Words, words, words

As a lover of the written word, I was intrigued when I first heard about “The Words.” The idea of a movie built around the nature of authorship and the siren’s song of literary fame and fortune sounded pretty good to me. But then a simple, fundamental question occurred to me - can they actually make this interesting?

The works of Dr. Seuss have been adapted to the big screen many times over the years with mixed results. For whatever reason, some of his stories translate well to film while others simply do not. However, his canon is so universally beloved that the movies just keep on coming.
The latest attempt is “The Lorax,” from the same team that did 2010’s excellent “Despicable Me.” Chris Renaud and Ken Daurio are certainly talented, and there are some great moments here, but the movie never seems to quite live up to its potential.

Sometimes, a movie comes along that looks just terrible. You see the trailers and read the advance coverage and you think to yourself “Man, what a steaming pile that movie is going to be.” Of course, you’re still kind of titillated by the idea of going to see this awful, awful movie. Sometimes it’s fun to see something you know is going to be bad.
But sometimes you get a movie that’s beyond bad, a movie that is exponentially worse than even the terrible trailers ever indicated.
Sometimes you get “Project X.”
