The Lorax

DR. SEUSS’ THE LORAX will arrive on Blu-ray™ 3D Combo Pack and Blu-ray™ Combo Pack (both sets featuring DVD, Digital Copy and UltraViolet™) on August 7, 2012 from Universal Studios Home Entertainment.
 
So I got to preview this DVD before it came out in the stores, my first impression, this was a GREAT movie!  But before I watched the movie, my kids and I read the book! The Lorax is a children's book written by Dr. Seuss which was published in 1972. It is mainly about the environment and the Lorax, who speaks for the trees against the Once-ler.I want to say thank you to Click Communications and Universal Studios Home Entertainment for letting me watch this awesome family movie.

It was really cute, and my youngest child loved it, all my kids loved it but S loved the part about pancakes, and she actually remembered the IHOP special was running when the movie was out about the seeds, she was like I still want to get a packet of seeds.  I liked the part when the Lorax was trying to get ride on the Onceler.

So the whole movie is about a Twelve-year-old boy named Ted will do anything to find a real live Truffula Tree in order to impress the girl of his dreams. So the girl wants a real live tree. So his grandmother tells him a story. A young boy residing in a polluted, grim world visits a strange creature called the Once-ler who lives in such seclusion that he never appears in full and only his limbs are shown. He pays the Once-ler fifteen cents, a nail, and the shell of a great-great-great grandfather snail to explain why the world is in such a run-down state. The Once-ler explains to the boy that he arrived in a beautiful, cheerful world containing happy, playful fauna that spent their days romping around blissfully among "Truffula trees." 

The Once-ler begins to cut down the truffula trees, thinking they will help him craft Thneeds. The Lorax, appears from the stump of a truffula tree. He "speaks for the trees, for the trees have no tongues" and warns the Once-ler of the consequences of cutting down the truffula trees, but the Once-ler ignores him. Soon the once beautiful land becomes polluted and the animals leave to find more hospitable habitats. Eventually the final Truffula tree is cut down, and without Truffulas the Once-ler cannot make any more Thneeds. This leads to the closure of Once-ler's factory and the disappearance of the Lorax. 

The Once-ler lingers on in his crumbling residence, living in seclusion and remorse, while pondering over a message the Lorax left behind: a stone slab etched with the word "Unless". The Once-ler now realizes that the Lorax means that unless someone cares, the situation will not improve. The Once-ler gives the boy the last Truffula seed and encourages him to plant it so that Truffula trees can return to this damaged environment. 

Here is what I got to review: The DR. SEUSS’ THE LORAXBlu-ray™ 3D Combo Pack will also include three brand new mini-movies

  2. Not seen the movie yet. Hubby wasn't sure what the movie was about when we were talking about it. Our kids are grown! But Dr Seuss is great. Thanks for stopping by my blog and being a follower. Yeh, read of your work and that's great. Way to go! I know someone at Fort Bragg. Daniel is a medic and is from here in Oregon. He just recently got married. So have been following him on facebook! Take care and God bless!
