MOVIE REVIEW This
week's reviewed movie is:
Dr. Seuss' The Lorax is
about environmental impact and shows destruction of
natural resources that
change the quality of life, making a town totally
The critters and people purchase containers of fresh
air to breathe.
The big message is to show how to restore their town
back to when they had trees.
The children will enjoy this animated film, and the
adults will be glad they came along.
I am NOT the Lorax, I don't talk for the trees,
I review movies, So listen to me,
This version of greenery, Is NOT from the Doc,
His story was bleaker, And this one is schlock!
With the environment in the shape it's in, you'd
think an overly preachy tale of the destruction of
would have more impact; but Dr. Seuss' ecological
forecast gets a watered-down treatment in this
latest movie retelling.
It's still a colorfully animated version, but with
subplots, poorly written songs, and very little
cleverly written rhyming language, it loses
something in the translation.
Dr. Seuss is back on the
big screen, after major box office success with How The Grinch Stole Christmas
and Horton Hears
Now, this time around comes a pleasing and
meaningful version of his 1971 environmental warning
called The Lorax.
The outcome is a good kid's movie that doesn't hold
back on sending a message about care of the planet.
This is informative and valuable advice for
of all ages.
This film is simply warm and wise and witty family
entertainment that is imaginary fun for everyone.
