Again, someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I really don't think that's how the scene went in the original story. Hardship can build a good character. Cut to forty years later, Moses' generation of Hebrews completely die out and their descendants are left to finish their work. So Joshua goes up to his room by the way, the hell is up with the dramatic commencing battle music playing over this scene? And they may have had a legit desire to teach these lessons from the bible, and that motivated them to actually try to make this movie. He's basically this pixie thing who narrates the whole story constantly flying in and out of the fourth wall. And you thought many similar things to what I was thinking as I watched it.
It took you four years to put together this poorly composed and poorly edited story with little characterization and no clever writing or subtlety in favor of rushed exposition and poorly implemented morals that don't connect to anything. Uhh no, that doesn't really work here. In fact, they almost look 2-dimensional. By the way, I should also mention this movie has some strange moments where it really tries to be overly cartoony with its goofy transitions and spontaneous gags. Those screencaps look horrid enough as static images. So Moses and Joshua finally come down from the mountain with the Ten Commandments engraved on the stone tablets, and to their dismay they see the Hebrews worshiping a statue of a golden calf.
I can't believe you watched the whole thing. So Joshua reports to Moses that the inhabitants of the Promised Land are evil and that taking it over so that the Hebrews can move in is the right solution as much as a dick move as that sounds, it was in the original story. It wasn't just trying to be a different movie based off the same source material. Joshua and a bunch of elders hike up Mount Sinai with Moses, and Joshua is to wait for 40 days. Pig Ass shows up again and- oh, so it's revealed that Chris and Pig Ass were actually the same person. The freed slaves being the ungrateful pricks they were in the Bible object to the plan and declare they want to go back to Egypt. That looks like a naked human wearing a translucent morph suit! If the movie you're posting hasn't been posted in the last two weeks, then you may post it.
It took you four years to make this piss-poor inaccurate adaptation of the Bible. Low-budget Disney and Dreamworks knockoff movies are everywhere and have existed for years. So we see that Joshua's family doesn't seem to get along well. So then what the fuck did Joshua actually learn from his dream?! There is nothing faithful to the original source material. Anyway, back to the movie.
That's literally all that happens. Those Pixar shorts from the 80's have aged better than this. One scene later God tells Moses that only two people, Joshua and Caleb, will actually live to enter the Promised Land. He just fucking sits down and his present somehow instantly mends his parent's relationship! Okay seriously, what is up with the trend of all these bad Exodus movies?! This movie, Exodus: Gods and Kings, Moses: Egypt's Great Prince? He doesn't lecture them about some usual Biblical lesson like faith and love or something. But then again, considering how how stoned the animation makes Joshua look half the time, maybe this is just a normal occurrence for him. Ok, it's not a full movie, but it's a 14 minute short.
Moses destroys the tablets in rage, has his people melt down the Golden Calf and force them to drink its liquefied gold. She also marries one of the men, I think? Ehhh I've read reviews of that but I'm not sure what to think of it, being it does that thing that the 2016 Robinson Crusoe movie did telling an iconic story as a more kiddified version through the animals' perspective which is a type of story I'm not particularly a fan of. ? The next scene is of Joshua and Chris chatting at a campfire, and again, Joshua does legit sound disturbingly stressed and traumatized in this scene. He doesn't try to teach his parents anything he saw in his Biblical experience. I can't possibly imagine them animated.
They just look like lifeless blobs of clay! By the time you got home, you would be fucking traumatized! Imagine if you were in Joshua's situation. Chris then makes Joshua do some kind of astral projection thing and transfers his body into that of the Biblical Joshua who in this movie is represented as an adult lion. Yeah, strangely Joshua seems to be perfectly calm with this ghostlike animal just appearing in his room. So another drawn-out poorly animated battle sequence ensues, Joshua wins the war with the help of a bunch of angels, and Chris asks Joshua if he's ready to wake up. It just distracts the mood and ruins any seriousness going on in the scene! No, I'm not making that up; the movie took another dark turn out of nowhere.
And yes, they still have Joshua's kid voice come out of an adult lion's body, which is pretty distracting as you'd expect. His parents argue a lot and they tend to be strict and unsupportive towards their son. He even interrupts the freaking battle sequence that follows! Join other movie fanatics in our CyTube. Why are we defending this obvious cash-in? First of all, the characters. Message the mods so it can be removed.
Also the Pharaoh's headdress randomly changes colors between shots lol and leads his army out to recapture the slaves. So Joshua's parents are arguing at the dinner table, Joshua comes over and sits down okay weirdly I have to admit I lowkey like the background music in this scene; it's ambient and kind of relaxing , and. Egypt's Great Prince was meant to be a deliberate direct low-budget cash-in to milk off the Prince of Egypt's success. Our bot automatically removes dead links, this may have been what happened, message mods to inquire. It came out in the same year as Prince of Egypt and only exists to ride of its success. .
