    The Fall 2006

    ★★★★½ Rewatched 28 Apr, 2016

    The most gorgeous movie ever made? Probs.

    Is it really pretty, though? Sure, the tiger looks awesome (and the team deserves special kudos for making talking animals work in such a realistic frame), but then again why chase realism? I can be impressed by how photorealistic your animals look, but what's the point when they don't have half the charm and soul of the cartoon version.

    p.s. the exception that proves the rule is Bill Murray as Baloo. Perhaps not the most adventurous casting, but definitely the right choice.
