Horton Hears A Who!
Dr. Seuss's classic 1954 book Horton Hears a Who has entertained generations of children and served as the inspiration for a 26-minute, 1970 television special Dr. Seuss's Horton Hears a Who and the 2000 Broadway musical "Seussical: The Musical". This 2008, full-length animated movie features the voice talents of Jim Carrey as Horton, Steve Carrell as the Mayor of Whoville, Carol Burnett as the Kangaroo, and Jesse McCartney as JoJo and promises to delight a whole new generation of children and their parents and grandparents. The technological wonders of computer animation have allowed 20th Century Fox Animation to bring to life the wacky, colourful Whoville with its minute inhabitants and the lush Jungle of Nool with its host of distinctive animals and the result is a rich, fantastical world of wonder worthy of Dr. Seuss' own imagination.All the major plot elements of Dr. Seuss' book are present, with Horton hearing the faint cry for help from a tiny dust speck atop a small clover and doing his best to protect the inhabitants of that small civilization of Whoville despite the disbelief, disdain, and persecution of his fellow animals. The feel of Dr. Seuss' original rhyming prose is partially preserved in the sparse narration by Charles Osgood that's interspersed throughout the film's dialogue and the overarching themes of staying true to one's convictions and the celebration of the power of perseverance, imagination, and kindness come through loud and clear. Horton Hears a Who is a fun rendering of a classic Dr. Seuss story that's sure to entertain viewers of all ages. --Tami Horiuchi, Amazon.com --This text refers to the DVD edition.

There are good extras too: an Ice Age short and a free digital copy (albeit only good for use on one specific device) and entertaining making-of features etc. Perhaps the only gripe might be that at times there seems to be some more overt than covert political recruitment of young minds going on: the Mayor at times come across like an environmentalist faced with the occasional public reaction of "Oh, well, global warming means better weather dunnit?" (the chairman's kite-flying quip) And is "a person's a person no matter how small" an attempt to sneak some Pro-Life in there too? None of this spoils the film, but I don't care for indoctrinating children, however worthy the cause. Maybe this is oversensitivity on my part. I still loved the film and would recommend it wholeheartedly.
But UK fans of both comedians should be aware that the 'US' edition of the BLU RAY on 20th Century Fox is REGION A LOCKED - so it won't play on our machines unless they're chipped to be 'all regions' which most aren't.
Buy the UK version instead - it's less than a skydiver – beautifully rendered on the Format - and like “Nanny McPhee” benefits from a moral centre too...
Hopefully Fox will get this sorted but given media companies history of dealing with digital restrictions they place on their products I very much doubt it.
The restrictions on the digital copy (when it works) are also very tight. You can transfer the film to a single computer and a single portable device. If you need to copy it again (for instance you reinstall your computer) then you will have to contact Fox and beg for another serial number. At least they have provided the ability to use either Windows Media Player or iTunes so it will copy to an iPod and will work on both PCs and Macs.
And of course the very small print on the back of the box warns that the serial number may not work after October 2010 so you aren't really buying a copy anyway you are only renting it for two years!
All in all after thinking that a film company had for once taken a step forward by allowing legal digital copying I'm left utterly disappointed. I doubt I'll be paying extra for digital copies in the future.
In the heat of the day, `cos the tropics aren't cool
We were watching ....enjoying the cinema's joys...
When Horton the elephant first heard the noise
When Horton stopped splashing we learned that the sound
Came not from the trees or the stones on the ground
A small shrieky voice was appealing for help
But all Horton heard was a faint little yelp.Read more ›
