was angry that the film chickened out and made Zobrist and Sienna Brooks as villains. The book had a much better ending but will not give it away because it should be read especially in light of the overpopulation in the world

but it is too bad the film did not follow suit.

Yet it was clear that this probably be my only chance to see Mowgli (the film's onscreen title at both the beginning and end of the movie, though "Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle" is actually the official title) in a theater, so I went to IPIC and took my chances. The film began and looked a little off, in that distinctive way that a movie looks when it's projected in 3D and no one has bothered to hand out 3D glasses.

Funny...this is exactly how I felt when I saw Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse, and that was a 2D showing! I ran out to complain and grab a pair of 3D glasses because I thought they were showing the 3D version by accident, but no, the blurry, mismatched color scheme of the backgrounds was COMPLETELY INTENTIONAL, and it honestly hurt my eyes after a while. When I got home and read that it was a stylistic choice to evoke the look of an old comic book where the color plates weren't lined up correctly, I "got" what they were going for, but it was SERIOUSLY distracting.

I had a similar reaction to the Spider-Verse trailer. i was convinced they were showing the 3D version without glasses, not realizing that those color separation effects were just part of the visual design.

(I had to do a Google search to see that the first post was in reference to the "Inferno" reviews. I excerpted those so many weeks ago that I forgot who Zobrist and Sienna Brooks were.)
