Is it just me or is the animation and visuals in Jungle Book 2 ...really good? Like I actually prefer it to the sketchy style of the original movie?
Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely adore the animation of the Jungle Book, (Milt Khal and the boys, doing their best) and all of the original voice actors. But somehow the sequel feels a lot more cinematic somehow? There’s more close-ups and cool angles, and the scene where Shere Khan is stalking through the village, looking into homes of none-the-wiser humans? Is amazing. The blue-purple color palette, the shadows, the fact that as a kid I recalled feeling the need to be quiet because it was that atmospheric. I mean, you see he tiger skulking through open windows and doors, from the perspective of the inside of the houses. It’s a neat little touch to make it a little more tense.
The linework and backgrounds are also pretty top-notch. I keep looking at it and thinking damn, this looks like it had a budget.
(Though I do prefer Ed Gilbert to John Goodman as a voice actor to Baloo, he’s still pretty good, and honestly I think Bob Joles did an excellent job replacing Sebastian Cabot. And yes, Tony Jay as Shere Khan is always a win, though I liked George Sanders, I feel Tony Jay actually portrayed the Disney Version of Shere Khan more. Talespin, Jungle Cubs Born to be Wild, etc.)
Again with color palettes, The film starts at night, then goes to day, then dusk as Shere Khan makes his way to the village. Then night again. Then day, then dusk when Mowgli is trying to find Shanti after leaving Louie’s old hideout with the shadows and golden light - then you guessed it, to night again. The slow transmission between the time of day is actually really well done.
That, and the swamp part was cool to, with all the dull greens. I just really like the film’s style. Every scene has it’s own neat ‘look’.
Can you whoop that tiger?
I Shere Khan.

Can someone tell me bc I can't tell if the girl at Krispy Kreme was flirting with me or not????
Like she said she remembers me from Tuesdays (I've been going in the past few bc that's when I'm in physically for uni) and she remembers me as the girl with pretty eye makeup and then I told her she had pretty eyes, like her eye colour and her eyelashes aldkfjdksk and then she said 'aww I'm blushing' and then bc I couldn't decide to get I was like... what do you recommend? And she recommended one so I got it bc I'm easily swayed. And then she asked if I was a student for the discount and then I told her I had nearly finished (to imply how old I was bc I have Baby face™) and she was like 'i should be in your year but I dropped out. Then she gave me two vouchers and then I was like 'see you next week' to like... be funny. I don't know if she's straight but really nice or a little... *limp hand*
