Movie Review: #THEJUNGLEBOOK Beautiful... Will Leave You Breathless

He's Back. RAMA delivers another great review.

Beautiful... Will leave you breathless and in awe


Disney’s live action THE JUNGLE BOOK is the most beautiful film you’ll see this year. It’s absolutely stunning in every sense of the word. It leaves you breathless and in awe. This has been a great year so far, because just like what “Deadpool” has done to superhero genre and “Hardcore Henry” has done to action, THE JUNGLE BOOK is also a total game-changer in terms of family adventure film, it goes to show you that the future of cinema has arrived and it’s looking bright. This is such a masterfully crafted film so much so that you can’t wait to get your hands on the Blu-Ray so that you can watch the bonus features that would hopefully answer that million dollar question, ‘How did they do that?’

Mowgli (Neel Sethi) is a man-cub raised by a family of wolves but as he grows older, the jungle has become unsafe for him when fearsome tiger Shere Khan (Idris Elba) promises to devour him. Guided by his mentor Bagheera (Ben Kingsley) and Baloo the bear (Bill Murray) Mowgli struggles between his desire to stay in the jungle and the possibility of joining the world he’s not familiar with, the humans.

I think we can all agree that the big winner of this Jungle Book movie is the visual effects. The photorealism will blow your mind, you won’t stop talking about it with your friends long after you’ve watched the film, because it looks as if Neel Sethi’s Mowgli may actually be acting alongside what appears to be an actual bear, you can’t tell the difference anymore. And the entire time, the way the movie was shot, makes you even feel like you’re in the jungle with Mowgli. Technology has come a long way and impressive doesn’t even begin to describe it.

Whether you’ve read Rudyard Kipling’s stories or perhaps you grew up a fan of Disney’s 1967 animated classic, I’m not going to spend time making comparisons in this review, all I can say in regards to that is this new version doesn’t take away from nor does it negatively affect your love of the original materials, sure the animated movie was more upbeat and cheery, and some of you may be bothered that Kaa The Snake doesn’t get more screen time in this film but screenwriter Justin Marks and director Jon Favreau carefully assign each character with their respective function that would serve the big picture.

THE JUNGLE BOOK is also Disney’s perfect earth day celebration movie of the year. It’s not preachy, it’s not shoving environmental sermons down your throat, but in its own way, it instills that respect for nature in our hearts. The emphasis on the laws of the jungle, how everybody and everything has its place, and the metaphor of red flower that represents the colossal damage and catastrophe caused by forest fire. The themes resonate, they move you, they’re deeply affecting and they speak to audiences of all ages.

What a fantastic group of voice actors, Jon Favreau could not have surrounded himself with a more perfect group of talents, especially Idris Elba’s voice as Shere Khan, there’s true power and authority in Elba’s voice, when he speaks, the whole room stops whatever it is they’re doing and listens. There’s wisdom in Ben Kingsley’s voice, Scarlett Johansson is sultry as Kaa, and who else better to play a carefree character like Baloo than the legendary lovable funnyman Bill Murray, and newcomer Neel Sethi who plays Mowgli, is a revelation. There’s not a single false note in this film, the attention to details is remarkable, this is an incredible way to revive a classic story and make it even more timeless than it already is.

#TombRaider Official Trailer

Lara Croft is the fiercely independent daughter of an eccentric adventurer who vanished when she was scarcely a teen. Now a young woman of 21 without any real focus or purpose, Lara navigates the chaotic streets of trendy East London as a bike courier, barely making the rent, and takes college courses, rarely making it to class. Determined to forge her own path, she refuses to take the reins of her father’s global empire just as staunchly as she rejects the idea that he’s truly gone. Advised to face the facts and move forward after seven years without him, even Lara can’t understand what drives her to finally solve the puzzle of his mysterious death.



Going explicitly against his final wishes, she leaves everything she knows behind in search of her Dad’s last-known destination: a fabled tomb on a mythical island that might be somewhere off the coast of Japan. But her mission will not be an easy one; just reaching the island will be extremely treacherous. Suddenly, the stakes couldn’t b…

COOK-OFF! Trailer Starring Melissa McCarthy

Reality-show shenanigans mix with the true-life fiery-and-fierce world of competitive baking in the deliciously sly mockumentary COOK-OFF! As a buffet of quirky contestants prepare for the renowned Van Rookle Farms Cooking Contest, the heat is on to win a one million-dollar prize. The filmmakers follow them as the foodie media and celebrity judges descend on a hotel convention area to see which contestants rise, which ones fall, who will reveal their true nature, and who will find love with the contest’s costumed Muffin Man mascot.



Costarring a cast of improv geniuses including Melissa McCarthy, Ben Falcone, Stephen Root, Diedrich Bader, Wendy McLendon-Covey, Gary Anthony Williams, and Sam Pancake, the zesty COOK-OFF! is an affectionate nod to ordinary Americans who believe they’re one dollop of spray cheese away from achieving their dreams.
