I Hate Everything, in a shocking turn of events, seems to like something! I know, it contradicts his name, but Zootopia appears to be on his list of movies he actually legitimately enjoys.
What makes me think this? Well, in his newest video, I HATE SING (2016), he goes into great detail about how… wait for it… he hates Sing. During his very entertaining critique of Illumination Entertainment’s latest film, he compares it to another movie starring anthropomorphic animals that came out in 2016:
Angry Birds Zootopia.
He uses the example of Zootopia to illustrate how there is absolutely no reason for the characters to be animals, and how Illumination wasted any potential for humor or character development based on this. He claims that in Sing, the animals all do human things with zero acknowledgement of their animal traits, and that all the characters could be replaced with “grey goo people”. However, in Zootopia, he points out that the characters being animals “Is the entire point of the movie”. He then praises it further, saying “The people who made Zootopia actually had an idea for a movie”.
Now, why should you care what some guy on the internet has to say about Zootopia? I dunno. You don’t have to if you don’t want to. But he has got over 1 million subscribers on Youtube, so he’s a relatively big internet celebrity (of sorts). Him saying good things about Zootopia on his channel, which is all about ripping apart terrible movies (as seen in his Search For The Worst series), is a pretty good thing in my book. Plus his videos are fun, whether you agree with him or not.
Check out the video for yourself after the break, and let us know what you thought about Sing compared to Zootopia in the comments! The part where he begins asking “Why are they animals” starts at 11:15, and the comparison to Zootopia comes at 12:36.
