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.

The following review is based on the 2D version:

PACKAGING:

The 3D version has a lenticular cover, which is very well designed. There are 3 discs: Disc 1: Blu ray 3D feature film with bonus features in HD; Disc 2: Blu ray 2D feature film with bonus features in HD: Disc 3: DVD feature film with bonus features. Digital Copy is also included.

PRICING:

When The Lorax blu ray release was first announced, the price was $34.99. Then, it went up to $37.49, down to $29.99. Finally, it has dropped to $24.99, the same for 3D and regular 2D sets. Of course, I chose the 3D version. This is a price that I just cannot resist. Buy it before the price goes up again, like the earlier release of Star Wars. (Note: since it was released, the price for the 3D set has gone up to $29.99)

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. Currently, at the price of $24.99, what are you waiting for? (Sorry, since I wrote the review, the price has gone up to $29.99...update: $31.49 now). But this set is still highly recommended.

I hope the above review is helpful to you.

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.

I originally took my grandson to the theatre to see The Lorax and he thoroughly enjoyed it ... so did his older brothers and I. He readily 'got the messages' intended and we later had some interesting discussions on taking responsibility for your actions and living with the consequences. Second time around, he enjoyed the movie even more and saw greater depth in it than I thought his young years would allow. Good old Dr. Seuss!

I have four children ranging from 3years to 13 years, they all love this movie. I purchased it for my three year old daughter but it turns out we all sit and watch it. It is fantastic, love the music and watching my daughter memorize the songs. 5 stars from me and I would recommend this movie to anyone!!!

This was the first time that I watched it, but my 6 year old grandson was so pleased to receive it as a gift as he loves it!!!
What a brilliant message to instill in all generations, to respect and care for our planet.

My ten month old is amazed by this movie. She absolutely loves it. The wife and I both watched it countless times with her. It's a cute and funny animation. I enjoyed it a lot, especially the humour. Would recommend to any kids or parents with kids.
