Beyoncé has already exceeded within the mainstream industry over the course of three decades and now she’s creating her own lane where she is in competition with only herself. Legendary. :gaygacat5::gaygacat5::gaygacat5::gaygacat5:

If you're going to gush about something and end up scoring it a 4/5, I feel like you at least owe your readers a duty to state that one thing that stops it from being perfect, otherwise just give it the perfect score it deserves from the tone of your review.

Did you even bother to read before making this comment?

 

"The film draws inspiration across the continent, from Namibia to Lagos: but as The Lion King is set in east Africa, it would have been great to see a deeper inclusion of east African countries and cultures."

Film critics are harder to appease and give out perfect scores. 8/10 is Black Panther type of recognition if it can stay there. :angelo:

Is that the only 4/5 review in the OP? Or did I specifically mention the Guardian review in the post you quoted :confused:
