The Lorax, anyone? I’ll be seeing it an an ASIFA-Hollywood screening next week, so I’ll reserve judgement. I’m not trying to be negative, but the L.A. Times‘ Kenneth Turan says “most of it not very good and not in keeping with the spirit of the Seuss original.” Claudia Puig disagrees in her 3-stars (out of four) write-up in USA Today, saying “it remains faithful to the spirit of Seuss.” A.O. Scott at the NY Times sums it up this way: “The movie is a noisy, useless piece of junk!”
How about you? Per usual, our talkback posts are open to those who have seen the film in a theater, and have a thoughtful opinion–pro or con.
