What's up, guys? Tigerfan45 here, and I'm back again. While Betep Stone and I are working on our fanfic, I just decided to make this post to pass the time. I will be taking various Disney films and their Non-Disney counterparts and deciding which one I like better. So, without further ado, it's time for Disney v. Non-Disney.
Round 1: The Lion King versus Kimba the White Lion
This is one I here a lot! A lot of people say that Lion king ripped off Kimba the white lion. Now, The Lion King I think is the better story. It was a coming of age story and it was about taking responsibility. Kimba the White Lion I felt wasn't bad, it just felt it was more written by pacifists, hippies, and vegans (no offense to anyone of my fellow Disney users who are). Overall, I prefer a The Lion King over Kimba the White Lion. Point goes to Disney!
Round 2: Aladdin versus The Thief and the Cobbler
Ah, yes, you didn't think I'd forget this one, did you? Now, I will not be discussing the recobbled cut, because I haven't seen that version of The Thief and the Cobbler. I am talking about the Miramax version of the film. The Thief and the Cobbler, I think is Ok. I will admit that the animation is amazing, and the voice acting (particularly Matthew Broderick and Jonathan Winters) is very good (except for Vincent Price, who is a great actor, but is really annoying in this movie!). However, the characters are not really interesting, nor do they get a lot of development, and the songs were pretty forgettable. Aladdin, I think is the better story, because it has better songs, it has more interesting and developed characters, besides, the romance between Aladdin and Jasmine is much mor interesting than Tack and Princess Yum-Yum. Also, Jafar is a WAY better villain than Zigzag! Overall, I prefer Aladdin over The Thief and the Cobbler. Point goes to Disney!
Round 3: Madagascar versus The Wild
Ok, maybe Thief and the Cobbler, Kimba the White Lion, Lion King, and Aladdin had some similarities, but these two movies have a whole LOT of similarities. In fact, the similarities that The Wild has with Madagascar are often pointed out as criticism against the film. Now, with Madagascar, I did enjoy the voice acting, the jokes, and the animation, but I kinda like The Wild a little better. Yes, the story is a little weak, but I really enjoy the humor. The jokes are very creative and the movie never uses pop culture references. Overall, I prefer The Wild over Madagascar. I'm not saying that Madagascar is a bad movie, far from it. I just enjoyed The Wild more. Point goes to Disney!
Round 4: Dinosaur versus The Land Before Time
Now, when I was a little kid, I was obsessed with dinosaurs. So, naturally, I loved both of these movies. Both of these movies I used to watch over and over again. In terms of realism, I would say that Dinosaur is better. However, just for enjoyability, I would definitely pick The Land Before Time. Sometimes I see myself enjoying The Land Before Time more than Dinosaur. So, here, I would say that The Land Before Time is better. Point goes to Don Bluth!
Round 5: The Great Mouse Detective versus An American Tail
Hmmm. I don't know. These movies are both pretty good. I mean, An American Tail helps us to feel sympathy for Fievel and Tiger was pretty funny. The Great Mouse Detective offers a fun adventure as Basil tries to stop Ratigan and rescue Mr. Flaversham. Here's one where I'm not sure which one to call the better movie. I guess it more depends on your taste. If you want a sad drama with some light-hearted moments here and there, then An American Tail is for you. But, if you want a fun and action-packed adventure, I would definitely point to The Great Mouse Detective. I declare a tie!
And that's all I have for now. Did you agree with any of my choices? If you disagree with me, please don't criticize me. I will also take requests for other rounds for this and for future posts. Until next time, this is Tigerfan45, See ya around!
