Reviewer Thinks The Lion King Used Real Animals

10 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I just saw this review and I cannot stop cackling.

This reviewer really thought that they filmed animals in Africa and just dubbed voices over them.

 

Quote

This “Lion King” features live lions, cubs, hyenas, mixed with some CGI characters. You can bring a cub to water but you can’t make him drink. Or smile. The result is that “The Lion King” feels like a National Geographic documentary with narration sort of synched to close-ups.

 

These beasts aren’t being observed, a la Jean-Jacques Annaud’s “The Bear.” They’re being manipulated to “act.” Some take direction well, others not so much. Since the animals can’t really act, they also can’t be choreographed.

It's not a reviewer. It's Roger Friedman. One of Madonna's biggest critics ever and actually most female popstars. 

He's usually wrong about everything.

 

But even for him this is...bad :deadbanana2:

Nope, he's a legit reviewer. It's the whole purpose of the site other than entertainment news.  :deadbanana4:

I mean, he doesn't count for RT or anything but he's still a reviewer. That's one of the main sections of the website.

 

Also, I knew his name was familiar. I forgot about the Madonna stuff. :skull:

To be fair, that's kinda what they did with seven-time Academy Award nominated Babe (granted that was farm animals). Mostly real animals that had their mouth movemets and facial expressions manipulated via CGI. Funnily the emoting worked just fine there.
