Some movies are just too good the first time around.
The visuals were incredible. Truly, it was difficult most of the time to tell where real turned into graphics.
I feel bad even writing this because I do kind of cringe when things not related to a movie are brought in as a measure. That being said, I can't dismiss some of the small quirky moments of the animated film that really made it endearing.
Whoopi's Mufasa shiver...I don't know how you would replicate it but that changes the whole atmosphere of the Hyenas. Simba getting knocked on the head. Classic moments.
Simba's return seemed less impactful in this version. Didn't feel the struggle and importance of that decision like in the animated version.
I didn't care for Donald Glover's rendition of Simba. One of the things about James Earl Jones is that is voice is so clear, he annunciates every syllable, he delivers with a fervent performance, he has power, clarity, and meaning. I didn't feel that with Mr. Glover. Fair comparison to anyone? Not really, but I didn't feel anything for his performance here. I feel really bad for anyone who has to sing opposite Beyonce. Even most professional recording artists.
Overall it just fell flat.
If you care about history or politics...wow!
Is there any role that Daniel Day Lewis doesn't bring his all in?? He did such an incredible job bringing the tormented but determined Lincoln to the big screen.
It's interesting to see the parallels between modern day politics. A truly informative and must see movie.
You never learn about American history without learning of Lincoln, this is why.
Only complaint is, it ends, then it doesn't, then it ends, then it doesn't.
Remarkable movie with the insight and story. Jesse Eisenberg owns this role.
Sorkin...need I say more.
I never read the book but it gives an incredible insight on cold calculating reality, and the how Facebook started it's laid back culture.
Justin Timberlake's performance just added to the appeal. Some actors here who really took off and their performances were spot on.
Armie Hammer...what can I say? I legit thought he was a twin until I looked it up and found out he played both roles.
Low expectations going in but truly thought this film was really well done. I was surprised. Certain themes recur in Hollywood but I enjoyed the story.
The visuals were cool without being super cheesy or overwhelming. The cast was incredible...sooo many great actors.
Awesome action sequences with a little romance, and gritty darker reality (thanks Mr. Rodriguez).
I think the Audience score (93%) is a much better reflection than the tomatometer(61%). Not really sure why so low??
