#FOWC: remorse

Remorse

I love The Lion King. It’s been my all-time favorite movie since the first time I saw it. The notorious Uncle Scar manipulates little Simba to believe he’s responsible for Mufasa’s death. Scare wanted first place, Pride Rock, and the title of “King”. He had a selfish agenda and zero remorse. He was going to do whatever necessary to achieve his mission.

I can’t imagine being Simba and seeing his daddy fall to his death. Responsibility? Running from his past? Eeeeehhhhh, I’m not in agreement with that. Simba grew to face his past, and he displayed his remorse to Rafiki, his mother, and everyone who counted on him.

At the time of the accident, he was too young to piece everything together; however, Serobi and the Lionesses disappointed me. Scar had a pattern of ill behavior. They never should have believed a thing he said.

Timon and Pumba taught Simba about free life and enjoying it day by day. They were exactly who Simba needed at the time they found him. Pumba cracks me up. He’s a warthog; remorse falls upon his personal space embarrassingly quite often. I give kudos to Timon for being his sidekick and endearing friend.

  1. A line from the movie that I quote quite often: After Rafiki whacks Simba on the head with his staff Simba says, “Ouch! What was that for?” And Rafiki says, “It doesn’t matter! It’s in the past!” Words to live by…

    1. I have a love/hate opinion of that. I’m always looking forward to a great movie, in it’s own right. Even with the remakes, if it’s good, I thoroughly enjoy it. On the other hand, the animations are pieces of my childhood. Those versions do deserve preservation. No one should try to munipule the movie solely for revenue purposes. I don’t believe ” impressive modern day advances” is the intention with remakes.
