I just watched this movie with my kids entitled, Dr. Seuss, The Lorax.
At first I thought it was just a movie created for kids, therefore I will not enjoy it. But I was proven wrong.
Yes, this film was created for kids... and adults alike. Although it was an animated cartoon, it was funny actually with a great moral lesson.
See, as we grow older, we forget to be wiser. We think that we know what is best. We are so consumed to be successful and we quantify our success with how much money we have.
We forget that there are other more important things in life than money. And because we are too hooked in getting more and more money, we justify all the wrong deeds that we do. Yes, we industrialize our country by constructing high-rise buildings and market unhealthy, tasty foods.
We justify that we don't cut trees just because we want to, its because we need to. It's because we need to construct other multimillion Casino in this place and the trees are on our way.
Sad to admit but this is true. Just like in The Lorax, The Once-Ler only wanted to be successful. But he forgot that there are also other life forms around him.
The one I thought to be a kids movie taught me a very valuable lesson; don't be greedy. Don't let anyone dictate what you should do. What is wrong is wrong, no excuses.
I hope you find the movie as enlightening as I did.
