The Jungle Book Spectacular Revival Of Disney’s Family Favourite

The Jungle Book Spectacular Revival Of Disney’s Family Favourite

The Jungle Book Spectacular Revival Of Disney’s Family Favourite. Hyperborean digital animation meets old-fashioned storytelling in this faithful remake, which loses the songs but brings new, ingenious twists on the original.

What on earth is the point of remaking Walt Disney’s great and possibly greatest masterpiece, the glorious animated musical from 1967, based on Kipling’s tales, all about the “man cub” Mowgli, brought up by wolves in the Indian jungle – famously the last film to get Disney’s personal touch? A remake which furthermore leaves old-fashioned animation behind, departing for the live-action uncanny valley of hypertext CGI, which hermetically loses most of the songs and which also abandons the original’s last, unforgettably exotic glimpse of a real-life human girl?Well, no point really … other than simply to create a terrifically enjoyable piece of old-fashioned storytelling and a beautiful-looking film: spectacular, exciting, funny and fun. read more

Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens

Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens

Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens is the film that J.J. Abrams was put on Earth to make, as evidenced by the “Star Wars” echoes in his hit series “Lost,” and the way he kept trying to turn “Star Trek” into “Star Wars.” These tendencies could seem cutesy or irritating elsewhere, but they make sense in an according-to-Hoyle “Star Wars” movie.

This new one, set 30 years after the events of “Return of the Jedi,” is funny, touching, and surprisingly light-footed. It boasts a lot of familiar elements, including Skywalker family mythology and another Death Star-type weapon, as well as self-aware lines about how things work in this series. read more
