Sometimes... I dream I'm a tiger. But I always wake up a hyena.
I watched the movie with my little niece, and yes, there were tears, groans, screams and watching through fingers. She handled it a lot better and really enjoyed this adaptation.
It kept getting more violent and darker, in fact a little rushed in its third act, but still bloody good. Oh and the voice acting was really great - Christian Bale as Bagheera was just phenomenal.
