Horton Hears a Who!: Movie for the Kids of the New Generation

Yesterday, BB Boy and I watched "Horton Hears a Who!", with voice acting by the ever wacky Jim Carrey. Little Girl was supposed to watch it with us, but she was not feeling too good and decided to mope around downstairs. Meanwhile, BB Boy, ever as hyper, watched the lovable elephant with amazed eyes.

Funny really. I never thought I would see this story in a full length film. I always loved the shorts, and the books. But the film is a whole other ballgame. I am quite happy that they did not use people like they did when they made "How the Grinch Stole Christmas". The animation of this film is really, really, awesome! Props to those who made this! No wonder it became a blockbuster. I would imagine anybody who could capture the childhood delights of the adults as well as introduce this long-time character to the new generation would be able to churn out a huge success.

As part of my movie reviews, I would like to give "Horton Hears a Who!" four and a half out of five stars.

The movie moved me a lot. And it made me cry when the clover with the speck of dust was thrown into a sea of clovers. It really made my heart break. It also made me want to shout and participate when the Whos of Whoville were making noise. Surely, any movie that can make you want to choke the antagonist is surely a good movie for me. Still, there were some parts which I felt were a bit dragging. All in all, I love it. :D

This movie, makes me wish I was young again. Wherein in youth, you can believe anything is possible. It makes me think of the book "Sophie's World." For me, it presents much of the same concept. Who knows? Maybe we are just a speck to others??

I particularly love the quote:
"A person's a person, no matter how small."
While watching the movie, sometimes what I see reverts to what I used to see... the pages of my book. It can't get any better than that. :)

About Me: even when she has fairy wings on, this girl is anything BUT dainty. perhaps the size, the weight, and the personality alone are just too much for her to be considered delicate, prim, proper, and refined. this girl with the mud smudged cheeks has been down on the ground one to many times. these times forced her to be tougher, smarter, and more savvy than she has ever been. perhaps she will always be, never dainty. email me: neverdainty [at] gmail [dot] com
