The King Returns! With Beyonce and ME, Simba!
Friday...July 19th...I'VE WAITED A YEAR AND A HALF FOR THIS PREMIERE.
My squad and I hit up the theaters to watch and critique this highly anticipated movie of the summer and quite possibly...of 2K19! I've heard so many comments and ridicule from those who have seen the early premiere even down to Rotten Tomatoes rating the film a D.
My personal feelings...first of all, this is my favorite movie of all time. My parents took me to see the movie when I was about 3 years old. I've rewinded the VHS over and over again as a child. There's nothing else to say. I've always loved the movie and had the utmost confidence in a great live action!
Conclusion: I think the movie was great! There were a few inaccuracies such as a random beef between Nala and Shenzi...the attempt to eat Nala was never that deep. Also, Ed didn't talk...also the scene with Timon and Pumbaa serving as the distraction happened in the wrong setting. So that's just to name a few. I also felt that a few moments were rushed like, the introduction to the conversation between Simba and Mufasa. ASIDE FROM THAT CRITICISM. I loved it. It was awesome to see The Lion King come to life a National Geographic Documentary! And...everyone was so worried about Beyonce's performance...which I can understand because she's not the greatest actor...but I think she did phenomenal. Right along with the rest of the cast.
If you haven't seen it yet, I encourage you to go see for yourself!
I had a blast with the squad!!!! AND I LOVED BEING SIMBA FOR A NIGHT!
