I’ll confess to being pleasantly surprised Disney has permitted a reboot of my favorite childhood movie. The Lion King is, as the enlightened like to put it, problematic.

The kingdom is a hierarchical one–a monarchical one, more precisely–that maintains strict borders. It is safe and prosperous because of these things. When the rightful ruler is usurped and the borders opened to an incompatible species, the kingdom collapses into destitution and dictatorial despair.

The one capable of restoring the kingdom is initially so wallowing in feelings of guilt and self-pity to do what he must do. A hedonistic life of grubs and games is so much… easier.

Heroes, however, are not made to be pets. Ancestral voices echo through time to intervene in a carefree existence that is wasting away, snapping the hero out of it: “You have forgotten me and so you have forgotten who you are. Look inside yourself. You are more than you have become.”

Chastened and with courage restored, the rightful regent bursts back onto the scene, throws out the invaders, and reclaims for the lions what has been taken from them.

  1. Story reminds me of Samson in the Old Testament. Lived a life of hedonism until blinded, finally seeing the truth and sacrificing his life for his people.

  2. I always thought it was derivative of Hamlet with a wider scope for its lesson. That’s OK, sometimes the classics are the best even when served up reheated; for instance my favorite from Korusawa, “Ran” which was basically King Lear set in medieval Japan.

    Of course, everyone knows it’s not the best Disney movie ever, that belongs to another distinguished entry…

    Peace.

    That's true, and their conduct to the Japanese was quite shameful, way beyond plagiarizing. Although, the Japanese work was somewhat inspired by Bambi - it wasn't really ripoff.

    I think it is kind of funny when you add Hamlet into the mix. You have an English play, an American (white) cartoon, and a Japanese cartoon. And who is cast for the voices? A lot of blacks. Maybe, two Jews (one gay), and, i believe, only one gentile. As many gentiles as gay Jews. No Japanese whatsoever. We pretend like blacks created it.

    Not that I really care. I don't really believe in the idea of cultural appropriation. If Nigerians want to make black Hamlet, I couldn't care less. And I'm mystified why they find Tarzan offensive - the jungle is a generic environment and not something blacks invented.

    But what I find to be past any reasonable tolerance is this diversitarian ideology which has infected European culture. For instance, invaders and white marxists telling us we can't have a movie like Lord of the Rings anymore because it is too white. Doesn't matter that it was written by a European, based on his love of European mythology and history - and thus unique and interesting. Not something a globalist could write. I mean, they would cut out Minas Tirith so as not to offend the Turks and make the Orcs the good guys, so as to to offend blacks.

    LION KING is total pro-black propaganda.

    The good lion king and queen are by blacks.

    The bad lion has a European voice: Jeremy Irons.

    The young lion, though white/Jewish in voice, regards the black-voiced lion and lioness as his parents.

    So, the message to young white kids is “Look to blacks as your soul-brothers and hate the white soul.”

    It’s no wonder that white kids who grew up on LION KING turned into Obama-ites and Magic Negro worshipers.

    I stopped watching after 20 min.

    It begins with a lion cub being born, and ALL THE ANIMALS bowing down before it. Why? Lions EAT other animals. Again, this is Negro propaganda. In the US, blacks are predators and go around robbing, raping, and murdering everyone, but we are all supposed to bow down before Negroes as Wakanda gods and super-athletes. So, never mind is Negroes ruin your city, kick your butt, and turn your women onto jungle fever. Just bow down before the Negro Kangz cuz they be winning in sports.

    Also, why are hyenas the bad guys? Hyenas are better hunters than lions, and 80% of the time, it’s lions that steal food from hyenas, not vice versa.

    When I saw the early Schwarzenegger flick Raw Deal, I kept thinking how much better it would have been if they had copied Yojimbo.

    Westerns I think acknowledged the influence, both ways. The politics of the Disney thing were pretty ugly though. They never acknowledged the connection even though the Japanese lion was called "Kimba." Disney actually tried to sue them or something, to try to keep their more recent movie off the screen.

    I still need to watch The Hidden Fortress to see how it influenced Star Wars. I was watching a bad Japanese knockoff of Star Wars the other day, Message from Space. Then to my amusement, unless the plot had been leaked ahead of time, I realized that Return of the Jedi had copied it. They had flown into the center of the Death Star to destroy it, so to speak

    Even if that were true, I could care less!

    The Eastwood movie reinforces the meme that Frank Morris was the mastermind, that he received little help from the redneck Anglin boys.

    By contrast, there is some interesting evidence from family members that the Anglin brothers, being highly resourceful "country boys" and excellent swimmers from youth, might have figured out a way, with the help of someone on the outside, to tow themselves from the prison, by way of a nightly ferry, to a waiting boat out in the channel. It's also possible that they might have indeed gone to Angel Island, but I found the ferry notion pretty persuasive.

    However, Clint's line to the black gang leader remains an all-time classic....

    “The Shawshank Redemption is a rip off of the Clint Eastwood Movie Escape From Alcatraz.”

    Not entirely. Shawshank was likely inspired, at least partly, by an earlier – lesser – movie staring Sylvester Stallone from the 1980s – Lockup. It has the same general premise and even some of the same scenes: wrongly imprisoned man tortured by an evil warden, a young kid whom the protagonist takes under his wing, the young kid gets killed on orders of the warden, prisoners harass the protagonist, the protagonist makes an escape attempt through pipes/water, the warden is exposed at the end and the cops close in on him, both characters are thrown into solitary, etc.

    Wrong. Rita Hayworth and the Shawshank Redemption was written by Stephen King in like 1983, 4 years after Escape From Alcatraz, and several years before that Stallone yarn. If anything, the movie Lockup ripped off the King novel.

    Consider the following similarities between Andy Dufresne and Frank Morris that are too specific to be coincidence:

    Both befriend a black inmate (although the character of "Red" was not black in the book) who ultimately provides them with a tool used for their escape.
    Both find some sort of insect in their food at their first meal in prison and give it to another inmate who feeds it to his pet.
    The old guy in both movies, upon losing their reason for living, inflicts harm upon himself.
    Both Dufresne and Morris are approached first in the shower room by a homosexual bull looking for a "kid/punk." Each has recurring interactions with their queer antagonist throughout the first part of the movie.
    Both discover that the masonry in their cell walls is soft and begin to dig holes into them.
    Both deposit the debris from their cell walls in the prison yard through a hole in their pants pockets.
    Both work in the library in some capacity.

    Other, more general similarities:

    Both well above average IQ
    Both fall under the close attention of the Warden.
    The Warden in both movies is abusive.
    Both spend time in solitary confinement.
    Both use their duties within the prison to assist with their escape plan.

    Now, preemptively speaking, I'm not saying this is big deal or that Shawshank is a bad movie (it's pretty good), but let's be honest about it. The scene in SR when they are categorizing books for the library and come upon The Count of Monte Cristo, the movie is basically admitting that it is a simulacrum of TCofMC, at least as far as the themes of revenge and redemption go. (The movie Sleepers pays similar homage to Cristo.)
