Remember when The Interview came out and everyone decided that seeing a silly little comedy was some kind of patriotic act of defiance to North Korea? The all-female Ghostbusters reboot is a lot like that—a silly little comedy that somehow ignited a culture war on the internet and became way more significant than it probably should have been.

For me, when it comes to Disney classics, there are old-school movies like Snow White or Pinocchio, and there are ’90s hits like Beauty and the Beast and Aladdin. Originally released in 1967, The Jungle Book falls into a sort of gray area between the two, so it seemed to most ripe for revival in the form of a CG-filled reboot. Thankfully, Jon Favreau’s take on The Jungle Book keeps all the spirit of a great Disney movie while letting the technology shine with superb CG.
Rock the Kasbah is a movie with so much potential. It stars Bill Murray, features Zooey Deschanel, Bruce Willis, Kate Hudson, Scott Caan, and Danny McBride. Murray even promoted the movie by showing up at Comic Con for the first time to do a genuinely funny panel and answer fan questions. With all that going for it, it’s such a shame the movie misses the mark by a mile.
