5.0 out of 5 stars Dr. Seuss' The Lorax 2D (blu ray)...great audio/video transfer with exceptional value... fantastic bargain at $24.99!!!
VIDEO:

Dr. Seuss's The Lorax arrives at blu ray with MPEG-4 AVC 1080p 1.85:1 encode. Although it isn't a Pixar grade presentation, nevertheless, this transfer is still a vivid success. Colour quality is particularly outstanding and punchy, with the rampant oranges, yellow and blues, popping off the screen. Sharpness and fine details are also very striking and...

3.0 out of 5 stars The Lorax
Not quite as good as the book. It had the opportunity to make this an eye opening visual experience for little ones and it failed. The moral of the story was lost. It was a disappointment.

(TOP 10 REVIEWER)    (#1 HALL OF FAME)    (REAL NAME)   
This review is from: Dr. Seuss' The Lorax/ Dr. Seuss' Le Lorax (Bilingual) [Blu-ray + DVD + Digital Copy] (Blu-ray)
VIDEO:

Dr. Seuss's The Lorax arrives at blu ray with MPEG-4 AVC 1080p 1.85:1 encode. Although it isn't a Pixar grade presentation, nevertheless, this transfer is still a vivid success. Colour quality is particularly outstanding and punchy, with the rampant oranges, yellow and blues, popping off the screen. Sharpness and fine details are also very striking and clean. Black levels are inky and consistent from start to finish. (5/5)

AUDIO:

This DTS-HD 5.1 Master Audio sound mix is exceptional and an all-out stunner. Dialogue is clear and audible throughout, and the design of this lossless presentation engages surrounds exceptionally well, lending the movie an enveloping, engaging presence that is really impressive. Fidelity is sensationally dynamic, and high- and low-ends are replicated firmly and convincingly. The voices of various characters are also well chosen and simply outstanding: Danny DeVito (The Lorax), Ed Helms (The Once-ler), Zac Efron (Ted), the lovely Taylor Swift (Audrey) and Betty White (Grammy Norma). (5/5)

STORYLINE:

A 12-year-old boy searches for the one thing that will enable him to win the affection of the girl of his dreams. To find it he must discover the story of the Lorax, the grumpy yet charming creature who fights to protect his world.

TRIVIA:

The Lorax has an estimated budget of $70 million, but grossed $312 million worldwide.

The characters of Ted and Audrey are named after Dr. Seuss (whose real name was Theodor Seuss Geisel) and his second wife Audrey Geisel.

This is the first film to feature Universal's 100th Anniversary logo.

Did you know that despite being the two main characters of the film, The Lorax and Ted never appear in a scene together.

FINAL THOUGHTS:

Dr. Seuus' The Lorax is a wonderful movie with top-notched audio/video transfer. The most outstanding aspect is its colours that simply pop off the screen. There are a couple goofy bonus shorts that the kiddies (and young at heart) will enjoy. The price is very reasonable at $24.99. This set is highly recommended.

I hope the above review is helpful to you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Dr. Seuss story, Jan. 29 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is a great story for kids. In addition to the important messages behind consumerism and greed, it really gets kids thinking about the importance of taking care of our environment and the animals in it. It was loved by my 3 year old, but much older kids would get more from it and likely really enjoy it as well.
