The Lion King ★★★★★

It's been AGES since I saw this, and suffice to say, this was absolutely phenomenal. The animation is breathtaking and the voice acting is absolutely aces especially for James Earl Jones and Jeremy Irons. Practically as flawless as I remember it, this is a truly remarkable film. For those complaining about remakes, this is essentially a remake as well. It's basically Hamlet, but with animals set somewhere in Africa. Yet it doesn't change the fact the story is extremely well told, as it blends in the musical numbers that drive the story and characters. It's a great film, period.
