Steve Reviews: The Lion King (2019)

This week Steve Reviews The Lion King (2019). I know I've criticised Disney's previous live action remakes, but this one really did set the bar to a all new low.

    I hate when people think that hand drawn or 2D animation is inferior or outdated when compared to CGI. Sure, CGI may look more realistic and better than 2D, but treating the art as subpar is unfair. People, more importantly Disney themselves, seem to forget or underestimate how great hand drawn animation can be when put in the hard work and effort.

    I don't think this is the worst remake ever, but it definitely falls short compare to the original. Honesty, the hand drawn animation of the original I find more appealing and lively.

    I will enjoy if you do a review comparing and contrasting the original Disney animated Jungle Book with Disney’s live action counterpart as well as The Legend of Mowgli (which I believe is the best of the three since it’s closer to the original book as well as a lot darker)

    My personal impression of this movie boils down to single question: "Why does it exist?" It has no reason to exist other than being a mindless cashgrab, working on nostalgia bait. It is in every conceivable way inferior to the original. It feels bland and lifeless, and despite being basically shot-for-shot remake... it is longer, because they added pointless padding (like yeah, the original is good, but we really need a literal minute of some bug just walking around in the opening scene). The realism doesn't work here, not only in showing emotions, but also in action - characters blend together, you can't tell one lion from the other, one hyena from the other - it makes action scenes a hard to read mess. But one thing that really brings my piss to a boil is that everyone call this thing "live action" - there is NOTHING live in this...

    I will say, having watched this movie weeks after raising a litter of kittens, and also working in animal care most of my life, the faces were pretty accurate if you know how to read cats. But if you are used to animated faces, and especially with a shot by shot from the original, it isn't really what it could have been. Relying on people who know how to read animals isn't fair to people who don't have those kinds of opportunities.

    Fun Fact: Scar's actual name was Taka, which translates to trash in swahili and receives his name of Scar after a foolish fight with a herd of buffaloes that arose from his jealousy of Mufasa.

    Realism is much better the animation in my opinion because it shows you exactly what the character looks like in real life and their emotions are very different compared to us since they usually show body language more than facial, so I don't think that's really fair.

    02:34 - Oh. OH you do not know how Scar got his name? Ohboy. You must be blissfully unaware of the terrible show called The Lion Guard. SPOILERS: a snake bit him after some evil lion tried to trick him. Then the snake's venom apparently turned him evil, despite how it was shown Mufasa was already treating him badly. So yeah, no intricate backstory, he just got MADE evil by snake venom (and the same thing almost happens to Kion in the second season...) SOOO dumb.

    I liked the Live-action Adaptations of Beauty and the Beast and The Jungle Book, but I can see why people hate this film; The characters look flat, dead, and emotionless. The Jungle Book did the photorealistic animals a lot better, so why was this so bad?

    The best way I've ever seen to showcase this movie's issues. Show people the scene of Scar talking to Simba in the gorge. Muted. That right there displays all of the issues inherent to this style. Also, there is no Jeremy Irons devouring the scenery to make the second most memorable Disney villain (the most is Hades) and no song for him. Very lame. What is also hilarious is that I saw someone change the character's color palletes and eyes to look like the original with Deep Fakes, and that act alone made this look s much better.

    Personally I didn't have a problem with the lack of expressions: Real life felins have a very limited range of expression themselves. What made me mad was that it was an exact copy of the original made in 3D, it didn't add anything new to the mix. They put minimum effort in the making.

    This movie was the opposite of everything great about the original. Only thing good about it was the film score.... Hans Zimmer moved the heck out of me... (kinda hated Beyoncé’s rendition of nala including can you feel the love tonight which was wayyy over sung and completely lost its meaning as a result)... not mention it was in the middle of the fucking DAY.... more like can you feel the love this afternoon? Be prepared was laughable and was a serious injustice! However I must say I admire the effort put into replicating realistic animals and the CGI was pretty stunning but it stopped the animals from emoting...

    One time while I was in the toy section at Walmart, I saw two plushies of Simba. One was for the 90s version, and the other was for the reboot version. The 90s one looked cute because it had large expressive, colorful eyes that were made by stitching. The reboot Simba plushie had normal small glass eyes, so it looked like a regular lion toy you would see at a zoo gift shop or a Scholastic Book Fair. The contrast between the toys' appearance demonstrated every flaw with the reboot.

    Scar's original name was Taka, which means "to want". Unfortunately, Disney writers never checked for alternative meanings to the word, and Taka also means "trash" or "garbage" when used as a noun, so now you have legions of people who don't understand the naming conventions in Lion King worked and think Scar original name was trash.

    There was a book about Mufasa and Scar's childhood which delved into their backstory. Scar was originally name Taka (which means "waste" in Swahili) envied his brother when he learned that he was to be heir to the throne. When he stumbled upon the hyenas, an adolescent Shenzi suggested that he show up Mufasa. When Mufasa tries to reason with a greedy buffalo who was hogging up the water, Taka challenged the buffalo to fight Mufasa, but this backfired when the buffalo attacked him and slashed his eye with his horn. After Mufasa managed to calm the heard done, Taka adopted the name "Scar" as a reminder of his reckless mistake.

    Honestly, I found the remake, like most remakes, simply a different form. I enjoyed it. Maybe not as much as the original, but I don't think it was bad. Then again, I enjoy movies, not film. It doesn't matter much to me. *A normal audience member*

    What my problem with the remake is it doesn't invoke the same emotion as the original movie did. I'll give an example: In the original stampede scene after mufasa falls and simba calls out to his dad,he sounds worried and concerned. With the lines: "dad c'mon you gotta get up (tearfully) dad? We gotta go home" Not going to lie that scene still makes me cry a little even more so now,I lost my dad to cancer in 09 and that scene resonates more with me. In the remake the same level of emotion is not present in that scene. When simba is calling out for his father his voice sounds like he's annoyed rather than concerned. It definitely took me out of the scene and didn't spark any reaction from me. Whereas the original I still cry,it has nothing to do with nostalgia but, rather acting and beliveability. I mean honestly there's something wrong if a cartoon can spark real emotions of sadness from me and a live action adaptation does nothing. These are just my 2 cents on the subject.
