If you translate the opening of Circle of Life, they sing:
Here comes a lion, Father / Oh yes, it’s a lion / Here comes a lion, Father / Oh yes, it’s a lion / A lion We’re going to conquer / A lion A lion and a leopard come to this open place
It’s slightly less poetic and beautiful than what it sounds like. But who cares…

“Roger’s passing is virtually the end of an era and now the balcony is closed forever.” -Steven Spielberg
It might be too early to tell, but with the passing of Roger Ebert, it feels like we’re turning the page. Fact of the matter is, with newspapers having a hard time to survive and the rise of the vox populi, is there any place left for superstar reviewers like Roger Ebert?
Sure, intelligent movie journalism still exists, but most of it has moved towards blogs and podcasts. It’s not the same reality, the audience is much smaller. I doubt that a movie blogger could ever acheive the level of fame that Roger Ebert had. Besides,“At the Movies” (Ebert’s TV show) has been struggling for years to find decent movie reviewers.
You could disagree with Ebert, but he was a man of his opinion and one of the last great movie critics.
As he last said on his blog, “I’ll see you at the movies”.
