Honest Trailers - The Jungle Book (2016)
The Jungle Book remake (reboot, live action adaptation, or whatever you choose to call it) was a stunning film. The CG was breathtaking, the story itself was told exactly like Disney’s (pretty much) and you couldn’t help but fall in love with the exuberant energy the film just radiated. Outside of the first Pirates of the Caribbean movie, this is the best Disney live action movie of its kind yet.
(BUT, and with me there is always a big, juicy, but) that does not mean the awesome Jungle Book adaptation is is not going to get the Honest Trailer treatment, because every good movie (that has some holes, like all moms do) gets an Honest Trailer treatment these days. It is almost a brand of honor, Hell, when Deadpool got one, he ended up narrating it for crying out loud, so even the filmmakers tend to find humor in these.
And we all have to admit, we may watch some of these movies and think the exact things the Honest Trailer guy says, so you can’t even be mad. It is poking someone you love with a stick. It doesn’t mean you don’t love them but poking them and pissing them off now and then can be fun, too.
Trust me, I am a good guy during the day and a villain at night. I understand both sides of the coin.
