinball Wizard. He did this to make the Thneed (a versatile Huggie) that no one wanted until a pretty girl wore one. Ted Wiggins (Zac Efron) wants to obtain a tree because the pretty redhead Audry (Taylor Swift) wants one. Sort of like Brad Pitt suddenly caring about hungry third world kids. There are musical numbers and numerous messages about consumer marketing, greed, bottled water, and the environment. SNL's Nasim Pedrad did the voice of the Once-ler's mom, reminding me of the grandmother in the old Carol Burnett series.

    Perhaps the best message of the film is that individuals can make a difference. As an adult I enjoyed the film.

    1.0 out of 5 stars Great Book....Horrible movie November 25, 2012
    By Jina
    Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
    I loved reading this book to my daughter. I loved its message of nature's beauty, bounty, and importance, along with each individual's responsibility to do their part to maintain it. The movie, on the other hand was filled with frenetic noise, pointless activity, an emphasis on evil bad-guys instead of personal responsibility for lack of long-range planning. I would not recommend this movie to anyone. I wish I could apologize personally to Dr. Seuss for watching this degrading version of his wonderful book.

    1.0 out of 5 stars Overdone version of a Dr. Seuss Classic January 10, 2013
    Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
    Being a fan of Dr. Seuss, I was looking forward to watching this animated film. It was a huge disappointment. I contrast this experience with re-watching a Charlie Brown Christmas, which was made in 1965. Although some of the animation was interesting, they went way overboard trying to make this movie into a in-you-face, fast action film. Maybe this is the current status of animation? Anyway, as a result, the filmakers of The Lorax completely lost the subtlety in Dr. Seuss's message. While I understand they need to stretch a short book that you can read in minutes into a feature length film, they probably shouldn't have tried. In my opinion, they just killed the entire book.

    1.0 out of 5 stars "Biggered" to death November 5, 2012
    By Einsatz
    Format:DVD
    My opinion of The Lorax stayed in flux as I watched the movie unravel. Sometimes I cringed at how heavy-handed they were with Dr. Seuss' simple message, sometimes I was just dismayed by the overabundance of nasty characters they invented and imposed upon his story. Too many times I wondered where Dr. Seuss was in this messy adaptation of his book. He seemed to be missing. The reason for this became clear in the bonus feature. Apparently, the filmmakers felt it necessary to attach things not Seuss to the story because it was somehow deficient as it was; requiring their extensions. One of them even had the gall to call it a homage. But tampering is tampering; clearly they were dissatisfied with most things in the book, especially the notion of having to adapt Seuss' two-dimensional drawings into......two-dimensional drawings in motion. A lot of work was required to "make them come alive." Again, a slur against Dr. Seuss' work. If they didn't like the book, why bring it to the screen? Why add dopey songs that were less than memorable and subvert the plot? Why ignore the language, what makes Seuss' work so distinctive? There was a reason Dr. Seuss kept his book somber from page one to the end. His point was concise, not easily forgotten. But they had to turn everything into a carnival atmosphere complete with slapstick, a romance, a city, and another villain that wasn't even required. When you overhaul someone else's work to this degree you're not honoring their work, you're desecrating it.

    Anyone else have problems playing the Bluray?
    I can't play the Bluray disk on my Playstation 3. It doesn't even recognize the disk, and I also think the transparent disk the cause.
