How... can you say... they made Shere Khan menacing? They made him a laughing sock. They made Baloo a jester. And Bhaghera, one of the *wisest* and most respected creatures in the jungle, they turned into a bumbling bufoon!
Khar - don't even me started! One of the most feared creatures of the jungle, again pulled down from his imposing position to be made fun of. The elephants were just awful. And the wolves - that actually play a really big part in the book - and brushed over in a manner of seconds.
I HATE DISNEY'S JUNGLE BOOK. I grew up on those books being read to me by my dad, and I love Disney a lot. But Jungle Book is the worst film they've ever done. Granted they don't stay true to all the stories (Cinderella book, one of the ugly sister cuts off her toes to make the slipper fit - read the Brother's Grimm) but in the Jungle Book, they took a fabulous and involving story and turned it upside down, shook it around and reguritated some utter... ..
Okay, I feel better now. No offence to anyone who actually likes
that film. I just... don't.
But here, to detract from angry Silver, have some quotes:The Little Mermaid:
Scuttle: This! This I haven't seen in years! This is wonderful!
Ariel: What is it?!
Scuttle: A banded, bulbous, snarphlat.
Ariel: Oh - he's very handsome, isn't he?
Scuttle: I 'unno, he looks kind of hairy and slobbery to me.
Scuttle: I was flying - I mean, of course I was flying and I saw the watch - the witch! Watching herself in the mirror and she was singin' with a stolen set of pipes! [Whacking Sebastian on the floor] Do you hear what I'm tellin' you? The prince is marryin' the sea witch in disguise!
Sebastian: Are you sure about dis?
Scuttle: Have I ever been wrong?.... I mean when its important?!Cinderella
Cinderella: [to Bruno] Dreaming again?
Cinderella: About Lucifer?
Cinderella: Catch him this time?
Bruno nods enthusiastically
Cinderella: [sharply] Thats bad!
Gus: [On spotting some teal beads pointed out to him by Jacque] OOOOO! BEADS! Hercules
Meg: [After following in a hord of Hercules fangirls and spotting feet behind a curtain] Lets see what's behind door number 3!
Hades: [having spotted Pain wearing Hercules sandals] I am 24 hours away from the biggest venture and you are WEARING HIS MERCHENDISE!!!! [hears slurping behind him to see Panic drinking a Hercules slushie]
Panic: [nervous laugh] Heh... thirsty?
