两部卡通,Horton Hears a Who!与The Lion King

Horton Hears a Who!

挺天马行空的卡通,让我每隔几分钟就要笑一次。说这部卡通原著是讽刺麦肯锡主义,现在看来,真是让身处和谐社会的在下深有感触。不管是森林中被煽动的无知群众,还是无名镇被和谐掉的声音,还有粉饰太平鼓吹盛世的百年庆典,放在这部片上演的2008年实在讽刺之极。绝对不可忽略不容错过的一部卡通,7/10。

The Lion King

一直对这部片没兴趣,90年代围绕我的都是B级恐怖片,年纪大了又对这种卡通提不起兴趣了。前两年偶然收了汉堡卡司录音,最近顺搭收了巴黎卡司,好奇之下又听了南非卡司,慢慢觉得还是不错听,特别是故事原地南非录音的敲击乐器与吹奏乐器,给剧子增加了更多的多彩的原始风格。对于卡通,我是为了了解剧情才去看。十多年前的2D卡通,流畅的动物姿态,与当下满目的3D动画相比,让我想起Sunset Boulevard中Norma愤怒地喊出:

There once was a time in this business when I had the eyes of the whole world! But that wasn’t good enough for them, oh no! They had to have the ears of the whole world too. So they opened their big mouths and out came talk. Talk! TALK!

虽然故事比较幼稚,但是我还是看得十分感动,特别是对应音乐剧中They Live in You的两场戏,其对应的配乐Under the Stars亦十分动听。不过我对于故事中的宿命论则不是太感冒。还是十分值得看的经典,7/10。
