Like that faggot Razorfist insists that RLM's Plinkett reviews are the reason why the Star Wars prequels get so much shit: he refuses to acknowledge that the prequels were hated long before Plinkett existed.
Over here everyone hated The Phantom Menace when it came out, and no one knows/gives a fuck about RLM. Or about him.
...Far too often, idiots on YouTube construct bullshit arguments that blatantly ignore all of the facts that contradict their points. Like that faggot Razorfist insists that RLM's Plinkett reviews are the reason why the Star Wars prequels get so much shit: he refuses to acknowledge that the prequels were hated long before Plinkett existed.
Spoony said something similar, except HE was the first one to hate it and everyone contradicted him until the Plinkett reviews. Everyone was mocking The Phantom Menace right after it came out. Letterman did a skit where he was grilling Jar Jar's head on a barbecue. The newspaper comic strip Marvin had a strip where the titular baby was dressed as Jar Jar and people refused to give him candy. "No candy for you, Jar Jar!" (I remember this one because I had to explain it to my Grandma who had no idea what a Jar Jar was.)
Someone here must've watched all 2 and a half hours of dogfucker's autism: does he ever address that there are numerous connections between Disney and Kimba, or does he try to argue that all of the connections are lies and coincidences? I'm sure he could put together a reasonable argument that Kimba's plot is very different from The Lion King's plot, but any balanced argument about the plagiarism accusations that are thrown at The Lion King should acknowledge that Disney were clearly full of shit when they tried to claim they had never heard of Kimba.
YMS sources interview footage of this man, Fred Ladd - producer of the Americanization of Kimba, and why he changed the original Americanization name from Simba to Kimba but failed to leave in that the producer himself thought the similarities between the films were uncanny.
Honestly, a lot of the writers for The Lion King probably just grew up with Kimba and brought over elements.
Perhaps it's just more appealing because the details are vague and never been flat out confirmed - it's interesting to speculate about "what really happened" compared to simply having facts that leave no space for imagination.
Also, you don't have to be fan of anything to dislike Raisinfister. I think that should be natural reaction to him at all times.
