IMDB | Letterboxd | Trailer
This is an exceptional movie with stunning visuals. It’s a great adaptation of the 1967 Disney classic and the stories by Rudyard Kipling. While being a more modern and realistic approach to the story, it still manages to capture the magic and atmosphere of the original movie.
First of all I want to talk about the visuals. This movie is gorgeous. You immediately feel like you are in the jungle and not even once did I have the feeling that this was all made up. The use of special effects is terrific, you can’t see the difference between what’s real and what isn’t (and not much of it is real, so that’s even more impressive). The world that they have created is amazing and extremely big. It amazes me to think that they never even left their studio lot to go film in an actual jungle-like location.

Now who doesn’t love a good movie trailer? I know I do. Here are ten trailers I thought were important enough to be mentioned. Some of these are very recent, others not so much as I’ve included some of the Super Bowl trailers. Find the trailer I’m talking about by clicking on the title.
So a new trailer has dropped for this Finding Nemo-sequel and it looks fantastic. We get to see some of the new characters and some original ones as well. I like the explanation they gave in this trailer for the way she now remembers some things. However, I do fear this is going to be a bit repetitive as we again get to see the turtles, a dentist/doctor’s office and some scary kids.
Captain America: Civil War
I can’t say this enough, but I’m so excited to see this. It’s something I’ve been looking forward to for a long time and now it’s almost here. There’s already was a full trailer released, but this is the Super Bowl-spot. It’s got some amazing chanting in the background and has an epic feel to it.
In this trailer we actually get to see some other animals talk besides Scarlett Johansson as Kaa. I’m still not entirely convinced on these voices. Well, the cast is great, but it just doesn’t seem like these voices are coming from the animals. Though this iteration of Bare Necessities is amazing, I could listen to it all day.

So 2016 has quietly begun and I think that now is the excellent time to start looking forward. More specifically: start looking forward to all the movies that are coming out this year.
(My next post will be about books, I promise) I must say that it’s a long list. With long I mean seriously multiple pages long, which is why this post will be split up into two parts. According to IMDB, the go-to source of everything movie-related, there are more than 130 movies coming out and I reckon that that list isn’t even complete yet.
I’ll be sharing the top movies I’m excited about seeing in theatres (I’ve narrowed it down to about 20 movies, so still quite a lot). Just so you know, these are in no particular order and you can also click the title to watch the trailer.
Now let’s get started, shall we?
