Highly Suspect Reviews: The Lion King

The Lion King Movie Review

Much wailing and gnashing of teeth has been made before and since the early release of Disney’s photo-realistic CG Lion King remake but is it really as terrible as all that? I mean, it’s got Billy Eichner and Seth Rogen as Timon and Pumbaa, for FSM’s sake! Are the recent reviews typical overreactions to cows that shouldn’t be considered to be as sacred as all that? Or do we stare into the dead eyes of things that imitate life but have never lived, That Which Should Not Be, The Beast, awww, cute computerized big kittehs! Listen to Chris, Ben, and JC give their verdict.


DIRECTED BY: Jon Favreau

STARRING: Donald Glover, JD McCrary, Seth Rogen, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Alfre Woodard, Billy Eichner, John Kani, John Oliver, Beyonce Knowles, James Earl Jones, Florence Kasumba, Keegan-Michael Key, Eric Andre
