    The Lion King

    ★★★

    While this film has stunning visuals, the emotions felt within the animated classic are absent within this film. The movie feels so real that I am unable to experience the joy from the characters when singing or the heartbreaking moments from the characters.

    Gunn once again offers a upbeat soundtrack but utilizes a band…
