about Lion King lead non-spoiler review
03:41
go for it sir all right nice we was
03:46
hopefully seen liking bass also just
03:50
give my first reactions of it I didn't
03:53
think it was great I thought it was a
03:55
decent movie deep decent Disney film it
03:59
didn't to me stay completely true to
04:02
what the original I didn't have those
04:04
fun and not let me tell you part my
04:06
pockets are not big enough to control
04:09
the amount of I ruling that I have for
04:11
you right now
04:14
you could toggle your drive I didn't I
04:20
liked it I just didn't love it wasn't a
04:22
great movie hey I didn't get the same
04:24
feeling that I got first in a jungle
04:26
book ok the lag though easy
04:29
I mean they really brought you back to
04:32
being a kid and seeing the thing live
04:33
you know this was like I don't know the
04:37
way that the way they even shot the
04:39
movie just missed all the emotional
04:42
points of the movie Simba I like the kid
04:46
that played them but watching him on
04:48
film you know I could it wasn't really
04:51
captivating at all you know the songs I
04:53
know they try to make everything
04:54
National Geographic and you know
04:56
everything true to how it looks in in
04:59
the you know and in the wild even though
05:02
we know monkeys don't go pick up baby
05:03
comes from throw a hold them over
05:05
mountain tops you know so I like to me
05:07
like they get a little too real like
05:09
everything that they have to be exactly
05:11
real real you can just hey know you
05:14
could just don't add the Disney flavor
05:17
to make it look good
05:18
and keep it moving and we can still have
05:20
a great movie that everybody enjoys like
05:23
I was actually well here I said one
05:25
minute let me I want to get it thank you
05:28
but basically you know I I felt through
05:31
this I thought most of the characters
05:33
that portrayed the new the new cast
05:37
portrayed the characters pretty well but
05:40
then I like scar so I'm gonna talk about
05:44
that a little bit more in my non-spoiler
05:46
but if they true to the movie when it
05:48
came to the store the script of the
05:50
story I mean everything most of the
05:51
scenes were almost exactly how they were
05:54
on the cartoon it's just you just miss
05:55
that next element to really bring to
05:58
make the movie great like you know the
06:01
original ones but uh what about you
06:04
thank you I'm glad you finally done
06:07
they'll become complaining to me after
06:09
the videos over to my non-spoiler
06:11
section it was too long sorry after the
06:19
movie ended the audience that was with
06:22
me applauded they clapped and I saw
06:24
another guy that was on Facebook and he
06:27
was tomorrow's movie sucks and I posted
06:30
on his page I said I bet your audience
06:33
applauded it just like mine did after
06:35
it's over it was like well yeah but okay
06:43
go okay what's that it whatever man
06:46
thank you from here
06:48
I had all my kids there I was like just
06:51
to be great guys
06:51
it's gonna be awesome no please none of
06:58
the impactful moments like like you did
07:00
my child
07:02
that's probably with anyone hurt - - so
07:04
like Daddy can really like it this this
07:07
D :
07:09
yeah it wasn't it's not my favorite
07:13
I still like Aladdin Aladdin to me was
07:15
just an incredible a millions of magical
07:17
movie all with her I said I wouldn't say
07:19
it was that I also would agree that it's
07:22
not great at points at least as far as
07:25
the story is concerned but I liked it I
07:29
very much liked it
07:31
there was one part of it that I thought
07:33
was absolutely phenomenal though and
07:35
that was the amount of computer graphics
07:38
I appreciated this movie a whole lot
07:40
more once I talked to a friend and
07:41
realize that what are you looking for
07:44
looking for the down the road I'm a
07:57
teacher I want people paying attention
08:00
anyway I would talk to a friend and
08:04
realize that the movie that every single
08:08
scene in the movie except for one was
08:10
completely 100% computer-generated and
08:13
going into the movie knowing that the
08:16
movie is mind blowing from from a
08:17
technical standpoint I mean because I
08:19
mean every means every single blade of
08:21
grass every tuft of fur every piece of
08:25
dirt every cloud in the sky is computer
08:29
generated and it looks so real I mean
08:31
it's photorealistic
08:32
and it's just that's a mom that's
08:34
mind-blowing to me she's cutting it up
08:46
dungeon you doesn't have to pawn his
08:48
suit anymore he just walks around on set
08:50
with a little suit and it's like perfect
08:52
smart already he doesn't say anything we
08:54
know you know about the graphics just
08:56
Disney
08:57
to the next level so anyway the storing
09:01
Lion King is okay but I think that if
09:04
you're not a absolute Lion King purist
09:07
like all the songs needs it goes this
09:10
way and the eyes knit you know it's the
09:13
cartoon the eyes get so big and and this
09:15
one the eyes don't get big because
09:17
they're real you know if you're not a
09:19
hundred percent of Lion King purist like
09:22
everything has to be exactly the way you
09:24
saw it it just has to be a
09:25
computer-generated version of it I think
09:28
you'll enjoy our Lisa Jordan I think
09:30
most people will enjoy it's just the
09:32
people who would guess they worship Lion
09:34
King again they've got the script
09:36
underneath their pillow they're the
09:38
haters so anyway let's go ahead and get
09:41
into this for real I to go ahead and
09:54
release everything that you want to say
09:57
about this movie okay first of all I'm
10:05
just gonna start off with I understand
10:09
that they trying to make things real but
10:11
good gosh that I mean the scar song
10:15
almost had me walk out the theater that
10:17
was so bad I was like what in the hell
10:19
is this I get is so bad I might know my
10:28
wife each other in there like it's this
10:31
for real this is a scar so I was like
10:33
it's like what no I can do this version
10:36
that we did on the skit restart do it I
10:39
just did one part I rode I just get the
10:42
O with my teeth my teeth and ambitions
10:45
are bared be prepared
10:50
be prepared all right they got paid
10:55
millions of dollars to do it here's a
10:57
beat bad baby pass people pay right
11:02
another verse on this song and all that
11:05
I need to be looking at microphones will
11:07
be the background singers like that's
11:09
what makes your movie good like you
11:11
ain't even I'm like I don't have to be
11:13
real to the T that nobody singing it's a
11:15
whole musical movie you know I'm like
11:18
I'm I just kind of roll my eyes just
11:20
don't put the part in there you gonna do
11:22
it that bad to me
11:23
all right if you don't want everything
11:24
to be real you don't want to have any
11:26
actual song and actual feeling of the
11:28
movie just make it a different type of
11:30
movie don't have it in there change the
11:32
story completely and just call it Lion
11:34
King and they say we just changed the
11:36
story and make it good but we don't have
11:38
to see the songs if they're not gonna do
11:39
the songs seven-year-old Chuck needs a
11:43
hook right now it's been with them
11:49
okay know another thing the scene that
11:54
touched so many of my generation was
11:57
when the faucet died when he falls from
12:00
that cliff and you hear all that music
12:02
you hear everybody you know you hear
12:04
scarp whisper in his ears the king and
12:08
he throws them off it was like ah just
12:10
like everything like just expands and
12:12
then like just erupts into this one
12:14
moment and it just sucks it away from
12:16
you you like it's like quite complete
12:20
sound like oh well that was that was
12:27
laughing yeah I know nobody really can
12:30
be remembering Mufasa dying in this
12:33
movie you blinking he's already fell off
12:35
the mountain so what it really fostered
12:40
I know my kids right now man damn
12:49
let the Avengers what you talking about
12:52
that bike that's what they gonna say
12:53
they know remember this well cuz they
12:56
have a lot gonna get some these days I
12:58
mean you know we've got one just like me
13:01
so week I'm sorry saying Beyonce might
13:07
need to stick to just singing
13:09
I mean her acting I know she's just
13:12
doing the voiceover but I don't know
13:14
sometimes it's hard to do her line she's
13:17
been practicing all night
13:18
well how to do this line it just doesn't
13:20
knocks our original at all so I was like
13:23
yeah yeah I don't need no the talk or
13:25
just saying no sing just singing and and
13:29
you know go try eat Kumba that was
13:32
pretty cool my own passionate I'm
13:35
bashing it but I'm gonna go too so
13:37
please actually like I love deponent
13:39
Timon and Pumba sparked really what I
13:42
like when that part came on I can see
13:45
like yeah I'm feeling this is kind of
13:48
all filled with the movie when I was
13:50
near but how laughing the bear songs
13:52
were good their whole I guess you know
13:56
interaction you know right right
14:01
I guess together when they were doing
14:02
this scripts no they weren't separate
14:05
doing their part you know they were in
14:06
the same room doing everything and they
14:08
let it feel they were feeding off each
14:10
other really good on the movie so I
14:12
enjoy that part anything was doing
14:15
minute I enjoyed I think the last I
14:17
think when um they called him fat that
14:20
was the only thing that was but they go
14:22
found abandoned car what did they say on
14:24
the new one they were he was fast
14:27
they say he was chubby chubby okay yeah
14:29
then I like the mr. pig the big booty
14:40
yeah yeah yes just left that to say that
14:45
was Bill's meat um and I guess I guess
14:49
if I could kind of sum up you know the
14:53
reasons why I felt this was lacking
14:56
I can just say the Jungle Book when you
14:59
go about go watch the jungle book the
15:02
Disney version of The Jungle Book and
15:04
watch how the animals are realistic but
15:07
they actually use the CGI or whatever
15:09
the face caption motion caption that
15:12
they did with the actors on that movie
15:15
and play the animals so when the handle
15:16
is made express anger were laughter you
15:21
know sadness you could see it in the
15:23
animal space and it made you connect
15:26
more with the movie on business I was
15:28
like similar is that if he said he
15:31
looked like a regular cinema to me I
15:32
mean he don't look down I mean even the
15:35
dog makes us sad
15:36
I said look so I'm sure the lion could
15:38
do something that makes him look sad I
15:40
mean he'd just look the exact same he
15:42
was scared he looked for Zach same as he
15:44
was when he was happy so only thing have
15:46
you ever seen a sad lion have you seen
15:49
one you see the little either look sad
15:53
but I'm saying I can see my dog my dog
15:56
looks sad and I can see okay
15:59
but the Lions they just I'm just saying
16:02
I that's why I can't connect with it to
16:09
pick up their facial expression Lions
16:11
out in the wilderness they don't play
16:13
with people they don't know anyway this
16:16
is a movie and the movies are there to
16:19
connect with the audience the audience
16:20
are humans so we don't understand
16:23
animal senses and what makes them happy
16:25
or sad or horny we don't know what's
16:27
happening I can tell what a symbol like
16:29
now are and not or not I can tell what
16:32
was going on that that whole ordeal I
16:35
just know this song was playing and
16:37
Beyonce was singing her tail off that's
16:39
all I know
16:39
in her head they were singing together
16:41
each other's head but I can't tell what
16:44
was actually going on based off their
16:46
body language we never see I miss you
16:48
late them I think I saw a tongue come
16:49
out she licked him on his cheek and they
16:51
rub little heads a little lion heads
16:53
together you can't really get into the
16:56
moment and okay really quick before you
16:59
go way to ran when he ran when he was
17:05
running back the pride of rock hey why
17:07
he just ran down around the block like
17:09
that the whole run was like souls so
17:13
quick he was like right there like he
17:15
was like jogging he already caught up
17:17
with Madonna and then the next over the
17:19
hill was was there back in the kingdom
17:22
again
17:22
alright so thing he was nowhere on the
17:25
cartoon it let him go was running for
17:26
like a week or something
17:28
who invite the whole song what he was
17:33
running oh yeah my heroes like he was
17:39
like hey hold up let me check I'm gonna
17:41
go with you then they walk around the
17:42
corner there's a prog rock fight well
17:44
that was quick
17:45
that was good you saw him to walk from
17:49
he walked through the desert to get firm
17:52
Pryor rock fair said you know it was a
17:53
long wait they just cut it it was time
17:55
to get your stuff I guess so I guess so
17:59
you know I wash it wash it some more
18:04
about it and love it like I did Jungle
18:06
Book and Aladdin so it's third or fourth
18:10
on my list of some of those remakes what
18:12
about you wait we're quick how you gonna
18:14
leave out your favorite part with Timon
18:17
and Nala oh yeah that part now this did
18:22
get me into theaters was when when Timon
18:25
and Pumbaa ever sing a song and they had
18:26
all the other little antelopes and then
18:29
little other animals all singing when
18:30
they're all going on beat something like
18:32
yeah oh yeah I got you I got you
18:34
and then the next thing that must jump
18:36
top the Wolves trying to eat every
18:37
bubble god oh oh oh God because you know
18:51
there is no you got to see her in the
18:53
woods even when you watch someone on
18:57
like the NASA Geographic Discovery
18:59
Channel you always see the Lions right
19:02
you will see from one of you of the
19:04
antelope that's just grazing in the
19:06
grass I just kill along and then thing
19:09
this comes out the right
19:10
oh okay they show this from the other
19:13
point of view and s scary that's really
19:16
scary so yeah good good props on that be
19:19
this that wasn't that was true that was
19:21
true real as real lism there with that
19:25
but uh yeah I'm hard taking walking on
19:28
my keep going with stuff so you go ahead
19:30
and start this Thank You Disney yeah you
19:35
get to write one thing good stuff again
19:39
this was a great
19:41
we but I definitely don't deserve I
19:43
don't think it deserves the hate that
19:45
some of the lion king purists are
19:47
getting but this is exciting for me
19:49
because the roles I switched a little
19:50
bit because I tend to be more like this
19:52
but the Marvel movies you know I grew up
19:54
reading comic books and I didn't read
19:55
every character but I have a good
19:57
following on most of the characters like
20:00
spider-man like you know some spider-man
20:02
moves like I really thought that
20:03
spider-man far from home was a great
20:05
movie but the whole Tony Stark thing
20:07
spider-man it always bothers me because
20:09
I know how the character should be so
20:11
it's nice to be on the other side saying
20:13
look at you ha ha you don't get what you
20:15
want so either way I thought the movie
20:17
was again was breathtaking in terms of
20:20
computer animation my favorite scene in
20:22
the movie was actually the mouse right
20:24
at the beginning um that he's you know
20:27
he's running into the cave with scar and
20:29
you can see him in a running real place
20:31
really quickly and right could be he's
20:33
going so fast that the camera can't keep
20:35
up with him and it looks like how that
20:38
would look in real life like a real-life
20:40
Mouse running and the camera can't keep
20:42
up with them and I was like god that's
20:44
real like they did that was a computer
20:46
like it's just my cuz it looks so well
20:49
details like gosh that is amazing and
20:52
then when you get in there with scarce a
20:53
that is great so just you've been
20:56
talking about a jungle book this whole
20:57
time I don't know if you realize I'm not
21:00
but Jon Favreau was the director of both
21:02
of those movies so he he why he made the
21:14
first jungle book and he's right you
21:15
know what animals wouldn't be moving
21:17
their faces like humans
21:19
this man the animals right real actual
21:22
animals and also Panthers would be
21:25
running with wolves and and having best
21:27
friends with bears and singing songs you
21:31
know and and bamboos will be holding
21:33
babies baby wait a sec have you ever
21:36
seen a panther in the woods okay and we
21:39
don't know that the parent does not be
21:41
senior owns with the Bears groaning dr.
21:44
mirrors to see that doesn't happen they
21:51
put them all together so they might not
21:53
kill each other because you know they
21:54
look at how the wild love ain't out
21:57
there doing hanging and they see they
21:59
singing anyway in some ways I like this
22:05
movie but I wasn't really the biggest
22:08
fan of the original Lion King and I got
22:09
a couple reasons now No
22:11
number one so people are like upset
22:15
about the Little Mermaid like the new
22:17
little mermaids gonna have like a black
22:19
girl s as Ariel they're like oh no get
22:22
her a blackfish you know but nobody had
22:25
any problems with the two blackest
22:28
parents in the world you know uh James
22:30
Earl Jones playing Mufasa and I don't
22:33
know who the other lady was but she was
22:35
the queen from coming to America so to
22:38
come to America couple and then having
22:41
the white kid from home improvement and
22:44
simmer nobody had a problem with it was
22:50
more like a mixed kid cuz the kid was
22:53
white talks when he started a black
22:56
person brother but when he started
22:59
calling his white dude so it was like
23:00
that you know I know we can go in oh no
23:03
we can't do this no no say like you said
23:09
it before they allow the black kid the
23:11
same baby now in the top the same
23:15
they're saying that no don't talk we
23:18
don't want to like your voice cuz we got
23:20
this star from Disney right they
23:24
probably caught it they probably
23:25
recorded the whole thing with all movie
23:37
even they did they just use me for my
23:40
voice exactly so I do like the fact that
23:44
they know they fix that you know they
23:45
made if you're gonna have the black
23:47
parents black kid play it is in Africa
23:50
and it's only the first book I mean it
23:53
already is the issue with me that oh you
23:55
get oh yes the new ruler no right it's
23:58
the white uh all every other Disney
24:00
movie Africa oh let's make it animals
24:05
but okay well you're gonna have animals
24:08
at least let them be
24:08
so finally let JD McCreary play and I
24:11
was happy with that second thing is that
24:13
the final battle was simple and Skaar in
24:15
the original symbol just kind of does a
24:18
backflip but he just flips him and
24:20
scores falls off like that doesn't
24:22
really show Simba has grown in any
24:24
ability he just kind of he just kind of
24:26
he looked up basically in that but in
24:29
this one symbol is the clear winner
24:31
against scar which I like you know which
24:34
I didn't think he was gonna happen
24:35
because you know as Nala is like nailing
24:37
him down on a rifle before if now that
24:41
could take out simple I had some
24:45
dislikes so um just like when you were
24:47
talking about Chuck when you said that -
24:49
moon thump - the two of them were
24:51
together they were definitely together
24:55
it did not seem at all like Dan up like
24:58
doc Donald Glover and Beyonce worked
25:01
together when they were doing um can you
25:03
feel the love tonight because he's like
25:22
I love you I love you I do but I don't
25:27
know if she should really sing on the
25:29
movies because she you know she's gonna
25:31
do her Beyonce song so I can't just turn
25:35
that off and get all that down like she
25:37
won't sing like Beyonce
25:53
I couldn't tell if she was over singer
25:56
he was under singing because it's same
25:58
token when he was with timon and pumba
26:00
doing Hakuna Matata
26:04
like he was really singing not be
26:08
together there's no way they're together
26:10
because they're not singing together at
26:13
all so that was a that Bobby nitpick
26:17
just like what you just said the whole
26:19
you know oh I almost fried a bully at
26:21
the polls they call me mister
26:23
that was that was lame to me and my last
26:26
thing that drug on this is the reason
26:28
why I say it's not a great movie this
26:30
main point right here the original Lion
26:33
King is probably about an hour and a
26:34
half long so this movie at what two
26:37
hours two hours 15 minutes unlike that
26:39
so they added a lot of themes related
26:43
arab scenes they just made seems longer
26:45
to make it fit and to me it drugs
26:49
sometimes like the whole beginning of
26:52
the movie like I'm like get to the
26:54
stampede okay I got it
26:56
alright you can't wait the king let's
26:58
get to the stampede I wanna see Mufasa
27:01
died you know points because I began
27:06
because you know how the movie goes you
27:08
know so it's like okay let's go ahead
27:10
and get to that part that I've know and
27:11
that bothered me that that took me out
27:13
of the movie a lot of times a lot of
27:15
times I like tame this dragon but um
27:17
overall I liked it it's better it's
27:20
definitely better good it's definitely
27:22
better the good things about it outweigh
27:24
the bad things no trying to state um let
27:25
me get some props to general James Earl
27:27
Jones we need to get James Jones in the
27:30
MCU
27:30
bro this man he ain't lost nothing when
27:33
it comes perfect look I'm jeez we need
27:59
you to come into the office ups
28:01
I'm James Earl Jones needs to be said
28:10
about this movie yeah I'm one last thing
28:13
I did want to say I like how they
28:15
changed with having the woman the female
28:23
you know since they were pulling
28:25
everything true that was true that the
28:28
females are larger now the only thing I
28:30
did that took away from that it took
28:32
some of the comedy cuz I don't know if
28:33
she was she was she was serious the
28:35
time so I know they had Whoopi Goldberg
28:39
play her and everybody are they all
28:41
those comics like meshed together so
28:43
made it funny and like when they were
28:45
talking and laughing all the time but I
28:47
only remember that uh hangers really
28:48
laughing and hyenas do they make the
28:51
noise like the laughs but I don't
28:52
remember really seeing it that much in
28:54
the movie that behind this woman laughs
28:56
we come out just like laughing in the
28:59
movie like you know did you see that
29:00
they laugh at all no and that's a good
29:03
point because the whole thing that -
29:05
they've made the evil side a lot more
29:08
serious and so that to me I forgot about
29:11
it but that lends itself to your point
29:12
about be prepared yes they dial the song
29:15
back but he's a much more serious lion
29:19
so you can't be like oh he's a bad guy
29:21
but he's got an incredible voice my man
29:24
you know I mean that that to me would
29:27
have taken you out of the movie a little
29:28
bit I can respect the decision that they
29:30
made no no he's gonna sound better than
29:36
that they should be all the same and
29:41
they should be able to carry a tune that
29:42
was like a horrible rendition of that
29:45
song sound like a broken-down karaoke
29:47
bar yeah but go ahead I'm done with Lion
29:53
King I rewatched this that's just - I
29:56
watched well yeah after I saw this but
30:01
this one I'm like oh yeah I'll see you
30:05
