The Jungle Book (2016)

This movie faithfully follows the original Disney movie of the same name, but this time with magnificently realistic appearing animals.  It was nominated for best visual effects, or essentially what can you do with a computer that you can't do in real life, and it was the slam dunk winner in that category.  So incredibly well rendered that the fact that the rest of it is almost exactly how I remember the movie from my childhood is irrelevant because I can't take my eyes off how magnificently well the animals work.  Mogli is a bit annoying, and the scene at the end where he out thinks Sher Khan is tense and anxiety provoking, but otherwise it is more of a marvel that a new story.  It is a live action rendition that celebrates what computer aided effects have to offer.
