    Anyone see this piece of trash? I just wasted 2hrs of my life i can never get back. I understand about being a good steward of the planet but the message i received was that all corporations are bad. I had to explain to my daughter before she is brainwashed into believing this shit.

    You really should have known this going it. It is clearly apparent from the ads.
    It's not how old you are, it's how you got here.
    It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.
    Live every day as if it were your last, because one of these days, it will be.

    Excellent read but I skipped the film. I already saw it live as I read. And mine didn't leave out scenes.

    I Hear its better to watch the movie then read the book rather then the other way around.

    My older daughter read it first (a couple of years ago) and then saw the movie opening night. She enjoyed it but she told me the discussion after was mostly about what got left out or was changed.

    in 5-6 years, when all three are out, I'll either rent or buy the set and watch them one after the other. By then I will have forgotten enough of the story to not miss the left-outs.

    If you go into a movie thinking that its going to stick to the book 100%, your going to have a bad time.

    Learned that about 60 years ago.

    Getting back to the Lorax, I saw Danny DeVito interviewed a few weeks ago. He's a nasty little twit and was doing the anti-big business, pro environment rant but in a really, really mean way. He's another one on my all time list of obnoxious Hollywood libs.
