Just saw the live-action Jungle Book. As someone who thought the original Disney 2D-animated classic as a mere 'meh' (heresy, I know), I really really liked this version.

 

The first half-hour felt like a nature documentary, which makes for a very interesting setup. The backgrounds are oozing with nature, the cinematography is top-notch, and the animals are incredibly well-animated. Mowgli was also way more interesting as a main character than the stupid kid he was in the original. It also gave Raksha a bigger role, which makes sense because she IS Mowgli's mother.

The casting is also spot on. Bill Murray's Baloo comes off with all his lazy con-artistry, Ben Kingsley as Bagheera for that dignified touch, and Shere Khan being voiced by Eldris Elba is scary as flipping hell. Seriously, everytime he opened his mouth it's like he was going to freaking eat somebody.

 

Few complaints.

Spoiler:

I can't believe they killed Akila. I had a Boy Scout patch named after that guy, man :(

 

Most of the final fight is shot in complete darkness. Seriously, until it got to the burning forest section, it was almost impossible to see even on the big screen.

 

The songs aren't as good as the animated version, which we all knew coming in. They also mostly don't play until the ending credits, and even then we don't get the catchy cross-dressing part of the King Louie song. Most of all, it doesn't have the 'Thinking With His Penis' song at the end of the original Jungle Book (the 'My Own Home' scene), because that was my 2nd favourite song in the movie. Oh, and for added blasphemy, I never liked 'The Bare Necessities'.

 

Overall though, it was fantastic.

And then there was that time that Voltron was piloted by rappers, was saved by Sprite, and King Zarkon got served

But his face got all shitty
Because he's a bad kitty
And now he's washed up like Rivers Cuomo

Don't know how that worked, brah. Didn't Evangelista already have a trainer? Regardless, take it to a Pokemon Center ASAP.

That's great news. I've always wanted to own my own copy of the movie, and finding one on the Internet commends outrageous prices. And at better resolution too!

Now that FFXIV has been introduced into the godly art of Power Rangers poses, I decided to update my Job henshins for Dark Knight and made one for Warrior. (they're 20 second gifs, so they might take some time to load).

Spoiler:

I shout "Darkness... HENSHIN!" for this one.

Been playing World of Final Fantasy and it's pretty good.

Been waiting a long time for the FF series to do a fanservice game like this in a while that DOESN'T take itself too seriously (like Dissidia did, and terribly). And while I wasn't that interested in the game when it was announced, my brother bought and it's quite amazing. The soundtrack is great (with Hamauzu remixes of old faves), the combat is pretty interesting (even if starts very slowly and combat animations could be better), and the game is pretty dang funny.

The game has a series lore compendium like in Dissidia, but this one has tons of sass and very funny writing. Just look at these descriptions!

Also nice for the game to mention WHO voice-acted who, since they're just as important as the characters themselves. VAs should get recognition.
