    "I'll always love you"

    It's been a while since I reviewed anything but I'm going to try to get back to it. Though I say that every time but whatever.
    This movie blew my fucking mind honestly. The story was amazing and the acting was spectacular. But more than anything this was the most beautiful movie I have seen in a long time. Even if the story and everything else had sucked I could watch it again just for that. If this wins best picture I will not be unhappy.

    "You're such a smart boy"

    A movie that honestly had the potential to be really good falls completely flat in the end. This was a movie that sounded so very interesting but the complete lack of acting and honestly a story that never really went anywhere new or exciting made it boring.

The train concept was brilliant and entirely new. The colors on the movie, showing the different levels (getting brighter and brighter the higher they go), were genius.

    This would have been a 5 star movie but the ending disappointed me slightly.

    ★★★★½

    "Trust in me"

    My earliest memory of the jungle book is falling off the couch breaking my arm while watching the cartoon as a kid. This is a much better memory. The cinematography was fantastic and the cgi was the best I've seen in so long. Just wow. I loved this so much.

    Edit: I forgot to mention my one complaint on this. I did not think Christopher Walken was a good choice. I think he was a very weird choice.
