Beauty and the Beast

Disappointing

(Edit) 03/05/2018

A waste of the talents of the actors and the wonderful animators. Redundant, too, as the original animation was so wonderful. This film completely lacked charm and magic. Kevin Kline's is the only worthwhile characterisation.

The Jungle Book

Great

(Edit) 03/05/2018

I know the original well and wasn't sure whether to watch this. I'm glad I did because it was terrific. Full of fun and adventure, pathos and jeopardy. Wonderful CGI. Mowgli's American accent grated on my ears but I managed to overlook it in the excitement of the story. I liked the way the songs from the original animation were referenced but the story was sufficiently different that the audience didn't always know what was going to happen next. Highly recommended.
