The Jungle Book

Bill Murray as Baloo is my life:

“Come on, Mowgli. Let’s be on our way.” —Bagheera
“But I’m helping Baloo get ready for hibernation.” —Mowgli
“Bears don’t hibernate in the jungle.” —Bagheera
“Not full hibernation, but I nap. A lot.” —Baloo

In addition, I applaud Jon Favreau for taking this on and thank him for recreating a childhood favourite so wonderfully well. I was skeptical from the beginning. I wondered how and why he could possibly make a live-action movie about talking animals that wasn’t Air-Bud-terrible, but my worries were completely unfounded. He cast some absolutely incredible voice talent (Scarlett Johansson was brilliant as Kaa, and Christopher Walken as King Louie?! Genius!), introduced a child actor who is more than capable of holding his own against a bunch of CGI-d pros, AND included a smashing remix of the original soundtrack. So yeah, he nailed it.

Oh, man. This movie tugged at my heartstrings and tickled my funny bone all at once. I mean:

“This is Fury. He protects me from the creatures that crawl in the night. This is Destructor. She protects me from mosquitoes. This is Dream Crusher. He protects me from having unrealistic goals. And this is Debbie …”

It’s been a while…

It’s been a few days since I’ve entertained you all with my wit and charm, but I’m a very busy and important lazy person, so you shouldn’t be surprised. I do like to entertain, though, so in place of a one-liner (coming soon, I swear), please enjoy these Disney face swaps that a friend of mine found on my favourite time wasting site. They are all perfect, but I think the Hercules/Hades is my fave… or maybe Yzma and Kuzco.
