Movie Review: The Jungle Book

The Jungle Book is an adventure film that had its premiere not so long ago. It is directed by Jon Favreau, mostly known for the Iron Man movies and Chef (2014). The cast is formed by Neel Sethi, Bill Murray, Ben Kingsley,Idris Elba and Scarlett Johansson just to name a few names on the bill.
The synopsis for The Jungle Book reads : “The man-cub Mowgli flees the jungle after a threat from the tiger Shere Khan. Guided by Bagheera the panther and the bear Baloo, Mowgli embarks on a journey of self-discovery, though he also meets creatures who don’t have his best interests at heart”.I was happy to see at the cinema that there were more kids and young adults than grownups watching and I must admit that my favourite character in the film was Bagheera. I really appreciated how he protected Mowgli during his adventure. By watching The Jungle Book I felt like I was reliving my childhood and it was a pleasant experience. I highly recommend this film as I believe it can be enjoyable for any cinema goer. I would give this film a rating of 8 out of 10.

The Boss Movie Review


Hi there and welcome to a new movie review, here on Rawmanian. Today I have seen The Boss, a film with Melissa McCharthy and Kristen Bell. This film is a comedy and if you have seen some other movies which feature McCharthy then you should be used to her humour. The Boss is directed by Ben Falcone, mostly known for Tammy (2014), What To Expect When You’re Expecting(2012) and Enough Said (2013).  A synopsis for The Boss reads :”A titan of industry is sent to prison after she’s caught insider trading. When she emerges ready to rebrand herself as America’s latest sweetheart, not everyone she screwed over is so quick to forgive and forget”.

If I were to categorize this film I would brand it as a family one as it is easy to follow and it has some nice humourous scenes. It was nice to see Kristen Bell as one of the main actresses as I appreciate her a lot.The villain was played by the brilliant Peter Dinklage, which you may know from Game Of Thrones.  The Boss is not an extraordinary film, but it is enjoyable, as it is filled with funny moments. You can’t expect to be knocked off your feet from this kind of  comedy to be honest, but it is fun to watch. I would rate it with a 7 our 10.

Listen to Tinie Tempah on an unexpected collaboration 

Tinie Tempah is an artist that I really like. I have been following his career since he launched Passed Out in 2009,which was the hit that thrown him to stardom. I managed to see him Live at a few gigs as well. He’s a good artist and what I appreciate at him is the fact that he stuck with the same genre of music that made him famous. Today I would like to bring to your attention a recent song of Tempah, Girls Like, a collaboration with the popular Zara Larsson who enjoyed success with tunes like Lush Life and Never Forget You.

Listen and watch the official video for Girls Like below :


Movie Review: Eddie The Eagle

Eddie The Eagle is a 2016 comedy inspired from the life story of British Olympic skier Michael “Eddie” Edwards. The film is directed by Dexter Fletcher, mostly known for Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels (1998) and Kick Ass (2010),and it is starring Taron Egerton and Hugh Jackman. A synopsis of Eddie The Eagle reads: “Inspired by true events, Eddie the Eagle is a feel-good story about Michael “Eddie” Edwards (Taron Egerton), an unlikely but courageous British ski-jumper who never stopped believing in himself – even as an entire nation was counting him out. With the help of a rebellious and charismatic coach, Eddie takes on the establishment and wins the hearts of sports fans around the world by making an improbable and historic showing at the 1988 Calgary Winter Olympics“.

What I loved the most about this comedy was how easy it made me laugh, and the storyline was linear, developing from one point to another. In other words it made sense and it was easy to follow. Not a lot of people know this, but I am a fan of ski jumping, having followed this sport for quite some time so for me to see a movie about this sport was pleasant. Another thing that impressed me in Eddie The Eagle was the soundtracks, which were jolly and appropriate for this kind of movie and atmosphere. It is fair to say that this movie represents the story of every underdog that has been told he can’t accomplish what he set his mind to, but in the end the determination strives. A personal rating for this film would be 8 out of 10. I highly recommend this film for a good laughter.
