  1. Both have their merits so I wouldn't mind either way but if I had to pick one I'd say same side as well. Though if I went to a fancy restaurant I think it would be more polite/appropriate to sit on opposite sides.

    Spend a weekend on a cruise ship, yes or no?

    That's exactly the issue. The original Lion King is good, so of course the remake is gonna be good by default as long as it's true to the source material. The visuals are definitely impressive but they're unfitting, and the story itself is impressive but that's because it's literally from a movie that already exists and nearly everyone loves.

    The point of the movie isn't to be innovative, Disney are aware that everyone already knows it is a copypaste story. I don't see the problem :p Compare this to the star wars reboot. The Force Awakens was supposed to be the continuation of the saga, the start of an adventure with new characters and a new story, yet everything is a copypaste. That's something to be criticized.


  3. Well of course. It is in fact among my favorite animated movies of all time. A true masterpiece. I saw the cgi "live action" remake today. It has been getting a lot of negative comments recently, so I was curious to see what I would think. And just as most people also say, it's almost a shot for shot remake of the original with a few lines, shots and choreography changed here and there to make it fit with the more realistic theme.

    Honestly, I don't think it deserves all the negative criticism it's getting. The movie was - just as the original - very good.  It is the same movie after all. What you could argue is, however, that since the movie is meant to be more realistic looking (And it really is! The team has done an amazing job, the landscape almost looks like it's filmed in real locations) they are unable to include these silly moments or artistic scenes such as the scene with the animals during the song "I just can't wait to be king". Since they aren't going with the animated look, they are unable to give the animals certain expressions and quirks that made their characters unique and interesting in the original. This is a fair criticism but again, as the point with this movie is to make it more realistic I believe they did it really well.

    Lastly I see a lot of people shitting on the movie because they did not take any risks by making changes to the story and they are only making this movie for nostalgia cash grabs. While this might be true, I think that 1. This is what I prefer. I would have been sad to see them change the story I love so much. That's why I went to see the film after all. 2. This is criticism that should be targeted towards Disney, not the movie. The reason why the film was made should not matter if the film itself is good.


  4. haha well I don't really like bnha that much, superhero stuff has always been cringy to me, but just as with opm I'll be watching the fourth season because the animation and music is good and how could I otherwise argue with all the bnha fans when it's time for the yearly anime awards?

    Seriously though, it'll be interesting to see where they take the story from here. I have not read the manga for obvious reasons, though I do have an idea of where things are heading. Maybe the League of Villains will actually have Shigaraki be a major impactful enemy in this season as they totally blew all opportunities with the joke of a villain from last season that was All For One. Maybe they'll dump him and mr beak guy is the next threat.

    I don't watch in dubs so this trailer might not be as relevant for me but I haven't seen the japanese one yet anyway. By the way, Invisible Girl is my favorite character we have seen so far. Bakugo is my least favorite :p sorry op. no wait, my least favorite is Mineta.

    Oh! And I hope this season will have great OPs and EDs too as that's one of the things I actually enjoy about the series. Got quite a few of them on Spotify, in fact.
