Shame on me and my entire family, to think that I would be able to sit through Armageddon sober. It’s about as patriotic as a giant American flag, folded up into the shape of a Marine, with a bald eagle on his shoulder, both of which are saluting another American flag.
Not only does The Lorax have an overly preachy message about the environment. But it has a strong criticism of capitalism in general. Never mind the fact that the film has sponsorship from Comcast, IHOP, and Mazda, they have to pay their bills somehow. You know how much money the animators spent on orange ink?

The Book of Job, featured prominently in the Old Testament (the old part) is one of the most influential stories in Western culture. Job, a righteous man, is tested by the whims of a less than benevolent God. Job is stripped of his happy life and then punished, in what amounts to nothing more than a test of faith. Despite the undeserved hardships, Job refuses to forsake his creator and is ultimately rewarded. The story serves as something of a guideline for those that may ask why a kind God would let bad things happen to good people, and Job is an icon for those who maintain intense spirituality in times of crisis.
