Hustlers is fine. Well directed and well acted, but never really came alive for me. JLo is good, but seeing Mercedes Ruehl was the best part.
The Lion King is a remarkable visual achievement! One of the most dazzling I’ve ever witnessed, in fact. Even more remarkable is that the heart and spirit of the original remains fully in tact even when the characters lack the same expression and depth of their animated counterparts. While no reimagining will ever likely top the ‘94 classic, this is a very strong companion piece.
