LET ME COME BACK TO THE 'SHROOM!
Good movie? Bad movie? Discuss.
It's agenda is so simplistic and uninvested, though. The original book was ten times as invested in it's moral, and the 1972 TV special at least acknowledged the opposing side. This, the bad guy is just Captain Planet villain, the Once-ler is WAY too sympathetic, while the Lorax WAY too pushy, and the animals way to annoying to care about. The "devastation" of losing their homes is sqished down into a 2-3 minute villain song montage, so we're not really given much to sympathize with them.Augie Doggie said:Propaganda!!!
Well, not really. An OK movie, but a movie with an agenda nonetheless.
I am, what Lindsay said is pretty much true, what more do I have to say about it? Besides, even if I didn't see Lindsay's review, would that make what I said any less wrong?Mason said:Um Smashgoom
did you just type out exactly what the Nostalgia Chick said in her review? No offense but think for yourself.
You have just come to the sad realization that America's kids are getting dumber by the minute.Smashgoom202 said:I don't like the idea of dumbing down movies for the sake of kids, because really, what does that say about kids and how we should raise them?
Well... Yeah, except WALL-E does it better. The corporation in that movie wasn't evil, the CEO was just too over-optimistic for his good, and greatly underestimated the problem he created, unlike the villain in The Lorax, who's just evil for the Hell of it.MnSG said:Oddly, one person stated that you're better off seeing WALL-E, even though both The Lorax, and WALL-E, give you a visual on what would happen if you don't respect nature.
