The Review

    The astonishing Lorax is a great movie that has marvelous effects for its animation. The animation in The Lorax is clear and sharp; it is remarkable to watch this whole entire movie because the animation looks like it is real. Real-looking movies that are actually animated are miraculous to see. It will light up your eyes, and will amaze you how incredible looking it appears. You will legit see the softest of the Truffula trees and almost want to feel it. You will also notice the astounding, white, fluffy marshmallows when the forest animals first experience them. Therefore, the wonderful movie has fantastic effects and animations that it will actually look real. 

   The storyline of the marvelous Lorax is nice and attention grabbing to the watcher. When you watch The Lorax it will catch your eye that minute it starts. There movie is an adventure, it has comedy, and a little romance between Audrey and Ted. The storyline is about a boy named Ted who has affection for Audrey, who loves the non existent trees. The adventure of how Ted tries to accomplish Audrey’s desire to get a tree. Ted almost risks everything, even his life just to get to The Once-ler, so he can tell him about the trees and what happened to them. Ted’s accomplishments are almost inspiring; he will do anything with an astounding deal of courage. Therefore, the storyline of the outstanding Lorax is brilliant.

     The incredible characters in The Lorax, all have great potential and a unique character. There are wonderful characters such as The Lorax, the Once-ler, Ted, Audrey, and O’ Heir. The Lorax is a clever wise little animal that has an unusual yellow mustache. Also, there is The Once-ler who is mainly the person that tells the whole story about the trees disappearing, and lives it. Then there is Ted, basically that main character who is in all of the adventure. Ted has a huge love for Audrey. Audrey is the girl who starts Ted’s crave for trees, and she loves them and wants one so bad, that Ted is willing to risks a lot to get it. Then, and last is O’ Heir, and he is a grouchy, mean, old, tiny man who only cares about money, and business, but mostly about himself. Therefore, the incredible characters in The Lorax have such uniqueness to each and every one of them.

Final Thoughts

     So, I recommended this movie to anyone who is a kid at heart. This movie definitely deserves a four out of five. This movie has great animations, an incredible storyline, and a wonderful line of characters. I would greatly tell anyone that is a kid at heart to see this movie.





Best and Worst of 2011

Best Movies of 2011

1. Just Go With It

One of the best movies in 2011 is Just Go With It because it is one of the funniest movies I have ever seen. I love this movie because it has so many good parts in it. Like in the entire movie, people just go with whatever happens. Also, Adam Sandler is in this movie, and he is hilarious. He is such a good and funny actor, I love him. Also, I love the ending. The two best friends fall in love. This movie is one of my favorite movies of 2011. I love it because it is so hilarious and I love movies that make me laugh and smile. Therefore, Just Go With It is one of the best movies of 2011.

2. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows is one of the greatest movies of 2011 because it has so much action and it is the last movie of the series and I love it. I love it because there is so much action in it; it’s like the entire movie. Also, I like that it is like a magical land and there is wizards and witches in the school. I also love the story and all of the movies, but this movie is one that I especially like. I like this one the best because it just ends it all up and you don’t have to worry about what’s going to happen next in the next movie. Also, I just love Harry Potter, Hermine, and Ron Wesley. I love all the characters, and they just put the whole story together to make it great. Therefore, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows is one of the best movies of 2011.

3. Tangled

This movie is the best movie I have ever seen of 2011, it’s my favorite movie of 2011 because it is so funny and it is just such a fun movie. I know that it’s a kid movie but it’s just such a fun and funny movie that everyone probably loves. How couldn’t you love it? Rapunzel and Flynn Rider (Eugene) fall in love, and it’s so funny how they get to where they are. I love it when Rapunzel lies in the flowers when she’s arguing with herself, and she says that she’s a despicable human being. That is my favorite part of the movie. Also, there is another part where Flynn Rider crushes a grape and tells Rapunzel that she needs to crush her fake mother’s soul. Therefore, Tangled is my favorite movie of 2011.

4. Transformers Dark of the Moon

One of the best movies in 2011 is Transformers Dark of Moon because it has a lot of action in it and it is intense. I love action movies because there is a lot happening and it is very exciting. Also, this movie because this is the third movie to the Transformers movies, and this one is by far the best. I like how the cars come alive, and I love that there is a big conflict between the antagonist and the protagonist. Also, I love the characters and actors in it. I love the car bumble bee because he talks through the radio and he is a Mustang when he is a real car. Also, I love the actor Shia Buff. He is one of my favorite actors. Therefore, Transformers Dark of the Moon is one of the greatest movies in 2011.

5. Soul Surfer

Soul Surfer is one of the best movies made in 2011 because it was based on a true story and that story is very inspiring. I love that it is based on a true story and that she learns and teaches herself to do her passion without one arm. The real person that did that is amazing for surfing with only one arm and doing everything else with one arm also. I like how she says in the movie, that she doesn’t need easy, she just needs possible. Also, I love that she is just so calm about everything and didn’t freak out. Most people would freak out and not be able to handle it. But she did. Therefore, Soul Surfer is one of the greatest movies made in 2011.

Worst of 2011

1. Let Me In

Let Me In is one of the worst movies made in 2011 I have ever seen because it has no plot and it is confusing the whole movie. Also, it was really weird and unrealistic. I mean I like movies that the things in it that will never happen, but this movie takes it too far. The girl is a crazy person that eats people, and when she feels sun light, she catches on fire. This movie is so weird. One part of the movie, that crazed girl tried to eat another person but only injured her, and the woman that she injured went crazy and started eating herself, and the nurse in the hospital opened the window, and she and the whole hospital bed caught on fire. This movie is just so unrealistic, weird, and crazy. Therefore, Let Me In is one of the worst movies made in 2011 I have ever seen.

2. Breaking Dawn: Part 1

Breaking Dawn: Part 1 is one of the worst moves I have seen in 2011 because I don’t like the characters and the storyline to it. I don’t like the characters. Especially Bella, and Edward because I think that they are both very awkward, and Bella doesn’t seem like she is when she is in the book. Also, Edward is very awkward in the movie, too. I know that he is “supposed” to be a vampire when he is awkward, but he is just too much of it. Also, I don’t really like that she turned into a vampire. What is going to happen next? Jacob turns into a vampire. I know that they just want the audience to feel a twist in the story, but I just don’t. Therefore, Breaking Dawn: Part 1 is one of the worst movies I have seen, and made in 2011.

3. Cowboys and Aliens
