Yes, THAT Hideo Kojima! The genius behind the Metal Gear Series! And apparently, a big fan of Zootopia!
Recently, he made a youtube video with his friend, Kenji Yano (who is another major player on the Metal Gear team), going through and rating, in great detail, what he considers to be the Top Ten movies of 2016 (so far). And where did he put Zootopia?
Well, you’ll have to check it out for yourself! (spoiler alert: it’s very close to the top!)
Here are some of our favorite quotes: (translations taken from Subtitles- if there’s a better translation, we’ll update it)
“Absolutely portrays Today’s US. Very remarkable the way they were able to do this in a movie for kids!”
“There are no movies like this in Japan.”
“If you see it with a kid, the kid will enjoy it, but an adult will see something deeper in it.”
“The search for the culprit, the placement of each character, is great.”
“I would love to see a movie like this one from the Japanese industry.”
“The sloth… oh, it just drove me insane at the beginning!”
“I feel like I could go on for about 2 hours.”
We’re right there with you, Hideo! We could go on and on and on about how incredible this movie is!
Check out the video for yourself after the break!
