Jason watches THE LION KING in 3D

There's something about Disney bastardizing one of its greatest classics and trying to capitalize on the 3-D bandwagon that feels a little slimy. Slimy, but satisfying.

THE LION KING is arguably the apex of Disney's traditional (i.e., pre-Pixar) animation. I love this movie. So just seeing it again on the big screen was a treat. 'Nuf said.

The 3-D ranged from seamless to pointless. Yeah, it's well done. No, it doesn't add anything. And it often feels out of place with the inherently 2-D traditional animation. Yeah, I was curious to see how the 3-D would work, and I don't regret seeing it in 3-D. But I would've preferred seeing it in 2-D (but I think I knew that going in).
