you would think so, but some needed a sleep and a dump to figure it out.

And my earlier frustration blinded me to the fact that it wasnt Hamlet that Lion King was based on, it was Macbeth

I'm pretty sure Hamlet was the inspiration for the Lion King (son, king, etc) not MacBeth (crazy wife, kills the king, goes nuts). Maybe you're confusing the Lion King with Scotland, PA? Happens all the time.

I'm pretty sure Kimba was the inspiration for The Lion King, and Hamlet was the inspiration for Kimba, but let's not get into pedantry. They're all special in their own way.

I wrote a rather successful essay way back in highschool comparing the Lion King to Macbeth. There are a ton of similarities

What a breathtaking, visually stunning movie, despite some lame dialogue in the second half.

I kept thinking about Dances With Wolves while watching it, only this time the Indians won.

i thought it was all-in-all pretty awesome -- not just visually spectacular, but really emotionally engaging, crowd-enthralling action with characters i moderately cared about. it's a great film.

What is it that I posted that you couldn't comprehend? Was it the tongue in cheek tone that went over your head? Maybe you should take another shit and think about it for a while
