Dr' Seuss The Lorax 2012

All thanks to Churp2 for the invitation, I get to watch The Lorax 3D earlier last Friday (2.3.2012) which was also Dr' Seuss 108th birthday!
Our tickets and we've got pretty good seating. 

Synopsis: The 3D-CGI feature Dr. Seuss' The Lorax is an adaptation of Dr. Seuss' classic tale of a forest creature who shares the enduring power of hope. The animated adventure follows the journey of a boy as he 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. -- (C) Universal
PG: 1 hr. 34 min.
Genre: Animation, Kids & Family
This is Thneedville, that was once filled with colourful cotton candy look alike Trufulla trees everywhere!

The giant furry peanut and the cute animals from Thneedville. That's three humming fish on the left, they can live w/o water! HAHA

I am the Lorax. I speak for the trees. I speak for the trees, for the trees have no tongues.

Thanks to your hacking my trees to the ground, there's not enough trufulla fruit to go round.

Zac Efron and Taylor Swift as the voices behind the 12 years old Ted (main protagonist) and Ashley, an older girl who's studying in high school and Ted has a crush on her. Just so you know, the characters of Ted and Audrey are named after Dr. Seuss (whose real name was Theodor Seuss Geisel) and his second wife Audrey Geisel :O 
You'll definitely recognize her! Betty White who plays Ted's grandma. 
One of my fave scene from the movie! These brown Bar-ba-loots sure love marshmallowwwwwwws <3

Found this on Tumblr; I want to have Lorax nail art too! 

Verdict: I'm a big fan of animation and cartoon, how can I ever say no to The Lorax?  Plus, it's directed by the director of Despicable Me! It was decent and entertaining to my inner child's liking (yes, I'm a kid at heart!) but I feel that something was lacking. The story line was somehow predictable, even though I've never read the book and I think it could have been better. Frankly speaking, it was not as par as Despicable Me. Overall, it was a short but meaningful story filled with adorable characters, vibrant animation and catchy soundtracks. No doubt, kids will definitely enjoy this movie! Zac Efron and Taylor Swift should have come up with a duet and sing it in the movie, no?

Quote of the movie: UNLESS someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It's not.
Favourite soundtrack from the movie: Let It Grow Gospel Ending – Jenny Slate
My name’s Marie and I am THREE! I would really like to see a tree…Lalalala La Lalalee, I say let it grow! ♪( ´▽`)

Enough of getting Lorax-ified by me! Catch it in the cinema and decide it for yourself :D
