Do you like what I did there?
Now I wont be giving too much away, because I don’t want to spoil anything and I really did enjoy the movie. So there isn’t really too much to complain about. When I got back from the movie, I saw some article about there was lash back against “Hakuna Matata”? But I literally don’t know what the problem was.
I think the first thing for people to recognise with any of these live action films. They are not cartoons. There are only so much expression that one can give on a live action film, especially with animals. i think once you can recognise that, you’ll be fine. Other than that…
I absolutely loved it! Cartoon less and everything.
There was genuinely one part I did not enjoy and that was because I felt that they had messed up a really pivotal song, and that should have stayed exactly as it is. I was trying to get to into the different version of it, but I couldn’t. You know how some songs make the scene?
Other than that I genuinely loved it all. I know there’s been a few complaints about the non-expressions, but I didn’t have a problem with them. For some reason I always cry at the beginning, in all the cartoon, live action and (lucky me) the musical as well. Do any of you? I don’t understand it.
I totally understand why they chose Chiwetel Ejiofor to play Scar, but I really did want Jeremy Irons to play Scar. But Chiwetel does always play a fantastic bad guy. I really wanted James and Jeremy together again.
