    The big difference between animated & photorealistic movies is the facial expression. That's why... =)

    I agree, the lion king is too classic to remake, like star wars, I mean I have seen the animated movie so many times and will continue to watch it and laugh and cry and yell at the screen, a remake was greatly unnecessary.

    I only hired the movie for my dog. I’m serious. My dog loves animal movies.

    This movie is garbage and so far the worst I've seen in 2019

    You know this movie is disrespectful to its source material when animators of the original film and even Elton John (one of the greatest musicians ever) have criticized this soulless cash cow remake.

  • Luiz Antonio Caldeira Falci

    This movie is CRAP... nothing more than a cashcow! The songs are HORRIBLE and not even Beyoncé can save this trainreck

    I reckon 1994 lion king audio with the 2019 lion kings visual would have been sooooooooo much better, like a full remaster not a remake. I wasnt a fan of beyonce singing of circle of life. It really sucked for me. Matter of fact even all the talking really sucked. Its like there was no emotion. And most of the songs just irritated me. They do the whole, hold a single note for a long time. Like hakuna matataaaaaaaaaaaAAAAAAAAAAAAAAaaaaaaaaa

    Although it was brief and could've been easily missed by most upon first viewing this film, they did hint at how scar got his scar near the beginning of the film. Mufasa roars at him and says "Is that a challenge"?! And scars response is altered from the original by adding one word. He responds with "I wouldnt dream of challenging you... Again". Its not a major change, but i believe this remake is not nearly as emotionless as people make it out to be. I admit its not anywhere close to the original but i do believe it did its job well enough to be praised on as its own work. From what I've experienced, the more you compare remakes to their original counterparts instead of focusing on only the remake you are watching, the less likely you are to enjoy that remake. I just dont compare any movie to its source material until ive watched the movie at least 3 to 5 times, judging it on its own. I did it for this movie and Detective Pikachu. For a better example, I even did this with Dragonball Evolution. Even though i absolutely hated it. And it even made THAT abomination more enjoyable. I just dont compare.

    It Was beautiful, amazing and stunning, as you say, but the lack of emotion, energy was painful, pretty disappointing

    Remember when Final Fantasy the spirits within came out and the Big Marketing thing was they were going to have the first digital actress

    No talking animal cartoon should ever be made live action. It works for cartoons. It does not work in real life. When will people learn this simple arithmetic.

    You had me not watching the movie with the "has no soul" thing.

    That's why I come here!

    it's a KIDS MOVIE. You are sitting here being critical of a Disney movie like it's a Martin Scorsese film or like you are the target audience. Talking about Aladdin as well. Come on man. Little mermaid next if it comes out? 🤔

  • Annamarie Sieberns

    I actually like the live action Aladdin more than the live action Lion King. But, yeah...

  • Kadester's movie reviews!

    I mean they would make billions of dollars if they played the original videos.
