The Jungle Book
Beautiful rendered, but with the majority of the animal cast seemingly phoning their parts in they seem so disinterested, the first half is pretty dull and boring. And Idris Elba just isn’t very convincing at all. I seem to be the only person in the world who just doesn’t rate him…
And then Baloo shows up and the wonderful Bill Murray breathes some fun and life into things. And King Louie too is amazing.
The final battle with Shere Khan is action packed and highly enjoyable and made my daughter jump (along with the lady on the other side of me too!), saving the movie from the snooze inducing first half.
My watch-list of movies and TV shows continues to grow, while my spare time continues to shrink. Occasionally though, I’ll manage to tick one off the list, and then try to come up with some words about it that make me sound as though I know what I’m talking about. “Once he has discovered something, he wants to be off onto the next thing, rather than spending time and elaborating” – snippet from my primary school report, confirming that I am, and always have been, easily distracted.
