Jungle Book

I finally got to see “The Jungle Book” (2016 film) over the weekend and I cried, I knew that I was going to cry. I laughed, I felt worried, I felt excited. It was great! I always had a feeling that I was going to like it and I’ve been waiting for it all.

The only real complaint I had was that the Elephants looked suspiciously a lot like African elephants, except for the baby elephants, who did look like Indian elephants. I get that African elephants might look a little bit more impressive (and they have a few animals from all over,lol), but this in in India.

It’s a really good movie though, doesn’t have all the dancing and music, but there are couple of favourites that people will recognise. It is also obviously a bit more darker and because the animals are more “life-like”, if you are taking children, just be wary. It’s not necessarily violent, but there are deaths.

Neel Sethis as “Mowgli” was also a great little actor, extremely believable and he didn’t have that “stop and start” static that some child actors sometimes have. He was able to just go with the flow of it.

Would definitely give this 4 and a half out of 5 books, I was just a little disappointed with how they chose the look of the elephants. Everything else was fun and a good story.

Benedict Cumberbatch!

So technically this post is more like “Trickery Tuesday” rather than Magic Monday. It’s been a long weekend and I did not anticipate being out for so long on the Monday and I obviously had no Blog scheduled.

I am so excited though one of my most favourite actors is coming out to Australia and I am going to be going to be seeing him! It totally makes up for Matt Smith cancelling (although I do feel bad for whatever he is going through right now). I think that Benedict is a magical creature all on his own. Benedict Cumberbatch was born Benedict Timothy Carlton Cumberbatch in the UK and both of his parents are actors. Benedict Cumberbatch already had an agent by the time he finished Acting classes, which included a year off to teach English to Tibetan monks.

Just a small list of appearances he has made are:

Sherlock Holmes
The Hobbit (voice Actor)
Star Trek
12 Years a Slave
The fifth Estate

Ladies and Gentlemen we present to you the talented, the gorgeous, the utterly undeniably amazing Benedict Cumberbatch soon to be starring in Australia!
