Oh, The Re-education Camps You'll Go! by DrFaustusAU Oh, The Re-education Camps You'll Go! by DrFaustusAU
Oh, The Re-education Camps You'll Go!

Created for i09's article "Posters That Prove Dr. Seuss Movies Could Always Get Worse". You can find the article by Meredith Woerner here: [link]

I really tried to emulate Seuss's later line style on this one.

It is sadly ironic that Dr Suess supported the internment of Japanese into camps. His racism (so evident in his cartoon work) really tarnishes his legacy.

To be fair, Horton Hears a Who! was, in some ways, Geisel's penance and demonstrates some of his regret for his earlier attitude towards Japan.

Yes, but I wish his mollification of some of his views was a clear and strong repudiation. Especially in light of his own past words:

"But right now, when the Japs are planting their hatchets in our skulls, it seems like a hell of a time for us to smile and warble: "Brothers!" It is a rather flabby battle cry. If we want to win, we’ve got to kill Japs, whether it depresses John Haynes Holmes or not. We can get palsy-walsy afterward with those that are left."

And then there was his depictions of Africans and Arabs.[link]

As a fan of his books and paintings I wish he had unambiguously clarified his thoughts of his past work.

I loved "The Lorax" even as child and I think it does show kids that we can use resources sustainably but I thinl it gives kids the wrong idea when dealing with environmental problems.

I got a kick out of the "Green Eggs and Ham is People" poster.

I found it very clever.

I love "Soylent Green."

A remake would have to work in prion diseases.

I would hate to see a remake because it was such a powerful movie. Sadly it's movie people have never heard of, like "China Sydrome" which is another powerful movie.

Supposedly it's in development (SG)but will continue where the first one ended.

Hollywood will do anything to make a buck won't they. The movie is suppose to end with that creepy tone.
