    I'm a big anime fan, but when they try to mix anime into American media, it's always cringey and over the top. The makers of the film have probably never seen a proper anime episode before.

    I really don't understand why Dr. Seuss adaptation movies are so ashamed of their own source material, and tries shoehorn in a bunch of pop-culture references,
    Be proud of your source material, guy!!! Don't be a DC, be a Marvel.

    You know what's crazy?
    The whos in the Grinch were actually singing, when they discovered that their christmas instruments dissapear, because without them nobody could hear their voice! So when the Grinch stolen their instruments they lost the only thing that can make them visible to the others outside! The Grinch almost committed genocide! Grinch and Horton are in same universe!
    Now ain't that just quacking crazy?!

    As an adaptation, it certainly is "meh". As a standalone animated film, I actually enjoyed the heck out of it. Now while I despise pop-culture references in movie (they're both distracting and pandering), the ones in Horton were fairly mild and non-intrusive (save the obvious anime one). It was bursting with visual charm, and I much prefer the Seuss stylistic adaptation here to that of Illumination's.

    Before I even watch the review, I'd like to say I thought this movie was DREADFUL upon watching it. I was about... 11 or 12 when I saw it for the first time? I thought Horton was over the top annoying and stupid for no good reason. The entire time watching it, all I could think was " _Sheesh, shut up already!_ "

    It's not so off-putting that Horton already killed a town of tiny living things if you view in the context that Horton's utter devotion to the speck of Whoville is way of atoning for accidentally killing the Fly City.

    Believe it or not the ONE thing the movie did that hurt the entire message of the movie the most... was Jojo... Originally he was just the smallest Who of them all, with a small voice and small mind. Yet it was the smallest voice, of the smallest people, that allowed the Whos to be heard. Changing the villain from being concerned about Horton's Health (yeah, originally the villain was actually trying to do the right thing... It is why she was forgiven so easily at the end) to being a control freak is lackluster as well.
